Laura, Ngozi and Ngozi

Laura

Croxley Green, Herts, Sep 2009

Yemi on designing Laura's gown: "Laura was one of the directors of BNI of which I was a member.  She wanted a gown that she could wear again so we settled on the aubergine colour which also matched the accent theme of her wedding.  I also made sure the design was light enough to serve as evening wear again in the future – while providing structure and support around the bodice."

"I can't stop looking at myself in that fabulous dress - He made me look like a goddess." Rosemary
