Brides The Show is back on 30th September – 2nd October 2016… and it’s set to be more beautiful than ever. Our October 2015 show saw designer Jenny Packham showcase her 2016 bridal collection on the Friday night, while Brides' very own Secret Garden catwalk showcased a collection of dresses from the very best designers this country has to offer. We’re busy working on plans for this year’s show, so sign up to the newsletter to find out more as new details are released.

Brides-to-be and their wedding parties can enjoy wine tasting, make-up masterclasses and talks from experts in the business, along with a fantastic line-up of some of our favourite designers, florists, cake-makers, stationers, photographers and venues. Our aim? To bring to life your vision of the perfect wedding day.

The Secret Garden Catwalk

Our October 2015 Brides The Show catwalk echoed 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 saw romantic, modern gowns in tumbling silk-tulle, lighter-than-air chiffon and delicate organza. Colours moved from the softest ivory to washes of pastel pink, peach, blue and luxurious metallics. Details included intricate rosebuds, 3D florals, leafy embroidery and beaded embellishment. Our 2016 catwalk will showcase the most beautiful bridal trends, hand-selected by Brides Fashion Director Bryony Toogood just for you!
