Hi Viktoria & Tristen, I wanted to share some photos from my wedding day with you and take the opportunity to thank-you. The customer service I have received since my first phone call, along with the craftsmanship of my stunning Azura crown is second to none. I am so proud to tell others about my experience and recommend you at every opportunity. I have received so many compliments about my crown about how it "made" my outfit on my wedding day. I must also admit that I often fight the urge to wear it during my day to day life.
Ashley Larcombe, Melbourne Bride, July 2016---
Dear Viktoria & Tristen, First I would like to say what a pleasure it was to meet you both, I have never met such successful yet humble people as yourselves. And I am so grateful for all your help and for making my wedding day so much more special. I felt so glamorous and I have you guys to thank for it. I'm sure that I will be back for another special occasion and look forward to seeing you both again.

To Viktoria and Tristen, earlier this year I fell in love with the Aedos crown and had it ordered for my wedding in June. I wanted to thank everyone who works for Viktoria Novak for their help. Tristen, you made ordering the crown from Canada feel easy and safe. You were prompt in returning emails when Canada Post was going through a strike and there were concerns with the item arriving on time.
Thankfully, the item still arrived in good time and I wanted to send some pictures your way of the crown being lovingly worn on June 18th. Thank-you Viktoria for your beautiful and elegant designs. Wearing this crown was definitely one of the major highlights of my wedding day and I'm excited to be able to wear it in future!
Kara Froese, Canada Bride, June 2016---
What an absolutely pleasure it was meeting with Viktoria and Tristen who are two of the most hardworking people I know. Their passion and dedication to their work is an inspiration to many, and I am honoured to have had the opportunity to wear a beautiful custom design by Viktoria on my wedding day. Viktoria has a unique flare and creative eye for one of a kind headpieces. No matter your budget, there are a range of designs to suit all brides! It was so lovely to have met you and I am looking forward to wearing other pieces in the future! Thank you for making everything so easy and simple.
Anna Vardas, Sydney Bride, June 2016---
To Viktoria and Tristen, I wanted to say thank you again. Being able to wear one of your divine pieces on my wedding day was like another one of my dreams come true. The detailing in the beading and layering of the lace made me feel like I had my own individual crown for the day. The whole experience was amazing from initially going to your showroom, picking up and having you place your masterpiece on me to being able to where it on the best day of my life. This piece of art now sits on my dresser in its glass box and I hope one day to be able to give it to my daughter to wear on her wedding day.
Ellissa Fry, Sydney Bride, May 2016---
Dear Viktoria & Tristen, I would just like to say thank you very much for how amazing you both were. Viktoria - Thank you for the most beautiful headpiece, and for going out of your way to make it so it fits with the side I had it on. I cannot express to you how much I love it!!! I got so many compliments on the day and still get so many when people are looking through the photos and see the headpiece. Tristen - for making the whole process so easy for me. For helping me choose the right headpiece and all the advice when I was there. So, once again, thank you for everything.
Natasha Trajanovska, Melbourne Bride, May 2016---
Hi Viktoria & Tristen! I can't thank you enough for making my day that extra special! Our day was so beautiful and I was showered with complements! I’ve been following you for a while on Instagram and it's been lovely watching you grow as a designer and making these beautiful crowns. The day I got engaged, it was my dream to wear a Viktoria Novak Crown on our special day. I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t! When I received it, I was absolutely speechless, I could see how much work goes into making one, so I would love to say a huge THANK YOU for my beautiful custom creation. You are truly an amazing designer.
Lauren Greaves, United Kingdom Bride, January 2016---
Thank you Viktoria and Tristen for making me look like an absolute queen on my wedding day. No words can begin to explain just how thankful I am. Assyrians believe you're a King and queen on your wedding day and I really felt that way. I was complemented by all 720 guests at my wedding and people’s eyes were glued to my crown. I am so happy that I made the choice of coming to you. Keep up the good work. God bless always.
Hedra Moshy, Sydney Bride, January 2016---
Hi Tristen, I absolutely loved my Viktoria Novak 'Alana' piece that I wore for my wedding on December 19, 2015. Daniel and I got married at Zonzo Estate in the Yarra Valley. I just wanted to thank you for the amazing customer service, and for creating such a special piece. It was my absolute favourite thing about my outfit (yes, loved it more than the dress!!) and will treasure it forever! Thank you! x
Deborah Wutzke, Victoria Bride, December 2015---
Hi Viktoria & Tristen, thank you so much for your lovely and welcoming service, you are both beautiful people. Viktoria, thank you so much for creating the perfect headpiece for my wedding, I LOVED it! You are an extremely talented woman and it was an honour wearing one of your headpieces. All the best to you both for 2016 and look forward to seeing one another in the future.
Alyssa Barac, Canberra Bride, November 2015---
Hi Viktoria and Tristen, Firstly, I just wanted to thank you with all of my heart for making the most beautiful crown for me to wear on our wedding day, I honestly think it was the most complimented part of the whole wedding day and I felt absolutely amazing wearing it, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you so so so much again. Lots of love Emily.
Emily Gavan, Sydney Bride, November 2015---
Hi Viktoria, my hair piece was one of my absolutely favourite things about my day. I fell absolutely in love with my hair piece and when I got the photos back, I loved it even more. It was more than I envisioned and I am so thankful for how lovely and sweet you were when I met you and how you had just what I wanted. Thank you so so so so so so much -- your hands are such a blessing.
Jessica Lambert, Sydney Bride, July 2015---
Dear Viktoria, I cannot thank you enough for the gorgeous headpiece you made for me for our wedding in June. It just topped off the day and I felt like a total princess. All along the process of ordering and then attending the consultation to the follow up I have received, I have been beyond impressed with you and your business. Tristen is so affable and so great with communication. I must confess I was a little awe-struck when I met you at our consultation because I didn't realise you would actually be there in person and you were so lovely to meet and just made me feel so comfortable and at ease.
When I first saw your amazing creations online, I could only dream of getting one of my own, let alone wearing it on my big day and you made the dream come true! There were some little girls visiting our venue Ravensthorpe at Albion Park on the day and not actually in attendance at our wedding. I made my way to the bathroom for a quick break as you do and they were whispering around the corner "there's a princess here, she has a crown and pink dress, I just saw her". They gasped when I came back out through the hallway of the homestead and were like "I told you there was a princess!" So sweet. I expected gasps from my family and groom but not total strangers!
I had so many compliments on the day for my Ella headpiece and also from photos online etc. It was just perfect and I am so, so grateful to you for creating it for me. Through various family circumstances we wanted to keep the wedding simple and not have too massive of a budget, due to my parents being retired and my mother having a terminal disease. We weren't even sure if mum would make it to the wedding at one stage, due to her illness. I just didn't want to put any added burden on them financially so we had a very rustic, vintage wedding and I did most of the decorations and details myself and it was mostly handmade. I even tried my hand at doing all of the flowers and bouquets and they worked out well I think, thankfully. My headpiece was a special thing I treated myself to after having saved up and by doing so much DIY. I have some absolutely treasured images now with my precious mum with me in my crown and her all dolled up for the wedding. Mum said it reminded her of when I used to put on a tiara and dance around as a little girl! She was so proud and just radiated joy on the day from seeing me so happy.
My maid of honour and bestie Louise wore one of your creations also, I got her one of your headpieces 'Victoria' second-hand. There's a bit of a story there. She got married when we were 18 and had a registry wedding. She never got to have the big day and feel like a princess and is now the most amazingly dedicated and hard-working mother of seven children, raising them on her own. She never complains and will never accept pity or charity. Anyway, she cried her eyes out and couldn't believe how beautiful your handiwork is when I gave her headpiece to her and it looked so lovely in her hair on the day, so thank you double for making us both feel so special. You can catch a glimpse of her headpiece in the pictures too.
My amazing husband Nathan said I took his breath away when he saw me and he loved seeing the crown on me after hearing all about it in the lead-up to the wedding. I hope from this email the main message that you get is that you didn't just make me a headpiece, you helped bring a dream to life and touched many hearts in the process with my mother and dear friend Louise, as well as mine most of all.
Thank you doesn't seem quite adequate but sincerely Viktoria, thank you so very much,
Nicole Gorrie, Sydney Bride, June 2015---
Viktoria was awesome to deal with & very talented at her job!! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting something that little extra bit special on your day!!! Gorgeous headpieces!! Check them out!
Rebecca Jakelic, Sydney Bride, March 2015---
Loved my crown! Actually everyone loved my crown. This was a last minute addition to my outfit and Viktoria fit me in Even though she was flat out with spring carnival. She did an amazing job crafting my couture crown, something I will keep and love forever!
Melissa Di Naccio, Melbourne Bride, January 2015---
Thank you for creating something so stunning for me to wear on our special day. The excitement that ran through me in the few moments it took to put on and the first time I saw it on, was something I will never forget!! Nothing but compliments from ALL of our guests! Thank you again
Sarah Francis, Sydney Bride, December 2014---
Hi Viktoria, thank you so much for my beautiful Tegan headpiece, it finished my whole look off perfectly and I had so many wonderful comments about it. You are incredibly talented and I wish I could wear it every day! Thank you again for the hard work and effort you put in to my piece, I will cherish it forever. Love and best wishes
Gaby Stockton, Sydney Bride, December 2014---
Viktoria is the sweetest most genuine person out there. Her attention to detail is amazing and I was honored to be able to wear one of her custom creations for my wedding!
Cassandra Sydenham, Canberra Bride, November 2014---
I cannot praise Viktoria Novak highly enough. Being based in Melbourne, shopping for a wedding that was being held in Perth, should have been a hassle. But not once did I have any trouble ordering my headpiece from Viktoria Novak in Sydney. Viktoria and Tristen were an absolute delight to work with - friendly, helpful, prompt and knowledgable. Nothing was too hard. They kept me in the loop every step of the way, answered all my questions, explained the process clearly and were always fun and lively to work with. I was beyond thrilled with my headpiece - it was pulled my bridal look together perfectly and gave me a unique point of difference when I look back on all the weddings I have attended over the years.
The craftsmanship was outstanding and it will be a treasured momento that I look forward to handing down to children and grandchildren. I really can't give Viktoria and Tristen enough praise. They are a joy to work with and their post-wedding service and communication is also fantastic. I would recommend them to any friend getting married.
Laura Philips, Melbourne Bride, November 2014---
Hi Viktoria, I want to say thank you again. Your pieces were more than what I could have envisioned for my wedding day. Both pieces made me feel like a princess and I couldn't off asked for anything more. People are still commenting on your amazing craftsmanship - you are definitely one of a kind and I'm so happy that you created my pieces. You were such a delight to deal with and made that process of my wedding planning so much easier. Thank you again for creating such beautiful pieces (which I cannot wait to pass down to my children).
Jacinta Cutrupi, Sydney Bride, November 2014---
Dear Viktoria, I can't thank you enough for your beautiful work on my stunning Lexi hair piece and well wishes for our wedding. You truly are one of a kind!! So grateful that Krissy referred me to you... Can’t imagine my bridal look without you! Lots of love xx
Lauren Clarke, Sydney Bride, November 2014---
Dear Viktoria, I can't thank you enough for the amazing headpiece you created for me for my wedding!! It really was a show stopper and I'm still receiving comments as to how gorgeous it was. You are so talented and I wish you every success in the world! Thanks a million! Xx
Kirsty Williams, Sydney Bride, October 2014---
Viktoria Novak was so amazing to deal with from beginning to end. And she really takes the time to get to know you, so she knows your style and personality. Her pieces of work are like art. Absolutely stunning!! and the quality is perfection. I have and always will recommend her to friends and family. Her personality shines through what she does and how she speaks to her clients. I didn't have to worry about a thing, knowing Viktoria was doing my head piece and belt for my wedding. She does a Beautiful job.
Anna Steffer, Sydney Bride, September 2014---
Viktoria Novak's designs are one of a kind and the flawless personal service comes with it!! The most amazing touch to your wedding day is one of Viktoria's custom made bridal head pieces! Once you see the designs in person you can truly see and can appreciate the exquisite detailing. Simply breathtaking!!!
Rebekah McNeilly, Queensland Bride, September 2014---
Viktoria is truly an amazing woman - very talented with a keen eye for detail. She created the most exquisite headpieces for my recent wedding. I would highly recommend all brides to see Viktoria for a unique custom made piece for their special day.
Katrina Carangelo, Sydney Bride, September 2014---
Hi Viktoria, I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely loved wearing your headpiece for our wedding. I have always loved headpieces and to be honest was more excited for that than my dress, and it absolutely exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you for making the purchasing and selecting experience so enjoyable. I was totally blown away by not only your work but also how kind and helpful both you and Tristen were. Congratulations on all of your success, I hope it continues to grow for you! And again, my headpiece was without a doubt my favourite accessory for the day!
Hayley Madden, Sydney Bride, September 2014---
Dear Viktoria, I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the headpiece and bouquet you made for my special day. They really were amazing. Thanks again for all your hard work.
Haley Moran, Queensland Bride, August 2014---
Dearest Viktoria, Thank you so much for supplying me with the most amazing headpiece. I got so many compliments and it suited the dress perfectly. Lots of love.
Priya Rao, Melbourne Bride, July 2014---
From the initial contact with Viktoria through to receiving the finished product I was made to feel extremely special and the service was fantastic. The hours of work that went into creating my headpiece was evident and the quality was second to none. I received so many positive comments on my wedding day about how amazing the headpiece was and I could not recommend Viktoria highly enough to prospective brides.
Laura Dally, Sydney Bride, June 2014---
Dear Viktoria, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for my amazing headpiece and veil. I felt like a princess and more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed of. Having something so beautiful to wear on my wedding day topped of the most perfect day of my life. You helped to make mine and Matt's day beyond perfect and for that we are forever grateful.
Caitlyn Maddison, Queensland Bride, June 2014---
Hi Viktoria, thank you so much for the headpiece you created for my wedding day. It suited my dress perfectly and helped me create the theme of the entire wedding! Thank you for being such a talented, and lovely person, you have made me an heirloom that I will pass on for it to be enjoyed for years to come! The earrings we purchased from you were also an amazing touch to the whole outfit.
Therese Frangie, Sydney Bride, June 2014---
Hi Viktoria and Tristen, I would like to say a huge big thank you for my amazing headpiece and all your help leading up to my big day. I was absolutely thrilled with my custom piece and received countless comments on the day. Viktoria, your work is breathtakingly beautiful and the perfect addition to any brides attire. Thank you both for your professionalism and great service at every step of the way. You are an asset to both the bridal and millinery industries!!!
Victoria Busuttil, Sydney Bride, May 2014----
Hi Viktoria, just wanted to say a big thank you for the beautiful headpiece you made for me for my wedding in May 2014. It was an amazing day, and the piece was divine, and matched perfectly with my dress. I’ve attached a couple of pics so you can see the fruits of your labours! Wishing you all the best.
Amanda Cupples, UK Bride, May 2014---
Hi Viktoria, I just cannot thank you enough, your head piece was my absolute finishing touch to what I felt was my dream look on my wedding day. It was classic and so very stunning. It was a work of art and your talent, well I can't even describe - you’re gifted. With no idea what I really wanted, I somehow with your guidance ended up with the perfect piece. I'll be your customer forever. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.
Melissa Ragau, Queensland Bride, April 2014---
Hi Viktoria and the Team, I wanted to send you email to thank you from the bottom of my heart for my beautiful headpiece that was made for my wedding. I had such amazing compliments on the hairpiece both from guests and other wedding suppliers. The service you offered to an ‘out of town’ bride was wonderful and I thank you for the personal touches (i.e. sending me a picture of the headpiece being made) which made me feel part of the process despite the many kilometres between us. Thank you again so much and apologies for the delay in email (have been enjoying our honeymoon).
Phillipa Barling, Queensland Bride, March 2014---
Viktoria, you were absolutely amazing to work with. I cannot thankyou enough for creating my beautiful hairpiece. You helped me create a perfect hairpiece, when I didn’t even know what I wanted myself. It’s something I will treasure forever. Thank you sooo much. Keep doing what you’re doing… it was really refreshing to deal with such a lovely person when planning my wedding! Xx
Ana-Maria Matovinovic, Sydney Bride, March 2014---
My experience with Viktoria Novak was nothing but pure professionalism. I spoke with Viktoria countless times on the phone, through email and text as I was 850km away. After only being able to carefully choose my piece via photos, Viktoria explained all elements of the piece and sent me photos of the different ways I could wear it and countless varieties of headpieces to ensure I was choosing the right one, for my wedding day. I purchased my headpiece on a Thursday afternoon and it was at my door by lunchtime on Friday. I cannot describe how helpful and Viktoria was throughout the transaction. My headpiece and Wendy Makin (Melbourne) dress were the highlight of the wedding. Thank you xx
Jessica Truscott, Melbourne Bride, February 2014---
Dear Viktoria, the headpiece and the jewellery were absolutely perfect and I received many compliments on them. I now have my headpiece and bracelet stored in a keepsake box and maybe one day the headpiece can be my niece’s (or daughter if I have one) "something borrowed". Or, if it doesn't match their gown, I know I will be referring them / sending them / accompanying them to a consult with you for their very own special headpiece. Thank you again for being a special part of my wedding day and all of the consultation leading up to the day - you are one of a kind!
Valentina Nathan, Canberra Bride, February 2014---
As soon as I laid eyes on the Viktoria Novak “Judith” headpiece, I fell in love. I always knew when it came the time to plan our wedding that I didn’t want to wear a veil, so this would be the perfect headpiece to compliment my Non Traditional Bohemian Luxe Wedding. Since the first inquiry email sent to Viktoria, I knew I wanted to work with her. As a bride I enjoyed my Wedding Planning so much as I chose to only work with organised, understanding and friendly people just like Viktoria.
You only get to plan a wedding once so I wanted to make it as enjoyable and stress free as possible. I was heavily pregnant during the planning process and unable to travel interstate to meet Viktoria in person for a consultation, however nothing was too hard for Viktoria, constantly communicating via phone and email, the process was so smooth. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and piece I will treasure forever.
Sarah Shannon, Melbourne Bride, January 2014---
Viktoria Novak's millinery creations are simply amazing. I was able to purchase my custom made headpiece through numerous phone and email consultations. The product was delivered to me on time, and was exactly as my heart desired. The service was exceptional throughout the whole process. Additionally, Viktoria intrinsically knew what I was looking for and was able to create something truly gorgeous for me to wear on my wedding day. Every consultation with Viktoria was easy and exciting, and I couldn't wait to receive my order. I truly believe that Viktoria is a very talented individual and I was lucky to have had access to her beautiful creations. My custom headpiece was hand crafted beautifully and still gives me a sense of amazement when I look at it.
I have dealt with many wedding related vendors and have not had the best experiences with many. I can highly recommend Viktoria to any person looking for that unique special piece for their day. I can also endorse Viktoria Novak creations as one of the best experiences I had whilst planning my wedding. I am truly lucky to own my very own Viktoria Novak creation and to have had the opportunity to wear it on the most special day of my life. I highly rate Viktoria Novak and look forward to seeing this business grow and provide amazing products to all the people looking for that unique millinery creation.
Neelam Malik, Brisbane Bride, January 2014---
I want to thank you again for creating my headpiece in such short notice. Even though you were booked out you still made time for me when you saw that my heart was set on this particular headpiece. Also I want to thank you as well for making the whole process so easy for me thanks to your creativity and professionalism. The headpiece was absolutely stunning. It complemented my dress and completed my look. It was very lovely meeting and I hope to see you again in the near future!
Keti Kulukovksi, Sydney December 2013---
Dear Viktoria, I'm still so in love with my head piece whenever I look at my photos! You where such a pleasure to work with and you made everything so easy for me. I loved how you also matched up my earrings to the head piece perfectly. Everything was just beautiful. Thanks again xxxx
Melissa Raine, Melbourne Bride, December 2013---
Dear Viktoria, I cannot thank you enough for my amazing headpiece that you designed for my wedding day. I had been following you on social media and I loved all of your pieces. When my grandmother asked me to wear my great grandmother’s brooch I could think of only you to design it into a headpiece. I was so excited when you said you would. You have such a beautiful personality and this is reflected in your work. Your time and dedication to what you do is amazing. I loved the time my mum and I spent in your studio discussing the design and was blown away with what you came up with. I received so many comments on the day and it made my dress. So thank you again. Love Steph x
Steph Ficken, Sydney Bride, December 2013---
Hi Viktoria, as soon as my beautiful headpiece was placed in my hair last Saturday I knew it was one of the most special, gorgeous and unique things that would make my day just perfect. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to sit with to find the perfect headpiece for me. I think it's very fitting that my piece is called 'Cherish' because that's exactly what I will do, cherish it. My beautiful brooch bouquet received so many comments on how lovely it was and how intricate its design was. Thank you!! It was everything I wanted and then some!
Sally Besanvalle, Sydney Bride, December 2013---
Hi Viktoria! I would just like to say thank you for my amazing bridal cloche you made me for my wedding day. I received so many compliments about it. Even my groom said it was unreal! You were so fantastic with the design process considering it was over the phone and email. It is truly a piece to treasure and it will forever be my keepsake. I hope one day I can pass it down to a daughter. Thank you again, you are just amazing.
Bree Phoenix, Melbourne Bride, November 2013---
Viktoria, your talent only comes second to your beautiful soul. In the time you designed my headpiece I saw your marvellous God given talent in action and will always treasure the stunning result that sparkles in my wedding photos. Thank you for adding class and elegance to my day and for knowing just what I wanted and making it reality.
Sladana Nikolic, Sydney Bride, November 2013---
Hi Viktoria! I wish I could relay to you all the wonderful admiration my guests had about your piece! It was just perfect. Perfect. It's something I can't wait to show my daughter or future daughter in law and pass on to the next bride in our family. Thank you for this experience and thank you for sharing your talent and hard work!!!
Ramona Peñala, New York Bride, October 2013---
The moment I stepped foot in your gorgeous studio- I knew I wasn't leaving without something spectacular! The entire experience was breath taking and your passion for what you do shines through your face and shows in your work, you are inspiring! My head piece is just divine... Truly beautiful... And watching the updates of my amazing unique and quirky brooch bouquets come to life was phenomenal! The idea of the electric bouquets were the inspiration for my entire wedding theme, which- with your help, made my wedding truly remarkable and certainly memorable. The attention to detail and heart and soul that went in to all 7 pieces are simply priceless. You are amazing Viktoria Novak and truly worth your weight in gold and more! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such magic for my special day!
Natashia Michael, Canberra Bride, October 2013---
I can't recommend Viktoria Novak highly enough - her work is amazing, she is so professional and an absolute dream to deal with. I can guarantee you will fall in love with her pieces as much as I did. Trust her, she knows what she's doing and she's SO good at it.
Clare Prentice, Sydney Bride, October 2013---
Viktoria, although your head piece is simply stunning and completed my desired “look”, it was the exclusivity and overall experience that has made this piece a worthwhile investment. It was such a decadent treat to be in your show room. What an indulgent experience. Your patience, attention to detail – the craftsmanship in your work is exquisite, the lack of pretention, your approachable nature and the amount of inspirational options has left me wondering – when can I justify to my new husband that I need another VN? Thank you for adding something so special to my overall “wedding experience”. Hopefully one day, I can pass on my “vintage Viktoria Novak” to a child of mine. But for now, Melbourne Cup has left me with an excellent excuse to ponder when I’ll get my next ‘fix’
Jane Hartcher, Sydney Bride, September 2013---
I just had the wonderful experience of meeting Viktoria and trying on her beautiful collection of headpieces for my upcoming wedding. The beautiful piece we selected was days old and I am so honoured that you named it after me. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your professionalism, passion and beautiful work. You have provided me with that extra piece that will not only complete my wedding look but will be kept for generations to come!
Jessica Barracosa, Bride-to-be---
Thank you so much Viktoria for my stunning headpiece and veil. I'm in love with it and it compliments my dress and theme. You were so helpful (especially as I am not too good with this sort of thing lol) and the matching earrings just make it perfect xxx I can't wait to wear it now!!!
April Rose, Bride-to-be---
Just wanted to say thank you so much Viktoria, you have made my dreams come true! As soon as you’re opened your studio door to my mum & I our jaws dropped! You knew exactly what I was looking for and I cannot wait to wear one of your magical creations on my big day xx
Kayla Xerri, Bride-to-be---
Hi Viktoria and team, I just wanted to thank you so much for my beautiful Capri headpiece. It was my amazing mum Debbie that purchased it for me and I now have such a stunningly handmade treasure for my wedding day, and what’s more; I have an heirloom piece to hand down to my daughters. It was meant to be when I saw that piece (as I also live in a place called Isle of Capri). Upon receiving it in the mail it was such an experience just opening the box, I got wee butterflies in my stomach when I tried it on, I knew it was perfect. When my mum came for her holiday the other week I put the headpiece on for her the same day I got my dress and to see them both on... let’s just say we were emotional. Thank you so much for your amazing work, and completing my bridal look.
Jemma Church, Bride-to-be---
Hi Viktoria, I just wanted to say a big thank you for my beautiful head-piece and birdcage. It was a pleasure to work with you and wear your truly elegant design and creation. From the very first meeting, the process was seamless and very enjoyable. You accommodated my budget and for a piece that should have taken a couple of weeks longer, you finished it ahead of time for me as I had a very tight deadline. When collection day arrived, you even stayed back after hours for me to collect it after work which was more suitable for me. Thanks again, I will gladly spread the word of your beautiful creations and wonderful service.
Anita Nunnari, Sydney Bride, September 2013---
Thanks Viktoria for such an amazing piece of art. With your help, we have definitely created my perfect one of a kind masterpiece. It is a huge reflection of my personality, the fine detailed embellishments, crystals and pearls we all arranged together so beautifully and I just can't thank you enough for this. From the first time I stumbled across your pieces, I knew I had to have you make one for my wedding (and this was quite a long time ago). Meeting you, sitting with you and going through our journey together, your experience, eye for detail and most importantly your passion and the strive to create these beautiful pieces really shines through. From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you for the experience and what has come out of it. Can't wait to show you more photos of our beautiful wedding and see you again for another piece! Lots of love!!!
Ling Sau, Sydney Bride, September 2013---
Dear Viktoria, I want to thank you so much for my beautiful headpiece. I loved it. It looked and felt amazing all day. Also I want to thank you (and Tristen) for the amazing experience. I was really worried about what to do with my hair and since I didn't want a veil I wanted something special all the same but just couldn't find it! From the moment I sent an inquiry email to my appointment at your little treasure cove to wearing it on the day, I couldn't have asked for more. Lovely, warm, honest advice and just beautiful pieces I knew I had struck gold!!! I also bought a beautiful bracelet which I really like as well and wore on the day. I recommend you to everyone and wish you every success, I hope to see you again and have an occasion to wear a creation of yours. Much love
Aisling McManus, Sydney Bride, August 2013---
To the Amazingly Talented Viktoria, I'm so glad that I stopped by your stand at one of the many wedding expos I had been to. From the moment I saw your pieces with my mum, we knew that we had to get one for my wedding! I was lucky enough to get an already made headpiece that matched my dress perfectly. You are truly one of a kind that made my wedding day that little bit extra special. So many of my guests complimented me on it and are still doing so, thank you so much for creating something that I will treasure forever!
Jess Laws, Sydney Bride, August 2013---
Viktoria I cannot thank you enough for the custom made headpiece you prepared for me to wear on my special day. Not only did you do such a beautiful job but you also managed to make it in the little time I gave you. It was truly a stunning piece and still to this day I have people telling me how beautiful the headpiece was. I honestly am so thankful for all your hard work in preparing this piece of beauty for me, you made my day that extra bit special.

I'd originally heard of Viktoria Novak through various magazines and social media posts from friends, and instantly fell in love with her work. When I got engaged last year, one of the first things I decided was that I wanted Viktoria to design my bridal brooch bouquets. The whole process was so easy and very exciting. Viktoria knew exactly what I wanted before I even knew myself! I was made to feel very involved throughout the whole process, even though I live 3 hours away! The end result was truly amazing, and made my special day even more memorable. And to top it all off, my bridesmaids and I have a wonderful keepsake that will last for many years. Thank you Viktoria! xoxoxo

Planning for my wedding I had sorted the dress out but I wanted something extra. So my personal Trainer Jess put me on to Viktoria Novak. I had thought about wearing a headpiece but was still undecided. But after seeing all of the beautiful pieces that were on offer my mind was made up. I picked the perfect piece and Viktoria even added a few pieces of my actual dress to it as well! I couldn’t wait to show my fiance on our wedding day, but before that I was showing complete strangers pictures of it!!!! On my wedding day it went perfectly with my dress. So many people commented on what a gorgeous piece it was and how it really did add that little something extra. And even better is the fact that it will be a beautiful heirloom to pass down to my 2 little girls on their special days!! Thank you so much Viktoria!!!

Your service was outstanding, your passion for your work was a delight to see and I was thrilled to have found you. I was very pleased with everything. You were a big part of my wedding day...everyone loving the headpiece, bouquet and earrings! By the way, thanks for the tip of going 'bigger' with the earrings.
Janine Miller, Sydney Bride, May 2013---
Viktoria is absolutely AMAZING! She created the perfect hairpiece to perfectly compliment my wedding gown and gorgeous embellishments for my shoes. She is truly the best in the industry. I highly recommend her and can't wait for an excuse for a new hairpiece.
Foni Kountouris, Sydney Bride, May 2013 (Score: 5/5)---
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for providing me with the perfect headpiece for my wedding. I can’t even begin to count the amount of comments I received on the wedding day about how gorgeous it looked. You truly have an amazing talent and I LOVED the whole experience of coming into your workshop and choosing the headpiece. It was all just so special. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Anna Dougherty, Sydney Bride, April 2013---
As soon as I had decided on my wedding dress I knew I wanted a beautiful lace headpiece to complete my look. I searched online and in bridal boutiques and was about ready to give up on my 'dream look' until I finally found Viktoria Novak. How glad I am that I found her in time! The moment I saw her designs online I knew I had to make an appointment. Viktoria is so passionate and devoted to her designs and it’s evident from the moment you step into her studio. She greets you warmly, listens to you and she understands your individual taste
I could have walked away happily with any piece she had in her studio, but I fell in love with just one. It was just perfect and looked like it had been made for my dress. It now sits front and centre in my display cabinet because I can't bear to put something so beautiful away! The difference with Viktoria's pieces are that they are all one of a kind, hand crafted and made with love. Viktoria takes care to ensure that the pieces sit beautifully and comfortably on your head. You won't find any pieces like hers anywhere! Trust me I've looked at them all! I can't recommend Viktoria Novak enough for brides to be!
Natalie Hand, Sydney Bride, April 2013---
To the lovely Viktoria, I just wanted to thank you again for making such a beautiful headpiece that I will keep close and stare at for the rest of my life! I had so many compliments at my wedding about how unique it was and how stunning it looked with my dress. Thank you for taking the time to help me choose a headpiece that was right for me. I did not feel rushed by you at any time and I have told so many future brides about the wonderful service I received! I hope I have another special occasion in the future as an excuse to visit you again! Thank you once again.
Tanya Dutfield, Sydney Bride, April 2013---
Viktoria, I have never met a woman who is so inspired, passionate and stylish about what they do. The way you created my piece to flow through to my vintage inspired wedding theme and included features of my wedding dress into my piece was effortless. You really knew how to capture my dream headpiece which was gorgeous and exquisitely crafted. I loved wearing it so much I didn’t want to take it off. The whole experience was perfect, I felt like a million dollars. I can’t say enough great things about you, not only are you helpful, tremendously gifted, and extremely creative and your attention to detail is outstanding. You truly care about making sure your brides are 100% satisfied with their pieces. First-class customer service, you have gone above and beyond my expectations to ensure I was happy. I highly recommend Viktoria Novak and her high quality and unique pieces. I can never truly thank you enough for what you created for me on my special day.
Luana Bishara xxx, Canberra Bride, April 2013---
Amongst all the 'wedding salesmen' during wedding planning, Viktoria Novak was a breath of fresh air. Not only was she personable, efficient and friendly; the headpiece was the most unique and stunning headpiece I have ever seen. Her passion for making such amazing pieces is undoubtedly evident. Viktoria, I cannot thank you enough.
Vanessa Young, Melbourne Bride, April 2013---
Dear Viktoria, I just wanted to say from the day I started to plan my wedding the one thing I was sure about was my headpiece, I knew it had to be a one of a kind Viktoria Novak design. After our initial face-to-face meeting in your lovely showroom and showing you my dress, you reassured me you could make the perfect headpiece and you delivered in every way possible. Your expertise and experience really made the perfect accessory for my wedding dress; it was a beautiful couture awe inspiring piece that exceeded all my expectations. Thank you so much for your personal touch towards my headpiece, I cannot thank you enough.
Tina Garcia, Canberra Bride, March 2013---
I found Viktoria's website one day when I was browsing online, looking for various suppliers who shared my love of whimsical and ethereal designs. I didn't know I wanted a headpiece until I stumbled across Viktoria's beautiful and delicate designs. Just like that, how I would look on my wedding day instantly formed in my mind. I made an appointment to meet with Viktoria to discuss ideas, and meeting her was the clincher. Viktoria is warm, bubbly and greets you like an old friend. She made the process so easy and I ended up choosing an amazing Ivory one-off piece from her showroom that very day, as well as a beautiful pair of vintage-inspired earrings. If you want to surround yourself with talented and genuine people in the lead up to your big day, I would definitely recommend Viktoria Novak.
Yvette Scerri, Sydney Bride, March 2013---
I happened upon Viktoria Novak and her amazing creations by accident. What started as an inquiry resulted in stunning creations that I could only have dreamt of. Along with her amazing millinery skills Viktoria's generosity, humility and passion for her profession made my experience truly special. From initial contact, through consultation, to doing the make-up for my bridesmaids and I on the day (we were lucky to be her last) Viktoria was professional, friendly and exceeded my expectations. With the process of wedding planning so often stressful, Viktoria instilled a sense of confidence and trust. These traits are so rare in the wedding industry and were not only refreshing but immensely appreciated. I cannot thank Viktoria enough for my beautiful custom headpiece with bride cage veil and brooch bouquet and have already recommended her to my family and friends.
Natasha Milligan, Canberra Bride, March 2013---
The theme for my wedding was art deco/Great Gatsby. I had found my dress and wanted a personalised headpiece to compliment it instead of a veil. After searching the internet to find a milliner, I found Viktoria Novak. Her unique style and vintage inspired head-wear took my breath away and I knew straight away I wanted her to make my wedding accessories. I took my mum along with me to my first appointment. As soon as I walked into her studio I was in ore and knew I was going to have a difficult decision ahead of me trying to pick one design when I liked every single one of her showroom pieces. Viktoria was very welcoming to us and made us feel relaxed and at home instantly. After I tried on a few pieces I worked with Viktoria in customising my own personalised unique headpiece. She knew exactly what I wanted.
I went in there only wanting a headpiece but ended up ordering a brooch bouquet, button holes for the groom, groomsmen and father of the bride as well as wrist pieces for my bridesmaids and button holes for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. I was extremely excited knowing that I was going to have something completely different and unique for my wedding day. The detail and intricacy of Viktoria's work was outstanding and very refined. Each piece was wrapped with the utmost care and professionalism and also sprayed with a little perfume so each smelled delightful. Her attention to detail was amazing. She is very good at what she does. From my wedding I have given Viktoria's details to a lot of my friends and family and still get asked where did you get your headpiece made? Also from other friends on Facebook who weren't at my wedding. I would use Viktoria again in a heartbeat.
Alison Browning, Sydney Bride, March 2013---
I searched high and low for the perfect headpiece and birdcage veil, but could not find anything that was even close to what I wanted, until I found Viktoria's collection. As a budget conscious bride, I was concerned about price, but after meeting Viktoria and viewing all her beautifully made, detailed pieces in person I knew that investing in a quality piece was as important as buying the perfect dress. My headpiece and veil perfectly finished off my vintage inspired look and I have received so many compliments on it. I wish I could wear it every day! Viktoria's customer service was impeccable. I received an email response almost immediately to my initial inquiry, even though it was about 10pm at night!
When Viktoria encountered a design problem in making my piece, she contacted me immediately to let me know and adjusted the design to suit my requirements which she had taken the time to understand. I cannot recommend Viktoria more highly on design, attention to detail, quality and customer service. Don't consider buying a cheap piece online from overseas. Meet with Viktoria and support a local business and local designer and you will get the beautiful piece you want for your special day. Thank you so much Viktoria!
Clancie Hall, Sydney Bride, March 2013---
Nearly every bride pores over countless magazines gathering inspiration for how they want to look on their big day, and I was no different. I wanted something unique, not just a white dress and sparkly jewellery. I found a dress I loved, but it didn't feel complete, my vision of having that 'spunk' and individuality on my wedding day was not complete. I wanted a headpiece to stand out. One that had a bohemian feel and that was truly unique. The next 9 months whilst planning the wedding, I was surfing websites both internationally and in Australia for something that would settle my heart and make my bridal vision complete (I don't know how I did not come across your website in this time!) I even had my sister in Canada going through bridal magazines and emailing lists of milliners from the USA. Nothing. I had given up.
One month before the wedding, as I was mindlessly trolling through Facebook on a Saturday morning, I saw the icon for Viktoria Novak. I clicked on it. WOW. I clicked straight to your website. WOW. And then - I saw my head piece.
I was in such a hurry to email you that I had not even read anything on your site, I didn't know they were custom made or that each piece is delicately put together by hand and a one of a kind piece, or that the collection I was looking at hadn't even been announced yet ( I was sooo lucky! ) I just wanted to reach someone as quickly as I could to know if it was possible I could get that headpiece. Away my email went.
Within 10 minutes, you rang me. You actually RANG me. Of all the companies/people I contacted whilst planning my wedding (which was everyone from decorations, car hire, suite hire, florist, cake, venue etc. etc. via email) you were the only person whom immediately contacted me on the spot by phone - SO refreshing! And not only that, but I could tell you actually cared about the headpiece matching my dress, and that it was going to be what I wanted. You even requested I send a pic of the dress so you could ensure it would match, and you also sent some other pics to my phone of similar alternatives to make sure that I would be 100% happy. That really personalised my experience with you and made me really confident you were not just trying to make a sale. I ordered my headpiece and it arrived to me within a week!
Opening up the box containing my headpiece, I was so impressed with the love and delicacy how it was wrapped, the little thank you note, everything. And of course, the headpiece itself WOW. Exceeded my expectations completely. I didn't even want to touch it because it was so pretty ha-ha. I put it on, and instantly something in me just seemed complete. Not only did it perfectly match my dress, this was the 'spunk' I was looking for to complete my outfit. And for that settling feeling, I really can’t thank you enough.
I gave my veil away to a less fortunate bride. I will sell my dress. My wedding jewellery has been lent out to friends. All the decorations have been given away or donated to op-shops. But my headpiece, this will stay with me. I hope to give it to a daughter or daughter in law one day on her special day, and for it to be an heirloom in our family.
You really should feel proud, not only of your work, but of your business and your brand name Viktoria. You gave the best service out of anyone I booked or purchased from for our wedding. You obviously have not only knowledge but passion for the industry you are in. Your headpiece was the highlight of my outfit, and I still have people saying how unique and beautiful it was. I have and will keep on recommending you to anyone who is getting married. Thank you so much again!
Greta Holman, Adelaide Bride, February 2013---
Viktoria’s custom made bird cage veil is a piece of art and I love the fact I can use it over and over again! I told Viktoria what I wanted (I wasn’t 100% sure...but knew what I didn’t want!) and from this she managed to turn my concept into reality. What was created was something better than I could have imagined or possibly pictured. Professional, reliable and pleasure to work with I highly recommend Viktoria’s work.
Julia Warren-Nicholls, Sydney Bride, February 2013---
Viktoria was wonderful to work with in planning my wedding including helping me personalise my bridal hair piece, design my vintage bouquet and selecting my wedding jewellery. She took the time to get to know me and my vision for our wedding. Viktoria ensured I was happy with the final products and was generous with her time in making me feel confident in my choices. On our wedding day, everyone commented how beautiful her products were. A great experience, thank you.
Ainslee Scott, Sydney Bride, February 2013---
Viktoria, words can't thank you enough for creating my amazing hair piece, bouquets and buttonholes. I absolutely loved them and had so many beautiful complements. They sit as a masterpiece in my cabinet now and I just love looking at them. Thank you so much.
Zoe Veljanovski, Canberra Bride, January 2013---
I was extremely satisfied with my beautiful headpiece as were my bridesmaids. I have fine hair and thanks to Viktoria’s ingenuity it stayed in place without adjustment, for the whole day. Viktoria helped guide me through the design process and I was very happy with her recommendations. It was a wonderful contribution on my wedding day and something I can pass on in time to other members in my family.
Leah Widdup, Sydney Bride, January 2013---
Viktoria you are truly a legend. I'm so tempted to post a photo of my bouquet because I really want to show it off. Today was a very special day for me thanks to you. I cannot even begin to express how much I'm in love with my bouquet. I'm so blessed that I will be able to cherish this forever. If you're getting married look up Viktoria Novak, this girl has talent. Truly love your work Viktoria. Thank you once again xxxxx
Mon El Juri, Sydney Bride, January 2013---
Dear Viktoria, I just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful hair piece. I had been looking everywhere for a hair piece for my wedding, and then my wonderful hair and makeup artist suggested you. From the moment I looked at your website I was in love, so I sent off my enquiry form, & then a minute later you were calling my phone, and my appointment was booked, wow! I must say I am not used to such quick service :)
Arriving at your studio was like stepping into beautiful fantasy land, gorgeous hair pieces and jewellery everywhere! And the most stunning beaded lace table cloths! You made the whole appointment about me; you listened to me, looked at my ideas, and then brought out some of the most beautiful hair combs that I have ever seen for me to try on. I loved trying on the different styles to gauge what suited me and what didn't. But when you brought out an unfinished piece and pinned it on, I was in love, it was perfect! It was like you had started making it for me before we had even met.
I quite enjoyed the anticipation of not knowing what the end result would be, and I wasn't disappointed. My hair piece completed my wedding day out fit perfectly, in a way that no other piece would of, it received so many complements on the day. I can't believe how sentimental I feel about it now, I have considered having it framed, and I look forward to being able to pass it along to the next generation. I feel so proud to have worn an exclusive Viktoria Novak piece for my wedding, and tell everyone that will listen about your wonderful work. I love flipping through magazines and seeing your new work, and I know that you will go from strength to strength in your business, I wish you every luck for your future, I know there will be big things for you. With love
Kathryn, Bride, December 2012---
Dear Viktoria, I would like to express a special thank you to you for making my wedding on 15 December so special. The exceptional service that you provided in helping me choose the perfect headpiece was outstanding and extremely professional. You went above and beyond to accommodate my needs & indecisiveness :) I would definitely recommend your service to others. Thank you for making our day perfect Xx
Vivian Sarju, Bride, December 2012---
Dear Viktoria, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful headpiece for my wedding day. It looked amazing with my dress, it finished off the look so well. It was so special to me that you were able to incorporate my mum's veil in the design, I loved that I had a piece of her with me walking down the aisle. From start to finish you were so pleasant to deal with, I've already told loads of my friends about you, and won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the market looking for a beautifully designed and created headpiece or bouquet.
Joh McDiarmid, Bride, November 2012---
I bought my headpiece from Viktoria after visiting her exhibition stand at a bridal expo. I had initially gone to see Viktoria to talk about creating a headpiece, but after seeing her ready-made work I fell in love with one particular headpiece and had to have it. Viktoria happily adjusted the headpiece I purchased to perfectly complement my gown, in fact she even incorporated some of the lace from my dress into it. She was so incredibly easy to do business with, and the fact that she was interstate was no issue at all. Viktoria kept in contact with me via emails and sent photos of the additional pieces I was having made. Having seen her work I had no doubt they would be simply stunning - and they were! Thank you so much Viktoria for all your work, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone!
Emily Talsma, Bride, November 2012---
I just like to say thank you for my beautiful headpiece. The lace in my dress was quite unusual and I wasn't sure what I wanted other than perhaps a birdcage style headpiece. You helped create a vision for my piece that was beyond my expectations using the extra fabric from my dress, painstakingly cutting out each individual flower and piecing them together - your imagination was fantastic! I was also really impressed with your service, you took so much time in working with me to create something that suited me and my personality. From the sketches at the beginning, to the progress photos along the way and seeing the final creation, I felt involved throughout the whole process. This individualised consideration made me see how much you love what you do and this made me excited with you about seeing the final product! Even my mum was amazed when we came to your studio and she has been telling everyone how gorgeous your work is! Thank you once again for helping my day so special.
Natalie Nowlan, Bride, October 2012---
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my custom made Viktoria Novak hair piece. The whole experience of working with Viktoria was wonderful and I would and have recommended her to my family and friends. The whole process of designing the piece was very enjoyable. Viktoria listened to the style and look I wanted, and created a masterpiece that I will cherish forever! I have received so many compliments on my hair piece. I feel like it tied the whole look together on the wedding day and could not have done without it!!! I think it is very special what Viktoria does, in that she creates one-off items that are unique and special. I can't wait to make my next purchase!!!
Janja Bojanic, Bride, October 2012---
Viktoria Novak helped me try on a couple of different headpieces and they were all so beautiful. She also told me that something could be designed especially for me. Viktoria was very helpful in giving me support and advice during the process of styling my wedding. Once I had my dress and colour theme sorted, I took a trip to Viktoria's Sydney studio and we got planning. I tried on some headpieces until I found the one I liked, and when Viktoria arranged the blue tulle from my mother's wedding veil on the back of my headpiece I have to admit, there were tears of happiness!!! I looked at the bouquets next, and there was one that was perfect...
I asked Viktoria to add my grandmother's brooches and some tulle from my mother's veil to create the most perfect of bouquets! On the wedding day I received so many compliments, as a bride normally does, but there were so many specific compliments on my headpiece and bouquet, and how they suited my dress and my personality so well. I now get to keep my bouquet forever, as well as my headpiece, and now all I need is an excuse for my next Viktoria Novak creation! I do have one HUGE complaint about visiting the Viktoria Novak studio: it's such a horrible temptation! I want everything! And I swear if I win lotto I will spend the rest of my life wearing Viktoria Novak headpieces and I won't care what anyone says - hats are always appropriate!!!
Eleonor Geoghegan, Bride, October 2012---
From when I first met Viktoria at one of the Bridal expos I knew that I would have something special created for me for my big day. From the first consultation I knew I was in safe hands, from looking at pictures of my dress you instantly had great ideas, I really enjoyed working with you as you were able to sketch ideas of what could possibly work, without pushing on me a certain style or look that you thought I should wear. I really appreciated the collaborative approach. Throughout the making of my headpiece I was happy to get regular updates and even a sneaky work in progress picture, for me it was hard to picture the final piece even though I'd seen the sketches. I remember the moment we first put it on my head, pretty sure there was a tear!
It was just so perfect, and having the matching belt for the evening just pulled the whole outfit together and made dress perfect. I'm still amazed by the amount of work that you put into each design, I really feel as though I got great value for money for my one of a kind headpiece. The bead work, crystals and feathers were crafted together in such a delicate way, it was nice to see it was all hand stitched, and the quality of the crystals ensured that from all angels it caught the sun and just looked stunning on the day. My only problem now is that I want more occasions to wear your designs. Thanks again for everything, I am hopeful to have a need to come back and get another design for something special in the future!
Keiren Lawrence, Bride, September 2012---
Thank you for your amazing work on my headpiece, it was all I had imagined and more! I had met with a few other milliners and none took much interest in what I was looking for until I met with you. You created something unique and special for my wedding day. I hope that one day my daughter or even grand-daughter could wear it for their wedding.
Gina Huezo-Olmos, Bride, September 2012---
I saw Viktoria's work in a bridal magazine and I knew that I wanted her designs to be a feature in my upcoming wedding. I was planning on going to her studio and meeting with her and discussing what I wanted however, my fiancé and I changed our plans from a traditional wedding in several months’ time to eloping to the Old Treasury Building in Melbourne in several weeks’ time! I contacted Viktoria by email and to keep with the low key theme, asked her to design a bouquet. I also purchased one her gorgeous clutch bags for the big day. I never met Viktoria and I never ended up going to her studio. I never even spoke to her on the phone. I gave her a picture of the dress and told her via email what colours I would like. I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome!!! I get so many comments on the bouquet and it just matched perfectly for the day. Viktoria just understood what I wanted and what would suit the occasion and after eyeing off her work for months, I knew I didn't need to worry and that we were talking the same language. I would not hesitate to pass on Viktoria's name (and I actually have been to anyone asks me where I got the bouquet from) and I am thrilled I have this keepsake. Thank you again!
Heidi Burns-Anderson, Bride, August 2012---
Dear Viktoria, I am writing to say a big thank you for creating the most beautiful hairpiece for our wedding on 24 March 2012. It was just perfect and so many people commented on it. You created a style that really fit the day. It was also a lovely experience spending time with you, as evidenced by Mum, Erin and I spending almost two hours with you on that first day. You were so enthusiastic, warm and patient and we really appreciated your suggestions. I wish you all the very best in Sydney.
Kim Ralston, Bride, August 2012---
Viktoria designs amazing hair pieces. Once you see them you instantly want one, everything else is plain Jane! I couldn't miss out so I decided to take the drive to ACT to design my very own. She has since moved into a shop in Surry Hills... so ladies get yourself there!
Finau V, Bride, August 2012 (Score 5/5)---
Dear Viktoria, Thank you for creating the most beautiful, stunning and exquisite bridal headpiece for my special day! It was the perfect finishing touch to my look, and perfectly complemented my gown, veil and hairstyle. Your attention to detail is amazing and it is an item I will treasure for the rest of my life. Your service was excellent and working with you was a breeze, which meant that the headpiece was one less thing that I had to stress about in the lead up to the wedding. You have a wonderful talent for millinery, styling and makeup and I will happily recommend you to all my engaged friends. All the best with continuing your business in Sydney. Although I'm sad you are no longer in the Canberra region, I can see your business will boom with a bigger client base. I'll definitely keep following you on FB, simply because I love seeing all your beautiful creations. Best wishes x
Samantha Gray-Barry, Bride, June 2012---
From the moment Viktoria welcomed me into her studio and showed me her gorgeous creative headpieces, I knew she'd be the perfect artist to bring my extravagant "Pirate" Wedding to life. With her friendly enthusiastic manner, Viktoria was great to talk to about designs and she quickly came up with some fun ideas for a "Pirate Queen" headpiece. Her final design was exquisite and so much fun to wear - it made me want to strut along the decks and lord it over my scurvy crew. I never wanted to take the headpiece off! Viktoria's makeup work was also finely detailed and beautifully styled to our theme. She was completely professional in her manner, always considerate and mindful of our time constraints. Hiring her was one of the best things I did for my wedding, and her input turned our photo-shoot into a series of masterpieces I'll always treasure. Thank you so much!
Katie Ryan, Bride, April 2012---
Viktoria made a beautiful headpiece to match my wedding dress in colour and style for me. She incorporated the ideas I had in my head and made them even better. She had only seen photos of the dress and had only a small piece of fabric to work with. As I do not live in Canberra she did a great job communicating with me through emails, text messages and photos. The finished product was simply stunning and exactly what I had envisaged...
Melanie, Bride, December 2011---
To say I was excited to receive my hand-made Viktoria Novak headpiece for my wedding day would be an understatement. It was the final piece I was waiting for before I knew my wedding day was around the corner. I opened the box with pure excitement to find my breathtaking headpiece which was more than I could have imagined. Viktoria really listened to my vision for the wedding and designed the headpiece to really suit my dress and personality. I left the creative design in her very capable hands and was blown away with not only her design, but her professionalism, her constant communication on how the design was progressing and how quickly it was completed. I was so impressed with her work I also had a headpiece designed and created by Viktoria for my mother on our wedding day, and also for a racing event... To say I love Viktoria Novak's headpieces would be an understatement as I would wear one to every event! Thank you Viktoria you really did an amazing job!
Gabriella Vieira, Bride, May 2011---
Viktoria made me a fascinator that perfectly matched my dress, from the style and colours, down to the materials. I had a vintage looking dress and from her amazing array of materials she pulled out the exact shade of pink feather to match the pink in my dress, and a material with the same pleats as my dress! It was spot on. She also did make up for me, my sister and my sister-in-law. She listened to what I wanted (which was not too much makeup) and I was really comfortable with the result. I loved the false eyelashes! Thanks Viktoria. All the best with your business.
Jess Hughes, Happy Bride, March 2011---
Viktoria was amazing to work with. Within a very tight time-frame, she went out of her way to create a unique fascinator for an event that I had been invited to attend. Viktoria has a sharp eye for detail and creative flair, and managed to work with my existing accessories and budget to transform my look into something I could never have put together alone. On the day of the event, I received so many positive comments on both my outfit and fascinator. Viktoria is extremely professional, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to any prospective clients. I am definitely planning to wear a Viktoria Novak Design piece again in the future - they are unlike anything else found in Canberra, so I can be sure that I will stand out wearing them!
Tara Collins, Client, May 2010---
Viktoria you are an amazing designer, stylist and woman. I can never truly thank you enough for what you created for my wedding day. It was out of this world. You incorporated everything I desired and it flowed through to the theme of my wedding effortlessly. I felt like a goddess in your piece and I loved the fact that you were able to incorporate features of my wedding dress into my fascinator. The materials and craftsmanship of the piece was outstanding ... your creative mind is a rare gem. You are going places my girl and I can't wait to see your collections on the Paris and New York runway, or even on the next Sex and the City Movie! You also have an incredible eye for makeup. I could not have asked for anything better on my wedding day; your work on myself and my four bridesmaids was flawless. I felt like I walked straight out of a Hollywood movie. Your attention to detail and the ability to make all of us look our absolute best is second to none. Thank you!
Erin Hayes, Bride, March 2010
