One of the perks of this job is being invited to fab launch parties like this one! Earlier on this month, along with two hundred of the wedding industry’s movers and shakers, alternative, 1950’s inspired fashion designer, Louise O’Mahony unveiled her new ‘Oh My Honey’ Spring 2016 bridal collection at One Church in Brighton. Such a great buzz in this venue and just perfect for the event.
The evening was brilliantly planned to reflect the fun nature of Louise’s collection, from the welcome drinks on arrival from The Old Tree Brewery and the pink and gold ceiling drapes and industrial lighting courtesy of the House Of Hud, right through to Doris Loves light up letters, Candy Queens flashing candy floss and interactive photo booth supplied by the guys at Photobot 🙂
Louise herself has been a regular exhibitor with Belle’s Events for many years, booking a stand at Kelly Wickson’s first ever fair in 2011 and I couldn’t have put it better than Kelly herself when she says this talented lady has come on in ‘leaps and bounds’ ever since, with Oh My Honey dresses gaining national and international recognition for their creative take on a retro trend and for their superb craftmanship! (see more from Kelly about the launch in this post here!)
Her latest collection includes twelve glorious new dresses all made in her signature 1950’s style with a modern twist. Sequins, polka dots, feathers, glitter and even pink ombre tulle, inspire the looks that really do compliment every figure and make them a perfect choice for any bride wanting to stand out on her wedding day.
“I designed these dresses for the fun loving bride, those who want to wear something unique to represent their personality. They take a strong influence from the 1950’s classic styles, whilst also being exceptionally flattering on today’s figure. I wanted to create wedding dresses that make a bride feel beautiful, whilst allowing them to project their own unique character.”

And that is exactly what she has done as the catwalk show proved. Twelve sassy girls worked that runway seamlessly as they took their turns to the sounds of some ace retro tunes thanks to the talents of DJ Harry Burton and fun commentary from everyone’s favourite vintage entertainer, Dawn Gracie.
I can’t wait to see Louise’s creations on our 2016/17 brides and left a very happy bunny with a cute SunJellies bag full of fab goodies!
