A LOVE Affair with Sassi Holford

Our LOVE affair with Sassi Holford began in 2016 when the rare opportunity came up to stock this label in our area. Since then, her stunning, modern, chic and elegant gowns have been making our brides’ dreams come true, and we just can’t get enough! Let me tell you all the ways we LOVE Sassi…

Sassi has been designing her beautiful gowns for over 30 years. Her classic styles and stunning silhouettes with sexy, high fashion twists have caused many a LOVE bride to ‘say yes to the dress’.

All her stunning dresses are handmade in England by a super talented team of cutters, seamstresses and hand beaders. With a Sassi Holford dress, it is all about the female form, creating designs that enhance a bride’s unique shape and individual personality.

Sassi is a big fan of soft silks, voluminous organza and delicate lace, some of which is sourced from the only lace producer left in the UK. Contrasted with high-fashion notes such as statement sleeves and layering with jackets, belts and capes to ensure her brides are fit for the 21st Century.

And Sassi’s latest bridal collection is no exception. Her 2019 Enchanted Collection takes its inspiration from nature and romance, with breath-taking results.

The looks are traditional with a modern twist, such as a classic silhouette paired with unconventional fabric and textures to create something striking and new.

And it is this aesthetic that makes Sassi so popular with the celeb crowd. I have LOVE-d seeing just how much positive press she has been getting recently, with celebs queuing up to wear her sleek and chic gowns.

Celebs in Sassi

Rochelle Humes wore a bespoke, asymmetric Sassi gown to the National Television Awards and ended up on every ‘Best Dressed’ list published; the beautiful Mollie King looked uber stylish in a green version of our ‘Sasha’ gown for the NTA’s; former Prima Ballerina and Strictly Come Dancing judge, Darcy Bussell, also chose Sassi Holford for the NTA’s looking gorgeous in plunging purple satin; and last but not least our total style crush Holly Willoughby looked utterly sensational in another bespoke, show-stopping red Sassi gown while presenting ITV’s Dancing on Ice!

And it’s not just Sassi’s evening dresses that celebrities LOVE. Her bridal gowns have proved equally as popular, with Alex Jones from The One Show choosing a fairy-tale custom made Sassi creation, complete with off-the-shoulder sequinned top and full, tulle skirt.

Celeb Weddings

While Autumn Phillips, who married the Queen’s grandson, Peter Phillips, back in 2008 wore a Sassi gown with a fitted bodice made of hand-beaded lace, a silk duchesse skirt and beaded French lace shrug. A dress fit for royalty! It is such a huge accolade for a member of the British Royal family to have chosen Sassi, and her dress will have been seen by millions across the world.

Other celebs who have chosen Sassi for their big day include Peter Andre’s wife Emily Andre and TV presenter Helen Skelton.
