Pronovias sample sale

We’re so excited for our upcoming Pronovias sample sale on Sunday the 24th of April. We’ve picked out a small selection of what will be on offer. If you’re looking for timeless romance and simple elegance then Pronovias dresses are what you’re after. From sleek body-hugging silhouettes to dramatic ball gown designs, our collection of wedding dresses has something for every bride.

The ‘Belwe’ dress silhouette creates an elegant and timeless look. This sheath fits closely to the contours of the body and elongates the body. The lace on the upper bodice and waist band feature ensures a flattering focus on the waist.

The ‘Barcli’ satin Pronovias bridal gown is a sophisticated take on the princess ball gown dress. Nothing is lost without the sparkle as a delicate lace bodice and bow belt create the perfect dress. The fuller skirt will give you the fairy tale style dress of your dreams.

Always striking, the ‘Madrid’ fishtail highlights every curve and accentuates the figure. The lace and gemstone applique detail on the front and back give just the right amount of sparkle and the plunging V back feature is a detail that makes all the difference.

Herera by Oscar Lili – wedding dress of the week

This week’s wedding dress is nothing short of a show stopper. Hundreds of beads adorn lace over a layer of silk satin. Influenced by the art deco movement of the 1920s, the intricate and skillful creation of this gown is outstanding. The gown features a strapless neckline and a small train. The simple structure of this gown works perfectly with the heavy beading.

Happy birthday La Novia!

As a bridal designer celebrating a milestone anniversary is always very special. 2016 marks our 20 year anniversary as a business based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Over the decades a lot has changed in the studio, I’ve enjoyed looking back and reflecting on what we have achieved over the years.

Working with brides is exciting and challenging. Designing bridal wear for unique personalities constantly drives innovation and new ideas. The past 20 years have been nothing short of amazing!

The bridal industry has changed dramatically from when I opened my first store based in Morningside. Brides are far more aware of fashion and trends, they’re not afraid to experiment with new concepts and that keeps us on our toes. Each season I introduce new fabrics and details to ensure we continue to inspire. It’s an absolute joy to meet and work so closely with our brides; it’s an incredible journey for both of us.

The elements which are essential in my designs and what I’ve strived to perfect over the years is the finish and quality of my gowns. Working with a close knit team ensures each bridal gown is made entirely by hand. Brides love this personal touch and can feel the difference, this is so important to me. Our design studio is located at our Queen Street boutique which means I can be involved in the entire process. I look forward to seeing where the next 20 years takes us…

The bridal fashion world has moved on and produced some stand out trends and updates to take not for in Spring Summer 16. Stylish brides need to look no further than the Stella York 2016 Wedding Dress Collection. The collection is inspired by an array of the hottest trends for 2016 including the illusion necklines, 3-D appliqués and plunging cuts.


Emerging all over the fashion week catwalks for S/S16, this standout design features a scene of 3D appliqués. Set on a bed of tulle with a satin underlay this creates a textured look of dreamy florals and romantic lace.


Plunging cuts have held their popularity over recent seasons. This season the plunging cut to talk about is the daring back. This style allows the bride to make a strong fashion statement with her daring gown.

Spaghetti straps are also making their comeback due to their elegant and barely there feel which works perfectly with this Stella York plunging back, perfectly complementing the femininity and simplicity of the dress.


The illusion neckline has been redesigned using sheer tulle with carefully placed appliqués to create a detailed tattooed lace effect. This design draws the eye to the neckline creating a delicate and feminine look.
