Magic in Montenegro: Eleganza Real Bride Eilidh wears Martina Liana

Eilidh’s Serbian/Scottish hybrid wedding took place in the beautiful coastal town of Herceg Novi, Montenegro. She found the perfect dress almost instantly and her day was much more relaxed knowing she had found the gown of her dreams…

To enjoy a similar experience to Eilidh, book in to our Martina Liana Trunk Show on Saturday 18th January Our trunk shows are the ultimate personal bridal shopping experience. We showcase the newest wedding dresses from Essense of Australia, giving you a chance to try on gowns that are not ordinarily carried in store.

How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My Eleganza experience was amazing! It was my first time shopping for my wedding dress and my last. The experience at Eleganza was perfect from the moment we arrived until the moment I made my choice on the dress of my dreams. The two girls who helped me choose the dress were very professional, knowledgeable and kind. I have been recommending Eleganza to friends and family since!

Tell us all about your Martina Liana gown!

My dress was the perfect dress for me! As soon as I saw it, I wanted to try it. It was the style I was looking for but not the fabric I was originally thinking. However, as soon as I put the dress on it was like it was meant to be. The dress had only just arrived into the shop, it hadn’t been tried on and it fitted like a glove. It made me even more excited to get married!

How did your husband propose?

We got engaged in Montenegro in 2018 and we knew from that moment that is where we wanted to get married. Fast forward 12 months we celebrated our wedding day in our favourite place with all our family and friends!

What was the inspiration for your wedding day?

We went for a romantic and relaxed feel, as we were getting married in the bay of Herceg Novi in Montenegro; where everything is chilled. The wedding planner out in Montenegro got every detail and expectation we wanted down to perfection and nothing went wrong!

Tell us more about your Big Day!

The day was perfect from the moment I woke up until it ended; not that we wanted it to end! From getting ready with the girls, to driving to the Monastery in the car with my dad, seeing my handsome groom at the end of the aisle, the first dance and watching everyone at our wedding enjoying every last second of it!

What was the most memorable moment?

Myself and my groom watching everyone dancing, laughing, eating and drinking; experiencing a Serbian-Scottish hybrid wedding!

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

There is not one thing I could think of that would have made my experience any more special, so make sure to enjoy every last second of it!
