Eleganza Real Bride Kirstyn Wearing Suzanne Neville

Eleganza Real Bride Kirstyn was surprised to find that her dream dress was a completely different style than she had initially imagined!

How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My Eleganza Experience was totally not what I expected! I tried on all of the dresses on my love list but didn’t feel like I had found the one! I was about to leave the shop to go to another appointment when Laura talked me into trying on a style I initially said I really didn’t want – and that is the dress I bought. We added a belt to it and I think that made the dress.

She then chose my veil for me and I was sold. It was just stunning and  felt so special. I can’t thank Laura enough for making me feel so relaxed and encouraging me to venture out with my comfort zone. It most definitely paid off! Oh and the glass of prosecco on arrival was a very nice touch. It most definitely calmed the nerves!

What was your favourite thing about the Eleganza Sposa boutique?

The shop is beautiful in general! The interior, the scent, the atmosphere! The girls are all lovely and the selection of dresses is very unique. 

Tell us all about your Suzanne Neville gown!

I loved everything about my dress. The delicate material and the way it moved (especially because my wedding day was windy!) and the fact we made it unique by adding a belt to it during the alterations.

I felt stunning in it, so elegant and beautiful. I’ve never worn a dress like it and that was a big thing for me. My guests were all saying it had the “wow factor” and they expected me in something fitted, so it was nice to hear that they were surprised. My dad also loved it. I managed to keep it hidden until the big day!

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

I wanted my wedding day to be classy but relaxed and that’s exactly what it was. I stuck to neutral colours and I had a harpist playing during my ceremony and the meal. It was beautiful.

Tell us more about your big day!

Our guests told us the atmosphere on the day was great. We had a dry, sunny day at the end of July so our drinks reception could be outside on the patio while we had our photos taken. The Parsonage have beautiful outdoor furniture there. This was a big thing for me.

It was so relaxed and comfortable! The day flowed so well. There was no waiting around as each part of the day was set in a different area of the venue. This was also a big thing for me & my husband & we have the staff at The Parsonage to thank for that.

What was the most memorable moment?

There are lots. I would say the car journey from my mum and dad’s house to the venue was lovely. We were so excited. Our first dance was special.

Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day?

I have lots already! Our photographer is amazing! And our guests took some great photos too! We’re waiting for our final viewing with our photographer and we are so excited to see the rest.

Please, tell us more about your overall experience at Eleganza Sposa

10/10 in comparison to other shops I visited. I was made to feel so relaxed at every appointment and it was so personal.

Do you have any advice for future brides visiting Eleganza Sposa?

Trust your stylist! They’ll know what suits your shape better than you probably do! (Haha)
