I can’t thank you enough for everything you did to create a one of a kind master piece. The dress was incredible and I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt on such a perfect, romantic day and the best day of my life.

You were kind, caring and understanding to my needs and the design turned out even more spectacular than I could have imagined. I was speechless when I saw the final design. My husband said it was the most beautiful dress he had ever seen and he was so impressed, he couldn’t stop looking at me!
My guests and people that saw photos afterwards were commenting on how incredibly stunning the dress was for the coming days and weeks after! You created the wow factor and a gown that perfectly complimented me and my style.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a huge part of my day. Your precision and eye to detail was amazing!

As someone who hates dressing up, hates being centre of attention and is stressfully fussy, wedding dress shopping was not a fun time for me. It wasn’t until I put on one of Bernadette’s dresses that I felt it was possible to find something that I could picture myself wearing. Even then, I told Bernadette I like the top of one dress, bottom of another dress and the material of a third, to which she replied ‘of course’!

You can’t possibly doubt her talent and knowledge, so I had complete confidence in her and valued her guidance. And she delivered! The dress was exactly what I had envisioned! It was of high quality, simple but elegant, unbelievably comfortable and did not interfere with dancing the night away! So very grateful to Bernadette and her team and can’t recommend more highly.

An amazing, personalised and fun experience from the moment I walked in. I actually went to a few other stores afterwards but I couldn’t get the dress i saw out of my mind. It’s because it was THE dress. Bernadette made it my dress and custom designed some parts as I wanted to perfect it in every way. It was a highlight going in to every appointment and I just loved watching it come together. The dress speaks for itself. I had so many people compliment the design and uniqueness. It’s truly a beautiful piece I can call my own.

Absolutely wonderful experience with Bernadette. Very personal and accommodating, even for the most difficult-indecisive clients – me 🙂 Bernadette made sure that I was 100% happy with the outcome. The dress was such an important part of the day for me and I am so happy that I went with Bernadette. I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Bernadette. Thank you so much!

My time spent with Bernadette and her gorgeous daughters was one of the best parts of my wedding preparations. My gown was sublime. It made me feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life, beautiful and confident. My mother also had a great experience, me being her only daughter, this was a once in a lifetime event for her, and she still sends messages of thanks and love to Bernadette and her team. So much love. Couldn’t recommend Bernadette’s work and service more highly.

I cant thank Bernadette enough for my dream wedding dress. Bernedette & Sasha were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire dress journey. Nothing was too hard for them and they were always so professional & kind. I highly recommend!!!!

It was truly the most wonderful experience having my wedding dress (and my mum’s wedding outfit) made by Bernadette. She has the hugest heart as well as being highly skilled at dress making. I showed Bernadette images of dresses I loved and she worked with my to bring it to life using her stunning fabric – I still gets comments to this day when people see photos of my dress.

I have been lucky enough to have ordered three, beautifully made custom gowns from Bernadette. Working with Bernadette and her lovely daughters to create such gorgeous pieces, has been delightful. Bernadette goes over and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction and will work continuously to create that perfect fit. I highly recommend Bernadette Pimenta Couture for your custom made gown.
