FAQ

What do you love most about your job?
I definitely love the experience of helping someone look and feel beautiful on such a special day. Seeing the joy on their face when they find their dream dress then working with them right through their emotional journey to the big day is so rewarding. Knowing that you have had a small but key part in making someone’s wedding day that extra bit special is a huge thrill. I get really involved with our brides and enjoy using my years of experience as a wedding organiser to help them through the minefield of organising such a big day. It’s a huge honour that someone trusts you enough to put the most important dress of their life in your hands. Some of my local Brides still pop in for coffee when they are passing, it feels like they have become part of the Brides of Winchester family! I always go home at the end of the day with a big smile on my face especially if I’ve been sitting with a bride, and sometimes her groom, looking at the photos of their day.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
