Annalise Harvey. Truly. Originally. You.
“A Bride is as much the heroine of her own intricately choreographed romance as the white swan ‘Odette’ of Tchaikovsky’s ‘Swan Lake’. And, just as Odette would never wear just any white frock – a Bride’s gown should reflect who she is and who she’d like to be, and yet, be as comfortable to her as a second skin. With my years of experience and you as insipiration we can create a gown which is graceful, elegant and totally unique.” The new Nostalgia collection is now also available to purchase. Annalise is based in Princes House, Princes Street, Truro, TR1 2EY.
