It really turned out to be WHAT every bride could only dream of, – and what creating wedding dresses is all about – to see them shine in the setting they are designed for!! Well we were missing the groom, but that’s a minor detail..Continue reading The magical OSLO fjord photoshoot!
CROSSING oceans – SADONI Bridal 2021
This photo shoot started with a desire to do a sunset city shoot, originally I wanted a rooftop with a drone filming from above and I promise that is coming! But as we also wanted to capture the urban street life, – we went with the river and bridges that I also adore in the sunset. The reflection of water is unmatched when it comes to a sun dropping on the horizon creating the most beautiful colors and mood.. We were rushing to make it as we had several locations so we managed only a few shots there, – but we did get it!!Continue reading Our enchanted CITY & SUNSET photoshoot
Bride of June 2020
“In January 2020, I searched for wedding dresses on Google and came across an article where they showed a dress from SADONI, and I simply could not let go.. I traveled far and beyond to try the dress and despite COVID-19 restictions I made it to Oslo. I was so afraid that it would not be as expected, but it was it and so much more!!!Continue reading Inger Lise’s STORY
SADONI bride of September 2019
The loveliest REAL bride 🕊️ Peggy in our flowing silk dress MAGNOLIA, shared a little anecdote from her wedding at the end of the wedding party. “On our way to bed a family member said I would probably be happy to get out of my dress because it would be uncomfortable after the long day.. My answer was: What? Do you mean THIS dress? “laughing” It’s light like a feather! I could wear it forever!
Together we storm into 2020 and a new decade with our hearts filled with hope, love and freedom to make it what we want it to be!! I say TOGETHER cause that is what we truly are on this planet. Even it’s more often side by side, we all collide and our meetings make this world MAGICAL. Finding our soul mate, a new friend, a work colleague or just the daily meeting with the lady at the store or the guy on the plane. We all give and receive in a constant flow and learn something from each other.

SADONI Bride of April 2019
Well, I was actually only searching for a second dress for the evening, as I had my dress already for the wedding when I found my SADONI outfit. Big mistake, because as soon as I spotted this beautiful, breathtaking combination of skirt and top dress, – I was just completely in love. I ordered the lace top, and wanted to wear it with some white trousers as my second outfit. But I was very soon quite unhappy with my other dress all together. So I decided to follow my heart and call Sevim from Brautzimmer in Salzburg, to order the skirt as well to get the complete look. It fitted me wonderfully!
As a designer I have wanted to write a post about SILK for a long time. Mostly because it is something so unique and beautiful that I want to share it with you all. Also it has authentic value and meaning to me as the designer and founder of my bridal brand SADONI. The natural, pure and flowing silk fabrics, have been a big part of our signature style since the beginning. Being a Norwegian brand it is deeply connected to our Scandinavian identity and values.Continue reading WHY CHOOSE SILK FOR YOUR WEDDING DRESS
SADONI Bride of June 2019
I am a big fan of the TV show where girls pick their wedding dresses, so I watched it daily all year since my husband Ben proposed to me. Finding my wedding dress was one of the main topics for me and the most exciting preparation task for the big day.
I was so happy to officially be allowed to go with my girl friends and try white expensive dresses for my own wedding. I tried on all of dresses I had dreamt about, and it felt like a fairy tail. It was just as much fun as I imagined and I liked a lot of them, but I felt a bit like a doll dressing up and not like myself. I couldn’t imagine wearing any of those big fluffy dresses at my own wedding after all, – even that was my desire from all the shows I had watched. I guess I discovered who I am in a way on my dress journey and wanted to show more of my own identity and to feel more effortless and elegant.Continue reading TETYANA’S STORY
