We are so thrilled and absolutely honoured to announce that Begitta has been awarded the great honour of being made Bridal Gown Couture Designer of the Year at the Queensland’s Weddings and Events of Australia Awards.
Weddings and Events of Australia is focused on recognising, supporting and educating elite brands in the Australian Wedding market. The night was all about recognising those wedding suppliers who go above and beyond to meet their client’s requests.
The awards are judged by a board of elite wedding professionals including Victoria Black, the founder of Wildfire Publishing, Australia’s Number One in Bridal Media. Wendy Daoud El-Khoury, Founder of Wedded Wonderland and famed Steven Khalil, recognised as one of Australia’s leading couture designers.
Weddings and Events of Australia ‘Awards for Excellence’ took place Sunday the 20th July at the stunning Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa. The wedding industries elite came together from across Queensland to celebrate the industry they all put so much effort into.
The stunning red carpet event was hosted by Rachael Bentick and Channel 10’s Ron Wilson who presented the awards for the evening.
We cannot thank the wonderful team at WEOA enough! As well as the incredible panel of judges for their amazing support, we are truly flattered and appreciative of such an incredible honour.
We would also love to thank the amazing Ciara Hodge and Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants who attended the awards evening and represented our label. Such an incredible couple and wonderful at what they do!
We are so excited and tres flattered to have been featured on the wonderful Polka Dot Bride once again!

Our darling photographer Amy tells Ms Polka “For this shoot, we wanted to create an atmosphere where vintage meets romance. Our team used shades of apricot and peach for a soft, airy look to the décor"
We spent a little while deliberating on which gown would suit this gorgeous theme, we wanted something a little bit modern with a touch of traditional so we went with our darling "Fleur" lace top and a sumptuous full skirt of tulle. The perfect ensemble for a classic garden wedding. Lace is such a beautiful touch to any wedding as it is always timeless and forever loved by guests. We adore the Fleur bodice with its subtle hints of lace, a fashion-forward high-neck front and delicate low back its perfect amount of sheer and covered with a stunning hand beaded lace at the neck that adds a touch of depth. We wanted to add a touch of sparkle and a little more glam so we went with the divine hand-beaded "Lumière" headpiece with lace appliqué to tie in with the stunning gown. Each of these headpieces take a minimum of 10 hours to produce, hand-made and beaded right here in Brisbane, Australia with stunning pre-designed or custom-designs available. For more headpieces have a peek at our E-Boutique or email email@example.com for a custom design quote.

We were absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful Geoff Francis once again to shoot this exquisite styled bridal shoot with the lovely and talented Sally of SALLYR Makeup and the incredibly skilled Aleesha of A Fashionable Hair Life as well as our three gorgeous girls Cassandra, Jesse and Brooke. The location was the absolutely divine a stunning vineyard - Sarabah Estate. A little delight tucked away behind the hills of Canungra that just brings to life the most exquisite of fairytale wedding scenes. From the Chalet to the Manor and the stunning vines themselves we were spoiled for choice of stunning scenery.
