Since landing on the scene, Naturae Design has been a Ritual Bride favorite when it comes to wedding day accessories. We're smitten with the celestial inspiration, precious gems, and modern take on adornment that designer, Daniella, brings to every collection. The 'Beneath The Stars' collection (and accompanying lookbooks... stay tuned for part II) is no exception. Filled with beautiful circlets, combs, and clips, there is something perfect for the dreamy, bewitching woman in all of us.
The Lane is always responsible for creating the most inspiring images and we're constantly in love their editorials (shot on location in the most gorgeous settings). Orphica is no exception. A hauntingly beautiful beach, the ever-inspiring muse Delilah Summer and a few of our favorite gowns? Yes please!

We first discovered Cortana's stunning bridal collection among the stalls at Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week last year. The artisinal pieces and feminine lines instantly capture your heart as the dance of silk crepe billowing with each swish of a gown takes hold.
Cortana, a Spanish designed label that has mastered attention to detail and manages to effortlessly flatter every body equally, boasts timeless styles and an ethos to rival your favorite designer. Relaxed Mediterranean silhouettes and a unique take on draping make these designs approachable and organic looking, perfect for the chill bride with visions of a casual day afloat in her mind.
Direct from their site: "Cortana’s commitment to effortlessly luxurious pieces, made in exceptional fabrics, draw inspiration from Rosa Esteva’s interest in art, architecture and contemporary dance, as well as her passion for nature, in particular that of her birthplace, the island of Majorca. The most important thing in a dress is the woman who wears it, because #WeLoveWomen.”
We are beyond excited to begin the journey of sharing unconventional bridal inspiration with like-minded beauty seekers! Gone are the days of identical, mass-produced ballgowns and overused wedding decor (goodbye mason jars, we aren't too sad to see you go). We hope to use this space to celebrate the wedding uncharted. A day filled with magic, passion and beauty for no other purpose than to please you and your partner. We encourage lovers of all kinds to find cause to celebrate, soak up some style and embark on a new chapter with grace and ease.
