“Only having visions of what I knew I didn’t want and not knowing at all what I did
want, how was I ever going to make such an important decision?Within a week of our
first consultation I had an array of sketches, each with different detailing that set
them apart from the others I’d seen. They were magical! In one email she had captured
my style and personality instantly while introducing me to the elegance of Velvet
Johnstone. As I longingly gazed over the sketches with my heart racing with excitement,
there I saw the dress I was going to marry my husband in.
Cheryl was thoroughly attentive in every meeting and it was great to go in to the
studio to keep up to date with the various stages, always having the opportunity to
amend or tweak the design at any time.
When the day came to collect it, I didn’t have an ounce of nerves, as I knew I was in
the best hands. I tried it on for the final time and despite never having that ‘perfect
dress’ image in my head before, I was now standing there, wearing the perfect wedding
