What's your background and why did you launch your business?
I launched my beautiful bridal business back in September 2014 and I've never looked back! Having worked for two major world airlines in a customer-facing capacity for most of my career, and having a family retail background, bridal was always a passion of mine, which I pursued at the right time for my family.
During the Summer of 2014, the perfect premises presented itself in my hometown of Holmfirth, and I was able to launch my business in the September of 2014. It has continued to grow and we moved to larger premises in October 2018 just a few doors down, which has been an extension of my incredible journey helping brides and bridesmaids to find their perfect dresses.
What's your favourite style of wedding dress?
I am a classic girl at heart with a love of romance and happy endings and so my favourite wedding dress is the timeless ballgown style with a structured bodice and delicate detail - nothing too fussy! The wedding dress should be an extension of a bride's natural beauty and a reflection of her individual style and personality.
What's your top tip for couples planning their wedding?
Enjoy the journey! Don't get stressed, and make sure that everything you plan for is what the two of you want, and you haven't been pressured into anything. It's your celebration of your love for one another!
What's the most common question you get asked by couples?
The most common question I am asked by brides in the bridal boutique is "How will I know it's the dress?" I answer that it's important to have an open mind and try on different styles, you will know it's the one when you have it on. As well as the dress looking beautiful, there is always an emotional attachment to a dress! You may not necessarily cry, but there will be a strong reaction!
