Real Bride Stories: Eliane & Nathaniel, Hawkstone Hall and Gardens

Luna Novias Wedding Dress real bride

How Real Bride Eliane found her dream dress at The Boutique & Co and all the details from her wedding day!

One of the biggest perks from working with brides, is hearing back from them about their wedding day, how much they loved their dress and seeing all the photos from their celebration! We absolutely love when our real brides tell us stories and details from their special day. So we thought we would share them here as well and spread the love!

Eliane got married in May of this year, and visited us at The Boutique & Co the previous year in September. She fell for the gorgeous ‘Valet’ wedding dress by Luna Novias, a sensual sheath-style dress in crepe. This stunning fit and flare design features a V-neckline, beaded lace bodice and train edged with lace – she is a very popular favourite amongst our brides!

We asked Eliane some questions, so she could reveal all the details from her wedding day and how she chose her Luna Novias wedding dress!
