This post is truly a reminder that ‘All things are possible’ if you just beleive.  It is one of my favourite bibical quotes (of which I am a firm beleiver) and on which I firmly hang my hat and goals for life as a bespoke wedding dress designer.  For our real bride  Nellie, that is exactly what we aimed for and acheived at HQ – Bespoke Bridal London when we set out to create possibly the most amazing dress that we have ever created  – and who better to have worked with on such a gorgeous creation than this amazing individual.


 In The Brides Own Words

Wow, where do I start?

If you are considering wearing a bespoke wedding gown on your big day,there is no-one better to make your dream a reality than Cynthia.

Firstly, if you are a total lunatic like me, her calming desposition and years in the industry make her the perfect presence to spend a lot of time with in those stress-filled months ahead of your wedding.

But mostly, her experience, attention to detail, her incredible skill, her patience, her perfectionism and her ability to create total magic (even when you change/add a new feature the day before you’resupposed to get married) are unmatched.

I told her constantly throughout the process that she was a genius and the end result was nothing short of incredible; beyond what I could have ever imagined.

I never wanted to take it off

Cynthia i’m so glad I found you xxx


 Bespoke Inspiration

Chateau Les Carrasses – the couple could not have chosen a more suitable venue for their wedding – one that suited their lifestyle and dreams of what the day should look like.  Nellies gown design as a result had to be fun, quirky, bohemian and chic – all at the same time.  She also loved the idea of sheer but drew the line at the expose versions that are supposedly leading bridal fashion trends.

In the studio, we developed multiple vesions of samples created using sheer soft tulle with a nice drape.  The material needed to be drapy rather than poufy. And so, we went back and forth for several months testing lots of ideas to find the best outcome.
