This stunning sequinned style by Australian designer Karen Willis Holmes at Luella’s Boudoir is the perfect dress for the festive season. The sparkly sleek silhouette would look fabulous in a candle light setting and will add a touch of glamour to any winter’s day. The chic little bolero that is included with this design is also ideal for keeping warm on a frosty winter evening.  We selected a beautiful, statement headpiece from Victoria Millésime, with a nod to the bridal caps worn in the 1930s. The hand twisted rhinestone leaves and tiny sparkly ivory bugle beads sewn onto the fabric of the cap add the perfect bit of sparkle to go with a festive holiday wedding.

Rich berry reds are perfect for the winter season and evoke a rich and opulent Christmas feel. Strong colours mixed with soft fabric such as the tulle in Maids to Measure’s ‘Audrey’ dress is perfect for fashionable maids.

Winter weddings are becoming ever popular and we are seeing more and more use of  strong powerful colour these teamed with matching shoes create such a wonderful festive look.  Sparkling with rhinestones like the bridal cap, but in gun-metal jewel tones, this side tiara is perfect to add sophisticated glamour for the bridesmaid, and pairs perfectly with the cranberry tones.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
