Oh, we have such a treat to start your week with!

A treat in the form of lashings of tulle, a coating of Chantilly, and the most divine silhouette ever…

Meet Montreal, a glorious wedding dress from the brand new collection by Katie May.

If you don’t know Katie May’s fabulous work, she’s a designer whose super sexy, utterly romantic, totally beautiful gowns have been leading the way in the trend for backless wedding dresses.

And Montreal is a gown that epitomises her signature style for showstopping silhouettes.

To celebrate her new 2016 collection, the team at Katie May chose a select group of their favourite photographers, to create individual shoots that celebrated the story behind each gown.

And we’re so excited to share an exclusive first look at the Montreal wedding dress with beautiful images by Amanda Marie Studio.

With beautiful sheer panelling, a dramatic mermaid-style skirt, intricate cuff detailing and that iconic backless shape, we just love how this dress is both cutting edge and classic.

It also comes with the option of a zip-off skirt, so brides can transform it for hitting the dancefloor on their wedding night, or to make the perfect anniversary dress!

Scroll down to see the stunning shoot by Amanda Marie Studio, but first up, read a little more about Montreal from the talented lady behind it, Katie May…

From the Designer

Our Montreal is classically beautiful with her full and frothy tulle skirt, but sensual with her transparent, almost floating, sleeves and back.

Her silhouette is enhanced with the linear positioning of lace where the elaborate chantilly scallops sweetly kiss at center.

The blending of Italian stretch mesh, the garden chantilly roses, the layers upon layers of tulle, and the French heirloom chantilly lace create dimension and depth with warm ivory tones. 

The Montreal is our most luxurious and artisanal piece in our collection, designed for the endless romantic.
