Early last month, friends, family, customers and selected guests attended the 15th year anniversary celebrations for  Helen Rodrigues. A household name amongst brides to be and the fashion industry, Helen Rodrigues first opened the doors of her premier luxury bridal boutique in 2001.

Fifteen years on, it was such a pleasure to celebrate this milestone with Helen and her team! Situated in one of the finest spaces at the Park Hyatt Sydney which had the beautiful glimmering harbour as a backdrop, the night was not only designed to celebrate Helen’s achievement but also to raise money for the McGrath Foundation. As said by Catriona Rowntree, the host and valued friend and client of Helen Rodrigues, it was just like Helen to take the opportunity to give back to the community and support such a great cause.

It is this personal commitment that Helen exudes in every aspect of her work that has made her so popular with brides all over Australia. For brides wanting to experience the luxury designer gowns at the Helen Rodrigues boutique, they are offered private complimentary appointments where they are able to experience the designs with the store to themselves. With designers such as Zuhair Murad, Inbal Dror, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Mira Zwillinger, the boutique is what fairytale dreams are made of! Some of the world’s most beautiful gowns all together in the one place, what more could you want?


Throughout the event, guests were treated to a runway showcasing some of the luxurious gowns with the audience gasping with excitement at every gown. It was so wonderful to see the gowns that Helen selects for the boutique and I can’t wait to see how all her brides will style these dresses on their special days.

By the end of the night, $10,000 had been raised for the McGrath Foundation through donations, raffles and a silent auction which included a Balinese holiday, couture gowns and stunning products from brands such as Oscar de la Renta and Monique Lhuillier. Congratulations to Helen Rodrigues and her team on a truly successful event and 15 years in business. Here’s to the next 15 years!
