I am a handwash-only, wedding dress restoration specialist.
You’re probably here reading this as you have a wedding dress that needs cleaning, so I would like to take this opportunity to explain to you exactly what I do and the benefits of using my unique service!
Until recently, the only option for a bride to get her dress cleaned after her wedding was to take it to the dry cleaners. Dry cleaning is often expensive and doesn’t always achieve the results you were hoping for. This is where I come in.
I started cleaning wedding dresses over nine years ago when I ran my own bridal boutique. It was then I noticed a gap in the market.
There were no specialist wedding dress cleaning services and so I took on the challenge of researching the fabrics and various stain removing solutions for myself and it didn’t take long before I was getting worn wedding dresses back to perfect condition again.
So, what is my secret?
Over nine years on and with a LOT of wedding dress cleans behind me I now have what I believe to be a unique understanding of these gowns and the various solutions that are harmless to the fabrics of these dresses but are tough on the stains.
I don’t think a washing machine is by any means the best place for something as delicate as a wedding dress and so everything is hand washed!
You will no doubt have fears and concerns about letting someone clean your cherished dress. I understand that which is why I will always have a full discussion with you beforehand. My service is unique, I am unaware of anyone else that offers a hand-washing wedding dress cleaning service like I do.
My brides are not just ‘another customer’ they are people who are worried that their beautiful dress will never again look like it did the first time they put it on, they are people who would love their dress to be restored as much as possible to it’s original condition and by someone they can trust to do just that.
I don’t have any staff, I don’t use any third parties (apart from a couple of experienced seamstresses I use for any repairs you require.)
I personally take care of every dress from start to finish. I will collect from a prearranged address, clean and box the dress before returning it you.
Nobody will work as hard as me to get results!
I have often been told I am a perfectionist and many customers have, when shown a photo of their dress halfway through cleaning, said to me they are over the moon with how it looks, but I take it personally when a stain doesn’t want to come out and I won’t stop trying until I have, in most cases, got it out, or exhausted all known stain removing solutions to realise it is there to stay, however, even in those rare instances where a stain will not completely come out I manage to get them faded to a point that it can take several minutes to find again, even by myself when I know where it is!
