'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!'
