Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?
Our Facebook page is covered in testimonials and photos from our beautiful Brides and it speaks for itself.
Tell us what inspires you. Any websites, people or companies that you follow?
My Brides inspire me. New fashion inspires me, beautiful Chantilly Lace, Chiffon, Silk and Swarovski Crystals inspire me….
I don’t take too much notice of who follows us on Social Media although those things are great. What I do take notice of are the expressions, giggles, joy and shwooshing…. (when she has found THE ONE) that is what motivates and inspires me most.
Any upcoming wedding trend forecasts?
Ummm. Interesting one….
I think we are in such an exiting time when it comes to trends in our industry. I would say, on the one hand authentic, raw, individual tastes and textures and on the other feminine, unique, soft, with lots of lace or even simple classic satin styles. So exiting. Never boring!
What advice would you give Brides- and/or Grooms-to be?
Enjoy every moment.
Explore your options.
Stay true to yourself.
