The first spark of ideas for THE most significant outfit of your life begin to take shape in an initial, relaxed consultation with classically trained couture designer Kate Collins.

The bright, welcoming studio on the Northumberland coastline where this takes place, is filled with hundreds of intricate laces, silks, beaded embroideries and a range of made-to-measure dresses to try on for inspiration. Great time and care is taken to get to know your personal style and the feel of your wedding day, as so much of this is reflected in the final dress design. Because every outfit is bespoke, the variation in style is endless, but the thread of Kate’s personal creativity is apparent throughout. She cleverly mixes a passion for quality vintage elegance, with elements of contemporary cut and style to create designs which are then expertly made and hand-finished.  Brides-to-be highly rate the personal and relaxed manner in which Kate works and the simplicity of the process from first design to a dress as individual as they are!
