Specialising in high-quality tailored gowns


What I do

Mary Louise Couture specialises in high-quality tailored gowns, working with quality materials, such as silk, French lace and beaded bridal fabrics.

I am also trained to create corsets and boned bodices, individually made for each person.  Mary Louise Couture will help you make the most of a special occasion.

I provide an alteration service for garments.  Brides like to buy a wedding dress and then come to me to carry out alterations.  These include altering the size or length of a dress to adding trimming, such as, decorative lace, beading, etc.

How I do it

My special commissions follow a 5-step Couture Process and they have included not only wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses, but also outfits for the mothers of the bride and groom.  My dressmaking commissions and services include:-

  • High-quality tailored gowns
  • Wedding dresses
  • Bridesmaids dresses
  • Mothers of bride/groom outfits
  • Jackets and dresses
  • Corsets and boned bodices
  • Complimenting accessories for the groom’s party, such as, waistcoats, cravats.
  • Alterations

Where I do it

Based in Harlow, Essex I create commissioned dresses for weddings and special occasions for clients from Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex and London.

I have posted some frequently asked questions to help you and some client testimonials of what my clients say about me.
