Jack Sullivan, former ski instructor turned bridal designer, was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia. As son of internationally renowned and award-winning bridal designer, Wendy Sullivan, Jack's life has always been heavily entrenched in the fashion and design industry.
After years of studying design under Wendy's guidance, Jack has created his own unique flair, which reflects a combination of old-fashioned elegance and modern-day playfulness.
He is well-known for his unique use of fabric and his talent for customising to every bride's desire. An atypical bridal designer, Jack's irrepressible good humour and charisma are evident through every facet of his work.
Wendy Sullivan began designing her exquisite gowns under the Airs and Graces label back in 1983. This was the launch pad for her signature style, featuring eclectic hand dyed laces pieced together to create “one only” evening gowns. This very feminine look naturally flowed into bridal design, creating her true passion for bridal wear which has seen Wendy become one of the states most loved designers under the Brides Desire label.
Wendy continues to devote all her time to design and travel, focusing purely on the excellence and signature styling of her collections.
