Pauline and David, Troon, Scotland, 2011

Pauline and David, Troon, Scotland, 2011

Pauline & David “I have always loved 1920s fashion and I knew I wanted a wedding dress in this style. I was delighted to discover the Lindsay Fleming website and was even more delighted to see the fantastic dresses. I didn’t need to look at any other wedding dresses as I was smitten by Clara on my first visit.

Grace and David were amazing and did everything they could to ensure my dress was absolutely perfect. Grace helped me to find the accessories to make the whole look complete, including a bag she embroidered beautifully to match my dress. As we live in Essex but were married in Scotland, the flexibility of being able to have appointments in London or Scotland was great. Grace is hugely talented and so modest. Together Grace and David make a great team and I cannot recommend their service highly enough.”

Pauline and David were without doubt one of the most interesting and likeable couples we have had the pleasure of meeting during our many roadshow trips to London. Not only did we enjoy a glass of wine with them during fittings, but it was not uncommon for the ‘meetings’ to continue down in the bar of Dolphin House. I’m sitting here trying to remember if Grace still had clients to see later in the day, however I think professionalism did win the day. It was over one of the glasses of wine, we heard the fascinating and hilarious story of how David won the 2008 European ‘Cannonball Run’ in a —— Union Jack Smart Car. Only when we got onto the stories about entering a ‘Beach Buggy’ for the following years race, did I doubt David’s sanity. Not a surprise that they came in last.

However back to the star of the show, Pauline, who had come across our ‘All That Jazz‘ collection while on-line looking for a twenties style wedding dress, and living about an hour out from London our roadshows were a perfect fit for her busy schedule. From memory she had her heart set on a colourful little number, ‘Loretta’, however when she saw ‘Clara‘ she fell in love with the design. We were also to find out from that first appointment that Pauline and David had chosen to be married in Scotland, at the stunning ‘Lochgreen House’ in Troon, a return to Pauline’s native Scotland.

As a rule we unfortunately are unable to make the bridesmaid dresses. But whether it was Pauline’s charm or the glass(es) of wine, Grace surprisingly agreed to make not only two bridesmaid dresses, but also, Pauline’s handbag for the day, plus a beautiful cushion for the rings.

To add another twist to the story of Pauline and David’s wedding, their photographer of choice for the big day was our good friend and constant companion on photoshoots, Mark Archibald. Mark tells us how the terrible Ayrshire weather that day tried hard, but just could not put a dampener on the wedding. That is one fact I can believe, Pauline and David would make sure nothing spoiled their day. Mark also never fails to remind me that Pauline approached him for the photography before she came along to see Lindsay Fleming about the dress. I think we need to arrange another glass of wine to settle this argument once and for all, or maybe even join in next year’s Cannonball Run.

All I know is that we are all glad we played a part in a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple.
