About Lisa H Design

You will not get an off the rack gown from Lisa H Design, instead together we will make your dream gown come to life. I love working with real women, with real bodies, creating a gown that suits and flatters your body, no matter what shape or size.

I contacted Lisa after I had no luck with dresses off the rack.
Lisa has this amazing ability to take your ideas (I had many!) and pull them together cohesively…. I had quite a few ideas in mind but no vision for the final dress and Lisa created this for me.
For someone who didn’t really know what I wanted, Lisa was SO patient with me and guided me through the whole process. I remember right at the beginning she said “You are involved in every step of the process, so it will really feel like YOUR dress at the end” and it DID.
Lisa keeps updated with new fabrics/lace and my dress actually ended up being made with a brand new lace which was so new she hadn’t even worked with it yet.
Not only did Lisa craft my beautiful wedding dress, but she also made my mum’s MOTB outfit and 4x stunning bridesmaid skirts.
I also have to mention the lovely, relaxed environment that is Lisa’s studio. Each appointment is private (you have her complete attention / no other customers present) and of course you can bring family/friends. Parking is no problems either. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Lisa created my dream dress for my wedding in October. Right from the get go she was amazing with communication and we worked together with my vision on what I wanted. I took pictures of what I liked and what I had tried on in shops, and we went from there, with me deciding on everything right to the little details like what buttons! I ended up having the lace on my dress hand dyed as I had come across some pink fabric in a store but there was none left in NZ or Australia! Luckily Lisa had the connections to get the lace dyed and matched to the colour I had seen. We had many fittings which was really awesome to be involved in the whole process, Lisa will really work with you and make sure that you are feeling absolutely beautiful on the day - which is what I did! I had SO many compliments about my dress and I felt like a million bucks (even more)!!! SO thank you Lisa, you are amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!!

I am originally from Auckland but moved to Wellington for work but attended the Grand Wedding Show in Auckland which is where I saw Lisa and a few of her designs.
After trying on a few dresses at other retailers where I wasn’t 100% happy with the dress or the price, I gave Lisa an email. From the moment I met her she was always full of ideas and enthusiasm! She was happy to add her thoughts in but ultimately provided me what I wanted. I was soooo happy with the dress!! Exactly what I had in my mind to the last detail. She worked around me only coming up to Auckland every so often and with my changing body shape with competing in fitness competitions.

Highly recommend!! Great personality! Great dress and price!

Lisa is AMAZING!!! After months of trying on dresses from a variety of bridal stores and almost giving up, a friend of mine recommended Lisa to me, so I figured I would check her out. 8-9 months down the track, I ended up with the most amazing lace wedding dress thanks to Lisa.

My dress was perfect and from the beginning to the end she treated me like a princess!! I am a very indecisive person so you could only imagine how frustrating it would’ve been working with me lol. BUT Lisa was able to work her way around what I wanted in a wedding dress. Not only that, she was also able to work around my budget.

I highly recommend Lisa as your bridal designer because she has an amazing eye for detail, great listening skills and superb vision for the perfect dress. She is such a lovely, kind and understanding woman-I am so glad to have come across such an amazing designer smile I couldn’t be happier on my special day.

Lisa was recommended to me by a friend of mine who had her wedding gown made by Lisa.
I felt comfortable with Lisa from our first meeting.  So comfortable in fact that she kindly made my wedding gown, two bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dress and my husband’s waistcoat!  As you can imagine we had many meetings and fittings with Lisa before our amazing wedding day and we all enjoyed spending time with her and had a lot of laughs along the way.  Lisa listened to my ideas and offered her opinion in a professional way.  Together we created a beautiful wedding gown and bridal party dresses.
Lisa was flexible with fitting times and the majority of the time we went for our fittings during the evening and on the weekend.
I thought after wearing my wedding gown for over 12 hours I would be tired of wearing it and thought I would be constantly adjusting it – this wasn’t the case at all.  It fit perfectly and I felt amazing wearing it on my wedding day.  I still get comments that my gown suited me perfectly.
Lisa is a lovely person with a great sense of humour, I miss our chats!
Thank you Lisa for being part of our special day.

Words cannot express how grateful I am for Lisa and her amazing work!

Lisa made me a gown that far exceeded my expectations and was absolutely stunning. I can honestly say I have never felt was beautiful as I did on my wedding day and a large part of this is down to Lisa.

Lisa was relaxed and friendly throughout the process. While the dress was not finished until the week of my wedding there was no need to stress as Lisa had it in hand.

I would without a doubt recommend Lisa to anyone that wants to feel amazing on their wedding day.

Lisa is so friendly and flexible to work with.  Her talent is incredible.  I just gave her a photo of the dress I wanted.  I could choose my fabric and make any changes desired, minor or major.  She can do it and it turned out better than the photo.  I’m so excited about my dress, it’s absolute perfection!  Could not be happier with it.  The workmanship is stunning and every detail is attended to, including rearranging lace patterns by hand!  Yet, it works out cheaper and buying from a bridal boutique, and it’s unique to each bridal.  What more could you ask for!

I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough. She is so wonderful to work with and her attention to detail is outstanding. Lisa worked off a picture I found, for both the bride and the bridesmaid dresses (and also the mother of the bride), nothing is too much for her as she also made a matching fascinator head piece for my Mum’s outfit, fur wraps for us and organised the ties for the boys, to be made out of the bridesmaid fabric.
And the wedding dress was absolutely beautiful and I had so many comments on the day, beginning from the minute I put it on, right to the end of dancing at midnight. I will always remember the gasps and sighs from our guests as I appeared at the church door and walked down the aisle, and then more gasps as our guests saw the back of the dress too!
Lisa also organised fittings around us, as we live in Hawke’s Bay. It was such a treat getting our dresses made to fit and not having to worry about dress sizes at all - it fit beautifully.
Thank you so much Lisa - I would wholeheartedly recommend you and I know my sister and Mum would also.
We had a magical day and the dress was so perfect, thanks to Lisa.

Lisa is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with. I was referred by a friend who Lisa had helped at the last minute when her dress had fallen through. She did an amazing job on my friends dress and another amazing job on mine. I took a photo of what I wanted to Lisa and from there she designed the most beautiful masterpiece. I had quite a few fittings and I felt comfortable at all of them and could discuss any ideas I had during the entire process. The final product was breathtaking and I felt amazing on my big day. Guests loved the dress too and I had so many comments on how gorgeous it was. I really recommend Lisa to any bride who doesn’t want to worry about their dress and as someone who is approachable and great at what she does.

I met Lisa at the Grand Wedding show last year just after getting engaged. I had an idea of the dress I wanted but could not find anything in the shops like it. Lisa had made a dress similar to what I wanted, so went to her with my ideas and she instanly understood exactly what I wanted.

It was so easy and stress free and I trusted her completely. Lisa bought my dreams to reality and made me the most beautiful dress, better than I ever imagined!

She is an incredible seamstress and the way she works with the fabrics to get them sitting perfectly, is amazing.

Even the calico fitting was beautiful!!!

Lisa is truly talented and a lovely person to work with! I would recommend her to anyone!

Lisa is wonderful, I feel like I am repeating what has been said in other reviews, but it’s all absolutely true.
Lisa really goes the extra mile with great suggestions and ideas and her craftsmanship is fantastic, even doing hand beading (she will probably kill me for mentioning that!).
It’s quite a leap of faith having a gown made as you have to trust that your vision will be realised and Lisa is totally deserving of that trust, she is cheerful, knowledgeable and makes the whole process a delightful one.

I considered a few dressmakers and sent an email out to three to quote from the same picture (of which is wanted various things different). Of the quotes Lisa was the only one that I felt understood what I wanted and I felt comfortable with. She is amazing and it is an honour to have someone make your dress that is so professional but so passionate about what she does.

From our first meeting to discuss the design, material etc, I knew I had made the best decision. I felt completely at ease & knew that at each step we were on the same page. Lisa was an absolute LEGEND!

I would highly recommend Lisa to any brides to be, she goes above and beyond and that bit further. I still look at my dress most weeks (I have gone from days to weeks!) It is just perfect and exactly what we designed. You will not regret having your dress made by Lisa as it such a special and personal thing, no dress “off the rack” could ever have quite the same feeling.

I was looking for my dream wedding dress for a while, but there was nothing around that I would actually like.  I knew what I wanted, but I could’t find it! I heard about Lisa from a friend, and after looking at her website I decided to give it a go.  I live nearby so that was a real bonus:)
I came to Lisa with a picture in my hand - picture of my dream wedding dress that I had drawn myself.  And she made that dream come true! She created an absolutely stunning dress, with every detail exactly the way I wanted! Her craftsmanship is amazing. I felt like million dollars wearing the dress on my wedding day, it was perfect!
Lisa is also such a lovely person, I loved going for my fittings and having a chat with her.
I would recommend Lisa to everyone!

We went to Lisa with the hardest of tasks.. a full bridal party in Medieval Dress!!

Lisa is not just a lovely person, she was amazing with her ideas, and her skills as a bridal dressmaker. 

We ended up with the most wonderful looking bridal party and I was in love with my medieval princess dress.  We had so many comments about how fantastic we all looked and that was all thanks to Lisa!

You won’t be disappointed with the extremely hard work Lisa puts into your big day, and the care she takes with you as a valued customer!

I went to see Lisa after I had tried on a couple of dresses off the rack….I am really short and they were never going to look right.  Lisa really listened to what I wanted out of a dress, made some fantastic suggestions and then created the most amazing dress for me.    Lisa is a perfectionist and every little detail was covered.  My dress was perfect and from the beginning to the end she treated me like a princess!!

Lisa has an amazing eye for detail, great listening skills and superb vision for the perfect dress.  I couldn’t be happier on my special day.
