Cara and her team are delighted to see the beautiful Cocoa Couture wedding gown featured in HELLO magazine. The gown created for Hermione, daughter of designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen who inspired the design, was finally worn at her wedding in the Cotswolds in January 2022 after nearly 2 years of delays due to Covid. We send our heartfelt congratulations and wish her a long and happy marriage.


Bride And Gown – The Perfect Union, The Perfect Fit


Cocoa Couture is a very rare company – a Cheltenham-based couture wedding dress designer turning dreams into reality.


British bridal boutique Cocoa Couture was established in 1970 and has been making brides’ dreams come true for the last twenty-six years under the creative direction of Cara Wagstaff. Cara’s expert skills and vision have seen Cocoa Couture create some of the most beautiful dresses worldwide.


At Cocoa Couture, it is our ethos that every bride should feel beautiful, happy, comfortable and above all confident on her special day. Our couture made-to-measure service allows each and every bride to have her very own dress created allowing her to truly shine and feel her most beautiful on the biggest day of her life, whilst expressing her unique style and personality. 


The journey begins with an initial consultation, by appointment only, where each bride-to-be will have the chance to try on a selection of dresses from our Cocoa showroom, to discover the perfect silhouette, as well as discuss with Cara, the myriad of options including colour, fabric, lace, embellishment and other wonderful design features. All of the components are then sourced by Cara herself to ensure quality and design aesthetic. 


Every dress is lovingly hand-crafted by our dedicated team of experts in our Cheltenham Atelier. To embark on this unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience book your consultation with Cara today:
