Press & Awards
What is your most memorable wedding?
Most memorable wedding so hard to choose. I think my son's wedding a day full of love, fun and laughter, the happy couple were so relaxed and happy it made for a completely memorable day, I stitched, flower arranged and decorated cakes hard work but it was so worth it. I have worked on Celebrity Wedding Planner and the moment a bride steps into a dress chosen for her is nerve racking.

Remember in all the planning stress why you are marrying each other, its your love that counts. Don't worry about anything going wrong your guests won't notice if you are enjoying fun filled loving day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The groom auntie had died; A surprise 5 tier wedding cake was made from auntie's recipes, each tier a different flavour; the guest gift was boxes to take cake home, printed with Eat Cake & Celebrate cakes inspired by Auntie Jean's Recipes. The bride and groom were reduced to happy tears.

I offer a friendly service whether it is to design a headdress or complete outfit. I chat with brides to find out lots about their wedding and their desired look; I have lots of samples, materials and trims in the studio to help a bride choose. Once we have agreed on the design details I provide a no obligation quote. Once a bride is happy I accept a 50% deposit and arrange fittings. Final payment is made on the last fitting.
