“I’d just like to say a big thank you to Lynne who helped me choose my outfit for my son’s wedding on Thursday 1st June, I’d looked all over and was starting to panic 7 weeks before the big day, I told Lynne I like to be bright and colourful as I feel I don’t suit plain or pastel colours and as soon as she brought my outfit it I loved it and knew it was perfect for me, I have never had so many compliments on the big day! Everyone commented on how stunning it was and looks fab on the pics, I’ll send some on.
Thank you”
