This week I had the pleasure of attending the Greta Kate launch and bridal bazaar at Greta Kate HQ in Norwood.

On arrival  I passed through Greta’s client area which is beautifully styled and oozes elegance. It’s an extremely decadent area for her to meet and greet with clients and also for the all important measure ups and fittings.

I then headed through to the back garden which I have to say was beautifully styled throughout and the light was super gorgeous as golden hour set upon us.

Familiar faces aka Caitlyn from Caitlyns Cakes and Celeste from Illume Flowers and Events where also there as part of the bridal bazaar.  Caitlyn showcasing some yummo cakes and cupcakes and Celeste with some stunning floral designs (including Peonies oh yeah!!!)

So let’s talk about Greta herself and her story.  Well she’s a well travelled girl and a fully locally qualified fashion designer. Bridal wear is a relatively new addition to her portflio and she also designs all kinds of bespoke dresses for all types of special occasions.

Her bridalwear collection in particular is well thought through with attention to detail in making sure the Bride feels as special as she should do. There are pretty kimonos for Bridesmaids to hire and all Brides receive a white kimono as part of the bridal package and overall experience.

Within the busy crowd there were lots of excited engaged Brides to be who revelled in the runway show which was flawless and well curated with the designs definitely having some international inspiration with a dash of couture thrown in.  Slightly out of the box without being alternative.  I must say, I fell in love.  Greta herself mentioned during her speech that she wanted to design a collection that was seen as being a little bit different and she totally nailed her brief. Words that spring to my mind are floaty, beaded, boho, couture, off white, metallic and French.

Plus, her collection doesn’t stop at the Bride.  There were some uber cute flower girl dresses too with two of the most adorable models.

Greta Kate’s designs are a unique twist on traditional bridal wear and I personally loved every single piece in her collection.  Congratulations Greta I wish you great things and every success!
