If you want your wedding dress to truly wow everyone on your wedding day, a beautiful back is definitely the way to go. While you and your partner are saying your vows, your family and friends have a full length view of the back of your bridal gown and plenty of time to take in all the gorgeous detail.

D2478 by Essense of Australia is the perfect example of a fitted wedding dress with a low open back and lace straps. The floral lace edging is elegant and romantic with a hint of sexy and draws the eye down to the waist.

If you love a wedding dress with the drama of lace but do not want too much back exposure Essense have it covered with D2711

The transparent lace sits just beneath the shoulder blades in a gentle V and creates a very pretty back which is not too low.

For an exotic destination or beach wedding delicate back straps and backless wedding dresses are hard to beat in plain, beaded or lace fabrics.

A pretty peep hole back always turns heads; and this boho wedding dress with ivory lace over a soft cafe colour and high waistband with lace straps forming a fashionable triangular shape will wow guests at a rustic wedding in a barn or woodland – D2607

This plain mikado fishtail wedding dress has a sparkle beaded peephole back which absolutely oozes vintage glamour – D2177

Of course, you don’t have to bare any flesh at all to have a show stopping back on your wedding dress. A fine tulle with lace motifs or beaded detail can create the illusion for you with stunning effects.

Wedding photographers love nothing more than a romantic shot of the happy newly weds walking away from the camera hand in hand. A wedding dress with an illusion back is always stunning in this kind of shot. This off the shoulder fishtail lace wedding dress D2322 by Essense is a perfect example.

Whether your wedding dress is figure hugging

or a fairy tale ball gown a full lace back adds to the wow factor,

while simple, long sleeved wedding dresses with low back backs such as Essense D2972 are stunningly elegant and sophisticated.

 

Wear a lace wedding dress with long sleeves and a low back for that timeless, iconic bridal look.

Nothing shows off beautiful shoulders like this A line wedding dress with a classic bodice  and off the shoulder drape straps which add instant wow factor to the back of the dress.

And finally …when looking for the wedding dress with the perfect wow factor back, don’t forget the classic strapless bodice … just look at our beautiful Limelight bride Katya at her wedding in St Lucia …

WOW

Getting together with photographer Sarah Brabbin, florist/event dresser Jane (better known as the Woo B Woo fairy) and baker extraordinaire Jeanette Moorhouse for a photoshoot is always a great day out , because it means working alongside incredibly talented people to create… well … an entire wedding… while having lots of laughs – what’s not to love? All that was missing from the beautiful wedding venue in the Standedge Tunnel Visitor Centre was a groom!

Haley and I arrived with our gorgeous models Kaye, Sarah and Claire clutching armfuls of soft spirit wedding dresses to fit Jane’s boho brief, to find the others hard at work setting up the stunning Thomas Bourne room for the wedding reception. Jane was filling the grade II listed warehouse with flowers in this seasons colours and laying the tables with pretty vintage pieces, while Lisa was creating works of balloon art among Peter’s amazing light Installations. Jeanette’s mouthwatering cakes were sitting within circles of twinkling lights and greenery and Bev, the venue’s brilliantly organised wedding coordinator, was liaising with the boatman so our brides could arrive by barge. A quick change into layers of tulle and wellies and we were all set to take to the waterways.

Standedge Tunnel, Britain’s longest, deepest, highest canal tunnel is one of the seven wonders of the waterways and helped to fuel canal mania and our industrial revolution. The tunnel lies 194 metres beneath the stunning Standedge moors in the Yorkshire Pennines and the beautiful visitor centre and wedding venue was once the tunnel warehouse storing coal,wool and grain ready for transportation from Huddersfield to Manchester.

Sarah had already been on a reckie of the waterways and chosen the locations for the shoot so the girls hitched up their dresses and we all clambered into the barge that now transports brides on their wedding day. These are the stunning results:

The combination of industrial and rural landscape makes Standedge a unique photographic location.

                           

                   And then it was up to the ceremony room beautifully lit and dressed by Peter, Jane and Lisa …

                       

Which gave us the perfect opportunity to shoot the custom made veils that Claire designs and creates.

And finally it was down to the Thomas Bourne room where all the after ceremony fun takes place.

               

Loving the dreamy evening light…

             

Huge thanks to all these very talented and very lovely people, to the wonderful Sarah Brabbin for her amazing photography and to our stunning models Sarah, Claire and Kaye. Sending lots of Limelight love and congratulations to Kaye, Kyle and Archie … our very favourite photo of the day…xxxx

By popular request, Giles Turner of Eternity Bridal, returns to Limelight for another eagerly anticipated designer event that has our brides queuing up to find their wedding dress with guidance from this renowned bridal stylist. An expert in his field with an impressive resume, including television appearances, Giles has helped literally thousands of brides to pick the perfect bridal gown, travelling the country with the latest styles hot off the Eternity bridal catwalk.

    

Giles CV includes styling brides in his own, very successful bridal boutique, before joining Eternity bridal as Sales Director responsible for working with independent bridal boutiques  – hosting catwalk shows to help them select the very best gowns from the brand’s latest wedding dress collections and advising on the latest trends with styling tips guaranteed to turn heads.

The Limelight team have always enjoyed working with Giles. He is fun, and dare we say flamboyant? He gives honest opinions – totally telling it like it is – and our brides love him not least because he has an uncanny sixth sense about which dresses will look truly amazing on them!
