NAIK & SHAHIN, A REAL QUALITY SWISS WEDDING IN LAVAUX

Dear Readers, future brides and followers, it is with immense pleasure that I share with you the photos of our beautiful bride Naik.

 

This beautiful, full of joy and good vibes bride came to see us at Belle en Blanc in June to find her dream gown for the true Lavaux wedding in October of this year… She tried a few dresses only and immediately fell I love with beautifully crafted, delicate beaded lace dress by Augusta Jones. The dress, called Liz, was unique to our boutique in Switzerland, as Olga had it made by the designer to fit the style of our lovely Swiss brides.

Naik looked just breathtaking in “Liz” dress, with deep v-neck cut in front, very low and open back and a flattering fit and flair, feminine silhouette. The gentle touch of beads with lace made the whole look just dreamy.

When I received the photos (only 5 weeks after the wedding) I was truly touched and moved. I have never met the husband of Naik, Shahin, but I was totally blown away with the way Shahin looks at his bride.

Oh dear, these two have something really special going on…. Now, don’t get me wrong, of course they are young and some might say naïve, etc…. but when looking at their wedding pictures, I really had tears coming down… this couple just feels special and the way they look at each other, well, it just touches me!!

Have a look for yourselves and do put in comments below, do you also have the goosebumps looking at this couple?? L.O.V.E

patiently waiting for the woman of his life ..

love is in the air

don’t we just love men who can kiss this way?

awwwww

stunning..

they are totally destined to be together , true love

this look again…. we are melting 🙂

CAROLINE CASTIGLIANO-HOW ITS MADE

We have just returned from our collection buying trip in London, where we have met with Caroline Castigliano personally in her beautiful Knightsbridge boutique. We had a lovely chat and saw some stunning gowns made by Caroline, but above all we discussed how her dresses are made to give the understated glamour, elegant and luxurious look that all brides want.

We noticed that in today’s bridal industry there is just so many cheap copies of beautifully crafted, handmade designers gowns, that for a future bride it might be difficult at first to spot the difference. Caroline uses finest silks and laces from worldwide known fabric designers, and it just makes all the difference combined with Caroline’s signature corsetry, which made her brand move to the top of bridal industry for decades now.

So, dear brides, please sit back and enjoy this video about craftsmanship behind your dressmaking at Caroline Castigliano.

 

Kisses to you all beautiful ladies,

Olga and Clara

BRAZILIAN WEDDING IN VOGUE

Not so long ago we were styling our beautiful Brazilian bride Thais for her wedding, at least this is what we thougth!! This not so long ago was in fact in early 2013, and when we heard back from Thais to help style her sister’s wedding, we realised, once again, just how quickly time passes!

Thais wore a understated silk mousseline floaty and sophisticated gown “Bacal” by Stephanie Allin, and we styled it with Caroline Castigliano sparkly belt. Stephanie Browne, our most appreciated bijoux desinger, offered to do a lovely bespoke headpiece with birdcage veil, and we polished the look with Diademe Bracelet and Diademe Earrings. The most stylish brides of Belle en Blanc choose either Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin stunning footwear for thier wedding day, and Thais opted for the latter, with gorgeous red bootoms, so recognisable! See how the entire wedding preparation and meticulous detailing came together to form the most wonderful day for her and Phil here

Our lovely Thais will come to see us in the boutique on Saturday, but we could’t help and share this wonderful video from her so very stylish and elegant wedding that took place in her home country, Briazi, on the 6th of July 2013.

We really love to hear back from you, our gorgeous brides, and there is really never too late to share your videos/photos with us here at Belle en Blanc,

Happy Wedding Anniversary Thais, xoxo

Winter Wedding Inspiration Shooting – The Alpina Hotel Gstaad

hello there… we’ve been quiet, but extremely busy for past months, but we have some Very Special news and announcements to share with all our lovely brides who already got their dresses for next year, as well as all our future brides, who booked in for appointments. Shhhh…. you have to be a little patient, and let us finalise some details, but fits, we are uuber excited to share with you the results of our absolutely breathtaking Winter Wedding Inspiration Shoot we had a pleasure  to participate some time ago.

One of our good friends, Lucie from Bliss Wedding and Events Designer, called in with this fantastic idea for winter wedding inspiration. We met, and things immediately started falling into place: the dress was a must to be this stunning Caroline Castilgiano “BeLoved” silk organza and handmade cotton beaded lace, with full skirt and stunning back detail! This was a perfect choice for the winter wedding celebration, and our brides love that gown- its a true stunner and show stopper not only for winter wedding.

We feel that with bridal season and fashion changing so quickly, this Winter Wedding Inspiration will truly show a lot of brides just how much fun and individuality you can create around winter season. The choice of beautiful hotels and locations is never ending in the Swiss Alps, and we, at Belle en Blanc have been seeing increasing number of ladies, who dont want a traditional summer wedding, and are opting for fun, white winter fun with cosy scenery of fireplace and very often Christmas ambiance in mountain locations!

The design of our inspiration shooting have been done by Lucie at Bliss, and Jennia from Jenia Sanguinetti photography couldn’t have done a better job with watchful eye and her camera lence catching up every single stunning detail of the setting, the dress, the bride herself, and all details that make up for unique and stylish wedding this one is! Big thanks to the Alpina Hotel and Spa in Gstaad  for eagerly agreeing to our shooting. For any bride, this place is truly a bridal paradise 🙂
