Mark your diaries stylish brides to be! Brides The Show is taking place next month and bringing together a carefully curated collection of bridal companies and wedding experts, bridal designers and their latest gowns. Visitors can expect catwalk shows, workshops, wine tastings, beauty master classes, Champagne and much more.

A collaboration between Condé Nast Brides magazine and SME London (London Fashion Weekend, Art14 London, Feast), shows on The Catwalk will feature the latest collections from UK and international designers including Amanda Wakeley, Caroline Castigliano, Phillipa Lepley and Stewart Parvin as well as bridesmaid dresses by Nicki Macfarlane – all styled by Brides’ fashion director, Bryony Toogood.

The Imagination Room will stage live workshops on everything from bespoke bunting to personalised favours, hosted by the designers and experts themselves while brides-to-be can book in at the Bobbi Brown Bridal Beauty Studio for industry insider advice and also take their seats at The Sommelier’s Table to scope out the finest wines, Champagnes and food trends with tastings and demonstrations galore.

There’s also the Iconic Wedding Dress Exhibition, in partnership with American Airlines where visitors will marvel at a collection of over 20 wedding dresses on loan from royals, stars and personalities including Darcey Bussell, Coco Rocha, Marcia Cross and Joan Collins.

As part of an ongoing initiative by Brides magazine to raise £100,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity every customer purchasing tickets to the show will have the opportunity to make a donation to the charity.
