On Friday 9 October 2015 we attended at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre to participate in the Queensland Brides Design Awards. This year we entered 5 gowns and completed against 40 gowns created by other Queensland Designers.
We were privileged that our Real Bride Teneille popped her custom bridal gown and headpiece on and walked the runway for us in the Couture Category.
Our Mackay Model Ashley flew in an hour and half prior to the judging was to begin and both Ashley's and Teneille's Make up and Hair looks were created by Velbella. Our Third model was the gorgeous Katy who is a freelance model in Brisbane. Her hair and make up look was created by Jwu Studio.
Marynicky Designs situated in Mackay created the Bespoke Gold Crown worn by Ashley with our Avant Garde entry "Astala" which received a "Highly Commended Award".
Maryanne from Marynicky Designs also created Teneille's Red Bouquet and Ebony from Mackay Wedding Flowers created the bright boquet carried by Katy.
Its a HUGE lead up every year to organise and create gowns, accessories, book models and work out their hair and makeup looks.
