meet THE GIRLS
So you said… YES!
Congratulations on your engagement from me and my girls, this is such an exciting time for you right now. I am so happy you are on my site and if you are here you are checking out me and the team, thank you x
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 what I consider to be some of the best designers in the world, all handpicked by me.
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 15 years old this year and with 22 National awards under our belt for excellence, I am really proud of my girls for this amazing achievement. Each and every one of them has been hand picked for their personalities and brilliant style.
From Alex to Laura, Elena, Kirsty, Clare, Lucy and Holly, 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.
Each and every bride we treasure and are proud to help on her wedding dress journey.
Business Manager Beaconsfield and Woodstock
Sarah has been with Ellie for a number of years now, but as a Saturday girl , you may have already met her. She is wedding dress obsessed, and so she just needed to be closer to our dresses.
With a similar corporate retail background to Ellie she was an obvious choice to fill the new role of Business Manager for both studios.
She was an Ellie Bride a few years ago when she married her gorgeous Michael and actually came to the shop on the morning of her wedding to get ready. Crazy chic.
Full of fun and energy Sarah is just brilliant and finding girls the right dress in a heartbeat. She is a self confessed romantic and her dream dress is S.J.P in Vivienne Westwood.
Laura has been with Ellie for 14 years, starting as a Saturday girl and progressing to Store manager. Laura has two gorgeous little boys and now in Burnham running the production and fittings side of Ellie Sanderson for both of our studios.
Talking at two hundred miles an hour and with eyes in the back of her head, Laura misses nothing and we would all be lost without her. Laura will check every tiny detail for all our brides-to-be and she ensures that everything runs smoothly from the point you buy your dress through the the final collection
