Sally considers it an honour to create what she believes is the most important dress a woman will ever wear — her wedding dress — and commits her full energy to the creative process. She works closely with the bride-to-be to ensure that they have their perfect dress on their wedding day. Having planned her own wedding, for which she made her own wedding dress, Sally understands that this process can be a stressful time for some. That is why Sally's aim is to make things as easy as possible for the bride-to-be so they are free to enjoy the experience, which is how it should be. While designing wedding dresses seems very natural to Sally, her talent has been enhanced by a degree in Fashion Design from Massey University. She has a very strong design skill, and is especially good at drawing people's ideas out of their mind and illustrating their dress for them to see. For those who would like to work around a budget, she has reliable contacts and fabric sources, and can recommend fabrics that both look good and help keep the cost of a dress down. Sally is always looking forward to meeting new people, so feel free to give her a call, arrange a time for a cup of tea with her at the Wellington studio, and you can start bringing your perfect dress to life.
