Surrey wedding inspiration – REAL BRIDE Emily


Welcome to the love story Surrey wedding of Simon and Emily, who wed in August at the breath taking wedding venue of Northbrook Park in Farnham, Surrey.

Emily wore a sample Jesus Peiro designer wedding dress, she had found at Surrey bridal boutique Miss Bush in Ripley. It needed some repairs and adjustments, which is how she began looking for a Surrey wedding dress seamstress. Emily describes her journey with me…

“..Where do I begin?! Caroline saved the day when I was worried that my sample sale wedding dress was a bit uncomfortable, two years after I bought it. 

She listened to my design ideas and helped me to feel confident and comfortable. 

She changed the shape of the back panel, fixed some of the embellishment on the waist and added loops, hems and hooks in all the right places.

I fell in love with the dress again. Not did her work look so natural that the dress looked even better than the original, but her prices were fair and reasonable.


She even sourced a beautiful veil that complemented the dress perfectly. Thank you, Caroline!” 

It was such a pleasure to work with you, Emily, and thank you for bringing your beautiful gown to me for wedding dress alterations xx

The guy on the tablet is Simon’s brother (also his best man) who was stuck in Australia! They had a travel ban so we had to find another way to get him involved! I was a little reluctant at first but it worked well in the end as he didn’t miss out. (The coolest part was that he could choose where to go and control the robot himself from Australia!)
