'Bridal is a highly romanticised version of Temperley mainline – and 
an area of design I thoroughly enjoy. There is a full range of different 
styles, for different body shapes in Iris, all designed with the 
aesthetic I believe in; elegant, feminine, ethereal and timeless. Each 
dress has to be the perfect blend of functionality and fantasy - a bride 
must never feel overwhelmed by her dress but allow them to be the 
ultimate version of themselves, making the bride look effortless and 
elegant. Your bridal dress exists in a moment in time and is made for 
the woman wearing it not the trend of the moment.' -Alice Temperley

This is how I felt when choosing my wedding dress, I wanted to feel like 
the prettiest, most amazing version of myself whilst still being 
classically elegant and true to my style. The photos of dresses that 
come out of New York Bridal week may look amazing and edgy and on trend 
but when it comes to choosing your wedding dress, photos of which will 
be passed down through generations to come you really want something 
timeless. And this is what I love about Temperley, they're all so 
incredibly special with luxurious embellishments yet are still so 
delicate and will stand the test of time.

I was invited to Les Trois Soeurs Bridal Shop for a Temperley Trunk Show 
a few weeks ago to view the whole collection. If you're in London it 
would be worth booking an appointment to go and try some of them on! 
Here is a little sneak peek at some of the ridiculously pretty 

Celine Dress


The silk satin flows to the ground and shifts to a chapel 
length train. The straps are heavily encrusted with large Swarovski 
tones and pearl beading, whilst the back of the dress falls into a deep 
cowl revealing the most extraordinarily beautiful hand embroidered 
tulle, expertly adorned in the finest Swarovski crystal in various 
different shapes and sizes, silver bugle beads, pearls and hand folded 
organza flowers.




April Dress


Made using the finest French lace, the Temperley Bridal April 
Dress has a timeless and supremely glamorous appeal. With an almost 
column like silhouette, the waist of the lace wedding dress is cinched 
and narrow aided by an internal corset while the skirt falls full to the 
floor. Lace is sheer around the high neck, showcasing the floral design 
and scoops to a low back revealing a tantalising expanse of skin and a 
beautiful high, full train.





I think this may just be my favourite of them all.





Angeli Lattice 

The sheer sleeves are intricately embellished with 
Swarovski crystals and beads, whilst the layered silk-blend chiffon 
skirt gives it a soft, feminine feel. The dress is detailed with a 
hook-fastening grosgrain waistband and crystal button fastenings along 
the back.






A mix of lace and vintage 
glamour. The open back makes it sexy with a small train to keep it 





An absolutely one of 
a kind, this dress stands apart from all other gowns by the sheer nature 
of the intricate and unusual brass artwork which is encrusted around the 
neck line, and which swoops down to a very low v at the back. The main 
body of the dress is fashioned from silk georgette which falls from the 
neck to the hem in an unbroken line and hugs the figure in a glamorous 
column silhouette.




This stunning floor 
length silk chiffon gown incorporates the finest of fabrics, whilst 
showcasing an intricately embellished tulle panel across the bust , 
mirroring this technique on the waistband. The hand embroidered lattice 
is made from silver bugle beads and a mixture of clear, opal and 
alabaster Swarovski crystals.





The Jessamine dress is defined by the exquisite nature of the extraordinary 
French flower vine lace which has been hand embroidered with silk cotton 
and further embellished with Swarovski and sequins. The flower vine lace 
was sourced by Alice and her team in one of the most prestigious fairs 
in Paris and is produced by one of the oldest lace artisans in the 
region of Chantilly.


Which is your favourite? All rather pretty aren't they. I think wearing 
a flower crown is compulsory if you're going to be a Temperley Bride.

With thanks to Les Trois Soeurs Bridal, a beautiful boutique with all of 
these dresses and more.
