What is your most memorable wedding?
My own! I had a beautiful dress and my wonderful husband , family and friends to celebrate with us. Brides worry about things that can go wrong but most guests don’t notice those little things they’re too busy having fun!

What about your business are you most proud of?
Our customer service and a wonderful dress. I consider it a privilege to be part of a brides story. I love meeting their family and friends and hearing about all the exciting plans they have, I think I have the best job but maybe I am biased! 😊
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don’t stress about the small things, most people don’t notice and delegate anything you can . People love to be involved in part of your day and it makes it very special.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My husband had a tiny photo of his father who was no longer with us printed on his cuff links at our wedding.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
At the appointment you will get to try on samples in the boutique . You may love a dress with short sleeves but love a sleeve on a different dress . As a toile, a mock dress in calico is made before your actual dress changes can be made so you really get a dress with all the elements you love and which bring out the best in you. You are able to choose a different colour or fabric too. You would then usually have 2 or 3 fittings depending on the style. Alternatively we can make a completely bespoke dress from an image or photo and source fabrics too. As your gown is made for you there are no extra alteration costs.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting the brides and hearing about their plans for the day. I am very lucky to have photos sent to me from the day and seeing their final dream come true . 💕
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
I love working with lace , ultimately my aim is to always enhance the brides best points.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
I love to stitch a tiny blue rose on the hem if the bride doesn’t already have something.
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
I don’t think I could choose one dress but love Marchesa for all the romance.
