Today I am thrilled to share the exquisite 2018 Celestial Collection Bridal Gowns from British designer Naomi Neoh.
here are so many words that can be used to describe this elegant and romantic bridal gown collection but I think breathtaking just about encapsulates of how truly beautiful they are….
Images of these sublime creations were captured by Hannah Duffy Photography.
Naomi Neoh creates modern, elegant gowns designed for an utterly romantic bride.
She loves the swish of light billowing silks with delicate French lace finished with fine beading, crisp ribbon and silk rose corsages. Inspired by real brides, her favourite pastime is to create gowns for real women’s body shapes, using her innate understanding of line and cut to adjust each dress to flatter and fit.
A dedicated fabric addict, making wedding dresses allows Naomi to use the finest fabric with the most decadent trims and often a design will come instinctively once she has fallen in love with a new fabric.
Naomi did not set out to be a bridal designer. Reading Physics at Durham, she moved on to an IT job in the City and a Merchandising career before she decided to have a lifestyle change and gave up the conventional 9 to 5 to find a different path.
Sewing had always been her favourite hobby and a chance of fate led her to bridal design.
The first wedding dresses were born in 2008; an unconventional twist on the classic wedding gown with an unusual pairing of silk chiffon and French lace with blush undertones and fine silk rose corsages which have become Naomi’s signature look
The “Celestial Collection” is inspired by the wilderness of the heavens, the natural beauty of the sky, and the freedom of the universe beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.
Our signature light silk chiffon skirts swirl in a style reminiscent of distant nebula; new dusky mauve, silver-blue and delicate peach sunset hues sit beautifully with our signature blush pink gowns, and the addition of shimmering fabrics and delicate beading subtly sparkle like interstellar galaxies in the midnight sky.
New skirts of super light weight silk voile and soft Italian tulle swirl and move freely and elegantly in a way that our brides adore.
Delicate lace appliqué follows the natural form of the body, enhancing the beauty of a woman’s shape and a colour palette reflective of nature’s finest artistry sit at the core of this Celestial inspired collection.
The 2018 collection will introduce new and improved corsetry which Naomi and her team have worked tirelessly to perfect.
Always striving to further develop her designs, Naomi wished to keep the signature corsetry that our brides love but wanted to develop the structure to give a natural and comfortable look and feel.
The new elasticated corsetry still achieves the same support and svelte silhouette whilst giving the bride a completely smooth waistline and freedom of movement.
The opening of the Naomi Neoh flagship London store in early 2016 has also helped to connect Naomi even more to her brides.
Hearing their stories, opinions, and building friendships has always been at the core of how Naomi works since she first started out in bridal in 2008. When working so closely together in this way each of our brides become a muse to spark ideas and creativity for future designs.
She says… “We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another.”
“The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
