Our collab partner and designer, Rachel, says that every bride has their own story and we know how important this time is in a woman’s life. It’s our job to listen, guide and encourage our brides. Our Australian designed wedding dresses are made for women to feel beautiful in their own skin, support body positivity and confidence and we encourage brides to be themselves. We don’t believe that brides should feel like they should change their shape, or change themselves for their wedding day.

At And The Veil boutique in Geelong, you will leave the stuffy traditional bridal shopping experience “thing” at the door and be welcomed into a relaxed, luxury space to say yes to the dress with your closest loved ones.
The idea of And The Veil was brought to life in 2013 when mother-Daughter co-owners duo Bronwyn and Rebbeca created their boutique based on the experiences of Rebbeca when she went shopping for her wedding gown in 2009, Bec found nothing but size 6-8 samples and pushy sales people with no knowledge and no passion – this is the complete opposite of And The Veil. Both local ladies, the idea of sharing passion and love with the Geelong and Bellarine community was a total dream.
Rebecca has a passion for sharing her knowledge, having a good chat throughout your booking and knows exactly how to fit a bride of all sizes and shapes. Her previous role in accounts payable for a multi-million dollar company, she is the brains behind the cash side of And The Veil and watches your gown like a hawk during manufacturing and shipping.

St. Leonards, has always looked after the community, with her previous role as an aged care nurse, she will go above and beyond to provide you with the most beautiful experience possible. She is all about making you feel comfortable and super special.
