The Journey

When it comes to you and your wedding dress. 


Why not pop in and have a chat with us to find out more of what you can get from the Sophie Wynne-Owen collection dress or a bespoke design for you.

Design Process

Once you have booked in for a Design consultation you will need to start collecting images, drawings and ideas for your dress.

If you have decided that you like one of the Sophie Wynne-Owen collection dresses then you can still have input within the design process, by changing colour, fabric and beading.

It is important to bring as many ideas with you to the design consultation. This will help us get everything you want in your dress and give you different ideas to play around with.

Fabric Selection

This process can be really fun and we here at Sophie Wynne-Owen Bridal Couture want give you the best quality fabric.

We offer a wide variety of fabrics, from silk to faux satins and crepes, these can all comes in many different colours.

We also have a huge range of lace to chose from along side trims, embroidery and beads.

Our main aim is to make sure that we can find the perfect fabric for you.

Finalising the Design

When finalising bespoke dress designs do not worry at this stage. There is still time to change your mind.

We will give you 10 working days to come to a decision and to finalise the design.

We can also create sections of 2 designs if you cannot make a final decision.

We buying from the Sophie Wynne-Owen Collection there are many options that can be added and taken aways from designs. We want to make sure that you have the perfect dress for you.

Mock up ‘Toile’

 This is when the final design starts to come to life. Here at Sophie Wynne-Owen Bridal Couture we make a mock up of your dress in calico. This helps us get the perfect fit. Don’t be scared of the mock up dress. It is a tool for us at SWO to help with the fit and to make your dream dress come to life and fit you perfectly.

We also advice that you have your shoes at this point, before we start to cut out in the real fabric. It will help us create the perfect length dress for you.

Once the fit is correct and you are happy this is the when the exciting part of your journey begins.


As we start to create your dress there will be points within the creation where we will need to do finalising within fittings to make sure the dress is perfect.

Final Fit

Once we have finished the dress we will book you in for a final fit to make sure everything is perfect. Any changes that need to be made will be dealt with in this fitting. If the dress is perfect then you are welcome to leave with it that day. If the dress needs some amendments we will re-arrange a collection and final fitting date but there is no need to worry at this stage. We pride ourselves in making every brides dream dress come to life.
