Bridal Wear & Bridesmaids


Anne Fontenoy designs hand sewn frocks and gowns from fine quality materials, especially silks and natural fibres, from a home studio.

She designs and makes wedding outfits from simple suits and short dresses, to bias cut dresses & elaborate silk bridal gowns, evening dresses and ball gowns, as well as dresses for bridesmaids, mother of the bride or groom, and the trousseau.

The designs, for which Anne hand drafts all the patterns, can be in contemporary or period styling and she specialises in creating unique embroidery, beadwork and handpainted designs to decorate the clothes.

All consultations are by appointment only when you can look through a collection of designs she has created of wedding and evening dresses, occasion daywear, handmade veils, bridal and evening bags, hand painted scarves and stoles. There are also photographic and sketch portfolios of her designs to browse through along with swatches of silks, laces, natural fibre and quality synthetic fabrics which Anne orders individually for each dress.

Dresses are hand sewn and made to order based around designs in the collection and portfolios. Anne can also create a completely unique dress with additional costs for the time required for her to make sketches and toiles.
