The Complete Marylebone Bride Looks

With their expertise in weddings, hairdresser Daniel Galvin, bridal dress designer Stephanie Allin, John Carter Flowers, bridal shoe designer Aruna Seth and the Little Venice Cake Company got together to show us their take on the complete Marylebone brides.

The May Queen bride is bohemian in style and relaxed in her manner. She takes her inspiration form nature and much of her wedding has a home made organic feel.

 Dress: Ingrid  after Ingrid Bergman,  column shape in beaded chiffon with cinched in waist
Hair; Swept loosely up and soft around face
Shoes: Astrid- cream leather wedge embwllished with Swarovski Elements crystal and leather bow heel.
Bouquet: a loose and wild posy of English garden flowers artfully designed to look as though the bride picked her own flowers whilst walking through a meadow.
Cake: Painted orchid- incorporates the hand painting technique with the design of orchids in a chosen colour.

The Happily Ever After bride has a  fairy tale setting and is dressed to impress.

 Dress: Sofia dress is structured and made of heavy silk grosgrain
Hair: inspired by our own princess royal wedding the hair is kept long and flowing.
Shoes: Farfalla - ivory satin peep toe court embellished with Swarovski Elements butterfly on the front.
Bouquet: Romance is the inspiration for this classic bouquet.
Cake: Firenze- A fresh, traditional four tier cake with a crisp, beautifully hand piped Little Venice Lace design.

To the Manor Born bride has a country wedding at a picturesque estate

Dress: Martine dress, easy to wear fish tail for a garden wedding with lace straps
Hair: soft and romantic inspired
Shoes: Sherri - nude satin sling back with Chantilly lace details
Bouquet: Quintessentially English full bloom rose in various shades of pink, picked from the garden that morning
Cake: Lace Veil creates an ethereal entrance to a wedding. The cake is lustred and stacked offset before a hand piped lace design has been hand-brushed for a similar effect.

The Only You bride likes to stand out, with a wedding that is anything but tradtitional.

Dress: Garbo palazzo pants instead of a tradtitional dress, with lace shrug for feminine touch
Hair; Coco Chanel style vintage look
Shoes: Cerise - white leather peep toe shoe with grosgrain bow detail on the heel and a line of Swarovski Elements crystals down the heel.
Bouquet: a cutting edge and striking pure white bouquet
Cake: Couture Rock and Rose - The most opulent wedding cake! Supersized tiers encased in 24 carat edible gold leaf, adorned with noir roses each showcasing a nugget of 24 carat gold.

The Belle of the Bow bride is a city bride whose wedding is meticulously planned and flawlessly chic with an inner city venue and an exquisit haute cuisine

Dress: Olivia dress satin reversed to create different look, vintage look
Hair: inspired by Sex and the City when Carrie got married to Mr Big
Shoes: Samantha- white metallic python print peep toe court with platform
Bouquet: A simple but uber chic dome of seasonal flowers
Cake: Faberge - Faberge is one of Little Venice Cake Company's most popular designs. Classic and romantic, the hand piped design is based on a Faberge tiara. Tiers can be directly stacked or blocked with fresh flowers.

The Silver Screen Dream bride prefers a style from a time gone by taking her inspiration from stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

Dress: Hayworth dress with sweetheart shaped neckline
Hair: Dramatically swept up Hollywood style without a hair out of place.
Shoes: Josie satin court with swarovski embellished bow on the front
Bouquet: Flowers are super-luxe and styled to look totally sumptuous
Cake: 1950's Chic  wedding cake reflects a clean and comtemporary style.


  1. Hi there!

    I'm a bride getting married in mid June, and I've been searching for the perfect pair of shoes for my big day! I came across a picture of the Aruna Seth Astrid Cream Leather Wedge, and I just about died! These shoes are PERFECT for my dress, but I've unfortunately found out that they are no longer being carried by Aruna Seth.

    I was wondering if there is any chance the The May Queen would be willing to sell (or even lend) me their shoes for my wedding. I typically wear a size 8.5 or 9 shoe, so I guess I could fit in a 38.5, 39, or 39.5.

    Please contact me at if you think we could work something out.

    Thanks so much!


    1. Hi Lauren,
      Sorry but Aruna Seth only lent the shoes for the model to wear that evening. I'm surprised they don't stock them anymore as the shoes are still on their website. I'm sure you did try to phone them but just in case you didn't here's their nbr:
      020 8773 7859 .
      Their Colette ivory satin wedge also looks great - a but more expensive though.
      Hope you find your dream shoe and congratulations on your wedding
