Website Design – Novia Brides

Client: Novia Brides, Hawea, Central Otago

Brief: To create a website for a new bridal studio located near Wanaka, in the tranquil rural settlement of Hawea.

Sandy at Novia Brides was a recent bride herself, and during her wedding dress research she came across the stunning YolanCris wedding dresses made in Barcelona. Haute couture, unique and exceptionally well-made, Sandy saw a gap in the New Zealand wedding market and set about establishing a bridal studio to showcase the wedding gowns. She also expanded her range to include dresses from Auckland wedding dress designer Katie Yueng.

The dresses from YolanCris are made-to-order for each bride in Barcelona, so she has a selection of sample gowns in her studio, then the dress is created in Spain, and Novia Brides seamstress Sue will make any final alterations when the dress arrives.

The website needed to be clean and simple to showcase the imagery of the dresses. We created a base of an ecommerce site, so that we could easily draw on those features in the future if needed, but created a plugin to change the add to cart functionality to an enquire now button – as at this stage, all transactions are made in person after a dress decision has been made.

The logo was also created by us, and so we took the design cues from that – simple black and white with grey – then colour introduced through the imagery through the website.

Novia Brides in the exclusive stockist for YolanCris in Australia and New Zealand. If you would like to schedule an appointment to try on their wedding dresses, you can contact Sandy through the website. Sandy welcomes brides from all over New Zealand and Australia. They also stock a range of shoes and veils, made to order.


Michelle and Nathan were fantastic to deal with, quick, efficient and very thorough. Michelle is very professional and I am very impressed, not to mention, immensely grateful for her follow up monitoring my progress and satisfaction with the product, following social media and emailing me with suggestions. Top notch service, highly recommended
