After Elizabeth began after my own struggle to find a wedding dress and grew into a business where I get to help brides, from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes, create their dream dress.

I work with brides who struggle to find a unique wedding dress that fits perfectly and feels comfortable. I can help by offering a bespoke dressmaking service; creating perfectly fitting, beautifully designed gowns that make you feel like the most amazing version of yourself, so you can be confident, comfy and all together awesome on your wedding day!


I do this in a fun, friendly and all inclusive environment where all body types, shapes and sizes are catered for, where you can feel happy and at ease and enjoy the exciting experience of having a made to measure dress!

I have a small garden studio in Watlington, Oxfordshire where you can make an appointment to come and have a chat, try on some dresses and talk all things wedding!  I have made dresses for brides all over the UK and the world, so if you are not close enough to come and visit we can chat via email, WhatsApp or Zoom. I am able to offer a fully bespoke service, sending samples and sketches by post and conducting fittings remotely via Zoom.

I have a range of designs for you to view, so you can head on over to the DRESSES page for some inspiration or take a look at my REAL BRIDES section to see what I have designed for past brides. I have had the pleasure of working with some really awesome brides and if you would like to read some of the kind words they had to say about their experience then head on over to the REVIEWS.

If you would like any more information, advice or would just like to chat, pop me over an email at info@afterelizabeth.com

"Going shopping for gowns was always a big no for me and I found having something custom made was a much more enjoyable process! Lisa was so patient and her experience and creative eye were invaluable.

Her attention to detail is insane and she knew how to accentuate all my best bits and dress my shape perfectly. On the day I felt incredible! I can’t put into words how Lisa made me feel that day and I will forever be in awe of Lisa’s talent and ability to create masterpieces from thin air!"

"I came across Lisa's website when I was doing all my dress research and was really impressed. The dresses looked incredible and the service seemed so friendly and personal, which is just what I wanted. 

Working with Lisa was fabulous! She made my dream wedding dress come alive and made the process so enjoyable. 


I got married in the Caribbean and Lisa was really knowledgeable and realistic about what was possible with my ideas and budget, she really has great vision and creativity.


She was honest and practical and really understood the styles that would suit my figure. She is incredibly professional but also loads of fun and her work speaks for itself! Thank you so much Lisa!"

"I cannot recommend Lisa enough!

She helped me create my dream wedding dress inspired by a few of her designs and I felt completely involved in the process - helping to choose the lace, colours, bodice design, width of skirt etc. It ended up with me having a completely unique dress that I just wish I could wear again!!

A fantastic designer and dressmaker who I would recommend to every bride."
