I don't know where to start with how incredible my experience with Stephanie was. From the moment I walked in to her studio I clicked with her and I knew she had to be the one to make my perfect dress! I was worried that it would be over my budget but we worked to what I wanted and it was actually a considerable amount cheaper than having an 'off the rail' dress. Steph worked with me through the whole process of deciding my likes/dislikes until we finally had the most amazing Cinderella dress.
I couldn't recommend this beautiful lady more, for not only being my dress maker but becoming a dear friend over the past year and literally being there for anything I needed, even if it was something absolutely ridiculous! Thank you so much my lovely! Xxx
Shop bought Vs Uniquely Handmade
When I first got engaged I didn’t really have any thoughts about what I wanted to get married in. I went to the boutiques and I tried on (what felt like). I built a Pinterest Board of the best bits of the dresses I saw, and I then saw how unrealistic it was that I would ever find it in a shop. Sleeves, but no lace, full skirt, but with a slit, backless but full front, sheer, yet with a bodice. Nobody made this dress.
I went to Steph as my friend and we had a chat about what I wanted, and as I spoke she was scribbling away on her little clipboard. At the end of the meeting, she turned the board around and I saw the dress. I loved it.
After the first meeting, Steph sent me different ideas for fabrics. I got to choose every detail, from the top beaded fabric, to the satin, and the buttons. I had fittings as often or as little as I wanted. It was difficult as I live in London, but she always worked to my availability which made things so easy.
I’m not going to lie, I was a nightmare. Each fitting I would find something I wanted to change (not because of anything that Steph had done, but because I absolutely did not look like the Pinterest models in the photographs when I tried it on) and Steph would cheerfully appease me, and change it, even if it meant pulling the dress apart at the seams and redoing it, she never complained or charged any extra.
I’m such a hard person to please but it was absolutely perfect. She made my veil (the longest veil I’ve ever seen) and charged much less than I have seen online. She also made my garter which matched my bridesmaid dresses, and my train had our married name and date embroidered into it!💜💙
My experience of making my wedding dress was everything it should be and so much more. Steph was patient and kind throughout the process. My friends and family said how beautiful the dress is and how much it reflected me and my tastes.
She made my flower girl tutu to match my uniquely altered bridesmaids dresses she altered!
In conclusion, I suppose I’m saying, absolutely go to the all the boutiques and drink the free bubbles when you are trying on 15 dresses and being clipped into each sample size, but ultimately don’t be disheartened when they aren’t perfect, take each of the bits you love, and build your own perfect dress with Steph
Working with Steph on my wedding dress was an absolute delight. I came to Steph with a few ideas of which I could not choose between, Stephs reply was quite simply 'Darling you dont have too!' And from there we created the dress of my dreams. Nothing phased Steph which was exactly what I needed from a dress designer, someone with as much enthusiasm as me, who would support my ideas.
Steph fully supported my choice to have a full vegan wedding dress, she made sure all of my fabrics were not derived from animals including no silk. From the designing to the fittings we had so much fun. I would recommend Steph to any one wanting to create their own dress, she makes you feel so special and is so easy to communicate openly and honestly with.
Thank you Steph for a year of joy in creating my dress. x x x

The hunt for my wedding dress started off being the most stressful, daunting task I think I'd ever faced. Needless to say after our first meeting all of those doubts were well out of my head!
Not only is Steph a drawing / design genius but she's such a lovely person you can't help but like her. What ever is housed in your head for your design, if it exists I can guarantee Steph will find it.
She will make you a one off dress that is so perfectly you that people will fall in love with The Dress as much as you do
Stephanie Kate Bridal Couture - best thing ever!
So honoured to be a Stephanie Kate Bride.
To have worn one of Steph's creations and to also have her as one of my best friends is incredible.
Talented, beautiful, passionate and authentic, you can't get this experience anywhere else. Steph, takes the time to get to know you and truly puts her heart and soul into creating the dress of your dreams.
Can't recommend Stephanie Kate Bridal enough
Having Stephanie Kate make my gown was the best experience ever.
Stephanie Kate is so talented and professional, from the very beginning of designing to getting me in my gown the morning of the wedding met my every need.
I would recommend a Stephanie Kate gown to any bride to be.
I’m going to miss our little get together.
I'm not sure where to start....Steph is so so talented & such a lovely person too. After seeing what an incredible dress she made for my best friend a couple of years ago, I asked her to make mine
- definitely the best decision I could have made!
From the 1st sketches to fitting me into my dress on the big day Steph could not have done any more for me if she had tried! Thank you so much for everything Steph - we love you & I've definitely made a friend for life.
Would recommend you to everyone xxxx
Amazing lady with the most infectious enthusiasm. You meet her as a stranger and leave her feeling like a friend. Nothing is too much trouble or effort for her and she makes you feel like you are the only bride she is working with when I know she has plenty on the go.
If you want to feel like a million dollars in a bespoke bridal gown then this beautiful woman is the one for the job. Cannot recommend enough

I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough. Such a talented and dedicated woman who strives and succeeds to create your dream dress.
From the moment I met Stephanie I knew she was the one to make my wedding dress, nothing was too much trouble for her. With her ideas, skill and experience my ‘one of a kind’ beautiful dress was created and I couldn’t have been happier.
I had my dream dress and made a lovely new friend in the process xx
After spending hours looking through bridal magazines and searching the internet for dress ideas I just couldn't see anything I loved.
After my first appointment with Steph I knew she was the person who was going to create my dream dress. After showing a few pictures of different dresses that I liked we managed to come up with something that had everything I wanted and was truly unique.
I loved watching my dress come together and was overwhelmed with the end result. Steph is a very talented lady with a fantastic warm personality which makes you feel very special and at ease as soon as you meet her.
Thank you so much, it was perfect xxxx
I can honestly say I have never met anyone so welcoming, loving & happy. She truly does make the most beautiful bespoke dresses she has made my wedding dress and my little princess’s christening gown, true pure perfection!! And out of it all have a forever friend!
I highly recommend this beauty as you’ll never look back I’m so pleased I came to her instead of buying a dress!! We love you lots xxxxx
I met Steph at a wedding Fayre and I immediately fell head over heals for her amazing presence ,warm character and her ability to make me feel amazing. As a plus size bride I was feeling I would never feel special on my wedding day. Steph’s amazing talent as both a designer and dress maker has allowed me to feel excited to be wearing my dress at our forthcoming day. She has literally come into my life and changed the way I feel about myself with her amazing skill and infectious personality.
Steph made my dreams become a reality with my Stevie nicks inspired dress, every step of the process was just wonderful and I love her endless enthusiasm and patience. She is the most talented woman I have had the pleasure of meeting and I can not thanks her enough for making the dress of my dreams.
