As a bride, one of the hardest things to tick off that check list is usually the Wedding Dress! There are so many different styles to choose from, it can be quite over whelming when you flip through the bridal magazines and every girl looks picture perfect. I always recommend that brides try on dresses before setting your heart on a specific look. This way, you can get a good idea for what suits your body type and build on from there. We chatted to Wendy from Coral Island Imported Wedding Gowns

Tell us a bit about Coral Island and how it all started?
I was in wedding planning & decor & wanted my own business & a friend showed me her imported wedding gowns business.

Why Wedding Dresses?
It seemed a natural transition to working from home still doing what I love by appointment, it works well for me.

What is your absolute favourite style of dress?
I’d have to say a Boho low cut full lace gown in ivory! You can’t go wrong!

How does a bridal consultation work?
I don’t charge for consultations as I cater for everyone, all budgets & styles. By appointment only as my Showroom is at my home. My brides & their entourage relax & enjoy their time at Coral Island.

Any advice for future brides out there?
My advice would be to go with your gut, along with my professional assistance. In 30 years you want to look at your wedding photos & still love them so much years later!

Ang started her photography journey in 2012 when she was handed a camera to take some social snaps at a function and was hooked from then! Photography was something that had been in her life from a young age, with her great aunt being a member of the PSSA. Ang spent a few months with her aunt where she developed her skills and practiced photography as a hobby. After gaining some confidence she decided that this was definitely a path she wanted to take as a career and started investing in her camera gear and short courses whenever she could. In 2014 she took a leap of faith and photographed her first wedding and has never looked back since. Her photography business has slowly started to gain momentum and everything she does, she does with love.
