Leagh advises…

Do you have any specific advice for brides when they are looking for their dream wedding dress?

There are lots of things to take into consideration when choosing your dress. Style, fabric, length, venue, and theme. For elopement and destination weddings, weather and time of year can be a big factor, also weight of the dress for transportation. We  will be able to give you recommendations on all these factors at your consultation.

On a personal note…
