“I would like to say a few words about the beautiful wedding dress Simon designed for me, he kindly took charge after my hopeless attempts to find a dress for my wedding which was fast approaching. I had not met Simon before, but his ease and kindness immediately made me feel completely relaxed about the process and the whole dress design took on a wonderful and exciting mood.
Having listened to my hopes as to the style of the dress he sketched a plan for the design, and had a toile (which is a first make of the dress in a rough fabric) made to get the shape and design right before cutting into the silk. I have to say when I put on the toile I loved it, the shape was gorgeous and made me feel so elegant. The cut was also completely complimentary to my shape.
He then threw a wild card into the mix and suggested a fall of pearls running down my back, he promptly had the dress made up in the real silk and we hung the pearls across the shoulders of the dress. It was fabulous! An ingenious idea that gave the dress a wonderful movement with this gorgeous sparkle across the back.
The silk he had chosen to make the dress had a wonderful weight so the skirt spun out and felt spectacular to wear.
So the final treat was the morning of my wedding when I woke up to put the dress on, all I can say is it was magical and kept me lifted for the whole day. Completely comfortable to wear, so that I was able to let my hair down and dance and not once worry about the dress apart from feeling amazing.
Simon thank you so much, you were completely fabulous and you made me a piece of magic for my wedding day.”
