Joni’s Story

“It was a truly collaborative process and Jenny made me a dress that I was just delighted with.”


“Having had a rather dispiriting, if not distressing, experience in a designer bridal shop, I turned to friends for recommendations for a dressmaker and Jenny’s name popped up. And thank the lord it did!

From the first meeting to the last fitting, Jenny was just great. She listened, doodled, questioned, suggested, rifled through her many boxes of wonderful trimmings, listened some more and sent me her ideas. After a couple of shared Pinterest pictures she brought together the different bits I’d had in my head but had been unable to really visualise myself and absolutely nailed the design.

 

Then came the fittings, where we batted ideas back and forth, tried different lengths and sleeves and bits of lace out and generally finessed until we were both happy. It was a truly collaborative process and Jenny made me a dress that I was just delighted with.

She’s also an amazing fount of knowledge and wisdom on all sorts of other wedding-related stuff – shoes, underwear, hair, make up, photographers, mothers… I always looked forward to our fittings because I knew I was in for a few hours of interesting, intelligent conversation, great advice and lots of laughter.

Getting dressed on the morning of my wedding, I felt completely comfortable and confident, knowing that the dress would see me through the long day without me having to fiddle with it or rearrange straps or buttons. The reaction from everyone said it all – ‘that dress is so you’.”
