ROWENA AND DAVE: Real bride Rowena wears Elysee Etoile Andromeda wedding dress

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

How did you two meet?

We originally met years ago through neighbours when we were in previous marriages. We were then re-introduced by friends/neighbours 6 1/2 years ago - 13 years later!!

What about the proposal, how did it go?

The proposal was last May (almost a year to the date of the wedding) in the Maldives on the decking of a water villa. I was gobsmacked as I thought he would never get married again!

What was your wedding style/inspo?

The wedding was inspired from our holiday to southern Spain last summer when we saw the Sunborn yacht from the marina in Gibraltar and changed our plans to marry in Cyprus after seeing it. The theme was then a little more boat themed and less beach wedding style.

Tell us about your dress!

My Elysee Etoile Andromeda wedding dress fitted like a glove! Structured mermaid style with strapless top and I had a piece made to go around the shoulders which could be removed later. The name was Andromeda! I love that my long gold glittery veil and pearl tiara made the final look.

What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

The best part of the day was watching the sun go down over the ocean from the front deck of the boat with our singer guitarist playing our favourite songs, with drinks and cake. My dad walking me down the aisle despite his Alzheimer’s condition was the icing on the cake!

Any changes? (Things you wish you’d done or wish you hadn’t!)

We wouldn’t change a thing!

List your fave suppliers

Our favourite suppliers were the fabulous dress makers from Elizabeth Kate Bridal who were so patient and created the perfect addition to my dress and the guitarist.

We are very grateful to have got so many friends and family over there to share the day X
