Wedding dresses for the effortlessly chic bride: see the gowns

09 JUNE 2014

Daring scooped backs à la Kim Kardashian, long laced sleeves in the style of the Duchess of Cambridge, and floral overlays harking back to Poppy Delevingne's wedding dress — all these traits feature in bridal house Maria Senvo's latest range.

Founders Ryan Wilkinson and Holly Cuthbert have shared images of their fashion-forward gowns, which Make Up the Fifteen Collection, with HELLO! Online.

Maria Senvo's "Rye" gown

When designing their debut pieces, Ryan and Holly looked at women's everyday style and thought about how a bridewould want to feel on her big day — individual, unique and effortless.

"Kate has brought on the revival of the sleeve," Ryan told HELLO! Online, speaking about Prince William's wife . "Many of our pieces from the Fifteen Collection have a wrist length sleeve and it seems they are set to be our most popular styles for the new season."

A personal favourite for Ryan and Holly, however, was Grace Kelly's 1956 creation, which featured a fitted lace bodice and bell-shaped satin skirt, fused together with a pleated waist.

"Her gown when she said her 'I Do's' to the prince of Monaco was arguably the most beautiful dress to span 50 years and I know many of our brides would still wear it today!" said Ryan.

The designer also gave his predictions for this year's wedding dress trends, which included "experimentation with shapes and colour" and "scoop back details and lace edged scalloping".

Maria Senvo dresses are currently stocked in 15 boutiques nationwide and start from £1,600.
