What happens when you cross two breath-taking Italian cities, one gifted Australian designer, and a pair of very talented destination wedding photographers.

Well, you get a whole lot of gorgeous.

Bridal Fashion Week kicked off this week, with all the biggest names in bridal showcasing their collections in New York.

But before we share those on the blog over the coming days, we thought we’d swoop in with a cool collection from a super stylish wedding dress designer you NEED to know about!

Trevi Fountain

Silvana Tedesco is an innovative couture designer based in Melbourne, who creates beautiful, romantic and ultra modern wedding dresses and bridal separates.

Breezy fabrics, delicate embellishments, daring cut outs, contemporary shapes, dramatic pants, and playful two-pieces make this collection one of the most unique and varied we’ve featured in a while.

Collaborating with Lyndel & Daniel of Lost In Love Photography (Aussie photographers who are basing themselves in Europe for 2017 weddings!), Silvana Tedesco brought his designs to Italy, to capture them against some of the most romantic backdrops on the planet.

The result is Ultimo Amore (Last Love), a pretty exquisite shoot that takes in Rome’s Trevi Fountain, Venice’s Bridge of Sighs, and a whole lot of breathtaking style and beautiful photography.

We think you’re going to swoon. Hard.

I love how they’re both really cool and current, and then soft and romantic – I told you you’d swoon!

Thanks so much to Lost in Love Photography and Silvana Tedesco for sharing their inspired shoot with us.
