Plum tree identification - purple leaf

I was hoping to get the same plum tree i have seen in another garden, but cant find.  Its a really beautifully shaped tree, slightly weeping. VERY vivid purple leaves at this time of year.  Its definitely a tree for fruit, not an ornamental though,  purple plums very good flavour. 

Anybody know this one?  I can get pics.

    Just bumping this up for you in case anyone can help. image

    Could be worth taking a look at one of the  fruit tree specialist sites online to see if you can get any ideas though. A pic would probably be a big help.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    The fruit is a large purple plum though, not small, an eating plum definitely.  This is a bit of a mystery as the owner is definitely not the type to go for something unusual or expensive, so i did think it would be easy to find.
