For a formal church ceremony
Feline and unequivocally feminine, our Hampshire bridal dress is crafted from satin back crepe and follows the curves of the body with razor sharp precision. The architectural lines of the square neck and structured bust frame the shoulders and reveal a striking décolletage, whilst the chapel-length train adds a soupçon of solemnity fit for a formal church ceremony. The ultimate little white dress.
