Why Us?

Made In England

We make all our gowns at our studio in Birmingham, England. We believe strongly in keeping British skills here and home grown, we care passionately  enough that we do not want to out source our designs to the far east for a cheap and more profitable bottom line. We re-invest in our local economy and try to champion and promote local talents and skills.

Obviously it would be easy to get our production done in countries with much cheaper overheads and labour costs, but who would love your dress every step of the way? How would you get to input into your gown along the way and wouldn’t you feel better about supporting a local home grown business?

Made With Love

We love working on the creations we get to work on, each one is different to the next, with a different face, a different body and a different story. 

We listen and we LOVE our work, there is no job better than ours – Fact!!

Made For YOU

Our creations are made with each individual client in our heart and mind.

We walk your wedding journey with you, we create  a gown that fits you and your uniqueness perfectly.

 

We work with YOU, we don’t adapt designs so you fit in with them instead we create your gown so that it fits in with YOU

What Our Customers Say About Us

“Where to start???

I met Jo at EWE wedding fayre in Birmingham (google it: AMAZING). Immediately liked her honest, unique and experienced way of talking.

Booked in a visit; never had been to see any wedding dresses at this point so had no idea what to expect. Well well well… totally blew my mind!! Her shop/studio/palace is amazing. SHE is amazing. Her team is amazing.

The dress was designed in Jo’s massive creative mind and she sketched it out on a bit of paper whilst I was babbling on. Incredible genius that she is, it was perfection.

Suffice to say, it’s just incredible.

If you feel in any way self conscious, confused about the process, or are utterly bored by the same old wedding dresses that you find literally everywhere else, then Jo and her team are for you. Honestly, you won’t look anywhere else. She’s just the best.”

“I knew I’d struggle with off the rail bridal gowns, especially having to battle with body confidence issues, not feeling confident was something that I didn’t want to ruin our big day.  Jo and the team managed to create a dress that not only made me feel confident but that was comfortable to wear for the whole day and to dance all night in too!”

– Annie S

“From our initial consultation, right up until completion, my experiences were all amazing! 

There is nothing that Jo didn’t deliver, even when I changed my mind on a few things, she never made me feel like I was being a pain, and her patience is amazing ! 

Jo and the girls are just a wonderful bunch of people , and it was a pleasure on each visit. I believe there is nobody out there that could have designed and made my dress any better and would recommend them to everyone wanting a dress that is different from the usual stuff in the shops! 

THANK YOU all so much xx my dress is amazing and everyone loved it so much xxxx”
