In My Dreams by Caroline Castigliano
Do you believe in love at first sight? To be honest, we were a little skeptical… until we clapped eyes on the sensational 2018 ‘Celebrating Romance’ collection by Caroline Castigliano. We are totally and utterly OBSESSED with these gowns!
True to the Castigliano signature style, the stunning new collection, all handcrafted in the UK, is the embodiment of understated effortless glamour. The clean, classic lines with contemporary touches are SO perfect for fashion-conscious-without-being-trend-obsessed STG brides. The word that comes to mind is ‘timeless’ – the type of gorgeous gowns you’ll look back on in 20 years and still be blown away by how incredible you looked.
The latest collection promises the aforementioned timeless designs with ultra-feminine twists, elevated textures and highly luxurious accents – and it certainly delivers. All of the gowns have a secret, hidden structure, which is a subtle, but crucial, ingredient when it comes to those astounding bridal silhouettes.
One of the elements we love most about Caroline’s designs is her absolute master of corsetry. Each panel is hand cut to mould and sculpt the figure, they are a true work of art.

A range of silhouettes from A-line, to circle skirts and fishtails
We talked to Caroline about her latest collection of designer wedding gowns. “The inspiration for ‘Celebrating Romance’ was ultra feminine gowns — very fluid, I just wanted to create gowns that feel light and airy but create shape and power — the collection needed to be sensual and playful yet only suggestive”
“There is a range of silhouettes from A-line, to circle skirts and fishtails, all creating beautiful movement and a powerful but understated vision.”
We couldn’t agree more — and we’re sure you will too when you meet the divine dresses from the new collection. Look out for more of our illuminating chat with Caroline below!
The Celebrating Romance collection is available through selected stockists worldwide.

Four Seasons by Caroline Castigliano
Truly exceptional gowns
We asked Caroline Castigliano what made her designs so unique, and she told us: “My gowns stand out because of how they are cut. The architecture of a gown is so important, the foundations have to be right. Then it is creating the movement. Nothing is more stunning than a gown that moves and dances. Finally, the luxurious fabrics that just bring the designs to life.”

Caroline’s Top Tips to find the perfect wedding dress
We asked Caroline Castigliano if she would share some of her top tips on finding the perfect wedding dress – here are here pearls of wisdom:
Before you even go out to try on wedding dresses search the internet and look at fabrics and silhouettes and make mood boards of everything you love. Then, after hours of searching and looking, start thinking about the venue you have chosen and the vision you want everyone to see when you arrive at your wedding — so when your fiancà© and guests turn to see you for the first time the vision they see will stay with them as a memory forever -what will that vision be?
Do you want to be have a traditional look or do you want to be modern and contemporary? Do you want a relaxed look or very romantic perhaps you want to have red carpet glamour? When you know the overall ‘look’ you want to create go back over the pictures you collected and you will start a new board with the real look you want for the big day”
