Award Winning Gowns

The 2017 Brides Choice Award winners have been announced!

This time last year we were celebrating, having just won the 2016 Brides Choice Award for Bridal Couture. Last night we attended the awards ceremony yet again and were delighted to receive our second award. We weren’t awarded 1st prize this time, but we are just as proud to come home with ‘Highly Commended”. There were some incredibly talented people in line for awards and we’re honoured to have a place among them.

As a small business, each and every client means the world to us and our reputation. We know it takes a lot of trust to purchase a wedding gown that can’t be seen until it’s made. This award helps to show brides-to-be that we’re serious about what we do, and we do it well.

Special thanks to Yarra & Dandenong Ranges Weddings for organising the event, and to our wonderful clients for voting for us.

Here’s to next year!

Annie & Coleman’s Wedding

What a gorgeous couple!

Annie and Coleman were recently married at the lovely Linley Estate in Kilsyth.

We had a ball working with Annie and her bridesmaids creating her custom-designed Bridal Package.

After the initial consultation with our dressmaker, Annie knew this was the direction she wanted to go in. We talked her through the design and she and her bridesmaids chose these colours from our fabric samples. Our dressmaker took measurements for each of the gowns and they were on their way.

Annie was so happy with the gowns and was kind enough to share her photos and this video of her big day with us!

We wish Annie and Coleman a lifetime of happiness together.

Brides Choice Award Winners!

We won!

It happened! We’re still in shock. We were so humbled to have been nominated for this award, and we never really expected our small business would be the winner. There were much bigger businesses in the running, and we know there’s some great competition out there (lucky brides!), but we did it! We’re so happy that our brides love our designs and service so much that we were voted number 1 for Bridal Couture.

Our sincerest thanks go out to Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges Weddings for hosting the event, and all the brides who voted for us. This means a lot to us, and we will continue to strive for better and better service whilst producing gowns custom-made to suit the vision of each bride. Wow. Here’s to 2017!
