My Obsession With French Wedding Dress Designers

I love the laid back style of this Certitude dress by Donatelle Godart.

It is no surprise that I have an obsession with French wedding dress designers. I have always loved the language French, I studied it as one of my A-levels, and even went to a French school for sixth form. I even dreamed of one day living above a bakery in Paris. Don’t ask me why, perhaps it was the romantic idea of waking up every day and being able to get myself some freshly baked croissants? Luckily for my waistline, that dream never materialised.

However, my obsession with all things French did continue. I love French cinema, and think French actresses such as Catherine Deneuve, (adopted Parisienne Janie Birkin) Clemence Poésy and Marion Cotillard have an undeniable charm and a certain je ne sais quoi.

I was not lucky enough when I got married to have the choice of French wedding dress designers available that brides to be have today. Donatelle Godart, Laure de Sagazan, Stéphanie Wolff Paris and Delphine Manivet can all be found at The Mews, Notting Hill.

Although all these French wedding dress designers are of course different from one another, I do believe that they share a natural innate style. I love these quotes about French style.

‘French style is more the way you mix the clothes, how you move, how you open your bag, how you cross your legs-just a little things that make a difference.’

Carine Roitfeld, the former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris

‘I don’t think that much about fashion. I suppose I like putting together outfits without too much thought and seeing what the outcome is.’

Vanessa Paradis

‘Style for me is a casual way of putting something on. It’s not thought out but needs to suit your way of life.’

Charlotte Gainsbourg

I hope you enjoy looking at some of the beautiful dresses I have picked out by some of my favourite French wedding dress designers.
