    About Joanna Bell

Bespoke Bridal Gowns and Evening Wear made in the New Forest.

Empathetically developed and uniquely executed with advice and the sensitivity of someone who has been part of the vibrant dress design industry for over 35 years. Over this time, I’ve created a diverse selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, groom’s waistcoats, mother-of-the-bride dresses, evening wear and outfits for other special occasions.

Creative, committed and hugely passionate about my craft, I work closely with each client from the very first sketch to final fitting to bring each beautiful and unique dress to life.
