When I first met with Deborah I had no idea what I wanted from a wedding dress and was pretty reluctant about the idea of trying on dress after dress in the same old bridal shops. Within minutes we got chatting about my style and taste and Deb started sketching away. She turned the sketch pad around and although it was just a rough idea she had totally nailed it. From there I looked forward to every fitting; she designed a dress that oozed vintage elegance with maximum versatility, prioritising style and comfort in equal measure - it was completely unique and ‘me’ down to a tee.
All within the affordable budget that we had set out at the start. I can’t recommend Deborah highly enough - I trusted her every decision and was in total awe of her skill; she is a true artist and professional. I now have her original design as a piece of artwork framed on my wall!
She also made my mum’s Mother-of-the-Bride outfit which looked out of this world

I was thrilled with my wedding dress. I'm not your average gal, but was made to feel very special for my big day, nothing was to much trouble and Deb really 'got me' which is rare. Have no hesitation in recommending this lady, we laughed, we cried... what more can I say xxx

Deborah, I can't even find the words! This dress you designed and made for me from scratch was my dream, I couldn't recommend you enough!
You are truly gifted, thank you for making me feel like I was in a 1950s romantic movie!
Everybody gasped as I walked in. Thank you!

We crossed paths purely by chance and in the first 5 mins i knew my wedding dress had to be created by Deborah Coates. Her passion, knowledge, experience and attention to detail is second to none. Bubbly personality shows in the client relationship so easily formed. 5 stars plus well deserved. My dress was more than perfect. Planning further outfits for Deborah to create, I wouldn't think now to work with another designer.

The beautiful shop front of Deborah Coates Bromsgrove. How over the moon I am that I came across this little gem! Fabulous woman, fabulous designer! And the most outstanding taste! So glad I found you and you've agreed to make my wedding dress!
— Naomi Couture Bride
Deborah Coates' style exudes elegant chic and I couldn't be more in love with this outfit!

Went to have my final fitting for my wedding dress today. 8 months ago I walked in with no clue about what I wanted. Deborah designed the perfect dress for me. Was treated like a princess, and felt like a princess!! Did not want to take my beautiful dress off. A wonderful experience from start to finish. If your looking for unique and bespoke Deborah's is perfect.

On Deborah's opening day we came across this lovely shop and was offering out free bubbly so went to have a look as you do, my mum said that dress in the window is lovely would suit you too, try it on, ( was getting married about 10 months later) so I tried this dress on and I didn't expect to feel or look the way it did, I don't like satin but this dress was gorgeous, we arranged for a fitting at a later date, i then decided that mum was right and it was my dress... after a couple of fittings to get the length and waist right we decided the top needed to change as I'm quite a tomboy so we changed it into a halter neck and lowered the back as far as we could and also made it an inch shorter at the front to have a band round my waist, the styling and alterations Deborah made where fantastic, I couldn't fault it. The cost of the dress is you get what you pay for, if you want quality then pay for it but when you get quality for a great price I was buzzing, I can't thank Deborah enough for all she did helping me find my perfect dress, will definitely be back to Deborah's soon as there was some cut off trousers and a body suit which I had my eye on!

From the 1st picture I brought in to the final result, I could not be happier and over the moon with my dress and experience with Deborah Coates. One of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The amount of comments i had on my dress on my son and daughter in laws wedding was amazing, everyone wanting to know where I got my amazing dress from. Thank you Deborah from the bottom of my heart, will see you in a couple of years for the next one.

Thank you for creating the perfect dress ! Five months ago I was in a dilemma ! My daughter was getting married and I didn't have a clue what to wear. A recommendation lead me to the door of Deborah Coates " the modern day fairy godmother" ! briefly described my fantasy dress and she created a 'couture' dress exactly as I had described it on the first day. Deborah is a fun, talented, creative whizz. My dress is amazing and fits like a glove and makes me look slender and elegant. I would recommend Deborah for that something special either 'couture' 'bespoke' or 'ready to wear'. A thousand thank you's to a lovely lady !

What a wonderful experience I had yesterday choosing my Mother of the Bride outfit with Deborah. She was so enthusiastic and supportive, and made every step of choosing and fitting each piece easy and fun. What a delight it will be to have an outfit so individual and special. Thank you Deborah!
— Juliet Bespoke Mother of the Bride
I didn’t want a traditional mother-of-the-groom outfit and when I met Deborah I knew I was in very capable hands. Together, mostly Deborah, our ideas became my beautiful outfit for my son’s wedding. Deborah is very enthusiastic and supportive and every fitting was a joy and such fun. The resulting dress is absolutely beautiful and, on the day, I felt I was in something very special, felt very comfortable and have never been paid so many compliments! Couldn’t be happier.

I even wore it to my best friends wedding and popped back to get a matching swing coat!!! Thank you so much Deb xxx

Deborah is a very talented designer, who has great taste and attention to detail. I feel, and have been complimented on looking, a million dollars each time I wear a Deborah Coates creation. Deborah's designs are unique, timeless and reasonably priced for the quality and service you receive, and I can't wait to get my hands on her spring/summer collection!
