Luxury bridalwear for cool modern brides sustainably made in the UK
At Kate Clare Couture I design wedding dresses for the free spirited fashion loving modern bride.
Inspired by vintage styles, crossed with high fashion I make dresses for the cool bride who wants to be different.
I offer ready to wear dresses, veils and accessories or a fully bespoke service!
Ethically and sustainably handmade to the highest of standards, using the finest fabrics and trimmings, including silks, lace and tulles plus eco fabrics such as bamboo and recycled satins!
Fashioning beautiful wedding gowns that are a joy to wear, I offer something truly special, all crafted with the bride in mind.
Based in the heart of Yorkshire on the edge of Ilkley Moor I offer one to one bridal appointments in my relaxed working studio set in a stunning location.

'When it came to my wedding dress, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but straight away I trusted that Kate had the intuition and ability to bring my idea and personal preferences to life. Kate listened to my thoughts on how I wanted to feel on the day. She guided me through materials, textures and fabrics giving me an insight into how they could complement each other to achieve the style and feel that was absolutely to my taste.
She has an acute eye for detail. I loved how she thought about the practicalities of wearing the dress throughout the whole day,into the evening. Getting the fit and comfort of the dress perfect was equally as important to Kate as the design.
Something really special was the unique finishing touches. They really set my dress aside from anything I’d tried on or seen in the shops and meant that the dress was very special to me. This really paid off on the day; I felt comfortable, confident and of course, as every bride should, beautiful!'
Absolutely love this veil. It is so pretty. Can't wait to wear it on my big day
Came in a lovely presentation box.
It fits like a glove and I feel amazing in it, I LOVE IT. Thank you so much, you are a wizard!
I purchased the celestial veil and asked if it could be made in a different length. Kate was extremely helpful and accommodating and was able to create the veil I'd been dreaming of! It was beautifully packaged in a lovely keepsake box. its stunning and amazing quality I cant wait to wear it! Thank you SO much Kate!
Kate supplied two dresses for a recent styled shoot that I arranged and was hugely helpful.
