Our fabulous Jo first visited Ellie Sanderson in Oxford in January 2013. At her first visit, she met our then new Store Manager Andrea and a friendship was formed. Andrea helped Jo find the dress of her dreams and Jo couldn’t wait to show her sister later in January. Jo had fallen in love with Chryso by Alan Hannah, and a Tilly jacket by Sassi Holford.
Jo was married at St Mary Magdalen Church in Sheet, near Petersfield (www.stmarymagdalensheet.org.uk ) and the newly married couple then held their reception at The Tithe Barn on Old Ditcham Farm. (www.tithe-barn.co.uk)
Jo also chose a bespoke length Camilla lace veil by Sassi Holford, our infamously comfy Lizzie shoes by Rainbow Club, and a stunning Twilight tiara.
Jo tells us; “It was a very special day, surrounded by so much love and support from family and friends and knowing that so many people had contributed to making the day the success it was. Our guests commented on how relaxed and friendly the whole day was and it created some wonderful memories which will stay with us forever.”
Jo kindly gave us some words of advice for you bride to be’s: “Enjoy every moment in the run up to your day and on the day itself. Try and take 5minutes on the day for the two of you to be together at the reception to soak up the occasion. (And buy your dress from Ellie Sanderson!)”
We hope married life is simply perfect for you Jo, we will miss your visits popping in for some calm moments amongst your very busy weeks!
