The Custom Lainee Hermsen Bespoke Bridal Experience

  • Select your gown or design from scratch.

    Lainee will help you choose the best shape, style and colour. Either choose one of her gowns and change some details, or have it completely designed from scratch.                                            
  • Customise your gown.

    Dream up your customisations for example change length, add sleeves or embellishments or even mix and match two gowns. Lainee will help you to create your dream wedding dress based on the shapes you try in her studio, or even just from a photo.
  • Made to measure.

    Lainee will take your specific measurements ensuring your dress fits perfectly, all alterations and fittings are included, and built in bra and boning etc means no hidden costs such as underwear.
