All about the wedding dress
Years ago when I first started working in the bridal industry, I met a lovely customer called Leianne Carter who visted the shop I was manager for in our local town of Northwich. She was getting married in the Bahamas and wanted something comfortable, light and that was easy to travel….during the consultation I showed Leianne a few styles that were floaty and lightweight but she settled on one that looked truly stunning I was pleased as punch that she loved the bodice and skirt from Veromia I recommended she try on! The wedding took place in the Bahamas on 6th May 2004. Leianne looked really beautiful as the photos I have added to this story show!
Many years later and now owning my own bridal shop called CHERISH BRIDAL in Northwich a young lady called Jackie Carter walked into my shop wanting an appointment to try on….! At first I did think that she looked familiar and all was confirmed when Leianne walked in behind Jackie. I instantly recognised her. It was great to see her after such a long time!. She’d heard that I had opened a shop and wantedto find me because she’d had a fabulous experience finding her own gown, she told Jackie it would be great to visit to see if it was me and my business. I thought it was amazing that after 10 years two sisters both had booked consultations with me and I secretly hoped Jackie might also find ‘the one ‘ with me.! Jackie tried on a few gowns but eventually settled on a gorgeous satin and lace number from the OPULENCE BY NATALIE M collection , she looked amazing! Lots of happy tears and smiles were shared.! We all had an amazing time it was fab to see everyone and I was even able to tell Leianne what gown she wore after ten years….she was gobsmacked! It was really lovely t to have the pleasure of helping both sisters find the dress of their dreams even when their weddings were 10 years apart and I feel very proud that they chose CHERISH . I managed to help Jackie with her Bridesmaids gowns too which jackie was very thankful for as she wanted to purchase everything under one roof and was Very pleased with our service. Jackie recently got married on 21/8/14 St John’s Church, Sandiway and Peover Golf club, Lower Peover and looked so beautiful i felt so proud to be part of her special day xx.
