The Dove collection is here and it’s our most daring and exciting collection yet…
The photoshoot took place at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, a delightfully picturesque location that complimented the collection perfectly.
The wonders of nature were a big inspiration for this collection, so it seemed only right to photograph our dresses surrounded by their influences.
Although the day began with fog, we were blessed to shoot the images on a sunny mid-July day, the perfect setting for the floral-filled collection…
The Flora is an eye-catchingly beautiful gown, the magnificent fabric and captivating silhouette create a truly breathtaking bridal look.
The pleated bust and accentuated waist adds shape and flatters any body type. The full pleated skirt creates that fairytale silhouette with a modern floral twist.
The dress is fastened with small covered buttons down the back, adding extra detail.
Florence, the gentler answer to the striking Flora gown, uses rose pinks and delicate greens to form the idyllic creation.
The considerable skirt and the sheer floral fabric work together to fashion a modern, one-of-a-kind dress with traditional undertones.
Florence also features sheer floral straps that cross down to the waist on the front and back adding delicate detail to the shoulders and bust.
Rowe channels elegance and feminine chic with its alluring fabrics and flattering silhouette.
The flowing fabric falls perfectly from the shoulders and waist creating a beautifully angelic look.
The dress consists of a slip dress worn underneath the patterned weave tulle overlay.
The fabric is pulled in at the waist with a lovely delicate beaded trim detail.
Evita can only be described as the show-stopper, the daring and eccentric gown from the Dove collection will turn heads whether it’s worn as a wedding dress or simply an evening gown.
The dress features the same bold fabric as the Flora, adorned onto a glamorous gold sequinned fabric.
The main feature of the gown is the seductively low back with the illusion of bright exotic florals climbing up the bodice and over the shoulder.
The Evita has a zip down the side of the gown for a discreet fastening.
Amaris is a more simplistic dress with a slender silhouette and intricate details that create a charming bridal gown.
The fine champagne sequinned fabric forms a godet at the back that beholds a lovely subtle train.
The lace top features an open back and a silk-touch satin bow just under the bust to add shape as well as detail.
The gown is fastened with a concealed zip at the back as to not distract from the beautiful fabrics.
We had a wonderful team by our side for the day consisting of, Hair by Caronwen Dakin, Make-up by Nicola Anderson, photography by Jon Turtle and of course our gorgeous models, Gabriella Francésca Jukes, Alyssa Fern and Laura Kirkham-Jones. The flawless head pieces were created by Forbesfield Flowers in Cardiff.
The Dove collection is now available from the Amy Mair Couture studio and the Rachel Burgess boutique.
