Over the last couple of years I fallen in love with Wedding Dresses over and over again. As a Wedding Photographer I would be lying if I didn’t get excited at the prospect of Photographing a Bride wearing a Berta or Galia Lahav gown. In the Wedding Industry you are constantly being spoilt with amazing and breathtaking designs from these incredible artists who put forward a choice that is simply irresistible. I have put together a handful or some of the best!!
Berta Balilti the incredibly talented and sole designer founded in 2004.
Her worldwide designs are pure Sexy Elegance, pushing boundaries, and making her one of the most celebrated Fashion Designers in Bridal. Her use of vintage and retro styles gives a sense of couture quality and luxury. I absolutely adore her mesmerising style and grace.(images Berta)
Bruce had to be on my list, having worked with him at the latter part of last year. What an amazingly talented gentleman. I was so honoured to be a part of his couture showcase at the Lanesborough where I was priviledged to photograph several of his sensational dresses and listen to the history of the brand, a true inspiration.
We were very fortunate to get a glimpse of this incredible custom Wedding Dress designed by the fabulous Ralph Lauren at the spectacular Wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas (image by Jose Villa) this year. He has only ever designed Wedding Dresses for his daughter, daughter-in-law and niece. Thankyou Ralph Lauren for this gift, it blew us away.
Opulence at its finest. An Israeli fashion designer famous for lavish dresses, ornate details and personalisation, Galia Lahav has been crafting luxury apparel for over three decades. The detailing is a lavish of magnificence. (images Galia Lahav)
Vera Wang wedding dresses are known all over the world for their sophistication, drama and feminine detailing, perfect for any modern bride wanting that show stopper. Her dresses are truly what dreams are made of! In her very own words “When someone tries on a Vera Wang dress…they know that they have the very best part of me,” (images Vera Wang)
Uber Chic and renowed for being synonymous with the punk rock fashion revolution, Vivienne Westwood is one of the true legends in the industry (images Vivienne Westwood)
Creating pieces for many high profiled clients, this year designing a vintage-inspired satin dress, which featured a cold-shoulder silhouette and draped corset detailing, specially made for the one and only Miley Cyrus for her Wedding to Liam Hemsworth. She looked beautiful.
Inspiring doesn’t even come close to the exceptional designers within the current Wedding Industry. I feel extremely flattered to be one of the many Photographers invited to capture the unique and personal feeling these gowns create, J’adore x
