Essense of Australia

Our Essense of Australia dresses are a huge hit with us and our brides.  At Emily Bridalwear we cant help but adore this collection. Offering the bride a romantic, girly sophisticated look.  We have a stunning collection of blush tones, daring backs, subtle beadwork and delicate laces, personally chosen by their lead designer Martine Harris.

Their expertly designed dresses with fantastic fit and fabrics chosen from Paris and New York, an Essense of Australia dress is full of detail, style and impact.

Having always admired this collection for a number of years, we are now very proud to be one of their prominent stockists in the North.  Essense Of Australia dresses are here to stay in Sheffield for many more years to come!


Essense and Martina Liana Tester Trunk Show


17th, 18th & 19th November

Our extremely popular tester trunk show is back! Be one of the first brides to try on and choose from the 2018/2019 collections. We are so pleased that Essense have asked us to host another tester event. This event is very different to a normal designer day.

The dresses available are literally one offs.

They are hot off the design sketch pad and will be sent to us to “test” on real brides to identify whether they need more tweaks, changes or will even make the collection for next year. The really exciting thing is quite a few get “cut” based on our feedback. It’s a really valuable exercise for the company and great fun for us.  We hold special try on sessions throughout this weekend for all our brides to “test” the dresses.

As a thank you for gathering invaluable feedback Essense will let any bride who falls in love with one of these tester dresses an opportunity to have their very own one made ahead of normal production and release of June at the earliest next year!

With many being cut from the collection, we have found lots of brides have had one of a kind dresses.

To top it off we are offering bubbly, discounts, An Essense stylist on hand to help with your decision. We will have a photographer on hand to document your day as well as a make up artist, who will personally whisk you into beauty personified and give you colour and make up ideas throughout your time with us.

This is always a well attended event, so get your space booked immediately but contacting us now.


Below are some of the designs we have in the boutique for you to try on. Should you know a style that you would like to try on please contact us  and we can look into sourcing a sample for you should we not have it in stock (please note there is a small fee for this service).
