The KD Studio have had a record breaking summer this year with new Brides and Bridesmaids becoming KD Girls for a day. Here are two of our Brides Leigh (who got married in Italy) and Mel (who got married in Cyprus). Through the fittings in the studio we take as many pictures as we can, obviously they stay top secret until the big day and now we can finally share!
Here at KD we pride ourselves on the final part of the bespoke bride experience, but when our bride is a destination wedding abroad then we can’t attend the day to dress them in their gowns …sadly. We wait with baited breath to see the pictures pop up on social media so we can see the final look of the brides on their most glamourous day. A great idea for some of our brides-to-be is to book your hair or make-up trial for the same day as your fitting so you can start to visualise the final look. But, even with these final touches we can never begin to imagine how glowing a bride will look until the actual day.
We are lucky enough to be invited to the brides party back in the UK and we will be dressing Mel for her wedding party this coming Saturday. Mel is trying something a little different with her dress so stay tuned to find out what happens next!
We have started taking bookings for 2016 Brides, if you are wanting to make your dream a reality you can book in for a free consultation on a day/evening that suits you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.
Leigh came to KD as a bride without a gown, she had tried on every style and silhouette and hadn’t found THE dress. Leigh was a KD ready-to-wear customer and once she heard we started doing bridal she knew she had to have an appointment. Leigh knew the shape of the gown and had even drawn a picture of her dream dress to help the team see exactly what she wanted. We tell all brides to have some inspiration pictures or tear sheets to help us realise the dress they dream of.
Every bride has their first wedding toile made from their exact measurements, this is usually a cotton mock-up of the gown they want. At Leigh’s fitting we knew that she had chosen the perfect silhouette, fitted through the bodice and hip into a fluted mermaid style.
I love getting to know each bride and going on their wedding journey with them, wedding gowns take 8-12 fittings at least and whether you have 8 weeks or 8 months the amount of fittings remain the same but the time in between may be closer. Leigh was such a calm bride and knew exactly what she wanted in her gown. There was to be no lace, embellishments or trims. This gown has a contemporary feel to it as the dress is all about a perfect fit and a soft structure. When having a bespoke gown made everything has to fit like a glove, so Leigh came back with her dress one week before her flight to make sure the desired look was just so. She collected her short veil and organza bow and she was ready for the off!
To say we wait with baited breath for the return of our brides who marry abroad would be an understatement. As we haven’t been lucky enough to dress them on their day we can’t wait to see the snapshots from their dream day. Leigh’s album surpassed all of our dreams with the dramatic backdrop and classic tailoring in the groom’s outfit the album look straight out of a magazine.

Here is a snapshot from our KD Bespoke Bride, Leigh’s wedding day in Italy. Don’t you just love it when the bride emails you a picture on the day of the wedding? We almost feel like we were there with her.
Leigh’s bespoke story along with more of her pictures will be online in the next week, so pop back to the blog to read about her dream day.
Have a lovely weekend!
