We are really excited to announce our new relationship with 29 Atelier, a brand that offers ‘British Luxury for the Eco Conscious Bride’
We are one of a handful of UK stockists who have the pleasure of sharing this beautiful collection with you. 29 Atelier was created in 2016 by Elizabeth Ruddick who started her career as a young entrepreneur with her own bridal boutique before going on to train at the University for the Creative Arts where she honed her skills in design and couture dress making and tailoring.
“I wanted to re-think bridal wear. The demand for eco-conscious, British crafted, contemporary bridal wear is rising and I wanted to meet this demand offering brides a stunning collection of gowns inspired by couture. Flattering cuts and beautiful fabrics are at the core of what we do.’’
With a deep love of bridal wear Elizabeth created her own atelier in London.
Why 29 Atelier?
When I first met Elizabeth earlier this year I was struck by her aura: the way she spoke about her craft, her designs and the passion she had not only for her collections but the industry as a whole. We instantly connected.
Her dresses are absolutely beautiful. We were looking for a collection that would suit a bride looking for a more relaxed look but still felt bridal – and 29 Atelier does that perfectly.
I was also drawn to Elizabeth’s approach to sustainability. This is more important that ever, and we all need to ensure we are playing our part to lead more sustainable lives. Weddings, being one time events, can often be seen as unsustainable, however there are things brides can do to change this. Understanding how your dress is manufactured is a good start.
“My passion for sustainability and the environment is the thread for everything I do,” Elizabeth says. “As the business has grown, I now outsource my production, using a social enterprise in North London that strives to fly the flag for local slow fashion. I am mindful of every element that goes into my designs, favouring natural and recycled fabrics and trims where possible but never compromising on quality.”
We have handpicked the design from the collections that we truly believe you, our brides, will love. Options that allow you to mix & match and create a look that is versatile and can be changed throughout your day. Our full collection can be viewed here
Continuing our mission

When you come to us and buy from a British designer, not only are you purchasing a gown from the very designer who dreamt it up. You are buying in to a much more personal service whereby you can influence the design itself.
We offer a service in an intimate setting where we really get to know you. All gowns are made to measurements taken by ourselves and any final tweaks and alterations can be made by our in house seamstress.
