Wedding Dresses|BespokeFelicity Westmacott

Wedding dresses are my art and my passion. With cascades of silk, taffeta or lace, delicate simplicity or ornate beading let me realise your vision of the perfect dress.

The creation of each unique wedding dress involves a design consultation, perfecting the fit and a couture finish. Prices usually start at £1600 + fabrics but are as varied as the needs of my clients.

Boleros, veils and accessories can be created to compliment your bespoke wedding dress.

Commissions for bridesmaids, children, mother of the bride/groom, occasion-wear and ball gowns are also welcome.

Alterations for style or fit to vintage or shop bought dresses are occasionally accepted.

I start just one dress per month, and each dress takes 6-12 weeks to complete.

 

At present I have bespoke commission start dates available from February onwards, suitable for weddings in spring 2020 and beyond.

 

I take on a limited number of bridal alterations with slots still available for most dates in 2020.

How I approach making your bespoke wedding dress

My customers generally fall into two main categories: those who have searched the bridal shops and simply can’t find the perfect dress (but know the style they’re looking for), and those whose ideas are more vague and will need more of my design help and suggestions. Trying on a few dresses in the shops is essential, as your first ideas for a bespoke wedding dress may change when you see the style on your own figure.

The key advice I always give is that every bride must dress to please herself, because no one else could pick the dress meant for her.  True to my background in theatre I approach each wedding dress as a costume. It must say something special about this woman on this day, just as a costume tells you about the character and story of someone in a film. A wedding dress tells the story of what a bride wants her future to be. That’s why the dress is important, special, and unique. When someone wears the dress that makes them happy, it will show.

A Little About Me

Felicity Westmacott, profile picture.

I have been making bespoke wedding dresses for more than 15 years. My training in Costume for theatre and film and four years as a bridal alterations seamstress led me to my specialism. With an understanding of the different ways of cutting and shaping dresses through the centuries, I can draw on hundreds of years of technical and design knowledge in creating unique and contemporary gowns as well as historical and vintage styles. One of my greatest pleasures is seeing my clients over the moon with happiness as their dress ideas come to life.

Helping Brides in Surrey, London and beyond!

Brides often remark what a delightful surprise it is to find me close to home in East Surrey, for brides coming from Redhill, Reigate, Caterham, Horley, Dorking or Guildford. But my clients travel too, as access is easy from London. Redhill being only 40 minutes direct from Victoria or London Bridge. And clients come from further afield; Kent, Sussex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and all over the South East. Over seas clients are not unknown as Gatwick airport is only 10 minutes away by train, or 20 minutes in a taxi, and Heathrow an easy 40minutes around the M25.

Helen GordonThe day was lovely and the dress was a bit hit, thank you so much! I had so many people asking me where I had got it from and saying it was stunning! It really was! My mum and I got it on without any issues on the day and I didn't want to take it off again!
GerryYour quality of work is amazing and incredible value for money. Thank you for all that extra work. I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I hear is getting married! So will my friends!
Emily Hunter...everyone who came to the wedding commented on the dress. I spent a lot of the day telling people about you! People made such lovely comments about how beautiful it was and I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful I felt in it.
A very happy newly-wed…
