Come visit our Studio
It's been a very exciting 2017, after my own wedding in May I finally managed to release my baby, Kindling Bridal into the world- since getting the spark to start my own brand in late 2016, I was delighted to enter 2017 feeling raring to go, full of inspiration and ready to put my energy into creating a bridal label that I could be proud of: both in design terms as well as production.
Kindling Bridal launched with our Constellation Collection in November, and since then we've had trunk shows at two very beautiful and cool independent boutiques (you should check our previous blog posts on both of these!)
The beautiful Bridge Mill in Hebden Bridge - we're up on the top floor next to the chimney, overlooking the river.
Whilst the collections have been out of our hands across the country, we've been focusing on moving into a new studio in a very old Mill in the beautiful little town of Hebden Bridge. I wanted the Kindling studio to be a functional and relaxing place where we can also welcome brides to come and try on our gowns, enjoy a glass of fizz (or cup of Yorkshire tea) with us, and enjoy a day in Hebden with her bride tribe.
Kindling studio half way through the renovation.
The studio is a beautiful space, with lots of natural light from windows overlooking the river and main square, it's an old trouser making milk, and our room has original wooden floor boards that have been patched up all over from where the factory workers wore holes in it with their heavy clogs and repetitive walking around the sewing machines many moons ago! So as impractical as our jigsaw, patchwork, creaky room may be in places I just fell in love- I'm a sucker for character!
The studio is just about ready, and our collection will be working it’s way back to us from Flamingo Boulevard at the end of this week, so I’m so excited to welcome you to our open day this Sunday 17th December. Come along, have a look at our full collection and enjoy a glass of fizz and a mince pie, and enjoy a wander around Hebden which is going to be super festive – I can’t wait!
