FAQ

I often get asked similar queries so I have added my most frequently asked questions below.  Should you have any other questions please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.

Ideally a minimum of 4/6 weeks is needed to make a perfect head piece but the more time the better helps me. However if you don’t have this long please enquire and I will do my best to help. I haven’t let anyone down yet!

Yes please and bring any accessories if you have them.

There is always a hat for you.  Come and try some on; you will be pleasantly surprised.

I would be delighted to share my expertise and help you enjoy the experience.

My aim is to make you feel special.  I will make sure your hat fits correctly and it co-ordinates with your outfit leaving you feeling confident.

Until I see it I can’t say but 9 times out of 10 I can.

No, I’m afraid not but I do have some discounted head-wear.

Yes I will take your head measurement or I can adjust an existing hat.

It will, even on those windy days and I can put a comb on a hair band for the Saucers which will really make it secure.

Appointments only please as you have an exclusive one to one consultation.

The more the merrier – I had 5 ladies visit from America who all needed headpieces in 2 weeks.  I made 2 from scratch and tweaked the other 3 which I had in stock. I finished the hats on time enabling them to practise wearing them.

Traditionally on the right but I can make it to be worn on either side.

If you are the Mother of the Bride everyone follows your example and takes it off when you do. I find ladies like to keep it on for as long as possible and dance the night away wearing them.

I have a selection of sizes to accommodate your hat.

I can advise you on a choice of hat which won’t cause this problem. You might like to look at my photowall on my website to see my hats being worn.

I would be delighted to and if you have any particular designs you like bring them along and we can chat it through.  It’s worth remembering that I can incorporate lace, beads and sparkle if needed.

Try everything on well in advance as it is surprising how long it takes getting the right underwear, jewellery, tights, handbag and other essentials sorted. Time will be very short before the wedding and something always comes up which isn’t planned for – it’s nice to have a glass of bubbles beforehand and relax with the Bride or Groom.

With most designs I will invite you back for a fitting to ensure the headpiece/hat sits correctly, suits your face and to make any adjustments needed before completion.

Fascinator, Headpieces and Bridal start from £70.

Brimmed Hats and Large Saucers start from £280

Your hat can be posted for next day signed morning delivery or a day convenient for you. The cost is £15 – £20 approximately.

Yes telephone consultations work really well. Style and colours can be chosen and if you need a colour match you can send your outfit or swatches via a signed delivery service and it will be posted back along with your hat.

I don’t have the facility for credit cards but take Bank transfers (BACS), cheque or cash.

Yes I am known for ensuring the colour and hat looks great with whatever outfit you choose to wear.

Please ring – I love a challenge and I am sure I will be able to help you.
