The most personal dress
Ahh what can I say about Lisa..? To be honest it’s going to be hard keeping it simple. I met with Lisa 7 months before my wedding and came to her with a very simple yet elegant design, I really wanted a simple dress with a cheeky lace pannel at the bottom of the back, I kept asking her to hold of making my dress as I desperately wanted to loose a few pounds for my big day...(I mean most brides do...Don’t they?) Anyway once Lisa did start to make my dress and after the a few fittings I became to realise that my original design needed something else... and this is where Lisa and her creativity came in... she suggested a corset design to help me give the curves I desired, she came up with a very clever idea having a ruched area around my tummy to one side to take the eye away from the area I didn’t like. (Just wait till you see the photos) We both felt the dress needed something to make it more special, this is where the sparkle came in, Lisa hand stitched some beautiful lace onto the top of my dress and the back of the corset then prosseded to stitch pearls and Swarovski crystals to make the dress pop! My very very personal touch is my something blue, I asked Lisa from the beginning to add a blue butterfly in rememberence for my baby boy, Lisa searched the internet and found the most perfect butterfly, it actually looked so delicate and when Lisa stitched it onto my dress it looked like it had landed on my dress, almost 3D. Lisa offered to come to my hotel room the morning of my wedding so she could lace up my dress to make sure I looked perfect, I felt so beautiful walking down the isle and it’s thanks to her amazing skills. Thanks again Lisa...xx

Amazing!
I went to Lisa to design a bridesmaid and flower girls dress. She was very friendly and listend to what I wanted and offered me advice when needed. She made me the most beautiful dresses and ended up making me the most perfect veil. Not only is Lisa such a lovely person she is also very talented.

My amazing veil
Lisa was just incredible from start to finish! I lost my dad last year and wanted a way to honor him on my wedding day and to have him walk down the aisle with me. I went to Lisa with an idea and what she created was just utterly incredible and beyond anything I had thought of. I cannot that her enough for what she has made for me and for being so kind and helpful throughout.

What can I say? Lisa is fantastic she listened to what I liked and helped create my bespoke veil and helped recommended materials, as well as cost. No pressure no sales talk just pure love creation from a truly lovely lady. I can’t recommend lisa and her business enough. Please contact lisa for all your bridal needs. She is a star and a fellow liver bird. Xx

Creative, caring and completely couture
Lisa is unbelievable talented and created a gorgeous gown from my mothership dated 70’s wedding gown. Lisa was thoughtful in her creative ideas and passionate about her work which reflected in the stunning finished product. Lisa helped make my day so much more memorable and I have a wonderful story behind my dress- worth more than any gown off the shelf.
