I absolutely adore the dress that Ash created for me! I would highly recommend going to her to get your dream dress made.
Before finding Ash, I went to a number of stores and found that I loved bits and pieces of all different dresses. She had the abilty to put together the best parts of all of them (including pockets), even when I didn’t quite know what I wanted or didn’t provide great direction.
She went above and beyond, even travelling to the coast to deliver my dress! Ash, you are a true talent and made the process so calm and enjoyable. Thank you so so much!

Choosing Ash to create my custom made bridal gown was one of the easier decisions when planning my wedding. She encouraged me to go visit boutiques to determine what I liked and didn't like and what styles best suited my body shape and aesthetic.
Ash helped to bring my ideas to life and any challenge was addressed head on with the attitude that nothing would be too difficult. If you're looking to combine elements from a number of different dresses or you don't even know where to start, give Ash a call and by the end of your session, she'll feel like an old friend you've known for years.
Her attention to detail and service is second to none and I was elated to see the final product; a true piece of quality craftsmanship.

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful it was to have Ash design my dream wedding dress. From the moment we met over FaceTime I knew she was the one I wanted to have design and create my dress.
Before I found Ash, I really struggled to find a dress that flattered my body shape and was different from everything else on the market. There were so many boxes that my dream dress had to tick and Ash not only exceeded my expectations but did it with such patience and skill. I’m so honoured to have worn a dress that was perfectly made for me that I still love so much!

Ash made the process of designing and making my wedding dress an absolute dream! Once the Covid situation unfolded I was more and more worried about how I would find a dress with stores shut, but looking back I wouldn’t have it any other way.
From start to finish Ash was so professional, helpful, and friendly, not to mention SO incredibly talented. I love how unique my dress is and how we got to “play around” with different elements to come up with something special.
I would 11/10 recommend Ash to anyone - having a custom made dress with her was so special, and I’ve had so many lovely comments about my wedding dress. I can’t wait to see our professional photos!

Deciding to have my wedding dress made was the BEST decision that I made in the whole wedding planning process. I knew that I wanted something special and I went and tried on a few dresses in shops but I wanted to explore some other options. I went to another dressmaker, which someone had recommended but something wasn’t right… I loved the idea of having something made to measure, that would fit perfectly... and then I found Ash! I knew that this was the right decision and I couldn’t wait to get started.
Having all of my bridesmaids in different states and my mum and sister in the UK, the dress process could have been filled with really mixed emotions but every fitting with Ash was something that I not only looked forward to, but loved! The whole process was amazing! Every time I had a fitting, she was so accommodating and understanding, doing everything she could to make sure that I was comfortable and happy as each stage went by. The dress evolved over the months before the wedding and I couldn't have loved it more! Everyone was complimenting me on the day, including the videographers who I am sure had seen many a wedding dress in their time.
I would recommend Ash to anyone who is getting married! Thank you so much for making our wedding even more special than I thought it could be. xxx

I can't thank you enough for helping me to create the wedding dress of my dreams. Not only are you ridiculously talented at what you do, but you are one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
You have been so patient throughout the whole process and I really hope you continue to follow your passion because you are one of a kind. I've loved having you as a friend, not just a dressmaker.

Ashleigh is amazing!! After not being able to find any wedding dress I loved, she took my vision, made it her own & crafted a piece greater than my wildest dreams!
The precision, care & love she put into every little detail literally made my dress perfect! Every meeting & fitting with Ash left me with so much confidence, right from the beginning. Even my Mum who was a dress-maker was very impressed on the first meeting after seeing her perfect work! I can only speak highly of who Ash is, her integrity & her one-of-a-kind, outstanding-quality work!
Getting my dress custom made was so special to me, my family & my husband - who even had a dream of the exact dress Ashleigh so lovingly made! Since my wedding, every bride-to-be I know has asked me whether they should go see Ashleigh & my answer has always been YES! There's truly no one else who can offer what she does!
I wish I had more reasons to wear my wedding dress because I still love it & always will!

Ash, I LOVE my dress! Honestly Mum and I took it out of the bag and it looks incredible!
It's amazing! Thank you so much for doing this for me. You've been an absolutely incredible person to be around. You've kept me completely calm when I felt like I was losing my mind!

Ashleigh did an amazing job with my bridesmaids dresses! I had two girls overseas, one arriving one week before the wedding and the other four days before. I was fairly stressed about this and how the fittings may go with the short timeframe, but Ash was so calm and reassuring about the whole situation.
I had my photo with me of what I wanted and she did an even better job at making them! We played around with fabrics and she was incredibly innovative in her approach. With the girls being overseas, all she needed was their measurements and each of dress fittings went really smoothly.
I really enjoyed every time I saw Ash and how the dresses were progressing. She was so relaxed, even with the girls coming in for fittings at such short notice, certain that each dress would be completed to perfection; and they were! They were absolutely perfect, the girls loved the fit, the fabric and the look, and I wouldn't change a thing about them.
My favourite part was seeing the mock-up of the dress early on and being able to visualise what it would look like on the day! I admire Ash's committed work ethic and her relaxed nature; she has helped to make fantastic memories. I would definitely recommend her to everyone who wants a dress that is unique and not off-the-rack and to those who themselves or their bridesmaids are unable to have dress fittings until shortly before a wedding.
Ash will do everything in her power to ensure that your wedding gown/bridesmaids dresses will be exactly as you desire. Thank you so much for your work!

I adore Ashleigh's work. She is brilliantly creative and skilled in couture but also incredibly personable and a joy to work with. She is deeply invested in each bride and gown that she works with, and her attention to detail is second to none.
I've always jumped at the chance to have Ash sew for me on any occasion! Everything she's made for me has fit like a glove and has made me feel like the most special person in the world.
