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!

KD Bespoke Bride Leigh’s Lake Garda Wedding.

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.

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!

The Sandon Hall wedding show.

Fashion

When were invited to show our Bespoke Bridesmaid collection on Saturday at Sandon Hall in Staffordshire we didn’t really know what to expect. As we came off the motorway, turned down a few country lanes and down a long drive (past the sheep) we were greeted by this magnificent ancestral hall sat in 400 acres of land.

This is our fifth wedding show this year and we have one more to do. The venue for Saturday’s wedding show was a dream, we told every bride who had booked the Hall for their wedding that we were extremely jealous.  When you book the hall you can play Lord and Lady for the day as you get the run of the place and the grounds. From the long hall as you first walk in to the conservatory and library rooms.

If you want a venue which is grand in every way then this would be the one for your day.

Barbara Daley salon

What makes your product/service so unique in the North West?

We have been doing hair and make for brides since the salon very first opened in 1990. Our team are masters of beautiful, wearable hair and we pride ourselves on the attention to detail and the personalisation of every hairstyle we send out. We were finalists for the coveted title of British Hairdresser of the Year in the North West 2013 and work each season at London Fashion week, and for publications including Vogue, Red and Elle magazine regularly which means we know what the trends are, in fact we are creating them. We can tailor a bespoke wedding package for brides and we offer free consultations with our hairdressers and beauticians in which we can look at every aspect of your prep for the big day including cut, colour, skin analysis and home care regime.
What would your 3 top tips for Brides-to-be?

1.Be the most beautiful version of yourself (don’t try to do something that’s not you, or that you don’t feel comfortable in, remember you have to look at those pictures forever), 2.Be prepared (have a trial of your hair and make up before the big day so you know exactly what you’re getting, how it feels and most importantly will it last)

3.Finally don’t buy your head dress before you’ve chosen your hairstyle (many brides make the mistake of buying a headdress before deciding on the hair and then the hairdresser is trying to find a style that works with the headdress rather than one which best suits you, your face shape and your hairtype. The headdress should be an add on to the hair rather than the other way around)

What is your fantasy wedding venue?

Dana Point, Southern California, if i was getting married again it would definitely be there on a cliff top over looking the Pacific Ocean a world away from St Alberts’ church in Cantril Farm where I was actually married ha!
