About the Show

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the most beautiful Brides The Show yet!

Our opening night set the tone for a weekend of pure bridal inspiration. First up was a Brides exclusive, as designer Jenny Packham brought her new bridal collection to the Brides The Show catwalk. Brides'  very own Secret Garden catwalk show later showcased a collection of dresses from the very best designers this country has to offer.

The Imagination Room featured DIY inspiration set under a stunning cloud of balloons, and included elegant eclairs from Maitre Choux, wearable flowers with Zita Elze, on-the-spot styling by Suzanne Neville and Brides lifestyle stylist Laura Burkitt demonstrating how to bespoke your cocktails.

Brides-to-be and their bridal parties enjoyed wine tasting, make-up masterclasses, and talks from the best in the business along with a fantastic line up of the best designers, florists, cake-makers, stationers, photographers and venues on offer.

We hope that Brides the Show has taken you a big step closer to your perfect wedding day.

The Secret Garden Catwalk

This year the Brides The Show catwalk echoes the story of The Secret Garden, with beautiful references to climbing foliage and heavenly country garden florals, all inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic English novel, published in 1911.

Brides-to-be will see romantic, modern gowns in tumbling silk-tulle, lighter-than-air chiffon and delicate organza. Colours will move from the softest ivory to washes of pastel pink, peach, blue and luxurious metallics. Details include intricate rosebuds, 3D florals, leafy embroidery and beaded embellishment.
