Shropshire Studio and Showroom

Laura specialises in bespoke handmade hats for Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, Bridal Headpieces, hats for Race Meetings and Christenings.

Laura would be delighted to guide you through the bespoke process from start to finish, assisting you in choosing a style to suit you personally.

Laura also stocks a range of black and midnight blue hats and headpieces for funerals, memorial services and military occasions.

Laura is available by appointment in London, a selection of forthcoming dates will be published shortly on the Events page. 

For bespoke hats, please contact us to arrange an appointment two weeks prior to the date of your occasion to ensure that Laura can be with you.

Laura would also be delighted to meet with you in her millinery studio in Shropshire where you can try on various hats and headpieces to get a sense of size and which colours and designs suit your personal style.

For consultations, it may be useful to bring either a fabric sample and the proposed outfit or a photograph of your outfit.

We stock a range of Ready to Wear hats to suit all occasions if you have left it late - please see the Shop page which is regularly updated with new styles.  Alternatively, Laura would be delighted to bring a selection of hats to your appointment to enable you to purchase.  Please contact us by email at: and we will call you back as soon as possible.


Private appointments in London for my making a one-off couture hat to match an outfit for any special occasion can be made at any time but please note that two weeks notice needs to be given as Laura is between her studio in Shropshire and London. On the Events Page you will find dates of her next Salon days in London.
