Joanna & Chris
Joanna & Chris had an intimate wedding at The Miskin Manor, Groesfaen.
They both knew that they’d found ‘the one’ and, after making the decision to get married, the whole wedding was organised in just 8 weeks!

“I had driven past Sentiments so many times and always looked over to the window display to see the latest gowns on show” says Joanna.
“Once we had booked the venue I knew I had very little time to find the right wedding dress and I knew that wherever I bought it I would have to buy either off-the-peg or on the sale rail. After having a disappointing experience with another bridal boutique the previous week I took the plunge and called into Sentiments to ask what they could recommend for my situation. I booked an appointment for the following Saturday and arrived nervously with my mum and mum-in-law to be.”
“From the moment we entered the shop we were warmly welcomed and treated so well by the staff. After explaining my timescale I was shown all the dresses that were available in a short timeframe and I was able to choose the styles I liked. I tried a couple of dresses on and ended up trying a dress for the colour style, with Michelle the bridal assistant joking in the changing room that knowing my luck I would fall in love with the dress despite this style not being available in the timescale I needed. By coincidence the sample dress I tried on was my size and as I walked out into the viewing area and turned to face the full length mirror I burst into tears. I had the ‘moment’!”
Michelle knew how much I loved the dress and asked Maria the owner if I could buy the dress I had on there and then, explaining my reaction and my situation. I couldn’t believe she said yes and I walked out of the shop that day carrying my wedding dress.”
