How it Works

See some examples: Anna, Claudia, Ellie, Karolina, Charlotte, Lucy, Diana, Faye, Allison, Carolyn & Martine.

When you book an appointment Carolyn will discuss any ideas you already have if any, and suggest trying on samples to see what inspires you. This will enable her to find the most flattering cut and fit for you, also to see how you feel in the various design and fabric options.

The date and the type of wedding you've chosen, your look and figure all contribute to narrowing down the choice, so don't be nervous, its quite easy and relaxed, there's no hard sell here. She then draws up the design, with various options (the drawings on the right show 3 different neckline and bodice styles), and once you've decided, she then takes your measurements and starts making it. Maternity dresses are best made close to the wedding date as you are probably growing a bit!

On the first fitting, you will be trying on your exact dress, in the chosen fabric, nearly finished, so you can see how fabulous it is! Two to four more fittings and the dress is finished. Any changes can be made along the way (it's rarely necessary), and if you lose weight, it's taken in to get the perfect fit. Allow up to 2 hours on the first appointment. The average price of a bespoke wedding dress is around £1000, evening designs £300-700.
