Private Brides 1994 - 2011


Getting married is one of the most exciting time in a womans life. The choice of gown is sometimes an easy one if the bride has a clear vision of the dress of her dreams for her special day. The couture process is a real option for many brides if their vision is unique and their budget allows for this. So many of these brides find their way to me. Referrals often come from dress makers, bead shops, bead suppliers and fabric shops. 

When a bride makes her first appointment to come to discuss the beading with me, it is with great excitement that we work together on achieving this exciting outcome. In the first appointment the bride chooses her beads, where she wants the beading and the type of beading she wants. Initial costings are worked on in this first appointment. I always create unique beading designs for each bride. 

The next part of the process is for the bride to have her gown made or purchase a pre-made gown. She then brings it to me, to bead with all the exquisite beads she chose in her initial consultation. In approx 2 weeks the beading on the dress is finished and ready to be collected by the bride.

To see the happiness on a bride to be's face is price less and makes being part of this couture process a pleasure for me.
