Brides will adore the latest offering from wedding dress designer Sassi Holford

Let There Be Love: the British-made brand’s latest collection of 28 wedding gowns will have those on the hunt for ‘The One’ swooning

Reimagining modern femininity with confident, clean silhouettes, Sassi Holford has wowed once again with her new 2023 collection, ‘Let There Be Love’.

The gowns feature sumptuous textures, defined lines and intricate detail, highlighting the designer’s knowledge of the female form. Case in point: the elegant Brontë gown (below). The low back and column silhouette are designed to flatter, while the ruffle shoulders and train make a statement without overpowering. All gowns are made-to-order in England to help reduce the impact on the planet.

For lovers of figure-hugging silhouettes, the Taylor (below left, £POA) and Jennifer (bottom right, £POA) are sure to wow. The Taylor puts a modern twist on tradition: it flares into a chic fishtail, it has an illusion high neckline and plunging bodice while being covered in lace and the long sleeves keep things demure. The Jennifer is simple, but really packs a punch. It is designed to sculpt and enhance your figure, with silk crepe that will flatter the female form.

Meanwhile, ballgowns are back in a big way this season. Crafted from embroidered floral tulle, the Abigail gown (above right, £POA) has detachable sleeves which lends to its ethereal vibe. The feathered skirt of the Felicity gown (below left, £POA) makes it perfect for brides looking to make a statement.

A natural progression from the globally renowned 2022 collection, Love Conquers All, Sassi said, “I wanted to capture the essence of femininity using light and texture as my guide.” Guipure embroidered tulle, 3D satin organza flowers, feathers and pearls are combined with micro jacquard, soft Mikado and buttery silks to convey the romance of the collection.
