'we had a few run through before the big day and even enlisted the help of the best man.. who did it up way too tightly and there was too much unfortunate boobage!! Sarah just couldn't get her head round the logic of the ribbons in the end... so i got my mum and sis to help and between them they did a grand job, mum trained as a seamstress many many many years ago, so she's good at that kinda stuff! looking back at the pics i realise that they left my skirt a bit too high at the front.. but that's kinda cools because you get to see my shoes :P '

'Thank you soo much once again for your help and guidance, the dress was perfect and made me feel the best ive ever felt in any item of clothing! I truly believe i had such a good relaxed day because i was not worried about how i looked so i could just get on and enjoy the day! The dress was heavily admired by all and even our DJ said that i looked like a mermaid that had just walked out of the Cypriot sea! Seeing as we were going for a sea theme, as you can imagine i was over the moon with her comment! Thank you so much once again for making a dream come true as i have been visiting your site for over 4 years now hoping that one day i may also feature in your real brides section! like i said before the photos do not do your dresses the justice they truly deserve, you are truly talented! Thank you! '
