‘I never imagined myself as a bride in a traditional dress, it just wasn’t ever really me. I went wedding dress shopping both in NZ and the UK and hated every second, the ladies in the shop telling me how great I looked, we were obviously looking on different mirrors!!

Then I came across Julia’s Instagram page and I just loved her designs. After my first meeting with Julia I knew she was the person to design my dress. She put me at ease and was so down to earth, not to mention talented.

Now I’m fussy at the best of times and particular but Julia wasn’t phased. 3 days into confirming my wedding dress I found out I was pregnant and would be 20 weeks on my wedding day-Julia was still not phased even though she was off on a 3 month trip to India.

My dress was just perfect and so me. Julia and Kim did an amazing job in bringing my dress to life and I felt a million dollars on my wedding day. Thank you both so so much’
