Dec 27, 2013

This year we celebrated Eleganza Sposa's 21st anniversary and we really did have  the most fantastic year.  Our success this year has been largely attributed  to the abundance of successful events that we have thoroughly enjoyed organising and being a part of. Our main motivation at Eleganza is to provide the highest quality of service to our incredible clients and we could not be more happy with the feedback we have received this year and all the beautiful brides we have had the pleasure of meeting. 2014 is set to be our biggest and brightest year yet as we strive for even more success and to keep up our title of “Favourite Italian Business”. Before kick-starting the New Year with a bang with our annual catwalk show at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel on the 12th January, we thought we would take a look back and celebrate our favourite moments of 2013.

The Bothwell Bridge Hotel catwalk show. This was an extremely successful day that saw the launch of our own bespoke bridal gown collection. Our models looked simply divine in our bespoke creations and it was extremely exciting seeing our designs come alive for the first time. bothwell
