Essense of Australia Trunk Show

On Saturday 6th October, Eleganza Sposa hosted our Essense of Australia Trunk Show where our brides were granted exclusive access to over forty new gowns from the designer before the collection is finalised and released next year. Anna and her team of experienced stylists were joined by a representative from the brand who was on hand to give additional style advice, as well as insight into the inspiration behind the gowns to each of our brides.

To mark this special occasion, we were thrilled to collaborate with two spectacular vendors –Supernova Wedding Design and Tilly Makes Cake – whose remarkable range of floral arrangements and edible treats respectively, further elevated this event.

Supernova are renowned for their inventive and wondrous floral displays. Uncertain how they could surpass the elegant cherry blossom tree they had previously supplied to Eleganza, we waited with bated breath to see what creation they would provide for this event. We were not disappointed! Producing a beautifully extravagant floral tree which managed to be prominent without being overpowering; the addition of tea lights encased in hanging glass globes  added a perfect warm and romantic feel to the design.

Natalie of ‘Tilly Makes Cake’ provided a generous variety of wedding favours. A phenomenal baker with a penchant for exquisite cake design, Natalie’s cakes were enthusiastically received by all in attendance. The delicate macaroons and mini wedding cake samples were a very welcome treat for our brides, keeping them sustained throughout the search for their dream dress! The sample jars given to our brides to take home demonstrated that her creations truly are an art form!

With a range of beautifully balanced flavour combinations to choose from, ‘Tilly Makes Cakes’ offer a wide range of flavour combinations. Their menu is host to a plethora of options suitable for weddings of all types, themes and seasons. From the original and innovative – like their Pink Champagne and Strawberry cake, to more traditional cakes such as vanilla. Then there’s the outright adventurous passion fruit and white chocolate, the range and blend of flavours are all divine. With a wide scope for creativity in the design of the cakes, Tilly offers her brides the opportunity to have the vision of their wedding exemplified in the cakes she produces.

In addition to cakes, Tilly also has a range of delightful macaroons- the perfect favour for any wedding! Available in a multitude of flavours, there is something to please everyone! And if you’re looking for something different to do during your hen weekend, why not consider attending one of her private or group cake decorating classes? It’s the perfect activity to do with your bridesmaids and may even provide the inspiration you need to help you decide on the style and taste of your own wedding cake.

We are delighted that so many of our brides ‘said yes to the dress’ at our Essense of Australia trunk show and are extremely grateful to our suppliers for contributing so generously to such a fantastic day.

We are already excited for our Suzanne Neville Designer Day in November! Be sure to schedule an appointment with one of or stylists for this exclusive event!
