Miss Universe Australia's Wedding

International model and a former Miss Universe Australia (2000), Samantha Frost has appeared in many bridal magazines in both Australia and overseas.

We wondered how a bride to be with so much fabulous exposure to such amazing designers would choose a wedding dress. Well, according to Samantha, choosing Australian wedding dress designer Lisa Gowing, was a no brainer.

Going for an effortlessly chic look Samantha wanted a dress that was timeless and beautiful. Working closely with Lisa, they combined two of the designer’s most exquisite styles to design something unique that would become, in Samantha’s words, the "perfect wedding dress".

"For our wedding, we wanted something that reflected our eclectic and carefree personalities. We had a barefoot Australian wedding in Bali with a French twist (at a French Villa). We had to ensure a patriotic touch, so we wore all Australian designers. While we wanted a beautiful wedding, at the heart of our big day we wanted it to be all about fun. We had an adorable and funny reading 'advice on love and marriage' by our guest’s children under 10 year olds. There were also cute bridal scarecrows, sky lanterns and fireworks."

Love this platform very user friendly and connects buyers and sellers who are wanting the next Bride to enjoy their wedding in a dress they might not been able to afford otherwise. I’ve been a seller selling my daughters dress for a wedding that didn’t happen (thank goodness) to buying my first wedding dress which is why I have this email to rate ……and will be selling my daughters wedding dress soon from her wedding!
