Here’s some loveliness for a late Friday afternoon on a Bank Holiday weekend – wile away this last hour or so of work with a look through Stewart Parvin’s fantastic 2016 couture bridal collection.

Last Friday I had the pleasure of photographing up in London at Stewart’s Beauchamp Place shop, which had been utterly transformed for the day into an amazing catwalk runway. The amazing flowers were provided, crafted and installed (also cared for over 3 intense days of shows!) by the amazing Pinstripes and Peonies.

Leading wedding industry press were invited to the first showing of the new collection, and I can now share some of my photographs from the show. All I can say is the 2016 collection is stunning; brides lucky enough to have a Stewart Parvin gown are going to look amazing! There are some really fantastic dresses here, not least the one that was inspired by my wife’s one-off Stewart Parvin wedding dress!

Candids and behind-the-scenes will follow in a day or two, but for now – on with the show!
