Coronavirus Update 26/03/2020


In our previous update we put in a measure restricting only two people being brought into store per bride. Unfortunately due to recent changes made by the Australian government to limit the spread of COVID-19, that limit has now been restricted to only one person per bride brought to a bridal appointment. Bridesmaid dress shopping is now by appointment only, so before planning on coming in store please ring us at (02) 4048110 to provide us numbers of your bridal party in a measure to secure a safe time slot. 

We understand that everyone is being affected by this difficult time and we feel sorry for having to put these restrictions in place, but we do this in the interest of keeping all our brides and staff safe and healthy here at Belles and Beaux. Our thoughts are with you all during these times. Please stay safe and stay healthy.

Delivery Times and Rush Orders

In light of the current worldwide situation with the coronavirus, we’d like to reassure our brides that the standard deliveries of our gowns are not affected at all by this virus and are still running on time as scheduled. The only changes made are in regards to our rush orders/deliveries. To minimise the risk of late delivery we are no longer running rush orders, but we are offering dresses off the rack at discounted prices for brides that have a closer upcoming wedding date.

Owner Elizabeth Monie

In 1989 Belles and Beaux ‘ The Bridal Specialists’ was established with business partner Angela Nicholson. Elizabeth comes from a background in fashion having owned and operated Libby’s Boutique which was in Hunter Street Newcastle in the early 70’s. Elizabeth also has a background in accountancy which together is a good combination to running a successful business.

In 2006 Elizabeth became the sole owner of Belles and Beaux after buying out her business partner Angela who was leaving the Newcastle area to relocate to Taree. In that same year Elizabeth was struck down with leukamia, (APML) and went on a clinical trial, and thanks to Professor Rowlings and the wonderful staff at the hematology ward at the Mater hospital, to this day she is still in remission. Elizabeth had to have 2 years off work and during that time Michelle O’Connor was manageress and the wonderful staff at Belle’s and Beaux kept the business going for her. Apart from the wonderful care Elizabeth received from The Mater, Elizabeth constitutes her good health now to the pleasure she gets from overseeing her business and making sure all her customers have the most wonderful experience choosing their wedding gown at Belles and Beaux.
"I was so happy with my appointment and the incredible staff who were absolutely lovely and accomodating. They have an excellent range in plus size dresses which was fantastic and allowed me to choose my style that best suited my body type. I loved my experience and couldn't recommend them enough!"

In response to the recent restrictions made by the Australian government to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have put a limit to the amount people brought to a bridal appointment, restricting it to two people per bride. This limit does not apply to bridesmaid appointments as we understand that some bridal parties exceed this two person limit, but we request that only the bridesmaids and the bride attend the appointment when looking for bridesmaid dresses.

If you wish to book an appointment with us, please allocate a preferred time and date so that we may confirm its availability. Appointments are booked by the hour starting from opening time of the shop. Opening hours are displayed at the bottom of the page.
