The birds at Hemming Birds

Hello! We’re Faye and Carys, the owners of Hemming Birds. We began running Hemming Birds from our homes in 2011. By September 2014 we needed more space and took the plunge – moving into our current premises in Plympton.

We have a wealth of experience in clothing manufacturing, alterations and more, with  degrees in Fashion and Textiles. You are in safe hands here at Hemming Birds! Since 2014 our team has grown, beginning with our Head Seamstressm Sue, who manages our Bridal department. Sue’s experience and knowledge is priceless. We now have four seamstresses, all of which have over 20 years of experience.

We have a brilliant relationship with local bridal shops in Plymouth, many sending their brides and bridesmaids to us to alter their gowns. We are exclusively recommended by TeAmo Bridal and are honoured to build strong relationships with all of our customers, as you can see from our testimonials!

Since setting up in Plympton we have grown more than we could ever have imagined. Our aim is to carry on helping more brides feel special on their big day, make more homes look beautiful and alter more clothing so your trusted favourites never let you down. We have lots of exciting plans for the future!

To keep up to date with our progress follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

About

THE NEW MRS JAKES

Six weeks before my wedding I had a nasty cycling accident and managed to break my wrist and elbow. I was not able to exercise I was left with a dress dilemma and didn’t feel comfortable in my original choice.

The ladies at hemming birds took me under their wing and adjusted my new wedding dress choice at very short notice – 2 weeks to be exact! Their work was first class and their service was 5 star – they put one very stressed bride at ease. I had a fabulous wedding day and loved my dress.

About

THE NEW MRS SMITH

Well what can I say! Amazing service, amazing team and incredibly talented! Not all brides find their dream dress straight away and it took me a while… I eventually found the most amazing dress but it wasn’t ‘the one’ with out a few changes.

I went to Hemming Birds to see if they could help. They made me my dream dress which fitted perfectly! They also altered my six bridesmaid dresses to perfection, even with a couple of them not living locally.  I can’t thank them enough for making the whole experience stress free. I had the most amazing day all thanks to the Hemming Birds team.

Nothing was too much trouble no matter how many fittings were required. You made me feel very welcome.

A very professional service. I highly recommend Hemming Birds. Many thanks to Carys and the team.
