Bridal trends come and go but beautifully classic wedding gowns really do stand the test of time. Something that’s chic and elegant, with an ethereal quality that highlights your natural beauty rather than overshadowing it.

Our Anna Sorrano collection is known for its truly timeless designs, created with rich fabrics and high-quality lace and appliqués. These classic wedding gowns combine flattering silhouettes, elegant necklines and dramatic trains with minimal beading, to create a look that is always graceful and refined.

Today we’ve picked three of our absolute favourites from the collection. Each one is the epitome of tasteful understatement and will look just as fabulous in your photographs on your tenth anniversary as it did when you walked down that aisle…

Fall in love again

We absolutely adore this new ivory Platinum Edition design by Anna Sorrano. If you’ve been dreaming of classic wedding gowns then they don’t come any more elegant or beautiful than Genevieve. It has the ultimate princess skirt paired with a romantic sweetheart bodice, all covered with exquisite corded lace and subtle sparkly beading.

Iconic style

At the back you can see how those breathtaking appliqués tumble down the sumptuous skirt, fading out gently from the waist. There are also a few more carefully placed around the base, to add detail and drama to the lavish train. Wear this with a regal cathedral-length veil for a look that’s both contemporary and classic, perfect for the modern day princess bride.

Layers upon layers of lace

Lavinia is a fabulous new fishtail design covered with layered lace appliqués. Chantilly and Guipure lace have been stitched onto soft tulle to give this design a super luxurious feel. The exquisite lace has also been used around the hem for a beautiful soft finish. And, as a final touch, there are delicately placed clear sequins too, for just the right amount of subtle shimmer.

Back to basics

The low-cut back is one of the standout features of this design and reveals the pretty lace in all its exquisite detail. The lace is also used across the slim spaghetti straps and around the bottom of the gorgeous train. Why not add extra volume to the skirt with our 190 underskirt? This design looks wonderful with our Solstice belt and a traditional Windsor veil edged in soft Chantilly lace. For more classic wedding gowns with figure-hugging styles try Callista, Charlize or Melissa too.

Movie star magic

And finally, channel a little Old Hollywood glamour with this luxurious fishtail design. Seville is covered from head to toe in luxurious embroidered lace and the figure-hugging bodice combined with the dramatic flared skirt will make you feel like a movie star!

Sweetheart style

Turn around to reveal the breathtaking back detail. Embroidered lace has been placed on an illusion back to create a subtle sweetheart shape. It’s a look that’s oh-so-romantic and straight from the bridal catwalks.

Finishing touches

A few accessories will take this dress to the next level. For example, our 190 underskirt will give the skirt even more kick, while our sparkly Estella belt will accentuate your curves and highlight a slim waistline.
