When it comes to wedding dresses there has been lots of chat recently about black being the new white? So I’m completely on topic when I say that I am in love with this black dress designed by Eleanor Ofori.
I met Eleanor at the National Wedding Show. She makes beautiful bespoke wedding dresses and I was instantly drawn to her lovely designs. Clearly a very talented (and also lovely to chat to) lady. Given the huge number of glowing testimonials I’ve read its clearly a dream working with her to create your perfect wedding dress.
Eleanor designs not only the wedding dress but accessories, veils and everything for the bridal party from dresses for the bridesmaids and flower girls to matching ties for the Groom, or the ushers.
She has 3 different wedding dress services to suit different needs and budgets.
1. Made to measure Silk collection – sold at selected stockists (listed on her site) with prices starting from £1550.00
2. Bespoke service where she meets with clients to discuss style ideas for their wedding dress. From here sketches are made along with a selection of possible fabric beading ideas. A toile will be made of the selected style, and only once all style lines have been agreed will the dress be made in the chosen fabric. Prices start from £1750.
3. Mobile Bespoke service – this is a new service with appointments being made in the clients home or place of work (ooh I like the sound of that one!). Selected samples of wedding gowns, accessories are taken along with fabrics swatches and any other items requested by the clients. Prices start from £2,000.

“Eleanor designed my beautiful wedding dress and I will eternally be grateful. I was impressed with her fantastic advice and guidance. Eleanor was really patient, and designed the wedding dress to suit everything
about me – my figure, my personality, the church we were getting married in etc
The final result was spectacular, and I was so pleased. I would unreservedly recommend Eleanor Ofori!”
