Rhonda Hemmingway is an award-winning designer with 20 years experience creating 'made to measure' wedding dresses and evening gowns. She describes herself as an artist and is seen as a very authentic couturier in the wedding industry because of her ability to design, cut, assemble and sew a gown from beginning to end.
Rhonda's passion for providing a genuine and personal service is experienced by every bride that walks through the doors of her boutique in Double Bay, Sydney. Some of her Australian celebrity clients have included Sandra Sully, Charli Delaney, Noni Hazelhurst and Susie Porter.
With all of her experience Rhonda has come up with some top tips for brides:
- Your gown must be well cut, beautifully made and the perfect fit. If you have made the right choice (for you) then you will be seen as one of the most beautiful brides ever.
- Don't stress and don't lose too much weight. Try really hard to not go too far as it doesn't look like you anymore.
- Rely on the people you have chosen to help you with your wedding. Tell your suppliers what you want and put your trust in them. Try really hard to relax!
