I am so very grateful Christine. When I contacted you last March I was in despair thinking I would never find ‘my’ perfect dress. After several emotional and negative experiences in bridal dress shops I didn’t think I would find the dress that was right for me but then there was you!
I met you at a wedding fair and amongst all of the other dress exhibitors I knew you were the one for me! You put me at ease, you did not judge or tell me I had to settle for ‘what would fit’ like many others did. You allowed me to have/enjoy the experience I had always dreamt of by giving me time, understanding, patience and support which at times was above and beyond what you had signed up for! I value your knowledge, experience and above all your honesty. You knew exactly what would suit my body shape, complexion and work best for my special day. You enabled me to see beyond the initial stages of fabric swatches and countless magazine images I had collected. With a gentle nudge in the right direction from time to time you helped me to feel happy, confident and above all beautifully fantastic in ‘my’ stunningly awesome dress.
From the first meeting you knew exactly what was in my head, this is a true skill and talent. You always went the extra mile from driving to various hotels and friends houses for dress fittings to the countless alterations to answering your phone to me at 8pm the week before my wedding and reassuring and supporting me during my last minute wedding wobbles.
I will always be thankful for meeting you as you designed and made me a dress which felt like a part of me. It’s sad that this experience is over for me now but I will cherish my dress and the memories I have of wearing it and I very much look forward to following your journey making other people’s dreams come true! All good things for the future, much love, Laura xx
So happy with the dress! Thanks so much for all your beautiful work!
I had the most wonderful day thanks to you. So many people said I looked ‘radiant’ – that’s a first! Such a lovely dress and perfect for my Cornish wedding!
I felt like a film star in my dress. It fitted me perfectly. Thank you so much Christine! Xx
Just a note to say thank you for my beautiful wedding gown. The personal attention and the “Nothing too much trouble” attitude made the whole experience a dream. From the minute I came to see you to my wedding day you looked after me all the way, with love.
Just a little note to say thank you so much for my dress, it was perfect in every way. I knew that trying to find an ‘alternative’ wedding dress off the peg would be difficult. You were brilliant and gave me exactly the dress I wanted. I really appreciated your kind and thoughtful advice. Emma
I wanted a beautiful dress for my wedding that I could wear more than once. Christine made me a dress with a classical design that is elegant, fits perfectly and above all I feel fantastic when I wear it. The fabric she chose drapes beautifully and the colour is stunning. The dress originally had a short train for the wedding, which was later shortened so I can wear it as a maxi-dress. I have worn it several times since and look forward to wearing it on many more occasions.
I was planning for my wedding and wanted my dress to be in my favourite colour, purple. This was not something readily available in most bridal shops so when my acupuncturist told me about Christine making the most amazing bespoke dresses I had to contact her.
When I first went to see Christine I had a set idea of exactly what it was I wanted, a tightly corseted nymph-like fairy dress. Christine showed me a portfolio of work she had completed which all looked beautiful and elegant. Christine herself was warm, welcoming and made me feel at ease. We worked out how to deliver my vision and then within approximately six weeks I announced I was pregnant and the original design became obsolete. It was at this point that Christine’s professionalism really came in to it’s own. I was floundering about what it was I wanted, all I knew was it had to be purple.
Christine came up with many ideas and suggestions about possible designs, all the while remembering that I would be changing shape massively over the next four months. Christine worked magic delivering our vision despite constant alterations due to my expansion and mood swings. She sourced all the materials to be approved prior to use, dyed some lace so it would exactly match the colour of the other fabrics and even painstakingly sewed tiny beads onto the lace. Her attention to detail is fantastic and my dress is exquisite. I would have no hesitation in recommending Christine to anyone; she is quite simply amazing.
