Meet The Team
Growing up I was always the bigger girl in the room. I had glasses and I certainly wasn’t part of the popular crowd. But I had an incredible family, an amazing Mum and there was never any doubt that I was loved. In my early teens, my mother trained as a Colour & Style Coach. As she helped women bring out their inner beauty with the right styles and colour clothing for the bodies, I would watch and learn too. This knowledge, and the confidence it built in me, is something I have carried with me ever since.
In 2017, after 10 years of being a Wedding & Event Planner and Stylist I had the opportunity to purchase Ballgowns, Bridal & Beyond. I was excited to combine two of my core beliefs – that ‘Every Body is Beautiful’ and that it is good to ‘Celebrate More & Celebrate Well’.
Dressing women for their special occasions is an absolute joy. My team and I love what we do. We are blessed to be able to work in a positive and safe space while helping women of all shapes and size to discover the ideal gown that enhances their natural beauty. Just as I found confidence, we want all our customers to feel and look confident in a stunning dress that they love.

If you visit us on a Saturday then you are most likely to be greeted by our lovely Zahra – she’ll make you feel right at home. When she’s not busy with customers she’s working away on the many little things that go into creating those magical moments when a customer’s eyes light up having fallen in love with their gown.
