Pressing service

I would like to offer a new service to the brides of the far south coast. Being a dressmaker means I am incredibly experienced with Ironing. I have decided to take this skill and offer it up in a very special way.

The day before your wedding or the morning of I am offering a service to come to where you will be getting ready and press your wedding dress.

If your dress has gotten a little crinkled in its bag it can be pressed and hung so that it looks perfect for your big day. It doesn’t matter if it is silk or not or if I have made it for you or not.

For the first hour I charge $100. This includes me coming to you with my good iron and Ironing board. I will press your wedding dress and veil and make sure it is hanging perfectly, ready for your big day. Depending on your dress this hour may also give me time to press some bridesmaids dresses also.

For further hours I charge $60. I am happy to stay and press as much as you need including men’s shirts and outfits for family who are not in the bridal party.

If you pass me a list of what needs to be done I can calculate how long this will take and work out a fixed price with you.

These prices are for brides between Eden and Bega. If you live further away I am still happy to come but will discuss with you a further charge for travel.


Apple season

If you have driven between Canberra and Bega recently you may have noticed that all the road side apples are coming into fruit. This is good news for anyone who likes to make free cider or anyone who is having their wedding this time next year and is looking for something unusual to include in their flowers.

In truth the apples were probably best to use for floral arrangements a few weeks ago, if they are too ripe they are more likely to drop off their branches.

Above are some apples growing between Candelo and Bemboka. These are red but I have also seen green apples in places if that will match your colour scheme.

Apples included in a bouquet.
