Thank you for making the most beautiful wedding dress I have ever seen!


Dara understood my style completely and listened to my wishes for a simple dress without any frills. I couldn't have been happier with the result. I felt comfortable and great!

Dara took a lot of time to create this beautiful and personal dress for me. From the pale green colour to the vintage lace monograms on the inside of the dress everything was considered and perfect for me. I loved my dress and felt wonderful in it. Incredibly it even makes me look tall!

I have to say that the dress design process with you was one of the most memorable parts of the wedding. I really enjoyed the fittings and also your patience, but more importantly you were very professional, open to ideas and when I sensed that a lot of work would have to be put into the dress to make that 'small tweak' you didn't show this and never complained. I trusted you completely and you made me feel calm. I am so pleased this was one area I didn't stress about (you did all of that for me :)) I keep talking about the dress to Jonny and others keep telling me how beautiful it was. I wore it again on Sunday so got 2 wears out of it. I didn't imagine such a response - its been a delight and its still on-going. I'll be recommending you in future.


We've just had our pics back from the photographer and it's so great to look at these and remember what a fantastic day it was and how great I felt in your wonderful creation. I had so many comments! Everyone was admiring the dress, they were quite honestly blown away with how beautiful it was! Thank you again for all your hard work. I will of course be recommending you to everyone.
