The Karen Dornellie Artisan Collection is the centre of bridal excellence on the Isle of Wight.

With an extensive experience, great reputation and proven track record in the bridal industry, I will be on hand to help brides have a smooth journey to perfect wedding day. I can advise you on shape and styling and make your dream dress on the premises. With my design background and sewing experience including as a costume maker for film and theatre you know you will be in good hands.

A personal and unique service adapted to each and every bride. With close working relationships with other island wedding suppliers I can also help suggest the most reputable companies to assist you if I am unable to. For example Trousseau Love Story can help with steaming your dress if you are travelling to the island for your big day, dressing on the day and a service to collect and clean your gown to ensure you can preserve it forever.

I am available for alterations but this is dependant on my bespoke and couture work so please get in touch to discuss your requirements. I may be able to suggest one of the islands seamstresses to help you if I am not free.

I have my own design collection to view with a new system allowing all sizes to be able to try a sample. Each design however can be ordered in a choice of fabrics, finishes and embellishments dependant on your style, ideas and budget.

I also have a new concept for those who wish to make their own dress or know a great dressmaker who can. With patterns printed to your personal size plus access to thousands of fabric sample, you can truly create a unique design for yourself with no need for compromise.

If you are a bride with great taste and a definite idea of what you want for your wedding dress, please get in touch.

Alternatively, if you need help and are a bit unsure or nervous of dress shopping, lets have a chat to discuss how I can make this important part of your big day as easy and stress free as possible.

The Karen Dornellie Artisan Collection is a new concept coming soon.
