Chances are that Mel, as our head stylist, will take your appointment when you book in with us. Our brides adore her and you will too!
We took time out of Mel’s busy schedule to find out more about the girl behind the smile at the GC bridal lounge....
Children: Fur-baby Daenerys
Relationship Status: Mel says she’s “waiting for a ring”.
Have you found the love of your life?
There are two. My partner Patrick and our puppy Daeney. On our days off we like taking our lil’ pup to the beach and then to a dog friendly cafe. They both inspire me every day.

What is your fave dress in store?
I know I shouldn't play favorites, but I love our APHRODITE GOWN SO MUCH! Anyone who sees me will know that it's often the first gown I pick out for a bride.

What do you love about your job:
I love the atmosphere I get to be a part of every day. I love the warm energy and excitement of the brides and their tribe as they all clink their glass of bubbles! It really is such a wonderful experience to be apart of. It’s even more rewarding to see the smile on a bride’s face when she finds 'the one'.
When I get married I will wear:
I won't lie. I have thought about my dream dress! It would most definitely have to be a fit and flare gown (low back of course) paired with a tulle overskirt! I love the idea of having two 'WOW' moments. The first when I walk down the aisle and then the second when I walk into the reception with my fitted gown!
Ideal wedding landscape:
I definitely picture myself getting married outdoors overlooking a beautiful hinterland with a stunning arbor. Pair that with a cocktail style reception under a transparent Marquee with fairy lights and you have my dream setting!
I can't decide between a round trip to America or just a peaceful trip to a tropical Island! Can I do both?
An Ameretto Sour!
Well there you have it, Our Mel in a Nutshell! We can't wait for you to meet her!
