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.”

Claire got her wish of looking and feeling fabulous while she said ‘I do’ surrounded by family and friends.

It was a pleasure to be part of bringing her design vision to life.

 

Real life Perth brides love story: Joanne and Matthew

 Married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, with their reception at Fraser’s Restaurant, State Reception Centre

 

Introduced by Joanne’s cousin, years previously. It wasn’t until Joanne gave Matthew a lift in 2010 that they finally became a couple. Joanne’s cousin Maria was so proud to be asked to be Maid of Honour to her cousin Jo and her old school friend Matt!

 

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.

There was a particular moment Jo remembers at the very end of the night;

“Matt and I were on our own for the very first time all day. We were reflecting on what a wonderful day it was. We were so overwhelmed from all the love and support from our friends and family we were speechless”

We’re so proud to play a part by creating a bespoke wedding dress which was the centerpiece of an elegant wedding and left their family and friends speechless.

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.

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.
