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!
