Wedding Dresses for Real Brides...

Wedding dresses for real brides - this month's Power User prize will prove that plus-size brides don't have to compromise or blow the budget when it comes to finding a beautiful wedding dress for their big day. Specialising in providing retail, bespoke and couture plus size wedding dresses for brides from sizes 12-26, and budgets between £500 and £1,500, Kemi Boutique's Kemi Farquharson will provide one lucky UKbride with a customised Callista wedding dress from her Pret à Porter gown in this month's Power User competition...

Wedding dresses are usually photographed on skinny models in exotic locations, but with a UK average dress size of 16, designer Kemi Farquharson wanted to provide a range of retail, bespoke and couture dresses for real women with curves.

After a career in business and finance, Kemi struggled to find a plus-size wedding dress when she was planning her day. So Kemi decided to set up her own business, Kemi Boutique, and one lucky UKbride Power User will win a dream wedding dress from Kemi's Pret à Porter range this month!

Kemi Boutique collection caters for women of all shapes and sizes from a UK size 12 to size 26, with budgets from £500-£1,500. Her London boutique provides a unique personalised shopping experience for brides-to-be who visit her from all over the UK.

Her latest collection has had international interest from London, to Lagos, to Brazil. Curvy Brides worldwide have welcomed the Plus Size Designer who caters for their feminine silhouette with a very personal service.

“I am often asked 'why plus size wedding dresses?' well, I am a curvy woman and have been a bride. When I was looking for my wedding dress I noticed that there were few boutiques that catered for my size or lacked warmth when serving a plus size bride. So, I decided to make a career change and offer a personable service for women with curves. My current collection is inspired by travel and culture. I wanted to reflect creativity of life and love in a gown, so my collection is infused with colour and features delicate hand finishing.”

Kemi's approach is really popular with her brides who love not just her beautiful designs, but her approach to reflecting what looks great on real-size brides. The designer has even launched an online magazine, the UK's first plus size bridal magazine, which is available on her website along with her collections.

For more information on Kemi, her London based boutique and her retail, bespoke and couture dresses, visit her at Trident Business Centre on Bickersteth Road London SW17 9SH, call 020 3070 2910 or see
