A few times a year, I have the privilege of designing bridal gowns for my special clients. The process of helping to deliver their vision of their wedding day has always given me a feeling of elation, and the amazing connection I have with the bride is always strong in my heart. I made my first bridal gown for a client at age 17 while working for Deon’s Bridal, and I still experience the same energy and exhilaration now.

Vanessa has been a client of mine for many years, and to have the opportunity to contribute to her special day was such an honour. Heather – my incredible workroom manager – and I created a stunning full-length ivory sequin gown with 3/4 length lace sleeves and a delicate neckline hand-beaded with glass and crystal beads. The look was classic and elegant, and suited her style and beautiful personality perfectly.
