Design Create Alter


We offer a professional in-house design, dressmaking and alteration service.

Although Love Couture is best known for creating astounding wedding gowns, we can actually make anything that can be cut and stitched. For every ocassion, prom dresses, mother of the bride and groom outfits, dresses for cruises or red carpet award ceremonies, even Strictly ComeDancing style outfits for dance competitions, we are here to help.
By having an outfit especially made for you, you know that you won’t be wearing the same as anyone else at your event and it will fit like a glove.
Wether you have an idea in your head or have a favourite designer with a new catwalk look or something in your wardrobe that inspires you, let us put it into reality for you.
You can either choose from our extensive collections of amazing fabrics or bring your own. Maybe you have collected some beautiful silks from around the world that you would like made into something special.
We can copy outfits that you have loved so much that you’ve worn out or take a look from a celebrity style.

We offer a professional alterations service in-house. A properly fitting garment instantly looks so much better. We are experts at altering clothes, whatever it is you need altering. From the simple, turning up of a trouser hem to more complicated evening dresses and wedding gowns, we are skilled in all styles and fabrics. No job is too big or too small.
We can work miracles on seemingly impossible tasks too, because we are used to making outfits from scratch, we can usually see a way around a problem. For example, a bridesmaids dress that is too small or a coat that is too short can have panels added to them so you never would need to know that they had been adjusted.
We use industrial machines where possible for quality and speed.

Alterations are charged a rate of £25 per hour.
