Real Bride: Aileen

Our stunning bride Aileen summed up perfection in the Marianna satin gown customized with a delicate French lace bolero to give her an elegant long-sleeved bridal look for her winter wedding.

This West Coast wedding in the rural setting of GG’s Yard near Dumfries, gave Stewart & Aileen the dreamiest of countryside views, and their romantic venue was finished off with refined Scottish decor and Traditional tartans. Talking of tartans, we need to compliment the Groom for looking just as fab as the bride in his full kilt outfit.

We couldn’t have been prouder of Aileen in her gown, and we LOVE how she accessorized her bridal look. We enjoy nothing more than helping to style our brides  at our Edinburgh boutique, and bring together different pieces to give their wedding dress that extra oomph! Aileen did not disappoint, picking out the perfect combination of a crystal encrusted belt and hair piece to add some sparkle to her classic style. The bride’s showstopper however, was her extra long veil decorated with hand-sewn lace appliques, created by the La Novia designers. A cathedral veil is one way to add drama to your entrance, and we’re sure Aileen’s guests were wowed as she walked down the aisle.

Thank you so much to Aileen and Stewart for sharing your photos with us, SimonsStudio ( did such a wonderful job capturing the moments of your day. Congratulations from all of us at La Novia, we wish you all the best.
