Intique & Co. Bridal Stylists and Wedding Designers – and Australia’s Only Stockist of Claire Pettibone

Today I am super excited to be able to share with you the launch of the first boutique in Australia to stock some of the beautiful Claire Pettibone wedding dresses – so excited in fact that I just couldn’t wait until Monday. Determined Australian and New Zealand brides have long had to make either the arduous flight to America or the risky decision of buying before trying to get their hands on a CP gown, but not any more!!!

Intique & Co. is Melbourne’s first definitive one destination bridal boutique, full of beautiful dresses shoes and accessories; and providing a complete wedding design & styling service that is fresh and captivating (that’s right, they do everything from frocks to flowers!)

The grand unveiling of the Intique and Co. boutique, and all of its precious goodies, was held a few weeks ago during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The lucky guests enjoyed sipping a glass of bubbles whilst wondering amongst the gorgeous bridal collections and accessories, surrounded by beautiful spring blooms and styling by the creative Intique & Co team at their brand new Headquarters in Bay street Brighton, VIC.

The fabulous Natalie of Intique & Co. said “It was a lovely night attended by close family and friends, who have been a wonderful support over the past few years whilst I set up Intique and Co., along with some talented creatives from the wedding industry; including the ladies from Real Weddings Magazine, Ebony Cameron from French Lace Studio  and the very talented Katie & Sarah from Love Katie & Sarah – who were there to capture it all on film!”

“Our lovely model Nicole showed off our accessories and the exquisite collections from Monique Lhuillier, Badgley Mischka Shoes and the gorgeous gowns from Claire Pettibone – we are so lucky to be the only Bridal boutique in Australia with her amazing dresses!”

Almost as lovely as the content inside Intique & Co. is their boutique itself – a beautiful old 1860s building, which has been lovingly restored and bought back to life! She (a building this pretty must be a she) even has a pretty court yard where clients can sit with the team in the sun sipping coffee and discussing styling options for their wedding!

And, some exciting news…. the Intique & Co. team have been busy bees developing a label called “Lukah” that will consist of a ready to wear collection (available online and in boutiques around Australia)  and a Bridal/Evening range that will be available at Intique & Co. – both will be launching early next year! I can’t wait to see them!

I think I will have to start saving for a trip…..
