For someone who doesn't often wear dresses....
Thank you so much for creating my beautiful wedding dress. For someone who doesn't often wear dresses and very rarely white 'I felt fabulous! ' The amount of people who commented that the dress was "just Katie" was unbelievable and it was just what I wanted. The whole experience having a couture made by yourself and your team is one I will never forget. Your bridal emporium was just unbeatable! Your creativity and attention to details is just what I needed and your ability to change anything at the last minute (sleeves!!) made the experience so much more comfortable. Thank you all so much! Lots of love Katie xx

I never thought anybody would comment on how tiny my waist is....
Thank you so much for my beautiful dress - it surpasses all my expectations. Brian was so proud of me and I like to thank you and all your staff for giving me confidence. I never thought anybody would comment on how tiny my waist is and I feel so much better about myself than I did at the beginning of this adventure.

Once again apologies and the biggest THANK YOU ever. Love PS Charlotte and Hattie looked beautiful, the whole day was perfect. x
