What about your business are you most proud of?
The feedback we get from customers about our service - it makes me want to cry with pride every time.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Stick to your budget - as a whole - now that doesn't mean that you can't be lavish with some things - as long as you can pull it back somewhere else. And accept help when offered - I see to many stressed out brides that want to do it all and then end up not enjoying the run up to their day as much as they should.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Gosh so many - but I love it when the bride has a photograph of a lost loved one on her bouquet in a small locket - I always feel that they are walking down the aisle with them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We want every bride we meet to feel like she is the only bride we know. At LWD we only ever have one bride in our boutique at any one time - now that 's not because we don't have the space - it's just so that we can totally understand her wants and needs. It's a big thing selecting your gown and we take it as an honour that the bride has chosen us. We welcome the bride and her family to out boutique, offer refreshments and then we get down to business ..
I do like to get to know the bride and am quite nosy - I like to understand her style... what she likes and dislikes.
We then go around the boutique and chose half a dozen dresses that you like the look of and we then go try them on ... that's when the fun really starts !!
What do you love most about your job?
When you know its "The One" before the bride does - and then her face when she realises ... its a special moment.
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
I truly love most gowns. - but an elegant a line gown looks amazing.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
Often there is a little blue bow sewn into your wedding gown,
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
I absolutely love Grace Kelly's dress - so classic and regal
