Catwalks all over the world are awash with bridal fashion inspiration right now, and New York Bridal Fashion Week saw the debut of the fabulous new Anne Barge Fall 2019 wedding dresses.
The most distinctive characteristic of the new Anne Barge collection is structure. Structured wedding dresses are set to make waves next season, and this collection is full of form-sculpting corset bodices and architectural silhouettes.
“I’ve always had a love for interesting seams and how they enhance the female body. Past the clean, graphic lines of the collection lie layers of rich detail.” – Anne Barge Creative Designer
The designer studied architecture before turning to design, which explains dress names like Eiffel, Eames and Zaha, each referencing an innovator in that field.
When you look beyond what meets the eye, the Anne Barge Fall 2019 Bridal Collection is full of mystery and surprise. Key design features of the new collection include textured designs, the addition of a few sleeved wedding dresses, ethereal floating layers of embroidered illusion tulle, silk organza and beautiful abstract floral jacquard. Also, tulle ruffles, pearl accented beading and embroidery, and cascading bows give a soft touch of feminism to the structured, minimalist dresses.
The simple sophistication of the Anne Barge Fall 2019 designs paired with whimsical elements of surprise delivers a romantic collection with a modern-day twist. For me, the stand out wedding dresses in this collection are…
This beautiful pointed strapless ball gown with intricate pleating is one of my favourite dresses in this collection. It’s classical with a modern flair.
And the winner is… Memories and Milestones Photography!
Our congratulations go to Melanie of Memories and Milestones Photography, after you voted this superb picture our September 2018 Picture of the Month. Melanie told us that when Natasha and Rob booked their wedding they had no idea the Torbay Air Show was on the same day. This meant their guests were treated to an airborne display that included The Red Arrows…
“Natasha and Rob’s ceremony took place at Kingskerswell Church, with their reception back at The Imperial Hotel in Torquay. With a perfect view over the bay, guests mingled on the terrace over welcome drinks whilst aircraft of various sizes (and loudness) put on an amazing display.
“Natasha and Rob said that they would like a photo of them watching The Red Arrows, but at speeds of up to 645mph this was going to be quite a challenge! Firstly, it was tricky getting the jets in the same frame as the couple, as they fly past in a split second. Secondly, I had to shoot with a very narrow aperture in order for both the couple and the planes to be in focus. This is the opposite to how I would normally shoot couple portraits – with a soft, blurry background.
“I went with Natasha and Rob onto their private roof-top terrace off the bridal suite in order to get the best view, and shot away for about five minutes as they watched the start of The Red Arrows display. Once I was happy that I’d captured the ‘must-have shot’ I left them to enjoy those few precious moments alone as Mr and Mrs. Natasha and Rob were thrilled with the end result – a truly unique wedding photo!”
