StyleOnTheCouch Loves: Ritva Westenius & Aruna Seth Bridal

Hello again, Blog Reader – it’s back to StyleOnTheCouch after a trip home to London and a whirlwind tour of the beautiful south-west of Turkey. I really appreciate all of the tweets and continued comments whilst I was away – thank you.  I have several travel posts I can’t wait to share about my trip along with the fashion along the way but I’m starting with the reason I was in Turkey in the first place.  My beautiful Psychologist-friend married her fiance on the beach near the Blue Lagoon.

Although I had intended to wear a BCBG maxi for the wedding, in the end the early evening ceremony saw me do a quick last-minute switch and wear instead my black Von Vonni Transformer Dress.  You might have seen this dress on the blog before when I was trying out the different ways in which to style it – the somewhat Grecian style draping just lent itself perfectly to the wedding setting.

The beautiful bride wore a gorgeous gown from London label Ritva Westenius.  This mother and daughter team have a heavenly collection of classic bridal gowns and I adored my friend’s choice.

Her shoes were by Aruna Seth – the Colette Ivory Satin Wedges.  Perfect for dancing the night away….. (belly dancing and flame twirling also featured at the wedding – we Psychologist types are rarely boring*.)

After the wedding I had a little time to recover before meeting another friend and setting off to explore some of the coastline around the location of the wedding.  More posts to come, but this little piece of romance to start the journey.

Many thanks to my friends for letting me use their images here xo

    Congratulations to your friend! It looks like a truly breathtaking ceremony – how could you possibly top a location like that? – and the bride was just stunning. I love that she chose a truly glamourous dress, even though the wedding took place on a beach, and all of the cascading ruffles on her dress are just stunning. I can’t wait to see more snaps from your travels!

    Perfect setting: check. Perfect wedding gown: check. Perfect weather(it seems as per the images): check. Perfect shoes: check. Absolute perfection! Our designer here at BLANDÓN recently designed a wedding dress for his close friend who happens to live in Spain and married a Spaniard. The wedding took place in Managua, Nicaragua, birth place to both the bride and our designer. The bride wanted a ‘spanish-flare’ wedding gown, but still modern at the same time. We recently received the images from the wedding and the dress. Visit our blog and check them out.

    Stunning location, beautiful ladies, wonderful event to celebrate, looks like all in all a perfect trip! I can’t wait to see more photos and hear all about it. That dress truly is the most versatile I have ever seen- love it here, and every time you wear it.

    • It is definitely a dress that has seen multiple postings on the blog! I’m considering getting a shorter one sometime too, these dresses certainly get a lot of wear because they are so versatile. x
