MADE TO ORDER BRIDES AND CUSTOMERS


 
A selection of my real brides wearing their Made to Order and Ready to Wear headpieces purchased via the Alison Mary Millinery ONLINE SHOP. Made to Order pieces can sometimes be adapted using a different decoration, incorporate a sentimental piece of jewellery or made in a different colour - please feel free to contact me to discuss. Alternately, I provide a BESPOKE SERVICE where I can create a hat or headpiece to your requirements.

JANE

VINTAGE DIAMANTE BROOCH WITH WIRED CRYSTAL BEADS

 

'When I saw Alison's hair vine I knew immediately that it was what I had been looking for to match my purple wedding dress and the earrings I had bought elsewhere on Etsy - so bespoke. I loved that it was made from a vintage brooch and it in fact matched the vintage bracelet I was going to wear that had been my Mother's. The colours were perfect - amethyst with iridescent clear beads that had sparkles of pink and yellow in them. I loved that it was fashioned with gold - my preferred metal (so many are silver)

Alison was delightful to deal with and shipped it at top speed to me as I'd only found it days before my wedding. It was just as pictured and met all my expectations and more. Many people commented on it during the day and it helped to complete my perfect outfit and day.

Truly Alison, you should make more of these - they are beautiful.'

'Fabulous hat and beautifully made!! Alison colour matched and made the hat at very, very short notice and kept me updated on its progress. The hat arrived packed beautifully in a very nice hat box in time for Royal Ascot. Wouldn't hesitate to have another made. Thank you x'

My hat came out beautiful, is light - weight and comfortable to wear. And accents my dress perfectly. I'm really excited to wear it! Thanks again Alison!'
