Gemma started dress shopping at the end of 2010, in preparation for her wedding in May 2011. The bride-to-be knew that she wanted a gown with full straps and tried on several different dresses that were beautiful, but just not right.
Gemma eventually put a deposit on a gown with straps but deep down she wasn’t entirely convinced with her choice. A week later, she was driving past the same bridal shop and in the window was a gorgeous halter neck gown with amazing detail. Gemma immediately phoned Harmony Brides in Swindon and made an appointment to try it on. She fell in love with the design by Mark Lesley the moment she walked out of the dressing room.
All of Gemma’s jewellery and accessories were bespoke and made especially to suit her wedding dress. Anna, the owner of ‘For Keeps’ also made corsage pins and jewellery for the Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom and the bridesmaids.
