Yes. Please email to arrange a free consultation to discuss your wedding dress requirements.

The consultation will take about 2 hours where we will discuss your ideas, try on some different styles of tops and skirts to create the silhouette for your bespoke gown and look at fabric samples to see what type of fabric you would like.

No, the consultation is free of charge with no obligation.

I have two different wedding dress designing packages. The Full Bespoke option takes about 8 months to 1 year to complete The Couture option takes 4-6 months. (Some shorter timescales can be accommodated so please do enquire)

All my dresses are bespoke for each individual client and made to fit you personally. I do have a range of different style tops and skirts from sizes 8 - 22 that can be tried on to create your bespoke dress design which I will then make up for you in your chosen fabric adjusted to your size. As I am not a high street shop I unfortunately do not carry stock.

My studio is not very big so I would normally say that yourself and a maximum of two other people.

Once you have decided to go ahead with having your bespoke wedding dress made then you are more than welcome to take photos at each fitting.

Again I do not have stock to sell but I can make you a perfect veil to go with your wedding dress.

No, I am afraid I don't.

No, sorry.

I can also design and make dresses for your bridesmaids. I do not carry stock for you to purchase.

As we go through the dress making process with each fitting adjustments will be made for the perfect fit. These are included in my fee. If however you have bought your dress from a high street shop and need help with alterations then please get in touch.

I offer two packages the Bespoke package is £1,500 plus fabric costs and the Couture package is £1,200 plus fabric.

Our Sustainability Commitments

My fabric suppliers now offer a vast range of eco fabrics made from sustainably sourced materials. These include satin, mikado, taffeta, crepe, organza, net, tulle and cotton lace.
