Your dress is inspected on input and any risks in cleaning will be pointed out to you. It is then prepared for dry cleaning, immersed in dry cleaning fluid, on its own in the machine, dried with utmost care and finished by hand. It takes three presses to achieve the final finished product. Your dress is then cooled and packed in acid free tissue, placed in a non woven garment bag for long term storage. We wont’ use boxes because they crease the garment and unless acid free can damage the dress over long term storage.
We know just how much emotion is tied up in your wedding gown and we try and cherish this sentiment by caring for your gown at every stage of the process. Alas not all marks can be removed and mud is particularly difficult. Faddies, however have developed a special technique for removing mud but we can only undertake the process at your risk. Some brides regard stubborn stains as part of the memory: walking in gardens; dancing the night away or that frisky glass of champagne. Faddies are expert and you cannot leave your gown in safer hands.
Your veil will be hand cleaned and preserved with the gown.
If you have purchased a second hand gown or shop model why not try our refresh service. All stains are removed and your gown is pressed and stored as new awaiting that very special day.
