Welcome to the O’Hanlon Bridal website. Based in Dorking, we serve as the Surrey area’s go-to bespoke wedding dress designer. The wedding gowns we make are each one-of-a-kind and precisely sculpted to a bride’s figure and personal taste. We also make dresses for the mother-of-the-bride, bridesmaids and anyone else who might be attending the big day.
Visiting a bridal shop can often feel impersonal. Browsing wedding gowns that have been worn by countless other brides across Surrey, you might feel that none of them qualify as “the one”. When you choose to have a bespoke wedding dress made by an experienced wedding dress designer like O’Hanlon Bridal, you have complete control over how it will look. Our job is to work with you to design your dream dress, then ensure that it’s executed flawlessly.
Consultations are by appointment only. During a consultation, Tracey will get an idea of what the client is looking for, taking into consideration their budget, figure shape and likes and dislikes. An initial sketch will then be drawn up.
Following your consultation, a quote will be sent to you via email. After accepting the quote, you will be required to pay a deposit to confirm your order. The studio requires 4 to 8 weeks to produce your unique, hand crafted gown.
A date will be set up for your first fitting, which will be a mock fitting made up in calico. This is to ensure a perfect fit before our dress maker cuts the real thing. Depending on the complexity of the gown being made, 3 to 4 fittings are usually needed, the final fitting taking place at least 10 days before the function. This makes our fitting process altogether more thorough and precise than those found at traditional bridal shops around Surrey.
O’Hanlon Bridal founder Tracey O’Hanlon is a qualified couture designer and dress maker with over 30 years’ experience working within the Surrey bridal industry. Every client receives a one on one consultation, where they can share ideas for stunning and unique wedding gowns. With Tracey’s help and experience in design, you can start your journey towards creating the bespoke wedding dress of your dreams.
O'Hanlon Bridal runs a home studio in Dorking, Surrey. This enables us to offer a more personal service from start to finish. Please note this is by appointment only. Feel free to email us any questions or requirements and we will come straight back to you. Alternatively, call Tracey O'Hanlon on 07511 079 441.
I must say my experience was just wonderful. So much so that I felt that Tracey had become a friend by the time my dress was ready! Her finishing touch of giving me a bottle of Sparkling Wine when I collected the dress a few days before my wedding, was very touching! The helpfulness, friendliness and professionalism I received from the moment I walked into O’Hanlon Bridal was out of the top ranks, excellent! Being a difficult bride, the patience practiced from the staff and Tracey O’Hanlon was highly appreciated. They are a team out of a million. Planning a wedding is a stressful experience but Tracey and her wonderful staff made it so much easier for me.
Just wonderful! Everything you could ever wish for that special day!
I recently ordered my wedding dress from O’Hanlon Bridal and was very impressed with the friendly service and the good advice that I have received. They were far better than the other places I visited when looking for a dress.
I had my wedding dress made by them and it was amazing. The service is great and what I asked for was what I got, with some of there input to change the dress to make it even more special.
I’m a bride to be and as much as choosing a dress is something you dream of it was something I was dreading. Being a shorty and on the meatier side I just knew it was going to be a disaster. Tracey picked out a dress for me, the first dress I tried on and it looked STUNNING! Can you believe it. She was so lovely and helpful, every bride to be should shop there, what a pleasure! The staff are wonderful and really made a potentially disasterous day really special for me. GO TRACEY!
DRESSES FIT PERFECTLY
O’Hanlon Bridal is making all the dresses for my daughter’s wedding, bride, bridesmaids and mother-of-the bride.Even though we are family,Tracey is my sister-in-law, she has guided us and helped us find exactly what fabrics and styles we want and what suits us. There are rough fittings to make sure dresses fit perfectly before they are finalised. The photographer, DJ, etc she referred were all professional and a pleasure to deal with. Most of all it has been fun working with her and not stressful as I thought it was going to be.
I had a wonderful experience at O’Hanlon Bridal. I got married in the month of November 2006, however only really started looking for a dress in July 2006. With only a few months to spare – Tracey came to my aid in a professional manner. Everytime I went there she spent quality time with me and listened to what kind of dress I was interested in, and chose the dress closest to my liking. While trying on dresses she gave her honest opinion on what she thought and it was never a case of trying to sell the most expensive dress to me. My dress came out perfectly, and after losing weight just before the wedding, she altered my dress and it was the most perfect fit. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!
NOTHING SEEMS TO BE TOO MUCH TROUBLE
As a marriage officer, I deal with all types of service providers. O’Hanlon’s staff are amongst the most professional people I deal with. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them!
I had my dress made for my daughter’s wedding at O’Hanlon Bridal. I was treated professionally and Tracey and her wonderful team knew exactly what I wanted and how to treat a mother of the bride. Since my dress being made I have sent a few brides and prom dress girls to visit O’Hanlon Bridal.
HELPFULNESS, FRIENDLINESS AND PROFESSIONALISM
The helpfulness, friendliness and professionalism I received from the moment I walked into O’Hanlon Bridal was out of the top ranks, excellent! Being a difficult bride, the patience practiced from the staff and Tracey O’Hanlon was highly appreciated. They are a team out of a million.
They made and mailed my daughter-in-law’s dress from South Africa to us here in the U.S.A without a problem. They are very professional. Thank you!
Myself & Satara were married in March 2007, one Saturday morning we went into O’Hanlon Bridal, it was rather busy and I remember Tracey assisting us, she was so helpful, she showed Satara a range of beautiful dresses and gave us details for a florist & photographers/videographers. Tracey’s follow up was amazing, at the last hour my best man had problems fitting into his waistjacket, there was Tracey who quickly made up one for him. A huge thank you to Tracey and her staff at O’Hanlon Bridal, it was a pleasure dealing with them and I would recommend everyone to visit their shop.

I WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND THEM
My experience with O’Hanlon was so lovely and refreshing, having been very disappointed with other bridal boutiques. The service I received was fantastic, their dresses were not only beautiful…but clean and well displayed. I spent hours trying on different outfits and having FUN! They definitely have the right formula in their offering and their service and I will always recommend them to other people!
I would like thank O’Hanlon for the superb service which was given to me,even though I was there for about twenty minutes and received my prices for my veil and also found my videographer Marc Wylie contact there as well and received a call during the week before the collection of my veil. I thank you for your beautiful presentation of wedding gowns and designs shown daily at your shop, it enhances many woman's dreams of having such a beautiful wedding day where your bridal shops has stepped in a gracefully helped us in the times of confusion and nervousness. I thank you
