Dear Robin and Jennifer,
I hope you both are doing well during all of this craziness.
Please accept my very tardy email to you… life got a little crazy after our wedding last August plus, I think I was in slight denial that it was all over!
I came into your boutique about this time last year, with a dress I bought online. It was far too long and basically after one quick glance from your expert eyes… it would need to be completely taken apart. Yikes.
You had a few pre-EOFY sale dresses in the back and offered to show them to me.
I really grappled with my dress buying journey. I’m petite so it was always a challenge to envision what the dress would look like, less 15 clips and 3 feet shorter. Also, my mom and closest friends are back in Canada.
I really didn’t want the emphasis of our wedding to be on a dress nor did I want to spend a fortune for something I’d wear once. Not your ideal client I’m sure!
I had been shopping with family and friends during a trip back home to Canada, been to a number of showroom sales in Sydney, tried vintage/second hand and scoured online. It was all getting pretty exhausting!
The second dress I tried… I loved! It needed some alterations but I couldn’t believe the luck. I returned only for one fitting and that was it! High slit on point!
Well, getting it home, I quickly decided it needed some extra oomph (drama not design). You very quickly crafted a dreamy overskirt. Then, that was it!
Thank you so very much for your patience with me. And, for quickly advising my online purchase was not ideal haha!
I absolutely LOVED the dress as if it had been crafted just for me. So comfortable, the perfect beachside chic ensemble. It was breezy, whimsical, classy, sexy. The overskirt; so fun and bouncy. It was unbuttoned for a fab reveal during our first (choreographed) dance.
I’ve included some images that you are very welcome to use. Mostly glamour shots but also shared a bit of our day and night 😄
Thank you again and all the best as you return to business as usual!

Dear Robyn and Jenny,
This is my very belated thank you for making me such a magical dress for my wedding. Thank you for making something so beautiful and for making everything about the process so enjoyable. As I told everyone, I really felt I found two fairy godmothers when I wandered into your shop.
I have included some photos to show you how well it turned out.
My thanks again and if I can leave a review or do something to help let others know how wonderful you are, I would be very happy to do so.
Hi Robyn and Jennifer,
Thank you so so much for my amazing dress and veil, I am so glad I made the last min decision to buy the veil from you, it just looks stunning in every photo (even when the groom is standing on it) . Everyone loved the dress so much, my now husband thought it was stunning.
Thank you again, you really did make me the most perfect dress, it was more than I ever imagined it would be.
I just wanted to email and say thank you for the beautiful dress you helped me create.
The experience working with you was lovely and the finished result amazing!
I’ve had a lot of questions of where I got my dress from 😊
Thank you again.
Dear Jenny and Robin
I just wanted to say thank you so much for my beautiful dress!
I am so grateful and am so sad I can only wear it once!
Thank you so, so much,
Hi Robin + Jennifer,
This email has been a long time coming and I apologise for it taking me so long to do .
Firstly, thank you so so so much for the amazingly beautiful wedding dress that you designed and made for me. It was absolutely perfect and looked so beautiful on the day and was better than I could have ever imagined.
I always said I would never get my wedding dress made because I couldn’t not know exactly what it would look like, or if it would fit right, but you both made the experience so easy and not scary at all with your kindness and willingness to explain every tiny thing to me – and my entorague!!!
Attached are some photos of the dress and wedding day that I thought you might like to see.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here are some photos of my wedding day, I seriously cannot thank you enough for making me the dress of my dreams! You made the whole process so incredible and it ended up being more beautiful than I could have hoped for.
All my love
True! I am so lucky that you made my dress!! You are so talented & I have loved everything you made for me dearly. A few years ago I wore this dress to the opera house (with the black sash that you gave me). So much love! Xxx
Thank you so much for my beautiful gown! I loved wearing it and got so many compliments.
I just received some photos today and thought you might like to see them.
Hello Lovely Sisters,

Many, many thanks for the gorgeous dress! It was the highlight of a great wedding. All the best from Vienna. Gaby
She had an amazing time & looked absolutely gorgeous. She received so many compliments on her dress. Thank you for designing & making her dream dress. She felt like the bell of the ball. I’ll be back in 2 years for her sisters’ formal dress. Kaye Williams
Jenny and Robin at Nelder Jones were absolutely fantastic! They helped make my daughter’s and my experience of designing and creating a unique gorgeous dress so easy. Nothing was ever too much trouble. They are so accomplished and professional and it was always delightful to spend time with as we went on this journey together. My daughter looked lovely and had so much pleasure wearing her beautiful dress. I recommend them to everyone. Pam Maule
The girls at Nelder Jones made me the wedding dress of my dreams from a tiny magazine cut-out picture. The fit was amazing, the fabric perfect, and the design intelligent – the experience shows. Everyone commented on how gorgeous my dress was, and I felt quite gorgeous in it. They did a really amazing job – they know their stuff! Also, super cute accessories that they make, combs etc. Janet Nork
I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful wedding dress and bracelet you made me. My wedding was the most wonderful experience of my life and the stunning dress and bracelet I was wearing definitely contributed to that. I’d heard so many horror stories about trying to find a wedding dress, but you both made it so easy and were so fantastic to work with. It was a pleasure to have you involved in my big day. Thank you so much. Joy
Hello Robyn and Jenny,
We had such a wonderful time celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary!
As promised, attached are photos of my wedding dress made at the Glenmore Road shop in 1985 and in it’s new style in 2015. Along the way, not only have I shared 30 years with a wonderful husband but a great son came into our lives. I also have a photo of the dress you made when I was matron of honour for my cousin in 1998. My kelpie, Billy, is very curious!
You have always made beautiful dresses for the most important days in my life and I look forward to a new Nelder-Jones dress to wear to my son’s wedding to his beautiful fiancee in August 2016.
Thanks again for helping create such lovely memories.
Hope you ladies are doing well!
I just got married in January and I just felt so beautiful in my dress you made me!
It was absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much again for all your hard work on my dress, its more than I could ever dream of!
I don’t have my professional pictures just yet but I remember you wanted a picture of the dress at the wedding! I can send you a professional picture when they are done being edited, but here is the best one I have so far!
