Gemma’s Delicate Lace and Silk Wedding Gown

Gemma and Chris married in their hometown of Clyde, New Zealand. They planned a beautiful rustic wedding from afar with the help of their family and friends.

Gemma was looking for a gown that no one else would have. We created a  soft, romantic wedding gown with a detailed lace bodice and a floaty silk georgette skirt.

Here, Gemma reflects on her special day…

What was your favourite moment on your big day?

My favourite part was walking down the isle to see my spunky (soon to be) husband and also getting pampered with hair and makeup. I honestly loved all of it.

What kind of bride did you want to be?

I wanted to be a Gemma bride. That means I really wanted to be me, not fake, not too made up. I love the vintage theme.

What was the most important thing to you on your wedding day?

The most important thing was that Chris and I had time together. It’s so overwhelming with the amount of people around you all day and I really wanted to make sure we just stopped and shared the moments together.


How did your wedding dress make you feel?

My wedding dress made me feel like I should be on the cover of a magazine. It fit perfectly and was so comfortable to wear. I loved every part of the dress and feel so lucky that I got to design it and have something noone else would have.

Who was your favourite supplier to work with?

Elvi Design was amazing in helping me design and make my dream dress. It was love at first sight with them. They made the experience really easy. I also loved our photographer. She was so professional but fun at the same time. We were her last wedding for the season so she tried lots of new things with our photos.

Any special tips on how to plan a wedding?

When planning a wedding make sure you stay true to who you and your partner are. Chris and I are fun loving and we really wanted our wedding to be fun and memorable.
