Back in February of last year, we teamed up with the award winning wedding dress brand Essense of Australia to make one lucky brides dress dreams come true. We shared photos of the gorgeous Essense of Australia collection to our facebook audience over 14 days and asked our followers to like the photos and tell us why they loved the gown.
The gorgeous gowns got so much love which is a testament to Essense of Australia's stunning designs! After 14 read over the many entries and chose the most heartfelt answer. We loved Ashleigh Agosta's (nee Bartolo) response from day eight of the competition. It was clear that she loved the collection and she was genuine about how she hoped to look on her wedding day! It was a nice touch to add how super proud she was of this homegrown brand!
A year later we're happy to share the gorgeous Ashleigh in her very own Essense of Australia wedding dress! She chose the chic crepe bridal gown from Essense which features delicate lace cap sleeves, lace back detailing and a scalloped lace cathedral train. She looked absolutely breathtaking...
Ashleigh always wanted to look like a classic and elegant bride. "I always knew I wanted an embellished back and the cap sleeved dress I chose had a breathtaking back and train, I honestly could not have been happier with my dress" says Ashleigh.
"I will be forever grateful that I was the lucky winner and am still shocked... I still can't believe that I was lucky enough to win my dream dress!" - Ashleigh
We couldn't be happier for the glowing bride and are glad to have played a small part in her wedding day which was equally as beautiful! Stay tuned for part two of Ashleigh's story, where we look at all the lovely little details that made her day.
