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
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.
Once 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.
