Felicity Westmacott – in a nutshell
- Bespoke wedding dresses from design to completion
- 15 years experience helping hundred of brides
- Alterations and restyling to off the peg and vintage gowns
- Lace work specialist, hand embroidery and beading
- Dipdye and ombre colour studio
I am passionate about giving a personal and reassuring experience to every bride who seeks a bespoke wedding dress. I pride myself on really listening to my clients. I love using my breadth of experience to distil even the unformed or wide ranging ideas you might bring into a design that is obviously exactly right. My work is about you and your taste and personality.
The process starts with a free design consultation, then a quote with sketches and samples for you to compare to other options. My prices start from £1800 + fabrics so compare very favourably to other high street designers, with the added value of being unique, perfectly fitting and all about you. A toile (practice run) and then a series of private fittings ensure the finished bespoke wedding dress is perfect for your special day.
I have worked with brides of all shapes and sizes. I know how to flatter and sculpt, enhancing your best features for confidence and security. I love working with mature brides who, having worn the styles of several decades, tend to draw on a wider inspiration base than others and know how to demand perfection!
My degree in costume design informs my approach to design. I draw on my wide knowledge of the history of fashion and construction techniques of many centuries. I love to create contemporary takes on historically inspired looks as well as couture level modern and alternative design.
I take in a limited number of alterations to off the peg or vintage dresses. I love taking something that isn’t quite right and making it perfect.
I am lucky that so many brides come to me who want colourful or embellished designs. I LOVE colour. I have sample books with thousands of traditional bridal fabrics, silks, chiffons, satin and lace as well as colourful alternatives. In 2016 I created a dipdye wedding dress called ‘Phoenix’ which went viral online. This has led to many commissions for fabulous looks from subtle pastel fades to full spectrum rainbows!

“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. The final product… simply breathtaking ” – Vicky Tyler
“I want to thank Felicity for making me the most wonderful wedding dress. It was very easy taking my ideas to Felicity who then designed and 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 it fitted beautifully” – Katie Darvall
“I hope you can see from these pictures that the dress was just beautiful. You were friendly and approachable and made the whole process a treat. I felt glamorous and romantic and yet comfortable and like myself in the dress, I couldn’t ask for anything more.” – Cristina Dineen
