…The one element of the whole wedding that I was the most nervous about was finding the dress. After a couple of false starts with other stores and designers, I came for an appointment at Hera Couture with my sister and from the moment we arrived, it was wonderful.
You and your team were incredible – listening to my wishlist, understanding the elements which were important and being totally sensitive to my nervousness about choosing “the” dress…
…As a result, after about 20 dresses and a few paper cups of not quite cold champagne provided by my sister (!) you suggested I try on something a little different and the dress was found. The beautiful Lavant gown in blush was almost perfect and you were amazing in suggesting the customisation to make it so.
Fittings were a so much fun with your amazing advice and great sense of humour; and the final result was stunning….
…On my wedding day I felt like a princess and it fit me like a glove. Everyone commented on how beautiful the dress was and Leighton was blown away.
Thank you so very much for your beautiful creation, for you advice and confidence-boosting and for making the entire process a real pleasure. I will tell everyone to come and see you first when they begin their search!
