The process of having your beautiful gown made by Bernadette is very simple and stress free.

Firstly a consultation to catch up and discuss all the exciting ideas with the bride is organized – this usually takes about an hour. A quote is then drawn up and the bride can go away and decide whether she would like to go ahead with the gown.

Next a date is organized to make the garment.
This will be a full working day (that is, a week day) where the bride comes to the studio several times throughout the day for fittings and consultation and the gown is made to an advanced stage.

In this way, the bride gets to see her unique wedding dress take shape and can enjoy being part of the design process. The final stages of the gown are done closer to the big day, which ensures a perfect fit. This is also when veil and jewellery decisions are finalised. 

Bernadette also offers an alteration service for brides who have purchased their gowns elsewhere. Although Bernadette's first love is creating her own unique styles and gowns to suit each bride, she also recognises that alterations to gowns need to be done by someone skilled in the trade, and enjoys helping brides out in this way.
