Editors’ Choice

WINNER

Britten

Michelle Royle, group Editor, You & Your Wedding and Perfect Wedding, says:

“I have chosen Britten as my Editors’ Choice because this gorgeous brand designs and crafts all its pieces so beautifully. Its incredible veils and accessories are all so intricately detailed, and from pretty earrings to stunning hair vines, the range is fantastic. The price points are fabulous, too – meaning that the pieces are accessible for any bride-to-be.”

WINNER

Cripps Barn

Caroline Bradley, editor, hitched, says:

“There are so many reasons this Gloucestershire wedding venue is my winner, but I’ll try to stick to just a few. The 18th-century Cotswold barn is just so beautiful – with its flagstone floors, rustic beams and spectacular open fireplace, I can’t imagine a more perfect place to start married life. The team at Cripps Barn are also second to none, and make every wedding at their venue special.”

WINNER

Stephanie Allin Couture

Peta Hunt, editor-at-large, You & Your Wedding, says:

“My choice is Stephanie Allin as she has been creating dresses for modern brides for more than 20 years. Being a hands-on retailer, she understands brides’ needs and challenges, has two shops and is stocked worldwide. Her fabric choice is spot-on, making her dresses and separates romantic, flattering and, from my point of view, very shoot-able.”
