Her designs are contemporary yet traditional. Every design showed has stemmed from her passion for creating something unique and beautiful.

She is keen to every detail, working directly with clients to better understand their needs, seeing each order through to the final step of packing and shipping. Overseeing it all.

She believes that a wedding day is one of the most important day in a woman's life and no fuss is too much...

"the possibilities are endless..."
