Don’t call her angel – Ariana Grande in BERTA

SEPTEMBER 16, 2019

Don’t call her angel – Ariana Grande in BERTA

Global domination is just one of the many talents of the beautiful Ariana Grande. Her latest song, “Don’t Call Me Angel,” featuring Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey for the film Charlie’s Angels has been breaking the charts – and the video release was on everyone’s radar! It is no wonder that the angelic pop powerhouse picked BERTA to unveil her new song.

Ariana looked no less than an angel herself in BERTA’s show stopping glam dress, style 19-70. As seen on Ariana during her music video, this style exudes ultra-glam, confidence, and sexiness! A silver mini crystal dress with a fitted bodice and envelope skirt detailing. Ariana rocked this mini BERTA to the max!

For more information on style 19-70 please contact our NYC showroom at nyc@berta.com.

EXOTIC ISLAND ELOPEMENT IN KOH YAO NOI, THAILAND

There’s something utterly exhilarating about eloping to a hidden paradise. Surrounded by the simplicity and silence of the coastline and timelessness of nature. COASTAL ESCAPE in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand, is the perfect location for an intimate exchanging of vowels and Sydney Wedding photographer SHERI MCMAHON has depicted that perfectly here with plenty of natural textures and enviable beach settings. I AM FLOWER designed bouquets of fresh white orchids and exotic anthuriums to shape and elevate the soft pastel tones and metallic gold table décor. Model bride Julia wears a gown with a plunging back by BERTA, and their infectious happy vibes made for amazing wedding day portraits in this picturesque setting.

Sheri is Australian based with a love for fine art film wedding photography. She is inspired by natural light, European architecture, incredible scenery and adores photographing intimate moments and authentic unique love stories. Her approach is soft and subtle. “Film is flawless, it captures light, skin tones and romance beautifully.” With a huge passion and love of travel she’s always happy to travel to capture your magical day.

Rosewood Estate

The ultimate hinterland wedding destination

Rosewood Estate is located on a magnificent 250-acre horse and cattle farm with stunning coastal views stretching from South Stradbroke Island to Coolangatta to the East and up the entire Numinbah Valley to the South.

Weddings at Rosewood Estate are a luxury country event. The stunning views and natural beauty of the plateau are the perfect backdrop for your bespoke wedding day. You and your wedding party get to spend 2 wonderful nights in the beautiful Rosewood House.

Having your wedding day at Rosewood Estate enables you to supply your own caterer & your own beverages. A marquee or Tipi will be required for any events over 50 people.

Because Rosewood Estate is 600 metres above sea level, it enjoys cool weather that escapes the heat of the Queensland summer, with an average January peak summer temperature of a very comfortable 28 degrees.  This makes Rosewood Estate beautiful for weddings in warmer months when other places would be far too hot.  If you are interested in viewing Rosewood Estate you can make an appointment by sending an email to hello@rosewoodestate.com.au

“As photographers, sometimes we are gifted with everything coming together – such was the case for Scenic Rim Bride’s styled shoot at Rosewood Estate. 

Rosewood had it all – autumnal gardens, old homestead, incredible backdrop, horses, and a sunset/after-glow to die for! All of this helped set the scene for our model Zoe to enter in Berta.

Zoe owned this shoot. We simply placed her in the light, moved around her, watched and played with the light, honed in on the subtle details and got pretty excited about it all!

We’ve worked closely with all the other suppliers involved in this shoot before, so everything fell into place easily and the vibe on location was something we were very fortunate to have. We felt incredibly lucky to be part of this extra special shoot, and are thrilled to be able to bring it all to life through the imagery.” Figtree Pictures

The colors, warmth, and whole theme worked together so perfectly and Jemma looked effortless in style ANNABEL, from our 2017 MUSE by Berta collection. A true classic and favorite, this style fit Jemma so beautifully! It worked so well with their wedding theme and the ivory color in the dress really stood out. The warm toned theme of red, ivory, and hints of green worked along perfectly with the dress she choose! We like to call this, perfection. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
