For over thirty years, Jane and Maria at Mirror Mirror have been at the forefront of wedding dress design and they’ve been making fantastic individual couture wedding gowns for one and all, including celebrities and VIPs, since day one. They blend a unique mix of silks, laces, hand embroidery and beadwork to create an eclectic mix of beautiful dresses. Stylish, elegant and stunning, these regal gowns are truly awe-inspiring, and we highly recommend checking them out.
Fans of GoHen blogs will have noticed these guys made our list last year, but they’re just that good we couldn’t leave them out. Not only do they make incredible handmade gowns, individually tailored to each bride, but they also pride themselves on their minimal environmental impact. Sourcing organic, fair trade fabrics and using local manufacturing and zero waste pattern cutting techniques they really try to minimise their impact on the environment, and we think that’s utterly fab!
