I've long been an admirer of Kristie Kelly‘s romantic, feminine and delightfully dreamy dresses.
I mean is there anything lovelier than voluminous ruffles cascading down a stone staircase captured on film by Elizabeth Messina?
So it's such a treat to be sharing some of my favourite Kirstie Kelly gowns with you all today.
I have a feeling you're going to fall head over heels for them too!
Each of Kristie's designs exudes elegance and grace. From the slinky silk gowns to the fit-for-a-princess ruffled tulle skirts and short and chic dresses – there's a style to suit all manner of beautiful brides.
The Garden Collection
Kirstie Kelly shares a little about the inspiration behind her enchanting Garden Collection:
One of my favorite memories as a child is running through mazes in gardens and laying in the grass with flowers blooming everywhere. Who isn't inspired by a beautiful garden that has come to life with the seasons?
This collection was inspired by lush landscapes and an effortless lifestyle. The fabrics and colors are reminiscent of natural elements of a garden – silk tulle, textural soutache lace, tiny chiffon flowers that cascade on a lace bodice, unfinished edges and crinkled chiffon's. This is my garden escape!

Kirstie Kelly also designs beautiful veils and sparkly sashes as well as bridesmaids dresses and flower girls dresses. There's also a fab ‘Borrow Me' service – where you can borrow wedding dresses, accessories and bridesmaids dresses to try on in the comfort of your own home – with a personal stylist at your service only a phone call away.
Totally loving that option – great for brides who are not so keen on the thought of wedding dress shopping – plus you get to keep your borrowed items for two days, so you can truly take your time.
So…I know it's tricky, but can you pick your favourite dress and share it in the comments? I'd love to hear!
(Blossom – the short, fabulously flirty dress with a sparkly bodice and blush rose textured skirt has my name all over it.)
