The Oxfam Wedding Auction with Ian Stuart

With a successful career spanning over two decades, numerous awards to his name, and clients from across the globe, Ian Stuart is regarded as one of the top bridal wear designers in the world. When Ian was asked to be involved in the Oxfam Wedding project, he jumped at the chance to use his expert skills to support the work of this amazing charity, and offer a priceless experience to one generous bride. He has kindly given one lucky winning bidder the chance to choose their very own dress from the Killer Queen collection as well as have a (money cannot buy) bridal consultation with the designer himself!

Usually reserved for his ‘V.I.P clients’ the winning bidder will have her own private consultation with Ian to choose her wedding dress at his London studio. The bride can use Ian’s talent and expertise to find her perfect gown, as well styling advice and tips for the big day. A truly unique opportunity for fans of the designer while donating to a really great cause.

So get involved with The Oxfam Wedding Auction, become a bidder and you could be wearing your very own Ian Stuart design down the aisle!

Eco wedding dress

At La Novia we support Sustainability and as we look to the future more and more people are adopting ‘greener’ lives and in turn, they want their weddings to reflect this.

At La Novia we make all our dresses on site in our dressmaking studio – none of our dresses are shipped, flown or put in the back of a lorry, our dresses haven’t gained any air miles and we like to think of them as being Carbon Neutral.

Though our couture dresses come in a variety of silks we can source vegan/vegetarian man-made fabrics which will look just as sumptuous but will keep your conscience clear. We can also source a variety of organic fabrics and we are always open to suggestions should you require any other specific needs.

Our Liliana Dabic Couture range is all made to measure and Liliana is more than happy to see you for a consultation to discuss ‘Going Green’.

Lacey Ladies

Lace is that wonderful timeless fabric which gives a wedding dress understated style and sophistication. Lace has been huge on the Catwalk for 2012 and bridal couture has not been too far behind embracing the current romance with lace.

At La Novia we have always been huge fans of lace and many of our couture dresses are made with matching off the shoulder lace boleros which can be kept on or taken off during your reception or before dancing.

Our Popular dress, Paris, is a stunning lace dress with a dropped back and detachable lace train with a stunning vintage broach. Fiona is another La Novia Couture Lace dress which exudes understated glamour. Fiona is strapless but comes with a matching off the shoulder bolero.

Come to the store and try on some lovely lace gowns for yourself!

Beautiful Blooms

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without some beautiful blooms. Whatever season you tie the knot and whatever your culture, nationality or religion, fabulous flowers are inevitable on any wedding day.

You might fancy a bouquet that matches the bridesmaids dresses or subtly picks out the colour of the grooms tie or you might want to just go all out and have the church brimming with wild flowers of all shapes and sizes!

At La Novia we can help you match the colour of your button holes to the bridesmaids fur wraps or match your bouquet to a flower girls sash. We can also make you a beautiful headpiece with any number of stunning silk flowers to finish off a crisp white dress.

Show stopping shoes

At La Novia we not only meet all your highest expectations when it comes to buying the perfect dress but we also like to dress your tootsies to perfection too.

We have a huge variety of stunning shoes in store in a variety of sizes. From sparkling platform heels to beautifully embroidered lace kitten heels (and everything in between) we will have the perfect style and fit to get you up the isle and keep you dancing all night.

Pop in to our store on Queen street and have a look at some of our fabulously comfortable designs. We usually have a number of pairs on sale too, so you never know you might grab a bargain!

We also offer you 20% off shoes when you buy a new wedding dress from our store!

Escape to the sun

The days are dark and chilly and all we can think about is a nice warm hot holiday! If you fancy having your nuptials in sunnier climbs but want the perfect dress to keep you chilled out and stunning throughout, head to La Novia on Queen Street.

Many of our brides request dresses that will travel well, before they jet off to paradise to get married! At La Novia we can make you up a couture dress which will happily be packed to perfection and made from lightweight material to keep you cool in the hottest of weather. Most of our dresses are silk but as we all know man made fabrics are a lot cooler – no problemo! All our dress designs can be made up in man made fabrics and a number of the designers we stock have designs in man made fabrics too. We even stock Ella dresses, an Australian designer perfect for hot beach weddings with beautiful floaty trains and sparkly diamante’s!
