They took the words right out of our mouth! Don't just take our word for it, here is what our gorgeous brides have to say about us!
I can't tell you how excited I am to share my wedding photos with you!! I have been obsessed with Anna Campbell wedding dresses since 2010 and knew in my heart I would only wear her dresses, but I am from the US and didn't think I would have that luxury. When I was in Melbourne in 2014, my best friend and I wanted to go to the shop there but I felt like it would be bad luck to look at wedding dresses when I wasn't engaged! When I did get engaged, I discovered that a shop in Pasadena, CA (Lovely Bride) stocked her dresses and I made the drive!
I never thought I would have a bridal moment but when I put the Tash dress on, I died and went to heaven. It was beyond perfect for my soft, romantic desert spring wedding in Arizona. I got so many compliments on how unique, gorgeous and perfectly crafted it was!
I knew what I wanted, but I wasn’t finding it. I went dress shopping a few times and everything looked nice but nothing was ‘the one’. Either too big, too slinky, too fishtail and then I just so happened to see an Instagram post from Coco & Kate revealing a rack of what can only be described as the most glorious dresses. I stalked all of the wedding designers that they stocked and then, I found her. Anna Campbell. It was almost like it was meant to be as I had a trip to Australia planned with my girls and we were starting and finishing in Melbourne – so I booked a fitting at the Anna Campbell Armadale flagship store. Such a beautiful space, light and bright with rails and rails of the most phenomenal dresses I have ever seen. I chose Sierra ‘Slim line’ and I had no doubt it was the one. You don’t have to go to Australia to buy your Anna Campbell dress, there are UK stockists – the very lovely Coco & Kate being one of them.

The details of Anna Campbell's dresses are so feminine and they feel timeless - not over styled or over fashionable, just simply beautiful. They are the kind of dresses you will look back on in decades to come and still want to wear them. For my dress in particular, the Eloise, I immediately fell in love with the lace and the train. I absolutely adore the sheerness in the train itself, which makes it sexy without being loud, and the hint of sequins for a little shimmer when the sunlight catches the dress. I also love the satin bow at the back because it is so so girly! I love everything about it! The cap sleeves and neckline really suit my frame as well, and I felt gorgeous in it. You can't put a price on that feeling.
During the ring-shopping and dress-shopping processes, I had a hard time finding pieces that truly felt personal. As a designer, I value unique qualities, often hand-making my own version of things I can’t find. My fiancé and I went down the custom-design path for my engagement ring, and I planned to do the same, re-fashioning my mom’s wedding gown, until I found two new designers that encapsulated everything I could have imagined without having to go through the tedious custom processes. Heidi Gibson retro-fitted my mom’s original engagement ring into a masterpiece and Anna Campbell’s customizations to her dress styles felt unique while still traditional, bohemian and ethereal, sparkly and romantic all at the same time. It was love at first sight!

For years I had wanted to be an Anna Campbell bride, long before I had even gotten engaged. A week after Jake proposed I called the Armadale boutique and booked an appointment straight away as I knew I wanted an AC dress even though I had never tried any on before and I flew from Perth to Melbourne a few weeks later.
The whole experience was perfect. My sister in law came with me and when we opened the door, the song I wanted for my first dance was playing! The boutique was absolutely beautiful and my stylist Ella was amazing. She helped me try on a few different dresses that we chose together and was so helpful with making sure I chose a dress that fitted both my body shape and personality.
In the end I went with the Coco fit and flare. I knew straight away that was my dress when I didn't want to take it off and I didn't want to try anything else on. Ella helped me choose the Single Tier Veil, the Eliza cuff and Valencia Pearl earrings to tie it all together. I was the complete Anna Campbell bride!
I just wanted to say thank you to the Anna Campbell Armadale team for kitting me out for my wedding day.
The whole experience was so much fun, and everyone at the store was always welcoming, even when I came back in to show my Dad the dress without an appointment. This really made the experience a dream for me as Mum and Dad live in Country SA so the opportunities to show them dresses were very limited.
Finally, thank you for making such beautiful dresses, I have known for many, many years (well before I was engaged) that I wanted to wear an Anna Campbell design on my wedding day, and am so glad I did!
