Platinum Bridal Boutique

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Whangarei

We wanted to convey a warm and inviting atmosphere with an opulent twist, to make our boutique stand out from the crowd.

When we started out with this project we were fearful that we would not be able to find just the right colours to fit what we had in mind.

We wanted to convey a warm and inviting atmosphere with an opulent twist, to make our boutique stand out from the crowd. It didn't make sense to us to have a sterile, bland, white on white colour scheme that most other bridal stores seem to favour. We were very pleased with how well the colours tie in with the wallpaper we chose.

It is a very special occasion, picking your wedding gown, and we wanted to extend the fairytale feeling, that all brides should experience, by starting it off the minute they walk through the door. The colour scheme promotes our personalised approach and superior customer service.

We have received so many comments and not only from brides but people who were just passing by and felt compelled to come in and tell us how great the shop looks.

It is great to come to work every day, enjoy the space and be part of the fairytale.
