There's no better way to start a week than with a Midsummer Night's Dream of the most breathtaking wedding gowns. French bridal wear designer Delphine Manivet has earned our attention with her enchanting bridal collection for Spring/Summer 2012. There is something in this range to suit every type of bride: vintage inspired, bohemian chic, fanciful and feminine, short and sweet and modern functionality.
Whipped in a mist of vanilla creme and ivory, the collection unveils dainty gowns that allude to imagery of woodland fairies and medieval princesses. Manivet uses a host of luxurious fabrics that fall with grace: retro seventies slip dresses in glossy silk satin, airy organza and full tulle gowns, high waisted skirts in silk gaze, comfort-fit frocks in silk radzmir, the casualness of a shorts set and cotton tulle mini's, the delicacy of Calais lace and pretty ruffles, and the unexpected appearance of tweed and silk jersey.
Whether you're a summer bride-to-be, or just enjoy the daydream of running through a field of daisies in that perfect white dress, this collection will leave you in a blissful reverie.
My favourite picks from this exquisite range is Galileé and Aime, what are yours?
