We’re still taking bookings for summer.

So many of the brides who are coming to see me now have their wedding planned for this summer. Usually the first question is: “Have I left it too late”?

At this stage we are still taking bookings for summer weddings. Timelines differ a bit, depending on the wedding dress you’re choosing.

Boho lace wedding dress.

The stunning Boho lace wedding dress.

Lace may need to be ordered – in some cases fabrics even have to be woven to order. Patterns may need to be graded or the style is still being fine tuned. Beading will have to be painstakingly hand-made.

However, we can usually make it work. Just last week a bride who’s flown in from Germany has booked her dream gown with us, and will be picking it up early December on the way to the airport.

Stunning classic wedding dress.

This classic wedding dress features a striking silhouette and beaded cap sleeves.

Our new bridal collection is being very well received, brides just love the flowing, flattering cuts, gorgeous materials and new, fresh styling.

We are still building stock for a variety of sizes, with more beautiful gowns are being finished all the time.

Fitted lace wedding dress.

At the same time I am working on more styles, lace dresses as well as contemporary simple or beaded gowns. All are in the design and pattern stages to be in the studio by January.

I consider myself very lucky to be able to meet so many wonderful women and help them feel their most beautiful on the big day.

Back from New York!

What a month it has been!

Taking our ready-to-wear bridal collection to show at the New York International Bridal Week it’s been a busy few months. We needed to show a minimum of 20 styles, and of course all supporting material had to be up to scratch.

The favorite styles at the show were our fitted diamante detailed gowns, with the classic Diamante Back Wedding Dress particularly popular.

Chuffed that Alexia has included such a kind comment about us:) Thanks Alexia!

Beautiful Bride – Amanda

We love it when a bride-to-be discovers Anna Schimmel through word of mouth. That’s exactly what happened when our beautiful bride Amanda saw her friend’s couture wedding dress. Amanda was inspired and instantly knew she had found her wedding dress designer.

AW13

Amanda brought in pictures of her ideal look to her consultation. She loved the on trend look of lace over nude with a mermaid shape and lots of layering. We decided to personalize the design but stay on look.
