Wedding Venue & Location

Nancy and Dan help their wedding at Houchins Farm, Coggeshall 

Brides come to me seeking something original and often choose to tweak (either a little or a lot) one of my existing designs, creating a veil which is unique to them. Nancy chose a variation of the Maisie veil

How did the proposal happen?

We had only been together for a year. My family have owned a villa in the most beautiful rural area of northern Spain, since I was born and I was taking Dan there for the first time. 

When we arrived and got all dressed up to go out for Paella and Sangria he was waiting for me on the terrace.

It was perfect!

Where did you meet?

We met out in Chelmsford town centre – glamorous I know! We went for our first date the very next evening.

Any random, quirky or just plain lovely facts about your relationship, engagement or wedding?

We are very proud parents to a rescue French bulldog – affectionately known as Cecelia. Dan and I both planned to surprise each other by bringing her to the wedding, and then ultimately both found out about each other’s surprise when she was going to be picked up by two different people! 

She came and strutted her stuff in a matching floral collar and loved every minute of it.

I have a big airy studio in Colchester, Essex where you can make an appointment to come along and have a chat, see the collection of veils and sashes and have a try-on to see which works best. I have made accessories for brides all over the world including America, Japan, Australia, Sweden, France and Scotland and if you are not close enough to pop in, we can chat via email or Skype. I am always very happy to post out samples and sketches too so you can ensure the colour and fabric is exactly right before I post your veil or sash out to you.
