Kel's Story

 


I have always had the "passion for fashion" which became a reality after obtain I obtained my diploma in apparel manufacturing.

I have always been interested in Bridal fashion and I started Kel-Leigh Couture from home in 2000 where I started to design and create wedding dresses. Mainly through word of mouth Kel-Leigh Couture started to get much busier and I decided to take the big leap and move into a vacant shop at Woy Woy.

During my time at home and at Woy Woy I entered into various fashion competitions in the Bridal and Formal categories. My confidence grew when my designs made the finalist and even winning awards.

I am always thrilled when Brides trust me to design their wedding dress. Listening to the Brides and what the picture lets me create the perfect gown for them.

Not every Bride can picture a finished dress or has the budget for a couture gown. I wanted to give every Bride the Kel-Leigh Couture customer service so I moved to my current location at East Gosford and started to stock ready to wear gowns from established designers on the rack. I even created a budget conscience label called Kayelle which is still available exclusively at the store.

I would also like give a big thank you to Andrew from Impact Images who is always ready to go to photograph our new gowns

The best part about my job is meeting wonderful people, helping them design their perfect wedding dress and seeing the smile on their face at the final fitting. That's what makes my job perfect. When I first started in the business I would regularly see the bride-to-be and sometimes her family crying. I thought I had done something wrong but after the tears subside they all tell me how happy they are and can't help crying because everything is so perfect. I am very lucky to be doing what I do with the support and love from my team."

When Kel is not at Kel-Leigh Couture creating beautiful gowns and helping beautiful brides she loves to socialise with friends and family, travelling and making time to relax whenever she can

After obtaining my Diploma in Event Management I started working at a Bridal Store in Canberra as a lead into event management but quickly fell in love with the Bridal Industry and helping Brides find their dream gown.

After moving to the Central Coast I was offered a wonderful opportunity to work at Kel-Leigh Couture. The amazing gowns we have and to see how much care they put into each  gown is something I'm very lucky to experience.

I love being able to help brides feel amazing with something that is such a special thing and I love surprising them with designs they may not have thought to try on.

I take pleasure with the responsibility of looking after the showroom and the friendship of the Kel-Leigh Couture family.

Outside of work I love being with my family and socialising with my friends.

FAQ's

 

 

Do I need an appointment to visit Kel-Leigh Couture?

You are always welcome to visit Kel-Leigh Couture and an appointment is recommended so one of our Bridal consultants can give you the attention you deserve. Contact us on 4321 0137 to book an appointment or email us at info@kel-leigh.com.au or message kel-leigh couture through facebook.

What should I expect from my appointment?

Out appointments last around one hour where the consultant will ask you on your preferences. You and the consultant will start selecting dresses for you to try on. We are committed to giving you relevant and honest advice

What should I bring to my appointment?

It is helpful to bring someone you trust with you. We advise one or two people as this makes for a more relaxed and informative experience. We also advise that bringing small children with you can make the experience stressful and distracting.

For your initial appointment we advise you to wear a strapless bra. For fittings you will need to bring the shoes you will be wearing on the big day.

What if I am planning on losing weight before my wedding?

We always order your gown the size at the time of ordering. A dress can be more easily reduced in size by our expert alteration
