YOU LOVE BRIDAL FASHION AND WANT THE FREEDOM OF RUNNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS?

But you also want the guidance of an experienced business mentor.

You may be looking to run your own retail business that’s reliant on face to face client interaction. A business with high levels of client care that simply can’t be bought online.

You may be keen to work in the fashion industry but are repelled by “fast fashion” and want to centre your career around luxury goods.

You may even be looking to swap your corporate lifestyle for one with flexible working hours to fit your family life without compromising your salary ( this is exactly what Ellie did).

Or you may simply crave a new and exciting career opportunity, making people happy, making money, working in a great team and getting away from 9am -7pm and feeling alive again!

All of this is achievable with an Ellie Sanderson Franchise.

WE INSPIRE and excite our brides with INSPIRATIONAL DRESSES

We’ve won so many awards that I couldn’t possibly list them all but here are just a few highlights which we are very proud of.

  • WINNER – THE ENGLISH WEDDING AWARDS 2016

The brand is so much more than simply selling wedding dresses. It’s about creating memories for the bride, supporting with honest advice when requested, offering options, taking the time to get to know the bride, her goals and ambitions for her big day. All of this is underpinned by great business systems and processes and Ellies desire to bring the latest, hottest and “current” product into her boutiques.
