Coronavirus (COVID-19)


In these uncertain times with the Virus lockdown why not take the opportunity to start making plans for your wedding dress now, ready for when things start to get back to normal. 

I have closed the shop for the moment but I am still able to work on ideas remotely by email or telephone at home and I have started a priority appointment list for brides ready for when the shop re-opens.

Why not drop me an email in the first instance with your ideas and requirements and let’s get you on the priority appointments list and start creating something wonderful just for you. 


Best wishes

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 has 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 discussing, 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 life time experience book you consultation with Cara today:
