Full Description
A free design consultation appointment begins the process where we will discuss what you require covering elements such as style, materials, the budget and time-scale. A design sketch and cost quotation will then be posted or emailed to you for your consideration. An individual pattern will be drafted to your measurements and series of private fittings will ensure a perfect fit and finish. The process of a bespoke bridal dress will usually include the making of a toile, which is a mock-up of the design in cheaper materials, allowing the maker to perfect the cut and the wearer to check the style. All consultations and fittings take place in my own home so you will be completely private and you will have my full attention during your appointment. Felicity has more than 14 years experience helping hundreds of brides feel wonderful on their special day.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Many spring to mind, the vintage wedding dress remodelled so a bride wore her mother's dress, but with a modern twist; the bride who loved the Royal wedding and had her dress hand appliquéd with the same lace, almost invisible in photographs but costing twice as much as the dress itself; the biggest dress I've ever made trimmed with 30m of blue lace and

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, Individual, Spectacular, Perfectionist, Fairy tail

What about your business are you most proud of?

Creating brides' dreams, being a part of each person's special day and knowing you helped make it perfect

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't worry too much about pleasing others in your dress choice, in fact very few people remember the wedding dress unless they planning a wedding themselves or your mother, so don't compromise on what you want. Choose your dream dress and feel fabulous, disregarding what you assume other's will think of any particular detail.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Seeds or little plants given as favours, something that will grow and live not just be thrown away

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I usually only meet the bride! It all starts with a free consultation appointment where we look at design ideas, fabrics and detail. Then she'll receive a written quote with sketches and fabric samples on which to base a decision. I measure the bride and make a 'toile' or practice run to check fit and style before cutting the real fabrics. A series of fittings ensure perfection. Then steaming and a dress bag are included in the making price.

What do you love most about your job?

Meeting happy people... and making them even happier!

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

Historical... perhaps 18th century... or something very modern and chic

What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?

I always sew in a tiny blue bow and rose, right next to the wrist loop on the train of a wedding dress, so when you lift the train to keep it out of the dust the something blue is revealed.

What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?

Apart from my own, there are two others I have made that I have thought, yes, if I hadn't worn my own I'd have felt wonderful in that one... you can see them here http://felicitywestmacott.co.uk/portfolio/tyler1.html http://felicitywestmacott.co.uk/portfolio/simpson1.html
