Sassi Holford

Bespoke wedding gowns, evening dresses and occasion wear, designed and handmade in Somerset by one of the UK's leading bridal wear designer

Sassi Holford has been making exquisite bespoke wedding gowns in Somerset since 1981. Feminine and innovative (she once designed a wedding jumpsuit), timeless yet modern, and always echoing the bride’s own style.

Each dress has an integral corset creating the streamlined and comfortable Sassi Holford trademark cut and fit, is handmade in her Somerset studio by her team of seamstresses, cutters and hand beaders – and sold all over the world.

The winner of many awards, Sassi was most recently named British Bridalwear Designer of the Year in The Bridal Buyer Awards 2018. Royal watchers may be interested to know that she made the wedding dress for Autumn Philips, when she married the Queen’s grandson in 2008.

Not getting married? Sassi also makes stunning evening and occasion wear. Stars in Sassi include Alexa Davies at the premier of Mamma Mia 2, Denise van Outen on the Dancing on Ice tour and Deborah Meaden on Dragon’s Den. A lifestyle collection is in the pipeline.

See her collection, including 2019’s nature and romance inspired Enchanted Collection, online, and in her shops in Taunton and Kensington.
