We are now taking bookings for appointment only consultations after the expected re-opening of the shop on 12th April. We have a waiting list for bride appointments so please complete a appointment booking enquiry as soon as you can so that we can get you on the list and avoid disappointment.

We are delighted to be able to open the shop from 12th April for consultation. It is strictly by appointment only and we can't take any walk in brides that don't have an appointment.

To make an appointment please do not call the shop as the phone isn't being manned, please complete the appointment booking form using the link below and I will get back to you to discuss some available dates and create something magical for your special day. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon

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:
