About Me

Giulietta is the real Italian name of Romeo’s Juliet.

  A tale synonymous with love.

Giulietta Bridal Alteration Studio was born from a lifelong love of ‘Brides’,

At 6 years old I was a bridesmaid and fell in love with the romance of it all. (well the dresses!)

The following Christmas I wished for and received a new doll clothed in a wedding dress and my destiny was set in motion.

 Years later, when Princess Diana came on the scene, I was beside myself with her wedding dress and subsequently all her gowns thereafter.

At 18 and studying tailoring, my first wedding dress was made, and I continued making them for the sheer joy of it. Even though I eventually forged a successful career in general ladies wear, both as a designer and pattern cutter of many well-known and respected high street stores.

So, after a great career in the clothing industry with the last 14 of them working as a freelance pattern cutter and bridal seamstress, I am now working ‘just for me’  my own business, my own studio. Keeping Brides part of my life!

My vision is for Giulietta to be a welcoming, comfortable luxurious bridal haven, adorned with beautiful ornate mirrors, a spacious plush dressing room within a relaxed environment where the whole bridal party can indulge in a first class and exclusive customer experience. 

During your appointment you will receive my full attention and a dedicated customer experience, providing honest, expert advice to ensure what is the one of the most wonderful events in life to be as pleasurable as possible.  

Wedding planning and preparation should not be a stressful -cursor to your big day and your fitting will be undertaken by an expert, dedicated seamstress who will work with you to answer any queries, ready for that big day.

Your party deserves to feel cocooned in their own private appointment whilst having dresses expertly fitted and sewn to a couture standard.

It does not matter where or when your gown was purchased, Sale dress or perhaps it’s vintage, worn by generations, what matters is the onward journey to your wedding day.

The ‘only’ requirement is to book in a consultation/fitting as soon as possible. Ideally 10 weeks before the wedding date.


I look forward to meeting you. x
