Benjamin Roberts is a name synonymous with expertly crafted, exceptionally fitted wedding dresses that embody everything a wedding dress should be. Once known to play it safe with traditional ball gowns using undeniably exquisite corsetry, the designer has added to his repertoire of couture-feel gowns with some slinkier silhouettes this year – and with breathtaking results! There’s something for every bridal personality here, from classic and romantic A-line gowns to sumptuous sheath dresses and back to Robert’s signature full skirted princess styles. The collection consists of the finest silks, the softest chiffons and the most fabulous French taffetas delicately draped, pleated and pouffed all the while keeping the feminine form in mind.
Carefully crafted corsets are built in to each dress, to flatter the figure and enhance curves in all the right places. There’s no doubt that no matter what your shape, you’re going to feel secure and supported in any one of these gowns. Ruched bodices, sweetheart necklines and beautifully embellished straps are perfect for brides with a bigger bust, while on-trend sheer necklines and delicately beaded waists keep things contemporary. Added glamour comes from floral appliqués, pretty lace overlays and diamante beading which gives that touch of sparkle every bride needs on her big day.
Stockists include The Bridal Rooms at McElhinneys, Donegal, The Bridal Corner, Dublin, and Tracy Bridal, Galway. Please contact bridal stores in advance to enquire about this collection.
