Carina has always had a passion for the fashion industry, so she completed her degree in Fashion design. She had a tough time in the fashion industry and opened a small business making custom gowns. All was well, but then covid closed her doors. She considered changing her career path but decided to give fashion one more go. She contacted Stephanie in 2020 and started as the first in-house tailor of Fynbos bridal boutique, and a beautiful friendship formed at the Pretoria branch.
Stephanie restored Carina's confidence and passion for making her bride's dreams come true. In turn, Carina helped build Fynbos with her technical design skills and knowledge of the bridal industry. Stephanie and Carina share the same heart and love for Fynbos and our beautiful fynbos brides.
In 2022 they noticed that they were getting a lot of low-veld brides at the Pretoria branch, and the seed for a Nelspruit branch was planted. Stephanie and Carina formed a partnership and worked together to chase the Nelspruit dream. They decided it was time for Carina to spread her wings and relocate to Nelspruit with her family to run the store. After a lot of planning, the Nelspruit branch opened in January 2023.
We are excited for this new chapter and the beautiful brides we will be able to help a little closer to their homes with our gorgeous wedding gowns.
I enjoyed every moment of working with the team at Fynbos! From the moment I walked in for my first appointment, finding THE DRESS, and every fitting afterwards, I was surrounded with excitement and such excellent service. Thank you to the ladies at Fynbos! Looking back at my wedding photos, I fall in love again with my dress.
I had such a great experience with Fynbos. They accommodated my tight wedding timeline, altered my dress to be exactly what I wanted, and just went the extra mile.I especially loved their lower prices that is stirred by their heart for every bride to be able to afford their dream dress. What a wonderful team to have worked with. I HIGHLY recommend them.
I fell in love with a dress I would never have picked for myself, you listened and delivered, thank you for making my dream dress journey so special, surprising and amazing! Julle span is amazing!!!
I recently got married in early October, and Fynbos Bridal Boutique made finding my dream wedding dress an absolute dream. They listened to what I wanted and acted with kindness and professionalism. I would recommend Fynbos to every bride.
Sal n honderd keer vir Fynbos Bridal Boutique aanbeveel. Die dames wat daar werk is n amazing span en weet presies wat by jou sal pas en wat nie. Ek het gaan rokke pas net om n idee te kry waarvan ek sal hou en die 2de rok wat hulle gegee het was my *droom rok*. Dankie dames. Dit was n amazing experience gewees.
Where do I even begin. Goodness, I want to thank Lizette for the fantastic service that myself and bridal party received inn December. My experience was phenomenal! Lizette has bubbly for us, glasses, she was welcoming and friendly. We managed to get my party of 6 seated and my sister on a video call. We were having so much fun, we didn't even realise the time. I tried on a few dresses and eventually, I said yes to the dress! I believe the dress is one of the biggest parts of the wedding and with Lizette, I was able to find my dream dress easily while having fun. Please visit her. she is simply amazing.
Die experience, vriendelik staff en obviously my droom trou rok na maande se soek. Ek is ongelooflik dankbaar vir die feit dat julle deel kon wees van die belangrikste dag in my lewe. Die rok en oorbelle het alles net prentjie mooi gemaak en my man se trane omtrent laat loop. Verewig dankbaar.
Ek het so ‘n wonderlike, streslose ondervinding met Fynbos gehad. Ek wou baie graag ‘n custom design gehad het. Sommer ‘n prentjie wat ek op Pinterest gekry het. In my wildste drome nie gedink dat hulle dit op die fynste detail so presies sal regkry nie. Ek was regtig verbaas en dolverlief op my rok.
