Her obsession for fit and garment construction ensures every bride walks down the aisle in a dress that perfectly compliments their shape and style.

The expertly curated dress selection showcases exclusive pieces from some of the most covetable names in fashion, including Viktor & Rolf Mariage, Alex Perry, Toni Maticevski, Vivienne Westwood, Newhite and Kyha Studios.

To Have & To Hold
The wedding landscape has drastically changed due to the ever-changing restrictions imposed by the ongoing pandemic. For one, big celebrations have been swapped out for more intimate affairs, which calls for more understated, contemporary designs, stepping away from the big traditional wedding gown. With this in mind, To Have & To Hold (TH&TH) has launched a new ready-to-wear bridal collection featuring timeless ivory gowns suited for smaller and more modest occasions, coming in a wide range of sizes. We adore the Bardot 2.0 which has a multiway, adjustable strap that can be worn as a spaghetti strap, cold shoulder or strapless. A few of the designs are already selling out so we recommend hitting “buy now” on that dress you’re eyeing up ASAP!
