Testimonials

Marianne created the most beautiful Irish christening gown for my first grandchild in a short window of time and it was everything I could have wished. My husband, who loved being Irish, passed away when my sons were teenagers and special events like weddings and christenings are bittersweet. Having this beautiful Irish christening gown was a way to include him in the ceremony and create a new family tradition. It made our day more special. Anyone buying from Marianne would never be disappointed!
