Team Paddington won the 'Australian Bridal Industry Award' for Anne's 'Designer Couture Gowns' for the whole of Australia! We have been very proud to win the Queensland award many times but this was our first national! We love this award as it is voted by our brides, they are ALL sent the details to vote and it is up to them what they say. It really is focusing not just on the beautiful gowns but the customer service, value for money and quality of product which are all very important to us.
We are missing Anne at Paddington HQ this week, she is over in Italy at the lace and silk mill in Como. Anne loves to personally visit the mill, meet with their very talented in house design team and hand pick stunning fabrics for her collection that they weave especially for us! But her favourite part of the trip is to meet with the owner 'Madame Elise' who is an amazing 91 years old and started her business over 60 years ago and still goes to work every day. What an inspiration to us all…
Team Paddington had an fabulous lunch Gambaro's Restaurant & Function Centre celebrating Melbourne cup. Such a wonderful afternoon of Champagne, fine food and laughter, an all round tough day at the office!!!

Some great photos from the 'Lights of Paddington' fashion show last Friday. Team Paddington had a wonderful time, our Bertossi Brides gowns looked sensational on the catwalk with all the other inspirational fashion from Paddington on the night. Models hair was by the fabulous Josh from Globe Creative and the stunning jewellery from JewelsNY We were even able to just wheel the gowns back down the road after the show!!!
Paddington weddings is a family business. Anne is the designer of every #bertossibrides gown and oversees the creation of each and every one of her beloved gowns. Anne's beautiful mum Josie does all the #couture hand finishes to each gown, painstakingly making individual silk buttons for the gowns and sewing on every crystal and trim! Her fabulous sister Gill manages the entire business, looking after all the brides, organising the workroom schedules and importing the fabrics from Europe.
Meet Danielle, the lucky winner of a Couture Bertossi Brides gown, she received her official prize on Sunday night at our collection launch and we can't wait to make a very special gown just for her... www.paddingtonweddings.com.au
