We understand that picking a wedding dress is a once in a lifetime experience. We have heaps of experience to put you at ease and make picking the best dress for you a fun and enjoyable experience.

We follow a tried and tested process to ensure everything runs smoothly for you:

Initial appointment – We invite you to come to our shop. We start by taking your measurements and begin to discuss your requirements to get an idea of the sort of dress that you would like. Some people have strong ideas about what they want, whilst others are looking for a bit more guidance.

Don’t worry whatever help you need we are happy to help. We will look at a selection of designs and finished dresses for you to get a feel for exactly what it is you want.

We get to work – We start to work on the designs for your dress and over a six months time-frame go from concept to finished dress.

First fitting – 2 weeks before the wedding or occasion, you will return to our shop for the first fitting, we can mark out any final alterations that may be needed to make the dress absolutely perfect for you.

Final fitting – one week before the wedding you come back again and we do the final fit, as the butterflies are mounting for your big day, one thing you can be sure of is that your dress will be perfect!

We cater for all sizes from 8 – 30
