meet THE GIRLS
SO YOU SAID YES!
Congratulations from me and my girls and thank you for stopping by. So many people ask me how I got into the wedding business and I will give you the answer I give them. My obsession started when I was a small child, I would spend hours sketching and drawing princesses in wedding dresses, I was utterly nuts for all things wedding.
Sketching dresses still happens now in my boutiques, we work so closely with our hand picked designers that we are able to offer bespoke design changes so that every brides dress is truly unique.
I really do have the best job ever, I get to travel the world to curate our exclusive collection of dresses. I am proud to sell a fair few British designers and a wonderful edit of the worlds finest.
The designers we choose to work with all have one thing in common, their dresses are exquisitely made, ethically sourced and the provenance of every item in my boutiques is a big deal for me – in fact a HUGE deal for me.
Ellie Sanderson is 13 years old this year and with 20 National awards under our belt for excellence I am really proud of my girls. Each and every one of them has been hand picked for their personalities and brilliant style.
From Miss Bea to Laura, Claire to Kirsty and Ruby lou to Sarah. I have a team of girls who have done pretty much the distance with me, and so many of them were brides I just kept!
Me and the girls are utterly detail-obsessed and love what we do.
Each and every bride we treasure and are proud to help on her wedding dress journey. We are a small family run business and we love it that way and so do our brides. I am totally hands on in every aspect of what we do at Ellie Sanderson.
Each and every bride we treasure and are proud to help on her wedding dress journey.
Claire joined team Sanderson as Beaconsfield Boss in October of 2018. She is no newcomer to the wedding world though as she has over 10 years bridal experience. Claire married last year and YES she choose ES for her wedding dress which was a Suzanne Neville. Claire joined the team when she returned from her honeymoon, we wanted her to be an ES bride before she became the boss! She is now Ellie’s right hand woman.
She is totally adored and loved by all our brides for her down to earth straight talking. Claire is always full of beans and always has a big smile. Her mood is totally relaxed which is a good thing, especially working with Ellie who goes at everything at 200 miles an hour. We love her and it really does feel like she has been with us for ages.
Choose Claire if you want an honest and fun appointment.

Kirsty is our newest team member but she has been in Ellies Wedding club for almost 4 years now. In fact Kirsty and Ellie first met when Kirsty became and Ellie Bride, we loved her so much we begged her to join our team.
Kirsty is a natural stylist, she is so good and gets your style in a heartbeat – we all watch on as her brides seem to buy the first dress she chooses for them. Born to do this job, she is quiet, calm but totally on it. Kirsty works one day in the week and at weekends, when she’s not styling our brides she is mummy to her two darling little girls. She really is wonder woman and we are glad she joined us.
Choose Kirsty if you need someone who can really help style you and suggest some great dresses for your figure.
