The bride’s dress is no doubt one of the most important decisions when it comes to your wedding.

We take a look at some of the designers behind some of the most beautiful wedding dresses that the UK (and Ireland) has to offer.

Jenny Packham

With a flagship store in London and international stockists in New York and Hong Kong, Jenny Packham has become one of the most sought after bridal fashion brands, with international attention to boot.

The 2016 range features stunning classic looks. Lace plays an important part in much of the collection, taking traditional shapes and giving them contemporary flare.
