Our wedding day dawned with a classic Cornish fanfare of weather - blazing sunshine one moment, and rain to put The Tempest to shame, the next. At our welcome drinks the night before, we had had to wade through a small flood in the village to make it back to the hotel - and I had lain awake for several hours wondering how on earth my dress would survive the next day! But I need not have worried - nothing would dampen the spirit of such a wonderful day... 
 
My bridal dream started out back in 1988 , in a tiny shop under the name of Through the Looking Glass in Weston-Super-Mare. I had left Next after a short stint there and decided I wanted to work for myself. So at the tender age of 17, with my mum as a dressmaker and my to be business partner , we started with just 5 dresses and some bridesmaids dresses mum had made.
