As the name suggests Bride Diva began as a bespoke bridal design studio some 20 years ago. It has grown from that to include a mix of antique, vintage and vintage inspired accessories for the bride, 'a lady' and a ladies home. 

As an all time lover of anything Victorian through to the 1940s I began to research my family tree and was fascinated to find many of my ancestors were dressmakers and tailors, which just fueled my passion for collecting antique clothing, sewing items and all manor of ladies accessories.

Now Bride Diva offers a range of 'one of a kind' bridal wear and dresses, together with genuine antique and vintage clothing, accessories and home wares.

If you are looking for something in particular please get in touch as I design and make dresses to order and also have vintage pieces not yet listed on my online Etsy shop.


I have been designing and making bridal gowns and special occasion wear for over 20 years and as expected am inspired by the fashions of days gone by when ladies wore beautiful grand silk dresses.


I have a passion for creating something a little bit different that you wouldn't find on the high street.

I love sewing and manipulating fabric into folds, pleats, flowers and detailing with anything that seems to work, whether that's beads, crystals, lace, embroidery, studs, flowers, silk painting or even cogs for steampunk outfits.


I'm always open to new ideas and love to experiment with different fabrics and detail.


I work from my home studio where my dresses and accessories can be viewed if desired.


I have a small collection of my designs, which are available to try on at my studio. Often I will have new designs to view, which aren't on my website as yet.

My in house designs range from £1000-£2850.00 for made to measure inclusive of all fabrics and fittings.
