The winners will be notified by telephone to collect their prizes.

There is an optional donation of £1 per person for Tunbridge Wells Mental Health Resource Ltd (MHR). (This is the Mayor’s Charity).

All correct entries will be entered into a prize draw to win other prizes donated by High Street retailers.

Co-ordinator for the High Street, Jo Wicker of Payne & Son Jewellers says: “We want to celebrate the occasion of Easter with a fun activity for families. The response has been wonderful from retailers to get involved. Within minutes of sending out the email invitation to take part we had a flurry of responses and support for the initiative.
We have 16 retailers/businesses pledging prizes and offering to ‘host’ the Easter themed eggs in their windows. Some will be fairly easy to spot but others may take a little longer to find.
We challenge the residents of Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas to make a trip to the High Street during the three weeks running up to Easter to join in the fun and see what we have to offer.”

Read our testimonials to see what our beautiful brides thought of us.


During your initial appointment, you will try on a selection of beautiful silk gowns to find the shape that makes the very most of your figure. Many feature hidden corsetry that can make you look a size smaller. Judy has always designed with classic understatement using the best quality fabrics available, beautiful silks from all over the world and exquisite French lace.

As each dress is made for the individual bride, different elements can be selected to create a gown that is unique to you. Judy will produce sketches so you can imagine how the dress might look and also suggest which silks will best suit the design.

The attention to detail from the moment a dress is commissioned results in a perfect gown every time. Once you have selected the design the fun really starts. Judy will take your measurements and your individual pattern will be made. The toile is then fitted. This is a mock up of your dress in cotton. Sometimes a second toile will be required to ensure the fit is perfect. Only when the bride is happy will Joanna start to make your dress.

Two more fittings will follow in silk with the final fitting proving there is no substitute for a dress that is made-to-measure. You will look forward to your day with confidence, knowing you will look your very best.

A bespoke gown can take up to six months to complete and requires at least three fittings, although Judy has never been known to turn away a bride without a frock.

Bespoke wedding dresses from £1800. Samples bought off the peg from £500.
