Light Rail Construction

UPDATE 24/05/2018 - Hunter Street will now be open between Auckland Street and Merewether Street from Friday 25th of May 2018. This means that there will no longer be anymore roadworks right in front of Belles and Beaux. We still recommend to allow plenty of time to find parking as there are still other ongoing Light Rail constructions in the Newcastle area. The best parking suggestion we can recommend is the car park on Wright Lane near the Civic Train Station. If you park near the station you can walk on through it, leading you to Hunter Street where it's just a 100 metre walk to the shop.

Due to the construction of the Light Rail in Newcastle, there are currently ongoing road works and changed traffic conditions on Hunter Street. This may cause some difficulty in getting to us and finding a parking space near so we have provided a map to show where and when all the construction works are happening. If you book an appointment please allow plenty of time to find parking and to account for extra traffic. We are so sorry for any inconveniences.

Owner Elizabeth Monie

In 1989 Belles and Beaux ' The Bridal Specialists' was established with business partner Angela Nicholson. Elizabeth comes from a background in fashion having owned and operated Libby's Boutique which was in Hunter Street Newcastle in the early 70's. Elizabeth also has a background in accountancy which together is a good combination to running a successful business.

In 2006 Elizabeth became the sole owner of Belles and Beaux after buying out her business partner Angela who was leaving the Newcastle area to relocate to Taree. In that same year Elizabeth was struck down with leukamia, (APML) and went on a clinical trial, and thanks to Professor Rowlings and the wonderful staff at the hematology ward at the Mater hospital, to this day she is still in remission. Elizabeth had to have 2 years off work and during that time Michelle O'Connor was manageress and the wonderful staff at Belle's and Beaux kept the business going for her. Apart from the wonderful care Elizabeth received from The Mater, Elizabeth constitutes her good health now to the pleasure she gets from overseeing her business and making sure all her customers have the most wonderful experience choosing their wedding gown at Belles and Beaux.
"I was so happy with my appointment and the incredible staff who were absolutely lovely and accomodating. They have an excellent range in plus size dresses which was fantastic and allowed me to choose my style that best suited my body type. I loved my experience and couldn't recommend them enough!"
