Hi Sheila,

I just wanted to say an enormous thank you and sorry for saying this so late!

You made my absolute dream wedding dress. The bespoke bolero was everything I’d dreamt of and more.

You were amazing to work with – experiences, friendly and approachable (not like the pushy sales people elsewhere). I always felt relaxed and the process was so enjoyable.

So I wanted to say a massive thanks.

I’ve attached a few pics!

Thank you again,

Mrs. Eliza Crawford-Clarke.

To the whole BOA Boutique Team,

A massive thank you to you all for your invaluable help throughout the journey of finding my perfect wedding dress. From the first phone enquiry, through to the final collection, and every visit and fitting in between, everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was exceptional and you did everything possible to make the experience a wonderful one.

I love that I was able to customise my dress, and the fitting by Maureen was amazing. I was even able to have a tie and pocket square made for my husband out of the silk from my dress, which was a really special gift for the morning of our wedding day.

My bridesmaids, Mum and I will all cherish our memories at your beautiful boutique, and I can’t thank you all enough!

Best wishes,

Dear Sheila,

Thank you so much for my beautiful dress. We had the most amazing evening and I felt fantastic. Thank you for putting up with my tweaks to the design and making my wedding dress experience so special. I attach some photos of the day – enjoy!

Dear Sheila and all the team at BOA,

I can’t believe it’s been such a long time since my last dress fitting and since we got married. I can’t thank you enough for your help, wonderful service, enthusiasm and expertise along the way. Your help in choosing/designing the dress, ideas for what the final look would be, expert fitting and sewing skills were hugely appreciated, for both my dress and the bridesmaid dress that you altered for my sister.

I absolutely LOVED wearing my dress and am so grateful for all your help getting me there when I started off having no clue what I was after. Having an original Sheila Harding was fantastic! The dress and top got lots of comments – both on how ‘different’ it was, and how very ‘me’ it was. I hadn’t thought I wanted to wear a veil and ended up wearing it all day because I was enjoying it so much! The whole outfit was such a delight to wear, fitted perfectly and helped make our wedding a truly brilliant day – we all had such a good time.

I will send a proper card but wanted to send over some other photos that show off the dress a bit better – the photographer did a great job in capturing it all. I’ve attached some of my favourites that capture the dress well (sorry there are a lot but thought you’d like to see your good work in action!).

Thanks again so much for everything – I couldn’t have wished for better service and you put up with a lot of toddler tantrums from my niece which we hugely appreciated on top of everything else. And she wore the dress! A minor miracle…

All the best to everyone and happy new year!

Dear Sheila, Philippa, Katy and team.

A huge thank you for all of your help in selecting my beautiful gown. Your shop is gorgeous and I instantly felt at ease and really well looked after.

All of you played a part in my journey to getting into the dress – from the meticulous measuring to Katy’s high five when I finally reached the measurements I needed!

Jamie and I had the best day and I felt like a princess thats to Marina’s fantastic altering skills.

I feel sad that I don’t have a reason to come back!

Thank you again everyone.

Best Wishes,

I just wanted to say how helpful you were when I was looking for my dress and how you instinctively seemed to know what would suit me when I had no idea myself!

Thank you for your lovely words Jessy, who looked stunning in her Anouska G gown

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Philippa, Sheila and Maureen, and to share a few photographs from our wedding in New Zealand. The dress made it on 8 flights across five countries and through 3,500km of driving within New Zealand, and it also successfully made it into the helicopter, so perhaps it’s one of the most well-travelled BOA dresses ever?! We had the most wonderful day and my new husband was blown away by the gown.

Thanks again for all the care and attention that went into finding and creating my dream wedding gown. It was a pleasure to share the experience with you.

All the very best,

Autumn 2016
