Wedding Style Guide - Spring 2010

The Wedding Style Guide has released its Spring 2010 Issue and we at Karen Willis Holmes are loving the inspiration and ideas they have given us.

In this issue, Annabelle and the team have put together: “Hello Yellow” (page 116), which shows you how to celebrate romance in the most joyous of shades with plenty of fashion, décor and stationery ideas.
The flower theme is continued in their “Bloom Bloom” story (page 82) of floral detailing that brings just the right amount of ‘pretty’ to contemporary wedding style.

The Wedding Style Guide also has a great “Runway Wrap Up” (page 44) about the key bridal trends of the moment.  Experimenting with muted neutral and pastel tones adds instant personality and individuality to a gown.  With spring it’s all about ‘Flower Power’ with flower detailing, lace and floral embellishments adorning beautiful dresses.  Another trend is the strapless silhouette exploring knots, ruffles and embellishments to update this classic and popular option.

We love to read and see pictures of Real Life Weddings and in this issue we are lucky enough to have two brides featured wearing our Karen Willis Holmes gowns.

Claudine and Dominic

The imminent rain clouds didn’t damper Claudine and Dominic’s plans for celebrating. 
After an afternoon ceremony at Terrara House Estate the couple had a wonderful marquee reception on this amazing country property.
“The combination of family and friends really made for a spectacular night – there was so much love all around us”.

Claudine was picture perfect in our ready to wear ‘Veronique’ gown featuring a delicate French Chantilly lace bodice and full tulle skirt accented with a pink ribbon at the waist.  Her three bridesmaids complemented the atmosphere and picturesque location in organic sherbet shade dresses.

Margaret and Piotr

For Margaret and Piotr, they wanted to express the love for each other, family and friends in all aspects of their wedding, leading them to choose neutral colours and lots of elegant and simple styling components.

Margaret looked stunning in our ready to wear ‘Heidi’ Gown featuring a corded French lace bodice and georgette skirt to reflect the bride’s classic elegant ideas of the wedding.

The couple’s intimate ceremony was held at Patrick’s Catholic Church in Pomona and included 33 guests.  Margaret comments that “the reception was full of love, laughs, smiles, good food, wine and dancing,” and we can’t think of a better assessment of a fantastic wedding than that.
