I had no idea what style of dress I wanted so I thought I would start trying on a few dresses and see how I felt in the different styles. I heard of the incredible designer Sonia from Cappellazzo Couture and decided to go and have a chat to her. The minute I walked into her studio in Camberwell, we started talking about different styles of wedding dresses and she began to sketch; when she showed me what she had drawn I was amazed.

I fell in love with the design from that moment and I couldn’t wait for Sonia to start making my bespoke gown. I was so excited, so we made the appointments for the next six months!

We also played around with the design and fabrics and I loved every minute of the process. Sonia used the most stunning imported delicate fabrics from France and Italy for my wedding dress and she made me feel like a princess every time I went in for my next fitting.

I remember walking in to meet her for the first time and I said “I want my future husband to see me walk down the aisle and say WOW”  – and he did! More than that, so did all our guests.
