Kate Beaumont


Rebecca loved my Wild Lupin dress and made a few changes to make it her own. We switched the gold silk underneath the lace for ivory, to give the dress a more classic and elegant feel. We made the bodice more fitted and totally lace-covered, and lowered the waistline to sit on her natural waist. I also changed the double scallop edges on the skirt for single ones to simplify the lines of the skirt, and added a diagonally pointed puddle train. Despite flirting with different coloured ribbons for the sash, Rebecca decided to stick with the original oyster colour, which works as the perfect accent against the ivory silk and lace.

Rebecca and Tim got married at St Michael and All Angels’ Church in Leeds, and her floor length veil and flower crown added effortless sophistication to her dress, which worked beautifully in this traditional venue. Their reception was held at the modern White Cloth Gallery, a blank canvas which Rebecca and Tim made their own with tables laden with candles and bunches of gypsophelia, along with fabulous badges, temporary tattoos and instax cameras to keep their guests amused.

“Just got back from honeymoon yesterday and wanted to drop you a little email to say thank you so much for making my amazing wedding dress - it was an absolute dream to wear and is absolutely without a doubt the most beautiful thing I have ever worn or will ever wear. I felt amazing in it and Tim loved it too!  One of the ladies in the choir at the service said it was the most beautiful wedding dress she'd ever seen (including her own!) so I think you have a lot of new fans in Leeds :) You were an absolute dream to work with - not just from your amazing dress making and designing talents, but you are so friendly and welcoming and always made time to chat to my mum and I even though you are such a busy lady (especially with becoming a mum to that adorable Mr Rex!). Thanks again Kate for being a total superstar I'd recommend you in a heartbeat!” Rebecca
