Kate Sherford Bridal Design has an enviable thirty year tradition of producing the very best of classic, English wedding gowns. Every one is handmade by a dedicated team of skilled cutters, seamstresses and handbeaders in Somerset, and has a level of corsetry that requires a very high standard of cut and fit. Most of the styles in the collection include an internal corset that delivers a couture fit whilst maintaining the flattering bodice shape throughout the wedding day.
The Kate Sherford design direction is soft and romantic using dramatic layering and gathering of luxurious silk fabrics like duchesse satin, georgette and organza. To flatter the femail form skirt styles range from sexy fishtail through full, fluid A-line to glamorous ballgown. Design details, including bows, tails and diamante, provide the perfect finishing touch.
The Kate Sherford Collection retails from £1,400 to £2,200 and is available from an exclusive list of retailers in the UK and Ireland. Standard sizes are 10 to 18 (these are couture sizes which are slightly smaller than 'high street' sizes). Sizes 6 through to 28 can be ordered as can 'made-to-measure' and toiles. All of our retailers offer or can recommend a professional alteration service. You should allow 12 weeks from our receipt of your order to delivery of the gown to the retailer.
