The exhibition showcases examples of exquisite contemporary gowns from well-known Australians at the vanguard of international wedding fashion.

We are very pleased to announce that two of our bridal outfits are included in the display - our bridal clients, Sonya Muller & Kevin had their wedding featured in the exhibition.  

This was such a fun wedding for us to be involved with - think medieval meets tudor meets victorian with a touch of burlesque thrown in, at the most beautiful venue in Melbourne - Monsalvat.  

Here is an image of Sonya and Kevin in front of their wedding outfits at the Love is: Australian Wedding Fashion Exhibition.
