Synopsis: This lush full-colour volume showcases more than 150 spectacular contemporary bride dolls created by 60 artists and manufacturers. Here Come the Bride Dolls exhibits the best-known and most popular wedding dolls, including examples inspired by famous brides such as Princess Diana, Princess Grace and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, as well as the trend-setting Barbie and Gene as brides. Special highlights include brand-new exclusives made especially for this book by a select group of international doll artists such as Robert Tonner, Helen Kish, Wendy Lawton, Edna Dali and Heloise and the Alexander Doll Company. Researched extensively by recognised doll author Louise Fecher, Here Come the Bride Dolls includes interviews with celebrated doll makers and famous designers such as Bob Mackie. The book is enhanced by wedding photographs of real-life brides and bridesmaids, whose ensembles are mirrored by the dolls pictured. From medieval maidens and Victorian belles to literary ladies and ethnic beauties, these stunning dolls reflect the beloved traditions of the marriage ceremony and the timeless appeal of the bride.
