Meet the Team
Ellie Sanderson, Oxford Boutique
Andrea, Store Manager
Andrea is the main Boss Lady ( store manager) in our Oxford boutique. Andrea has an avid following of brides who simply adore her calm and knowledgeable approach. She is first in every day and last out every night, she is also partial to bossing Ellie around especially if she dares touch any of her admin!
Andrea is known for her tidiness and ever so slightly ‘control freak’ nature. We can forgive her, however, as it’s all wrapped around a heart of gold. Our brides utterly love her honest approach and her genuine motherly care for each and every one of them. She is no newcomer to the Bridal Industry and knows more than anyone about each and every designer and dress we sell.
Choose Andrea as your stylist if you want someone who can guide you gently, who has a classical style and bags of knowledge for creating “one off “dresses.
Andrea would only confirm her husband but when we pushed she buckled and giggled Gary Barlow. Terry looks like you are going to be traded in.
She won’t tell us but we reckon its Terrys Chocolate Orange.
Jenna, Sales Consultant
Jenna joined us a few years ago now and during her interview calmly managed a small shop crisis like a true professional. Job offered on the spot, we absolutely love her. Training to be a mid-wife during the week and working with us at the weekend is no mean feat. Personally I couldn’t think of anyone more suited to either role. Jenna is calm, kind and totally lovely. She has a super knowledge of all things wedding and knows our collection like the back of her hand.
Jenna is also one of the authors for the Ellie Sanderson blog and when she is not delivering babies, helping brides then she can be found writing articles for the Ellie Sanderson blog. What a girl!

A very healthy blend of Red wine and Dark Chocolate.
Alison, Sales Consultant
Alison is relatively new to Ellie Sanderson although she is certainly not new the wedding world. She has many, many years of experience dealing with brides and grooms meaning she has a wealth of knowledge to share. She is also a mummy five times over and only looks 35. All I am saying is she must have got married very young.
Alison has a warm and gentle approach and is totally brilliant if you are feeling a little nervous about your consultation, she is full of fabulous styling ideas and will coax you to try on dresses she knows will look incredible on you. She is utterly smitten with our wonderful Suzanne Neville collection and I suspect she has secretly tried on most of them!

Becci, Sales Consultant
Becci is just gorgeous and we love her gentle manner, kind heart and desperate need to always wear a tiara whilst working. She is a typical girlie girl and for that we love her and all things pink around her. Becci has been with Ellie for four years and arrived only weeks after her own Wedding.
She is a massive fan of a fabulous ball gown wedding dresses and, being of model size, she is often seen trying them on for staff training.
Becci also works her little socks off making sure Oxford’s shop windows stop the traffic in Little Clarendon St. She also loves to work on our fitting day and is brilliant offering advice on styling and calming any nerves.
Becci is mum to two adorable little tots, Freddie and Ella Sky and we are so happy she is in Team Sanderson.
Choose Becci if you are looking for a stylist with heaps of experience all wrapped around a romantic fairytale style.
