Anna Schimmel: European Bridal Designer


I have long admired and revered Anna Schimmel's work.  It is simply exquisite, and so when we approached Anna with the idea of producing a little film for her about herself and her company we were simply thrilled when she ran with the idea.

It's taken a long time to put this together, to arrange the filming days, organise brides-to-be who are willing to be filmed through fittings and trials etc and to finally produce this gorgeous film for Anna.

The project started with a clear direction: Detail.  One of the hallmarks of an Anna Schimmel gown is its detail.  And not just detail in the sense of lace and decorations, but also detail from a craftsmanship and tailoring point of view.  Each gown is custom designed and the sewn specifically to fit each individual bride.  Their gown is "them". It has never been created before and is a one of a kind, there is no "off the rack" with anything from Anna Schimmel and so her style and skill, I believe, is unsurpassed in New Zealand.

What becomes clear through this film is just how personal the experience is for Anna, her team, and their clients.  It is about the ‘Anna Schimmel Experience’, from first contact through to wearing their gown on the day of their wedding. Each bride is made to feel special, through the utmost care, respect and attention that Anna and her team extend to her.

Anna's team are simply awesome as well, putting in long hours, particularly over the busy summer period to ensure that the craftsmanship is kept impeccably high and that all brides get their gowns on time and as they expect them. 

This was a film that was made with passion, which believe me that is easy for us to do when someone like Anna has such an infectious passion and love for her own work.  We are very proud of this little film and have been so privileged to work with her over the last 12 months on what we feel captures the essence of Anna Schimmel:  European Bridal Designer.
