Real life Perth Brides and the Bespoke Wedding Dresses that made their day

Every bride-to-be we meet at Zanzis is unique, and every single one of those brides deserves to look and feel absolutely amazing on their wedding day.


For many women, it’s the one day of their life they will take centre stage, and the only chance they’ll ever have of having a bespoke wedding dress made just for them.


A custom couture creation is something every woman should experience at least once in a lifetime.


We take pride in getting to know our Perth brides ensuring we find the right design and detailing for them, and love the fact that we form such a lovely relationship as the bespoke wedding dress design evolves over a series of fittings in our Perth studio.


By the time the wedding has arrived, we are bursting to hear how their special day goes, and how their couture gown made them feel.

Married at Santa Maria Chapel, with their reception at The Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club


A smile from across the dancefloor started Claire and Sam’s love story. After hitting it off at the Cottesloe Beach Hotel, sparks flew and they were soon a couple.


Claire’s first heard about Zanzis when her cousin was having a bespoke wedding dress created for her special day. Claire witnessed up close the love and dedication we put into every single design in our studio.


Every wedding gown is lovingly created with the individual in mind, to suit their style, body shape and wedding day dreams. Claire knew she would one day be able to visit Zanzis for her own wedding gown and when she was getting married, she did!


After our first meeting, Claire was thrilled that we understood her vision, and could include elements she had her heart set on.


“I knew I wanted my dress to be fitted with a low back and beaded straps and that’s what I got!”

Claire enjoyed choosing every detail of her gown, something most Perth brides don’t get a chance to do.

“I love that I got to choose every detail with Jennifer’s guidance and expertise.”

After all if it wasn’t for her they may never have met.


With a background in fashion design, we knew as soon as we met Joanne how important it was for her to create the dress of a lifetime. After trying on numerous wedding dresses in multiple Perth bridal stores, Jo knew a bespoke wedding dress was the best way to reflect her style and personality.


From our first meeting, Jo knew she was in the right place.


“When I met Jennifer she took to time to know me and understand my style and what I was thinking and understood the importance of creating a gown that was just for me.”

The couture process is not rushed, we always take the time to listen carefully to what the bride wants, and understand their induvial style and personality.


With a brief to create something classic but not a typical white wedding dress, “ I knew I wanted something a little different, not your typical white wedding dress, but something still classic” we decided to start with a base of nude tulle.

Our gorgeous bridal gowns encompass the natural beauty of Paris’ tree-lined streets and meandering canals to Perth brides. Glamorous fabrics reflect a rich garden tapestry, with lush leaves entwined with blooming natural lines.

Just as iconic buildings evolve from an architect’s vision, our couture bridal gowns take shape from inspired designs like no other.

Real Perth Brides Share Their Love Stories

Perth Brides: Your wedding dress should be like your love story. Once in a lifetime, unforgettable and uniquely yours.

Jennifer Naglan, Head Designer for Zanzis Couture, helps Perth brides to find their fairytale in a bespoke wedding dress.

“I’m so privileged to get to know so many brides to be, to hear their wonderful stories of falling in love, the proposal, everything little detail that has brought them to our design studio,” she says.

“It’s a rewarding process to translate their romantic love stories and their personalities into a bespoke wedding dress. It creates such a special bond. The couture design process is about more than just the dress; it represents the love story that has brought them together.”

Zanzis love story: Holly and Leon

Married at Alverstoke, Brunswick WA

Perth brides Holly-Leon Wedding

When Holly flew to Broome for a girly weekend, she didn’t know her true love was waiting for her at a local tavern! After spending a day at the races, they locked eyes and ended up dancing the night away together.

After a romantic date at the Broome night markets, it was time for Holly to go home. But the sparks had flown, and two months later Leon moved back to his hometown, an hour away from Holly.

Zanzis-Couture-in-Perth-bespoke-wedding-dressOnce they were engaged, Holly knew exactly where to find her fairytale dress. She didn’t want to look at the dresses all other Perth brides did. She wanted a dress by a specific high end designer. But after a Sydney trip to look at the designer bridal gown she had in mind, it wasn’t quite right.

Holly’s sister suggested she try Zanzis Couture in Perth for a bespoke wedding dress that brought in all the features of the dress she’d had her heart set on.

When Holly met Jennifer, she knew instantly Zanzis could create the dress of her dreams, with a few special twists of her own.

Wanting to look and feel amazing on the big day, Holly worked with Jen to create a custom couture gown that represented both Holly’s personality and her love story with Leon.

There were lots of tears from Leon when he laid eyes on Holly, he was awestruck by the dress and studied the detailing throughout the day.

Holly and Leon’s ceremony is remembered by family and friends as one of the most emotional weddings they’ve ever been to. There was not a dry eye in the house as they exchanged their heartfelt vows.

The gown Holly worked with Jen to create is part of the beautiful memories to be treasured for a lifetime.

Zanzis love story: Christine and Ashley

Married at Khayangan Estate Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia

Christine was Ashley’s girl next door – they lived across the road from each other as kids. After finding love close to home, Christine was thrilled when Ashley proposed.

Christine was determined to shake up the ideas people had about the type of dress she might have. Trying on all the wedding dresses Perth had to offer, she knew when she arrived at Zanzis Couture that a bespoke wedding dress was her only choice.

The Zanzis designers understood Christine wanted fun and unpredictability, with an eye to classic elegance and sophistication.

Ashley says he had to focus on Christine’s face during the ceremony, because the vision of her wedding gown was too emotional! He couldn’t keep his eyes off Christine, and told her she’d surprised him with her dress choice, just as she’d hoped.

Christine’s bespoke wedding dress was showcased on a wedding day filled with love and laughter. They walked the streets of Bali laughing and holding hands, ready to start the rest of their lives together.

It has to be about the dress.

This is your chance to show the world who you are.

So make it a moment they’ll never forget.


The Everlasting Beauty of Bespoke

Every detail, every embellishment, every drape of fabric comes together through the couture process to create bridal perfection.

The difference between a bespoke bridal gown and a mass-produced wedding dress is simple. Off the rack gowns are mass produced and worn by thousands of brides. Your bespoke gown is delicately handcrafted over months.

5 Elegant Accessories to Complement your Couture Bridal Gown

Couture Bridal Gown: As your wedding draws closer, you’re excited to show the world your dream couture gown. You’ve spent hours in the design studio, you know the gown is a perfect fit; the fabric and delicate hand beading is intricate yet retains a delicate simplicity.

You have no regrets about the dress, and nothing less than the perfect bridal accessories will do.


Choosing your bridal accessories

Your bridal accessories need to complement your gown, and highlight the unique couture personality you’ve helped created in the design.

You should always make sure your once in a lifetime bridal gown remains the hero of the day with sophisticated and understated accessories.

Our Zanzis Couture head designer, Jennifer Naglan recommends a simple philosophy for choosing accessories to accent your gown.

“Less is more. Concentrate on one key accessory. Remember the wise words of Coco Chanel, get dressed, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.”

So here’s our Zanzis guide to the top 5 accessories to complement your couture gown.


 1. The ultimate wedding shoe

ultimate wedding shoe
Couture Bridal Gown

A pair of statement shoes can be the perfect finishing touch for your custom wedding gown. But there is a fine balance to be struck. You must ensure the chosen bridal shoe complements your couture gown as opposed to taking away from it.

If you really want to stand out and create an impression your guests won’t forget, why not treat yourself with to a pair of classic Jimmy Choo’s or YSL sparkling heels.

The right pair of shoes from a designer label that matches the high-end couture details of your gown allows your personality and signature style to shine through.


 2. An elegant clutch

elegant clutchA clutch is every bride’s best friend on the big day.

A hiding place for make up for those quick touch ups, tissues for those emotional moments, emergency hair pins and of course your wedding day perfume, a scent you’ll never forget.

When choosing a clutch look for an elegant, classic style with minimal embellishment in a neutral tone to compliment your bridal gown.




 3. The subtle hair accessory

subtle hair accessoryYou may not need a hair accessory at all if your gown is heavily detailed and embellished. But if you have chosen a less embellished style, it’s the perfect opportunity for a custom-made headpiece that becomes an heirloom to treasure forever.

Look for simple, handcrafted, gilded creations, that are understated and a world away from the traditional costume jewellery most brides choose.

If you do choose a hair accessory or headpiece, talk to your couture gown designer about the best options to complement your dream dress.


 4. The iconic bridal veil

The iconic bridal veil - couture gown If you decide on a veil, again always look for a classic style that complements your bridal gown and doesn’t overpower the design.

If your couture gown is a classic, well cut and fitted style, a chic veil or headpiece can bring the dress to life and highlight its elegance.

If your dress is more elaborate with intricate details and embellishments, consider a simple cathedral veil.




 5. Sophisticated Jewellery

jewellery bridal accessoriesWhen it comes to jewellery bridal accessories, you may have a special piece of jewellery gifted by your husband-to-be or a family treasured heirloom.

But don’t let your heart rule your head and over accessorise because of sentimental value.

Keep it small and unique, so the focus stays firmly on the dress.

Let the beautiful detail of your gown shine – often simple earrings are the only jewellery you’ll need. Remember you’ll have a wedding ring to show off too!


Talk to your designer
