Gown Styles...
Empire gowns


An empire line is a traditional and slimming silhouette – great for petite figures.  The under bust line with elongate your figure and legs.  An empire line gown is perfect for a more relaxed or destination wedding.  Many of our gowns featuring this silhouette are soft and floaty gowns, some with a silk georgette overlay that is lovely.

Karen Willis Holmes – Ashley with 3D Flower Belt

The ‘Ashley’ gown is a stunning silk georgette gown, with georgette twisted and ruched on the bodice, finished with a v-shape strap that draws the eye to your décolletage.  With a soft flowing skirt, it is perfect when accessorised with a sash or belt to cinch in and define the waist.


For something a little different, why not try a silver ribbon like we have, and add a diamante brooch for some sparkle?  



Karen Willis Holmes – ‘Kate’ gown

The ‘Kate’ is beautiful in its simplicity, with silk georgette ribbons draped in a criss-cross pattern across the bust, that meet at the centre front and fall.  ‘Kate’ also features hand-beaded crystals at the bust for a delicate embellishment.

Greta’ gown

The ‘Greta’ gown is another empire gown perfect for your day.  This v-neck slinky 1930’s inspired silk satin bridal gown with bodice and front drape detail and bias skirt is finished with shoulder and front diamante detailing.

Also be inspired with some of our Real Brides...
