For the team here at Brides of Winchester, May has proved to be a very busy month. Firstly Hayley got married in the Bank Holiday weekend at Sopley Mill, looking fabulous in her Suzanne Neville wedding dress (separate Blog post on this to follow!) and then cutting short her honeymoon, we jetted off to Barcelona for Barcelona Fashion Week.

We were there to view the new Pronovias 2016 collection. The weekend started off with the most fabulous fashion show at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. Russian supermodel and Bradley Cooper’s new squeeze, Irina Shayk was the finale bride and star of the show.

Pronovias 2016  “Once Upon a Time”


A breathtaking array of beautiful dresses made their way down the catwalk – body-skimming gowns in fine embroidered laces over flesh-colored crystal tulle with sheer illusion detailing, seductive back treatments and trains.

The following day, it was down to business at Barcelona’s Palau de Congressos, where all the 2016 dresses were laid out and we had the difficult choice of selecting the dresses for the shop and boy it was tough, but we are so excited with what we have selected. So to wet your appetite here are some of the dresses we have chosen. Some we choose earlier in the year at Preview and have already started arriving at our Hampshire boutique.
