About Me

Hi, my name is Dene van Schalkwyk, owner and founder of Anne de Marieé Bridal Studio. I love to create beautiful bespoke gowns and it is so important to me to make my clients feel as beautiful as they are.

I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion degree and have a special interest in corsets. I am a qualified designer by trade and all dresses in my studio are made by hand, specially for you.

I love elegant and timeless gowns, with a touch of whimsical and etherial elements. I create what my clients’ want to their exact specifications and needs. This is my speciality.

I welcome you to my studio, where you will wear luxury.

I have always felt, that any kind of fashion should be timeless. I believe in elegance, and what is better than a timeless, elegant bridal gown? I love seeing the look on a bride’s face when she has her final fitting. That makes all the hard work and late hours, worth it!

I have been in this industry for a while working under a different name. I was formerly known as Dene Odendaal Couture. I have since then decided to challenge myself and grow my business into something new.

A New Name

My new name Anne de Marieé Bridal Studio, is influenced by my Grandmother. Her name is Anne. I inherited my sewing talents from her and I know she will always be looking over my shoulder, guiding me to make each gown perfectly. My love for flowers, has always been a part of me.
A flower is always something you give to someone special, on a special occasion. Giving a gown to her new owner, will always be my way of giving a flower to someone special.
