18 months before her chosen wedding date, Ellen was advised by her sister to visit a shop in town that was having a big sale. After trying on just 4 different gowns, Ellen fell in love with a dress created by Australian designer Roz La Klein. Ellen felt as if this dress had been made for her, and her alone! It was a perfect fit and sparkled every which way the bride-to-be moved. It was a wedding dress that absolutely had to be purchased on the spot! Ellen teamed her wedding dress up with a pretty pair of shoes called Lopez from the collection of Benjamin Adams.
During her wedding planning Ellen found the time to make her own wedding jewellery. She created an ivory pearl and Swarovski necklace with a matching bracelet and earrings for herself and her bridesmaids.
Ellen chose four bridesmaids to help her stay calm and collected on her big day. The girls all wore cadbury purple satin dresses that had been purchased online. Ellen altered the dresses slightly to blend in with the style and colour scheme of her wedding; the bridesmaids all loved and felt comfortable in what they were wearing.
