Stella York focuses on making beautiful bridal gowns which have affordable prices whilst not compromising on high quality & breath-taking designs.

Who are the designers?

Martine, along with her husband Wayne, are the geniuses behind the brand, but they aren’t only known for Stella York, they have a pretty impressive portfolio of bridal fashion labels under their belts. Their journey began when they founded the Essense Designs brand in 1992 in Perth, Australia. Their mission was to design, make and sell wedding gowns which were fashion forward & had a superb fit. To exceed brides’ expectations was what they strived for & it’s exactly what they achieved. The Essense Designs brand is now globally known and respected as one of the best bridal design companies in the world. From the Essense designs brand came the Essense of Australia collection, the Martina Liana collection, the Sorella Vita bridesmaid collection, and of course, the Stella York collection. Each one of these ranges offers something different, but you can always tell when a bridal gown has come from the Essense Designs brand, by their quality fabrics, their romantic styles & their exceptional fit. Think sensational beading, elegant laces , glorious fabrics, soft organzas, floral influences, romantic shapes.

A Stella York bride will be the centre of attention—as every bride should be!
