How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My experience at Eleganza was absolutely amazing! It was my first appointment to look for my dress - I had an idea of what I thought I wanted but Ava challenged me to try different styles. I went with one bridesmaid, but was able to facetime my mom into the appointment (as she lives in Canada!) which was so so special. I ended up picking a dress that I absolutely loved and probably wouldn't have even tried if Ava didn't suggest it! We celebrated with champagne and spent many hours deciding on 'the one'. Thank you for making it so special!


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

My husband proposed to me at my family cottage in Canada by the lake after a swim. It was everything I could have asked for - we were alone and only my Dad was aware Ryan was going to propose. I had no idea! We celebrated with my family and my grandma which was so special. We got married just 1 year later at Cobble Beach Golf resort just 30 minutes from my family cottage overlooking Lake Huron (a Great Lake in Canada!)


Tell us more about your Savin London gown!

My dress was an A line fitted to just below my bottom style with lots of detail - 3D pedals (which I was able to change to my liking!) all over, the back was open with buttons up the bottom and a V neck line. It had a long train as well. Everything I ever dreamed of! I was tentative to try it - however once it was on I absolutely adored it!


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

My inspiration for our wedding was to keep it so very natural - white flowers with lots of greenery. My bridesmaids wore sage / olive green tones and all got to pick their own dresses/styles which was a nice touch. The groomsmen all wore kilts which made it a special scottish touch even though the wedding was in Canada! We included scottish touches like a bag piper as we walked down the isle, and thistle within the flowers.



Tell us more about your Big Day!

We got married overlooking Lake Huron at Cobble Beach Golf Resort in Ontario, Canada! We had photos down by the water initially - by the lighthouse point. Followed by the ceremony outside infront of our closest family and friends. We danced the night away! Was just perfect - exactly 'us'.


What was the most memorable moment?

Saying our vows - absolutely loved this special time to listen to my husbands own vows to me.


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

I absolutely love the photo of us by the water. It was a very grey, windy Scottish day (despite being in Canada!) to start with - but the day progressively got sunnier and nicer which shows in the photos.
