SADONI Bridal 2021 – “Crossing Oceans”

Our enchanted CITY & SUNSET – PHOTO shoot 📸 is launched!!

THE STORY OF THE SHOOT..

This time the 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!!

CROSSING THE STREETS..

Shooting the city life I wanted girls crossing the street and at one moment the photographer was laying on the street in the middle of an intersection, while I was rushing backwards towards the traffic to make the silk skirts flow with nothing on my mind except success of creating a good shot. It was a rush with beeping cars and it was impossible to know if it was from delight or frustration, or both! 

THE VESPA..

We were also determined to have a Vespa scooter at the scene to create the city vibe we wanted with the portraying of the independent, strong and cool bride of today! To get it there I was willing to drive it myself even though the only memory I have of driving a scooter was sitting on the back when I was 16. Luckily they smoothly delivered a beautiful, white Vespa for us to create a modern & cool look with a romantic retro touch that is just irresistable. I think these pictures are my favorite, it is hard to choose! Follow us on Instagram and Pinterest to see them when published and get news about what goes on behind the scenes of SADONI.

We are delighted by the trendy, flowing and inspiring look, and we hope you like it too?? The new SADONI collection – “Crossing OCEANS” is now live ONLINE to view & shop until you drop!

With lots of heart, – your designer Trude SADONI

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!

Zsófia’s STORY

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!

WHY CHOOSE SILK FOR YOUR WEDDING DRESS

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.

TETYANA’S STORY

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.

JULIA’S STORY

SADONI Bride of September 2017

Finding SADONI dress was such a big coincidence – or maybe destiny!? My appointment at bridal boutique Brautzimmer in Salzburg was almost finished and I got changed in the fitting room. My maid of honor suddenly said from the outside: “Julia, there are some dresses coming in…”! It turned out that Sevim’s, Brautzimmer’s owner, next appointment wasn’t a future bride, but SADONI designer Hamid Sadoni and his Italian partner Luigi who had arrived to present the wedding dress collection 2018.
