"There is not just one quality of a wedding that I love, I love everything from working with a bride on her first visit, to our visits and planning in between, to the day when I help her carry her gown to the car. I am honoured to be a part of the process of finding their perfect dress and being more than just a consultant. Sometimes when I am lacing or zipping up a gown, I know it is the dress! It is the look on their face, the twinkle in their eyes, the way they sway or the goose bumps that appear when they see themselves in the mirror. I love the whole process and through it all I am here to answer any questions, to give any support and to share any worries and joys every day!"
