Coco & Kate is one of the few bridal boutiques that really lives up to the hype. By ‘hype’, I mean the magical place you envisage upon getting engaged…where wedding dress dreams are made.
Nestled in the quaint village of Hatton in Warwickshire (we saw an actual peacock majestically roaming the cobbles on our approach), Coco & Kate is everything a bridal boutique should be: welcoming, intimate, and superbly stylish.
I’m a self-confessed girlie-girl, and everything — from the exquisitely-scented candles and cute-as-a-button cupcakes, to the delicate blush roses and deliciously pink Prosecco — spoke to my love of all things feminine. What’s more, Sophie (owner extraordinaire) is the epitome of warmth. She welcomed us with a hug and a smile, and I love people who hug and smile.
As soon as we walked through the door, we were made to feel effortlessly at home. Sophie guided us through the rows of exquisite dresses (but left us free to browse in the most leisurely of ways), brought us bubbles (and kept them topped up throughout our visit), and never once made me feel rushed (vital when you are prancing around playing princesses with a tiara on your head and a smile on your face).
Stockists of Watters, Anna Campbell, Martina Liana, Love Marley, and the inimitable Hayley Paige (I was lucky enough to be the first to try on the new ‘Dori’ gown — it’s a stunner), there really is something to delight every bride. And the accessories are to die for — think blinging jewellery, divine veils, breathtaking headpieces and stunning shoes.
So if you’re a bride-to-be looking for a wedding dress to wow, I can’t recommend this delightful bridal boutique highly enough. Thank you Coco and Kate; you rock!
Love Emma xxx
