One of the unlikely perks of writing for a bridal website while being married is that you’re allowed to gawk at the most gorgeous wedding dresses without having to second-guess if the dress you had just purchased is The One. Because boy, would we have a hard time going through the 2014/2015 bridal collection by Temperley London without coming down with a serious case of bridal gown envy or worse, the dreaded wedding dress regret.
The trendless, timeless Iris bridal collection presents the most varied silhouettes by Temperley Bridal to date. There’s a 1970s inspired jumpsuit, a kaftan and voluminous, short styles. Our hearts were collectively set aflutter by two mullet gowns. The first is Aralia, a strapless silk organza dress with fitted corset and full short-to-long skirt featuring crystal and metallic stitch detail (pictured below and above, with Aralia short sleeved evening swing coat). Such a beautiful combination of striking lines with unique detailing.
And this is Pia, a lace structured dress with rose corded lace panels on the full skirt. Sigh…
“Iris introduces five new veil designs that accompany accessories from the classic Temperley Bridal collection; delicate lace shrugs and in-house designed collection of headpieces, combs and embellished sashes. In celebration of the Iris collection, a new scented candle was developed, ‘Grace’, the first Bridal candle in the collection.” Pia, shown with short Honor veil.
