Getting To Know Susanna Greening Designs…
Today we’re having a natter with Susanna Greening Designs, one of our newest suppliers on our Cream of the Crop Wedding Directory, and we can’t wait for you to find out a little more about Susie’s wonderful work. An ultra-talented wedding professional, Susie offers a bespoke service for brides who want something unique for their aisle style. So, it’s time to get reading brides-to-be…
Susie, tell us a little bit about your unique wedding dresses and bridal wear?
“I design and create dresses that are for todays modern bride, rooted in vintage influence. I use only the finest silks, laces and processes to create truly beautiful and completely bespoke dresses.”
Do you cater for bridesmaids?
“Yes, I strive to offer a full service to make my clients weddings as special and unique as they are, so as well as creating dream wedding dresses I also offer a full bespoke bridesmaid service, following a similar process to a wedding dress. I also have a small collection of bridesmaid separates available to view at my studio that can be made to order in requested sizes and colours. For any little ones cute flower girl or ‘mini-maid’ outfits can be created in a complementary design and fabric.
For the guys I make bespoke waistcoats in a variety of fine fabrics as well as bespoke ties in a wide choice of colours and print, including Liberty of London fabrics.”
What do you feel makes your service stand out from the crowd?
“Recognising that each bride is individual and unique, I offer a completely personal experience. I love getting to know each of my brides individually so that I can create a dress that is lovingly made with them in mind from start to finish, down to each special, little touch. Clients can feel free to let their creativity and imagination run wild, allowing me to create a dress to fit them and their day making sure it will be perfect!”
Describe the experience that brides can expect from Susanna Greening Designs?
“Once a bride has contacted me I will arrange for them to come for a consultation held at my beautiful studio in my home in Matlock. With beautiful views over the Derbyshire countryside we can discuss ideas over tea (or Prosecco!) and biscuits/cake! I have a huge selection of fabric samples to look through and you can view my existing collection of dresses and separates for inspiration. Once a design and fabrics have been finalised I will arrange another appointment that will involve fitting a mock up of your dress in a plain fabric. This will be to finalise any design details and to make sure we get the perfect fit. Following this I will usually see my bride twice more, once for a fitting of her dress in the chosen fabric and once with the finished dress to make sure its absolutely perfect for their big day! Brides are free to bring maids and mums along to fittings, it’s always a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere where brides can feel comfortable and confident that their dream dress is in great hands!”
What do you love the most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
“The wedding industry is such a wonderful industry to be part of, everyone is always so lovely and approachable, I’ve met and worked with some fabulous suppliers as well as having the most amazing clients. There is absolutely no better feeling than seeing a bride have the best time on their wedding day looking beautiful, confident and truly unique in a dress that I have created just for her!”
What’s the most popular choice of wedding dress?
“Recently the most popular choice of wedding dress I have been requested to design and make has been a simple and elegant long, sleek silhouette in the most beautiful silk.”
What’s the best way to get in touch with you to discuss an upcoming wedding?
