I went to Tara for a bespoke bridal gown and the result was absolutely stunning. She took my idea and turned it into a beautiful satin gown that fitted me perfectly and was everything I envisioned. The design process was amazing as we were able to work each section of the gown to perfection. Tara was super friendly and very knowledgable to help me choose everything down to the right fabric!!
'I came to Tara as I needed a silk gown that could be warn under a totally see through Edwardian lace dress, but that could be warn as a stand alone gown in the evening. I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted but Tara designed the most exquisite gown that surpassed all my hopes and expectations. She was incredibly kind and supportive throughout the many fittings and was a genuine delight to be around. I can't recommend her highly enough'. BRIDE Kat.R
"It's hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for Tara. She created the most beautiful gown I could have hoped to wear from a simple drawing and my ramblings. Not many people appreciated my vision and as soon as I mentioned I wanted a black and white dress they thought I was a little crazy but Tara understood my vision and took it to a whole new level. I felt like she understood my personality and put it so expertly into a dress.
It was a dream to see her at work and whenever I visited the studio she was so welcoming and I couldn’t wait to see her and my dress again. Through every stage she made me feel involved and would make sure I was up to date with how things were progressing, which was such a blessing as I was a rather nervous bride!
The day I finally got to wear my dress was made even more special knowing that Tara had put such passion and love into making it. I felt amazing in my dress and had so many compliments during the day and even now when I show people photos of the day.
I can’t recommend Tara enough and wish her every success in the future. I know she will make many other women feel just as special as I did (which is such a rare and wonderful thing!)."
I first met Tara at the Salisbury City hall wedding fayre back in 2015 when I was newly engaged, and had no idea of what I wanted to wear as wedding attire.
My husband and I set a date for the wedding for June 2017, and despite going round to many a wedding dress shop in those 2 years, and trying on several dresses, I knew that what I had seen of Tara’s work, the designs she had and the fabrics she used were really something special and unique.
Nothing I tried on matched the way her dresses made me feel. The fabric, style, cut, design and those unique touches really did make Tara’s collection a cut above what was out there.
I also really enjoyed the experience of visiting Tara’s creative space, discussing ideas, fabrics, cuts, additions, amendments, and latterly perfecting my dress to my style and fit.She was open and honest about what would and wouldn’t work, and nothing was too much for her.
I ended up not just getting my dress, but headpiece and matching belt from Tara’s wonderful collection, which she presented to me in the most gorgeously packed boxes. In fact I have still hold them in the same boxes to this day, within reach, so I can marvel at their wonder on a regular basis!
Still 4 years on I have no regrets about having Tara create my wedding attire, she really is a creative, skilled, unique and lovely person.
Thank you so much for everything xxx BRIDE Victoria.C
