Not only does St Ives Bridal Boutique boast spacious and seriously stylish new premises – complete with parking – on the edge of the picturesque seaside town, but owner Tiffany Portman has welcomed some covetable new designers to the rails. Already home to some of the world’s most sought-after gowns from luxe Australian label Made With Love, Jesus Peiro, & For Love, Adriana Alier and The Little White Dress Edit, the boutique offers fashion-forward choice for the discerning modern bride, from minimalist silhouettes and cool-girl cuts to jaw-dropping romance.
A collection of bridal gowns from US designer Jenny Yoo is the perfect addition. From dance floor-ready little white dresses finished with dramatic puff sleeves and statement bows to sweeping ballgowns and sleek, pared-back fashions, the collection is a masterclass in contemporary bridal design. Then there’s the exquisitely crafted gowns by Hera Couture. With timeless and sophisticated being the keynotes, the New Zealand label is renowned for its stunning silhouettes, luxurious fabrics and striking detailing.
For that all-important finishing touch, a collection of veils by Rebecca Anne Designs is also now available at the boutique. Whether you choose your names, wedding date, poetry or favourite song lyrics to be embroidered onto your veil, the bespoke pieces make for the most covetable heirloom to cherish for generations to come.
And if you’re still deliberating between dresses, then make a note for the Alba & Stardust trunk show that will take place between 17th and 27th November. The designer is all about evoking modern romance through eye-catching and en vogue detailing: think ruched pearl-encrusted sheer sleeves, sensuous drapery, seductive corset bodices, demure off-the-shoulder sleeves and all-over sequins for the most glamorous and eye-catching confections.
