    Lucy looked stunning in her ‘Venetian’ gown created in lace found in ‘Burano’ in Italy on one of Anne’s trips to Europe. This is where lace was first invented and it is still made by hand, stitch by stitch. x

    Hi Anne and Gill,

    A little sneak peak of our wedding on Saturday. Thank you both for all your hard work in creating such a beautiful dress for me to wear on my wedding day. I truly couldn’t have asked for a more amazing dress.

    Thanks again,

    Lucy Wiles

    Hannah looked like a princess on her special day in her ‘Rose’ gown, created in delicate Italian Vintage tulle from Italy. It was the perfect gown for her and we loved being part of her special day. xx

    Dear Anne, Gill and the whole team at Paddington Weddings,

    I just wanted to say a big thank you for making me the perfect wedding dress! I felt like an absolute princess and I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work. Right from the start it was a pleasure to work with your team and I looked forward to every fitting. Here are some photos from the day taken by the lovely Naomi V Photography.

    Thank you again,

    Hannah Palmer (nee Slattery)

  3. Georgia in our ‘Chloe’ gown

    Wow, we always receive stunning photos of our brides but I think the simplicity of the Chloe gown on Georgia just looks breath taking in these amazing wedding photos by Bridget Wood Photographer. The cut and fit of that bodice is just a work of art, even running through the sand dunes! x

  4. Jessica in our ‘Jessica’ gown

    People often wonder how we name our gowns, they are named after the first bride that books the gown after it is created. This is a perfect example of how well that system works, ‘Jessica’ was the perfect name for this stunning gown and Jessica herself looked so beautiful on her special day. x

    Dear Anne, Gill & the Paddington Wedding Team,

    Thank you again for my beautiful gown. I absolutely love it and am so sad I will only get to wear it once! It fit perfectly and felt so comfortable on the day. Words cannot express how much I appreciate your hard work and professionalism from my very first meeting with Gill to my final fitting. I looked forward to every fitting knowing that not only would I get to try on my gown at each exciting stage but more importantly I would be greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome.


  5. Penny in a V neck ‘Kate’ gown

    Penny picked the perfect wedding dress for her and she looked amazing in our ‘Kate’ gown. We love the sophisticated country wedding of today, such understated elegance, just like Anne’s gowns really . x

    Dear Anne And Gill,
    Thank you so much for making me the most beautiful wedding gown. We had a wonderful wedding day and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dress. You were both so lovely to work with. Here are a couple of photos from our wedding day.
    Thanks again


  6. Bec in our ‘Gabriella’ gown

    Bec was a vision in our ‘Gabriella’ gown created with 3/4 sleeve and french cuff detail. It was the perfect gown for her, so timeless and elegant. x

    Hi Gill & team

    Apologies in the delay in sending my thank you notes to you all!
    I hope you received some hard copies in the mail of some photos too.

    Thank you to the whole team for helping to make such a beautiful dress for our special day.
    I felt amazing in it, and had many friends and family comment!
    The whole process with your team was a dream – from first try-on appointment through to final fittings (including some last minute alterations in the final week – sorry!)
    I loved my dress!

    thanks so much


  7. Anna in our ‘Samantha’ gown

    Anna looked stunning in her V neck version of our ‘Samantha’ gown, so simple and elegant and perfect for her sophisticated wedding. x

    Hi Anne and Gill,
    Sorry it has taken me so long but I wanted to thank you for my amazing wedding dress.
    I absolutely love it and did not want to take it off! Your design is exquisite, and I felt so beautiful and comfortable in it. I loved the movement of the lace and could not help but twirl at every opportunity.
    We have just received the digitals from the photographer and I have included a few highlights from the day.
    Many thanks for helping make it such a special day!
    Best regards,

    Anna Rowe (nee Nelson)

  8. Sheradyn in our Paola gown


    Sheradyn looked amazing in our Paola gown, created in delicate embroidered silk organza. We just loved the pop of red in her flowers and in the shoes! Great photos. x

    Hi Anne, Gill, Suzanne and the team!

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you for creating the beautiful dress that I wore on my wedding day. I loved driving down every couple of weeks for my appointments and I felt very special trying on the dress as each stage was complete. The dress fit like a dream and I received so many compliments on the day. I loved it so much that I wish I could have the day a million times over just to keep wearing it! I have attached some pictures and I must say that the dress looks stunning in all of the pictures, so it was hard to pic just a few! Our awesome photographer was Stewart from Playback Studios.

    Thanks again so much!


  9. Carmen in our ‘Sienna’ gown

    The delicate lace of the ‘Sienna’ gown was just perfect for Carmen for her riverside setting. It is so important to wear lace well and not overwhelm a bride. There are so many lace options here at Paddington Weddings, it is important that you pick one that suits your personality, they don’t all have to be so bold… x

    To dear Anne, Jill and team,
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating my perfect wedding dress. The entire experience from start to finish was not only enjoyable but very humbling. My dress was absolutely stunning and the headwear you made Jill was spectacular! Proud to officially be apart of the Bertossi family.
    Lots of love,
    Carmen xx

  10. Kylie in our Estelle gown

    Kylie looked breathtaking in her ‘Estelle’ gown, we created it in an Italian Chantilly lace and teamed with a beautiful crystal belt and hair detail, it was just perfect for her. x

    I may be 7 months late with this, but thank you both for creating the most perfect dress! It was everything I wanted and more
