Radiate Confidence: Finding Your Perfect Wedding Dress with Martina Liana

Bridal wear is a huge and diverse field of fashion influenced by history, current style trends and culture. It’s no wonder that modern-day brides have a tough decision to make when it comes to saying ‘yes’ to one all-important wedding dress. The perfect dress needs to be truly special and meaningful, expressing who you are and making your day an unforgettable delight.

Cue Martina Liana – a major international bridal fashion label that we’re proud to offer at Georgina Scott Bridal. Conceptualised by Chief Creative Officer, Martine Harris, the Martina Liana collection combines romance, intrigue and elegance. With its couture detailing and stylish silhouettes, the bridal range inspires a radiant confidence and glamour for brides-to-be across the world.

What Martine Harris wants to offer Martina Liana brides is something far more than just a wedding dress – it is the idea of an enduring memory:

“A bridal gown is more than just something a bride will wear once. She will replay the memories of her day in her mind for years to come and pictures of her will be passed down for generations. A bride’s love story inspires us and this is why we love creating magical and unforgettable gowns”.

From the tailoring, to the fabrics and embellishments, every detail of each hand-crafted design is made with this idea in mind and to create a centrepiece that inspires awe for the bride. The collection focuses on creating a feminine appeal with beautiful and luxurious fabrics, soft lines and a touch of vintage glamour. Also for the more adventurous brides, Martina Liana also includes statement pieces with bold ruffles and sensual cuts.

A Martina Liana Dress that Counts

Whether you’re looking for a real style statement or a timeless piece which will be cherished forever, here are some tips to choosing a Martina Liana gown that will make you feel magnificent on your special day:


  • Research current style trends and see how they can exude your very unique attitude and elegance. Designers are now steering towards minimalist features, with clean tailoring over masses of frills and adornments. With a tendency towards sheer detailing and embroidery, dresses display a softer sensual appeal as opposed to an overt sexuality. Find what you love, and own it!
  • Find your favourite focal point. Even with the more minimal styles on offer what Martina Liana does really well is providing couture design elements. Intricate embroidered necklines and low scooping backs become focal points of the dresses and give you something extra special.
  • Choose a style which perfectly complements your figure and skin tone. There are many Martina Liana styles out there, from accentuating mermaid gowns to traditional sheaths, but the key is getting a flawless fit. A good fit will mean that you’ll also be comfortable sitting, standing and dancing in your chosen dress.
  • Most important of all is to follow your heart and choose the dress that best expresses who you are. You’ll feel more comfortable and special in this gown on the day and will be able to cherish it so much more!
