Launched in 2012, Paperswan Bride has quickly established itself as THE place to buy your wedding dress with boutiques in both Wellington & Christchurch.
Stocking local and international wedding dress labels our goal is to offer NZ brides something a little bit different from the norm. We adore all things bridal and we love our customers even more. We bring passion, enthusiasm and love to everything we do. Whether you’re a bohemian babe, hippy chick or vintage goddess, we can channel your inner fashionista and find you the perfect gown.
Kiwi born Jen Barnett launched Paperswan after spotting a gap in the Wellington bridal market. Jen’s early career was in media before she went to work for British bridal and womenswear designer Stewart Parvin, who is not only couturier to Her Majesty the Queen but has also designed for other members of the royal family.
After being based in London for 15 years, Jen returned home to set up business on her own. Her vision was to bring new and inspiring bridal labels to New Zealand, while also creating an unforgettable experience while shopping for your wedding dress.
