Owner Elizabeth Monie
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.

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 one person per bride. This limit does not apply to bridesmaid appointments as we understand that some bridal parties exceed this one 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.
