Melbourne bridal retailer Raffaele Ciuca launched the stunning MUSE by BERTA collection to Melbourne, Australia. The evening was an intimate affair in their High Street, Armadale Bridal Emporium and brought together and showcased the best talent in Australia’s bridal industry.
Five stunning models wore two looks from world- famous bridal designer Berta’s new collection; Muse by Berta. The MUSE collection by Berta Bridal is 100% handmade in Israel and has a bohemian- vintage style featuring warm colours, soft materials and floaty silhouettes. These gowns are exclusive RAFFAELE CIUCA and were showcased with the luxurious 2017 VIKTORIA NOVAK crowns. Peeking through the soft tulle and silk hemlines were hand- crafted sparkling heels by MISHEY AUSTRALIA.
Canapés of black rice crisp, ocean trout, salmon pearls, celery cress. Seared Port Phillip Bay scallop, coconut and sweet pumpkin, salsify and shiso and camomile tea smoked quail taro chip, quince relish roamed the room on mirrored trays.
Guests were treated to a two course dinner and a MUSE inspired take home dessert designed by Lisa Van Zanten Executive Pastry Chef of ATLANTIC GROUP.
Guests were invited to Melbourne Meets Muse with a unique pairing, but beautifully luxe unification, of black on black invitations. The rich foiling of the text grasping their attention and carrying on to the menus. Created by the talented team at GIANT INVITATIONS.
The luxe marble dining table ran the length of the Armadale Bridal Emporium between rows of wedding gowns. Each place setting was dressed with precision, featuring all black plates, cutlery and napkins all hand- selected by HARRY THE HIRER.
The smell of fresh peonies was in the air… every surface in the store has been covered in rich, dark floral arrangements by BABYLON FLOWERS and burning candles creating a wintery and romantic mood.
