HANDMADE COUTURE WEDDING DRESSES
handmade in tunbridge wells
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.
attention to detail
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.
Bespoke wedding dresses from £2200 to £4000.
“I can’t recommend Judy highly enough. She has high attention to detail, is very patient, and listens carefully to what you want.”
