We hope you had a wonderful weekend. Claire has been in Dublin celebrating the nuptials of a dear friend (and baking a Pina Colada wedding cake!) while I have been settling into my new apartment in Dubai. Yep, after almost a year and a half of travelling, Zee and I are finally settling down. (I can't tell you how nice it is to actually have a wardrobe again!)
Remember we shared Anna Campbell's latest wedding dress collection, Forever Entwined on Friday?
This might jog your memory…

Try as we might, sometimes we just can't squeeze all the wedding gorgeousness into one post.
So here is a little more Anna Campbell to swoon over and ease you into the week ahead.
Forever Entwined & Style By Anna Campbell Launch Event
To celebrate the launch of Forever Entwined and the Style by Anna Campbell wedding style/decor hire service (only available to Aussie brides at the moment) the Anna Campbell team threw a pretty party and invited some very lucky brides to preview the collections. Models floated down the stairs in designs from Forever Entwined to a series of ‘oohs' and ‘aahhhs' from the guests. I think you'll agree these dresses are showstoppers!
The talented photographers behind the stunning editorial images, 35mm Wedding Photography, were also on hand on the night to capture the dresses, details and behind the scenes action as it unfurled. I thought it would be fun to take a look behind the scenes because there is a whole host of fabulous florals and darling decor to admire and best of all, you can get a closer look at the dresses!
I was lucky enough to meet Anna Campbell last year at Bridal Market in New York and even had the opportunity to try on one of her exquisite gowns!
There's something very special about Anna Campbell's designs that you may not realise simply by looking at editorial images or photos of real brides wearing them. There's no zips, corsets or buttons! Each dress is tied up with a series of fancy flourishes and finished off with a pretty bow. And you know what that means, right? You get to celebrate your big day and dance the night away in effortlessly stylish, utterly gorgeous comfort!
Anna Campbell has created a series of ‘How To Tie' tutorials for each of her dresses so brides, their maids and mums know exactly what pretty piece goes wear.
I hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes peak. I think it's so helpful to see dresses in different lights and not carefully poised, posed, nipped, tucked, pinned and draped as they tend to be in editorials. Plus who could resist those cascading florals, vintage birdcages and crochet wrapped mason jars?!
Forever Entwined is available through Anna Campbell boutiques, worldwide stockists, and from their website with the availability to be shipped worldwide.
