Lisa and Mark’s Medieval Wedding, 20th July 2013
I first went to Kelly with a low quality image of a dolls paper wedding dress and scarcely any ideas about bridesmaid dresses for my medieval wedding. Kelly, very carefully and creatively guided me through the whole process and helped me to discover exactly what I wanted. I really valued her knowledge and advice on which fabrics would suit the theme, wouldn’t crease and would hang beautifully and her attention to the details that tied it all together. She has a great eye for colour and helped to find the exact shade we wanted for the bridesmaids.
No challenge is too big for Kelly. Despite my last minute decision to have an embroidered trim around the whole of my dress less than two weeks before the wedding and one of my bridesmaids falling pregnant soon after the fitting, giving birth just two months before the wedding, Kelly took it all in her stride and was a calming presence throughout. I can’t speak highly enough of Kelly’s work; all four dresses were perfect and created exactly the medieval faerie feel we were looking for, but without Kelly would never have found.
Caroline and Michaels Wedding, 27th July 2012
It can be daunting having items of such importance made without seeing the product first, and I must say the bridesmaids were slightly apprehensive of my decision. Kelly’s approach to the design, fittings and positive nature just made the whole process effortless.
Seeing the dresses complete for the first time exceeded all expectations. The quality of her work is just fantastic. It is so exciting to see such talent come from a local university. With Kelly’s approach, attention to detail and natural ability with people, I am sure she will have a very good career, and I wish her every success. My only regret is not meeting her sooner, as I would have every faith in her making my wedding dress!
