About our Sant Elia custom bridal couture experience

We invite brides to view and try our Sant Elia couture collection at our Atelier in Petersham, NSW. Appointments are essential and can be made here.

Sant Elia specialises in bespoke bridal design. We invite brides who envisage a custom gown to visit our Sydney Atelier for a bridal consultation, where you will collaborate with our Creative Director, Stephanie Caltabiano, to conceptualise your dream look.

The Sant Elia Couture collections are designed by our Creative Director Stephanie Calatabiano and are available for brides to view and try at our Atelier.


Sant Elia Custom Couture is a truly unique bridal experience. The bride will have the opportunity to work with Stephanie to conceptualise your bespoke, one off bridal look. 

During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to view and try our current couture collection - this will assist you and our team to understand the shape of your dream look.

As you discover the Atelier and discuss your envisaged gown, Stephanie will hand sketch your custom design, assessing potential fabrications and styles that reflect your personal style. We invite brides to bring along any images or items you’ve curated over the years that have sparked inspiration for your gown.

Stephanie will talk you and your guests through your gowns journey from conception to final look including fittings and fabric selection. Your personalised quote will be prepared during your consultation and emailed to you shortly thereafter.

Bringing your dream dress to life is our labour of love. We recommend reaching out to our team between ten to twelve months prior to your wedding date. You are welcome to contact us here to book your initial consultation.

We’re passionate about bringing our brides dream gown to life. That being said, please contact our team ASAP to confirm our availability for your wedding dates.

We understand your friends and family could not be more excited for your big day and it’s important that you share in that happiness. For your first bridal consultation, we recommend bringing along no more than two of your most trusted family members or friends. This will ensure you, as the bride, are able to work with Stephanie to breathe life into your dream look without distraction.
