What mums said about us …
Hi Nigel, I just cannot express how wonderful your beautiful wife & Jacqueline made me feel, nothing was too much trouble for them. For me to come away feeling like I did & still do, is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you so much Warm regards Sheena James & Sheena Dawkins
Hi Nigel, Just wanted to say a big thank you for an amazing caring service. Even though I live in Luxembourg you have made the whole experience very easy for me, and your responsiveness was most impressive. Thanks for arranging to send my jacket to me which arrived in perfect condition. I am really looking forward to my daughter's wedding when I can show off my gorgeous outfit. Best regards Diane (Baillie).
Today I collected my Mother of the Bride outfit from your boutique. The alterations that Cathy has made are superb and the time she spent in personalising my Condici outfit is much appreciated. Thank you Cathy. I would not hesitating recommending Nigel and all the staff to other friends.
