Allan Hannah Bridal Wear: The Alan Hannah brand has been a major player in the modern designer wedding dress market for more than 25 years. Stylist and designer Marguerite Hannah has taken wedding dress design to new heights, picking up many top designer awards on the way. Great attention to detail, extraordinary needlework and decorative beading are hallmarks of any Alan Hannah wedding dress.
Originally from Cyprus, Marguerite Hannah moved to the UK in 1985 to work for Bridal Design.
It was not long before she was creating her own collection of evening wear for private clients and in 1990, she launched her first bridal wear label with her future husband, Alan.
The label's prestige and influence grew as it gained a loyal following from private clients and high-end wedding dress retail outlets.
Now Alan Hannah designer wedding dresses are sold all over the word including the USA, Europe, Australia and Japan.
Marguerite starts the wedding dress design process by sourcing fabrics and beading. She sketches out her ideas on paper well before she starts to actually create her designer dresses.
The soft, flowing fabrics and translucent colours are typical of the Alan Hannah wedding dress style that has captured the attention of the bridal gown world.
She works in close collaboration with creative artists and highly skilled designers often using techniques that have been handed down through generations.
Alan Hannah dresses are also highly prized for the exquisite detailing, wonderful needlework and creative beading.
Marguerite says of her wedding dress designs: "I hope I have created a romantic collection of dresses that brides will love to wear on their wedding day."
