Jen made my wedding dress August 2016 and I couldn’t be happier! She was amazing every step of the way and my dress was everything I hoped for.

5 years ago I found my dream dress, and one week ago, I got to wear it on the most perfect day ever. The Paige was the only dress I ever imagined wearing on my wedding day and I felt like a princess. Thank you so much Jen, you were so lovely to deal with from our very first meeting. My dress was absolutely stunning, and I just love how very ‘me’ she is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jen made my wedding dress at short notice for our wedding last December.
I could no have been more in love with the dress and the fit. Jen personally is so easily to deal with and accomodating.
From the bottom of my heart thanks for making my dream dress x

Jennifer,

I just wanted to thank you once again for my wonderful Anya gown.  It fit perfectly. ... and unbelievably didn’t require one alteration! I had so many lovely compliments (everyone loved how different it was and most - excluding the oldies - loved the sheer look!)

Angela and Sam - Sept 2017

Angela was one of the sweetest brides from 2017. The gown that captured her heart was originally made in a dusty blush colour, Angela trusted me enough to create it in an ivory (site unseen) for her big day. I am glad to say we were both extremely happy with the final product.

So I wanted to say first of all, thank you. Thank you for creating my gown which I could not have been happier with, that contributed to the best day I could have ever imagined! Our wedding in the Byron hinterland was absolute perfection to us. Sam was speechless when he finally saw me walking down the aisle in the dress, beaming like a Cheshire cat. I was so nervous leading up to the day, but when I woke up on the morning of the wedding and started getting ready I was bizarrely calm (for me) and as soon as I slipped into that polka-dot tulle and lace I felt so comfortable and I just knew that no matter what happened from that point on, the day would be magic because I felt 100% myself... but an even better version! So thank you for helping to create that magic. The whole journey with you in the gown creation was so much fun, I looked forward to each appointment with such anticipation and enjoyed the dress being revealed a little bit more with each fitting - I shall carry those fond memories with me forever, so thank you again!

Alisha_Trent_Wedding_417.jpg

Alisha and Trent - August 2017

What a wedding! Alisha had a customised Alisha overlay with fitted sleeves worn over an Ivory Cressida gown with detachable straps.

In 2017 I had FIVE Brides with broken zips!! Luckily I was able to get to each and every one to stitch it closed before the ceremony. I have had the odd broken zip over the years but 5 in one year was not usual. Needless to say I have since found a new zip supplier with zero broken zips in 2018! Thank heavens I was a guest at Alisha and Trent's big day.

Jennifer Gifford is not only an incredible talent, but also one of the most humble, kind and inspiring women I’ve ever met. I am thrilled and honoured to have her designing my gown and after ~plenty~ of other visits to other designers, I can’t encourage other brides enough to view her designs and meet her themselves. You won’t just have a perfect wedding dress - you’ll have someone who makes everything with such meticulous perfection that you truly can’t fault her. Every collection is created with so much planning and love, you’ll find a dress that feels like it was designed just for you.

Harriet and Matt - April 2017

Harriet was one of my many Brides who live and work in Country Australia. We scheduled Harriet’s fittings around when she was visiting Brisbane. I see a lot of interstate and country brides who would otherwise find having a gown Made to Measure very challenging. If you are a country bride or live interstate and can only get to see me twice during your fitting schedule get in touch to find out how I can help you.

Jennifer makes the experience so personal, she has a unique way of making you feel special from the very moment you start trying your first dress, through to the moment you pick your own up. I absolutely love my dress and it was not what I was expecting I would get - Jennifer is extremely talented with helping to pick something that looks absolutely perfect and then working with you so it is amazing to wear.

Jess and Drewy April 2018

What can I say about Jess's Big Day? It was simply one of the most special weddings I have been blessed to create for.

Jess had a plan and I was the only person who could help her with it. Take a look at the images and see if you can figure out what it was...

Dear Jen,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating the wedding dress of my dreams. I am a little sad that it’s now all over and I won’t get to see you every week. I have had an absolute ball going through this experience having you there for support.

Lots of love Jess xx
— Mrs Watson

 

It time to celebrate!

Hearts a Flutter Tour 2017

In May of 2017 I went on a life changing adventure to France with a dynamic bunch of beautiful women.  The Hearts A Flutter Tour was created and hosted by the ever so lovely Kim Wisely from Flutter Magazine and Wedding Designer Joy Proctor, one of the most talented and humble ladies I have ever met.    The time we spent time in Paris was taken up by cooking lessons, classical concerts, walking tours and lots of great food, conversation and Rose of course!  Below are some snaps from our time in Paris and Provence.

 

 

Paris

Beautiful sun drenched early Spring days walking the streets of Paris, eating amazing food and creating memories with some beautiful people.

Provence

Probably my favourite part of the tour.  A beautiful Villa in Provence, lots of wine and food.  Creativity and honest conversation.

Paris Solo

A little snippet of my time exploring Paris Solo!  I highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Paris.  Just get lost and it's amazing what you will find.
