|On the left was an AMAZING Worth wedding dress, unfortunatley, it cannot seen, but it was decorated with small harebells, wich were made as a three dimension. Even they had little stamens from beads.|
|...but if you had money, you could wore the finest silk and lace.|
|I'm sure that everybody knows this Norma Hartnell dress... In real life is even more beautiful, it looks like a fairytale gown! Margaret Wigham was a lucky lady to wear it on her big day!|
|Not my photo, but yes, it was even more stunning in real life!|
|This is my personal favourite from the modern section. A black wedding dress from Lacroix, the golden details and a plushy flowers made this dress so stunning.|
|I think this gown was one of the firsties what I saved on my computer many years ago. I was happy to saw it in real life.|
Pictures from the book:
If you couldn't go to the exhibition, I really recommend to buy this book, there are a loads of coloured pictures almost from all dresses.
|This one reminds me to Georgina's wed dress in a The Duchess. Quite simply for an 18th century dress, but still very beautiful. 1775-80, British|
|Such a lovely countryside style dress from 1780. Jane Bailey chose a very fashionable fabric and robe á la polonaise. Matching shoes and hat are still in a very good condition, althought they looked very fraigle.|
|Such a stunning detail from Mary Elizabeth Williams dress from 1823|
|Eliza Larken's wedding outfit from 1828. Sleeves and pelisse are detachable, so she could wore as an evening dress later.|
|Baba Beaton an Alec Hambro, 1934. Baba chose a Medieval style wedding, her brother, Cecil Beaton designed this headpiece. Inspired by nuns hoods from the medieval times.|
|Ella Dolling and her husband, 1941, London|
|An also very touching picture from a bride, who is leaving her bombed house for her wedding.|
London, 5 November 1940
|1938 Monica Maurice must looked very extravagant in her red wed dress. She was the first member of the Association of Mning Electrical Engineers. As an independent and unconventional lady, she wore her favourite color at her big day.|
I just grab one of my favourites from this exhibition, anyway, all dress would be deserved to shown here. I loved the fact, that all of them had a special story behind them.
If you could chose, wich kind of dress you would wear at your wedding day?
