Kathryn chose Clematis for her wedding, and made a few changes to the original design to make it perfect for her. She swapped the silk-satin colour from champagne to ivory. Plus we lengthened the lace raglan sleeves, and re-angled the lower diagonal panels at the back to provide a little more coverage. Kathryn also chose to add a pearls belt, which I mounted on a complementary ivory ribbon and sewed onto her dress, securing it along the front waist seam to ensure it didn’t slide out of place.
Kathryn and James were married at the stunning Browsholme Hall in Clitheroe, then headed to The Inn at Whitewell where their reception was held in a marquee decorated with gorgeous florals.
Kathryn’s a wedding photographer and found me after seeing my dresses used at a workshop she was attending. You can see her work at Delicious Photography.
“From the minute I walked into Kate’s beautiful space I knew I had to buy a dress from her. She is the most lovely, warm and personable person who made me feel so comfortable from the minute I met her. I had very different experiences in other shops but Kate really took the time to listen not only to what I wanted for my dress but she took the time to get to know me, she has a way of making you feel so comfortable you tell her your life story without her even asking! She was so patient and despite being in the midst of a very busy season she never made me feel rushed and perfected every tiny detail until the end. The whole process of creating my dress was such a pleasure and I’m sad it’s over because I genuinely looked forward to walking into Kate’s studio. Thank you so much for making me a dress that made me feel comfortable- and made him cry. You really are a wonderful person and dressmaker and I’ll recommend you to everyone I meet.” Kathryn
