Today I am thrilled to showcase the incredible bridal gowns of Wendy Makin, and her gorgeous new French Collection.

Wendy’s philosophy for designing bridal gowns is to keep the design simple and elegant.

With an incredible eye for detail, Wendy’s more than 30 years experience designing bridal gowns is evident in the cut, make and finish of her Wendy Makin Couture and Ready to Wear gowns.

Recognised as one of Australia’s best Bridal Wear designers, Wendy’s multi award winning style and her impeccable customer service ethic is highly applauded throughout Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Sourcing beautiful laces and exquisite fabrics from around the world, Wendy’s high regard for producing only the highest quality wedding gowns from her production teams is your guarantee of a gown you will love and treasure for your wedding day.


Wendy has just released her new French Collection from BellaDonna Bridal to rapturous accolades around Australia and now in the UK.

BellaDonna is the inspiration of Wendy Makin who saw a need in the market for a fun, young, modern collection for today’s modern bride.

Her new french collection follows through this philosophy by fusing vintage glamour with classic styling.


Showing the collection in Sydney and Melbourne in mid February and at London Bridal fashion week in May, Wendy said she was overawed with how well the collection was accepted by retailers and brides alike.

Featuring beautiful French laces, soft tulles, flowing chiffons and exquisite beading, the collection has been developed by Wendy and her team over the last 12 months.

Consultation with brides to be and former brides helped her to formulate the new direction for this collection which is quite unique and very different.

Along with the beautiful laces, fabrics and handwork, the collection will feature an exciting palette of colours including nude, beige as well as ivory and champagne.

The new collection will also feature lace sheaths with slip dresses underneath which will give the bride the opportunity to change her look from ceremony to reception as well as detachable trains which can move the bride from formal to casual very quickly.


“I see this collection as appealing to the bride who wants a vintage look but with a quality bridal cut and fit” is how Wendy described the collection.

“There are a lot of brides who are moving away from the more conventional bridal looks and are experimenting with styles as they are doing different things with their style of wedding” she continued.

” The whole bohemian, vintage look is getting stronger and we have embraced that with this collection”


Wendy Makin Bridal Designs is also celebrating 22 years of making brides beautiful and has been available in the UK and Ireland since 2002.

Wendy is recognised as one of Australia’s best bridal designers and her signature look of simple elegance is widely sought after throughout Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Thank you so much to Wendy for sharing her exquisite bridal gown collection.

I love the ethereal, whimsical air to the collection with delicate tones and beautiful fabrics, so stylish.

It would be really hard to choose a favourite from such a stunning collection but the nude tones of  Giselle just blow me away… breathtaking.
