I'm Jo, I'm 41, a full time Practice Nurse from Nottingham. I was introduced to Cherished by a friend from Australia!, She was a volunteer for a similar charity in Australia, I was so astounded by the stunning gowns she produced. Although busy with work and a keen cake decorator, I needed a new hobby that didn't involve hours of standing as recent knee surgery meant I needed a 'sit down hobby!'. I've enjoyed sewing as long as I can remember, having been taught by my Mum and made the rest up as I've gone along!...until only recently I still used the trusty old machine I've had since I was 12!. I was thrilled to find I too could provide such beautiful gowns to help parents here in the UK through what is doubtlessly one of the worst times of their lives.

When UK brides generously donate a wedding dress, we are always happy to provide pictures of a selection of gowns made from their dress. Here is a transformation from Jo, wonderful work!
