Picture yourself walking down the aisle, your closest friends and family gasp as you enter, your husband to be can’t take his eyes off you. Beautiful silks contouring your body. Elegant, Luxurious, Fabulous and Confident.......... this is what designer Maria Apostolou wants for all her brides.......... “I fall in love with every single wedding dress that I create, I love watching it come to life with every fitting, but the most satisfaction comes after the wedding, hearing how amazing my brides felt on the day and how many compliments they received, WOW what an amazing feeling”

Maria Apostolou started Vellos Bridal as a small home business in 2002, why? Because nothing is more satisfying than creating individual gowns using beautiful fabrics. After working in various positions within the fashion industry and gaining a wealth of experience it was time to step outside the comfort zone of off the rack and follow her heart, it was time to step into the world of couture.

Vellos Bridal is for the bride who is looking for elegance, Vellos Bridal is not about extravagance, it is about beautiful fabrics, the perfect fit and beautiful timeless details that often give a feeling of a time when feminity is what dressing was all about.

Maria invites you to step into her world and let her create a Vellos Bridal Couture Gown for your special day.
