Meet our Bride of the Month – August 2015


SMJess-Adam-Wedding-185Our featured bride today is Jessica, who tied the knot with her beloved in Moss Vale, NSW.

Jessica and Adam’s love story began with a flight to Bali, leading to their first date together happening overseas.  After their holiday romance blossomed they followed it with a night out in Jessica’s home town. Deciding to give their long distance relationship a go between Perth and Sydney, it took just 12 months for the couple to announce their engagement.

Jessica obviously loves flying as even though she was based in Sydney, she chose to deal directly with our Adelaide store and thought the process of “…having them create a dress that was just for me was incredible!”

Jess thought “…Nothing was too much trouble and any ideas I had or changed were done with ease. The lace work in the dress was just divine and I could not have pictured something more elegant and classic for my wedding day. None of which would have happened if it wasn’t for the team at Caleche.”

Jessica and Adam chose the beautiful leafy, flourishing property at Mali Brae Farm for both the ceremony and reception.

We agree with the couple that they “…were incredibly lucky to have such a picturesque venue”, also finding that the owners, Shelly and Greg, were extremely helpful and accommodating.

There can be so many cherished memories on a day like this, and Jess found it hard to pick one as the best. In the end it was the moment she walked down the aisle to Adam. “…I was so incredibly happy and he had tears in his eyes…When I got down there his firsts words were “I love you”…”

SMJess-Adam-Wedding-500It’s heart melting times like these that inspires us at Caleche to create more gowns for many happy moments.Congratulations Jess and Adam!

My obsession with classic couture – Tiffany Wedding Dress

Hello brides-to-be,

Tiffany_full length_wedding _dress

I have a confession to make – while I love pushing the boundaries with innovative styles and fabrics, my true obsession is with lace and classic couture. That’s why I just had to introduce you to the Tiffany Wedding Dress from our new Illumination Collection. I just adore the intricately beaded French lace bodice – the placement of which is all done by hand so it moulds perfectly to the shape of the bride.

Setting off this exquisite detailing is a soft tulle skirt that adds an incredibly feminine and romantic touch to this wedding dress. It’s deliciously French and something that I know Colette Foubert – the original Ms Calèche – would have approved of.

Colette sailed to Australia from the fashion capital of Paris with her husband Olivier and their four children in 1973. Making their way to Adelaide, Colette started Calèche with one machinist, patterns and fabric spread across the floor. Together with Olivier, she travelled the country visiting every township that had a drapery or fashion store.

Five years on the Calèche range was being promoted in every capital city and regional centre in Australia. To this day our family make all of our hand-crafted gowns in our Norwood showroom, continuing the tradition that Colette started so long ago.

Perhaps that’s why I can’t go past a wedding dress with simple styling and a whole lot of lace – it’s in my blood!

If you’re feeling the love for Tiffany, be sure to pop in for a viewing and to discuss options to make the dress truly your own, such as lace straps, an illusion neckline with lace trailing over the shoulders, a lower backline with nude tulle … the options are endless.
