'Turquoise and purple Queen' , Nov-2011'

Angela had an original design made, inspired by the Dragonfly Queen gown. Made up in turquoise silk, with turquoise swarovski crystal decoration on the front of the hourglass corset, and purple and turquoise ribbon lacing at the back . With a bolero jacket with fitted long laced up sleeves, lined in purple silk, and a full ball gown skirt, which whist very long, was also able to bustle up. Below is Angela with her ever so cute as a button Granddaughter, (and husband!).

'Thank you :)

I have directed so many people to your website - your photos show my dress perfectly :)

I actually don't know how to start thanking you Janice, your beautiful creation totally made the day, it blew EVERYONE away - i wanted a WOW factor dress but even I was completely overwhelmed by the truly beautifulness of it. I heard whispers as i walked down the aisle, lots of wow's and i heard a 'thats a stunning dress' (no idea who said it tho haha). Total strangers in the town stopped their everyday shopping, as is usual with a wedding but i heard so many gasps and 'oh wows' it was beginning to feel like i was a minor celebrity - and i totally loved it of course lol when we got to the reception venue even staff commented on it. At breakfast the next morning a lady came up to and said she just had to tell my dress was the most amazing she had seen - she was in the foyer when our guests arrived and heard them talking about this awesome dress so she she waited in the reception desk area to see it and she said she was gobsmacked at the beauty of it (and me) - and she just had to tell me - 
I felt beautiful in my dress and it fitted perfectly - not once did i tug anything, pull anything up or down, not once did i feel it was too loose or too tight, i in many ways felt like i was wearing nothing ;)

I wanted as i said a wow factor dress, i wanted Paul to be wow'd by it, but never did i expect him to be so speechless, he was like goldfish - opening and closing his mouth - when i reached his side, in fact he just kept looking at me with his eyes full of tears - he said afterwards he just couldn't express how beautiful he thought i looked, nor how beautiful my dress was.
I had my wobbles as you know, could i pull a dramatic dress such as this off? Once i was in your workshop, once i tried my dress on each time those wobbles vanished, and then my dress was hanging in my spare room and i never had a wobble - all i needed to do was peak at it and i just knew it was MY dress :)
Remember my tears? Tears of OMG i cannot believe this is my dress, tears of i didn't think i could be made to look this beautiful - even now as i write this to you i can remember the feeling i had and i feel myself welling up at thought of when you turned me to the mirror for me to see myself in my complete ensemble (minus hat lol) for first time - it blew me away but i knew than i COULD pull it off. 
The colour was just perfect for me, and so many people who are friends of friends have commented (on Facebook where else lol) on the perfectness of the colour.

The photographer commented it was an amazing dress, the vicars words - 'what a dress'- these guys see loads of weddings but my dress made a big impact on them.

You go over and above the normal customer services, nothing is ever too much trouble. Just having you in my room felt like my own little piece of calmness in a sea of stress (downstairs) Helping my daughters into their dress - not part of your role but something you were more than happy to do for us - all made for a calm get ready which reflected in photos and in the day - i knew my dress was perfect and so nothing else mattered and it all just fell into place.

I shall miss coming to see you, but i shall keep watching your website and wish you so much luck with everything for your future

Thank you are 2 very small words but in this instance they have so much resting on them, you and your gorgeous creation truly made my wedding the perfect day that it was so Janice Thank You from the bottom of my heart x x '
