Modern Oriental Romance

Photography: Erin & Tara

Australian wedding dress designer, Nektaria, has made our hearts skip a beat.

Cicilux takes a look at this unique two piece gown, that delicately embraces the bride's silhouette and strikes the perfect balance between sophisticated and sexy.


Who says the bride can't be sexy?

If you want to add a touch of 'sexy' while staying sophisticated, we have the answer. 

Designer Nektaria brings classy touches of luxury beading, stylish silks and delicate lace to give their gowns a sensual yet refined look, which is perfect for brides who wish to express their sensual side in a chic way.

Our bride, Christine, opted for a two-piece mermaid gown. The corset bodice top and long-trained skirt beautifully complimented Christine's silhouette and taste for high-end style.


The Corset

Christine's timeless love story began well before she walked down the aisle.

Erin + Tara have captured the special moments shared between Christine and her mum as she gets dressed in her Nektaria corset before becoming a married woman.



We are so deeply in love with the corset. Not only does it symbolise the essence of sexiness, but it also encompasses delicate white beading that was finished off by lines of satin buttons.  The bodice was fitted and lined with white tulle, that graciously fell into a heart shape across the  chest. The piece was finished perfectly with detachable shoulder sleeves, which Christine chose to remove for the  night time wedding celebrations.

The Veil

Christine chose to walk down the aisle with her father, while dressed in a custom made, cathedral length veil.

The veil was entirely lined with delicate white lace that fell across the face, and effortlessly over the gown's mermaid tail.

A Mermaid's Tail

Christine's Nektaria mermaid tail skirt brought a romantic influence to a sexy yet, feminine ensemble. 

The  mermaid-tail was graciously complemented by an outer-lace lining, which helped to accentuate the skirt's full length and beautifully compliment Christine's silhouette.  It became an accessory of it's own, as it brought a sense of dramatic elegance to the photos captured by Erin+Tara.

"...Erin + Tara capture the way the bride's personality makes the dress."


Picture Perfect

Erin + Tara captured every detail of Christine's gown, in a way that made even the fleeting of moments stand so perfectly still.

From the black and white silhouette to the gracious fall of Christine's bridal train, Erin + Tara capture the way the bride's personality makes the dress.
