Gorgeous wedding dresses for your 2023 wedding.


As a wedding photographer, I’ve seen some beautiful dresses and their alternatives over the years. I’ve always admired the women who have truly made their wedding dress their own whether they bought it off the shelf or went for a bespoke option. The world is your oyster when choosing your wedding dress with lots of options for accessories too. There’s plenty of options out there for every type of bride whether you’re looking for a classic gown, a fitted romantic number or a more adventurous bohemian style.

Suzanne Neville at Sharon Hoey Bridal Boutique

Lorraine initally struggled to choose between a fitted dress and ones with fuller skirts, in the end, she didn’t have to choose! She chose a beautiful Carmella dress from the Suzanne Neville line at Sharon Hoey Bridal Boutique in Dublin. The fantastic Sharon was so helpful and made a detachable skirt so Lorraine didn’t have to decide between styles. ‘They completed the alterations, shortening the train so I could dance the night away!’ So if you have your eye on a particular dress and it’s not quite right or you are stuck between styles consider getting an alteration to create your perfect dress for your 2021 wedding!

Rue De Seine at The White Gallery

The second mention of Rue De Seine on the list, I simply couldn’t exclude Irene’s stunning wedding dress! When looking for her wedding dress, Irene wanted something romantic, bohemian and feminine. She found her dream Rue De Seine wedding dress at The White Gallery in Newry. With white french lace, delicate buttons along the back along with a beautiful train, Irene was delighted she had found the perfect dress. The high low hem meant she could show off her gorgeous white and gold Ted Baker wedding shoes. As her wedding was in the depths of October, Irene wanted something to cover her shoulders from the inevitable chill. She commissioned Jill Wilde at Wilde by Design to make a bespoke cape so she could brave the elements. She also made her veil which was a perfect match for her French lace gown.
