What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was set in stunning Santorini, the setting was exquisite, an incredible sea view with the warm sun shining over the wedding ceremony. The bride wore a beautiful understated chiffon gown and the groom wore a smart suite. The evening wedding party was lit by the incredible sunset and scattered candles. It was a beautiful intimate wedding, close family and friends.

I really enjoyed the guest place cards, each card had a sentimental fact about bride and grooms relationship, i.e how they met, their most memorable moment etc...
Describe your typical process with a couple.
It is usually the bride who comes into the shop and describes their wedding gown and how it fits in with the style of the couples wedding. I will then recommend lots of stunning pieces of jewellery that will compliment her gown. It is always wonderful to own a piece of jewellery that not only can be worn on her wedding day but also on special occasions to remember the wonderful memories. The fiance may also want to come into the shop on a separate occasion to choose a piece of jewellery that the bride can wear for the evening section of the wedding or during their honeymoon as an extra surprise.
