    . the tailor who sewed my traditional wedding blue outfit, All my parents' utfits for both weddings AND some of our asoebi friends' outfits was a man named Matthew. Absolutely phenomenal humble guy that's very talented.

    Try 07947944296

    The woman who sewed my bridesmaids dresses is a lady called esther. She lives in Hornchurch close to me. she's on 01708 702 968 or 07947530552

    They are all my personal tailors Hve known them for years but had to allocate the outifts to tailors all over london in the run up to the wedding as we easily had 60 diff outfits to sew in such a shsort space of time

    Thanks again Uche. Where is Matthew based I live in the South East? I am still trying to buy my lace and my head is spinning from all the different suggestions did you get your material from Liverpool street?
