Brides Un-Veiled

Brides Veiled or Un-Veiled

It’s your day!  You want the dress, the cake, the car, the whole darn thing – including your dream hair!  Long, short, up, down, curled, straight – to veil or not to veil, that is the question.

A Gown by Any Other Colour…

William Shakespeare wrote;

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
