Advice on Choosing a Beautiful Wedding Dress from James Davies Wedding Photography Nottingham

As a professional wedding photographer covering the Nottingham and Mansfield area, I have the pleasure of seeing a selection of absolutely beautiful wedding dresses. For many women, choosing the perfect wedding dress is one of the most important decisions that a bride can make for her big day. If you’ve set a date and still need to decide on a dress, I’ve put together a few examples of some of the wedding dresses I’ve been lucky enough to photograph. From gorgeous gowns to intricate embellishments, take a look at this lovely selection of inspirational images that may just help you along in your quest to find the perfect wedding dress!

Vintage Elegance with a 50’s Style Gown

This 50’s inspired dress with lace detail and eye catching fascinator is a winning look. The ankle length skirt with its visible lining adds a touch of vintage glamour, and gives the bride the opportunity to show off her beautiful shoes! I love the way that she has chosen a bright floral bouquet to compliment her on trend lip and nail colour, instantly adding a modern twist to this classic look.

Corset Style Bodices for Instant Glamour

A popular detail on wedding dresses from several eras, the corset style of a lace-up back adds instant glamour and elegant detail to a dress. Back closures on women’s clothes were traditionally a sign of wealth in centuries gone by, implying that the wearer had a servant that would help her to dress. You may make do with a willing bridesmaid these days, but the effect is still stunning! Using a thin sash of material, the dress is tied up at the back in a criss-cross fashion in the same way that a corset is fastened. This example includes delicate silk ribbon which contrasts beautifully with the floral appliqué and intricate beading on the bodice and skirt.

Traditional White Wedding Gown with Veil

A traditional white wedding gown with a simple veil is the perfect choice for a classic and timeless look. This gorgeous gown has a full skirt achieved with a layering effect using net and voile, perfectly complimenting the sheer fabric detail on the bodice and the elegant flowing effect of the veil.
