The Fascinator Sally created for my mum at my wedding...
The Fascinator Sally created for my mum at my wedding finished off her outfit perfectly and was admired by friends and family throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble for sally and the personal service and attention she gave to my mum was very welcome. I would highly recommend sally and I know my family will definately be using her services in the future.

I approached Sally to make a headpiece for my wedding...
I approached Sally to make a headpiece for my wedding. After seeing some of her work I knew it would be every bit the perfect and unique accessory that I was looking for. I showed Joanne some ideas for what I had in mind and instantly she came up with a design. She even contacted the dress supplier so she could get the exact lace to match my dress. The final headpiece was something truly unique, designed and created to such high standards and so beautifully matched to my dress.

Sally made me a stupendous hat for Ascot last year...
Sally made me a stupendous hat for Ascot last year so when it came to choosing someone to make my bridal headpiece I knew straight away who to ask. Her attention to detail and ability to make an idea come to life is brilliant. the materials used are so varied and not always what you would think would work - she certainly knows her stuff!

Sally is the best person in the world to make a bride look her best. I will only use Sally for every function I need in the future. As my bridal headpiece she made me was absolutely stunning!

I cannot tell you how thrilled both my mum...
I cannot tell you how thrilled both my mum and I were with our hat/tiara that sally created. I was hugely impressed by the efforts she went to in order to try and obtain the quite tricky colour and how she interpreted my somewhat loose design ideas. Not living very close to Solihull, being able to work the design with her using facebook and phone was fantastic and thus only required a preliminary discussion and a final approval on collection.
