Back to Black

From all over black looks to touches of ebony in ribbons, hairpieces, shoes, jewellery and gloves, ebony bridal accessories are fiercely in this season. Highly contrasted with classic white wedding dresses, accessories are stepping away from the usual suspects of pastel lilacs and corals, and confidently strutting towards unapologetically bold black.
