Married at First Sight

Married at First Sight NZ brides share the details on their wedding dresses

The MAFS brides give us the goss on their gowns.

By Ellen Mackenzie
They were all a vision in white when they walked down the aisle to meet and marry their respective grooms at first sight. And while we're yet to see whether their relationships will last the distance, it was certainly a case of love at first sight for (most of) these brides and their gowns.

Carmen Stimpson, 25

How long did it take you to find the perfect dress?
It took a day to find. I tried on five dresses that day and struggled to choose between two quite different ones. But in the end, I'm so in love with the dress I chose.
If you could wear a wedding dress from any celebrity or movie/TV character, whose would it be?
Honestly, it sounds lame, but you can't deny that Kim Kardashian's dress when she married Kanye West was amazing!

Anna Saxton, 25

How long did it take you to find the perfect dress?
I saw it when I walked in and knew I needed to try it on because I loved it so much. I tried on about three dresses, but I knew I loved the one I initially saw. I don't believe in love at first sight, but there's always an exception, right? Especially if it's a wedding dress!
Where did you find inspiration for your wedding look?
Google! I knew I wanted to meet a prince, so I wanted a princess wedding. Winter wonderland was my theme.

Rose Cruickshank, 45

How long did it take you to find the perfect dress?
As soon as I turned around to look at the rack of dresses, it just jumped out at me! I chose three and tried all three on, but I knew the first one was totally my style ... lace, vintage, bohemian, soft and feminine.
What's your favourite romantic movie?
Without a doubt my all-time favourite romance is The Notebook. Although I do love The Time Traveler's Wife too.

Vicky Fuller, 27

How long did it take you to find the perfect dress?
I tried on three dresses, but when I tried on the one I wanted to wear it was like "Bam! This is the one!" It took less than an hour.
What's your all-time favourite romantic movie?
Titanic is the bomb diggity! I die every time watching it. Or PS I Love You – oh my god, Gerard Butler's Irish accent is so dreamy!
Married at First Sight NZ airs Sunday at 7pm, and Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm on Three.
