I just want to say a massive thank you to Connie for all the help and effort she went to ensuring my dress would be perfect for my special day! Being a plus sized bride I found it very difficult finding someone who wouldn't pass me off as 'fat' or ask if I would lose weight before the wedding, I stumbled across connie after a google search and I was nothing but happy from there on in!

Hello Connie, I just wanted to say thankyou for helping me find my wedding dress. At first I did not like the dress you suggested and was apprehensive about trying it on, as on the rack it didn't seem much. The moment I tried it on, I knew I had found the one I wanted! Thankyou for being flexible as I live interstate and also doing such a great and quick job on my alterations!'

When I first went into the boutique I felt anxious and was shaking. Connie, the owner and operator put me at ease. She put me in a number of dresses that flattered my figure and gradually put together a picture of dress that she thought I would love. Although I didn't find anything that day, she knew the perfect dress for me would be arriving in a couple of weeks.

The experience I love most about this bridal shop is how much Connie cares. Going to big bridal shops with generic dresses and staff that treat you like a sales meal, this boutique treats you like a bride. And what bride doesn't love to be the center of attention =)

Margeret Gilbey

Connie you are the best. My daughter has ordered her dream dress all thanks to you. What a pleasure it has been to meet you and your advice has been wonderful. Thank you again you made it all so easy.

Larissa Rosamond

Loved having Connie do the alterations for my dress. I had all my fittings and alterations within 2 weeks of my dress arriving as my wedding was booked so quickly. Connie was great with making me some straps/bolero to go with my dress which I would never had got if I had bought the dress from anywhere else. I found the design online and she made them exactly as I wanted.

Laura Groves

Wedding Dress: Justin Alexander

I searched all over Sydney for my Justin Alexander dress to be told by several unhelpful bridal stores that they didn't stock their dresses anymore, I had almost giving up hope of getting my dream dress when I called Connie.....she had my d...ream dress for me that same very week! Amazing!

Louise Sparkes

What a wonderful appointment ! Forget going to a busy bridal store on a Saturday where you're nothing more than a number. Connie is a professional!

Connie has a gorgeous selection of gowns at her bridal boutique, which all are of beautiful quality and are reasonably priced. She is very professional to deal with, honest with her opinions and she never pressured me to make the purchase quickly, like other sales people did at other bridal boutiques I came across. The alterations she made to my gown were perfect and I loved wearing my gown on our wedding day.
