Welcome to special! I started Carte Blanche Bride because I wanted to break the traditional model that bridal shopping is built on in Australia. Too many out-of-date options, too many sour-faced sales assistants and too many stressed out Brides who were left wondering where their wedding joy had gone. My career spans over 13 years in luxury fashion and weddings.
I launched Carte Blanche Bride from my love of love (any and ALL kinds of love), my adoration of all things French and my obsession with customer experience (yes, I definitely have a hang up!). I have rolled all this into a beautiful gift for my brides – the gift of a one-of-a-kind journey and a seriously stunning wedding gown at an accessible price point.
A recent bride compared her CB experience to her fiancé having his suit tailor-made (like P. Johnson Tailors for example). Not only do you have access to beautifully made, world class, French designs, but you get the guidance of ME every step of the way. Every bride has the entire range to themselves at their appointment, no sharing the mirror OR the showroom, plus your support crew enjoy a glass of Champagne while they wait for you to try on.
The phrase ‘Carte Blanche’ is one of my favourite French sayings and translates to ‘blank canvas’ – every client that walks through my doors is a beautiful canvas and together we get to create magic for one of the most memorable and loved-up days of celebration in your life. Can’t wait to meet you.
