Dankie vir jou deeglikheid, goeie oog en vriendelikheid met al my passings !
Ek het nie vir een oomblik oor my rok bekommer nie. Ek het pragtig gevoel en was so gemaklik.

Bernice Gaum (Sapphire dress by Anna Georgina)

Corné knew exactly what I wanted, and she ensured that I was not only satisfied with my dress in the end but absolutely blown away, I couldn’t be happier. She was always available and managed to calm me down every time the nerves took over. My dress and veil looked absolutely exquisite and I felt like royalty on my day.
