We’ve got some sheer prettiness to share with you lovelies this morning.

Imagine walking down the aisle in a dress made of over 1200 fresh flowers!

Last week was all about the blooms here in London, as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show took place. And to celebrate, the show’s sponsor, M&G Investments, commissioned one of the UK’s leading floral designers, Larry Walshe, to create something special…

A magnificent wedding gown, cuffed and collared with hundreds of beautiful blooms.

The incredible dress was adorned with more than 1200 real flowers, with delphiniums, hyacinths, spray roses and limonium. It took over 200 hours to produce (no big deal!).

Fluid and dreamy, the fabric the floral gown was made by skilled artisans, with soft grey voile and silk, before the intricate floral embroidery was added to the edges.

Inspired by 1930s style and the ‘Lady of the Lake’ aesthetic, with a dropped waist, billowing sleeves, and sheer design, the dress draws in Larry Walshe’s renowned talent for opulent design.

Using his signature use of lavish textures and rich colours, with a palette of blues, purple and pinks, to create something delicate, pretty, and dramatic.

Feast your eyes on this incredible fresh flower-adorned wedding dress, with gorgeous photographs by Kate Nielen Photography.

Isn’t it special! So you might not get to adorn your gown with so many flowers on your big day, but it’s certainly giving us ideas for bouquets, flower crowns, and maybe seeking out wedding dresses with colourful, floral embroidery.

Thanks so much to Larry Walshe and Kate Nielen Photography, for sharing this really unique wedding dress with us.
