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 12 years old this year and with 19 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 Andrea, Laura and Nikki to Eira I have a team of girls who have done pretty much the distance with me since I opened.

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.

When I am not working in the shops or our meeting my brides in our fitting Atelier, I write for trade magazines and consumer magazines.I also have my own coaching company for small businesses and I am on the judging panel for a few of the industry top award programmes.

ANDREA

ANDREA

Store Manager, Woodstock

Andrea is the main Boss Lady ( store manager) in our new Woodstock boutique and has an avid following of brides who simply adore her calm and knowledgeable approach. She started with me over 7 years ago running our Little Clarendon street boutique and has now moved to our new Woodstock location.  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.
