Atocha Wedding Dress from YOLANCRIS. From Wanaka wedding dress studio Novia Brides

Helena & Tim’s Wanaka Wedding

Photographer Madeline Druce shot this stunning wedding for newly weds Helena & Tim.

High school sweethearts, they fell in love at 15 years old, and in late 2018 were married in Wanaka. Helena chose the Atocha wedding dress from YOLANCRIS and wore it so beautifully. Congratulations!

Sandy & Sue. Where to begin?! You two made the whole process of wedding dress shopping so incredibly special for me & my Mum. It was such a stress-free experience. We felt like royalty in the shop surrounded by such exceptional quality, beauty and craftsmanship. Yolan Cris is genius. Crazy that the first wedding dress I ever tried on was ‘the one’. We made a pact that the dress would be a secret held by the 4 of us until the wedding ceremony (11 months later), which made it’s reveal so exciting. I vividly remember Sandy saying to me, “you need to feel like yourself in this dress. It’s a reflection of who your fiance fell in love with and it needs to be 100% you”. And that’s exactly what my dress was. I had so much feedback on the dress, most of which along the lines of: “Most amazing wedding dress I have ever seen” or “So different, but so you!”. Couldn’t recommend Sandy, Sue & Novia Brides more. Such a beautiful experience that my Mum & I will share forever. Thank you for the most amazing experience <3 xxx H&H
