Alex’s Story

I came across Jenny’s website quite by chance and was thrilled and intrigued by the variety and quality of her work. By the time we met I had been to dozens of bridal boutiques and tried on every style of dress you could imagine. Commissioning my wedding dress from a dressmaker seemed a daunting prospect but I decided to explore the idea out of sheer desperation! It was the best decision I made in the whole process of planning our wedding.

From the moment I met Jenny in her beautiful studio I felt excited, encouraged and in entirely safe and capable hands. Jenny has the valuable – and very rare – ability to listen extremely carefully to what her clients’ dreams and tastes are and to mold these ideas into a brand new, distinct and top quality creation which fits perfectly in every way. Jenny is a master of her art and her understanding of fabrics and cut; her eye for detail; immediate understanding of what suited my body shape and what didn’t; and her quiet enthusiasm made the process of making my wedding dress more fun and memorable than I could have imagined. She is also extremely calm and organised, which in the last weeks before the wedding was invaluable!

Jenny’s final creation for me – an intricate leafy bodice with a skirt of layers of soft tulle over satin  – was more beautiful than I could ever possible have imagined. I could not have felt happier, more comfortable or more myself in it  and will forever be grateful to Jenny for the care, thought and time she put in to making me my the dress of my dreams.
