The new collection which is called “Love Letter” was inspired by an old petticoat and a love letter found at an antique market, and adds more delicious and affordable wedding dresses in Minna’s ethereal style.  All of the dresses are handmade in Minna’s London studio and range from floor sweeping gowns to mid-length dresses from between £360 and £800.

Minna creates her wedding dresses from sumptuous silks, lace and hand embellished details, silk georgette, and antique lace.  With environmental issues important to Minna, she ensures that each piece is made from sustainable, organic, recycled and locally produced textiles.

This is an absolutely gorgeous veil – exactly what i imagined but haven’t found yet! It would fit my natural laid back wedding perfectly. The venue is a 16th century barn (Pimhill – a TNWC venue) and the theme is natural colours and flowing ribbons and fabrics with lots of flowers (from WildBunch – also TNWC) and home made decorations with lots of cross stitch and applique, so it would fit beautifully.
PS Love the Natural Wedding Company – so much inspiration and beautiful things – thank you!

Thanks for your lovely words about my website Jodi and best of luck in the competition – it’s so nice to hear you are having your wedding at Pimhill, I went for their launch party and its stunning :)

I have been searching everywhere for a beautiful veil to go with my boho style wedding dress, nothing has been quite right until I read this post. Ive spent the past hour dreamily looking at the Minna website as the images reflect exactly how I imagine our big day. Our wedding is being held in a woodland clearing beside a lake and will be a very natural, simple affair. The Zara veil is perfect for the flowing, romantic, antique style of my dress and my planned hair style….I would be overjoyed to win and wear this beautiful veil. I’m now going back to obsessing over the Minna website :)

Oh wow! The Zara veil is exactly what I have been dreaming of as my wedding day head candy. It would compliment my ethereal dress perfectly. I’ve got my heart set on a Minna halo veil but unfortunately the wedding budget does not stretch as far as designer accessories. I have been trying to make a DIY version…it’s not gone well!! 

My fiancé and I are getting married in July at a hippie commune in Oxfordshire. We are planning a laid back bohiemian affair to compliment the venue. Humanist ceremony, great music, local organic food and dancing by fairy light in the evening. 

I absolutely love TNWC and I’ve found it to be a great source of inspiration throughout my planning. The beautiful pictures find their way onto my Pinterest regularly. 

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed. :-) xxx

This is simply perfect and would be the icing on the cake. We are getting married April 5th 2013 and have done every details ourselves. From the venue decor, table decor to the cake itself. I’d like to thank TNWC for all the inspiration for my wedding, and have solely used TNWC to inspire every detail.

This is a stunning veil that matches perfectly the stunning dresses Minna creates and the pixie fairy forest wonderland festival we’re trying to create for our love ceremony next summer. I would love to be wearing something similar and it would be amazing if I could win this and have something truly special in my hair on the day :)

I would love to win something so perfect and so suited to my wedding. I am having a woodland wedding in Scotland on September 3rd and this Zara Veil would just be so so so perfect!! I’m having flowers everywhere and natural themes (many picked up from TNWC!). The veil would even match my wedding cake that has similar flowers on it!
So perfect. I’m in love! Would really love to win this :)

This is such a beautiful veil, it is exactly what I imagined wearing. My mummy and I are making my dress and the bridesmaids dresses out of clothes and material we have purchased from charity shops and this would be lovely to have as my something new!
We are having our reception in a barn and having a pork pie wedding cake which I am making to go with our plougmans lunch! This veil would be the icing on the cake!
