Stunning bride Kate and her new hubby tied the knot in December last year in a glamorous ceremony with an industrial edge.
After trying on an incredible 150 dresses before coming in to see us, Kate had almost given up trying to find a dress! It's not surprising she felt quite stressed and wasn't enjoying her experience but I'm pleased to say that all changed when she walked into our boutique.
"Alexia was so warm and welcoming, she took time to listen to my ongoing saga, even getting to know me a little before proceeding to make recommendations. I felt so comfortable and at ease, it was how wedding dress shopping should be…a wonderful experience!"
Kate had in her mind she was looking for a Boho style dress, however that all changed the minute she tried on the Cheryl dress.
"When Alexia suggested it at the beginning I said no as I was thinking I wanted something more bohemian, and when she suggested it a second time I said no again. On the third suggestion, she convinced me by saying she really felt it would flatter my figure and I would look amazing in it. Because we had got on so well and I trusted her, I said yes. And of course, she was right, after trying on around 150 dresses I had found the one. It was a testament to her experience to be able to look at me and actually know my style better than I did! I should have listened to her sooner. I felt drop dead gorgeous in it!!! Like a Hollywood film star. Damn I LOVED it!"
Reading those words in Kate's email made my heart soar. She looked epic but, more importantly, she felt epic. And that's why I do what I do...
Huge congratulations to the happy couple. We wish you every happiness in your new lives together.
