Loved my special dress.
back in September this year my daughter was getting married and as usual i trailed the usual shops but there was nothing grabbing me. Being a young 50 year old and a size 18 it narowed it down even more.
id heard some really good stuff about Jean Jackson so i checked out her Face book, i loved all the stuff and seeing a couple of celebs on there i thought i may be abit intimidated by this, but i booked an appointment all the same.
From the minute i met Jean i knew she would make my dress, she is so lovely and makes you feel so at ease and Jeans so laid back, i kept telling her i have only 2 months but Jean took all this in her stride. I did say that i may end up loosing weight but Jean assured me again she could change things right up to the last minute, nothing was too much trouble.
I really didnt know what i wanted,was my problem, i knew i wanted long as it was for an Ibizan wedding, I told Jean i love the Vivienne Westwood shapes and could she do a take on this in a long dress, Jean wasnt faised by this at all, and i thought i was being bold. We chose the most lovely blue material, id never seen a colour like it, can i mention, Jeans collection of fabrics are just amazing.
Jean then set about sketching some styles which flattered my shape, and each time i visited i just got more and more excited.
I must say while i visited Jean i got to see some of the amazing gowns shed done in the past.
On the day everyone commented on my dress, it was very me I wish i could get married again just so i could get Jean to make me another dress.
Well i didnt quite outshine the bride but i came a close 2nd.
Thank you so much for my dress Jean
This is a fantastic shop catering for the wedding and special occasions market. Its run by a mother and daughter team with exacting standards. They have won many awards for their creations and are used by celebrities and the wider public alike. The window displays change regurarly and a delight to see and the photo attached shows the mavellous Valentines effort. If you are looking for that special gown this is the place to visit.
The whole Jean Jackson experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend having a gown made for you. The staff were extremely helpful giving help and advice on flowers , make-up, photographers.
My dress was better than I had dreamt and exactly what I wanted. I had a huge choice of silks and laces to chose from. I had a few fittings until it was perfect.
Highly recommended the workmanship is incredible and so different from a mass produced dress.
