Caroline Castigliano wedding dress Rosabella at Limelight Occasions near Leeds Huddersfield and Wakefield in West Yorkshire, Merry Christmas with Caroline Castigliano at Limelight Occasions, Merry castigliano at Limelight Occasions, Rosabella wedding gown from Caroline Castigliano's 2015 Opera collection at Limelight Occasions near Leeds Wakefield and Huddersfield, Caroline Castigliano Christmas window at Limelight Occasions,

One of the things we love at this time of year is choosing dresses to show case in our Limelight Christmas window. This year there was no contest – it had to be  our new Caroline Castigliano gowns from the 2015 Opera collection. Linda loves the traditional colours  of Christmas and cut red berry foliage from the Limelight garden to bring colour to our fir tree and snowflake theme. She then added luxurious wraps and gorgeous green and burgundy velvet ribbons to Caroline’s beautiful Mesmerising and Rosabella wedding dresses and Limelight was magically transformed!

The sophisticated simplicity and perfect cut of  Caroline Castigliano wedding dresses makes them a dream to style, whatever the wedding theme. For a winter wedding you can simply unwrap them like a Christmas present to reveal a gorgeous surprise such as an elegant low back. Add ribbon belts in sumptuous Christmas colours for  the ceremony then exchange for the glamorous sparkle of the Rosabella belt or add lustre with strings of pearls – simply stunning!

Mesmerising is a full lace wedding gown with a boat neck and an elegant and very low back. It is cut in the same style as Caroline’s Hepburn bridal dress, a stunning wedding gown made from a simple ivory mikado.  Rosabella is a perfectly cut strapless wedding gown with a high waist and full skirt. Limelight brides absolutely love these dresses and are travelling from all over West Yorkshire to order their Castigliano wedding dresses with us.

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without berries, fir trees and snow filled landscapes. These amazing gowns offer limitless styling opportunities for winter wonderland weddings. Team Charm School with Intrigue shrug for the ceremony then wow your guests with a change of look in the evening by adding a stunning vintage collar from Richards Designs.

 Thank you so much to Tracy Hirst whose beautiful images give us a glimpse of the photo opportunities for a beautiful English winter wedding.

Have yourself a very Merry Castigliano !

A huge thank you to our beautiful Limelight bride, Lerika, for sending us these amazing photos of her wedding against the stunning background of Cape Town. We are always thrilled when our brides email us their wedding pics and as we gathered excitedly round the computer on a cloudy Tuesday in September, we were immediately transported to Lerika’s wonderful wedding under the South African sun. What a lovely way to start our day!

None of us have ever been to South Africa – a visit is now high on our bucket list. The sheer scale of this amazing landscape makes for truly epic wedding photography.

What a talented photographer  – the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous bride. We love this neckline on Lerika- so flattering with her softly curled, shoulder swept hair.

Breathtakingly beautiful.

Lerika looks stunning in the Lizzie wedding gown by Essense of Australia that she chose at Limelight.

This lace fit and flare gown suits Lerika’s figure perfectly. The delicate beading shimmers in the sunlight and the softly flowing train adds romance and drama.

We love Lerika’s choice of summer flowers in shades of pink with ivory roses and flocks against her white lace dress. We especially like the way her bridesmaid’s flowers follow the theme through pink to a rich purple, luxurious against platinum chiffon. The warm, smoky shades of Lerika’s eye makeup compliment the rich highlights in her hair and her pale pink lipstick mirrors perfectly the pink shades in her bouquet.


Lerika’s lovely bridesmaid also chose her dress with us at Limelight Occasions. This gorgeous gown is simple, elegant and sophisticated and can be worn strapless or with spaghetti straps. The girls added this slim diamante belt  – a fab styling detail. We love Lerika’s styling choices from the pretty little Limelight garter to her stunning diamante shoes -and check out her jewellery! We particularly like the soft veiling laying simply over her hair – so elegant.

The venue styling is simply superb. The branches suspended from the ceiling with subtle lights are interspersed with contemporary chandeliers and give an intimate feel to an uncluttered open space. The floral centrepieces are joyous and the deserts mouthwateringly irresistible.

Congratulations to Lerika and Peter with love from all of us at Limelight Occasions
