our approach / working with us Brides are given the luxury of five unique collections that cater to every aesthetic, style, and personality. Our ELOPE collection was created for the daring bride who’s not afraid to be herself. The gowns, separate suit pieces, and jumpsuit in this line allow you to have your bridal moment without losing the true essence of who you are. Our BESPOKE Collection caters to brides looking to add a personal touch, creating a gown that is as individual as they are. Exquisitely designed pieces can be combined in a myriad of ways – perfect for brides who envision a gown with couture-like quality, but with the ease and price of a ready-to-wear wedding dress. The LUXE Collection exudes embellished luxury – a range of intricate hand-beaded sequin gowns, ready-to-wear, perfect for spontaneous brides. This collection radiates glamour, sophistication and an exceptional fit that compliments every figure. Made for the modern romantics, our WILD HEARTS Collection was designed with our signature stretch lace, creating flattering silhouettes gently skimming the body. Imagine wedding gowns that are soft, flowing, unique and highly comfortable – this collection is about romance, light and effortless style. Designed with shape in mind, the CURVE Collection offers plus size wedding dresses that ensures that every bride can find her perfect gown. A range of stretch lace gowns that softly contours the body without compromising on style or fashion. Explore our accessories and find the perfect finishing touch to your wedding day look with our range of delicate tulle veils and detachable trains and skirts.
why we love weddings The best thing is making the wedding gowns. I get to create masterpieces that I love and being a part of someone’s special day - in most cases the most important day of their lives - to me is a big honour.
