Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Designer Bridalwear shoot with Opus Atelier at Rowallan Castle.
Images were captured by the fabulous Tom Cairns.
Tom says of the shoot…
“Over the last couple of years I’ve worked on a few shoots with Sharon and her fab team at Opus Couture.”
“Situated in the beautiful coastal village of West Kilbride, Opus Couture is very well established, and having been in business for 12 years is held in high regard by designers and customers alike.”
“I recently met up again with owner Sharon at a wedding event where she told me the exciting news that she was going to be the first Bridal store in Scotland to stock the most incredible range of designer wedding gowns.”
“Their beautiful new boutique Opus Atelier brings high end, designer bridalwear to Scotland, and is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the high street to give the exclusice luxury experience.”
“So with this in mind it seemed like a damn fine idea to plan for an uber stylish shoot to showcase a few of incredible gowns.”
“Branded under the name Opus Atelier three of the designers gowns we featured on the shoot were Berta, Badgley Mischka and Charlie Brear.”
“Having recently been selected to the preferred suppliers list of photographers at the stunning Rowallan Castle, I just knew that was the perfect location for the shoot.”
“Set in beautiful Ayrshire countryside, Rowallan Castle Golf & Country Club offers a championship golf course, a stunning wedding venue and relaxed dining in the Glasshouse Restaurant.”
“With the team of Taylor Collier-Brown, our model, Hair stylist supreme Anna Wade and Makeup by MAC specialist Shannon O’Neill the stage was set for showing off these beautiful designs in an incredible location.”
Berta’s avant-garde designs have taken the bridal world by storm.
Berta’s work is based on high quality, uniqueness and premium level finishes and an artistic approach.
The luxurious fabrics, which are imported from fashion capitals around the world, go through a handmade development process in Berta’s studio. By doing this, Berta consistently has new and unique textures and fabrics for her line of bridal dresses.
With more than 17 years of experience as a bridal designer, and with more than 50 locations around the world, Berta is now established as one of the world’s leading bridal designers. When you try on a Berta gown, everything falls into place. The cut, the fit and the silhouette are all unlike anything else.
Opus Atelier have currently 5 styles available to try on, with more being introduced over the coming months…

Mark Badgley and James Mischka have been hailed by Vogue as one of the “Top 10 American Designers” and as the darlings of the Hollywood set.
The design duo has made their mark over the past two decades with glamorous, stylish and wearable evening wear and accessories.“Our style harks back to the glamorous Hollywood of the Forties,” says Mischka. “The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant.”
Their designs are constructed of the finest fabrics and superior craftsmanship.
There is always an element of interest, either in the silhouette or with luxurious detail. They have remained true to this design philosophy and the consistent integrity of their collections have pushed them to the forefront of fashion.
Clients ranging from presidential daughters to Hollywood award-winners to society brides have chosen Badgley Mischka to ensure they look their best during some of the most memorable and stylish events of their lives.

Spurred on by the growing interest in original vintage pieces, Brear designed a capsule collection of made to order gowns, offering a contemporary take on vintage glamour.
Its success in house led to the first full collection selling to market in 2011.
Brear next produced Additions, a collection of unique styling pieces to complement the made to order line.
Starting with a simple crepe, satin or chiffon dress and layering everything from sequined overdresses and tiered skirts to hand beaded pieces, belts, sashes and sleeves, a bespoke look can be effortlessly customized to create a brides own perfect look.
Charlie Brear collections of Ready-to-wear, Bridal and Additions are designed and produced entirely in the UK, using a diverse range of hand selected fabrics and trims
