Elegant Beauty for every bride – Elizabeth Rose Couture Designs

4

When we saw these gowns from Elizabeth Rose Couture, we fell in love with their timeless elegance and beauty. Every piece in this collection helps you to feel beautiful, completely comfortable and totally you on your wedding day! Captured by Samuel Jacob Photography, we’re drooling over these forest vibes. We wanted to sit down with the designer Rose and hear her heart over her designs!

What inspires you?

Beauty. That in itself is a vast array of inspiration; for beauty comes in countless shapes, colours and sizes. That is what I want to capture. Each gown I create is unique; no one is like the other.  My goal in designing and creating couture gowns is to reflect the character of the bride.  Each is an original masterpiece; elegance in the form of you.

What is something you would say to someone starting out in the industry? 

Surround yourself with people who will encourage, challenge and inspire you.

If you don’t know something, ask someone.

(eg. sewing lace, tulle and silks, I’m all over it! But regards to running and developing a business? That is an area I seek the assistance of others)

Don’t look sideways in comparison; give the world YOUR best!

What do you love about your job?

The people I get to meet from all different walks of life and being a small part of their “Happily ever after”

What was your inspiration for the business?

A dear friend of mine Linda Trigg, a skilful couturier who worked in the industry for over 20 years, she taught me this skill. At the age of fourteen I began working under her tutelage. She freely gave me her time, knowledge and friendship. I am forever grateful for what she has invested in me!

How did you go about starting up? 

I began by creating period costumes; corsets, ball gowns and all things fairy tale inspired (I was an extremely imaginative fourteen year old). This developed a desire in me to pursue a career in costume design for film. But dreams shift and change.

Working under Lin (Gracelynn Bridal) I grew in skill & confidence. Watching the journey unfold, from when a bride arrives for her first fitting, the countless hours behind the scenes of meticulously sculpting the creation, to the day she stands in awe wearing her fairy tale dream dress, is so rewarding. This inspired me to begin my own independent business, taking woman’s dreams and fashioning them into reality. Humble beginnings mending and making alterations, to formal gowns and now a blossoming bridal business. Elizabeth Rose Couture was birthed!

What are you offering that is different from the rest? 

A fresh twist on ‘bridal shopping’, a relationship with the customer, a personalized journey and the bride comes along each step of the way. I am not sending out designs to be whipped up in factories overseas. I work closely with each client to form what they are envisioning, tailoring perfectly to their taste and body shape.

What does marriage mean to you?

A wonderful journey
