Handmade Couture Wedding Dresses in Tunbridge Wells, Kent

During your initial appointment, you will try on a selection of beautiful silk gowns to find the shape that makes the very most of your figure. Many feature hidden corsetry that can make you look a size smaller. Judy has always designed with classic understatement using the best quality fabrics available, beautiful silks from all over the world and exquisite French lace.

As each dress is made for the individual bride, different elements can be selected to create a gown that is unique to you. Judy will produce sketches so you can imagine how the dress might look and also suggest which silks will best suit the design.

The attention to detail from the moment a dress is commissioned results in a perfect gown every time. Once you have selected the design the fun really starts. Judy will take your measurements and your individual pattern will be made. The toile is then fitted. This is a mock up of your dress in cotton. Usually a second toile will be required to ensure the fit is perfect. Only when the bride is happy will Joanna start to make your dress.

Two more fittings will follow in silk with the final fitting proving there is no substitute for a dress that is made-to-measure. You will look forward to your day with confidence, knowing you will look your very best.

A bespoke gown can take up to six months to complete and requires at least four fittings, although Judy has never been known to turn away a bride without a frock.

I spent many painful hours in numerous bridal shops trying on a terrifying number of dresses, with shop assistants attempting to pressure me into buying the completely wrong thing (at an extortionate price!). When I went to see Judy and explained to her what I had in mind, she immediately understood and completely captured my vision in her initial designs. Judy helped create my dream dress and I absolutely loved the whole process. Thank you Judy for your honesty, time, dedication and of course incredible talent!
If only I could do it again! x

Such happy memories of having my dress made by Judy - the whole process was so enjoyable, from the moment I walked in to my first appointment, Judy made me feel so comfortable and knew exactly what would suit me and we had such fun with fabrics and lace. Judy is the best of the best and I can't recommend her more highly.

I just love the dress that Judy made for me. Having started looking for dress 4 months before the wedding, and being told by bridal boutiques that they could not get many of their dresses ordered in by my wedding date, I visited Judy and was surprised to find it would be no problem for her to design and make a bespoke dress within 4 months. Judy brought all my ideas together to create a stunning, beautifully fitted dress which I love more and more each time I see it. I am even going to wear it again for another wedding celebration we are having later this month. Any excuse to wear it again! I would most definitely recommend Judy to anyone, over and above any bridal boutique.

When I first met Judy I had a clear idea of what I wanted for the bodice of my dress, but I wasn't sure at all how I wanted the rest of it to look. I needn't have worried as Judy was excellent in helping me to decide on the final design. I loved the whole experience from start to finish and I can't recommend Judy highly enough. She has a high attention to detail, is very patient and listens carefully to what you want. The great thing about having your dress made is how it evolves throughout the process and it was great to be able to make little tweaks to the original design to ensure it was exactly right - Judy was very accommodating in this respect. The result was the most perfect dress which I adored wearing, danced all night in and which I was so sad to have to take off at the end of the night! Thanks so much Judy.

Having my wedding dress designed and made to measure, just for me was the best decision ever. Judy is so talented I loved her designs from the start - there was no other choice for me! The whole experience of working with Judy was a pleasure - and every little detail of the dress was personally designed. My dress was beautiful and I felt like I was in a dream wearing it on the big day. It was just perfect! I'd recommend Judy wholeheartedly to any brides to be!

I've just picked up my finished dress and veil from Judy and I'm over the moon! After visiting LOTS of bridal shops and finding everything I tried on was pretty generic, I knew the only way this fussy bride would be happy was to get something made. Judy was great from the start; extremely professional and clearly very experienced. Plus, so patient with me and my ever changing brief! She understood exactly what I wanted at every stage and fulfilled my expectations and more. I'm so excited to wear my one of a kind dress in three weeks time! I can't thank you enough Judy.

I have absolutely adored going to see Judy and watching my dress slowly turn from a few scribbles in my notebook and an idea in my head to the most beautiful and perfect gown I could have wished for! Judy is so lovely and made us feel right at home but at the same time is a true professional with an incredible talent…a real artist!! We will certainly miss our little trips to her gorgeous boutique! Thank you so much, Carla and Karen x

WOW, where do I start! From the moment my mother and I walked into Judy's shop on a rainy November afternoon after spending the day being repeatedly told that there was no wedding dress for my size or shape, Judy made me feel at ease and knew exactly what I was looking for. I don't have a confident self-image and going to see Judy every month and watching my dress turn from an idea on paper to the mock dress and then the final piece was an incredible experience. My dress was more than I could have ever dreamed of, stunning is an understatement. Judy made me feel confident in myself and I always felt at home in her boutique. Judy has an incredible talent and I could not recommend her highly enough. I will miss my monthly trips to Judy's haven! Thank you so much, Jemima

After seeing the truly beautiful dress Judy created for my mum on her wedding day, I knew I could entrust her with making my dream dress too! The end result was a truly dreamy gown that was made to fit perfectly and resulted in lots of compliments. I loved the beauty of the lace and the way in which I could control what I wanted done to my dress; we worked together to mould it into exactly what I wanted. Thank you for being such a vital part of my big day Judy

You know you are in very safe hands with Judy. She's so brilliant at what she does and exudes confidence and years of experience that puts you at ease the moment you step into her shop. Everything I've asked her to make for me has been done beautifully, so professionally, to time, to budget and to fit like a glove. Thank you Judy.
