Frequently Asked Questions
What is your most memorable wedding?
I would have to say my own wedding to my amazing husband
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Never forget that it is about the two of you sharing your love and commitment to each other. You are the two most important people and everything else is just stuff.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The process starts with a free 2hour consultation to talk about your special occasion and come up with a design. Then a trial garment is made for fittings before the real dress is cut and made from your chosen fabric.
What do you love most about your job?
Every day and every job is different. I love being able to bring a brides dreams to life in her perfect gown.
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
Being a designer and maker it is difficult to have a favourite one as I love so many different styles
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
If you are a traditional bride have a blue bow sewn into the dress. A slightly more brave option is if your dress has a net petticoat have blue satin binding sewn to the edge. If you are really brave enough then have the dress made from blue fabric with an ivory lace overlay or ivory fabric with a blue lace overlay.
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
Other than mine and my Mum's. It would have to be Princess Margaret's
