Are you a mature bride looking for a wedding dress or wondering what to wear on your wedding day? You want to feel like the bride but don’t like the idea of visiting a traditional bridal shop? Or maybe you’ve been married before and done the whole ‘big dress’ thing and feel like you’d like to wear something a little more you? I can help!

I’m not really into labels, but I get lots of enquiries from brides-to-be telling me they are a ‘mature’ bride and feeling concerned about what they should wear. Don’t worry, I am here to help you.

I make wedding dresses and outfits for brides of all ages, not just those under 40 years of age! My eldest bride was in her 80s when I made her wedding dress and I am currently working with a bride-to-be in her 70s. I’m certainly not someone who thinks you should or shouldn’t wear certain garments and styles over a certain age – I’m not into that sort of thing. So whatever your taste and style, I will support and advise you in your choices and together we’ll design something to help you look and feel fantastic on your big day!

In my experience, and I’m generalising here – as we get older, we often tend to become more accepting of our bodies and shapes, and the parts we feel happy with and those we’d prefer to conceal. We’re probably less likely to be visiting the gym every day and employing a personal dietician in preparation for our big day. So whatever your shape, size and tastes, do consider a bespoke wedding dress – or dress for your wedding; however you choose to describe it.

Maybe you want to really go for it this time in a brightly coloured, theatrical number? Or alternatively, tone it right down and feel comfortable in a simple dress in a muted shade that you love? Or maybe you have no idea at all!

Email is best for initial enquiries so head over to my contact page if you’d like to email me to find out more, or to book an appointment to come and see me.
