It is my absolutely pleasure to bring you this wedding of pure cuteness and Jo…this is the one that Cheryl and Sasha got married at The Donkey Sanctuary, and Sasha had one of the gorgeous donkeys as her bridesmaid!!
Sasha found us via The Eclectic wedding Extravaganza , and headed over from sunny Wales to have her dress designed and made by our team!!
We have THE best clients
We asked Sasha to tell us about their wedding so here goes
” I had a donkey bridesmaid at the donkey sanctuary! One of our dogs was also our ringbearer and at our reception we had some donkey guests hanging out with everyone getting cuddles. We also had a hand fasting ceremony and jumped the broom at our reception which was really meaningful and a chance to involve our friends and families.
We decorated our reception with plants and flowers we had collected the day before from the local area with family, and Cheryl’s dad made an amazing board with loads of photographs of us as kids and growing up. We also had a stepladder next to our top table with photographs of my mum, dad, nan and grandad. They’ve all passed on but it was important for them to have a presence on our big day.
Our Wedding was also environmentally friendly. This was really important for both of us, all our cutlery and tableware was made from bamboo, and at the end of the day we only had two small bags of non recyclable waste which I think is amazing as we had over 100 guests!
Get the right photographer! I had been told this beforehand and it’s absolutely true. The day goes so fast, it’s been great being able to go over the pictures and be reminded of it all. Our photographer was also great at taking candid shots of our guests which was a brilliant addition. We got to see everyone having fun and saw different sides to the day which was lovely.”
Sasha also had some kind word to say about us “My dress was perfect! I am not a “dress person” but jo was brilliant and helped me figure out exactly what I wanted. The detail on my dress was perfect and I just couldn’t imagine wearing anything else. Thank you Jo and your team for being so approachable, knowledgeable and skilled. Loved the whole experience
Sasha’s gown was based on our Lolita design, but has unique twists and colours that were Sasha’s favourites. It was made from silk organzas, tuile and french lace and was adorned an embellished with embroidered leaves and appliqued french corded lace …Such a gorgeously gothic combo, and how cool does it look with sparkly doc martins??
So Girls if you are looking for a badass bespoke dress then we could well be the company for you
