Each designer I work with is handpicked for their brilliance and for their unbending desire to deliver the best quality, fit and cut. I am proud to buy a lot of British designers, but buying from across the globe gives us a diverse range of dresses and I have designers from Spain, New York, Hong Kong and Ukraine. Some totally exclusive to us.
I couldn’t talk about Ellie Sanderson and not mention my girls! Some have been with me from the start and others joined along the way. Each and every one of my girls is handpicked for their personal style and great personality. Ranging in ages from 20 something to 50 something we have a stylist for every age and style of bride.
Although we are a mixed bunch of glam girls we all have one thing that binds us together. We are utterly obsessed with luxurious wedding dresses, unique customer experiences and we love a happy ending.
HELLO, this is me , ELLIE
This is the page where I tell you a bit about me and how we got here. I promise not to bore. So, I opened Ellie Sanderson in Beaconsfield in 2007, Oxford in 2010 and then moved Oxford to my dream location in Woodstock at the end of 2019. I just love the space we have there as its uber cool.
14 years on I am happy to say that Ellie Sanderson bridal is a brides “must visit” in Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire, especially for brides seeking a luxurious experience. Fashion retail is in my veins and selling a modern edit of exclusive designer wedding dresses is what we do.
My boutiques have become rather famous in the wedding world, winning dozens of awards, topped off last year when we won the UK’s top longstanding Bridal retailer. That’s top longstanding bridal shop in the whole of the UK, even I have to say it twice for it to sink in.
Ellie Sanderson, I have to say is not a happy accident. When I left my senior corporate job I had a clear and determined vision. I was going to launch a bridal business that sold some of the worlds top designer wedding dresses and become the destination for brides seeking a luxury experience. Styling brides from London to Warwick. And that is exactly what we have done, except now we have girls coming from Leeds, Ireland and beyond.
I am often asked to describe my collection, and I say it is different in our two locations. Woodstock is more chilled and relaxed whilst Beaconsfield is full of beautiful modern classics. The collection is everthing but ordinary. We don’t do run of the mill or bridal uniforms here.
