Since we launched the ‘elena ferrara couture’ label in 2016, we have been dressing the coolest brides across the country with our modern and fun bridal dresses and bridal separates.
in 2018, we were thrilled to be part of the new talents area of the white gallery where we showcased our brand new spring 19 collection 'Blossom', which we were noted as “fast becoming the one to watch” the collection has since proved to be popular with our forward thinking modern brides.
** we are proudly flying the flag for the cool British bridal industry **
Our emphasis is on combining classic tailoring with a contemporary twist, of course, high quality craftsmanship. We have in insane love for fabrics; we love nothing more than finding unusual fabrics, textures and colours and incorporating them into our collections.
our dresses have been designed to emphasis the versatility of mixing and matching across all the collections. We are giving our brides the freedom to have fun and play with layering up, if they wish, choosing to mix the dresses, separates and accessories together to express their own unique style.
the whole collection is skillfully designed and created within our brand new atelier in the heart of York.
with a mixed Mediterranean heritage, I come from a family of very skilled tailors and dress makers so it was inevitable that I too was going to follow this creative path. I have always been artistic, sewing from a very young age and throughout my entire life.
after finishing with a degree in fashion design at the London College of Fashion I worked both in and out of the creative industry, and eventually fulfilled my love for bridal when I began designing and making pretty flower girl dresses in 2008.
making dresses for little girls was great fun, and the dresses proved to be very successful and hugely popular. but it wasn’t until I started a family that I knew that I really needed to chase my dreams. my dream to create my own bridal label. It’s taken a couple of years in the making but here we are now.....
