Martin Dobson Couture: designer and creator of stunning couture bridal gowns.

We came across Martin's exquisite designs back in December and fell in love with the intricate beadwork, floral embroidery and hand crafted detail - distinctive traits of each elegantly embellished gown.

Locally based, Martin recently relocated from his work as a designer in London, to set up a Studio in Suffolk in bridal couture. Now, Martin offers a bespoke bridal service specialising in creating one off, unique wedding dresses.

We met up with Martin to find out more about his motivation, his passion and inspiration behind these unique creations.

Martin: can you tell us about the inspiration behind your dresses?

The inspiration for my dresses is taken from nature, such as flowers and leaves in the country side here in Suffolk. I also try to incorporate a butterfly somewhere on my dresses if possible!

What led you to bridal design?

I started Martin Dobson Couture to create a product that would celebrate and enhance the female form, by creating exquisitely designed bespoke wedding dresses for that special day. I want to give each bride a personal designer experience - without the massive price tag.

Why Suffolk?

I thought Suffolk would be the best place to get my inspiration with all the lovely countryside around - also I thought there was a niche in the market for a Couture Wedding Dress Designer.

Can you give us an insight into to the process?

The process begins when the bride has her preliminary consultation.I will discuss the bride's initial ideas. Next, I will discuss fabrics and embroidery, before producing mood boards.

Once fabrics etc have been selected, I will create a selection of unique designs. When a final design has been selected and finalised, fittings and toils for the dress will be put into work before the final dress is completed.
