Haute Couture Wedding Dresses New Zealand - Novia Brides - Yolan Cris

Welcome to Novia Brides!

We are very excited to be exclusive New Zealand stockists of the breathtaking Yolan Cris  designer wedding gowns as well as exclusive stockists for Central Otago of Katie Yeungs Daisy and Hera Couture collections.

Our 90 minute, celebratory, consultations are by appointment only, allowing us to focus all of our attention on you, helping you to find a style  from our large range of designer and Couture Wedding gowns that reflects the very essence of who you are, making you feel and look amazing not to mention having your soul mates’ eyes goggle and their jaw hit the floor as you walk up the aisle, over the beach or across the paddock!

You are, of course,  very welcome to bring two or three close friends or family members to help you celebrate this special ritual. Remember that this time is all about you, we encourage you to invite those who are closest to you, who you treasure the most and in whose company you feel the most relaxed. We charge a consultation fee and provide you and your party with Quartz Reef Bubbles!

In the unlikely event that you don’t fall in love with one of our dresses we want you to have had a wonderful experience here at Novia and leave feeling pampered, with a clearer image of the dress that you will wear to mark the ‘beginning of the rest of your life’.

You will find Novia in the peaceful and beautiful, rural setting of Hawea Flat. Fifteen minutes drive from Wanaka, Hawea Flat is known as place where people looking for an alternative life style head. As such it reflects wonderfully the uniqueness of Yolancris and Katie Yeungs Beautiful, Romantic Wedding Dresses. We hope you enjoy the spectacular drive out here as much as your time with us.


For our newly engaged brides to be, who live a little further away but who are in love with Yolancris gowns, there are direct flights from Aukland, Wellington, Christchurch, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to Queenstown, which is a stunning mountainous 90 minute drive from Novia.

For those of you who have not visited our region before we strongly suggest that you combine your visit here with a romantic weekend with your beloved, maybe your hens weekend or a special time with you and your family!
