Ingrid Bridal in the Press


“From their bespoke bridal studio in Sheffield, married couple Katie and Adam Barclay cater to brides with romance and revelry in mind, that are keen to err away from complete fairytale dressing. In-Grid launched back in 2020 and the label’s latest haute-couture-technique-celebrating collection focuses on volume and structure, with dreamy puff-sleeve corsetry, blown-up bow details and the fine lines of classicism.”


The Ingrid Bridal Agnes gown was shot by photographer Josh David Payne, to be featured on the front cover of Wallpaper* Magazines first issue of Weddingpaper*, the go to guide for a modern wedding.

"Whether it’s pairing the cool metal hues of a rose gold Patek Philippe watch with the billowing folds of an Ingrid Bridal gown, or juxtaposing a luminescent Mikimoto pearl brooch against the mischievous polka dots of a Dunhill shirt, brides and grooms are sure to find something style wise to love. Wedding guests, too, take note: our chic and sculptural guide to timeless gifting puts the days of mismatched china long behind us, making for a very modern take on wedded bliss."

“An exploration of volume runs throughout the pieces – whether the bell sleeve of the off- the-shoulder ‘Cecily’ gown, or the flared ‘Kahlo’ dress with its hidden millefeuille of tulle ruffles.”



“Founded in 2020 by married couple Katie and Adam Barclay – the former a creative director and stylist, the latter a still-life photographer and set designer – In-Grid Bride has a focus on unexpected silhouettes which eschew the frou-frou conventions of traditional wedding dressing. ‘It’s about shaking off that princess vibe of the wedding dress,’ Katie previously told Wallpaper*. ‘Precision and meticulous craftsmanship; post-modern, structured silhouettes, executed through traditional couture,’ describe the brand of the label’s hallmarks, continued in the new collection for 2023. An exploration of volume runs throughout the pieces – whether the bell sleeve of the off-the-shoulder ‘Cecily’ gown, or the flared ‘Kahlo’ dress with its hidden millefeuille of tulle ruffles. Each of the Made in England gowns are bespoke, fitted in the brand’s in-house atelier in Sheffield. “


“Shirting forms the reliable base layer of many womens’ wardrobes, but would you wear the hard-working staple to marry in? British shirt brand Ingrid is vying to elevate button-downs to bride-worthy pieces, and is doing a sterling job. Humbly titled the Oversized Long Shirt Dress, its first bridal piece, intended to blur the line between evening and bridal wear, builds on the same meticulous precision as its shirts (hence the brand’s mathematical name).

Made from voluminous-yet-soft woven cotton, the sweeping silhouette makes it more of a shirt gown, than a dress. And to give the functional fabric bridal status, customers must book a fitting appointment, and have a disposable budget of £1,350.

Though you could justify the bridal look with costs per wear, In-grid’s other shirting is no less as luxurious, and a snip of the price tag. A chic option for brides who don’t want fuss and frippery on their big day, or perhaps are looking for a greener option away from the sequinned, feather-trimmed offerings in the bridal market.”


“Run by engaged couple Katie and Adam, Ingrid offers unconventional wedding dresses, crafted in England. The label, which initially specialised in white shirts, has slowly but surely expanded into the bridal world. We get to know the designer couple behind the house.”
