When it came to choosing her wedding dress Kate tried on only 7 or 8 gowns before her sister spotted a beauty in Gracie Bleu Bridal, Matlock. The two sisters had seen this particular gown in a bridal magazine and when Kate tried it on she knew it was the one. A brooch on the back of the dress that Kate designed herself completed her look and she even made all of her wedding jewellery by recycling family pieces with bits that she had found in charity shops.
Kate’s two sisters, Chloe and Sophie along with Andrew’s sister Lisa were all bridesmaids on the big day. The couple also had a little flowergirl called Ciara who was three at the time. The bridesmaids wore midnight blue coloured dresses which were custom made by Kay Hobson Bridal Design, in Belper. Kate and the girls designed them together so they were a real collaboration of everyone’s ideas. Ciara’s dress was covered in sparkly embroidery and had a midnight blue sash to match the older bridesmaids.
