Daniela Windisch

All of our BERTA and MUSE brides take our breath away but this particular MUSE bride is truly magical. Daniela wore a MUSE by Berta style ANNABEL from the 2017 collection. This bride completely owned the dress and styled it to perfection. As a designer herself, we just loved all her small details and touches that really created this abyss of charm and allure. Whimsical, boho, and truly dreamy we fell in love with their entire wedding! The couple is absolutely perfection and the photos are just a small piece of their love-filled special day.

A little from our #MUSE bride spotlight, Daniela:

Where was your wedding?

We got married at a beautiful forest venue called Die Woud, just outside of Cape Town in South Africa. We were completely immersed in nature throughout the day. We exchanged vows under the trees and held our reception dinner in a glass marquee, so Mother Nature was largely present throughout.

What kind of theme were you going for your wedding?

We went for a relaxed, Moroccan inspired feel with bohemian accents and lush, indigenous flora. Morocco holds a very special place in my heart, and I was completely inspired by the beautiful hues, patterns and textures when I travelled there.

What was the process like on finding your wedding dress?

I planned a trip to London in search of my wedding dress. There are so many interesting bridal boutiques in London that stock a variety of designers from all over the world, so I knew I would be spoilt for choice there. I have had my eye on Berta for as long as I can remember, and it was completely by chance that Berta was showing their Muse collection at The Wedding Club in London the same weekend I was there. From the moment I saw the dress on the rail, I knew it was the one! The delicate fabric and the unusual colour immediately spoke to me and won my heart as soon as I tried it on.

Would you like to share how you and your husband met?

We’ve known each other since we were in high school. We were introduced by my older sister and immediately connected. We started spending some time together and after trying to keep it casual, we soon fell in love. We’ve been inseparable for seven beautiful years now. We understand each other on a deep soul level and it really is a special bond that we share. We got engaged in Bali, a place that is very special to us both. Picture a private pool in the jungle, massages, a scented bath overlooking the river, gourmet vegan food and a special table for two. It was an absolute dream come true!

Did you do all the styling yourself? EX. Hair accessories, jewelry, etc.

Yes. I am a designer myself so I absolutely loved styling my look from head to toe. From the bold yellow shoes and my mom’s vintage earrings to the fairytale headpiece made in Israel; styling my look was so much fun. Having a Berta dress at the centrepiece made it a whole lot easier and allowed the inspiration to flow!

What advice would you give for future brides?

Embrace the journey. It is truly an amazing experience to plan your wedding with your fiancé, so do as much as you can together. Make a big deal of everything – you only get to experience it once so why not make the most of every single aspect! Your wedding day is pure magic, so be mindful, slow down and connect with your husband, family and friends, and above all, have fun!
