There are samples to try on and fabrics to look at and if nothing catches your eye Elizabeth will source fabric specially for you. Each client has a personal pattern made to her measurements and a toile fitting (practice outfit in calico) at this fitting the garment can be altered and fine tuned before being cut in the actual fabric. Two to three further fittings will be required and more for complicated designs and wedding gowns. All garments are hand finished and hand beading is Elizabeth's speciality. Family and friends are welcome to attend consultations and fittings. Take a look at their website to find out more and don't hesitate to contact them.
There was a journey from the moment I met Elizabeth to the day my mother of the bride dress was ready to wear. First we sat together and I explained the whole concept of the wedding, the venue, the guests and my daughter ‘s ideas. Then we chose the fabric together. And only then the real creation of the dress began. We had to make a few changes as the dress was taking shape at each fitting. Elizabeth was very keen and never tired to do all the alterations until I was completely satisfied with the look. She also created the headpiece to match the dress. The whole ensemble turned out to be a masterpiece. I highly recommend Elizabeth and the entire experience I had with the wedding dress.
Thank you Tihu I enjoyed every moment of the journey x
Elizabeth Bessant's response
Elizabeth made a wonderful outfit for me to wear at my eldest daughter's wedding complete with fascinator and matching handbag. It was a perfect fit and a pleasure to wear. My daughter was so impressed with Elizabeth's creative flair she asked her to design her wedding dress and the bridesmaid's dresses. It will come as no surprise that Elizabeth was the chosen designer when my second daughter got married. Nothing is too much trouble for her. A friendly yet professional five star service.
