“I love working with a bride who chooses a Bespoke Couture Wedding Dress simply because she is unique.
I offer a comprehensive creative experience, from sketching ideas to designing your bespoke couture dress. This is, most importantly, a true collaboration of vision, shared dreams and achievements.”
BESPOKE WEDDING DRESS PRICE GUIDE
The Bespoke wedding dress price can appear fluid due to the nature and variable needs of the client. The price includes not only the cost of designing and making the dress, but also the cost of design development, fittings and alterations and providing mocks up prior to making the final dress. A mock-up dress is known as a toile and can sometimes be made two or three times before I begin to make the final dress. It is a detailed process which takes many hours to perfect and includes the cost of fittings – each of which can take from 20 – 40 mins each time.
CHOOSE THE LEVEL THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU
Before commissioning a bespoke wedding dress, I provide two different levels of consultation so that clients can get an idea and ‘feel’ for the service before we progress to the next level.
The first consultation is free. It generally lasts around 30 – 40mins. During this meeting, you’ll have the chance to view the collection and tell me about your ideas. You may also try on any of the dresses in the Bridal Collection to provide inspiration and ideas for your own dress. If there is time, we will look at a range of fabrics and provide you with a follow up quote. This really is only a brief session to provide a taste of what is on offer.
Once you have accepted the quotation, we will arrange a second appointment to take explore fabrics, trims, surface designs in more details. At this appointment, I will take detailed body measurements and, provide you with a sketch of the agreed design and any fabrics swatches (if we have any available in stock).
Made-to-measure prices – start from £1650.00 inclusive of materials and applies to the gowns in the bridal collection which can be made in your exact size with any changes that you require. The cost of making changes to the design is added to the dress cost and prices start from 10% of the cost.
Bespoke Wedding Dress Prices starts at £2450 excluding materials. We do charge less for simpler designs requiring less work. But please note that the price will fluctuate upwards depending on the final fabric choice. Average wedding dress cost tend to be £2650 – 3000
SOURCING, STYLING & MOOD BOARD
Designed for busy brides who need a little extra help with styling and sourcing. I can help with producing color palettes, sourcing accessories and generally putting your whole look together so that all the items that you need are in one place. The price of this service is dependent on how much help you need and how much time is involved. Average cost for this service is from £225 – £650 plus the cost of any items purchased on your behalf
BOOKING A DESIGN YOUR OWN DRESS APPOINTMENT
We offer a design your own wedding dress service costing £75.00
This service is specifically for brides who know exactly what they are looking for. This is not a service designed to copy the work of other designers as this is unethical practice and is not something that I do. However, I am committed to helping you create a unique dress and will only use any content that you supply to ‘inspire’ the making of your dress.
When you are sure that you wish to go ahead, please book this appointment slot on the calendar. The appointment last around 90 mins to allow time for you to feel comfortable and confident with the process.
Before we meet, you will receive a confirmation email along with an invoice for the service. This fee is refundable against the cost of ordering a bespoke wedding dress.
KEY POINTS THAT WILL AFFECT THE PRICE OF YOUR DRESS
For brides who need extra help with styling and sourcing, I’d love to help you with producing color palettes, sourcing accessories and generally putting your whole look together. The price of this service is depending on how much help you need and how much time is involved. Average cost for this service is £225 – 550 plus the cost of any items purchased on your behalf
The cost of the materials that are chosen is personal and individual to every bride and it is this cost that can add considerably to the making price.
Whilst I do allow for some minor changes during the making of your dress as I want you to be happy, significant changes to the overall design once we have started work will increase the final costs of both the materials and the labour. However, please do not be overly concerned about this as you will be kept informed at every stage of the process

Cynthia is a genius and incredibly good fun to work with, which was a huge bonus for me. I’m not easy to please and had some very specific ideas which I couldn’t necessarily communicate that well. Cynthia was patient, knew the questions to ask, invested a huge amount of time and created the bridal gown of my dreams. I would recommend her to every bride! What a gem to find…. She has worked with all the top design houses and it shows. One hugely talented lady.
