Real Bride: Bailey August 19 2016
Bailey was the most lovely bride of ours, and the last for our season, she was to be wed over on picturesque Wahieke Island and we loved the sound of her wedding which was shaping up to be a beautiful, charming affair. Over her bespoke process Bailey knew she was after a classic yet chic bridal look and loved the idea of pairing separates together to make up a gorgeous bridal ensemble, her final look was made up of a Chantilly lace top worn over a silk dupion bustier and paired with a voluminous, tiered, tulle skirt.
Congratulations again Bailey and Aidan, we wish you both all the very best for your future together x

Alicia came to visit us in the boutique looking for the perfect finishing touches to her bridal outfit.

Real Bride: Laura April 04 2016
Laura is a wonderful visual artist and photographer, and when she came to see us in the boutique seeking a bespoke dress for her wedding day we were thrilled to be involved. As she described to us her dream day, set in a picturesque forest followed by a relaxed and rustic reception on her family's property, we knew the dress design she had chosen from our collection would be absolutely perfect for her. Laura's bridal look was made up of a Chantilly lace top worn over a silk dupion bustier and paired with a gathered full circle Chantilly lace knee length skirt.
Laura also chose a sweet little garter from our boutique.
Real Bride: Stephie April 04 2016
Stephie is a dear friend of ours and we were collectively so excited to work on her bridal and bridesmaids dresses. Stephie spotted a new design of ours as showcased at the New Zealand Weddings Magazine Bridal Showcase at New Zealand Fashion Week and fell in love with it, over a consultation with Natalie it was decided the runway dress would be recreated entirely in lace for our bespoke bride.
Alongside her gorgeous gown, we created a lace headpiece and five tier cathedral veil for Stephie's bridal look.
We also created bespoke dresses in a different style for each bridesmaid who are pictured here, also wearing our silver charm wreaths.
Congratulations again Stephie and Jono, we wish you both all the very best for your future together x

Real Bride: Debbie November 17 2015
Debbie was the first of our brides for the 2015-2016 wedding season, and was so lovely to work with. Ever pleasant, she was a pleasure to get to know better over her dress fittings, and we had a lot of fun creating for her a sweet tea length dress. Debbie's dress featured a lace three quarter sleeve top over a sweet heart bodice, while the circular knee length skirt was made in a beautiful silk dupion.
Real Bride: Siobhan August 24 2015
Siobhan was newly engaged when she came to visit us in the boutique and searching for inspiration, falling in love with not one but two of our gown designs from our ready-to-wear collection, Siobhan opted for a made-to-measure design combining ideas from both gowns! Siobhan's gown featured a tulle bodice with a keyhole back and beautiful lace applique, and the silk chiffon skirt was finely pleated with a detachable train. We love how happy her and her beau look.
Real Bride: Christine July 06 2015
Newly engaged Chris came into our boutique searching for bridal inspiration and fell in love with our 'Antique Goddess' gown, a simple asymmetric gown with softly pleated chiffon and a full lace back. We created one especially for her and along the bespoke process we then also embellished the front of Chris' gown with delicate crystal detailing. And finally a crystal and feather headpiece was the perfect finishing touch for Chris' bridal look.
