The Last Eden | Our Bride Sam

It’s always a sad day when we have to wave goodbye to a dress! Jenny Packham’s beautiful Eden was a firm favourite with Ellie & the girls. So the letter dropped through the door saying Eden was going to be discontinued. Our hearts dropped.┬áReluctantly, we put the beautiful dress into our sample sale…

Sam just knew this was the dress for her! She came all the way to London to see us at an exhibition and make sure nobody else got their hands on Eden. The stars aligned, the fit was brilliant, the colours were beautiful and Sam left with her dream dress!

Just a few days ago our favourite thing happened. Sam sent us an email telling us how much she loved wearing her dress, and these gorgeous photos to prove it!

Sam’s Letter

Dear Ellie, Andrea and the Girls.

I wanted to send a quick email of a huge thank you!

Right from the start my dream dress was an adventure. Finding the last Eden was a day that I will never forget and without Ellie and Andrea, the beautiful beaded Jenny Packham wouldn’t have been mine. Emotions were flying that day to say the least. I don’t think a bride has ever had such a beating heart, when they tried on “The Dress”.

Having my Eden set the tone of the whole wedding, delicate, intricate and full of detail. We married at St Michael and All Angels Church, Witley Court in Worcester with an English Country Garden reception to follow at Laughern Hill Estate.

We have the travel bug so we had elements of all the places we have seen around the garden, marquee and the venue, mixed with lots of foliage and flowers. The sun was out all afternoon and for us we had the perfect day!

Marrying John in my dream dress happened because of you.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your patience and hard work and for giving me the opportunity to wear Eden when I married my best friend and love of my life.

I wanted to share these images with you.

Thank you again for everything

Best Wishes
