Directory Wedding & Bridesmaid Dresses in Bay of Plenty
My name is Heidi and I absolutely love sewing things. Bridal is my passion but as long as I am making anything then I’m happy! I thrive on all the details that make up a couture gown, the intricate beading, luxurious fabrics and delicate laces. Making detailed and unique veils, accessories and headpieces to match gowns is also one of my passions.
I have worked in bridal in Sydney, Australia, for 5 years before moving back to New Zealand to continue my passion in my home country.
I love collaborating with brides to come up with their perfect gown and complementing accessories, so please contact me if you have an idea, with your thoughts and my skills we can make something beautiful!
I had the idea in my mind of what I wanted my prefect dress to look like, when I went to a studio and tried it on I was dissapointed that it looked horrendous. Luckily Heidi was there to save the day, she was able to create the dream dress I never knew I wanted (until I tried it on)! It was so stunning, completely covered in hand embroidered and beaded motifs. It fitted perfectly and I don’t think I’ve ever seen dresses fit as nicely or as slimming as the ones Heidi has made. Couldn’t fault any step of the process from start to finish. Was a delight to work with. Highly reccomend! Only wish I had another excuse for her to make me another gown

I would like to publicly thank Heidi for the amazing work she did on my sisters wedding dresses. She worked with each of them to come up with a design that was extremely flattering and suited their personalities. The end result was a stunning gown of the highest quality for each of my sisters. Heidi was a pleasure to work with, very professional but also a calming presence when somebody threatened to go bridezilla on us. If you are after top quality, true professionalism and a genuinely nice person then Adelhied is the dressmaker for you!!!

Adelhied made my sister’s dress and everything about her experience made my decision so easy. I had to have an Adelhied gown.
She listened to what I thought I wanted and dutifully helped me try on similar gowns. But I was so wrong in what I thought I wanted and it was painfully clear!
We then talked through how I wanted to feel on the day, what aspects of ‘the dress’ would make me feel my best, and if I were to go all out what would that look like. She then drew up a design of the most perfect dress.
I couldn’t have imagined it myself but it was completely me.
Fast forward 3 months to the wedding day and my dress fitted me perfectly. It was super comfortable, not heavy or restrictive, and made every curve pop! Heidi was amazing to deal with!
My Adelhied gown is a soft, blush pink ball gown made from English tulle and ivory organza. It has a sheer, gathered V-neck over a satin corset bodice and cathedral train. And the inside looked as good at the outside!
Adelhied gave me a dress to remember, it was worth every cent to have a custom gown made with such expertise and care.
I couldn’t recommend more highly!
