Eleganza Real Bride: Courtney

Eleganza Real Bride: Courtney


How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

I travelled from Edinburgh to Glasgow to visit Eleganza and it was amazing from start to finish. I enquired about a dress which wasn’t in stock but the team managed to get the dress in for me to try. From the moment we stepped in the door I was made to feel like a bride! And my mum and mother in law were made to feel important which is something that I really wanted. There was a huge range of dresses, incredibly friendly staff and just the most beautiful setting.


Would you like to share with us your proposal moment, favourite part of planning your wedding or what you have planned for your honeymoon?

I chopped my hair half way through the day and it it was so much fun! The new hair went so well with the dress.


Tell us more about your Essense of Australia gown!

My dress felt like it was made for me. It was so different but still bridal.



What was your inspiration for your wedding? Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette?

We just wanted to make sure the day was so much fun for our guests but actually our guests made it what it was. We got married at Pratis Barns, Leven which is just stunning - we went for a very neutral theme and honestly it didn’t need to be dressed over the top, the venue spoke for itself.


Tell us more about your Big Day!

We had amazing weather for our chilly November wedding! The sun was out all day and the views were insane.


What was the most memorable moment?

We had a surprise firework display. Myself and the groom didn’t know it was happening but it totally set the tone for the evening.


Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day? Why is this image so special to you?

There’s a picture of us walking back up the aisle and you can see how happy we both were.
