Incredibly talented and all round wonderful human being is how I'd best describe Susanne Christyne.
I first met Susanne when my sister got her to design her wedding dress 3 years ago and she was absolutely amazing. So it seemed only fitting that when it was my turn, I went to see her first. From start to finish Susanne makes you feel like you are the only bride in the world. She takes you through every process so carefully and listens exactly to what you want, like or dislike. I wasn't having a 'big fancy do' so I was running a bit late on the dress front and my style is a bit 'alternative' so I knew I wouldn't be able to get something off the peg but Susanne managed to create a dress unique to me. It pleasantly surprised my family and friends while still giving me witchy/Stevie nicks sleeves that I instantly fell in love with. She also sorted me out with the most loveliest hairstylist which took a lot of stress away.
I never thought I would have went for a 'traditional' wedding gown but I'm so happy I did and so grateful it was Susanne that designed and made it. My dress survived a beer garden reception, a trip to Glencoe and I can't wait to wear it again on our actual reception next year.
I have been recommending Susanne to everyone since my sister got married and I honestly urge any bride to be to make an appointment with her. You will not be disappointed - she simply is the best in the business.
I booked in with Susanne as my first and only experience going into a bridal store was not positive in the slightest. I felt conscious of myself and figure and being put in a room full of other brides and people was not my idea of fun. I loved the fact it was all one on one meetings with Susanne. It makes the experience of being a bride feel so much more special. When I had ideas running through my head Susanne guided me in the right direction. The outcome of my dress is more than I could have ever dreamed of. The moment I put my dress on I was so overwhelmed with emotion, this was the dress I knew I always wanted and it was mine.
When I went to see Susanne to discuss my wedding dress I wasn't sure what I wanted. I'd never had an idea of a dream dress in my head and with the covid situation I didn't like the idea of going round lots of different wedding dress shops to try things on, particularly as my mum and bridesmaids would be unable to join me. At my initial appointment we discussed all the things I thought I wanted in a dress and Susanne created a beautiful design that I just loved. I was so excited/nervous when I went to try on my finished dressed and was so delighted with the end result. The dress was absolutely beautiful and I loved wearing it on my wedding day. I feel incredibly lucky to get to wear it again later this year for our wedding part 2! The whole experience was magical and I would recommend Susanne Christyne bridal 100%.
I went to see Susanne after looking at lots of pictures of dresses online and going to some dress shops. I knew then that I would not find a dress off the peg that was exactly what I wanted. Upon arriving my mum, my maid of honour and I we were warmly welcomed into Susanne's studio. I described to Susanne and Lauren what I imagined my princess style dress would look like and immediately they pulled together parts of dresses which allowed me to see my vision in real life. I loved it and said yes to the dress! I loved going to my dress fittings, the attention to detail and service given by Susanne was second to none. I cannot thank Susanne enough for my dream dress!"
Having originally booked my first appointment with Susanne on 29.04.2018 for my wedding on 20.08.20, at Crossbasket Castle I had begun the initial design process for my gown.
I had known Susanne for many years and there was just no one else I would have trusted to design my wedding dress. Her knowledge, her visions of what she had for me I completely trusted her 110%
Unfortunately we received some bad news regarding my Dad in December 2018 we had to bring the wedding forward to 2019. Susanne and Lauren were both beyond accommodating. She squeezed me in even though she was fully booked she couldn’t have helped me anymore. I was whisked in for a complete design change on my original dress as we had to move venue as well. Susanne knew exactly what I was looking for in my dress and began to work on designs and fabrics immediately.
The next step for me was the hardest, as it was only a matter of weeks (11 weeks to go) I wouldn’t see my dress until “the finished article”. It was so hard for me, however I trusted Susanne 110%.
She kept in touch regularly, provided updates and photos of fabrics, stones and the design of the jewels on my dress. I did attend a fitting prior to the final stage to ensure my measurements were the same.
On the day of the “reveal” I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe that from nothing except from my ideas appeared the most beautiful dress I could have ever imagined. It was everything I had wished for and more!
Susanne and Lauren had made my dreams come true.
On the day of our wedding, I had booked Lauren to dress me as we didn’t have any Bridesmaids. Lauren was amazing! She came to both the hotel and the venue. She kept me so calm, ensured my dress was perfect, which it was. The fit, the fabric, the design was just out of this world!
When we arrived at the venue, Lauren fixed my dress and literarily walked me to the back of the isle, stretched my dress all the way out so I could have the most incredible walk with my stunning gown around me.The photos are incredible, both outside at the hotel and the venue.
I will never be able to say thank you so much to Susanne and Lauren, and I cannot recommend enough. Their visions of their brides, the way you are looked after, and their customer service is second to none. I loved my gown so much and to see it come to life was a fairy tale!
Thank you again girls, you truly are the best!
Susanne created my Dream Wedding Dress, I actually still can't believe how much I loved it.
I am so lucky that my sister is a bridal designer – Susanne Christyne Bridal. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her, she designed the dress of my dreams and made my most perfect dress. My dress was everything I wanted and more.
I cannot thank you enough Susanne! xxx
