Sydney BRIDE Magazine - featuring our gowns!
The latest issue of Sydney BRIDE magazine has just come out, Issue #64, and i am thrilled to see so many "Culture Bridal Couture" gowns amongst the fashion pages- VERY exciting indeed!! In fact, 2 of our BRAND NEW wedding gown styles can be seen in the "Style With Attitude" fashion shoot, which has a distinctive vintage feel, and a fresh Spring colour palette!
Our brand new mermaid-shaped "Estella" bridal design (AS PHOTOS ABOVE), with draped French lace over one shoulder, French Lace overlay & layers of silk georgette ruffles cascading down into the skirt train, (seen on pages 51 & 54), is accessorised with a fabulous oversized silk flower headpiece. Our other newbie is the beautiful Champagne-coloured "Cassandra" bridal gown, (AS PHOTOS TOP OF PAGE) featuring a long-line fitted corset-style bodice embellished with tiny tulle ruffles and silver beaded lace, with a softly flowing tulle skirt and a cute beaded cap sleeve on one shoulder (pages 47 and 57). Both these samples reflect the current trends in Couture bridal design for soft feminine silhouettes and floaty fabrics, moving away from the stiff heavy fabrics altogether, & giving a modern edge with a one-shouldered feature for some unexpected fun!
In the "Natural Elegance" fashion shoot, our recent "Belle Silk & Lace" white & silver bridal design (AS PHOTOS ABOVE) looks amazing on their model (pages 32 and 37), really focussing on the gorgeous fit and the back bustle detailing - LOVELY! Whilst the Latte & Silver "Catherine Lace Halter" style (AS PHOTOS BELOW) shows off this slimline wedding gown and matching pearl & crystal headpiece (pages 35 and 41). All these beautiful fashion images are photographed by Peter Collie, with hair & make-up by the talented Paul Bedggood, and appearing in Issue #64 of Sydney BRIDE magazine, out now throughout NSW.
The magazine has a fab new look, and features lots of great "Real-Life" weddings, including our very own "Culture Bridal Couture" couples, Kate & Michael (pages 155 - 157), and also the lovely Vicki & Steve (pages 144-147), whose stories and photos show just how unique and fun outdoor weddings can be, whether by the beach or overlooking Sydney Harbour, no matter what the weather does!
BRIDE magazine has also re-launched their website, which now has lots of handy new features, such as the FASHION section where weddding dresses can be browsed by gown STYLE, as well as by gown DESIGNER. Lots of helpful articles, planning tips, great directory, beautiful ideas for styling and accessories, and i just adore their bridal SHOE photo gallery, too - the new BRIDE site is perfect for brides & grooms alike, covering many aspects of the big event! Just imagine how we ever survived without the internet to help plan a wedding!
Til next time,
