Jenny Packham 2017 Collection Preview Event   Galgorm Resort, hosted by Castle Couture   We had the opportunity to have a chat with Bridal designer sensation Jenny Packham on her new 2017 Collection. She shared her inspiration behind the collection and offered up her expert know how on choosing the perfect wedding dress.   To celebrate the 2017 bridal collection, Jenny Packham is delighted to be hosting an exclusive preview of the 2017 collection with Castle Couture at the iconic Galgorm Hotel on Thursday, 19th January 2017 from 6pm-8pm.   The event will offer brides-to-be an exclusive Salon Privé Collection presentation of the complete 2017 bridal collection and guests will have the chance to meet Jenny over champagne and canapés.  Ticketscost £25 per person, with limited availability To book your tickets please contact  weddings@galgorm.com    What can we expect to see in the new collection and what the inspiration behind it?  The 2017 Bridal Collection was inspired by the American Midwest and the afterglow of a wild night. We found a rolling countryside landscape with wild horses to shoot the campaign. This collection is a seasonal colour palette of celadon green and barley - we also added starburst embellishments and wild flowers embroidered on to tulle bodices and sleeves, which have been very popular.    In 3 words describe a Jenny Packham dress?   Soft, romantic and feminine.     What advice would you offer to brides when choosing a wedding address?  Try lots of different  styles and silhouettes until you find the dress that makes you feel wonderful and most importantly - enjoy the process!    What is your favourite dress from the collection?  It is always difficult to choose! A current favourite is Pippa, an ivory silk chiffon gown featuring a crystal embellished tulle bodice made up of over 2,000 crystals and sequins.   What is the ultimate accessory for a Jenny Packham gown?  When it comes to accessorising, I am a firm believer that accessories should compliment your look, rather than compete with it.

            DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE at  ARCHIVE 12     'Every place on earth houses a group of women unlike the rest. They are the vagabonds, the hippies, the outlaws. They are the wanderers and the starry-eyed. Each of our bohemian style wedding dresses are designed with these in mind.' Daughters of Simone are the newest addition to the Irish bridal market. Taking its name from philosopher Simone de Beauvoir and founded in the U.S. by two sisters inspired by their mother's 1970's wedding dress, Daughters of Simone dresses aim to bring unhindered unorthodoxy with antique lace, billowing sleeves and soft crochet patterns for the carefree, natural bride. The collection is now available exclusively in Ireland at Archive 12
