Maaike Elise Stofferis is Maison M’Elise’s designer and she has been in the wedding business for more than ten years creating custom haute couture gowns and red carpet dresses. Due to her international upbringing, she is culturally curious and literate and has a warm inviting attitude towards all traditions. Her aim is to dress women from all over the world with beauty and integrity. She believes that many women today still share the desire to exchange vows and rings, but also want to choose more freely in what feels right for them in proclaiming their love. Our Truly Love Me dresses give such occasions a unique and personal dimension to your wedding day or party.
At Maison M’Elise we can truly make anything your heart desires and if you are looking for something truly unique that no one else has, you are at the right address. We are also specialised in creating gowns that reflect your cultural identity and can mix western-styles with your traditional gown if you wish. To start the process we have an initial consultation, followed up by several fittings leading up to your special day.
At Maison M´Elise we design bespoke jewelry. Our design team aims to reflect on the love between you and your betrothed, creating real heritage pieces. For these exceptional works of art, our team collaborates with the very best local goldsmiths that use responsible fair gold, silver, and certified gemstones. Our jewelry pieces are called “fair” because they are certified by the Responsible Jewelry Council. This organization strives for fair trade, human rights, good working conditions, and a good price for the workers. The Responsible Jewelry Council requires that the gold mining take the environment into account and to ensure that human rights are not violated. In addition, the gold may not come from conflicted areas.
Have you had a good look on our website and really liked the joy and ease of the images within? Maaike Elise Stofferis has a great flair for bringing creative people together and always works with the same photographers, Maria and Cristian. Together they create a great atmosphere on-camera and off during a shoot. For them it’s very important that the people portrayed in the photos come across as open, welcoming, and as natural as possible. If you’d like to add a little extra spark or mysticism to your wedding memories, or you would like to plan a romantically-styled shoot, don’t hesitate to contact us below.
Our unique lace is developed at the Museum in Tilburg on the embroidery machines with sustainable yarns. We are proud to manufacture sustainable, storytelling lace in the Netherlands, inspired by our brides’ specific background and heritage. After your wedding day your gown might not be worn again, but you may not want to part with it either. To encourage environmental friendliness, Mansion M’Elise offers a circular solution to give your wedding dress a second life. We can transform your lace gown into a beautiful modern painting or create a stunning crib for your newborn.
We have different services from which to choose from: full wedding planning, partial wedding planning, one-day wedding management, and destination weddings. At the initial consultation, we will really get the chance to learn about your ideas and desires for your wedding and any particular style you have in mind. We will then use our experience, contacts, creativity, and planning skills to make it all come together to create the wedding of your dreams! Consultations and appointments will be made at your convenience only, choosing the best suppliers we feel are right for your wedding. Contact us for our different price ranges and packages.
