Gaenor’s Elegant Lace Wedding Gown with Sleeves

When thinking about what she’d like to wear on her wedding day, Gaenor reminisced about the wedding dress her Aunty once wore. Gaenor had a picture of her as a flower girl and her Aunty in a lovely lace wedding gown with off-the-shoulder sleeves. We used this inspiration to create an epic full-length lace wedding gown with elegant long sleeves.

Gaenor and Travis married at Brookleigh Estate on a perfect Spring day last year. They had a wonderful bunch of vendors that brought their vision to life-

What was your favourite moment on your big day?

I find putting a specific moment into words as my ‘favourite’ to be an almost impossible task. Our wedding day contained so many moments which I will remember forever. To me, the special moments seemed to be endless. In saying this, I would have to say one of my favourite moments was our first dance as a married couple (something that prior to the wedding I was nervous about!). It was so special to have all our ‘nearest and dearest’ surrounding us on the dancefloor as we shared this intimate moment. For me it was at this moment that everything else seemed to fade away. There was only Travis and I. It was a moment that I realised how special the day really was. I could not wipe the smile off my face.

How did your wedding dress make you feel?

In many ways my wedding dress was created from the inspiration of a photograph taken of my auntie’s wedding dress. As her flower girl all those years ago, I remember thinking she was the most beautiful, elegant bride I had ever seen. I knew straight away that the classic, off the shoulder, sleeved gown that she wore was the style of gown I was also after. My dress, thanks to Sandra and Birgitta was exactly what I had in mind. Wearing my dress on the day was extra special as I felt I had a connection with it. It was something I had been involved in, a reflection of my personality and style. It was such an amazing experience seeing it all come together and finally being able to wear it on the day knowing it was exactly what I wanted.

What ‘style/theme’ did you choose for your wedding and why?

The theme of our wedding day came from my love of country properties and growing up with horses. Brookleigh Estate, being an Equestrian Estate, provided the perfect setting for our day. Being married in front of the old wooden stable encapsulated the rustic/country theme we were going for perfectly.
