Lisa has an amazing ability to be able to translate ideas into a beautiful garment that not only looks amazing but feels it too – my dress fitted perfectly and I felt comfortable in it all day. She is clearly passionate about ensuring that the brides that she works with get to wear their perfect dress on their special day and her effort and commitment to delivering this for me was greatly appreciated.
Lisa was patient, positive, encouraging and incredibly skilled, all resulting in a dress that I felt amazing in on the day! Having my wedding dress made especially for me was definitely the best decision. I received so many compliments on the day – it was exactly what I wanted and I still love it!
Lisa made this experience every bit as special as I’d hoped, a bespoke dress made to fit like a glove. From the moment we started to make decisions on what style would suit me, she was encouraging, honest but most importantly listened to what I wanted, which in turn created trust. It never failed to amaze me the amount of work involved with creating this one dress, so much attention to detail - nothing is missed and it’s because of the amount of expertise and knowledge she has. I couldn’t recommend Lisa’s bridal service enough!
Lisa provided a perfect wedding dress for our beach wedding. She was with me every step of the way. From the beginning when I had no idea what I wanted, to helping me create my gorgeous dress. A truly professional service that I would happily recommend.
Choosing a wedding dress design, fabric and a designer to create it can be one of the most overwhelming tasks in life. After two careful interviews, I selected Lisa Lyons-Montgomery as my wedding dress designer. Initially we met for coffee in London. Lisa accommodated my schedule even though she lives in Harpenden. I liked her right from the start. She didn’t try to overrule my ideas. She wanted me to be happy, so she listened patiently and let me go on and on about the dress. Of course, I have no idea how to design a dress, much less sew all the important pieces together. But Lisa made me feel like I did have a knack for bespoke creations and allowed me to express my ideas. Initially we talked about colour and types of fabric. Lisa put a colour board together with enough options to assure me that I had chosen the right colour within the broader selection that was possible. She didn’t leave out a hue that I might find interesting. I knew what colour I wanted once I saw it on the board. A few weeks later, dressed in the calico copy with shears and pins in tow, Lisa cut and pinned the collar, the waist and the hem length until my perfect “dress to be” appeared magically. With a good friend we travelled to Harpenden 3 times before the final work of art was finished. Each visit, Lisa greeted us warmly into her home and studio. When I arrived at Lisa’s to bring my dress home, I knew it would always be a special dress and one I would remember creating for a very long time. Thank you Lisa for all your hard work. I can’t count the number of compliments I received. You’re truly an artist.
