We caught up with one of our all time favourite bridal designers Amanda Wyatt to talk about her inspirations for the brand new collection! The ‘She Walks With Beauty’ collection uses a quality palette of fabrics that is second to none, the fabrics include the use of tulle and silk backed satins, vintage style, french laces, crepe de chene and a fairy-tale of shimmering silk satins.
Describe an Amanda Wyatt bride?
An Amanda Wyatt bride is a modern day bride who wants to look and feel totally fabulous on her wedding day, expressing their feminine and fun side through their perfect Amanda Wyatt gown and accessories.
What’s your favourite style from your latest collection?
I absolutely love the Winter gown from the She Walks With Beauty collection. It is the perfect classic gown for a wedding in the colder months. The long lace sleeves are perfect for covering up and look fabulous for a lovely candlelit and romantic winter wedding.
How do you decide on the names of your collections?
I’ve designed over 50 collections now so choosing the names can be difficult because the name has to reflect the collections. I take inspiration from beautiful poetry and the Blue Iris collection was inspired and the world of Greek goddesses. You have to remain constantly inspired, creative and ever passionate about each collection.
Do you and Charlotte Balbier share design ideas?
I am in constant contact with Charlotte on everything to do with our brands. We of course share design ideas and fabrics. Charlotte Balbier has had a major influence on the Amanda Wyatt brand over the past few years. Charlotte has overseen and implemented a complete re-brand of the whole look of Amanda Wyatt’s imagery and she is creative director of all of the Amanda Wyatt shoots. Charlotte Balbier is such a busy and creative daughter and I am extremely proud of all her hand work.
How many Amanda Wyatt brides are there every year?
Amanda Wyatt brides run into the thousands! We are blessed to deal with so many lovely and beautiful brides everyday. Our brides stay in touch with us and send us photos of their beautiful weddings and we often use social media to engage with our brides. We really do have the most gorgeous brides!
