Sarah wearing Essense of Australia on her wedding day 14th July 2018.

(Style number D2451)


Sarah didn’t have an idea of the style of Dress she wanted for her day. She was open to suggestions from the start and knew that Bride to Be would find the right dress for her.

She was given a beautiful Essense dress to try by Emma. She initially didn’t consider it, however she trusted Emma’s advice and once the dress was on, she fell in love with it! She also decided that the colour of the sample dress (moscato) with it’s blush tones suited her and her wedding theme more than the traditional ivory.

The D2451 is a beautifully detailed, strapless fit and flare dress with intricate lacework and panelling. With a delicately laced train, Sarah finished the look with a stunning, custom-designed cathedral veil with Swarovski crystals and lace edging also from Bride to Be.

The Dress

Sarah’s Essense of Australia D2451 dress is available in Bride to Be.

Welcome Sign

Having a Summer wedding, Sarah knew that she wanted a mix of beautiful blush pinks, peaches and lots of green foliages. She also wanted pops of brighter fuchsia to bring everything alive.

The theme was complimented with an abundance of trailing foliages, huge floral designs and gold pieces, such as candelabra centrepieces and full sequin cloths.

Sarah and her Husband had a challenge on their hands with finding their wedding venue. The first challenge was finding somewhere locally that was big enough to host their entire day, exclusively for their 100+ guests. The second was to find some-where that they had never attended a wedding at before! They found all of this in The Barn at Als-wick - and they were the first ever couple to book their wedding at this new venue!

The Venue Indoors

The stunning barn had been immaculately renovated and was the perfect blank canvas for person-al touches. Within the grounds of an old manor house, the barn had beautifully maintained gardens full of flowers, a lake, fields of sheep and an open courtyard for soaking up the sun at their outdoor ceremony.
