Mastermind of Oh Dina! millinery, Nicole McInnis, really is a one-of-a-kind person. She is so kind and creative, and is genuinely interested in each bride's wedding day, and seems to be able to step into a bride's mind and grab hold of their vision. Nicole did a custom bridal headpiece for my wedding last month, and after sharing hours of laughs and stories (and getting down to the nitty-gritty of fascinator inspiration, of course), I left her studio feeling confident she would create a piece that represented me and my vision. Truly, she is a unique individual who is always so warm and welcoming, and yet is a true professional, enjoys each day labouring away in her studio, and puts her whole self into every millinery piece she creates.
I find it difficult to share my experience with Nicole in very few words. She is an incredible business woman full of passion and creativity. I was so impressed after my first consultation at Oh Dina! Every aspect of my wedding was discussed, in great detail. There was no lack of communication! But learning and listening to her clients preferences was her goal. She offered some suggestions to include family jewellery, which was very special. I had a similar (and smaller) piece made for my daughter as well. During the process, Nicole always shared enthusiasm and excitement. I was shocked to see them together when she finished. So beautiful and so perfect. We received hundreds of compliments, and always directed them to the deserving person. In fact, a waitress loved my daughters a little too much - she tried to leave with it at the end of the night! I'm so grateful to have these unique (and local!) keepsakes from our wedding. I would recommend OH DINA! to EVERYONE!
I find it difficult to summarize my experience with Nicole in only a few words. She is an incredible business woman filled with passion and creativity. I was so inspired after my first consultation at Oh Dina! In order to create the perfect custom headpiece, she noted every detail about our wedding. There was no lack of communication! But learning and listening for her clients requests was her priority. She shared some examples to help narrow down your preferences. She also encouraged personalizing even further, by adding family jewellery. That was so special. I had a smaller version of my headpiece made for my daughter.

We received many compliments and always directed them to the deserving person.

Nicole is such a creative and talented woman, her handmade pieces are made with an enormous amount of talent and perfection and add the missing piece to any outfit. I have worked with Nicole on many projects, and personally own a significant collection of her headpieces and flowercrowns. Her custom bridal work is beyond the loveliest we have ever seen or photographed, and we recommend her work to all of our brides. She has such a warm and infectious personality, and a smile that will melt your heart. She puts her heart and soul into every single creation, and I am very thankful to have her in my creative circle.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience was with Nicole at Oh Dina! Millinery. had the absolute pleasure to work with her on the amazing pieces for my wedding. She took creative elements from different pieces of her's that I liked and came up with a stunning unique yellow sculptural fascinator for me. The Tiger Lilly coloured feather fascinators for the bridesmaids pulled elements from the wedding together. The finishing touch was the two pieces that she made for my mother and mother-in-law - two vintage broaches with guinea hen feathers that could be worn on their jackets or in their hair. Every little beauty was special and unique and made the women in the wedding feel special too. She was easy to communicate with, her pieces arrived on time, she was excited to work with me on my wedding, she really listened to me and she took my limited ideas and made something beyond my wildest imagination. I would come to her again in a heartbeat for a special event.
I spent the four years of my engagement dreaming up the perfect wedding dress, so I didn’t want to stick anything in my hair as an afterthought. I contacted Nicole at Oh Dina! and she was just as excited as I was to dream up the perfect look for me. My custom crystal hand beaded halo looked so romantic in my portraits with my husband. She also made me a flower crown for the reception incorporating my wedding colours perfectly. My bridesmaids all had different dresses so Nicole created different pieces for each of them, to suit their hairstyles and dress colours. My custom Oh Dina! wedding collection made my bridesmaids and I look so put together and stylish while incorporating my wedding theme and colours. Nicole always had time to listen to my ideas, but her final creations went beyond what I could have imagined! Sweet as a peach and always prompt and professional, I recommend Oh Dina! to all stylish brides.
