It is with great excitement that we’re sharing world-renowned bridal designer Anna Campbell‘s wedding at Anderson’s Mill with you today! When a dress designer says “I do,” you expect nothing less than fabulous, and between Anna’s four unbelievable vintage-inspired gowns and the most incredible venue styling, we’d say the bride truly exceeded everyone’s expectations. Aside from the dazzling crystals, pretty petals, and delectable dessert spread (that cake!), what really stole our hearts are moments shared between Anna and her groom Murray, as the pair laughed, kissed, and couldn’t take their eyes off each other throughout the day.
Anna and Murray
Anderson’s Mill, Smeaton, Victoria
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.
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!
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!
The final dress was always designed to be my party dress! It was very simple, made of a soft Japanese lace, with an embellished belt detail. It was so much lighter than all of the other dresses, and so fun to dance in!
