“I went to my friends wedding and after seeing her dress I knew I had to have mine made from scratch. I had trawled so many shops and tried on so many dresses I just couldn't find what I wanted! I either looked like a meringue or a profiterole! I knew exactly what I wanted I just wasn't sure whether someone could achieve it. When I met Susanna for the first time to explain my requirements she just got it! She was honest and up front about what would and would not suit my figure. We spent the next 7 months designing and making my dress, each fitting was like another consultation on what we would do next. I was involved every step of the way and making from scratch meant we could tailor the dress to suit me! The day I tried it on when it was finished was one of the happiest days of my life (next to the wedding obviously) I could not believe how beautiful it was and joe beautiful I felt and looked in my dress. The compliments and gasps I got when I walked down the aisle and my husband was blown away. Susanna you are an artist! I would high recommend anyone considering making their own dress to use Susanna Rachel.”
“Being Cabin Crew I had the opportunity of traveling to many exotic cities all over the world to search for my dream wedding dress. Little did I know that I would find my perfect wedding dress custom made to fit my body and personality by the Lovely Susanna who lived down the road from me! After my first meeting with Susanna, I knew immediately by her professionalism, attention to detail and kindness that she was the person I could rely on to make my dress for my special day. I looked forward to every fitting and Susanna attended to my every request and added her own personal flare and professional advice to ensure that I was over the moon with my dress! After my last fitting, I was more that satisfied with Susanna's beautiful creation and I received many compliments on how classy and gorgeous my dress was. Most of all I loved wearing my dress and my husband loved it! Thank you Susanna for making me feel like a princess and attending to my every request. Your work ethic, friendliness and professional advice was highly appreciated and I would recommend you above any high end store!”

“I just want to let you know how unbelievably grateful I am to you for the wonderful, wonderful dress you made. I have never felt so happy or beautiful as when I put your dress on for my wedding. It was just spectacular. Thank you for your fantastic work.”
“Dearest Susanna, Such a belated thank you but by no means any less heartfelt.
You really saved the day! I can't thank you enough for creating such a beautiful wedding dress in a record time... You've turned what had been a stressful process into a beautiful experience...
Throughout the process, I have been overwhelmed by the style, quality and workmanship that has gone into creating my wedding dress...
The chantilly lace added a level of sophistication to the fish tail dress. It was effortlessly elegant as I had wished... I couldn't have hoped for a nicer design. It fitted me like a glove thanks to your nimble fingers and dedication.
I received so many compliments on the workmanship of the dress and I owe it to you... It was a real pleasure working with you and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any future brides.
With very best wishes and many many thanks again.”

“I was so excited to be getting married, however, going to bridal shop after bridal shop the task of finding my dream dress in Dubai was proving to be impossible until I met Susanna who instantly made me feel like my fairy tale wedding was going to come true. We discussed in detail all of my ideas and she was very honest in telling what would and would not work. It was a pleasure going to every fitting in a nice cosy environment and as my dress took shape I got more and more excited. My dress was just what I wanted and the best thing about it was that it was so comfortable throughout the whole day, I truly loved it and had so many compliments.” Sarah x
“Thankyou for designing such a beautiful gown and being such a wonderful person to work with”
“What can I say? Susanna created my dream wedding dress and it was one of the best decisions I made in relation to the wedding. I had no luck in the bridal shops in the UAE, and struggled to find someone who understood what I was looking for and truly knowledgeable about what would really work for me. The first consultation set my mind completely at ease. I’d taken a few photos along “I like the neckline on this one, the silhouette of this one, the waist on this one and the skirt of this one…”And quite frankly, she made it happen. She has an incredibly good eye for how to bring out your best features. The quality of her work is fantastic. It was also a pleasure to visit her and see the dress come together week by week. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat.”
“I loved working with Susanna on my wedding dress. She made the whole process enjoyable, completely stress free and something very special! She has an amazing eye for detail.”
