Who are 29 Atelier?

Launched in London in 2016, the 29 Atelier label has been making waves ever since. It was set up by Elizabeth Ruddick who originally owned her own bridal boutique before training in couture dress making and tailoring. Spotting a gap in the market for eco-conscious yet seriously stylish bridalwear, the brand was born.

Talking about the label, Elizabeth said, ‘’I wanted to re-think bridalwear. The demand for eco-conscious, British-crafted, contemporary bridalwear is rising and I wanted to meet that by offering brides a stunning collection of gowns inspired by couture. Flattering cuts and beautiful fabrics are at the core of what we do.’’

Every gown is produced locally and ethically, to keep the brand’s carbon footprint as low as possible. And did we mention how stunning they all are?

What is the 29 Atelier style?

Cool, contemporary but with a classic feel, 29 Atelier wedding dresses are right up our street. Ellie is a massive fan, and it’s not hard to see why. The new London in Bloom collection includes chic slip dresses (the wedding dress style for 2023, FYI) and stylish silhouettes, all with the label’s fashionably playful touches. Think oversized bows and fringing.

Super-flattering cuts, the most beautiful of fabrics and a truly original take on eco-conscious bridalwear – we are in love!

Ellie and the team just fell in love with the ethos behind the brand, loving its Britishness and that it represents slow fashion with pieces that can be worn again. Many of the dresses can be made in two piece sets which means the skirts could be worn with boots and a chunky cashmere sweater and the bodices look utterly insane worn with jeans or a floaty summer skirt. Perfect !
