Minimal Bridal Style

The dress edit: minimal & modern

Simple, chic gowns styled with beautiful botanicals make for an achingly modern wedding

For brides seeking no-fuss fashions, there’s a seriously stylish choice of simple, impeccably cut silhouettes in the latest bridal collections. This styled shoot exemplifies quite how striking a ‘less is more’ aesthetic can be – teaming minimalist dress design with stunning accessories and flourishes of botanical detail.

Charlie Brear’s fashion-forward dresses have long been the choice for brides with an eye for cool, modern style and minimalistic, luxe gowns continue to be a mainstay in their latest collection, currently gracing the rails of Lovely in Honiton.

From sleek shapes and deep V-necks to softly draped backs, these incredibly chic dresses are a dream for brides seeking to make a statement with their own styling, whether it’s glamorous jewellery or glorious headdresses – here, star-tipped crowns and headdresses of dried flowers ensure an all-eyes-on-you look.

The crisp aesthetic continues in the details, from the stationery with its elegant typography to the simple white cake adorned with hedgerow-inspired flowers. Completing the look, the floral installation – a medley of grasses, foliage, shimmery lunaria and dainty flowers – makes a beautiful botanical feature against the bright white walls of Higher Holcombe – the delicate, organic beauty the perfect contrast to the clean, contemporary aesthetic.
