Eleganza Real Bride Maxine Fulton tells us about her wedding. From the inspiration behind her theme to her experience at Eleganza and her perfect honeymoon. How would you describe your 1st appointment? I found my dream dress at my first appointment at Eleganza, it was an unforgettable experience! Tell us about your overall experience at Eleganza. My experience with Eleganza was absolutely faultless! From my first appointment to my very last fitting I was made to feel like the most special person and all my needs were met if not exceeded by your amazing staff! I wish I could do it all again thank you so much!! The detail to my fittings were amazing my dress was tailored and made bespoke to my body type and because of the weight of my Stevie skirt there was a lot of intricate detail into how it would fit and it was all done perfectly I was blown away by your wonderful talented work! How was your one-to-one experience with your stylist? Lisa was absolutely amazing from my very 1st appointment right through until my final fitting. She listened to every detail and couldn’t be more helpful in fact she actually chose my dream dress on my very 1st appointment... I couldn’t have done it without her! Tell us about your dress! The designer of my dress was Martina Liana. I knew this dress was THE ONE as soon as I put it on. It made me feel like an absolute princess and it definitely was a show stopper. Everything about it was perfection. The lace corset which fitted like a glove, the sensational horse hair Stevie skirt which I had extra fabric added on to; the train was out of this world (a true Cinderella dress!) My stunning belt with its beaitdl diamanté embellishment completed the look. Not to forget my gorgeous veil which was trimmer with the most beautiful lace, diamanté and pearl detailing. What was your inspiration for your wedding? The inspiration for our wedding was romance. We wanted our decor to be clean and crisp, no colour just all white and mirror with candle light. Tell us more about your wedding! Myself and my partner Jay got married on 1st June 2018. I stayed at my grans the night before and left from there to go to our venue - The Parsonage at Dunmore Park. We had quite an intimate wedding with 77 guests, all family and close friends. Our wedding decor (ceremony and evenings reception) were by the very talented Jordana Events. The all white decor along with the mirror accents and candle light fitted perfectly with our romantic theme and completed my absolutely stunning wedding dress. What was the most memorable moment? Seeing my husband to be standing with our son Jenson waiting for me at the bottom of the aisle. Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went on a once in a lifetime honeymoon to the Maldives. It is absolute paradise, picture perfect and the best place to go and unwind with my husband!   Photographer: KK Snaps Florist: Jordana Event Design and Florist​ Venue 1: The Parsonage Makeup: Makeup by Rachel Lister Shoes :Vera Wang Cake: ACakes Glasgow Caterer: The Parsonage

Nicola wearing Tarik Ediz

Thank you so much for helping me find the most stunning gown and altering it perfectly for me. My gown was everything I had been looking for and more and I knew the instant I tried it on it was the one for me. I hadn’t found anything like this in any other shops and knew as soon as I saw it on the website I had to book an appointment. All the staff were so helpful and made me feel really comfortable and the shop is gorgeous too. I’m sad I won’t get to visit again now it’s all over.

Carlynne wearing Suzanne Neville

My first appointment at Eleganza Sposa was amazing, because I found my wedding dress. I was quite a relaxed bride so I was open to trying different styles on, but as soon as I tried one on I was sold. As was my mum and the stylist. The stylist was extremely helpful. Nothing was rushed and we spoke about the Big Day. She got right away what kind of wedding I was trying to put together with it being in a barn and an relaxed event. She made me feel at ease as I had tried on other dresses in other shops and was feeling a bit disheartened as I wasn’t feeling comfortable or loving anything. She gave me the best gift of all by pulling a dress I hadn’t looked at and I ended up falling in love with. The dress was Aria by Suzanne Neville. It was simple and made me feel beautiful. The dress was off the shoulder and fitted. Everyone complemented on how truly amazing it was. My experience at Eleganza Sposa was faultless. They helped me right through the journey of picking my dress to the final fitting. They were always willing to help if I had any questions.

Julie wearing Suzanne Neville

I was really nervous about my first appointment but Jill was amazing!! She was really friendly and she really did want to help me find my dream dress! The 2nd dress I tried on was actually my dress although I didn't know at the time!! When Jill asked me to try it on a 2nd time, I knew it was the one - she knew before me! I made a few changes to the dress so i was really anxious to see it but as soon as I seen it I completely fell in love! I had always wanted to get married in a castle so it was a dream come true to get married at Airth! Our ceremony was just perfect, it included a beautiful poem written by my brother. It was personal, just what we wanted! We celebrated all night and even had a surprise performance from some of my ballerinas. Eleganza Sposa did over and above their duty! Always on hand to help!

My big day has been and gone and I just wanted to thank you all for all your help and support when choosing and altering my dress. I couldn't have found 'thee' dress without your help and support, and really felt like the staff truly cared that I got the dress I wanted. I felt like an absolute princess on the day and truly loved every second of choosing my dress...so thank you!

Karen wearing Flavia Dress

Thank you again to everyone at Eleganza for helping me find my dress! It was the most difficult part of planning the wedding. I saw a few dressed on the website that I loved, however, did not suit me. I was disappointed but Angela was great - she really listened to what I liked and personally picked me 3 further dresses to try. The first one I tried was my dress and the staff were just as excited for me as I was. My initial experience with Eleganza was fantastic and I would highly recommend to future brides!

Sarah wearing Bespoke Wedding Dress

I want to say a big thank you for the amazing service I got when shopping for my dress. I can't believe it's over a year ago when I first set eyes on that beautiful jacket. I've attached some pictures of the dress on the day (and my handmade bridesmaid's dresses). The dress was a massive hit and I had so many compliments - wasn't sure on the comparisons to Adele though! Thank you again
