Karrah Dress – bridesmaid editorial.




We love seeing the KD dresses in editorial features. It is always so exciting to see the way the stylists/glam teams and photographers have reimagined the looks. The Karrah Dress (see here) is from the SS15 Bridesmaid collection and has been photographed in the a grand stately home and paired with some exqusite fine jewellery. The final editorial is not bridal nor bridesmaid but works more as a glamourous night-time/red carpet look.

KD Bespoke Bridesmaids, Kavita’s wedding.

KIRSTY DOYLE Bespoke Bridesmaids

Start today right by looking at these picture perfect bridesmaids dressed in KD Bespoke gowns.

When you first meet a bride and her maids at the consultation it is important to get as much as you can from their initial ideas. Kavita (bride-to-be) wanted fuschia pink as her colour with crystal embellishments on the dresses. The wedding was to have a hint of Bollywood mixed with a dash of glamour, the main colour theme began with the maids and went through to the table settings and floral decorations.

Kavita was based down south and her maids were up in Liverpool so we did some of her fittings via Skype, so she could see exactly where she wanted the crystal detailing to be placed. A real  trend we have noticed in our bridesmaids is to have each skirt part the same and the bodice suited to the bridesmaid. An idea for each bride-to-be to consider is for everyone to feel fabulous but also comfortable (dare I say it), do this is by allowing everyone to choose their own bodice style.

We are loving the finishing touches to this set of bridesmaids, from the bindis to the delicate floral wrist decorations. You can never begin to imagine how each bridesmaid will look once the hair and make-up is perfected and the accessories on. After dressing each bridesmaid and helping them safely into the vintage cars we couldn’t have been happier with finished results!

Claire Bassnett’s Bespoke Bridesmaids

KIRSTY DOYLE Bespoke Bridesmaids





Claire was a bride to be who knew exactly what she wanted, she had a clear design idea and colour scheme as soon as we met at the beginning of 2013. We decided to meet again with the bridesmaids closer to the wedding date of June 2014. When we met we choose the fabrics and exact lavender shade to match her flowers and decorations.

One of Claire’s bridesmaids flew in from Barcelona especially for her fitting, so this was an international affair! Each bridesmaid had their gowns fitted perfectly to them and we discussed all of the details including the hand pleated organza knots that took the dresses from special to ultra-special. Each hand twisted knot was hand made and sewn onto the dresses to keep them in their place throughout the day.

We love these final shots from Claire’s wedding day as they capture the personality of the bride and her bridesmaids, they look like they had the party that Claire promised it would be!

You may remember if you are avid readers  of the blog that I featured Charlotte Peacock’s bridesmaids before. As part of the Real Brides section of the blog I want to feature the finished pictures from each bespoke bride/bridesmaid in all of their beautiful glory.

I love these pictures as the hair, make-up and accessories all finish each look perfectly. Charlotte kept the make-up feminine and dewy with each girl having a bouncy up do. The jewellery was minimal and the nude Louboutins make the girls legs looks super long!

Bespoke Bridesmaid – The LD Dresses

KIRSTY DOYLE Bespoke Bridesmaids



The lovely bride Laura sent us a snapshot from her wedding day with her 5 friends dressed in the LD Bridesmaid dresses. The LD draped back, the LD bustier and the LD one shoulder dress in lemon have been a runaway success – they are a firm favourite for brides up and down the country. The tailored shape with fluted mermaid style skirt look is cut to flatter and elongate the body.

They come in a variety of colours but this delicious lemon sorbet shade shimmers in the sunshine.
