Love in later years. Many ladies marry in later life either through a busy career or bereavement or just through pure coincidence. At the Nigel Rayment Boutique London and Manchester, we have handpicked a selection of stunning occasion wear outfits that are just perfect for that intimate wedding in either a hotel or marquee.
Many of the outfits have sleeves so after the top table speech you can remove your jacket and still feel confident. Many designers like Ronald Joyce by Veni Infantino, Condici or John Charles have created outfits with this in mind, and not forgetting Pronovias 2017 collection who’ve launched there mature bridal prices that aren’t all frills and lace in ivory but beautiful pastels for that perfect wedding feeling.
We’ve selected a few pieces that you may love for that Big Day.
Over time, Rosa Clará has become an almost equal force to be reckoned with in occasion gowns. The collection for mothers of the bride and event goers is soon to come to the London and Manchester boutiques of Nigel Rayment, but across Europe and Latin America these super-glamorous gowns are already very well known. Brand ambassadors such as Mexican actress and entrepreneur Paulina Rubio and America’s Eva Longoria have been among many distinguished wearers on the red carpet. “As with our bridal collection,” says Rosa Clará, “we aim to create designs to meet the needs of real women. We offer a huge variety of designs and silhouettes and dress women of all ages. I would say we have had the good fortune to dress women with a lot of style – the kind of women who set trends and understand the value of a good gown.”
A leading British name in occasion wear founded in 1913, Shubette Group remains a London-based family business. Its flagship Gina Bacconi label is defined by beautiful fabrics and sharp but feminine designs that retain a youthful and confident profile – perfect for high-summer and international weddings where style and cool comfort are the order of the day.
The core of the Gina Bacconi occasion collection is lightweight luxury dresses paired with softer cover-ups and capes – rather than the traditional tailored jacket. These designs offer a flattering and feminine profile, with all the style a mother of the bride or groom is looking for on such an important day. Gina Bacconi’s clever design elements – including lace over-tops, shifts and coats – can also be removed at day-into-evening celebrations to add comfort and versatility to the outfits.
The latest collection includes a range of co-ordinating silken wraps and headpieces to complete your glamorous wedding look and Nigel Rayment boutiques London & Manchester offer a fabulous selection of shoes and bags that can be dyed to match your outfit perfectly
