Temperley’s Spring 2014 Bridal Collection is no different. The sleek, vintage-inspired off-white selection will be taking pride of place in our Bridal mood boards (Pinterest & otherwise).

Sometimes going simple is the most unexpected way to make a statement. Choosing an unfussy, clean silhouetted wedding dress lets the most important thing take centre stage – you! Plus it allows for more in the sparkle department.

We’ve put together a few of our favourite simple styles for your viewing pleasure – best worn with gob-smacking pieces from our Tales of Endearment collection.

Say what you will about Sean Parker, he sure knows how to throw a wedding. The medieval fairytale themed nuptials of Parker and Alexandra Lenas in the Californian wilderness will be inspiring brides for years to come. We’re completely in awe of the silver screen-worthy setting. We’ll just forget about the fact that it cost upwards of $5 million and add it to our dream wedding folder.
