What is your most memorable wedding?
The one we did for a customer who had 4 bridesmaids, and five changes of outfit during the day, and had forgotten about headpieces until 13 days before her wedding. We managed to rush around for the the next 10 days, and delivered the whole order to her home, 2 days before the wedding, immensely proud of ourselves for managing to meet an almost, impossibly tight deadline. The bride was happy too!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
We greet them and ask a few questions about their wedding date, the dress, and what they are looking for . We move onto specifics, asking what the bride has in mind for both her hairstyle and her headpiece. Then we move onto trying different styles on, usually with a veil if that is appropriate. Throughout it all, we chat and build up a relationship with the client.
