I hope that the gothic, victorian, steampunk & Alice in Wonderland wedding gowns & wedding photos from our bridal clients featured on this page will inspire you!

We are inspired by the magnificent ornamentation of the baroque period with it's swirling rococo scroll work and our lead corset gown designer, Annette Magus is definitely still inspired by her favourite silhouettes from both the Victorian and Tudor periods.

Now that we've unleashed our Alice in Wonderland obsession onto custom designed fabrics we are also creating a lot of crazy, fun and whimsical corset gowns and bustle sets that work beautifully with these silhouettes from bygone eras.

Ivory victorian-steampunk wedding gown style 'Victorian Corset Bridal Gown'

Melissa and David Norton created a full on steampunk wedding but Melissa wanted to keep a soft romantic ivory in her victorian corseted wedding gown to differentiate herself as the bride.

We made her a Victorian Corset Bridal Gown. This worked beautifully!

  • Keep ivory as your wedding dress colour but add in steampunk elements

Here is a heartfelt testimonial from a bridal client who ordered this design from us

She'd been let down by a bridal gown maker & turned to us for her dream gothic victorian bridal ensemble

"Just wanted to let you know that my ensemble arrived and I am so happy with it!! It is absolutely beautiful and fits perfect, it was meant to be :)

Thank you so much for making and sending it to me by the deadline I provided, I cannot thank you enough!

It's a lot to write, but I had purchased another outfit on etsy five months ago which still hasn't been made or sent and I have been really upset and stressed out, so I decided I'd go local with a place I trusted and you guys were my first choice.

I already have some lovely pieces from you. I just needed the reassurance of having my dress asap as I needed to know that it would fit and I could be happy, you guys have been amazing, thank you so much!!" Sandra B.
