What is a Grace woman to you?

A woman who prioritises how she feels, rather than how she looks. If you feel beautiful in what you’re wearing, nothing else matters!

Which dress did you wear and how did you know it was 'The One'?

I chose the Summer Gown. As soon as I put it on it felt very me. I struggled with a lot of wedding dresses because I felt so foreign in them! I’m used to moving around in active wear and barefoot, so big white gowns were a little intimidating. This dress made me feel so special yet completely comfortable and myself.

Did you buy your wedding dress online or visit one of our Showrooms?

I was telling my girlfriends how much I was dreading going to more fittings and they mentioned the Grace showroom so the next morning we decided to pop in just for fun. We had the best time and I’d found the dress within 10 minutes.

What made your wedding day extra special?

Our little honeypots made from a family friends bee hive. I loved receiving morning texts of my loved ones enjoying fresh honey on sourdough, reminiscing on the fun we had together.

The funniest moment on the day was…

Telling my hairdresser that if he can cut hair, he can cut my veil. I accidentally got lipstick all over it when leaving the room to head to the church. Love you Brad.
