Led by Swiss trained Director Gabrielle Dowding, the award team of Black Swan brings these stories to life. From intimate to grand, from traditional or in a cathedral of trees, couples entrust Black Swan with one of the most significant moments of their lives. "Look in the mirror. That is beauty. Look at your fiance. That is your story. When we infuse those elements into a client's wedding, then we create brilliance." Gabrielle Dowding, Director
