Your Gown, Your Way
Your story is just the beginning…
When it comes to creating your wedding dress, I like to ensure I design something that is timeless, bespoke, and ultimately you. Your bridal gown is more than just a dress. It is designed with intention, crafted by hand with love and dedication, and created especially for you so that you will look as elegant, as cool, or as sophisticated as can be. And the process begins with your story…
Made exclusively for you
Your dress will be unique. It will be a one off design which will fit you perfectly, no matter what your shape or style. From fabric, to buttons, lace to embroidery, your gown will be crafted to suit you and never repeated again.
Your gown will be hand made in my studio using the finest fabrics using couture techniques. This will be no ordinary wedding dress, but a gown that you can pass down the generations and look back on knowing that we weaved your story into the design.
The Starting point
Your wedding dress journey begins with a meeting. We will build a close working partnership turning ideas into reality, as the process unfolds from initial sketches and fabric selection to the final stitches.
I ask my clients to put together a few pictures to show me their initial ideas. We will brainstorm using Pinterest, drawings and fabric swatches.
Not only is your design based on your style, I also take into account the vibe of your wedding, your venue, and the season. I draw inspiration from you and your life and weave these elements together to dream up a gown designed like no other and created especially for you.
Once I’ve drawn up a clear design proposal, we can get to the exciting bit. The next stage is creating a toile garment – a cloth mock-up pattern, cut to your exact measurements, to ensure we get the right fit. This is the stage when we can visualise and refine the chosen design on your body. We can perfect the fit and consider final fabrics and details.
Only then does the making of the dress begin…
A Perfect Fit
Once we’ve chosen your fabrics and embellishments, I then get to work creating a gown that is a perfect fit. Precious fabrics are carefully cut and constructed using couture techniques and immaculately hand finished. As each stage progresses, you will visit the studio for fittings until your dress is finally finished and lovingly packed ready to go in time for your big day.
