We specialise in creating bespoke dresses for the modern bride inspired by the past, feel perfect for now, and are tailored to you.
It all starts with an initial meeting where we look at and discuss any of your ideas. This may be magazine clippings, a Pinterest board, or images of dresses you've already tried on. It is a good idea to not only look at wedding dresses, as very often the design may stem from a favourite dress you've seen or already own. We are here to piece all the little bits together for you.
Perhaps you have seen a dress on the red carpet, or tried something that was almost right, or maybe you have a completely original idea that just isn't out there. And whilst we will never copy something exactly, we will create something that's entirely unique to you.
The next step is finalising your design from a selection we have sketched for you. Once you are happy with your design we can start on the exciting task of choosing your fabrics!
Often brides will have a piece of jewellery from a family member, or perhaps a piece of lace, veil, or just a simple button from a mother's or grandmother's dress. This is the perfect time to work out how it can be incorporated, whether big or small.
There will then be a toile fitting, which is a mock-up of the dress made in a basic fabric. This is to get the fit right and also allows the design be tweaked. For example, a longer sleeve, or add a belt, or to have more volume in the skirt.
The beauty of having a dress made bespoke is that it allows you to get exactly what you want. We will then make your dress in the real fabrics and have another fitting to make sure everything is perfect.
At your final fitting you will then be able to take your beautiful dress home.
This will be at least 3 weeks before your wedding date. (Please let us know if you are travelling for your Wedding and need your dress earlier)
In order for there to be plenty of time to get your dress perfected, we need at least 6 months of making time before your wedding date.
(If it will be 3 months or less, contact us for more information)
