Owner & Seamstress
Stephanie's core inspiration and skills are derived from her Grandmother who was a dressmaker. Stephanie began working in bridal shops at the age of 15 years old and from here her imagination grew. Stephanie worked her way up to a Bridal Advisor, furthering to fittings and then a competent bridalwear seamstress in her early years.
During this time Stephanie completed a National Diploma in Textiles at the Hereford Collage of Art and Design following onto a BA(Hons) degree in Fashion Design at the University of Wales, Newport.
Stephanie Kyles Bridal was Established in 2012 where Stephanie worked as a freelance dressmaker and seamstress, and then in April 2021 opened the Outlet, Reloved and alterations studio in a beautiful barn conversion on the outskirts of Hereford.
Emma was an official SKB bride herself several years ago and instantly fell in love with all things bridal. She jumped at the chance to join the team at the beginning of this year, and we've no idea how we managed without her for such a long time.
She has an abundance of skills, including being super organised and a huge interest in fashion and bridal styling and has amazing skill with helping you find 'the one'.
Assistant Seamstress (& Stephs mum)
Many of you wont see Rosemary but she deserves her spotlight on the team page. Rosemary is a retired landscape gardener but naturally has the sewing genes inherited from the family, and has been helping behind the scenes assisting Steph with the sewing work for some time now. She is a wizz at making fabric covered buttons and creates some spectacular veils. If you notice any flowers pots outside the studio, thats also her work!
Stephanie was the Herefordshire finalist for The Dan Marshal Creativity award in the Matrimony Awards 2019.
She was Herefordshire finalist for Bridalwear Pre-loved / Handmade Category and also the Sweet Beginnings Special Touches award in the Matrimony Awards 2020.
And finalist for Herefordshire and overall winner for Best Bridalwear Pre-loved /Handmade Category in the Matrimony awards 2021.
