We love getting new gowns in & these brand new Essense of Australia styles have really got us giddy this time round! They're just so pretty yet well-made and the fit (we've tried a couple on...!) is so uniquely flattering. We're in love with all things boho right now too and their styles totally fit that theme! Floaty & pretty!

Right, we're going to dial down the love-fest for Essense of Australia now and share with you a little bit about the brand, along with a few of our top styles we think should be on your wish list!

A Little Bit About Essense of Australia

The Essense of Australia hallmark is their amazing fit and couture-like finishing, their gowns have been created with an attention to detail rarely seen in other designer bridal brands. Founded over 20 years ago, Essense of Australia is the love-child of Wayne and Martine Harris. They created the brand together using Wayne's skills in business and Martine's enviable talent for bridal design and aesthetics. Their Australian love story has blossomed into a business that now has offices across the world and over 1,200 retailers stocking their designs. 'Our growth has truly been an organic journey, which makes it even more humbling when we take a moment to stop and think about that tiny living room in Perth, Australia, where it all began.' Martine Harris speaking to Bridal Times.

Influenced by the fashion houses of Europe and the fashion centre of New York, every Essense of Australia wedding dress is painstakingly imagined and created by their talented and highly experienced Australian design team. At the heart of each signature Essense gown is its luxurious fabric and exquisite beading.

They offer a diverse compilation of elegantly crafted designer wedding dresses ranging from glamorous, draped Angel Satin to alluring laces and Satin Chiffon. The use of authentic Swarovski crystals and diamantés adds the perfect touch of shimmering, head-turning sparkle. Plus, with innovative couture finishing options such as a lace or zip-up back, you can customize your gown to best reflect your own sophistication and unique style.
