Captured at Yorkshire’s captivating Jervaulx Abbey and featuring a host of uber-talented suppliers from across the county, we have gorgeous gowns and pretty details aplenty in today’s styled shoot.
In particular, we love how the raw, natural landscape contrasts with the delicate textures and tones of Kate’s whimsical gowns and the carefully considered styling elements to tie the whole ‘secret garden’ theme together effortlessly.
Here to talk us through the concept and creativity in full, is designer Kate.
Model: Abi Atkin
Growing up in Yorkshire,Jervaulx Abbey.has always been a magical and beautiful place for me, and I knew its classical style architecture and the stunning Yorkshire countryside would be the perfect backdrop for my dresses. I love how Jervaulx Abbey feels like a secret garden, you get lost amongst the ruins like stepping into a romantic fairytale world!
The venue is so versatile, perfect for intimate and larger scale weddings. There are so many secret archways and steps, together with photographer Jane, we found so many wonderful ready-made frames in which to take some artistic shots, and our model Abi was happy to climb up into the ruins and perform balancing acts in her heels to get some great photographs!

The showcased sample designs in different luxury fabrics, styles and silhouettes were all handmade by myself in my Yorkshire studio, following the ethos of slow and sustainable fashion. Some of the designs will become part of a permanent collection coming soon to offer brides a choice of bespoke couture or ready to wear gowns and accessories.
For the hair and makeup, we wanted an elegant and classic look that was ultimately timeless. Something to enhance the natural beauty of our bride and keep the look super fresh, natural and radiant.
We were lucky on the day as the weather had been terrible for a few days before, so we only had to duck in and out of the wind and rain occasionally! But considering it was the middle of December, we saw a few rainbows, and it was lovely to be out in a beautiful setting!
Anna and the family at Jervaulx Abbey were so helpful and accommodating – any wedding party would be well looked after here!
I will be offering some ready to wear items on my website hopefully by late spring to complement my bespoke bridal wear. I also have a separate sister sitewww.festivalbride.co.uklaunching this spring/summer, offering more fashion-led ready to wear bridal design.
