Calegra Bridal House sells wedding dresses designed by the most trendy and fashion forward designers South Africa has to offer. Made to measurement and attention to detail is what brides can expect. Our service is impeccable, our quality is outstanding. We offer a variety of wedding dress styles that are fashionable yet elegant, modern yet bridal.
I went to a number of places to try on dresses, but none of them even come close to the exceptional service I received, and quality of dresses at Calegra. Karen and her team made me feel welcome and calmed me down from the moment I first stepped in, and the whole experience of buying my dress was one of the highlights of my wedding. The dresses themselves are of the highest standard, and offer styles I didn’t see anywhere else. My dress was made to fit me like a glove. – Carla Botha

Relentless in her pursuit of distinction and refinement, Elbeth searches for only the most opulent French laces and the most sumptuous silks, satins and chiffons made by prestigious fabric houses that are known to supply royalty.
“As a young girl, I was surrounded by the beauty of fabrics. I was brought up in a family of creatives who designed and hand-created our own clothing, my aunts and mother made their own designs and they brought beauty and grace to the garments they sewed. I knew then and by the age of 12, I was determined to study fashion! Bridal and dress designing is actually the only career I have done! I am now designing the 23rd collection for Elbeth Gillis, when a bride comes to us for a bridal gown, they are receiving a wealth of history and dress designing!”
Stocked by boutiques around the world, Elbeth takes private appointments in Cape Town, South Africa. At the Elbeth Gillis Atelier, each gown is carefully handcrafted to ensure impeccable fit and quality.
I would like to thank you and the rest of the team, for that wonderful dress. There was not a second, that I was feeling uncomfortable in it or that I wanted to get changed. It partied through the night, resisted the bush and the sand and kept up to all expectations. Getting the dress from you, was one of the best decisions I made regarding the wedding. I added the sneak peaks, that I received from our photographer. You are welcome to use them if you wish. – Kerstin
