During the global pandemic, when travel was banned, she wanted to reconnect with the pristine beauty of nature.

Bridal designer Carmen Llaguno reveals how to host a sustainable and low-waste wedding

Luxury womenswear and bridal designer Carmen Llaguno, who recently got married herself wearing a gown that she designed and made by hand, offers her top tips on creating a sustainable and low-waste wedding. She tells us, "Sustainability is a way of life, it means you're not thinking only about the present moment but looking out for the wellbeing of the planet. Sustainable fashion goes beyond choosing natural or recycled fabrics, for me, it relies on ethics. People need to ask themselves 'who makes my clothes and under what conditions?' When you live and shop sustainably, you think carefully about every purchase, researching each brand that you're buying from. The result is having a meticulously curated selection of clothes that you can wear over and over."

Little Mistress reveal the must-have bridesmaid dress colours for weddings this year

Fashion retailer Little Mistress has conducted new research looking at which colours and styles of bridesmaids' dresses will be most popular for bridal parties this year. The trending shades were neutrals and creams, which saw a 120% and 60% increase in recent Google searches. Copper was the second most popular colour, followed by the classic red, dark green, and yellow. Catherine Chambers, head of e-Commerce and digital at Little Mistress, commented on the trends: "As typical wedding season is about to hit, we're relieved to see that restrictions have been lifted and weddings are steadily going back to normal. It's interesting to see which hues will be most popular and neutrals are an interesting choice given that white has long been considered a fashion faux pas at weddings. However, this will give a timeless and minimalistic feel to weddings. It also helps bring bridal parties closer together as one unit."

Sarah Barrett, creative director at Lyn Ashworth is passionate about British bridal design making a big comeback this year and throughout 2021 that will herald a shift towards craftsmanship and sustainable bridal fashion. She tells us, "I believe there will be some good that will come out of the pandemic. Here at the Lyn Ashworth HQ, we're already working towards a trans-seasonal approach to bridal rather than the fast timelines, focussing on slow bridal fashion that's made-to-order.
