The aim at Ruth Milliam Bridal Couture is not only to design and create an amazing bespoke dress but for you to experience a professional, creative and personal service that you will enjoy being part of.
Your wedding dress journey begins with your first design appointment with the designer herself Ruth Milliam, where you, your friends and family will be invited to our boutique to enjoy bubbles and cupcakes. You will have the chance to try different style of dresses on so you can go through exactly what you want and what suits your body shape.
Ruth will be with you every step of the way and will recommend and advice you on shapes, materials, beading, take down measurements and design notes.
Once you are happy with the design our specialist team of pattern cutters, seamstresses and bead work technicians can start making your dress.
Ruth creates one off couture designs for woman of all ages to inspire them on their dream wedding day. Her aim is to deliver a personal service, from first fit to final fit you will be involved every step of the way.
Once the design has been finalised, you will then have a further 2 to 3 fittings.
The first being a toile fitting, this will be the structural fitting of your gown.
We use the foundations of your chosen gown to precisely pin and fit it to your body, this fitting perfects the shape before the final fabrics are cut.
There is then one more fitting before the final check fitting, we do this as close to the wedding as possible, to ensure the dress is absolutely perfect ahead for your big day.
