Happy Monday lovely readers,
Elizabeth here, stopping by, while Claire is off honeymooning in Belize. Yes, that's right, she's a married lady now (yay!) and I'm counting down the days till she shares her beautiful wedding photos and newlywed musings. If you missed her real bride diary posts, be sure to check them out. Her pre-wedding post got me all emotional – so much good advice every couple should read right there.
I'm actually in Barcelona at the moment, so we're quite the jet set wedding bloggers this month. If you want to see some behind the scenes, IRL musings, be sure to check out our Instagram stories. (It's mainly me, wandering about Barcelona, pointing out Gaudi buildings and eating way too many tapas so if you're not into that, you can always peruse the gorge wedding photos in our Instagram feed instead.)
Ok, enough chit chat…let's get onto the pretty shall we?
I can't think of a better way to kick off a brand new week than with this exquisite, ballet inspired, wedding dress collection by Hungarian bridal fashion house, Daalarna.
As you know, we love a bit of Daalarna around here – see past collections here and here.
A Ballet Inspired Wedding Dress Collection
The latest collection combines two of my favourite things, wedding dresses and ballet. Yes, I was that little girl who loved nothing more than twirling around in a tutu but (stupidly) gave it all up when I got to secondary school and quickly realised it wasn't ‘cool'. Sigh.
Anita Benes, the talented designer behind Daalarna, is a fellow ballet lover. Here she explains the inspiration for her dreamy new collection:
I have always been captivated by ballerinas. The amazing dancers move around on stage so effortlessly and gracefully yet there is an extraordinary amount of work, self-control and diligence behind each movement and smile. They are fragile yet strong, romantic yet determined. These characteristics inspired my latest collection BALLET.
I love that the campaign photos for this stunning collection were shot on the set of Sleeping Beauty at the Hungarian National Ballet with the Ballet’s own exceptional ballerina, Lili Felmery, bringing the collection to life. How perfect is that?!

Stunning illusion backs and necklines are often embellished with hand-crafted lace and paired with light fabrics. Timeless beauty, feelings of belonging and love are reflected in each of the Ballet collection beauties. Daalarna Couture brides can now truly feel they are a part of a fairy tale.
