Kelsey Genna Bridal: Inspired by Nature
What was I doing when I was 21 years old? Certainly I wasn’t taking everyone’s breath away with my stunning, hand-crafted wedding dresses like Kelsey Genna is. This New Zealand-based bridal designer has made some of the most lovely and unique wedding gowns I’ve ever seen, which makes it very surprising to learn that a) she’s only 21 years old, and b) her bridal label is new, having been launched late 2012.
Kelsey brings a fresh perspective on nature-inspired gowns with her eye for detail and a skilled grasp for architectural designs. Her debut collection is quite literally the stuff of fairy tales. Inspired by a children’s book called A Flower Fairies Treasury, each gown is named after a flower and uses materials like cotton lace, dupion silk, and silk crepe de chine to create a look that’s part-fairy child, part-bohemian.
Each of the gowns are lovingly handmade in New Zealand and available in very limited quantities.
