Quotations are based on individual designs, fabric choices and the number of hours of work involved. I can work out a rough quote from your ideas however I will need to meet in person during a free, no obligation initial design consultation to send a final accurate quote. This will be based on your fabric choices from hundreds of couture fabrics and laces and your design ideas discussed in person at my Wimborne, Dorset studio.

A bespoke wedding dress starts with your ideas. The best thing is to send me any pictures or descriptions of what you have in mind. Designs tend to be influenced by 2, 3 or even 5 features from various favourite dresses blended to create the perfect dress.

During an initial design consultation I will go through illustrations drawn up from your ideas and a large range of fabric samples. Measurements are taken at this stage because if you decide to book in with me it means I can get straight to work on your dress without a second meeting just for measurements. The design consultation allows me to work out an accurate quote, if you decide to go ahead with a bespoke wedding dress the next stage is a 25% deposit.

I will make the wedding dress using a pattern drafted from scratch to your exact measurements for a fit that is perfectly yours. This is followed by a mock up dress fitting which will be your wedding dress design in a calico (a strong plain cotton that I can draw on and cut and pin, to tweak the style and fit). The mock up allows us to check that your design suits you, and play around with the design in fabric in front of the mirror.

This mock up stage is perfect, to make any design changes to things like the neckline, sleeves or train length. A series of around 2-4 fittings in the final fabrics will ensure an exact fit, design tweaks and a full corsetry layer can be sewn in, including a bra depending on dress design.

Complete payment needs to be made before the final collection I will get you try the dress on one last time before taking it home to double check the fit and decoration. Collection is always around 4 weeks before the wedding, this ensures an accurate fit. Then the exciting part! You get to wear the wedding dress you have always dreamt of on your big day!

Terms And Conditions

Ideally orders should be placed at a minimum of 6 months to avoid disappointment, as dates get booked up, however I am more than happy to look into more last minute bookings.

Once the order has been placed a 25% deposit will be required. You will have 14 days to cancel, after this the deposit is non-refundable. The reason for this is that once fabrics have been ordered they cannot be returned; changing the fabric after this point will be an additional cost.

If you require major alterations that were not mentioned when the order was placed, for example weight loss/gain or pregnancy; there will be an extra charge for these alterations.

Any Major changes to the design or structure of the garment after the mock up fittings will result in extra costs, as they would not have been included in the original quote.

Final payment is due by the final collection fitting and the garment cannot be taken away until fully paid for. Garments are individual to the customer’s measurements and design and therefore are non refundable.
