The McCarthy Wolff Bridal Wear Story

“Art is the biggest part of our business.
Every single wedding dress that we make is an artistic creation in itself.
It’s a fabric sculpture.”
~ Jane Wolff

Most fairytales start with “once upon a time” and there is usually a dress involved somewhere within the enchanted tale. The story of McCarthy Wolff is no different: a fairytale of modern times created through metres and metres of fabric, plenty of dreaming, heaps of inspiration and of course many awe-inspiring magical designer wedding dresses. It’s the creation of fairytale moments for brides and women alike that sets this bridal wear brand apart.

At the helm are two friends who have stuck together through burning the midnight oil... Dale McCarthy and Jane Wolff. Their creativity and sheer will to build a successful, yet beautiful bridal wear business has brought them to the forefront of designing and creating bespoke bridal wear and designer corsets.

A shared aesthetic appreciation and work ethic established whilst studying together led to a unique working partnership. Both have Btech degrees in Fashion & Textiles, and have created wedding gowns and other dresses for established public figures, including an ongoing project with a local actress.

Based on a foundation of originality, true elegance and premiere quality, McCarthy Wolff is dedicated to art through fashion.

It’s about construction, impeccable attention to detail; every bead and stitch in its place, each element carefully considered. The formidable team strive to challenge the boundaries for commercially available bridal wear. Steering away from trends in favour of timeless classics there is a true authenticity within all the wedding gowns they design.

Their individual passions are brought together masterfully to ensure that you, the bride walks down the aisle in the wedding gown of your dreams, a creation that captures your true spirit, nature and the joy within your heart on your most magical day.
