Meet the Team


A wedding dress specialist!

There is nothing she doesn’t know about wedding dress shopping, styling and fit.  Tracy’s journey in the wedding industry started in the family wedding gown boutique where she quickly learned the joy of helping brides fulfil their bridal dreams.  Now with more than 25 years experience her talent and knowledge are an asset to The Wedding Dress Surgeon team, and her care and commitment to you all is obvious in her work ethic.

Tracy and Nicola have worked together for years and so their understanding of each other’s skill set and technique is unrivalled. Tracy’s attention to detail means she is perfectly suited to not only fitting your gown but the hand sewing elements of the alteration process. When she is not out at one of our affiliated stores she can be found prepping gowns for stitching by carefully removing appliques and opening seams or finishing with her neat hand stitching.

Tracy’s favourite part of the job is the fittings, meeting each bride with her unique story and requirements, hearing about all the plans for their special day and assisting in that vision coming to life. The reactions of the bride seeing her look come together with the adjustments and her bespoke additions is by far the most fulfilling part.

“Seeing a brides face glow at that final fitting with the effect of their dream dress is the best feeling”

Jo & Di

Where it all started.

For those of you who don’t know our story, Nicola and Tracy both were a part of the family business Bridal Gowns at Jodi.  Owned by twin sisters Jo and Di. Jo and Di are an inspiring team who themselves set up an alterations and dressmaking business for wedding dresses back in the early 90’s.

Although now both retired, in the height of a busy season they can be found in the background putting their years of skilled work to use still with us. 

That talent is ever present and like they worked together seamlessly, now Nicola and Tracy fill those roles in The Wedding Dress Surgeon team.
