Firstly, I confess to absolutely loving what I do! I design and make my dresses using only silks and the softest of French Laces. I take pride in the quality of how a dress feels as well as looks. I have a wealth of experience that has grown over the years from meeting and designing for many, many brides. I like to see my work as a craft, developing my creativity and progressing my skills. This is the fabulous thing about what I do, there is always so much more to inspire me. I have specialised in fifties wedding dresses over the last few years. I do love a fifties wedding dress and continue to offer new variations, however,I now also offer a wider range of looks to choose from.
I started my bridal business from a few commissions whilst I worked with stylists and costume designers. I now only work with brides on their dresses. I do not offer bridesmaids or other dresses I am afraid.
I work from a small studio in Muswell Hill North London. Many of my brides are fairly local or are in London. Previous and current commissions have come from as far flung places as Kuwait, Australia and in Europe. Travelling from Ireland, Scotland well anywhere, can be accommodated into your timeline to allow for fittings.
I love it when, finally, after the wedding the pictures arrive ( I often hear of other arrivals a year later too!) It is, after all, an industry based on an incredibly special and deliriously happy event.
