I feel so confident wearing it and cant wait to show it of at the wedding.”

We left shortly after the wedding and are now relaxing on holiday in France with our motor home in the grounds of a former chateau.”

Anna Bartholomew

“At long last, a moment to sit down and send you some photos of the wedding as promised. So sorry for the delay. Life for us continues very busy and since returning to Scotland after the wedding we have been non-stop with Precept ministry. We had the most wonderful grace-filled, Christ- honoring joyous day of celebration. Esther-Rose was radiant and our beloved new son Mike glowed with gentle adoration and joy. The service, reception and speeches all clearly and boldly pointed us to the true ‘Bridegroom’ As for the HAT…I want to say a HUGE thank you and would give you a long loving hug right now if I could. Everyone said how beautiful I looked. My own father did not recognize me as I came into the church and said I looked stunning! I am not used to so much praise! I have attached three photos to give you an idea but can send lots more (especially focusing on different angles of the hat if that is any use for your web site etc?) if you would like!! I just don’t want to overload your computer. This comes with my love and prayers for you and your son. I do hope you are both well.”

Margaret McIntyre

“Can’t tell you how delighted I am that you have been appointed to the Guild of Master Craftsmen! Jimmy and I send you our congratulations and every good wish for your future success. Looking forward to seeing you next Monday, thank you for inviting me to this very special occasion.”

Janice Withers

“I have attached a photo of my hat. I hope you can see by my face how much I enjoyed wearing it. Ascot was a blast and your design was photographed and spoke about to death. The picture I have sent was taken at the final event of Diageo Kilmarnock where I was asked to wear my hat to show my passion for Johnnie Walker.”

Sheena Boyd

“Here are some of the photos of my hat. There were many favourable comments about my lovely hat it was a great success! Thank you!! We had a super day at THE GARDEN PARTY.”

Helen Anne Nicol

“Eventually a couple of photos as promised. We had a wonderful day and your hat was greatly admired. The wedding was in June and we’ll be grandparents in May.”

Ann Wardie

“Sorry for the dreadful delay, tried every variation I could think of and finally looked on your website for the address! It was the capitals that threw me. Thank you very very much for your inspired design I felt really special. (Unfortunately I fell on the way in to church and tore an enormous hole in the front of my dress. So had hysterics, which is why my face one hour later is still a bit puffy.) That’s my last mother of the bride time but there’s still a chance to meet the Queen!”

Lynsey McDonald

“I hope you are well, hopefully you remember me, both my mum and me got headpieces from yourself last year for my wedding in August! I attached a couple of photos for you, they were absolutely stunning on the day, I look forward to hearing from you.”

Eleanor Aitken

“I am sorry it has taken so long but I am now enclosing some photographs of the beautiful hat you made for me for my daughter Beverley’s wedding. It was absolutely fabulous and it felt so light and comfortable on my head and I was able to perform all my duties as Mother of the Bride including making a speech at the reception, without having to worry about my hat falling off. The colour match was absolutely identical to the colour of my outfit and it was much admired by all my family and friends at the wedding. Thank you again for all the trouble you went through on my behalf and making me a hat that made me feel “A Million Dollars”. I would certainly recommend you to any of my friends who are looking for a hat for a special occasion and I would like to wish you continued success with your Millinery business.”

Aileen Hill

“Here are some pictures of the wedding, my hat was admired by all and I felt fantastic! We had a great day and the sun shone for us. Thanks again, I will be in touch next year for my other daughters wedding!”

Andrea Duncan

“Here are a couple of photos of the complete outfit, including your excellent hat – for Moray’s wedding in May. I hope that you’re as pleased with it as I was! No more children to get married, I’m afraid, but I’ve told lots of people around here what you can do and showed them the pictures, they were mighty impressed! x”

“Finally a photo as promised. The wedding was perfect. Thank you so much for the wonderful fascinator that you made. It was absolutely beautiful and much admired.”

Janet Duff

“I’ve tried to send you a photo of Kirsty’s wedding off and on since last year! I hope that this works this time! My fascinator was a huge success, everyone loved it. I’ve got two weddings this year and I intend to wear it to both, as it will be different guests at each one. Many thanks again for such a fabulous job. Keep up the good work!”

Julie McElroy

“On behalf of my mum who brought one of your lovely fascinators for my brother’s wedding, I am enclosing a photograph to add to your collection.”

Eileen Churchill

“Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I’ve attached the long awaited photos of the hats from the weddings. I now have a beautiful grandson (10 weeks old) so Christmas was really special for us this year. Hope you are well.”

Pia Chamberlain

“Yes, we had superb weather. Temple Church is one of London’s most historical and beautiful churches and it made a truly memorable setting for the ceremony. We then went off in a vintage double-decker bus, and my daughter and son-in-law in a white vintage London taxi, to an Italian restaurant, where we had a delicious meal and later excellent live entertainment until early next morning. My outfit and the hat in particular, were much admired. The hat was a perfect match for the suit and I was very lucky to find some satin shoes and a bag to tone in with the pink of the flower.”

“We had a WONDERFUL day and her dress was just perfect – I have never seen her looking better or happier. I attach some photos of the wedding.”

Lorna McClune

“A picture of me on the beautiful hat you created for me. I just loved it on the day and as you can see the colours just went fab with my outfit. I did swither over going for a demi-hat which I felt was quite different from the usual large wedding hat and worried about it before the big day that I had done the right thing but everyone has commented on how lovely it was and I am so glad I decided to go for it. Hope you like it too and the pictures do your creation justice.”

Lorna McClune

Linda Dalgleish

“Here is a photo of the wonderful hat you made for me. Your hat was very much admired. Everyone was amazed at how you had managed to match up with the varying shades of the dress material. Thank you so much for the excellent service and look forward to seeing you, next time I need a hat again.”

Kate Seller

“WOW what a hat!! Many thanks for all your help in the decision making and then in making it for me. The demi-hat was a great success, many compliments on it, all down to you.”

Margaret McGaughey

“Thank you so much for the lovely hat you made for me. My outfit would not have looked as good without it. When I think back to my first appointment with you, I was very much set on wearing a fascinator. I am so glad you talked me into wearing a hat. Everyone loved it and the colour was a perfect match for my outfit. Hope you like the picture i have sent you. Keep up the good work you are so good at what you do and such a lovely person.”

Shona McDougall

“Finally sending you a photo of my hat that you made for me in April. I have now worn it twice! I absolutely love it and have received so many compliments! Thank you so much again for making my outfit complete. I have a friend who makes dresses and she has taken some of your cards to give out.”
