Meet the Team
I started Timeless Elegance Bridal in 2003. Always stating if I was to start my own business it would be a ‘one stop wedding shop’.
I am proud to have been consistent in my dream, and to have achieved perfection for so many brides. I love working with our brides from start to finish, often over a period of many months form the time they select their dream dress to the time they collect. I love seeing the excitement and anticipation on their faces.
I have been fortunate over the years to have fabulous staff, who enable us to achieve the best results for everyone, and who have supported me every step of the way.
Personally, I live in the glorious Tamar Valley, 20 minutes from the city, overlooking the gorgeous Tamar River. In my down time, I love spending time with my partner Peter. When we are not renovating, gardening or sailing, I am often found at the side of a car circuit race track, or car race somewhere, supporting Peter’s passion of motorsport.
Bridal and Fashion Stylist
I joined the team at Timeless Elegance at the end of 2020 when i returned home to Tasmania after 23 years living interstate.
I am a certified Fashion Stylist, having completed my Master of Professional Styling at ASI in Melbourne, and have been fortunate to work as a stylist in the personal, editorial and runway space. My career has seen me work with some of Australia's leading fashion retailers, styled the Myer Ambassadors for runway shows and photoshoots, completed hours of personal shopping and in store styling and coordinated fashion shows, workshops and styling events across Southern Australia.
Aside from fashion and making people feel good my greatest love is my family, spending more time with my husband, our three children and our large extended family brings me great joy and is the reason for my return to Tasmania.
To me fashion is more than just clothes it's how they make us feel and is an extension of our personality. You will find me at Timeless Elegance a couple of days a week, creating this joy and confidence for the brides of Tasmania on their special day.
I joined the Timeless Elegance team in October 2014, working in the sewing room as the junior seamstress. Having completed my Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology I was determined to get into the industry. I actually did my college work experience with Louise in 2009, at the time she asked what I wanted to do I told her I wanted to have my own bridal shop.
In December of 2016, I realised my dream and became part owner of Timeless Elegance Bridal. I work primarily on the alterations for each bride, ensuring each dress is perfectly and personally fitted.
With years of assisting brides with their dream dresses, and ensuring they have the right fit for them, I am now looking forward to my turn with my current engagement, so my fun begins in and I can try on bridal gowns for myself.
In my spare time I enjoy camping, drawing and watching movies.
Bridesmaids and Evening Wear Stylist
I have always loved fashion, so when i was offered the position for a retail assistant at Timeless Elegance i was over the moon. I love working with the girls for their leavers dinners, to select the gown, shoes and accessories.
I am even more happy now as I am starting to do more in the sewing room. I am training in the appliqué of lace and beadwork on gowns and I get a real sense of achievement to see the gowns finished, and as I continue to learn more , and work with more customers I know I have found my niche job.
I initially started working at Timeless Elegance in 2010 as an outworker, making bridal and formal gowns from home when my children were young. now my family has gown up, I enjoy working in store in the sewing room. I have over 30 years experience as a seamstress and still thoroughly enjoy my work.
I have been happily married for 30 years, raised my 3 sons and I have had the privilege of making their wives their own wedding gowns. My spare time is enjoyed with my family and grandchildren.
I acquired a love of sewing from my grandmother, a tailoress in her time, who made many clothes for us as children. When I did sewing at high school it was my dream to make my own wedding dress. Since achieving that dream, i've been blessed with a happy marriage, four children and I still love sewing and crafts. In August 2021 I was honoured to be welcomed into the team at Timeless Elegance where I have the privilege of working on the custom alterations of our amazingly beautiful wedding gowns and formal wear. Such stunning designs are beyond what I ever envisaged i would be involved with, but now I'm able to re-live my dream over again when contributing towards other peoples wedding days and special events. Home life is enjoying our rural property with my family; along with the goats, chooks, dogs, cats, fish and peaceful nature. For relaxation I love to play harp or holiday with the caravan. I'll even pack my small harp when we go camping. Finding the perfect place to play by a river, waterfall or beach gives me lots of pleasure.
