At Lesley Cutler, we create striking dresses with lasting charm and relevance. Built on our reputation of more than 23 years of quality design and dedicated attention to detail. We are the longest trading bridal wear business in Milton Keynes.


for me dressmaking is a passion

Lesley began her journey in wedding dress design by training for 4 years at the London College of Fashion. After graduating she begun to work for notable names such as Norman Hartnell, Jenny Packham and John Galliano CBE before moving forward to top quality tailoring companies such as Alexon, Planet and Windsmoor. Lesley has worked on the exclusive Bridal Range for one of Britain’s leading wedding dress designers, Ronald Joyce and the garments made for British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at Aquascutum amongst other notable names.

Lesley’s career really advanced when managing the workroom for Royal Wedding Dress designer Elizabeth Emanuel, who is best known for designing Princess Diana’s wedding dress. The opportunity to work with Elizabeth on these elaborate and imaginative creations was invaluable, giving Lesley an outstanding knowledge of cut, proportion and fit.


Lesley’s career began with Royal Dressmaker Norman Hartnell


Lesley’s lifetime passion for fashion design has inspired her to do the things she loves most as she now devotes her time to her own made-to-measure boutique Bridal wear studio.

Our passion is deeply rooted in helping women look and feel the best version of themselves on their special day. That’s why each dress that we create is a true labour of love and designed to be a piece of art in its own right. At Lesley Cutler, you can be sure that you will not only get the dress of your dreams but a dress that will be timeless and perfect for you.

  • The patience she has had has exceeded my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone and will miss our catch ups! The dress is exactly what I had visualised and Lesley has made that a reality. Thank you so much.

    Claire Surrey
  • A huge thank you to Lesley for making my dress, for listening and putting ideas into reality. It was a masterpiece and an honour to wear something so exquisitely made.

    Hannah Bedfordshire
  • My Mother of the Bride outfit is individually handmade, exclusively mine and there was no risk of meeting anyone wearing the same. I had so many compliments on the day and afterwards, I've lost count!

    Lindsey London
  • Just to let you know the dress was the star attraction at my wedding on Sunday. Everyone, even the men, commented on how fabulous it was. The ladies wanted to know where I bought it from. We had a fantastic day.

    Patricia Leicestershire
  • True to her word, she worked tirelessly on my wedding dress until it was perfect. She is a master of her craft and any bride, or other customers, can feel absolutely safe and happy in her capable hands.

  • It was lovely having a dress made knowing no one else could turn up in the same dress.

    Leonie Milton Keynes
