Award winning designer, Anne Bertossi has been designing stunning Bertossi Brides gowns now for over 25 years. Her studio, situated in the heart of trendy Paddington is magical world, full of silk and lace where brides’ dreams come true and special memories are made. Paddington Weddings is a family affair where Anne works alongside her mum Josie and sister Gill. Her dedicated team create each and every design giving individual time to their brides and are well known for their attention to detail.
Anne regularly travels to Paris and Milan in search of the best quality fabrics, This year she has fallen in love with crisp, clean crepes along with modern, geometric laces and silk jacquards. Inspired by these fabrics she has created a collection of more relaxed gowns for the modern bride of today that are easy to wear and flattering for all figures.
With her gowns now available in both ‘Couture’ and ‘Ready to Wear’ this means there is a ‘Bertossi Brides’ gown for all brides now. The ‘Ready to Wear’ option is great for the busy bride of today who is ‘time poor’ or ‘out of town’ and unable to attend fittings, it also makes the gowns more cost effective.
A Bertossi Brides gown really is affordable luxury at its best….
