The wedding was perfect, and I loved the dress. It couldn’t have been better made. Thank you very much for doing such a great job. You will definitely hear from me again in the future. I am thinking of having a full length coat made around summer time for next winter, so I’ll get in touch around that time.

Strapless fishtail wedding dress in Ivory lace by Felicity Westmacott, thank you letterThank you so so much for the amazing dress! You had the image I had in my head and made it real and I just can’t thank you enough for that! …. I just can’t thank you enough for making my dress so perfect. I loved it and so did everyone else! I’ve had so many comments!

Vicky Tyler

Dear Felicity, I know I’ve thanked you in lots of ways but I just wanted to write to say what a truly talented girl you are. You took my design and from day one made me feel like you were so passionate about it ? so sure of where you were going with it I felt totally at ease. I loved coming to your house and sharing everything form fabric samples to life stories with you and the final product ? simply breathtaking. I have had so many compliments on the dress ? all that detail and though paid off! I wish you every bit of success with your business and with the arrival of your beautiful new baby. Thank you a million times.

Rachel Tyler (Vicki’s mum) wrote: Vicki is so thrilled with her dress-every bit as pleased with how it has all come together as she planned. It would be lovely to see you at the church if you are free. Finally and far too late I get around to writing to you. Your creation for Vicki was just so utterly perfect and so right for her. She looked exactly how she had hoped to and I know it was far beyond her hopes and dreams. You took so much care and of course it showed. The fit was perfect, it moved as she moved and the ooh’s and ahh’s said it all. I do so hope your pregnancy goes well and you have an easy time. Enjoy being a mum! With greatest thanks and best wishes


Everyone was blown away by the dress! I did not want to take it off!!! I look at her (the dress) hanging and I want to wear her again! Hope you like the pics. I tried choosing pics that would show the dress off as much as possible but the pictures sometimes don’t do her justice!

Satin and lace wedding dress by Felicity Westmacott: thank you letter

Thank you for the amazing job you did in creating the perfect dress for me. It ticked all the boxes and had everyone commenting on how lovely I looked and what a gorgeous dress I had. We had the most fantastic day. Thank you!

Issie Harris

Dear Felicity,?Thank you so much for making my wedding dress, it is absolutely beautiful and I had great fun swinging the train around with the hand loop! Getting it on was a mission though – you made it look easy! I will send some pictures as soon as we get them back. I might be in touch again to see if you can transform my dress into something I can wear again and again ? it would be such a shame to have it hang up out of sight for the rest of it’s life. Best of luck with baby number 2, I hope everything goes well for you.

Katie Darvall

I want to thank Felicity for making me the most wonderful wedding dress! I tried on so many in the shops but nothing was quite right. 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 (Aqua) and theme (Butterflies) by having the dress made specifically for me and of course it also meant that it fitted beautifully. The cost worked out at no more than buying a shop bought one too!
I had so many compliments on the day itself and am still getting them now when people see the photos- I would highly recommend using Felicity’s services to anyone who is getting married

Tracey Crawford

Just a quick note to say that Peter and I returned from our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago after a very lovely wedding ceremony at Langshott Manor. As promised, I attach a few photographs, with particular emphasis on the gorgeous dress you made me and which drew so many appreciative comments from friends and family. I would like to say again how very much I enjoyed the process of designing a dress with you ? from choosing a fabric to discussing design and getting fitted, it was a joy to watch it all come together. I hope these photos and comments are of use to you on future projects, but please let me know if you need any further reference, as I would be happy to supply one.
Kind regards Tracey Gill (nee Crawford!)
