“Dear Carina, Louise and team,
I can’t believe that over a month has passed since James and my big day, but having settled back into life from our whirlwind celebrations I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so very much for all your help and support in choosing and fitting my beautiful Suzanne Neville ‘Ivy’ gown.
I was so nervous about choosing a dress I could feel a pretty, confident, elegant and sparkly version of myself in, but from the moment I stepped into the boutique last year I felt in safe hands. Swept up by Carina’s thoughtful enthusiasm, experience and insight into how I might choose from such an array of stunning gowns it was easier than anyone who knows me would have thought! I had never really dared to envisage what I would go for, but with your help and gentle guidance it was obvious when we found ‘the one’ and I really don’t think it could have been more perfect.
Louise, your talent in tweaking and adjusting it while seamlessly smoothing my pre wedding anxt in our fittings was so so reassuring. I am quite in awe of how you managed to get it to fit so beautifully. Thank you so much!
We’ve recently had our photographs back from the ever so talented Louise at Taylor and Porter so I thought you might like to see some – and hope you will love them as much as we do!
It really was the most magical day – though it was bitterly cold and absolutely poured with rain for most of it (so hope you can excuse the bridal grab and go creases in my train!) the weather broke just in time for us to have photos outside the beautiful backdrop of Boconnoc. I remember Carina telling me that I would need my dress to stand up to the grandeur of the venue and James and his dashing uniformed entourage…and I hope you’ll agree that it did just that 😉
With bestest wishes and love to all,
