With my creative roots in theatre it was a natural progression to start to offer bespoke bridal and occasion wear. I have worked on a huge variety of custom pieces for brides, mother of the brides and grooms, traditional page boys and flower girls and of course some fabulous eveningwear along the way!
My early work leaned heavily towards the theatrical, but I’m glad to say that throughout my time working with my amazing clients I really have experienced designing for a wide range of tastes, styles and budgets.
I work in a relaxed informal way from my home in Yorkshire. If you are interested in having something made then do please get in touch. I have a few FAQ’s at the bottom of this page that may be helpful.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The process starts with a trip to see me at my home on the Yorkshire Wolds. You are invited to come and talk me through your ideas and plans, usually over a cup of coffee, and I get to know you a little, and we start to put together ideas for gowns.
From there I start to assemble some sketches of our ideas, and samples of fabrics. Once you have chosen a design we can get started!
How long does it take?
Usually I ask for a minimum of 3 months to design and create a wedding gown. Most often brides come to me 8 to 12 months before the wedding.
How much does it cost?
Each dress is costed specifically to your design and fabric choices. Gowns usually start at around £1100 and can go up to £1500 depending on your requirements.
Lower budgets can be met, so always feel free to talk openly with me about cost.
Can I change my mind?
When you agree for a design to be made, a cost is agreed and contract signed. The beauty of this process is that designs can develop, and indeed often do! You can change elements of the design as the process takes place, but the more changes you make the more this could effect the cost of the gown.
How many fittings do I have?
Usually a wedding gown requires 4-6 fittings. These usually take place at my studio, however I have travelled for fittings too.
