Cherished Gowns UK angel gowns for angel babies

One of our volunteer mentors Glenys Risdale received a heart wrenching letter with a UK wedding dress donation from a bride.

 Dear Glenys

Please find my wedding dress for you to transform.

I must add that this is a double sort of donation because not only did I have a still born baby girl many years ago, but my husband died 2 years ago..

We were only actually married for 2 years too.

I hope this dress causes nothing but peace for all that wear what you make

(thank you)


Here is what Glenys did


Glenys, a former professional Seamstress, was touched to receive this letter from the donating bride after she forwarded the picture above


OMG Glenys!!! I'm speechless! These beautiful tiny precious gowns and the rest too. It made me cry to see such perfect creations. I'm so very very happy. I know if I could have had one for my little angel I would have been a comforted and very grateful at the time.

There are not many things in life that create some joy from deep sadness, but the amazing work you do is just that Glenys. I know I will eternally remember this whole process and it will warm my heart on my darkest days.

I feel humbled and can finally start to close my own chapter of loss too.

Thank you Glenys. I mean that from the bottom of my soul.

Our volunteer Carolyn Harper received this lovely note from her donator

These are absolutely gorgeous!

You're super talented, and I can't thank you enough for keeping me updated.


Had a little lump in my throat because I feel this is the final bit of that chapter closed now as my divorce came through on the 8th September and my name was officially changed by to Cheston on the 29th. 

Thank you for your involvement 

And once again, you have made a stunning job of my dress

Thank you


Another lovely letter to Carolyn Harper

Dear Carolyn


I am absolutely blown away by these. You have done such a beautiful job transforming my old wedding dress into such gorgeous little gowns.  I am thrilled to bits to see the photos. Thank you SO much.

I am so thrilled with them. I've just shown my 91 year old Dad and he can't believe how many gorgeous gowns and nappies you made out of the dress he walked me down the aisle in!       Very best wishes


Volunteer Susie Gardiner received this from her Bride.

Omg!  I'm so happy that it's been used for such a wonderful purpose xx    yes please email photos as I have a lot of friends wishing to see them....... so excited and happy.     Thank you for everything that you do xxxxxx
