Gold Coast Weddings Magazine Winter 2014

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped towards creating such wonderful images for our ad in this issue.  It was a long day with a 9am start at Suzi Dent’s for hair and makeup, but models Mandy, Nikki, Shannon, Brittany and Ellise were excited for what awaited.  With Casey-Jane Photography shooting later into the afternoon, to avoid the bright mid afternoon sunlight at Mount Tamborine, we had limited light left, but still created some wonderful images, which were topped off with bouquets from Elyssium Blooms.



QLD Brides Magazine Autumn 2014

A special thank you to Shannon, who is pictured below on her wedding day.  You are such a wonderful person with such a big heart and a passion for life.  I loved all the time we spent together during your fittings, but then having you model for me twice was an added pleasure.  xx

And here is the Gown “Daisy” from the QLD Brides Design Awards 2013, which unfortunately didn’t win with the judges in my favourite section Avant-Garde, but has been a favourite amongst the brides to be. 


Some of our gowns are featured in Gold Coast Wedding Magazine Spring Edition – Gowns through the ages, with the first two brides (1990-1999 & 2000-2009) being our actual brides on their wedding day….


Gold Coast Wedding Magazine, Spring 2013 edition is out now and we feel privileged to have graced the front cover yet again with one of our gowns.  Catherine Cameron, our model on the front cover, also felt special, being able to wear her bridal gown again, only a few months after her wedding.  Not many girls get to wear their gown twice!

At Helena Couture Designs, we always seem to be ahead of fashion here in Australia, because while the vintage and Great Gatsby influenced is still strong, we were creating this look several years ago.  Here is Mrs Tatiana Forrester wearing a timeless Helena Couture Designs bridal gown, feather hair piece and jewellery, designed for her small frame for her wedding back in 2011

It was a long day, creating three very different themed weddings, but what a very successful day.  One of the photos from our final themed wedding “Enchanted Garden” has more recently been shown in QLD Brides Magazine, page 192.  Prior to QLD Brides Magazine it was shown on facebook, where it has been share many times over, making its way around the world, giving many brides ideas for their special day.
