We have always fallen in love with the exquisite and luxurious beauty of Galia Lahav's wedding gowns. His latest collection, Victorian Affinity, is no different as it is inspired, first and foremost, by the outstanding Victorian era in England and its parallel phase in france, “Le Belle Epoque”.
"These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution. The day to day atmosphere was recognized with optimism, and so we added our touch of romance and admiration to the feminine body. We dedicate this collection to Jeanne Margaine Lacroix, a designer that challenged the Victorian style, in its era and, made a change of how we perceive femininity. A bridal gown should be treated and fitted with love and care, as carried on a bride on her wedding day, and so we bring you our perception of it."
These wedding gowns are perfect for the most elaborate mountain wedding - we can imagine a beautiful bride fitted in one of these Galia Lahav gowns gliding across the luxurious ballroom of The Fairmont Banff Springs or The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The old-world beauty, exquisite chandeliers, and luxurious decor of these hotels are a perfect match for these wedding gowns.
In this Galia Lahav collection, you’ll find delicately textured laces, deep coloured backgrounds, careful attention to details and an atmosphere of ‘sheerness against substantial elements of lace’. Alongside varied Victorian motifs, such as high collars that draw the eyes to the collar bones, you’ll notice dramatic Victorian capes and sleeves (which are also detachable). The colour palette is of porcelain ivory, dusted silver, washed pinks, smoky blush and cream and we have fallen for every single one of these subtle colours.
Now that you've seen the incredible beauty of these wedding gowns, we know you want to know where you can go try these incredible gowns on for yourself.
