HOW IT WORKS

1


Initial consultation

Our team will work with you and your vision. We collaborate with you – we are not designers and we do not have a collection of designs. We work from scratch, but If you feel you need a designer, we will help you find one.

2


Choose your fabric

From organza, delicate silks and luxurious satins to beaded fabrics, lace and tulle, it is time to choose the fabric for your wedding dress. Of course, we will be on hand to give recommendations and we are very happy to work with fabrics you already own or want to source yourself.

3


Your toile fitting

The better your wedding dress fits, the better it will look. That is why we always create bridal designs in simple cotton first – this is known as ‘fitting the toile’. Our seamstresses will check your measurements and fabric choice – still plenty of time for you to amend and request changes before we move onto the next and most exciting stage of the process.

4


Making your wedding gown

Depending on its design, we will tailor your gown in two or three stages – which may require a few more fittings. We will start by ensuring the main bridal dress features are right, like the neckline, bodice, sleeves and hems, before adding the tiny details that will bring your dream wedding dress to life.

5


The finishing touch

We want you to get as much as possible from our Bespoke Bridal Service. The finishing touch is you wearing your perfect wedding dress. Once you are completely happy with the finished bridal garment, you can walk away with it that very day!


How long does it take

We ask to allow three months for a made-to-measure wedding dress, and we may need up to six months for more complex and detailed bridal garments.
