Wedding Dresses|BespokeFelicity Westmacott

I create luxurious wedding dresses, combining my skill and your dreams, for adventurous brides who seek the extraordinary in dress form. With bespoke bridal there are no limits to the possibilities, whatever your style or figure.


The creation of each bespoke wedding dress involves a design consultation, perfecting the fit and a couture finish. Prices usually start at £2400 + fabrics but are as varied as the needs of my clients.


Let me use my artistry and expertise to conjure your dress to reality.

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

I occasionally accept alterations for style or fit, to vintage or shop bought dresses.

Helen GordonThe day was lovely and the dress was a big 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…
The dress AlchemistMy Design Philosophy

bespoke bridal with

felicity westmacott


I love reassuring brides who have found off the peg shopping intimidating or disappointing because Bespoke Bridal is the perfect alternative! It’s not like buying on the high street where you join a crowd of brides who identify with the style of a particular wedding dress designer. I do NOT seek to impose my own style on my clients.


Central to my philosophy is being able to distil the essence of each client into dress form. The design and fit will be perfect because the unique dress is an expression of a unique bride.


I encourage brides to shrug off the pressure to conform. See my blog post all about this.


I create dresses that tell a story. The story of this bride on this day. Unique, personal and unforgettable.

bespoke bridal

ensures A perfect Fit


I start by taking extensive measurements and then draft a unique pattern for each bride. You will try on a toile (practice run) and then a series of fittings ensures perfection of fit and comfort.


I love to help brides with unusual figures or who need a plus size wedding dress. Whether you would like your dress to just grace your figure, disguise problem areas or show off your curves, my method will work for you!


Past clients have said I helped them feel confident and glorious on their wedding day.

is the dress alchemistFelicity Westmacotta little about me

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. This means I can use my couture skills to create elegant and contemporary gowns as well as historical and theatrical styles. One of my greatest pleasures is seeing my clients over the moon with happiness as their dress ideas come to life.


True to my background in theatre I approach each wedding dress as I would a costume. A costume tells you about the character and story of someone in a film or play. In the same way, I think the purpose of your wedding dress is to say something special about this woman on this day. A wedding dress tells the story of your past and your hopes for the future. That’s why the dress is so important, special, and unique.

Katie DarvallI want to thank Felicity for making me the most wonderful wedding dress! It was very easy taking my ideas to Felicity who designed and then made the perfect dress for my special day. I was able to incorporate my colour scheme and butterflies by having the dress made specifically for me and of course it also meant that it fitted beautifully.
Michelle MeiThanks again SO much for all your help and amazing skill and work. The dress was so comfortable and beautiful, it really was the dream dress!

Thanks again!

Ellie KingFirstly I wanted you to know what a GRANDDDD success the dress was. It was absolutely superb and I still go and unzip the cover and have a peek at it. So many people commented on it. I am so grateful for all the hours you put in! You did a incredible job. It was exactly what I wanted so thank you. Only you could have done that job!
Wedding dress shop front Felicity Westmacott Dorking

Look out for my pink front door!

With junction 9 of the M25 just 15 minutes up the hill I'm lucky to meet brides from all over the South East. I've had clients travel from Kent, Sussex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Brighton.

Parking is easy with a big Pay and Display right behind the shop, off Wathen Road.


Brides often remark what a delightful surprise it is to find me close to home in Surrey, for brides coming from Redhill, Reigate, Caterham, Horley, Dorking, Epsom or Guildford.


But my clients travel too, as access is easy from London by train or car. Dorking is only 40 minutes direct from Waterloo.

Overseas clients are common too as Gatwick airport half an hour away by train, or 20 minutes in a taxi. And Heathrow airport is an easy 40 minutes around the M25 from my studio
