Why are we doing this offer you ask??? well…. Spring , Summer and Autumn are pretty hectic for us creating many awesome gowns for clients and our elves are working at full steam to create the years orders….but weddings are seasonal and Winter tends to be quieter for us…so we want to balance the production a bit more so we can spread out our creativity through the whole year..
As with all businesses we still need to cover our overheads year round and keep the elves busy and make enough to cover our costs….so we figured we can spread the load this way and start creating some of the Spring and Summer’s wedding orders in the Winter months….We keep busy in traditionally quieter times, and You get a bargain if you are happy to have your dress made earlier.
Get in touch and make your appointment now, Please not we have nothing available on Saturday 8th June
Feel free to share and tag your friends who are still looking for THE dress xx

Meet Elle, our very own Disney princess- Alternative Wedding Dresses

Elle is our very own Disney princess, Cinderella meets Belle and beyond!!! what an absolutely stunning bride she made, and how sweet her beau Billie was in buying her angel wing shoes as a wedding pressie.
This is a lovely story and seems a fitting testament and actual evidence of how long the Couture Company have been creating dresses… A while ago I received a fb message from Elle accompanied by a pic of her mum in her wedding dress, asking ” is this your design? I am trying to find the company who made my mums dress over 20 years ago” , it certainly looked like one of our designs from years ago but I couldn’t really tell if it was our dress as the pic was a bit blurry, but after asking some questions, we worked out that we did make the gown, and I used to sell gowns to Elle’s nan when she had a wedding shop in Staines…what a lovely trip down memory lane that was, Lorraine was such a lovely woman and i was delighted when she arrived all the way from Middlesex with Elle and her mum for one of her fittings. Elles dress was made from the same kind of silk and in the same shade as her mum’s gown all those years ago….. What a fairytale ending for this lovely family, and what a totally stunning bride and wedding this was xxxxxx Photos by Jason Clavey Photography

Ashley and Ben’s rainbow-tastic wedding will brighten your life-Alternative Wedding Dresses

Ashley and Ben were married last year and boy did they have a colourful wedding!!

We LOVE these photos, so much fun, so happy!!!

Thanks so much to Ashely for this amazing and honest testimonial

” So my original budget for a dress was around £500 I never cared (or thought so) much about what dress I was going to wear I just wanted a 50s cut style with a rainbow petticoat so was just going to get a cheap one off of eBay or rack from a conventional wedding dress shop. The plan was always to spend more on bens suit because he cared more. But when I found you guys on Instagram and visited your workshop/store I instantly fell in love ? the idea of being able to have a dress completely tailored to me was like a dream! I live in handmade dresses so it only seemed natural. As a larger lady I knew what shape would suit me and I knew I wanted rainbow somewhere on the dress but also as much as a pastel bright pink outrageous dress would of been awesome I wanted to look as much like a bride as I could because you only do it once (if your lucky) ?

You guys made every appointment comfortable and welcoming especially as I was on my own with 3/4 of them. You listened to what I wanted and designed it down to a tea. I never felt like my ideas where not right and forced into a look I didn’t want. You helped in so many ways and create me a dress I couldn’t of dreamt of.


My husband semi knew about my dress and the style, colour and design as he came to one fitting with me (I didn’t let him see me in it though) I really care about his opinions because he gives good ideas as he’s a bit of a creative type.

When he saw me in my dress walking down the isle on the big day he saids I look happy with the way that I looked and that was the most important thing to him and beyond anything else I looked appropriate for the day we were planning to have.

Of course he saids I looked beautiful and what not but let’s be realistic he would say that. He just loved how relaxed and comfortable I was wearing it and that makes him happy too.

Thanks a bunch!
