our team

Meet our highly skilled and experienced team.

At Atelier Alterations we have a highly skilled and experienced team of seamstresses with backgrounds in bridal retail, wedding dress design and manufacturing, and theatre costume design.

Whilst their experience is wide-ranging, they share a deep passion for their work and are dedicated to providing the very highest levels of quality and service.



The former owner of an award-winning bridal boutique near Cardiff and now a wedding dress designer with her own successful label, Maria established Atelier Alterations after experiencing great difficulty in finding a skilled and reliable seamstress to carry out alterations to wedding dresses for her brides.

She takes great pride in making sure that our brides receive the very best care and attention throughout the alterations process.


Hayley has a background in retail management and has worked in the bridal sector since 2013.

She takes great pride in providing the highest levels of customer service and her unflappable nature helps to make even the most nervous brides feel truly at ease.
