Rosalie & Troy
15 May 2021.
Rosalie wears the 1.1A Natural Gown, 3.11B Cross Over Blouse & 3.15 Organza Skirt.
" I always envisioned wearing a white slip, however felt I needed something more to walk down the aisle in the Cathedral. So, Harriette created the dress of my dreams x 3! I wanted to feel light and be able to run around, therefore we decided to have just one light and sheer layer with a big 2m train. The slip on the other hand needed to feel snug and make me look a million dollars. And the blouse was designed to be worn for many years ahead - I’ve already styled it with jeans and heels for a night out. "
Tell us a little about yourself, what do you do for work?
What do you do for fun?
I am a business owner. My sister and I started “Organisée” over a year ago and we have passionately been organising homes (and lives) ever since. For fun I organise my own home (no joke!), yoga or walk around the neighbourhood.
A little about your partner:
What do they do for work and fun?
Troy works for NightOwl Entertainment and just launched Australia’s first Flight Club on Murray Street Perth. For fun, it’s either playing golf, watching golf or thinking about golf.
What initially attracted you to your partner?
His amazing gecko tattoo on his right shoulder swept me off my feet - NOT!!! Haha. It was our love for cooking - we were partnered up in a friends version of "My Kitchen Rules”. We came second, but really won as we ended up together. And that was 9 years ago now... time flies when you’re having fun!
Can you describe a memorable moment from your day?
Getting Maria Caruso to chop my hair off before entering the reception in my second outfit! I spent this precious 30 minutes with our bridal party, sipping on espresso martinis uninterrupted. My intention was to have a short bob to accommodate my dress after I took off my organza blouse, in particular to show off the low cut slip dress, and walk down the aisle with a beautiful slick back pony tail prior.
How did you discover Harriette Gordon?
I discovered Harriette through word-of-mouth. What drew me to choose my pieces was Harriette Gordon herself. After my first appointment we just clicked. I was absolutely enthralled by her calm, beautiful and creative nature - I remember walking out thinking I have no idea which piece I’m going to choose but she’s the one that’s going to make it happen.
What was the most special song played on your wedding day?
La Vie En Rose by Edith Piaf it was a subtle touch of my French background at a wedding predominately influenced by my husbands Italian background.
Was there a particular theme or style that you wanted to encapsulate on your wedding day?
We didn’t have a particular theme or style in mind - we were more concerned with the food, wine & music. Organising is more my thing over styling - so we let the best in the business take care of making the Postal Hall at the State Buildings styled to perfection. I was lucky enough to have my bestie Sophie Waddell take lead on the styling together with Natural Art Flowers and Event Artillery.
What is your best advice for couples planning their wedding?
Be true to who you are - spend within your means, invite your most special people, and enjoy the process. It’s not only about the day, it’s about the journey and the lead up. Enjoy every dress fitting, spend a day with your besties at the spa and get immersed in over thinking the seating plan over many boozy dinner dates.
