I had loved the 'mother of the bride' outfit Melanie had made for a friend of mine so when it
came to my youngest son's wedding, I had no hesitation in getting in touch with her. The whole
experience with Melanie could not have been better. From helping me to find the perfect material
to the design and production of my outfit Melanie was both sympathetic to my likes and dislikes
but also came up with brilliant ideas and suggestions making me feel completely at ease and
confident that the end result would be a success. Nothing was too much trouble for her even when
at the last minute a final alteration had to be made, it was done quickly and without any fuss.
The final result was perfect and going by all the compliments I received on the day and every time
I have worn it since I am not the only one who thinks so! Melanie made another outfit for me at
the end of last year and again It was gorgeous. I have also passed her name on to several of my
friends and they are all equally as pleased. I could not recommend Melanie more highly - she is

Melanie made my wedding dress and four bridesmaid's dresses from scratch. We chose the materials
together. She helped direct the design. She created the most beautiful dresses with great skill
and care. The bridesmaids genuinely said they were the nicest bridesmaids dresses they had ever
seen. I agree with them: they were elegant and beautiful. All my fittings with Melanie were an
absolute pleasure. She was very flexible about timing. She worked tirelessly on my dress and made
it so beautiful. She really knows what she is doing and has a real eye to make the most flattering
dress for any body shape. An absolute pleasure of an experience and great value.

Melanie recently made a bridesmaid's dress for me which was a gorgeous design and beautifully made.
Having just had a baby my figure was changing a lot but it fit me brilliantly and was flattering,
too. Thank you Melanie for a lovely dress and a lovely experience!

My dream wedding dress was created by Melanie Baker. She is a true artist with flare and inspiration and
certainly gave me the confidence too feel womanly and beautiful in my design of dress but in her creation.
I certainly would recommend Melanie to anyone who wishes to have a unique creation with an extremely
professional and personal service.

As Mother of the Bride I felt under pressure to look 'special'. Melanie recognised this, took me under
her wing and guided me through my first 'bespoke' experience. She listened to what I wanted and drew
up some sketches with ideas. Together we went shopping and she helped me make decisions on pattern
and colour and fabric. Her experience and understanding of what I was trying to achieve with my outfit
was wonderful. She created a beautifully designed, elegant summer coat and dress which fitted me
perfectly. I felt like a million dollars on the day and have never had so many compliments. Thank you
Melanie you helped me and gave me confidence and I can't thank you enough. I would recommend her

I was recommended to use Melanie to make my dress for my son's wedding. I was not disappointed!
From our first meeting right up until I picked the dress up, I found her to be totally professional,
but at the same time very friendly and fun. She listened carefully to my requirements and designed
my dress exactly as I wanted. She was also extremely helpful with advice on the fabrics. I felt a
million dollars at the wedding and have only Melanie to thank for that. I can thoroughly recommend
her to anyone!
