With a close eye for detail and a total perfectionist, Helen makes each bespoke bridal dress to fit each bride perfectly with beautiful end results.
If you would like to have your own unique dress designed and handmade from scratch by Helen, then you will embark on a truly wonderful journey. Your wedding dress will be the only one in existence and you play a big part in the design and fabrics, making it a unique and memorable experience.
The process begins with a free consultation to discuss ideas of colours, fabrics and possible designs. It is a good idea to collect images from magazines of dresses and details that you like. The next step is sourcing beautiful quality fabrics and trims to complement the chosen design. Once fabrics and trims are chosen, a 50% deposit will be payable.
A cotton sample of the chosen dress is then made up with chosen trims and details pinned or drawn on. Alterations are then made until a final fit is agreed. This may take a few fittings but Helen strives for perfection so every detail is discussed until agreed upon. You will need to bring along your bridal underwear and shoes to fittings to ensure an accurate fit.
The final dress is then made up and the remainder of the payment is due upon collection. This process usually takes approximately 6-12 months depending on the time of the year, although dresses can be made in a shorter timescale if required.
Prices start from £1500 for tea length and £2000 for full length. This price includes all fabrics, fittings and alterations. The price can vary depending on the chosen design and fabrics.
