Inspired by Myth & Folklore: The Sidhe Collection

Written by , Posted in Styled Shoots



If you are looking for a wedding dress that looks as though it has stepped straight of the pages of a fairytale, or if you are looking for something with elegantly draped fabrics and soft feminine touches – then the Sidhe collection by Legend Bridal Designs was made especially for you!

The Sidhe Collection has been designed to capture the blithe and graceful nature of the Sidhe. For those of you not familiar with this Irish folklore let me tell you the story…

The Sidhe are the royalty of the Seelie Court. They are the ancestors that created all faery. They are serene, composed and grounded. They frequently travel the pathways between our worlds; the doorways between their glittering palaces and our lands lying among the ruins of our ancient buildings. They are also fabled to be muses, the poets, musicians and dancers, the artists connected to every creative talent. They cause an immense feeling of joy in humans and try to remain unseen.

Perfect inspiration for a bridal collection don’t you think?

The five Sidhe are made up of Alvarie, Aubrey, Donella, Brielle and Shaylee are feminine and delicate in design, with fabrics that flow like water, cuts that dance on the breeze and silhouettes that drape softly around the bride giving that ethereal enchantment like stepping out from a beautiful dream.

“We have been designing and creating bespoke bridal gowns for over 10 years. We LOVE taking our brides ideas and turning them into reality. We adore the varied inspirations and eclectic design ideas and have been very fortunate to make wedding dresses that we are both excited and inspired by.

There is nothing like working with a bride to make her ideas come to life. The reward in seeing her fall in love with her dress is amazing! However there is also an excitement (and certain indulgence) about the being able to design our own collection; to take some of our ideas and influences, create embellishments and choose fabrics, colours and textures and bring them to life.”
