Bridesmaid dresses by twobirds

This summer, celebrity brides and bridesmaids have favoured twobirds designs for their big day.

When Victoria Pendleton tied the knot last month, her bridesmaids were spotted in amazing pink and purple twobirds dresses. But before them, other celebrity bridesmaids such as The Saturdays’s Mollie King and Lady Gaga had been pictured wearing them.



The adaptable, and very popular, dresses are designed so they can be worn in 15 different ways and it is made to flatter all body shapes, making them a hit!

twobirds dresses are available in three different collections, the Classic, Rosette and Hi-Low. The Classic is available in three lengths and 20 catwalk-inspired colours, perfect for any occasion, while the Rosette adds a little sparkle to the dresses with chiffon rosettes hand-sewn on to the gowns.

The Hi-Low is new to the range this year, and features a stylish, strapless dress available in 20 colours with the possibility of wearing a sash.

All dresses are made and stocked in the UK.

Earlier in the summer, Lady Gaga dressed in a twobirds £250 blush pink dress. She chose to wear hers as a halter and revealed a hint of cleavage, while the other bridesmaids looked more demure covering their chests.

Two of the bridesmaids, including Lady Gaga, accessorised their hair with a big, pink flower to match the rosewater shade of the gowns.

At the end of July, Mollie King wore hers as a one-knot gown tied across the shoulder while her sister opted for the classic halter neck style.

Millie Mackintosh’s bridal make-up

Many brides are still eager to know how Millie Mackintosh, who tied the knot last week, achieved such a flawless and polished look for her wedding day.

The Made In Chelsea star is known for having  incredible skin but she has confessed that she took extra care in the months leading up to her big day. Here we show you exactly how she achieved her gorgeous glow.



Skin preparation

Skin care expert and celebrity facialist Elizabeth Caroline was the bride’s official wedding facialist. The skin expert prepped Millie’s skin for months before the big day using a combination of her bespoke, handmade products and unique beauty treatments.

Speaking to Grazia, Elizabeth revealed that the night before the wedding, she set up Millie’s hotel room with scented candles, scattered petals and had classical music piped through the ceiling, and then treated her to an Elementals Massage and A-Lift Elementals Facial “to make sure she had a restful night and was glowing from the inside out”.



The base

To achieve Millie’s natural look I recommend the new Dr. LeWinn’s Skin Perfect foundation, which creates the most gorgeous, glowing skin. Millie is a big fan of the anti-ageing foundation because it boosts radiance, deeply hydrates, smooths fine lines and leaves skin soft and velvety. It is available in six different shades and with SPF 15.


The eyes

Bobbi Brown’s limited edition Rich Chocolate Eye Palette, £39.50, has a beautiful array of coffee tones and is perfect to achieve the star’s earthy eye make-up. Then, add drama to the upper lash line by applying liquid eyeliner and Millie’s favourite Portobello Belgravia false lashes, £8.99.

The nails

On her wedding day, the 23-year-old chose a baby pink French manicure to complement her lace Temperley dress and pastel bouquet. Go for OPI’s ‘don’t burst my bubble’ shade, which is perfect to achieve this look!

Millie Mackintosh’s bridal look

Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh and Professor Green have finally tied the knot! The couple married in a countryside wedding at Babington House after more than three years together, and here we examine the bride’s stunning vintage wedding look!



The dress and shoes

The Quality Street heir chose a stunning Alice Temperley ‘Bluebell’ vintage white gown with a waterfall hemline, a train and lace detailing around the shoulders. The dress had cap sleeves and perfectly showed off her stunning slim figure.

The dress is still available to purchase from the designer’s website. It belongs to the Florence bridal collection.


The Temperley Bridal Florence 2013 Collection contains a wide variety of fantasy dresses in silhouettes that celebrate the female form, resulting in a collection of dresses memories are made in. Each piece conveys an elegance and sophistication, all with the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Temperley handwriting. Ranging from classic Grace Kelly inspired styles to more decadent 50’s Hollywood shapes; the collection is largely inspired by film noir screen sirens. The prices range from £2,950 to £4,200.

The star completed the look with sky-high Christian Louboutin peep-toe shoes in White, which retail at £625.


Hair and make-up

The bride styled her hair into a pretty pleated floral updo and topped off her look with an elegant silver watch, pearl earings and  a shoulder-length veil, which she later took off for her reception (as seen above).


Millie kept her make-up natural. She didn’t go for heavy eyeliner, and kept her look “fresh and young”, like she had previously revealed.


White, cream and pink flowers made up the bride’s bouquet, which perfectly matched her floral headpiece.
