The most wonderful time of the year… 💕

It’s the most wonderful time of the year🌲🌲🌲no silly! Not Christmas. But summer! Wedding season; ❤️ the magical time when all these beautiful people tie the knot… and after months of hard work over here at a This Modern Love HQ, designing and cutting and sewing and creating bridal gowns I’m lucky enough to get to see my GORGEOUS Modern Love brides rock their bespoke bridal gowns on their special day… ❤️

🎈 Happy anniversary This Modern Love 🎈

🎈🎈🎈 FIVE YEARS! 🎈🎈🎈

Happy anniversary to This Modern Love!

I’m Anna, the hands and brains 🤓 behind This Modern Love ❤️ that’s me below, poised at my trusty Singer sewing machine here at my home studio with my grandma’s vintage Singer in the background for good luck… 🍀

There have been too many highlights to mention so here are just a few of my favourite captures from my lookbooks, styled shoots and real brides from the past few years… these gorgeously light, nature inspired, fine art style images really encapsulate what I aim to achieve with my designs: simple, elegant, relaxed, romantic bridalwear for the modern bride 💕

Today marks five years since I launched my bridal business #thismodernlove and I’m so thrilled that it’s going from strength to strength and keeping me very busy, but importantly very motivated ✊🏻 I’m really looking forward to the creative projects, collaborations and making that lie ahead 💕 thank you so so much to everyone who has been a part of the journey so far! I’m incredibly lucky to have worked with so many wonderful people over the last five years X 😘 ❤️

P.S. I wrote a blog post for the March #meetthemaker challenge… take a peek at the Modern Love blog a little further on to read the story behind the label as well as photography credits for the beautiful images featured in this post… 💕
