London Bridal Designer Kate Edmondson has released a collection of new pieces as part of her civil ceremony & party range. We caught up with Kate and asked her to tell us the long and the short of it.

“This collection is part of our civil ceremony range which we started a few years ago.” says Kate. “We’ve added more looks and styles for our brides. These pieces have a structured, more tailored look, perfect for brides wanting looks for their rehearsal dinner, civil ceremony or party. The pieces are very versatile.

The idea behind the collection is to give brides more choice when they are planning a relaxed, intimate wedding but still want something special for their wedding day. And of course, the pieces can be worn again. The styles can be mixed and matched with trousers or skirt options so brides can choose the look they want from the pieces available. This collection is timeless and classic. Each piece can be worn as day or evening-wear depending on the occasion.”

And what about Kate’s thoughts on sustainability?  “We are all aware of the climate and want to do what we can to make the world a better place. Our brand does not mass produce” Kate explains. “All our work is made locally and handcrafted using traditional couture methods. We do not produce throw away fashion. All our dresses and pieces are investment pieces.”

So do you have a favourite from the recent additions? “I love them all but if I had to choose it would be the double-breasted bridal coat dress. It’s effortless and so easy to wear with the most gorgeous shoes and jewellery.”

What about embracing our curves? Will brides with a curvy frame find the designs work for their shape? “We work on a bespoke basis with women of all sizes.” says Kate.  “Our initial bridal consultation allows us to discuss all aspects of their bridal look. The shape and fit is extremely important when designing for brides individually. We focus a lot in this area during the design and development of each outfit or bridal dress.”

So what’s next for Kate Edmondson Bridal Couture? “Developing more styles for the range including evening party looks for brides!” More party dresses? That sounds like something worth celebrating !
