We thought, this week, there was no better way to say farewell to the week, than with a collection of beautiful wedding gowns from Australian designers Bertossi Brides. There is the reason these guys have been creating gowns, not just designing them, in Australia for over 28 years.

While trends come and go, the Bertossi design team, understand that elegance never goes out of style; “Willow” paying homage to beautifully classic wedding style, with plenty of romance.

Gill of Bertossi Brides explains “Less is more is more important than ever these days and for the next few years, we see couples organising more simple, intimate weddings that will cope if covid regulations come back into force without having to postpone entire events. What is lovely is so many of the brides we have met over the last year who are pushing through with their weddings are so in love they simply want to get married. Covid has made us reassess so much about our lives and weddings are no exception.”
There’s “Cassie”, simple and sweet, a sheer illusion bodice that makes way for a traditional a-line silhouette, there’s “Jessica”, a french lace beauty with a v neckline and dramatic tulle detail. One of my personal favourites, an utterly classic beauty is “Frances” a strapless silk ballgown made of Milan sourced Italian silk – complete with everyone’s favourite feature – pockets!

And as we can all understand, after being through 2020, that supporting and shopping local is more important than ever. You can sleep well at night with the knowledge that the Bertossi team don’t just design, but hand make each and every gown in Australia – and your gown is made just for you. How’s that for sustainable, ethical and personal gown shopping?

The new Bertossi Brides collection is available instore at Paddington Weddings.
