“Lizzie is quite simply amazing! She is friendly, patient and understanding as well as being incredibly talented! She worked too hard to make my vision come to life and designed me the most beautiful bespoke dress which was unlike anything I’d tried on. Lizzie cake to dress me on the morning of my wedding as well to make sure everything was perfect. Such an incredible service. The whole experience of seeing my ideas coming to life was really special.”

Sarah and James

“When I first met Lizzie I had no idea what I wanted and was so in girly I was scared of trying on and touching the dresses. Fast forward she helped guide me through everything, created a gorgeous dress that was perfect with some hidden “me”. My husband said the dress was absolutely beautiful and she had outdone herself. Lizzie is much more than a dressmaker, she becomes a friend and offers advice generally along the way (plus she tactfully helps guide the bridal party when you need it!) “

Together we designed Sarah the perfect dress for her wedding day to James in June. This gorgeous 1950’s inspired number has the most beautiful french lace applique on the bodice and the skirt was filled with layers of soft tulle.

Winning The Wedding Industry Award Regionals

We WON! we only went and won!

Every year since opening Elizabeth Malcolm we have entered The Wedding Industry Awards. These awards are basically the OSCARS of the wedding industry, set up to recognise excellent wedding suppliers. And if you are planning your wedding their website is a very useful tool to find very amazing suppliers too!

The reason that we only enter The Wedding Industry Awards is that they are the only regional and national client voted awards in the wedding industry, and above all the feedback we receive from our customers and judges is vital to us for keeping our standards at the highest possible level.

Every year we have entered the awards we have amazingly become a Regional Finalist. Last year however was slightly different. Last year we actually won the regional award and then went on to achieve the Highly Commended award at the Nationals. So this year I decided that we definitely needed to come back and defend our title!

We are just so ecstatic to have won the Regionals again and have been floating around in a bubble ever since. It is such an honour to be involved in every single one of our bride’s weddings and we are so thankful for them having taken their time to vote for us. The next stage is the London Regional Finals in January. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Posy

One of our showstoppers, full of romance and femininity. The fully corseted inner bodice creates an amazing shape, nipping in your waist and giving you support. The off-the-shoulder neckline is so romantic and the wonderful layers of the skirt are full of movement. Created from silk dupion, delicate French lace and silk chiffon, it is easy to see why this number is so romantic!


Bluebell

An elegant and beautifully soft fishtail silhouette. This gown has one of the most stunning french laces, cleverly cut out so that the pattern flows beautifully up the dress. The beauty of this dress is in the details; the lace, a delicate and simple satin sash and the lovely little covered buttons.

Zinnia

Sophisticated, elegant and a little bit sassy! This gorgeous bateau neckline is reminiscent of a bygone era with the plunging backline and statement front bow, bringing a contemporary edge. Created from an amazing faux silk dupion, this gown has a wonderful texture and is vegan-friendly.

Flora

Flora is figure-hugging and sassy. With its breathtakingly stunning illusion back and pearl button detail, this dress is one spectacular little number. Created from a gorgeous Georgette, it has a special weightiness to it but at the same time is light and easy to wear. The back lace appliqué is hand sewn on, which gives you the option of designing it yourself! You can add as much or as little lace as you like.

Bea

Bea is a gorgeous A-line gown. This classic shape is transformed by the most beautiful floral French lace jacket. The stunning feminine neckline and the ¾ length sleeves help to create this
gorgeous feminine shape. This dress also has our secret weapon hidden away inside, that fantastic shape defining corset.
