Anna wore an epic 4 wedding dresses and today’s post features wedding dress number 2 – a seriously sparkly and embellished fitted dress with exquisite detailing and stunning train… it also features number 3 wedding dress and that of course is another stunner with exquisite intricate beading and a mermaid shaped design…
Founder and Creative Director, Anna Campbell, has married her long-term partner and best friend, Murray Thompson, in a romantic and rustic ceremony at historic Andersons Mill in Smeaton, Victoria.
The pair ensured the day was a true celebration of their love and style, incorporating as many personalised touches as possible, from the DIY cocktail menu and floral styling, to the design and creation of Ms Campbell’s four custom Anna Campbell gowns.
“While four dresses might seem like a lot, for me one was just not enough! The day is made up of so many different moments, I wanted to ensure I had the perfect dress, with just the right amount of lace or sparkle, for each part of the day”, said Ms Campbell.
“My first dress was worn to our first look at Lavandula, a beautiful Swiss Lavender farm, with sweeping lavender fields. I wanted a free-moving dress that flowed beautifully, but that was still sparkly and special enough to be the first dress Murray saw me in.
“Walking down the aisle was the moment I had always dreamt of, and I wanted to be wearing something truly incredible and sparkly, so I created my ceremony dress with thousands of shimmering beads. Knowing how the dress would sparkle under the vintage lights of the barn, I couldn’t resist being embellished head to toe!
Each of Ms Campbell’s gowns were created using luxury silks and lace fabrics, finished with the exquisite hand beading Anna Campbell is renowned for.
“My third dress, worn upon arrival at the reception and for our sunset photos, was very fitted and intricately beaded, with gorgeous off the shoulder tulle sleeves. Although I was nervous to wear the fitted, mermaid shape, it created the most incredible silhouette, and it ended up being my and Murray’s favourite!
And we are still not done with this epic wedding! There will be a part 3 too! Mainly featuring Anna and Murray’s couple photo shoot and the after party. Whoop whoop.
Sheesh – never send a wedding blogger 600 + images from a wedding as she might just end up using them alllll!
