Having made an early Sunday morning train journey down to London I travelled across town and arrived at Battersea Park, the venue for White Gallery London 2013. This was my first visit to White Gallery and I was intrigued to see whether it was as fabulous as I had been told it was going to be. I have to tell you, it did not disappoint!
The show is an ideal opportunity for UK and international buyers and press to preview the new collections of a range of fabulous bridal designers and provides a great insight into next year's bridal trends.
There were around 70 designers exhibiting at White Gallery and today I want to give you a taste of the atmosphere and the quality of this showstopping event with a few exhibition photos and a selection of images from some of the collections which were included in the Designer Preview catwalk show - all captured by Christopher Dadey.
Some of the delicious treats for visitors to the show.
Gorgeous floral displays by Jayne Copperwaite Flowers.
Buyers and press had the opportuntity to meet the designers and to find out about the inspiration behind their new collections.
The Designer Preview was a lively showcase from a number of top designers. Here are just a selection of the beautiful designs from the new collections of Lusan Mandongus, Annasul Y and Elizabeth Stuart that caught my eye.
I know I've said this already but I'm truly smitten by this beautiful veil by Elizabeth Stuart. It was definitely my highlight of the Designer catwalk show. So very beautiful!
Until next time.....when I'll have more gorgeous gowns from the White Gallery Designer Preview catwalk including designs by Charlotte Balbier, Yolan Cris, Sadoni and Naomi Neoh.
