“What an absolute joy it was to google bespoke wedding dress designers and find Jenny Lessin.”
Being a second time bride of a generous age I had a clear vision of my dream dress but was worried whether it would be age appropriate, when I called Jenny she was more the happy to hear my ideas, instantly put me at ease, saying “it was my day I could wear what I jolly well wanted!”
After our initial telephone introduction I bombarded Jenny with various pictures of my envisaged dress before venturing to her design studio in North London. I instantly warmed to Jenny, she quickly spent time getting to know me as we talked in detailed about my planned summer garden wedding. We sat on the floor exchanging ideas with Jenny showing me samples of the different lace options – it was certainly an education in everything couture! After about an hour we had the outline of the dress and agreed on a delicate bodice of embroidered tulle lined with silk georgette, with a ¾ circle of heavy silk satin crepe and the most divine lace from a Spanish atelier.
Every visit was as exciting as the last as I saw my dress come to life before my eyes. Jenny’s wealth of experience and wonderful eye for detail created a beautifully elegant, timeless dress that was truly beyond my dreams and expectations.
To be told on your wedding day, not only by your husband, but friends and family that you look absolutely stunning and your dress absolutely exquisite and unique is incredible.
The whole experience was a delight and I can’t thank Jenny enough.
