Eleganza Real Bride Rebecca Wearing Essense of Australia

Eleganza Real Bride Rebecca incorporated the colours from her husband’s tartan kilt into the design of her wedding. She tells us more about her Eleganza Experience below!

From the moment I walked into Eleganza Sposa, I felt like I’d walked into a movie. Everything was white and there was just an air of luxury. This feeling of luxury continued throughout both of my appointments at the store, where Amanda helped me pick out my dream dress. The bubbly was a really nice touch, that you don’t get in many bridal shops anymore.
I loved the entire experience!

My favourite thing was the interior design, and the big flower arch!

My experience was brilliant from start to finish. Amanda helped me consider designs I wouldn’t have immediately chosen for myself. She was friendly, and put me at ease while trying on the dresses. She let me take as long as I needed to make sure I had found ‘the one’!

I saw the dress on the Eleganza website first and immediately added it to my ‘Love List’. The dress incorporated lots of features that I liked: strapless, A-line, a bit of lace, a bit of sparkle and a beautiful train!

As soon as I tried it on, I felt totally amazing and couldn’t get the smile off my face. At the time I said “there’s nothing I don’t like about it”. My sister’s reaction when I showed her it (on FaceTime) before I ‘said yes’ was “it’s perfect, it’s got everything that you want”. That’s when I knew it was the one!

Our colour palette was dark green and cream, with a wooden/rustic feel. The colour choice was to match my husband’s tartan.
We had amazing weather, which meant we could have our ceremony outside overlooking the loch, which was our dream! Unfortunately this also led to a wasp getting stuck in the two tiers between my veil during the ceremony and my dad having to remove it while not scaring me! Apart from that everything went smoothly and it was wonderful seeing all of the people I care about in one place to celebrate our marriage!
Our first dance, which was recorded by my cousin so made even more personal and special for us.
My favourite picture is of my husband and I standing on the Cruin’s jetty. Our photographer got into the loch to take the photo, which was very dedicated and meant we got a very different angle from most people!
Did you honeymoon following your wedding?
Our honeymoon was in Malaysian Borneo, where we took a three day river trip and spotted lots of monkeys, an orangutan and some pygmy elephants! We then went on to a hotel just off the coast of Borneo to totally relax, go snorkelling and eat amazing food! We even had a private BBQ on the beach, which was a memory we will treasure forever!

I was made to feel like a princess. I honestly couldn’t fault the experience. When I had decided on my dress, other Eleganza staff were walking past and telling me how amazing I looked. I was made to feel so special!
