Red lipstick aside, I firmly believe that less is more in terms of make-up.
New Zealand is such a down-to-earth place.
My grandmother, Amalia Pia Emilia Vignola, whom I called Nonna, brought out the fairy tale in everything. She used to tuck me into bed so vigorously that I never felt anything less than comforted, and then afterwards, she would sit on a cane basket box next to my bed and read Hans Christian Andersen to me.

I want to offer a wide range of classic and contemporary bridalwear to suit all personalities, readily available to try on.
I strongly believe that many of the best decisions are made on gut instinct.
