Rock and Roll Baby!!! – An original, alternative and tattooed wedding dress

Steph061Rock and Roll Baby!!

I love this shoot so much, it brings back so many memories of Sally (our embroidery genius and myself) excitedly  designing researching, being excited about launching the first and original tattooed wedding dress. It seems like a million years ago but at the same time only yesterday…. I thought when I came up with the design idea, ” I really don’t care if anybody likes it or “gets” it, I just wanna do it for me ” for me as a designer who wants to create truly bespoke and customised custom made and alternative wedding dresses, luckily for us the dress hit the mark for lots of ladies wanting a bespoke and tattooed wedding dress, so many awesome ideas and embroideries have happened for many awesome brides and below are just a small selection This shoot stars by beautiful gorgeous pal and muse Miss Stephanie May and was photographed by our good pal Steve Gerrard Photography. This will  always have a special place in our 24 year history for this dress we called Inkspiration and the lovely people we meet along the way xxxx

“ I hope you are doing well – thank you so much for the dress it is so beautiful and it really made my day on the 12th :) I had so many lovely compliments and the dress was just so ‘me’ I couldn’t have asked for anything better :D

Thank you so much for creating my beautiful wedding dress and being so accommodating about the dress working with my unicycle- I am not sure where else I could have gone would have done that!!

My dress helped me feel like “ME” on the day, which was so important and I will treasure it forever!! Love and huggles * Leigh XXX”

Crazy Cath’s Elopement to Oz – Alternative wedding dresses

The lovely and crazy Cath came to us wanting something that was “here” not to girly, not to long, not to hot as she was getting married on Christmas day on the beach in Sydney, Australia….so we got to work and made this rainbow inspired starstruck dress !!! such good fun!!! Congratulations lovely lady! xxDSC00560 (Copy) DSC00562 (Copy)

We Had a lovely testimonial and review left by Cath””A unique place that loves life, love and your experience there – just the best place you could go to make your dream dress a reality!! I’ve never reviewed before or felt any need, but these guys are so beyond awesome, more people should get the chance to have their wishes come true and The Couture Co. deserve all the props, praise & business for making it so xx Much love”

Cath wrote to tells us about her day “thanks so much again for all your hard work. The dress was everything I hoped it would be…  It was pretty hot in the morning after some epic raining which caused no end of stress, so I wore the petticoat part of part of my dress at the beach with a light white frock, then for our first [!] xmas lunch, I had on the corset with leggings, then later when we went to like a Xmas all inclusive buffet, which was awesome and cooler, I had my full ensemble on! It was just as perfect and changeable as I’d dreamed, so I had the paper dolly dressing up combo effect that I wanted to help me feel confident throughout the whole day and thank you again so much.

So as it was just us and everything was closed, we had hours to prat about taking pics, so I’ve sent some that are styling, that showcase your awesome work [as best we could with a click stick] and just us plebbing about which was pretty much our theme – I giggled all the way through the 10 minute ceremony and as I’ve said, ended up having 2 Xmas dinners and getting totally plastered, just how we wanted it!”

Hello Kitty-Crazy cat Caroline bought us to tears -Alternative wedding dresses

If you were to ask our Caroline, “Is there such a thing as too much Hello Kitty?” then she would laugh and say “there is never ever too much Hello Kitty!” in her sweet Northern Irish tones….  we loved Caroline and her Ma so much, we were so excited every time she flew in  for her fittings , and had such a laugh …what a lovely family …we miss them now the wedding has happened x

What an absolute joy to work with her on her wedding dress, I cried at her final fitting and on receiving her wonderful photos and heartfelt testimonial!! This is why we do our job!! this is why we love it!!

Caroline writes “I’ve always been fat my whole life, I never dreamed that I would ever get married but here I was engaged date set and starting to look for wedding dresses.

I’ve never had a lot of self confidence and have always felt that I could never be beautiful or feel it, so from the start I had so much negativity built up inside me. After endless hour’s of looking for a dress I was left feeling very disheartened, feeling that no one would cater for my size let alone my style. I decided to look on line and I came across the fabulous Couture Company looking through the site I couldn’t believe the variety of dresses they did and they catered for plus size so I plucked the courage up and contacted Jo

Jo honestly is one of the nicest person you will meet she didn’t judge me on my size or on my mega hello kitty fetish lol I couldn’t have been more delighted to have found her and her team

I’m from Northern Ireland so I flew back and forth for the fittings before I knew it it was the final fitting, as I stepped out and looked in the mirror I was gobsmacked I couldn’t get over how fabulous this dress was, it was perfect and to top it off I had an amazing hello kitty head piece custom made, I literally felt so happy, I felt beautiful which I never thought I would feel, I couldnt wait to get the dress home and show my bridesmaids and wear it on my wedding day

Jo and her team are unbelievable the quality of the dress was outstanding every little detail was perfect the placing of the lace, the hello kitty, the multi coloured buttons this dress was amazing

On the big day I had so many compliments on my dress I felt amazing and not once did I feel fat my dress summed my personality up and flattered my figure,  my husband was blown away I think he had imagined some hello kitty costume to come walking down the aisle lol

I am so very thankful to Jo you don’t know it but you helped me overcome so many fears and worries you completly put me at ease and let me be me Thank u so much for making me feel beautiful and making the dress of my dreams ” Caroline xx

Well it was our pleasure my lovely, you were an inspiration to me and my team….and now our followers who read this

Kath and Sean got hitched Doctor Who style – in a Tardis and dalek alternative wedding dress

els-design Kath & Sean016 (Copy)Katherine came to us all the way from Louisiana!! She was marrying her British beau Sean and she was super excited and nervous all at the same time. What a sweetheart she was and an absolutely pleasure to work with. We loved working on her dress and especially the Doctor Who inspired belt….Katherine wanted a Tardis as Sean LOVES Dr Who, so we then suggested …how about 2 Daleks kissing in front of a Tardis???? she was sold and we got to work!!

Love her!!! xxx els-design Kath & Sean034 (Copy)  els-design Kath & Sean003 (Copy) els-design Kath & Sean004 (Copy)

Kath wrote a lovely testimonial ,we hope you find it inspiring !!

“As a plus-size bride-to-be, I read so many horror stories from women who were insulted and shamed about their weight when looking for a wedding dress in popular chain stores and even some independent boutiques. Amongst all of the negativity, I was able to hunt down The Couture Company. I immediately fell in love with Jo’s designs and range; I had never had a dream dress but I knew I’d find it with Jo. At our first meeting, Jo gave me a big hug and quickly quieted my fears and insecurities. By the end of my appointment, we had picked out the perfect dress and Jo was already conjuring up Whovian extras.

My subsequent meetings with Jo were the absolute best; not only was my dress coming together in the most amazing way but our meetings had become a very welcome (and needed!) therapeutic break in the crazy months leading up to our wedding. I can say with absolute certainty that if it hadn’t been for Jo, I would have spent my wedding day in a poorly-made, ill-fitting, mass-produced dress that would have left me wanting to be invisible. I know this because that awful outlook is what I had mentally conceded to, before finding The Couture Company. Instead, I had an amazing day and did not completely shy away from all of the attention directed toward my husband and me! Everyone loved my dress so much that it made the journey to America with us for our stateside religious ceremony a month after our wedding in Kent.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Jo and everyone who works with her. Not only did Jo create an amazing dress, she also helped me find some previously non-existent self-confidence that continues to help me. Thank you so much!

Kath x”

Tattoo inspired shoot, Up in lights, up on the roof, -Alternative wedding dresses and inspiration

the-couture-company-wedding-gowns-alternative-bepoke-quirky-unusual-dresses-tatt-light-leopard-mexican-jamball-assasynation (188)

One of the best things about our job is getting to work on epic projects like this with other alternative wedding creatives. All of the suppliers involved in this shoot we met at The Electic Wedding Extravaganza last year….. I saw the lights from Tatt light and the inspirations  went off like a light bulb in my head. I immediately spoke to Sassy and we got to work on pulling this fab team together :). Sassy and I had both been a part of our models Fran and Lewis’s weddding back in March, and just knew they would be perfect for this shoot!! We were so delighted when they agreed :)

So we went up to the roof of The Custard factory and created this tattoo inspired scene :)

Olga’s Big FAB Greek wedding with classic cut 1950’s dress, and some lovely words too x

I am so pleased to be able to share Olga’s beautiful Greek wedding, Olga married in her native Athens!! just look at the views!!! I love the beautiful heavier silk damask pattern mixed with the soft honey tones of tuilles….Olga reminds me  a 50’s film star xx so classic and chic xxx Please scroll down for Olga’s adventures with us xG140608_0489G140608_0177 G140608_0179  G140608_0496 G140608_0526 G140608_0539 G140608_0540 G140608_0547 G140608_0550

Thanks Olga for your lovely write up, it was our absolute please to create this gown for you

“Our decision to have a Greek church wedding was kind of spontaneous and gave us less than 4 months to plan the whole event abroad. I always knew I wanted to get married at the highest point in Athens, the Lycabettus Hill. I also had an idea of my dream wedding gown; it had to be a big 1950s style gown with an edge. Most of the wedding gown stores I visited were only getting terrified in the idea they would need to have the dress ready in a fraction of time and I was getting frustrated as I couldn’t find anything that would match my dream wedding gown ready made. Also, the fact my mother is a costume designer always guided me towards having a bespoke and good quality dress. Anything else would be a compromise.

After tears and despair my online research led me to the Couture Company website. I was impressed by the unique designs and materials; these dresses had the edge I was looking for and most importantly they were real bespoke gowns. However, I was almost certain I would get rejected due to the short time I had left before I needed to travel to Greece for the big day. When I first contacted Jo and we booked the first appointment I couldn’t believe how lucky I was. The Couture Company provided me with the experience I was looking for the big day. I took some vintage dresses’ pictures with me and we discussed the design of the ideal dress. I will never forget how excited I felt when they agreed to actually create it for me and I had the opportunity to actually see and feel the fabric before the dress was made.
It only took three or four fittings before I could take the dress home with me. It was amazing. The first fitting was the a very plain material version of the dress and when we agreed on the details I started feeling like a princess, looking even more forward to the day I would actually wear it.

When I eventually travelled to Athens I knew straight away that my choice would be reviewed by my mother. She pointed out how spotless and perfectly made was the dress. My mother in law also commented I couldn’t have made a better choice on a dress. When the big day arrived, everybody commented on the design, the uniqueness of the fabric, how great it fitted me and that it looked much more expensive than its actual cost. The dress the Couture Company created for me is equal to quality and style, more than what I had imagined.

I very recently received the dvd from the wedding day. It brought me up all the memories of the day, but I also enjoyed so much seeing the way the dress moves and how it is captured on camera.

I can’t thank or recommend Jo and her team enough. They created a fantastic dress in a very short time. It is a bit over a year after the wedding day and there are still people commenting on my dress.

Thank you Jo!!! xx

Olga

Becky and Simon got married and invited a zebra!!- Alternative wedding dresses

There are no words for how totally awesome this wedding is, and they had a Zebra there too!!!

We loved every minute of helping Becky with her dress from initial consultation to her actually coming in the shop ON HER WEDDING DAY!!!! to say hi!! (can you spot me and the team???) What a pair of legends Becky and Simon are!!

These EPIC photographs are copyright and with Thanks to Assassynation

I couldn’t be happier with my wedding dress made by Jo and her team! Before visiting the shop I’d tried on quite a few dresses that were lovely but not very ‘me’ and I was feeling a bit stuck. I was nervous about the idea of having a bespoke dress, it felt like a lot of pressure! Fortunately, right from the start Jo just seemed to get what I liked and wanted.

The final dress was beautiful and so well made. It (obviously!) fitted perfectly and I felt amazing in it all day. Despite it being a little less traditional, everyone at the wedding loved it and it got so many compliments:)

My husband and I visited the shop after the wedding ceremony and the team all seemed so excited. They clearly take a lot of pride and care in what they do and this shows in their awesome dresses! I’ve been lucky enough to be asked to take part in the ‘real bride’ parade at the upcoming Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza, and I’m sadly very excited to have a reason to put my dress back on again! :)
I couldn’t recommend The Couture Company highly enough, the whole process was a pleasure :)Thank you so, so much!! xxxThe-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (9) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (10) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (11) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (12) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (13) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (14) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (15) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (16) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (17) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (18) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (19) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (20) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (21) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (22) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (23) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (24) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (25) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (26) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (27) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (28) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (29) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (30) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (31) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (32) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (33) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (34) The-couture-company-bespoke-unique-creative-designer-wedding-dresses-bridal-gowns-Becky-simon-Assassynation-10085 (35)If you want to see Becky in her dress in the flesh, then come along to the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza on the 21st Feb at The Bond in Birmingham

Steampunk all the way for Sarah’s awesome alternative wedding

We were so excited when Sarah came to see us, and we really got to be all creative with Sarah’s Steampunk theme, she wanted a corset to show off her curves, a short skirt at the front to show off her gun holster, a jacket to keep her warm, and colours that showed off her flame red hair!! What do you think? we LOVE her!!! Dress 7 Dress 2 Dress 3 Dress 4 Dress 5 Dress 6  Dress 8

Sarah wrote this fab testimonial, thanks so much Sarah xxxx


“From the minute I walked in the door of The Couture Company Jo knew exactly what I wanted and was so enthusiastic about designing my perfect steampunk wedding dress. No request or amendment was too much bother and the reveal on my final fitting was amazing, my dress was far more than I could have ever imagined. I couldn’t wait to put it on.
My wedding guests, and more importantly my husband, couldn’t believe their eyes when the saw me walk down the aisle. There were gasps and open mouths a plenty! Everyone commented on how unique and special my dress was and how it was perfect for me and suited my personality. A few even said I was the best bride they had ever seen!
Thank you to Jo and everyone at The Couture Company for making a dress (and a bride) to remember xx

Elle wrote ” Oh my god, where do I start…Jo, you literally made my dreams come true. You are a like the fairy Godmother of weddings!

I’d been to 6 bridal shops in my search for ‘the one’. Trying dresses on, feeling like there was always something missing. I knew the shape I wanted and I knew the overall feeling I wanted but I just wasn’t getting anywhere close. I searched the internet, pinterest, magazines, shops, everywhere. I was literally going insane just panicking that I was never going to find what I wanted and that it just didn’t even exist! Then BOOM…I found a blog that had your dresses on and I just knew you were going to be my answer.

My first appointment came and I showed you images, drew you a little piccie and described as best I could my vision of a dress that feels like waves/sea foam at the bottom. I still can’t find the exact words that describe what I wanted, but Jo it was like you got into my head, took a photo and then plopped it down in front of me!

There is no doubt that committing to having your wedding dress handmade, is a scary thought. But when I met with you Jo and I saw all your other amazing creations close up, all nerves flew out of the window. The next fitting came when I tried on the toile dress…I would have worn that to our wedding! It may have just been a bit of canvas to get the fit right but damn did it fit! It gave me shape I never thought I had…I had hips and a bum!!!

Each time I came for a fitting you added a bit more and my dream was becoming more and more a reality. The day came when I got my finished dress and I can not even begin to explain the joy I saw when I looked into the mirror. I had my whimsical wave dress that reminded me of the sea, I had the feeling of something fitting so perfectly that I actually felt sexy yet still bridal. And I had the quirky burst of colour underneath which blew peoples minds when I pulled up my dress for a good old boogie! My dress was a reflection of me and how I feel inside and the loves that myself and my hubby share. I never expected to be able to say that about a dress! Then the moment came when I walked down the aisle, my husband-to-be’s face I will never forget. He said he saw me, the me that he’s always loved…and then burst into tears! I wanted the dress to be a reflection of myself (obviously with a bit of hair and make-up!) and not me trying to be someone else. Jo you saw that and worked your magic like no ‘off the shelf’ dress could.

People say that you only wear your wedding dress once…but god damn I’m gonna wear this as much as possible! Already planning a 1st anniversary shoot in it, and planning on starting a tradition where all us married girls meet up regularly and just drink wine in our dresses. It’s too good to stick back in a bag and shove up in the loft…even if I just do the dishes in it I’m not putting it away!!

Thank you sooooooo much Jo, you are so very talented in what you do and I know you are making so many girls dreams come true every day.

Massive love and hugs.

Thanks so much to Nikki for writing this testimonial too…

If anyone was to describe me, they would say I was fussy, headstrong and incredibly particular about the clothes I like! In the run up to my wedding in July last year, I visited numerous wedding shops where I was left feeling deflated as I couldn’t seem to find the dress which fitted the bill. I wanted a vintage, french style with a bit of a unique twist. After scouring the internet I came across The Couture Company in Birmingham; it was right on my doorstep! After my first session with Jo and her team, they quickly and skillfully designed a dress which met every detail that I had been looking for. Over the next few months they crafted a dress which had a traditional style but was teamed with a quirky, modern twist. The quality of the fabric was second to none and the dress was made to fit me perfectly. I can’t thank Jo and her team enough for my perfect dress. I would highly recommend these skilled ladies! Thanks , Nikki”

Lowri’s opulent red corset dress for a coastal alternative fun filled wedding

I am so happy to share this awesome bride and her gorgeous wedding with you today!!!!!

When Lowri came to us we were mega flatterered, not only did she travel up to see us from Devon , she also said she had done lots of research and couldn’t find anyone who did the kind of designs we did, and as designers that is a extra special compliment to know that brides recognise our own unique style.The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(1) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(2) (Copy)

Lowri had a wonderful fun packed  wedding on the coast, jam packed with loads of activities for her guest to enjoy, Lowri and Lee thought of everything for everybody at their wedding, and that really comes across in her beautiful photographs, The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(3) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(4) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(5) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(6) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(7) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(8) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(9) (Copy) The-couture-company-bespoke-alternative-wedding-quirky-unusual-gowns-corset-red-butterflies-heart-curvy-plus-size-dresses-vevi-wedding-photography(10) (Copy)

I cannot thank Lowri enough, she has been such a champion for the Couture Company, not only by trusting us to design her gown along with very personalised embroideries, but by shouting about us whenever she gets the chance. I am so glad to share this lovely testimonial with you brides to be, hope fully it will give you an insight into how we work :)

“I knew my dress had to be red and I knew the basic shape I wanted, but finding a quirky alternative dress that was still beautiful, enhancing and not too ‘out there’ was not as easy as I assumed it would be”, she explained. “Then I found The Couture Company. I tried to find someone similar more locally but once I’d seen Jo’s dresses no-one else could compare! In the end it was so worth it to me to travel to Birmingham for my fittings. I booked an appointment and all I can say is the whole process was a dream. Jo got what I wanted from the start and was flexible enough to alter the personalisation halfway through when I changed my mind. Jo really made me look just as I imagined I would on my wedding day. She was amazing!”

Emily’s smokey grey dress was her all the way- A bespoke alternative wedding dress

Absolutely thrilled this week to have these awesome photographs by Chris Barber from Emily’s wedding!!!

We loved working with Emily on her wedding dress in creating something that was totally her!GrahamEmily-0292

We were really blown away by her wonderful testimonial

” I originally tried to find a dress on the high street, but after a couple of shopping trips I couldn’t find anything that felt special enough for my wedding day. ‘That’s it’, I thought, ‘I’m going to have to go to a proper wedding dress shop’. This was something I was dreading. I knew I didn’t want to wear white and wasn’t sure if I would feel myself in a traditional gown. Where was I going to find a dress that was unique, comfortable and reflected my personality?

Then, I remembered I had seen the Couture Company at the EWE wedding fair and liked the fact that they championed brides of all shapes and sizes and could cater for a wide range of style preferences. I made an appointment… and I’m so glad I did – as soon as I stepped inside the studio I knew I didn’t have to shop anymore, I had found what I was looking for! I told Jo my ideas and before I knew it she had drawn a beautiful little sketch of my dress. It was all very exciting.

GrahamEmily-0297 GrahamEmily-0301However, my favourite experience was the second fitting when I got to try my dress on for the first time. I felt the skirt was a bit too long, so I picked up the material in a haphazard way and said, ‘Oh I quite like it when it looks messy’. Jo told me not to move and immediately started pinning and cutting – with me still in the dress! It was such a spontaneous moment and it was fantastic to be a part of the creative process like that. And, the end result? I couldn’t have asked for more – it was absolutely wonderful!

I think Jo and her team played a big part in the fact that I felt just like myself on my wedding day. I didn’t have to worry about the dress as I knew every inch had been carefully crafted. As we got married near the Couture Company studio we were even able to pop in on the day and thank Jo in person. It was lovely to surprise her and allow her to see her work in all its glory!

Fran and Lewis’s belated Halloween alternative wedding with cats at a castle

FranLewisAssassynation-10544Well where do i start with this wedding ??? :)

Fran is just my ultimate bride, I was hooked on her wedding from the moment she got in touch!!! originally she had planned a Halloween wedding but gorgeous baby Nancy Stein’s arrival had some influence on that getting put back a little :) so fast forward to March this year, and Fran and her beau Lewis were married in castle, they took their 2 sphynx cats, their family and had an awesome day at Tutbury castle and its ruins. We love Fran, totally gorgeous girl that she is, she rocks her curves like I only wish I could, and I absolutely love her awesome photographs by Assassynation

an I cannot Thank you enough for this beautiful testimonial ( it made my eyes leak !) x

FranLewisAssassynation-10283The Dress- Ok so Fran is obsessed with leopard pattern print, so when she told me this we had to have it in the dress, but we didnt want it “in your face” leopard, we wanted to give it a subtler look, so we over laid the corset and skirt with a gorgeous silk organza over dress in a really lush charcoal grey . Then because we had achieved such a magnificient corsetted  waistline   we had to show that off with a bright red colour pop belt, and Fran asked us to do a Heartogram in jet beads, which of course we did on a back drop of beaded leopard print!!! Of course we did !! I love how the organza covers the corset and skirt but shows them off at the same time, and I love the organza over her beautiful tattoos, just gorgeous !!!!

This wedding makes me very proud of our Team at The Couture Company , and proud of what a great team we make :)

“I was planning my wedding but knew that I would eventually have to face the awful prospect of wedding dress shopping. I had been to traditional wedding dress shops with friends for their weddings, and absolutely dreaded walking into a shop full of long white dresses, diamante and disapproving glances at my above average size. My fiancé and I trawled through sites – each one pushing me further into despair until we thought of alternative wedding dresses. I saw a photo of a beautiful black gown from the Couture Co, which made such a vivid impression I knew I had to go there. I assumed they must be in America – a wedding dress shop this amazing couldn’t be in this country – but it was and only a 25 minute drive from me! I couldn’t believe my luck! I rang and made an appointment straight away. A few days later I was in the shop with my mum and sister and knew immediately that it was THE shop for me. There was no point in looking anywhere else!
I was really nervous – I’m not the most confident of people, bigger than most and have no idea what suits my body – or what I really wanted in a wedding dress. I have so many interests but no particular style. I love 50’s fashion, but I’m also a bit gothy with some grunge thrown in. I usually wear film/band T shirts and shorts or jeans with Dr Martens, so the prospect of choosing a dress scared me to death.
Jo made me feel so comfortable straight away. She asked me what I was looking for and I think she knew I didn’t really have a clue. She asked about my interests and passions, and about Lewis and his ideas for Groom suits. My only helpful idea at this point was that I wanted sleeves! I tried the black dress on that I saw online, but it wasn’t really me. Jo didn’t make me feel terrible – that it was somehow my fault that the dress wasn’t right – something that terrified me from ordinary wedding shops. Jo suggested that I tried a corset (which I ADORED) and there was no going back. It was beautifully made and my waist looked tiny, which is always good. I remember walking around the shop in just a corset and underskirt and I would have happily walked down the aisle like that! My mum mentioned my love for Leopard print, which I never thought I could incorporate into my wedding dress…but when Jo brought out some material and I instantly fell in love.
Jo drew a sketch of the overall dress and it was amazing! We were all so excited– everything came together so perfectly. Jo is so talented – she had amazing ideas and she never once made me feel like I was too fat or ridiculous to wear this fantastic dress. She seemed to understand me, putting my personality into the dress and checking that I was happy with her interpretation. I didn’t feel pressured or railroaded into something that would make me feel uncomfortable – Jo has such a lovely way of making you seem the most interesting person in the room. I actually said to my mum on the way home that I felt that Jo had dived into my head and pulled out my perfect wedding dress.

I was so excited for every fitting, and Jo and her team made me feel so comfortable. They are also really adjustable and compassionate. I was measured for my dress, but a few months later I emailed Jo to say we were expecting a baby! My wedding date changed and the whole wedding dress ended up being nearly two years in the making. I stayed in contact with Jo, who was really understanding when it came to extended payments and fittings and the change of wedding date. I doubt this would have happened anywhere else!

I’m so glad I found Jo and the lovely Couture Co. I felt so amazing and gorgeous on my wedding day, and Lewis couldn’t stop looking me. We had kept the design a total secret, so the reaction when I walked into the castle for my wedding was incredible. I had gone from uncomfortable, worried to death bride to confident 50’s leopard skin vamp (complete with cat ears) in one go. I had never felt so good about myself – and Jo had made it all happen. I honestly couldn’t fault a single thing – my dress was perfect for a formal castle wedding to jumping the broomstick at our handfasting ceremony – I just wish that Jo could design and make all my clothes! I cant thanks Jo and her team enough!”

Hayley got married in our Inkspiration – a tattooed alternative wedding dress

Hayley first conatcted us, telling us she dreaded dress shopping, as she wasn’t a “girly girl” and didn’t wear dresses, but she LOVED our Inkspiration tattooed gown that she had spied when searching the web, and she ended up falling for it hook line and sinker, there were even a few tears!!!

Hayley is very much an outdoors person and she wanted her wedding to reflect that , lots of fun, and lots of dancing, and she wanted to wear something that would have room for both :) Thanks Hayley for your pics and a very honest and lovely testimonial :)IMG_1612428602931Hayley writes “Well, I never thought I’d be faced with a decision to choose a wedding dress. I don’t do dresses. Or makeup, or much girly to be honest. I’m an outdoor girl, climbing, snowboarding, and playing in the alps. Not much scope for dresses.
, After being dragged kicking and screaming into a local bridal shop with my sister. . (Which was horrendous!!) , I started scouring the Web  and I spotted THE dress. Half joking with myself, but also in the knowledge it was the closest I’d come to wanting to wear one.
It had tattoos all over it. Was fifties style, funky, and not the norm. Much more like it. As my husband to be was to wear a “shite shirt”….. I’ll let you look them up. . . A proper traditional  frock would not do.
I contacted Jo at the couture company, and made my appointment.
I honestly didn’t expect to burst into tears, in a good way, because I loved it so much, but also cost was not what I’d ever considered to spend, especially not on a dress!
A can of coke and piece of cake, phone call with tears to stew later, who informed me if I was crying over a dress then I’d better have it, as nothing else would do . . . Done deal. I’d have to work my butt off for the next eight weeks to have it. And so would Jo and her team as it was rather last minute.
Jo dealt with my tears and dress fear well, creating with me something exactly that I wanted, tattoos, sleeves, v neck shape, none of that satin stuff inside. . Instead some cotton, and definately not puffy. I think I became a bit bridezilla ish for a while!
My first fitting arrived, I was so excited and nervous.
Everything I had decided on went out the window, off with the sleeves, and on with the puffy. . Lots of it too. I wanted this dress to twirl when I danced. Jo altered everything, swapping and changing to my demands. Finally collecting the finished dress, with my mum in law to be. . Who was a little dubious of my plans. . .It was fantastic. And she loved it too . “Very you” she said. I just couldn’t wait to wear it now.
And it is the most wonderful dress in the world, embroidered with “bloke and bird” as we affectionately call each other! Wings on the back, and love hearts Bon Jovi style round the bottom. Red and black hem underneath. Just amazing. Loved wearing it so much, coupled up with my red doc martins :-)
We were to marry on the Isle of skye, outside, underneath our favourite mountains.. The black Cuillin.
The weather had other ideas, tail end of hurricanes from the Atlantic lashed the north west.
We were not dampened. . . The ceremony was held inside the Sligachan hotel. It was brief, no fuss, and we were married.
We did pop outside for some wet blown away photos. . . Which to be honest summed us up perfectly rather than looking all posh and groomed, hair everywhere. . Situation normal.
My dress swung round fabulously when we danced, and blew around in style in the wind outside. Everyone spent the day photographing up close the tattoos, and the comments of admiration for it made me feel a million dollars.
You made the dream dress for me Jo and I never thought that possible. I can’t ever thank you enough, it was worth every penny and more. :-) xx ”

Kate and Sean got married and Kate had an Ice blue 1950’s vintage inspired wedding dress

Congratulations to our bride Kate and her fella Sean who got married in December on a gorgeous crisp day in the gorgeous picturesque town of Stratford.

Kate cames to us wanting a vintage inspired dress with modern twist, so we got to work on designing her dream gown, and included her favorites a Dragonfly and snowflakes

Kate wrote us a lovely testimonial, and we are so happy and proud to have been able to make her dream dress :)

“I initially found the thought of wedding dress shopping mildly terrifying to start off with. I knew from the start I didn’t want a traditional style of dress, but had no idea what other options I had available. Some serious internet research later, (and a little hint off the lovely Sassy!) I made my first and only appointment at a wedding dress shop and the awesome journey began!

From the first moment I walked in to Jo’s gorgeous store full of nerves, I knew I had found the right place for me. Jo listens to your ideas (I had literally none!) and then lets you rifle through the rails of what can only be described as dress heaven :-) I picked out three or four I wanted to try then the fun bit began!

After going home to ponder, I finally settled on ‘The One’ and went back to the shop the following day. Jo listened to my ideas, gave some fabulous ones of her own and together we settled on a final design.

All through the process, Jo and her team were absolutely lovely. I enjoyed every single one of my fittings and was made to feel at ease at every stage. To see your dress take shape each time you pop in was fabulous to see, and you knew that what you were getting was absolutely one of a kind. Not many brides can truly say that.

The finished dress was so much more than I could have ever dreamt of, I was absolutely blown away. Happily so was my husband! He has said that it was better than he ever could have imagined (there were even a few tears! ) All day long I had comments from friends and family saying how wonderful and original it was, even the registrars complimented it!

I really cannot recommend Jo and her team enough. If you want the dress of your dreams, and I genuinely believe that no dream is too crazy! Then Jo can make them come true for you….. Kate xxx ”

Jessica’s 1940’s inspired silk crepe wedding gown with pearl button details

Jessica came to us wanting something very 1940’s inspired, something full length with long sleeves, something she felt comforatable in as well as looking uber glamourous in also. We loved working on this gown, the silk crepe falls so beautifully and the whole dress just look so scrummy with the pearl button finish. We were so excited to receive these photos and such a lovely testimonial, Thanks Jess xxxthe-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (1) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (2)  the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (4) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (5)  the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (7) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (8) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (9) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (10) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (11) the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-filmstar-hoolywood-glamour-wedding-dress-1940s-1930s-vintage-inspired (12)
I’ve always known that when I got married I wanted to wear a dress that no one would ever imagine I would go for. I love all things vintage, 1950’s is my favourite fashion era however did not want a 50’s style wedding dress. I had an image in my head of what I wanted my dress to look like and knew that I would have to get it made. I came across The Couture Company’s website and thought when the day comes, these are the people for me! As soon as Ciarán popped the question it was a case of get the phone and book an appointment!

I was so nervous waiting for my first appointment to arrive, I kept thinking with 2 pictures and an image of my dream wedding dress in my head, how do I explain what I want! I told Jo what I wanted hoping that she could picture the same image I had in my head, she went away and came back with a sketch and it was perfect, exactly what I had imagined!
Every appointment was so exciting see the progress of my dress and then the final appointment came, the moment I got to see my dress. That moment is one I will never forget, I was so overwhelmed it was perfect!

On the day I felt amazing, the dress was just perfect. Everyone loved it and said how beautiful it was and looked on me. I felt like a vintage Hollywood superstar. It was such a comfortable dress to wear, so easy to move and dance in. It was just perfect. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives!

Thank you to Jo and team for creating the dress of my dreams

Jess xx

I knew from the very first email that Jo was the one who could make my dreams come true of creating my perfect dress, I threw lots of ideas and styles at her and explained that leopard print had to be the main ingredient. So when we met up at my first appointment it didn’t take long for us to come up with the perfect dress. Jo took on board everything we had discussed, all of my ideas and threw a few of her own in and hey presto we had the blue prints for what was to be “the one” as they say you know when you have found “the dress” and there it was on paper xx over the next few months at each appointment I saw my dress go from a beautiful drawing to a beautiful stunning gown that I just couldn’t wait to wear with each appointment I fell more n more in love with my dress at that’s all thanks to Jo and her team of fantastic team of ladies who I can only describe as miracle workers dream makers and all round fantastic people xx I always dreaded that I would have to marry in white as I never knew bridal shops like couture existed (there’s nothing wrong with marrying in white but it’s just not for me) my husband was blown away with how stunning I looked and I felt amazing like a funky punky princess xx he said he fell in love with me all over again in my dress xx also I love the fact it was a two piece and I can wear my Corset with jeans etc xx of it was up to my husband I think I would be wearing my dress every day ha ha xx so thanks again to Jo and her team for making my dreams come true and designing and creating me perfect wedding dress ”

A castle wedding with a medievil twist for our lovely bride Harriet and her boy Josh

Huge massive congratulations and THANKS to the lovely Harriet for sharing her castle wedding with us. Harriet and Josh were married last summer and and a bit of a medievil twist to the proceedings, and even got time to do some archery!!the-couture-company-alternative-wedding-dresses-cream-curvy-plus-size-castle-short-bride-quirky-tea-length-lace-frock  (5) (Copy)

Harriet chose a version of our Zoe gown, in a gorgeous butter cream tone, she added her own twists with the cute cap sleeves and colours of her wedding on both her petticoat and her buttons.

This style totally suited her curves, and she looked bloomin’ gorgeous!!! the-couture-company-alternative-wedding-dresses-cream-curvy-plus-size-castle-short-bride-quirky-tea-length-lace-frock  (7) (Copy) the-couture-company-alternative-wedding-dresses-cream-curvy-plus-size-castle-short-bride-quirky-tea-length-lace-frock  (8) (Copy) the-couture-company-alternative-wedding-dresses-cream-curvy-plus-size-castle-short-bride-quirky-tea-length-lace-frock  (10) (Copy)

Thanks so much to Harriet for this fab testimonial xxx

As a plus size girl the prospect of wedding dress shopping was more than a little daunting.

Before going to the couture company I had been to a local shop. Despite my request to try different styles I seemed to end up in a sweetheart neckline dress with ruching around my waist with the lady saying its flattering to hide my stomach. I left the shop feeling flat.

Meeting jo and the team couldn’t have been more different. I was given free reign over what style dress I could try…everything from 1920s style to grecian godess and got a strong idea of what looked good and more importantly made me feel good. Jo just understood me and really helped to boost my confidence. ..she made suggestions and guided me through the process of making my dress…it was a truly special experience and the one to one sessions were fab. Even if you aren’t creative like me you get the support and encouragement you need to get the dress of your dreams.

When the finished dress was given to me I couldn’t stop smiling..it was so perfect. On my wedding day I had so many compliments on the style and quality of the dress and my husband loved the fact it was so unique. It matched our theme perfectly…traditional with a twist…couldn’t have asked for better.

Prospective brides you absolutely must visit jo and the team before making your choice. ..you won’t regret it x”

blue-wedding-dress-bride-20-640x962the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-blue-tattoo-tattooed-wedding-dress-rock-and-roll-bride-short-quirky (2)We are over the  moon “albeit a blue moon” to share the photos of our gorgeous bride Charlotte and her beau Bryn’s wedding, We are so honoured that Charlotte chose us to make her wedding gown, and that she travelled from Liverpool for all her fittings . !!the-couture-company-alternative-bespoke-blue-tattoo-tattooed-wedding-dress-rock-and-roll-bride-short-quirky (1) From the very beginning Charlotte knew she wanted blue, and the exact shade of blue too, we just had to come up with the design, something, cute , short, yet elegant, that totally suited her petite figure, I think between us we nailed it , because from what Charlotte wrote in her testimonial I hope we hit all the right buttons :)

Charlotte wrote these lovely words in a Thank You email, we are so blessed to have such wonderful clients and totally honoured that we get such amazing feedback

“Dear Jo and everyone at The Couture Company,
I can’t thank you enough for the absolutely stunning dress that you created for me. Our wedding day was perfect and as you can see from the photos attached we literally laughed throughout!
Walking down the aisle was in no way nerve racking for me. I thought being the centre of attention would make me squirm but when it came down to it, because I was wearing something truly beautiful which was exactly how I wanted it to be I felt completely comfortable in my own skin and I knew from the first moment I tried on a ‘traditional white wedding dress’ in a high street bridal shop that I would never feel like that in one of them.
Everyone commented on how ‘me’ my dress was which was obviously a massive compliment!
Before the ceremony I had to meet with the Registrars and when I walked through the door one of them said ‘Well I wasn’t expecting that’. I’m pretty sure the dress was a first for many!
And most importantly Bryn loved it and told me how beautiful I looked about a million times (which never gets old ha!)
Every time I visited you at the shop you were lovely and you made the whole process so stress free and friendly! I am slightly sad that I no longer have train rides to Birmingham with my sister to look forward to and the excitement of reaching the Custard Factory.
But there can always be a vow renewal and then of course I’d need another dress…
A massive thank you again!!!!!!
Love
Charlotte
