Client Corner ~ Sarah

Every now and again we receive pictures from all over the world by our clients and brides. We utterly gasped when Sarah sent us through her pics of her gorgeous wedding day in Italy. Sarah looks absolutely adorable, a bride straight from the pages of Italian Vogue if you ask me! I adore the vintage styling in Sarah's gown and her hubby looks equally 'dapper' in his tailoring.

Sarah opted for our Carina Long Sleeved Bolero in ivory raw silk to compliment her gown and we think she pulled off the entire look beautifully.

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Sarah for inviting us to be a part of such a special day for her and we hope you guys both enjoy the journey of life together.
Thanks to Sarah for letting us peak into her wedding day celebrations, it always makes our day to receive wedding pics back!!!

Latest Creation

Another Bonzie Bucket Bag on it's merry way to a dear customer in the U.S.
Cherie has been a loyal collector of bonzie bags since we introduced them into our range and it's always a pleasure creating something special for a gal who has been so supportive of our work.
We have also noticed a lot of blog commentary recently and wanted to say hi to all our regular readers who have been offering kind words of encouragement and all round general support for what we do. Whilst we don't often get much time on our blog to stop and chat we wanted to reach out and let you guys know that we read each and ever comment and we genuinely appreciate the support. It's lovely to see the regulars stop by so often to comment, it feels like we have a lovely big blog family who are coming along for the ride. :)
Will of course be keeping you all posted over the coming months on all the developments as upcoming projects unfold at bonzie headquarters!
So hears a special thanks to our loyal customers such as Cherie (who recently added the bag above to her collection of bonzie treats) and of course our blog readers. Thanks for being you!

Gals, simply had to share these latest client pics with you of an absolutely gorgeous little princess wearing our bonzie wrap. These are usually made for adults however this was a very special custom order in yellow which turned out so sweet on one of our smaller fashionistas.

It was a joy creating the wrap in miniature and we are so thrilled to pieces to have received these gorgeous snaps from her mom. What a wonderful little model!!

Dads Exhibition....

Ger looking lovely as always. Nice Brooch Ger!!! :)
This is a great capture! We popped nextdoor to a cool pub for a drink after the exhibition was over and Ger was checking out the red lighting! say no

For Sale.... oh wait, nope... Sold to Me.xx :)

This is the piece I bought on the night titled "Longboat" I just love the dramatic eerie tone to it!

Stunning Capture of Cahir Castle. This particular Castle and River was right outside the Exhibition Venue, the Doors opened out onto the river view and it was a beautiful balmy evening, people wondered in and out with wine to admire the castle for real before stepping back in to see it come to life as art too! It was pretty cool!!!

The Man of the moment, my Dad !! Giving a little speech of thank you's through a dose of the tremblies!

First pic here is a shot of St Thomas's Bridge near where my Grandad Grew up. It's a stunning location, has a real Lord of the Rings look to it!

Mags and Pat ( Dad's pals from Camera Club) and that little wee princess in the forefront is my only neice and godchild. :) drinking juice from a wine glass just to fit in with the adults. lol

Guys I can't even put into words tonight how proud I was of my Father last night. I would like to write something clever, something witty but emotion gets the better of me on this one and all I can say is how truelly proud I am ... Just when you think you can't possibly admire somebody anymore than you already do!!!

Well Done
