We are absolutely delighted to present our second collection of wedding gowns, titled 'Cynthia Rose'. Named after the paternal grandmother of designer Hayley Claire Neil, the collection dresses are subtly inspired by styles from the 1960s and 70s, and (staying true to our proud 'made in England' ethos) are all named after native British plants and wildflowers.
Four of the six dresses have delicate sleeves and most of them also have sheer, slashed, open or plunging backs for an added flash of skin and extra back detail for that breathtaking entrance whilst walking down the aisle. All the dresses are lined in breathable eco-friendly bamboo/silk charmeuse or habotai silk, and the other fabrics featured in the collection are 100% silk crêpe-backed satin, laser cut embroidered lace, and beautifully fluid yoryu chiffon.
The dresses are designed with comfort in mind, but with an emphasis on grace and femininity for easy-to-wear dresses which are coolly beautiful but which let brides have the freedom to dance the night away, swing their children around in the air, or hop on a motorbike and ride into the sunset.
'Rose is my colour, and white
Pretty mouth, and green my eyes
I've seen men come and go
But there'll be one who'll collect my soul
And come to me...'
- PJ Harvey, 'Angeline'
