- Simply Alterations : bridal run a by appointment only service for all your bridal alterations and design needs. Award winning with a great reputation across our local four counties, offering a friendly fitting for every bride. Completely independent, yet we are recommended by many bridal boutiques. Please don’t feel that you need to use the boutique based seamstress. As the bride you must feel comfortable with your seamstress, after all your dress just has to be perfect. Our diary does get booked up quickly, often before brides even buy their dresses and up to two years in advance. So it is never too early to secure your fitting.

What about your business are you most proud of?
Since Simply Alterations opened in 2009 we have achieved a huge amount. We were the winners of the Dressmaker & Designer category in the 2016 4CWA (will find out his week if we win again for 2017!) and have taken part in a stunning photo shoot, with a Cuban theme off the back of that win. Such a great day. We are also proud of how well the business fits with my family life and how diaries are getting busier and busier.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Secure your seamstress as soon as you can, it is so important to ensure you look absolutely perfect on your big day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Transport from venue to reception was on an old double decker bus, with G&T or beer or the guests to enjoy on the trip!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Email contact initially to secure a fitting date, which are usually booked up to two years in advance. We meet at my private studio for your fitting, where you are welcome to bring along any family members or friends. Fittings take approximately one hour, after which your gown is left with me for a week. We arrange a final collection and fit appointment for after that time, when you will collect your fully steam finished gown.
