What is the lead-time on your gowns?
We generally recommend a 6 month lead time which allows for making the dress plus alterations. However we can happily accommodate brides who need a rush order.
Do you offer a bespoke service?
All pieces are made to order so we can happily discuss changing elements within any of the pieces from our collections, such as changing a sleeve, a neckline or switching a fabric. We can also offer a more bespoke service if you want to combine elements from two or more existing designs, or even create something unique for you. We try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible so please get in touch to discuss your ideas.
Where can I try on your collections?
The Kindling Bridal showroom is based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire and we love welcoming brides here to try on our pieces. Please get in touch via our website to book an appointment. We also have a few pieces stocked at Story of My Dress in Kent, who you can contact directly to book an appointment with.
Do you stock accessories?
We sure do! We have a great selection of Kindling Bridal veils for you to try during your appointment, and can make any style/length veil custom for you. We also stock ReWritten Bridesmaid dresses, Pearl & Stud shoes and Kiri & Belle jewellery, as well as our locally made Kindling Candles which make a great gift. If you've already got your wedding dress you're more than welcome to book an accessories appointment to come and try and or all of these.
I love the whole vibe of the Kindling studio. Its super chilled and instantly puts you at ease. There’s so much light, it smells nice, the tunes are fab and the fizz is chilled - what more could you ask for!? Personally having a capsule collection where each style offers a completely different look allowed me to experiment without getting overwhelmed by too much choice. I wanted to customise a few details on my dress to suit my shape and taste - Kerri is so open to bringing your ideas to life, she is literally a dream to work with. Her skills with pattern cutting and alterations are just as good as her design skills so the end result is something really special. One of the many things I love about the Kindling collection is depending on how the dresses are styled they take on completely different looks. On one hand they can be styled to look super modern and boho. On the other hand they can take on a more classic and regal look! The quality of everything from the fabrics, to the trims to the make up of the dresses is second to none. Would 100% recommend to any bride to be.
I had dragged my poor mum to bridal shops all over, but could never find one dress with everything I was looking for. I met with Kerri who basically shared my attention to detail but with much more style and talent. I told her all the jumbled aspects I had in my mind and she created the best thing I've ever had the pleasure to put on. I didn’t actually enjoy the first set of dress shopping as I felt a little bit out of my depth, but the whole process of having a bespoke dress made by Kerri felt organic, it was fun and light hearted and usually involved bubbles.
Kindling Bridal was the first bridal shop I went to and the Celeste gown was the first dress I tried on. It felt amazing - I loved the silk. It was exactly the type of sleek and elegant dress I was looking for. I also loved the Pegasus and Aquarius gowns- the botanical lace is so unique ... as well as the Cygnus (such a show stopper!). I then matched the Aries top with the Celeste gown and really liked the two looks. Kerri was so helpful and the boutique is a lovely place to spend a long time looking at the collection without feeling rushed. I went away and tried quite a few dresses in different bridal shops but couldn't stop thinking about the Celeste gown. I tried it on again a few months later and a bespoke Pegasus top and knew it was the dress for me. Kerri was so lovely and helped me to adapt it so it was just right (I added buttons, had thicker straps and adapted the top so it had a lower neckline and simple sleeves). The fitting experience was great and Kerri was really flexible to make sure it was perfect. When I went to collect the dress she also gave me a 'Wedding Day' candle that smells amazing that I used on my wedding morning. She even helped me adapt a white denim jacket I bought for the day. I absolutely loved the fact I ended up with three different looks for each part of the day- it made it extra special. The Celeste on its own is perfect for the first dance too- it moves effortlessly. I had endless compliments on the day and afterwards on how stunning the dress was and the photos look simply beautiful.
Kindling Bridal is the only place and the wonderful Kerri is the only designer that could have brought my one of a kind dress to life! The exquisite fitting, jaw dropping fabrics, attention to detail, inclusive sizing, are next level....and I have worked in fashion my whole life. The studio is beautiful, intimate and I felt at home straight away (there is ALWAYS a bottle popping....woop). Kerri, thank you again from the bottom of my heart...words will never quite express the way your dress made me feel on one of the most important days of my life. So honoured to be a Kindling Bride
I was proud to be a Kindling bride in September 2019 wearing the Orion gown. When I first got engaged, I felt a bit underwhelmed by many of the offerings on the market until I discovered the dreamy dresses by Kindling Bridal. I loved all of Kerri’s designs because they beautifully mixed tradition with a more modern edge, which was exactly the image I wanted for our wedding day. It could not have been more lovely to make the trips up to Hebden Bridge first to try on lots of dresses and later for fittings. Kerri could never do too much, making adjustments to the style to suit me, and made the whole experience so special. I’m forever recommending Kindling Bridal to my engaged friends. On the day in my Kindling dress, I felt totally relaxed, comfortable and beautiful, something that doesn’t happen very often! Only a very special dress can make someone feel all those three things at once!
