#1 Amelie by Madi Lane
As one of only two Platinum Stockists of Madi Lane in the UK (housing one of the largest collections by the Australian designer), how could we not mention the label’s scintillating Amelie design? Born to be worn by the modern, free-spirited bride, its hard not to be swept up in this gown’s romantic allure and flowing A-line skirt. And, you’ll be delighted to hear, that with detachable sleeves in tow, this off-the-shoulder, floral appliquéd beauty proffers two looks in one (one for the aisle, and one for dancing in under the stars, barefoot and with vintage champagne in-hand).
#2 Grace by Vagabond Bridal
Meet Grace by Vagabond Bridal. For the bride who seeks an off-the-shoulder wedding dress with more of a laid-back vibe, Grace fits the criteria (and will probably tick every box on your list). Debuting a more relaxed take on the off-the-shoulder look, Grace instantly brings bridal cool to the table. Handcrafted in stretch crepe with a nifty off-the-shoulder panel and thigh-high slit (optional), she’s quite something to behold.

#4 Denver by Freda Bennet
Celebrated across the industry for their meticulous craftsmanship, tireless attention to detail and contemporary lines, the designer duo behind British label, Freda Bennet design, in their own words: “for real women”.
