I met Suzanne before Christmas when she came along to Miss Bush in Ripley for her designer day. Apparently she loved the photographs I captured, and so when it came to capturing her designer day at Suzanne Neville Knightsbridge, I got the call!
Despite designing for high profile clients and many a celeb (including one who popped in for a fitting on the day I was there), Suzanne offers a diverse range of fabulous evening and bridal wear, and is well know for her signature structured bodices. Having photographed brides wearing Suzanne Neville, I can tell you that their frocks look just as amazing at the end of the night as they did when they stepped in to them that morning. Whilst some designers do seem to favour a certain body shape, Suzanne’s designs look splendid on everyone, and I LOVE that being both designed AND made in Britain is still so important to the integrity of her brand. Suzanne Neville is now available to brides around the world, but her dresses are still created at her Harrow workshop. In this day and age, that is something pretty special.
Now how can I say this without sounding cheesy? Well I’m just going to say it. Suzanne is absolutely lovely, approachable, extremely hard working, and from what I have seen, offers her brides a wonderfully personal service.
Suzanne, thank you for inviting me to spend the day with you and your wonderful staff, it was an absolute delight.
