Kel

Kel has always been interested in sewing even from a young age when she would make little clothes for her dolls on a childrens sewing machine. Kel completed her Certificate IV and Diploma in apparel manufacturing and soon found herself drawn to the Bridal industry. Kel moved to the Central Coast from Newcastle and opened her first shop in Woy Woy in 2000. Outgrowing the shop in Woy Woy Kel eventually moved the business to the current location at East Gosford where she continues to create dream wedding gowns for her many happy clients.

Kel Says: "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, taking the dog for a walk, going to the beach and travelling.
