''The day was beautiful and the hat looked stunning, many lovely compliments! Thank You so much again, you helped make a special day even better.''

Lynn (Mother of the Bride) August 2017


''I asked Joanne to make me a Bridal Headpiece for my Wedding day. The service Joanne provided and the piece she made me exceeded all of my expectations. The beautiful Bespoke Bridal piece tied in perfectly with my dress and was unique to my own style. I received so many compliments on the day. The whole process, from initial consultation to delivery of the piece was so straightforward - Joanne answered all of my (many!) queries fully and swiftly. Thank You so much Joanne for making me such a special, unique piece.''

Mary, December 2016

''Flawless, very professional kind person and perfect millinery, totally satisfied with my online purchase!''

Pietra, August 2016

''Joanne took great care to ensure that my chosen hats were perfect for me. The process was very personalised and tailored to ensure that the hats were both the ideal colours and styles, and advice was provided on wearing and fitting. I would not hesitate to recommend Joanne Edwards Millinery. Both hats looks fabulous on - and were subject of many compliments by those in my party and from other race-goers who just wanted to admire the beautiful creations.''

Lesley, September 2016

''I went to Joanne for my bridal headpiece because I was familiar with her work and I knew she would make me something really special. We discussed my dress and she delivered the most beautiful sketches for me to look over. Nothing was too much trouble, even when I went for my final dress fitting and needed to make a few tweaks, she was able to fit them in very last minute. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!''

Clare, October 2015

''Joanne, Thank You so much for my beautiful hat which has now had two outings and many many compliments! I am thrilled with it and it was such a pleasure to meet you. Thanks again!''

Niamh, August 2015

''Joanne, Thank You immensely for this fabulous hat, I loved wearing it!!!''

Jess, July 2015

''I asked Jo to make me a hat for Royal Ascot after meeting her at LK Bennett and she exceeded all expectations. It was truly beautiful and I got so many compliments about it. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and she came to my house which was a godsend with small children. I would whole heartedly recommend her. She is brilliant!''

Lucy (on the right), August 2015

I asked Jo to make a hat for me for a friend's wedding, that I could also wear to the races and I couldn't recommend her enough. Jo's attention to detail was fantastic, she created a hat which really complimented my dress and she is so passionate about what she does. I highly recommend her!

Francesca, October 2014

''Thank You Jo for creating my gorgeous headpiece for my special day in such short notice. I just knew you would create the perfect piece. You captured the 30's feel beautifully''

Deborah, July 2014

''I asked Joanne to create a headpiece I could wear with two different wedding outfits. She worked with me to pick the perfect design and colour and kept me updated and involved throughout the creative process. I love my headpiece and I can't wait to wear it again!''

Fiona, June 2014

''I approached Joanne to make a headpiece for my wedding. After seeing some of her work I knew it would be every bit the perfect and unique accessory that I was looking for. I showed Joanne some ideas for what I had in mind and instantly she came up with a design. She even contacted the dress supplier so she could get the exact lace to match my dress. The final headpiece was something truly unique, designed and created to such high standards and so beautifully matched to my dress.''

Ruth, July 2013  

''I commissioned Joanne to design the headpiece for my wedding in Italy, after seeing some of her creations I was totally won over! I really wanted something unique with a vintage feel to match my dress. I emailed pictures of my dress to Joanne as I live in Ireland. Joanne knew exactly the design I had in mind and one which would compliment the dress. She consulted with the dress designer to get perfect material and bead matches. The result was a beautiful intricate headpiece that I was very proud to wear on my wedding day.''

Claire, May 2013

''Dear Joanne, Thank you for my fabulous creation!!!''

Gracie, December 2012

''You couldn't choose anyone more lovely than Joanne for the perfect hat - you've got everything - creativity, professionalism, attention to detail beyond belief and such a wonderful personality to top it all off. Thank you so much for my fabulous bespoke hat - it was just perfect, such a joy to wear and I received so many wonderful comments!''

Aoife, August 2012 

''I cannot recommend Joanne Edwards highly enough. I needed a headpiece to compliment a Betsy Johnson dress for a wedding. I live in San Francisco and with Joanne living in London, you would think that the whole operation would be impossible but she made it so easy. With nothing more than some pictures of the dress, Joanne sent numerous swatches and drawings and worked extremely closely via email with me to create the most wonderful headpiece. She has incredible attention to detail, really knows what works and her passion for her craft really comes across in her designs. I felt fabulous at the wedding and can't even begin to count the numerous compliments I had on the headpiece. Thank you Joanne!''

Louise, August 2012

''Joanne, Thank you so much for all your hard and creative work on my headpiece. Really honoured to own a piece of your work!''

Roisin, August 2012

''Joanne designed the most exquisite wedding headpieces for my bridesmaid and me. They are perfect, exactly what I had imagined. I sent Joanne a picture of my dress (as I live in Bristol) and she came up with the design and fabric for a perfect accompaniment. I love it!''

Grainne, May 2012 

''Joanne created my dream hat for my wedding. It was an absolute joy working with her and despite having no creative skills myself, she did an amazing job at making me feel part of the design process and in the end created a stunning cocktail hat that was the icing on the cake for a very special day. Not only did it look amazing, but her tips for how to put it on meant it stayed in place all day and night - still looking fabulous at 2.30am after a lot of dancing! Thank you!'' 

Emma, May 2012 

''Thanks for a lovely day of full immersion Millinery! I've got lots of Design ideas and feel like I have a clear idea of the next year or two now...thanks for a great day!''

Kate Thomas September 2018 (1-2-1 Millinery)

''It was an intimate class of 3 and I had a great time learning from Joanne and my fellow classmates. I wanted to make a dual-tone Fascinator....Joanne was patient in helping me to work out the technicalities and we had fun experimenting together. Thanks to her guidance and assistance, I learned new skills and I'm really happy with the result. I'd highly recommend Joanne's classes to anyone.''

Serene Wong, September 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''This was the second course I have completed with Joanne and I cannot give her enough credit for how informative and skilled she is. The class was intimate with 3 people participating, meaning Joanne was able to give a huge amount of time to each student. I am so pleased I completed this course and would recommend it to anyone''.

Sophie Bean, August 2018 (Silk Flower-M aking Workshop)

''From the moment I booked only the course, Joanne was there to help. It started with Joanne checking what colours I wanted to use to create my Fascinator. Then with her guidance throughout the course and the small group size, everyone had enough support to achieve a breath taking outcome, whilst working at their own pace. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and look forward to booking onto my next course with Joanne.''

Katy Smith, August 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''Joanne was very professional and took the time to explain each and every step. She made my first Fascinator design look so easy to make, Thank You Joanne!''. 

Olivia Pambou, August 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''We had a wonderful day with you and I certainly have the enthusiasm to make more in the future!''

Adele Doran, April 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

Caroline McDonald, April 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''Dear Joanne, Thank You so much for a wonderful day. I learned a great deal and had a lot of fun at the same time!''

Diana Daniel-Dawson, April 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''Loved it! Thank You Joanne''

Hannah Lane, April 2018 (Fascinator Workshop)

''LOVED IT! Excellent day! just what I was looking for. Joanne explains everything so well & the fact that is is a very small intimate group helps to get the most from the day. I am now confident to make the flowers for my sons Wedding cake! & I will be back to learn more Millinery skills (my granny would be proud! - she was a Milliner!!)''

Ann Clark, March 2018 (Silk Flower-Making Workshop)

''It was a great course - I'm so proud of what I made.... I had great fun and have since been trying to resist buying ALL the tools and silks!''

Heather Murphy, March 2018 (Silk Flower-Making Workshop)

''It was a great course - I'm so proud of what I made.... I had great fun and have since been trying to resist buying ALL the tools and silks!''

Heather Murphy, March 2018 (Silk Flower-Making Workshop)

''I wanted to say a big Thank You for a wonderful workshop today - it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday, making silk flowers in your cosy and inviting studio. Thank You for your patience and warmth and for sharing your expertise and experience with us. I really enjoyed the process and went away with a feeling of accomplishment having made two beautiful Silk flowers'' 

Alexandra Moreton, March 2018 (Silk Flower-Making Workshop)

''Having studied Millinery previously but lacking confidence, in late 2016/early 2017 I took a course of private tuition with Joanne. We covered a range of topics including Flower-making, Felt, Straw and Bridal. The course was excellent and I learned a great deal. Joanne is lovely, has extensive experience in Millinery and is also a very good teacher. She was happy to answer my questions (however silly they seemed!) and would make sure that I understood and had a chance to practice the techniques being taught. I now feel much more confident and I would highly recommend courses with her''

Claire Griffiths, 2016/17 (1-2-1 Millinery Tuition)

''A huge Thank You for a great week at CSM. It was a real change for me from the norm and a treat to have such attentive and intensive tuition. I am inspired to create more and thanks for the advise about goal-setting.

Kate Thomas, September 2016 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course)

''My millinery course by Joanne was an amazing experience! Joanne is super professional and talented, with vast knowledge and experience. She teaches with a lot of patience and takes into account the abilities of the student. I learned a lot of millinery techniques and flower-making skills and would really recommend the course as I got so much out of it''

Netta Gabor, November 2016 (1-2-1 Millinery Tuition)

''During my five-day course with Joanne at Central Saint Martins, we learned not just the basics of fabric flower-making; Joanne paid great attention to everyone's individual learning needs, which ranged from making a floral headband for a young daughter to embroidering silk with tiny fabric flowers for a fashion portfolio. There was a professional and friendly atmosphere throughout the course which allowed each of us to improve our skills and to enjoy craftsmanship!''

Veronie Willemars, September 2017 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course) 

''I'm excited to put my new skills to use Joanne, thank you so much for your encouraging and hands-on tuition in how to make couture silk flowers. So inspiring''

Summer-Rayne Hallowes, September 2017 (Central Saint Martins/Short Course)

''I learnt so much from Joanne during my 3-day silk flower and floral headpiece making one-to-one course. It was great being in her studio and seeing a milliner in action and being able to ask her anything about the creative and business side of what she does. Joanne was very generous with providing details of suppliers that she uses and helped me with the silk flower irons that I would need to get started.
