Our story

Established in 2013 as a project of love to explore the artistry of bridal fashion, Sant Elia has evolved into one of Sydney’s premium couture bridal labels. At the helm, Creative Director and Founder Stephanie Caltabiano is mused by the individual bride, her style and her sense of integrity. 

Stephanie creates for the purpose of giving life to each unique vision with Sant Elia’s signature charm and an aura of sophistication. Synonymous with the vivacious strength of women, Sant Elia remains authentic to Stephanie’s mediterraenean roots which extends into the Atelier experience, where each bride is personally welcomed and consulted by Stephanie and her team of artisans.
