Eleganza Real Bride Cheryl wearing Suzanne Neville

Eleganza Real Bride Cheryl's Scottish themed wedding was a very elegant affair! Find out more about her day below as well as her experience as an Eleganza Bride. How would you describe your Eleganza Experience? I couldn't fault it! Very good, excellent service. Found my dress in the first one so obviously very good at their job.  How was your experience with your stylist? All the staff were so helpful and full of positivity.  Exceptional service as you would expect from a boutique Would you like to share with us your proposal moment? We didn't propose as such; we just kind of said "Let's get married" and if you listen to the song of the same title by The Proclaimers then you'll know why. Tell us all about your Suzanne Neville dress! My dress was called "The Phoenix".  I asked for effortless elegance and that's what I got.  Everyone on the day said I looked like an old Hollywood starlet.  I wanted a button up back and for it to be sheer.  The dress fit like a glove; the seamstress and her team did an amazing job! Did you follow a specific theme for your wedding? We wanted a Scottish theme. Tell us more about your Big Day! It was just the perfect day!  I was so emotional seeing everyone I love in one room and seeing my wife to be standing waiting on me.  We were only apart a night yet it felt like a lifetime.  The ceremony is something we will never forget; the most memorable part of the day and the part we both wish we could live over and over again.  Everything just came together perfectly. What was the most memorable moment? For me, the most memorable moment was walking down the aisle with my dad towards the woman I love.

Eleganza Real Bride Jesse wearing Riki Dalal

Eleganza Real Bride Jesse talks us through her Eleganza Experience and wedding day! How would you describe your first appointment? Superb I found my dress!! Laura was fantastic, made me feel really welcome and discussed my options with me. How was your experience with your stylist? Laura was fantastic she had previously looked at my Love List and knew the style I was looking for. She brought out some stunning options but I knew as soon as I tried the 'Mona' on it was for me. Tell us all about your Riki Dalal dress! It's a fitted, detailed corset to my waist with lace design and sheer panelling on the back. The bottom skirt is soft Italian lace with intricate detailing around the edges. The dress has a blush, nude overlay which was different to the traditional ivory and white dress and something I love! Did you have a theme or specific colour palette? My theme was vintage, blush and white with a few bicycles thrown in for good measure! Tell us more about your wedding day! It was amazing from start to end. Louise Hughes from the bridal boutique did me and my sister's hair for the day. We all did our own make-up and my sister Ruth did mine! We had a vintage VW van that was super cute and picked us up from the venue! The service was lovely at Our Lady's and was so special. We then moved onto Ingliston where Shauna kept everything in check. She was phenomenal!! The food was superb and everyone is still talking about the sticky toffee pudding! We then had the band Daytura who ensured the dance floor was never empty. The ceilidh was an absolute scream for our English guests- never laughed so much. Kevin, our photographer was also brilliant. I really enjoyed the wee hours we had taking photos in-between the meal and the evening guests. It meant I got to spend some time with my husband and catch up. What was the most memorable moment? There were so many!! Climbing the fence to where it all began at Jason's proposal, the vows, dancing with my mum arghhh brilliant day! How did Jason propose? Jason proposed to me just over the field from Ingliston Country Club. We are both outdoors people and were out for an evening walk when he asked me. Please, tell us more about your overall experience with Eleganza Sposa Personal. I felt like I wasn't another bride that day, month or that year! Which made a huge difference. All the staff where wonderful from the day to the end. Nothing was a hassle and I was made to feel welcome and valued as a bride.   I couldn't have done the wedding without all my family members! From my sisters and Jason's Dad making a sweet cart- the whole thing was brilliant!!   Photographer: Kevin Key Photography Florist: MUD Urban Flowers Venue 1: Our Lady of Lourdes, Bishopton Venue 2 :Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton Makeup: My sister Ruth Shoes: Steve Madden pink block heel Cake: My mother in law Caterer: Ingliston Country Club Music: Daytura Others: SKLMitchell did my invitations and table plan.

Eleganza Real Bride Louise wearing Martina Liana

Eleganza Real Bride Louise looks beautiful in her Martina Liana Gown! She tells us more about her wedding day below. How would you describe your first appointment at Eleganza? The first appointment was fab, the shop is so grand and luxurious it made the experience memorable.  I loved eleganza, the thing I loved most was the shop and how luxurious it feels when you are in it! The service was great And of course the dress selection is truly out of this world! How was your experience with the stylist?  My stylist was great! I model at a lot of the wedding shows so I had worn hundreds of dresses before. I had an idea of what I wanted and didn’t want. We picked dresses and just eliminated them until I finally tried on the dress I said yes to. Tell us all about the dress!   My Martina Liana dress was all lace, with sheer sleeves and lace down the centre of the arms, the train was long with a low back. On the front the lace was placed over my shoulders and cane down slightly at the chest area. For myself it was very hard making a decision on a dress as I had worn so many for work. However, when I had my dress and veil on  it was like nothing I had worn before which I loved! I can’t say I knew as soon as I had the dress on even though I did know I loved the dress, making the decision was hard, but after a quick phone call to my fiancé to give me the reassurance I purchased the dress that day! Did you have a theme or specific colour palette for your wedding? I wanted everything very soft colours peach, blush, ivory, golds. I then got my florist to add some brighter tones in the bouquets to stand out! The venue was all neutral tones soft and romantic. Tell us more about your Big Day! I had four bridesmaids, a flower girl and page boy! I stayed calm the full morning, I took some time out and went upstairs to do my makeup before going down and joining everyone else! The day goes by in a flash... all the suppliers really do help make your day and they did such an amazing job working around everyone and the chaos that goes on in the getting ready stage! I wish I could go back and do it all over again and I think most of the guests wish they could as well!   What was the most memorable moment? No one had seen my dress apart from my mum, so the dress revealing was definitely one to remember! Also seeing Chris looking all handsome at the bottom of the alter too! How did Chris propose? Chris proposed to me in New York! We were at dinner in a restaurant called 'The View' which is up in the sky line and the restaurant rotates so you can see the most amazing views of NYC! After dinner he had the waiter bring the ring over and he got down on one knee! It was special! What are your plans for your honeymoon? For our honeymoon we are off to Dubai and the Maldives! Staying at the Ja with an ocean view room in Dubai and then onto the Kuramathi in the Maldives with an amazing beach villa and then a water villa for the last few nights! It’s well earned after planning an amazing wedding day which is not easy!   Photographer: Kksnaps Florist: Betty Blue Bell Venue 1: St Mirin's Cathedral Paisley Venue 2: Bothwell Bridge Hotel Makeup: Bride ( I did my own) Bridemaids:  Anna mcIlmun Shoes: ASOS bridal Cake: Special Days Cakes Caterer: Bothwell Bridge Hotel  Music: Dj ( 5 Star Events) Videographer: Big Day Movies

Our wedding had a Spanish theme as Arta was based on a Spanish villa. Rustic but modern. Tell us more about your Big Day! We chose to have our full wedding day in Arta. We loved how unique a venue it was and the Spanish theme too, so decided to go with that. We fell in love instantly. The full day was just absolutely beautiful- it was the best day of our lives. We had the most amazing surprise for guests too as we came down the staircase to do our first dance we had 100 rose petals poured over us over the balcony. It was so romantic I actually started  crying. My cake was a rustic naked cake with orchids around it. The band were absolutely fab and our guests kept telling us how amazing they thought our pianist Alex was on the day. Such a talented lovely man . Our day was just perfect and went just how we wanted it. We would love to do it all again- especially wear my dress! What was the most memorable moment? Our first dance, it was so romantic How was your overall experience at Eleganza? Amazing experience from start to finish.

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!
