Still searching for your perfect gown? Check out the elegant, sassy and oh so glamorous wedding dresses in this beautiful styled shoot from top boutique Abigail’s Collection


We love a good styled shoot here at Wedding Ideas, especially when they’re chock full of top suppliers and gorgeous ideas, just like this! This styled shoot, which can be exclusively revealed by Wedding Ideas, was created by the gorgeous Abi Neill, owner of award-winning Colchester boutique Abigail’s Collection. She teamed up with fellow Essex wedding suppliers Daniel Sakal and Spain’s Hall among others to create these wonderful shots. Let’s hand over to Abi to explain more…


“Spain’s Hall (a rather stunning Essex based wedding venue) is a gorgeous manor house set on a 2,000 acre country estate. Photographer Dan Sakal had been approached by the wedding team there to update their wedding venue pictures and, coincidentally, he had begun working with us at Abigail’s Collection – hey presto, a fabulous shoot project was born!” says Abi.

“Daniel from D&A Photography is a trendy, dynamic and uber-talented wedding photographer based in Essex. At just six years old he began snapping pics and has since travelled the world creatively capturing the most beautiful of photographs!”

“The first bridal gown worn was a stunning strapless sequined sweetheart fishtail by Mon Cheri called ‘Grantham’. This bridal look was all about the glitz and glamour of the big day. Model Demi’s hair was set into a cascading side sweep of gentle curls, fixed with a dominant diamanté hairpiece. Make up was strong, glamorous and feminine. A long chapel length veil was the perfect finishing touch for this gorgeous look.”


“Next up, Demi wore ‘Lisbeth’ a beautifully elegant Mia Mia gown by Alan Hannah featuring a divine, beaded lace neckline. With a little nod to the vintage trend, Demi’s hair was kept nude (no hair accessories) and styled into a gorgeously soft textured chignon. Eye make up was soft and punctuated with a sharp feline flick of eyeliner and a deep plum lipstick.”


“The last dress was an on-trend Alfred Angelo short lace gown featuring a sassy high-low hemline and a girlie sweetheart neckline. This look oozed confidence and was finished with a chunky necklace, high beehive hair and 60s-inspired make-up.”


“It was a long day, and we didn’t get as much sunshine as we had hoped for, but at least we got to show off these beautiful gowns – and stylish suits – in such a stunning Essex wedding venue!”
