Founder & Creative Director of Jessica Couture
Jessica Wu is a luxury bridal designer catering to brides all over the world. Arriving in New Zealand at a young age, Jessica started her career in IT, but it wasn't long before she followed her love and passion for designing after struggling to find her dream dress.
In 2004, Jessica Bridal was born.
With a passion to help brides bring their dreams to life and to create timeless memories, the business has grown from a humble little bridal shop in Kingsland to an international business with her products stocked in bridal boutiques all over the world.
