Choosing your dream wedding dress is undeniably one of the most exciting parts of getting married and here's where London boutique owners and their teams can help you choose the perfect gown.
Your local London wedding dress boutique will typically stock a range of wedding dresses from both UK and international designers to suit your fashion style and budget. You will also receive expert knowledge and guidance on how to select complementing accessories for your big day including tiaras, veils, shoes and more.

Your London Wedding loves the dreamy new Kerala Collection from London-based designer Olwen Bourke. This ethereal range of bridal gowns was inspired by the designer's trip to south India and draws influences from the lush flora and fauna. Perfect for the contemporary bride, you can expect delicate embroidered flowers, sweeping tulle skirts and breathtaking botanical designs. Not looking for traditional white or ivory? You'll find other beautifully soft shades here too. "Hints of colour add personality to the gowns," Olwen says. "It means that they can be worn again after the big day." With an artisanal approach, each gown is handmade to order. The cloths are cut at a small, family-run workshop in India, before being cut, sewn and handfinished at Olwen's North London studio. Olwen tells us, "I love to incorporate personal emblems or secret messages into the embroidery or lining, so that each dress is an original work of art."Olwen knows a thing or two about showstopping dresses, having designed custom gowns for Strictly Come Dancing, red-carpet events and evening wear ranges for fashion houses in London and Paris. She also collaborates with Monsoon on its bridal and bridesmaid range.
