Thursday January 5 2012.


A New Year and lots of wonderful new talent to introduce you Bijou brides to.  First for 2012 is new bridal fashion house Sabina Motasem.  

Chief designer Sabina Ali carved her niche in the wedding market with dresses of understated elegance.  For the latest collection Sabina submerged herself in early 20th Century Paris and the glamourous ladies of the Folies Bergeres for inspiration.  There was only one destination for shooting the collection, the iconic Eltham Palace.  This Art Deco building set in 19 acres of moated gardens in London is truly exceptional and an opulent backdrop for any Sabina Motasem vintage inspired, luxurious gown.  Enough talking, let’s get to the eye candy…

This ‘Cabaret’ wedding dress is a real winner, demure yet fashion   forward with a hem and train of layered box pleats, swoon.

‘Josephine’ is a real head-turner with cowl draped back and crepe silk puddle train for bride’s looking for an injection of old Hollywood glamour.

The ‘Alaya’ dress epitomises the Sabina Motasem design ethos of simple elegance, the bias cut crepe silk provides the luxury and the cowl neck the timeless elegance.
