Bride in Cymbeline

Sophie chooses Cymbeline for her nautical wedding

3 October 2019

Fit is everything when it comes to your wedding dress. It is so important that our brides are able to move about freely on their wedding day – to mingle with their guests, get close to their groom and, well, go sailing on a yacht!

Sophie came to see us with only one month to go before her big day. Whilst we don’t advocate leaving it this late to choose your dress, we will certainly do everything possible to help our brides have the dress of their dreams! To make things even more interesting, Sophie told us that she would be taking a trip with her Husband-to-be, Tristan, aboard his yacht  ‘Full Chat’, which he owns with her Uncle. After their ceremony, they would travel from St Thomas’s Church, Lymington down to Berthon (where Sophie works), and then sail onto the Royal Lymington Yacht Club down the River Lym where their reception was to be held to complete their very nautical wedding!

Sophie’s words about her big day:

“Turns out a Cymbeline wedding dress and a boat go pretty well together! It was amazingly easy to move around in, and I even climbed over the guard wires to get on board. I felt so good on the day and everyone loved the dress. I will always remember Tristan’s face when I got to the alter and he looked at the train and me and just said WOW. I just want to wear it again now! I didn’t even bother to bustle the train as I was so in love with it I just kept swinging around on the dance floor. At one point everyone picked up an edge of the dress and I was like a whirling dervish haha!

We are still absolutely buzzing from the day it really was amazing.”

Sophie’s kind words on her Sass & Grace experience:

“Thank you for all your help, it felt like it was meant to be, even only finding a dress with a month to go!! I got to the point where it felt like I was never going to find a dress and with your help I did. I reckon I must have tried on around 50 dresses in 3 months!! Of course thank you to Dalia for her skills, the dress was the perfect length!!

I will always remember driving to the barn on my way to the 2nd fitting, I’d had a horrible day at work and driving through the lanes to you I instantly relaxed. I have already told a colleague of mine to come and see you.”

Congratulations Sophie and Tristan!

Congratulations Sophie & Tristan! We wish you many happy years together xxx
