Wedding dresses for the fashion-forward bride

If you can’t see yourself walking down the aisle in a big white wedding dress, then you may need to turn your attention to inspiring new brand, Katie Dell.

The brand offers modern day wedding dresses for elegant, simple yet stylish brides to be.

Designed by Katie Dodd who made the move from London to Leicestershire a few years ago, the young designer has used what she learned while working at Charlie Brear to create a unique brand which speaks to brides who want less frou-frou and more finesse.

Based in The Manor, Tur Langton, Katie works from her studio and uses the other half as a shop, where brides can come for their pre-booked appointments. Each appointment lasts for 90 minutes so brides can enjoy the entire process and take their time finding the perfect dress.

Currently Katie has two collections: Waverley and Margot. The Margot is an inspiring mix and match  range where brides can choose a top and match it with a different skirt to create a whole new one-of-a-kind dress. Katie believes this will give brides the freedom to create their perfect bridal look.

Meanwhile, the Waverley is a collection of beautifully designed dresses which are ready to buy and include intricate embroidery lace, fitted skirts, satin gowns and delicate bows.

Brides can expect a blend of fashion-forward designs and modern shapes. Each dress is handmade to order and crafted from luxury fabrics like Spanish crepes, satins, tulle, chiffon as well as intricate Portuguese lace and detailed embroidery.

So whether you’re planning a small do or a lavish reception, these unique pieces could well be your perfect match.
