LK Bespoke Bridal

For designer Lisa Keating, corsets are not to be hidden away - they’re the focus!  Lisa’s been making bespoke bridalwear and handmade corsets for over 24 years and is known for her beautiful creations.

LK Bespoke Bridal corsets are to be worn and seen as outer garments – perfect for a vintage style wedding!  The corset will enhance your natural shape, provide an elegant posture and they can even reduce your waistline by 7 inches! Lisa bases each individual corset on historical patterns, but adapts them for a more comfortable modern fit. 

This year, Lisa’s been busy creating her very own bridal collection. Featuring corsets, bridal skirts, lingerie corsets, eveningwear and boudoir accessories, she’ll be bringing along the full range to the Fair in March.

While this is Lisa’s first collection, each item is still ‘bespoke’, with the bride able to choose her own fabrics.  The bridal skirts can be made to coordinate with your corset too and each corset is individual and tailored to you. Whether you’re looking for a classic, elegant, theatrical or vintage look, everything is made to measure and developed from her love and knowledge of fashion history. Whilst each bespoke item is of an incredibly high standard, they can be made in as little as a few days and are surprisingly affordable.


Lisa is incredibly talented and when she’s not designing, she’s teaching corsetry at Heart Space Studios and running Vintage Hen Parties where brides to be and guests use traditional techniques to make their own garters or Bridesmaids favours, whilst they sip champagne from vintage teacups. 

For some more inspiration take a look at Lisa’s website.  You can also find her on Facebook, Pinterest or have a read of her blog, but do make sure you come and see her brand new collection at the Fair!
