Sleek, elegant, and above all, effortless in style – the true essence of a Wendy Makin bride, as captured in the Fleur Sauvage Collection...

Inspiration for the Collection was drawn from the untamed beauty and resilience of wildflowers - with the wildflower representing the modern woman; confident and fierce in spirit, yet beautiful and free.

This Collection, from French by Wendy Makin plays on these contrasts – the delicate and bold, the daring and dainty – using delicate lace, ornate beading, whimsical soft tulles and luxurious crepe.

'Fleur Sauvage' // Wildflower: (n.) A flower that grows freely, resiliently and beautifully. Wildflowers grow in the most unlikely of places.
