OUR STORY

Nora Eve is a dream come true for owners Emma & Hollie, Our Award-winning boutique was created in 2012 after two best friends one night, had a dream, Emma being a wedding planner wanted to further her career within the wedding industry, and who better to start her next venture with than her best friend Hollie, who was already a successful business owner.

The name ‘Nora Eve’ came from two beautiful ladies, forever in our hearts, our Nans.

We wanted to create a boutique where brides could have a personal and magical experience, the kind you see in the movies.
Our philosophy is, ‘may all that enter as guests, leave as friends.’ And our goal is that every bride feels beautiful, adored, and taken care of when in the boutique and can find exactly what she needs for her special day.
