Situated at One Marylebone in London, The Wedding Gallery is a one-stop shop with over 200 bridal brands for everything your (fantasy) wedding (to Channing Tatum) needs; from curated fine and costume jewellery, to expert cake-makers and a carefully selected edit of 16 bridal brands, they've got you covered.

Creator, entrepreneur and owner of One Events, George Hammer (who brought Aveda, L'Occitane and The Sanctuary Spa to the UK) explains: 'It will be a shopping centre for brides - a one-stop venue for everything to do with weddings, from pre-planning all the way through to the honeymoon.' Or in other words, the best wedding planner money can buy in a 22,000 square foot space complete with a champagne bar.

Naturally appointments are necessary to ensure you get the full tailored-to-you works.

What to expect:

The aforementioned expertly edited selection of 16 bridal brands including Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, Halfpenny London and Hermione de Paula.

The latter even gives brides the option to stitch words and dates into the fabric of their dress, as seen on our Associate Fashion Editor Harriet Stewart.

Bridesmaid's dresses and separates that your chosen few will actually want to wear (and wear again), including To Have & To Hold and Jenny Yoo.

The most incredible creations from florists Rob Van Helden and Nikki Tibbles' Wild at Heart (if you've eyed up the floral arrangements outside Liberty London, you'll know her work well).

The girls getting together for a good time 👏

A lingerie selection with everything from Spanx (crucial) to luxe La Perla and silky PJ brand Olivia von Halle (yes you need bridal PJs).

The fanciest wedding cakes you've ever seen, with works from Rosalind Miller and Laduree. Instagram gold.

15 jewellery brands that cover all bases from fine diamonds to costume pieces, including a bespoke marriage band service with engraving.

SHOES! Lots of shoes. Lots of great shoes.

Did we mention the champagne bar? What about the inspiration library and tasting room? Yes really.

A dedicated beauty area by Urban Retreat covering everything from hair and make-up tests to the incredible wedding scenting service by Jo Malone London (candles galore).

Aside from the shoppable, you can also book in with an in-house expert to talk everything from venues to caterers, honeymoons to photographers, music to speech writing. Basically they've thought of everything plus all of the things that hadn't even crossed your mind.

Yesterday was pure magic 💕 @dhaskellthomas
