Kate Beaumont designs and makes understatedly beautiful wedding gowns and bridal separates, perfect for modern brides. Made from the finest French laces and soft flowing silks, these are timeless designs that ooze quality; dresses as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful to look at.
Kate creates a variety of silhouettes and styles: slinky, bias – cut silk gowns that nod to the elegance of the 1930s; romantic, bohemian dresses, combining delicate, floaty laces with shimmering silks; clean, modern cuts featuring matte silks and bold, geometric lace patterns.
Kate’s Sheffield studio is housed in a converted cutlery factory – a listed building full of quirky industrial charm. She runs all appointments in person, relishing the chance to get to know her brides, and keeping the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. Kate’s Collection dresses can often be adapted – by changing necklines, sleeves, fabrics etc – to create bespoke versions of her designs which work perfectly for each individual bride. Kate’s dresses are made to order so waste can be kept to an absolute minimum, then toiled, made and fitted to perfection by her small team in Sheffield.
From the moment I arrived at Kate's website, I knew she would be designing and making my wedding dress. I wanted an elegant, unique, boho style dress and I fell in love with the beautiful range on display. Upon arriving at Kate's equally beautiful studio (adorned with the most stunning and quirky plant collection), I fell further in love with all the dresses. Kate helped me arrive at the perfect design, combining elements from existing dresses, encouraging me with putting my own twists on them, and being unbelievably skilled at ensuring I ended up with my perfect dress. I adored popping into the studio for fittings (and having weird and wonderful conversations) and I miss my visits terribly! My dress was a masterpiece and I felt incredible in it on my wedding day. Kate is an absolute superstar; she's a phenomenally talented designer, delightfully idiosyncratic and one of the most excellent people I've had the pleasure of meeting.Carly
Thank you so much for my beautiful wedding dress! I could not have been more smitten with it - thank you for helping me feel like the best version of myself on my wedding day.
It was lovely getting to know you throughout the process, you are amazing and deserve every success that comes your way!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you again for making me the perfect dress. I honestly felt amazing in it and so many people commented on how unique and beautiful it was!Chrissie
From the minute I walked into Kate's beautiful space, I knew I had to buy a dress from her. She is the most lovely, warm and personable person who made me feel so comfortable from the minute I met her. I had very different experiences in other shops but Kate really took the time to get to know me, she has a way of making you feel so comfortable you tell her a story without her even asking! She was so patient and despite being in the midst of a very busy season she never made me feel rushed and perfected every tiny detail until the end. The whole process of creating my dress was such a pleasure and I'm sad it's over because I genuinely looked forwards to walking into Kate's studio. Thank you so much for making me a dress that made me feel comfortable - and made him cry. You really are a wonderful person and dressmaker and I'll recommend you to everyone I meet.Kathryn
