9 Stunning Maltese brides from 2018 to inspire your bridal look
Take a look back at some of 2018’s prettiest brides for some seriously gorgeous bridal ideas.
1. Bettina Cassar
Bettina Cassar – one half of The New Victorians – wanted “something with sleeves, with a nice back and nothing too elaborate (no sequins please)” for her April wedding. She paired her warm cream-coloured dress from Kenjo Bridal with long loose locks and a flower crown for the perfect boho wedding style.

For her springtime wedding celebration at Xara Palace, Christine Bonnici wore a stunning lace dress with a gorgeous neckline from Camilleri Paris Mode, complete with a long train. She finished off the look with an elegant updo and glamorous smoky eye makeup.

3. Stefania Taylor
Stefania Taylor had two wedding dresses – a simple summer dress for the trip to the registrar’s office in September, followed by a princess-style dress from Wedding Bells in Valletta for the celebration in the family field a couple of days later. She styled her red hair in a low bun, with a pretty white headpiece.

4. Karin Martin
Karin Martin wore a handmade ivory flapper dress for her Vegas elopement, which she bought online from a specialist store. “It was a bit of a gamble to buy without trying on, but it fit like a glove,” she says. She completed the Roaring Twenties look with soft curls and subtle makeup, which perfectly fit the wedding’s vintage Americana style.

5. Vanessa Grech
Vanessa’s wedding in Florence oozed Italian glamour, and her bridal look fit in perfectly with the theme of the nuptials. The striking lace dress with a detachable overskirt was coupled with a bold, dramatic make-up look, and she looked every inch an Italian princess.

6. Christabelle Borg
Christabelle’s wedding day was among the most highly-anticipated social events of the year among Malta’s influencer set. The bride, who represented Malta at Eurovision this year, wore a Cinderella-style dress, with long lace sleeves and over 200 metres of tulle for the skirt, with her long dark hair cascading in elegant waves.

8. Eliza Calleja
Eliza wanted an off-the-shoulder wedding dress, but couldn’t find the right one, so a strapless gown had to be customised for this purpose. “I had to do fittings months apart, every time I was in Malta, and had to order additional lace for the sleeves, but in the end, with the help of a very good seamstress and amazing staff at Alamango Bridal, we managed to pull it off.”

9. Janice Pulo
Janice’s dress and veil had a distinctly vintage Spanish look. She wore a delicate lace dress that flattered her petite figure, and a long, traditional, mantilla-style veil. Wearing only the lightest of makeup, the bride’s dark hair was gathered in an elegant loose bun.
