I was so excited to meet the gorgeous, gentle-souled Nicola at our Trunk Show in Sydney. We talked about her desire for finding a wedding dress with beautiful fabrics and something unique that felt like it had been made for her in particular.
"Anastasia was just amazing and I cannot thank her enough."
We went through the collections together and with a few magic options, Nicola chose the stunning and sophisticated gown by Laure de Sagazan called FARROW.
Nicola has graciously shared her journey with Carte Blanche Bride and what she found so special about the experience. It was a joy to work with her, as I love doing with all of my beautiful brides.
The Wedding Day
"We had a spectacular day in Taralga; a bright blue sky with red and yellow autumn leaves all around. Taralga is a town near Goulburn NSW where Dylan and his family own a property. We visit Taralga whenever we can as it is only a short drive from our home in Sydney. The day went off with hardly a hitch. The cold being the biggest obstacle on the day and the ever-setting sun an issue for the photographer.
The reception was at the hatted Argyle Inn in Taralga. The decor in The Argyle Inn is just perfect and one of the many reasons we chose it for our reception. They combine old heritage pieces’ remnant of the historical town with modern twists and artwork. The food at the argyle was amazing as always with the sage gnocchi the stand out dish. The party really began following dinner with my dad, Michael, and family friend, Sandra, rocking the night away. The dancing (and singing) continued well into the wee hours of the next morning. I think we set a new record for Taralga."
"Anastasia definitely went above and beyond, from recommending seamstresses for alterations and the gown cleaning after all the fun was over."
Choosing the dress
"Anastasia at Carte Blanche Bride made choosing my wedding dress such a special experience from start to finish. The dresses are all of the highest quality European fabrics. I had not seen these designers anywhere else in Australia and was very eager to try on a particular gown. Anastasia eased my worries by assuring me I would be able to try this dress on in time for my wedding. At the trunk show me and a few of my bridesmaids were shown to a beautiful suite at the Langham Hotel in Sydney. I liked many of the gowns, they are all so unique, but the one I had pictured was definitely the one. Anastasia was just amazing and I cannot thank her enough. She definitely went above and beyond, from recommending seamstresses for alterations and the gown cleaning after all the fun was over, Anastasia didn’t miss anything."
Dylan popped the questions in New Zealand in February 2018. We hiked to the top of Roys Peak in Wanaka. A backpacker unknowingly captured the moment, she was so focused on getting a great shot of the spectacular view she didn’t initially realise what a special moment she captured.
