about ELLIE

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 80% British designers but I also have one other very special Spanish label.  

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 are 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.

ps Left to right are three of my darling girls – Sophie, Jenna and Charlie.


I opened 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 and of course Beaconsfield will always be my baby.

13 years on I am proud to say that Ellie Sanderson has become THE must visit bridal shop in the home counties. My little brand has also become quite famous in the wedding world, winning dozens of awards topped off last year when we won the UKs top longstanding Bridal retailer – that was a very proud night!

People ask me to describe my collection of dresses and the words I use are  modern luxury. My collection is made up of  high quality styles designed by the worlds top wedding dress designers. The collection I have is for a discerning bride who appreciates luxurious fabrics, incredible pattern cutting and who knows she wants to wear something that is different and certainly not run of the mill. 

Without question your wedding dress should be the most fabulous dress you ever wear and one that totally captures your style and makes you feel just incredible.
