About Wendy Harrup - Vintage Costume

Exquisite wedding dresses or faithfully created period costumes...made to measure...made for you...

From alternative wedding dresses to period costumes; for special days or the stage and screen, there are few challenges which I have not already tailored my way around.

With years of experience and a passion for 'anything but ordinary', I love nothing more than seeing the delighted look in my customers’ eyes as they see their imagination come to life:

♦ Alternative wedding dresses
♦ Bridesmaids' dresses
♦ Stylish waistcoats & accessories
♦ Costumes for stage & screen
♦ Historical & period costumes
♦ Traditional outfits
♦ Special occasions

Stage & Screen
Great performances are supported by amazing costumes...

A truly memorable theatrical experience needs to be believable, so why trust anything other than my track record of creativity and reliability displayed across some of the finest stages in the country. My credits include: Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Royal Shakespeare Company, Salisbury Playhouse, Pitlochery Festival Theatre, Cunard’s QM2 and many more.

Working as a freelance costumier from my North London workshop, I am happy to create individual costumes, take on time sensitive jobs or manage your entire wardrobe. I am flexible and reliable and can travel all around the London area for meetings and fittings.

I have many years’ experience and expertise in both period and modern costume cut and construction. The diverse range of skills and experience that I bring to any project include:

  • Initial design consultation (if required)
  • Cutting material
  • Making costumes
  • Altering and adapting
  • Fitting costumes, maintenance and dressing
  • Hand embroidery and appliqué
  • Tambour beading
  • Bobbin and needle lace making

Weddings & Occasions
Putting the perfect look, fit and feel into your perfect day...

Whatever your dream, whether held close to your heart since childhood or born out of your passion for style and to do things your way, it is your day and you deserve perfection. Your memories of that day should be happy ones that last a lifetime; and by looking just the way you always imagined you would, it will surely make that dream come true.

There really are no bounds to what can be created to make your day really special. I have fitted brides out like pirates, presented Elizabeth to Mr Darcy, sent happy couples back to Edwardian times and added elegance and style to modern day princesses...

Where would you like to go, or who would you like to be?

  • Wedding dresses

Embroidery & lace
A little elegant surface design can truly enhance the final appearance of that extra special outfit...

An experienced and accomplished embroiderer and lace maker, I have a qualification from the Royal School of Needlework in the creation of Jacobean crewel work, silk shading, canvas work and gold work.

I use these skills both to embellish the outfits I make and to create accessories to enhance your special day.
