Aileen’s gorgeous wedding dress for her Byron Bay wedding
My Dress…I had no idea what I was looking for really but I explained to the lady in the shop that I was getting married on the beach and wanted something simple and flowing. She said she had a few dresses in mind but one in particular that she wanted me to try on. It was the only shop we went into and pretty much the first dress I tried on! Myself, my mum and mother in law all agreed that the dress was just waiting for me (it was the only one and in my size). It was perfect! The silver beading looked almost celtic in design which fits in with my Irish background and was also a big part of our wedding. I truly loved wearing my dress, I felt so relaxed and comfortable and beautiful at the same time. My husband loved it too (though he might have been a little biased). He and many of our guests thought I had it made or sent over from Ireland! love Aileen
Roanne’s beautiful wedding dress for her Byron Bay wedding
“My dress was created by Cyan Reign a beautiful soul and designer extraordinaire Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, she saved the day as I found myself without a dress one week prior to our wedding day. Cyan listened to my ideas and thoughts then designed and created my dress within 4 days, working nonstop.
My dress surpassed my expectations and I felt so feminine, like a beautiful princess, it was a dream….perfect day, perfect man, perfect Everything!!” – Roanne. Thank you Oceana, it is such an honour to describe my wedding dress !
Veerle’s flowing wedding dress
I wanted my dress to be flowing, light and comfortable and had a design in m that matched that, so I found a local dressmaker to make the dress. However, I found it hard to be assertive in communicating exactly what I wanted, and therefore the dress turned out very differently from what I had in mind… I felt horrible when I picked it up and saw how stiff it was. The beaded butterfly design I had picked out for the bodice was too big and did not even look like a butterfly to me. Luckily, one of my girlfriends was willing to spend 7 hours straight during a sweltering 43 degree summer day with me, cutting and sewing the dress and beading to make it right. It was a scary undertaking, but at the same time the dress really became my own because I fixed it myself with the help, love and patience of one of my best friends. On our wedding day I felt light and flowing in my dress, exactly how I wanted to feel,and I felt like the loving support from my friend was woven into the dress itself. With lots of love Veerle
Sandy’s romantic wedding dress
I love my wedding dress, it is beautiful, romantic and unique. Anne Leone (Byron fabric artist) brought my vision to life by printing roses on the fabric and graduating the pink hues from deep to light, then hand painting stems and leaves in between. Simon had simple matching rose printed on his shirt. - Sandy
Ali’s beautiful wedding dress for her Stradbroke Island wedding
When planning our wedding I was unsure what to do about my dress, I knew I would be 5 months pregnant at the ceremony but I didn’t know what would fit me or suit me then and I only had a couple of months to find one. Rather than go to a million bridal shops my friend suggested MXM couture and as soon as I met the dressmaking MXM twin sisters I knew that I was in very safe and magical hands. The sisters created a perfectly unique, feminine, floaty, sea inspired, fairytale wedding dress for me that was so comfortable and light I felt I was wearing air, I could dance and skip and twirl and enjoy the beautiful wedding ceremony that Oceana held for us and the joyful celebration afterward. The sisters even made a delicate shawl for me with vintage silk flowers and french lace. I still look at my wedding dress with awe, I truly cherish the love and detail that has gone into it, it is something I will always treasure. Love Ali
Samatha’s stunning & unique wedding dress for her Byron Bay wedding
I choose my wedding dress as a unique one off design and loved the feel & natural colour of my dress. I brought it from Island Lux in Bangalow where Helen, John & Sam have a superb collection of clothing from around the world. Oceana, we loved our special day with you !
