What a busy last few months it’s been! I’ve realised it’s been weeks since I had the chance to share any of my lovely recent brides!! Well today is the day for a little share of one of my recent custom gowns.  Jacquie was after something a little special and unique for her wedding dress, without it being over the top.  It was also important for her that it was a dress that she could have the option to wear… Read more »
