"Words cannot express how thankful I am ... I looked stunning if i may say so myself ... thank you, thank you, thank you. So many people have been raving about the dress - it was a hit!" Real bride Bukky

Jeanne

St Andrews Church & Vigata Restaurant, Islington, London, Sep 2009

Jeanne wanted a dress that reflected her Chinese heritage – so we sourced silks in red and gold for her dress and her bridesmaids'.  We used a beaded fabric on the bodice with ruched silk detail.  The gown silhouette was a mermaid or fishtail which was appropriate to a restaurant reception.

"Thank you so much for the wonderful gown you created for me. It was fantastic that you designed something which suited me from my own choice of fabric. My dress was and still is the talk of the wedding." Mother of the bride

Karen

Auchen Castle, Moffat, Scotland, Feb 2006

Yemi on working with Karen:

"Karen had been looking for a black-feathered dress but had not managed to find one.  She'd seen a feathered dress that I'd done in white in a magazine but didn't realise at first that I offer a fully bespoke service so we were able to adapt the design to match the look she wanted exactly."

Gown description: Strapless zibeline corset featuring hand-ruched hip band tied Kimono-style behind forming a long train. Worn over black feathered fishtail skirt with its own train.
