Passion is Energy

“It is a dream and honour to spearhead the creation of a luxurious Bridal Studio while offering some of the world’s most renowned bridal brands to the brides of Africa. I have been privileged to be a part of the bridal industry for ten years, to travel the world, meeting some of the greatest designers, and being a part of the Pronovias team in Spain for almost eight years. 

I love brides, I adore bridal couture, and I treasure being a part of any bride’s wedding journey. Veil Bridal Couture is my passion, we strive to give brides the best experience while ensuring that we offer a product that is diverse, fashion-forward, and trendy. 

I firmly believe that I am only as strong as my weakest player. At Veil Bridal Couture, we are all about empowering women to become who they were created to be. Veil Bridal Couture is a place of love, mutual respect, and empowerment.”

“Be open to- and have fun with different styles. Most brides arrive with an idea of what they would like and are surprised when they try something a little different.
Most importantly, listen to your heart – you will know and feel when it’s the one!”

Senior Bridal Consultant – Cape Town

“Be open minded during the consultation, if you aren’t sure about a certain silhouette or look, try it on! Sometimes a certain design or style will surprise you. Listen to your heart as you will know the difference between just a pretty dress and YOUR wedding dress. Say yes to the one that you are the most excited about and feel the most confident in. Most of all, have fun! This is a very exciting time, make as many memories as you can along the way.”

“Your wedding dress should be YOUR decision, it is one of the few variables you can fully control on your wedding day. Opinions from your loved ones are important but shouldn’t be the deciding factor – be confident in what YOU love.

Don’t underestimate the importance of quality – good structure, fit and fabric is everything.”
