CUSTOM DESIGN for the bride who wants a unique dress and the exhilarating experience of bringing it to life! This FUN and uplifting process begins with a Zoom or JRW Studio Session. It includes all of the above Styling aspects, as well as an illustrated Custom Design (or two) of your ideal gown (fully refundable off production cost). - This initial consultation and design is followed up by a further meeting a week later, when I present you with your unique Story Board and illustrated Bridal Gown designs (super-imposed with my unique "Paper Doll System" which provides a virtual image of you in your Custom JRW Designs).
Here is a snippet of what Custom Bride, Janine had to say:-
"The whole process of creating my bridal gown online with Joanne, has been unbelievably professional, far easier than anticipated and most importantly for me has been a really fun experience.”
STYLED to SHOP for the bride or client that is choosing to shop online or in store but is overwhelmed with the choices and what is absolutely ideal for her. During this session, I assess your body shape proportions, theme and personality. I use your inspirations and what really excites you; expertly guiding you with silhouettes, necklines, waistlines, accessories and fabrics, that are ideal for you! This equips you to shop online or at your favourite Bridal House with utmost confidence and provides a professional foundation of the best styles and trends for you (with minimum influence from a possibly biased salesperson or inexperienced friend). This requires an initial 1-hour session and then a 30 minute follow up, once I have spent a few hours compiling your Story Board.
Here's what our "Styled to Shop" client, Elisabeth had to say;
“I approached Joanne because I needed help to capture the kind of dress that will match my style and body type. We brainstormed few ideas together and she was able to come up with a clearer idea via a comprehensive Mood board. This allowed me to visualize what could fit best.
Also, my interaction was very easy, friendly with her and I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking to find “the” dress."
BRIDAL PARTY STYLING Session to help you co-ordinate and create your perfect story from Bridesmaids to Flower-girls, Groom to Groomsmen and all parents. It can be extremely difficult to work with colours and styles that look best on everyone (which you'll know if you've ever been a bridesmaid) and still use your wedding theme and colour palette! So friendly and EXPERT advice helps to relieve the extra stress and sleepless nights that seem to go hand-in-hand with this! You will also find that difficult people will take professional advice more easily, which takes the stress off of your shoulders - who wouldn't want that!
Snippets from recent clients about their Zoom sessions, "Great to see you on Zoom last night and thanks for your email. It’s all getting very exciting ☺️” and “Can’t wait to work with you. I am super excited 😆.”
"So, if you’re ready to have some FUN (no matter where you are in the world) and get excited about your gown, let’s book you in for your preferred Zoom session, to provide you with the confidence to shop or create a gown that is ideal for you in every way! " - Joanne Ross Wells.
Janine’s Zoom full review: -
“After trying on a number of dresses in bridal stores that were just "not quite right” and then the addition of social distancing and government restrictions due to COVID19, I thought finding my dream wedding was going to be impossible! However, from the moment I first spoke to Joanne on the phone I was instantly reassured that she could transform my vision into reality.
Joanne has established a highly professional online service, where she was easily able to establish the style of dress I wanted and then seamlessly worked with me to transform this into a perfectly curated design. By doing our design appointments via Zoom, Joanne could link PowerPoint presentations to our video consult to show me different design options, fabrics and quotes. In addition, the video enabled her to walk me through her studio to show me various styles and materials "live". Her online service lends itself to being incredibly personal, whereby you don't have to leave your own home to feel like you are in Joanne's design studio.
The whole process of creating my bridal gown online with Joanne, has been unbelievably professional, far easier than anticipated and most importantly for me has been a really fun experience.” - Janine.
