From the moment you say hello to I do; we love being a part of your journey.
Let’s take a look at one of our first 2022 weddings & our beautiful bride!

How did you meet your fiancé?
Matt and I met at work! We were both school teachers at the time and it was a bit of a secret romance! All the students were onto it though!
How did your partner propose?
Matt organised a trip to Lorne for my birthday - although without thinking he booked a whole month early! We went anyway and he proposed on the beach where we had our first photo together.
How did you pick your gown?
After searching all the bridal shops across Melbourne for multiple weekends for the perfect gown, I found it at Nifi. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in terms of style and shape and it was honestly just perfect. I knew straight away when I put it on, it was the one!
Can you tell us about your experience in store?
The girls at Nifi were so wonderful and made such of fuss of me! It was so fun being in the store! Everyone loved the dress and all said how ‘me’ it was!
How did you plan your day?
After having to postpone for a whole year, which was super disappointing at the time, we felt pretty relaxed and comfortable when our new date came around! In terms of planning, we booked our venue really early and then followed with all our main suppliers. We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted and then we asked for recommendations from the venue and other suppliers we had already booked. Instagram makes it so easy to find people as well but you do waste many hours in doing so! It’s really good to ask for examples of their work too so you have an idea of what to expect.
Advice for future brides?
My advice for future brides is to just enjoy the day! Don’t stress about stuff that you can’t control. Your day will be perfect no matter what. Also, the day goes so quickly - like too quick - make sure you take 10 minutes with your partner to just take in all your loved ones in the same room having the best time and being there for you!
