We were delighted to hear from one of our brides – Talia following her recent wedding in her long sought after Sophia Tolli wedding gown. Talia was one of the brides we got particularly close to during her dress search and we couldn’t have been more pleased to hear that her wedding day was as incredibly wonderful as she deserved! Talia has sent us a review of her experience with us, which I hope you will enjoy reading as much as we did…
Talia Masters (nee Hattotuwa)
What can I say! It’s been just over a month since I became Mrs Masters and I’m still on cloud 9!!! I first saw “the one” featuring in a new season collection bridal dress magazine. I immediately googled Sophia Tolli ‘Mynah’ to see where near me sold it – to my delight and astonishment it was Lisa Rose – this was because I have been dancing since I was 3 years old and every Saturday morning I walked past the shop and told my mum “one day I’ll buy my dress from there!” – who knew that the 3 year old me was right!!
I immediately rang the shop (this was about December 2014) where the beautiful Kyla answered the phone to me – “Mynah is a beautiful dress isn’t it, but it hasn’t come into store yet.” I was gutted, as all I wanted to do was try this dress on! I phoned Kyla most likely every other week for months when she finally phoned me saying that ‘Mynah’ is starring in the 2015 wedding show at the NEC!! No more said, I gathered my bridesmaids and booked tickets!!
The day finally came and the Lisa Rose stand was super busy!!! I chose a couple of dresses and walked to Kyla and said “Have you got it? Is the dress here??” She giggled and said it must be fate as the dress I picked up was ‘Mynah’!! I walked into the changing room and put the gown on, and saw my maid of honour fill up with tears! When I walked out in front of everyone I heard so many people whispering about the dress I was literally shaking!! I turned around and looked at myself and was just amazed!! No question in my mind, it was “the one”.
Kyla has been so supportive to me and I couldn’t have asked for anyone nicer to be my bride dress consultant!! All the ladies at Lisa Rose are so genuinely lovely and honest they did not push me and just agree with me to ‘make a sale’, they bent over backwards to make everything perfect for me!! When my final fitting day came, the lovely Sam was just as excited and nervous as I was, but I literally had butterflies like the first time I saw the dress in the magazine!! The dress, Kyla and Sam were truly amazing and I’m so lucky that they were there to be a part of my journey from Miss Hattotuwa to now Mrs Masters!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!! I will miss seeing you all. I truly felt like I was the only girl in the room when I came to see you all! I will pop in from time to time to say hello I promise you that!! XXXX
