"Hi Sabina,

I found my Belle dress in Hale and had the pleasure of meeting you on a couple of occasions on the up run to our wedding.

Where do I begin? I honestly don't have the words to thank you enough. I have never felt as elegant and beautiful as I did in your beautiful gown. Our day was absolutely perfect and my gorgeous dress was a huge part of that.

When I first began looking for a dress I started to believe that, although I would no doubt end up with a lovely, well made, beautiful dress, it wasn't my destiny to feel 'bridal' and that I would most likely not feel completely myself on the big day. And then I found you. Your dresses, your vision and talent, is everything I was looking for and my choice of the Belle dress meant I got to feel beautiful, radiant and graceful but still very much me. I can't tell you how important that was to me and my husband (I think he had started to worry he wouldn't recognise me!).

I love that dress. I really, truly do. Thank you. For designing it in the first place and then for all your insight and advice that made it 'my dress'. And I haven't even mentioned the slide, belt and the life saving underwear advice you gave me!! Just brilliant.

I am thrilled to see your collection appearing around the media more and more and wish you every success in the future, you deserve it - what you do is wonderful and beautiful and you're making many women blissfully happy!

One last thing - I will be eternally grateful for the look on my husbands face when he first set eyes on me at the top of the aisle. I will never, ever forget that. Thank you.

Lots of love, health and happiness,

Laura wore a bias cut, backless wedding dress called La Bella.
