What we do

Tara Lynn designs sustainable, natural fibre custom wedding gowns and groomswear.

Each gown is created especially for the bride. Tara Lynn gets to know her clients and creates their dream gown.  Past designs have included seashell trains and hand embroidered flower appliqués of the brides' favourite flowers and butterflies.  It's this personal touch that makes you feel special on your wedding day.

Many brides take into consideration every little element that goes into the wedding, even the eco conscious bride. You want to simplify your wedding by eliminating the frou-frou, glitter and materialism that comes along with many weddings.

Don’t feel guilty, however, if you are one of these brides and you find yourself striving to create the perfect eco wedding. It takes time to find the right products to minimize the waste and consumption at the wedding while not compromising the comfort and enjoyment of your guests.

There are the organic flowers, local menu, recycled dinner wear, outdoor location, tree free invitations and most importantly the element you get to keep for the rest of your life - the eco wedding dress!

Well you can be a green bride and still dress to impress. Tara Lynn can make you an eco friendly wedding gown you will love and cherish.
