Introducing the new collections

Kate Fearnley is delighted to announce the launch of her Bridal collections ‘Platinum’ and ‘Awaken’, now available from selected stockists.

“Having a dress designed by Kate was everything any girl would dream of, and more!”

“My mum had dresses from Kate for various events in the past and almost as soon as we were engaged, she suggested we go to Kate for my wedding dress.”

“Kate’s ability to make my dream dress come to life was incredible. From the very first appointment, she understood exactly what it was I wanted and worked so hard to make that a reality. From the tiniest of details, Kate and her team took care of everything. The whole experience- even in the midst of a pandemic- was just so special.”

My dress (even if I do say so myself) is absolutely incredible, even more so than I could have imagined. I had so, so many comments on the day and since from pictures. In fact, we’re having the dress framed so I can continue to enjoy it even after the wedding. My husband agreed; pieces of art work are framed and put on display, and this dress is certainly a piece of art.

“Thank you so much to Kate and her team. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate Fernley Bridal to anyone looking for their dream wedding dress.”

“I first met Kate at the Belle Bridal show in Wynyard Hall. I wasn’t expecting to find my dress, it was just a fun day out looking for ideas with a fellow ‘bride to be’. I had seen so many dresses but nothing seemed to match, I either liked the top but not the skirt, or vice versa. When we saw Kate’s dresses I was so excited; to discover she designed them herself and could make something that would suit my style was incredible.

Kate was so lovely to work with, she knows so much about the different materials and how they will fit and work together. It was nerve racking picking a dress I couldn’t physically see, but we had plenty of appointments booked to develop ideas and we made changes along the way. The end result was stunning and it felt so personal. Kate was so calming and i always appreciated the cup of tea and time to chat when we arrived for our appointments. Two years on and we still keep in touch. I really enjoy seeing her new designs come to life for so many other brides. I wish i could do it all over again.”
