My enduring love affair with the iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, is behind our latest collection of wedding dresses. Our photoshoot is a tribute to one of the late and great bohemian beauties. We share a soul (her half is thinner).

You are not like the others, you are free. Your wedding day will be on your own terms. You wear a vintage turquoise ring on your finger, not a diamond. You wear flowers in your hair and your heart on your sleeve. Your heart guides you and it cannot be reasoned with.
