If you're having a winter wedding or want something light for the evening, I can make bespoke jackets and cover ups to keep the chill off. Whether that's a faux fur jacket, or a silk kimono I can create something stunning to coordinate with your wedding dress.
Whether you've bought a dress from a bridal shop, the high street, a vintage shop or pre-loved I can alter it to fit you perfectly. I can also make any repairs, such as torn hems. You can find out more about out alterations and services and prices by clicking here.
Sustainability is something close to my heart and I love a up-cycling project. If you've bought a Vintage dress or perhaps have a bridal gown handed down by your nan, but its not quite right for you I can work with you create something special whilst keeping the heart of the piece intact. I can also revamp modern dresses to create something perfect for you, from adding a colourful lining, to adding embroidery to create something unique

Prices vary depending on the garment so please do contact me to discuss your requirements. The average price of a bespoke wedding dress is £1,800. Prices for separates (skirts, tops) will be lower. I do however try hard to help clients with budgets of all sizes because I understand not everyone can afford it. Please do drop me a line anyway as I may have an idea of getting a garment within your price range or have samples that may be perfect for you.
