The EB Team

The shop was born from Emily’s desire to provide brides of South Yorkshire a bridal shop that felt safe, comfortable and had an atmosphere of calmness. Fast forward 8 years and the shop has grown into something that is exactly that and more. “I can’t put into words how I feel about our little wedding haven, it feels like home, yet I am always excited to walk through the door”. Currently taking a back seat from the shop floor, to juggle a 3 month and 3 year old, her presence and influence of Emily is everywhere, you will no doubt be speaking to her via email, facebook or have had her (no doubt at some ridiculous hour) updating your order and reviewing progress. Officially on maternity leave, but never having really left, she can’t keep away. Laura keeps having to send her home. So if you see Emily in the shop or with her face firmly pressed against the window, remind her please that she’s on leave!.
Emily’s partner in crime for quite a few years, you meet this stunning girl and you immediately fall for her. She is unassuming, calm and gentle. But don’t be fooled, without you even knowing she has whipped you into the right dress, accessorised you up and completed your look in a matter of minutes. She has the knack. A very rare thing, she understands people. She gets it. She understands the shy brides, the body conscious brides, she is simply perfect in our eyes. “Working in a bridal shop has always been my career ambition since I was at college. Emily Bridalwear is like my second home. There have been times it would have been simpler to get a fold down bed put in the shop during fittings season. I have a background in textiles so I love texture on a shape, but what really gets me going is precision. A dress has to be made well for me to love it. My current favourites are the new separate from Martina Liana, the freedom to choose a day and a night look is amazing and there is a new Justin Alexander dress that I need to try on, purely for training purposes!”
Our Meg, our little pocket rocket, full of love, with a wonderful outlook and incredibly caring nature.She recently graduated from University of Arts in London with a degree in costume design. To say she is passionate about design, fit and all things textiles is an understatement. Meg has been with us since August 2016 and has settled in brilliantly, she is forever smiling, busying herself with shop duties and making us laugh. Her focus for style and fit has been incredible, she just gets style and what works together. She has a way of finding the right dress for all her brides, any bride is lucky to have an appointment with her, we feel blessed to have her bouncing into the shop every day. Apart from bridal the other love in her life, is her little Nephew, Rudi, if she isn’t showing us a dress or bridal style she loves, it’s a picture of him.
Where to begin with this beautiful person. Married her holiday romance and then spent years travelling Europe with him as he moved from team to team. Did I mention she is a self confessed “HAG” (Ice hockey wife)? Now with a little 2 ½ year old boy and her husband settled in Sheffield, she is now putting down roots and doing things for herself. Hence how we found her. What a find she is. Having experienced the service we offer when her sister got married and bought her dress from us. She has always dreamed of working with us. So when we advertised for another staff member, she immediately applied. So here we are, a clever, thoughtful person, who really listens to what you wants, she takes time to get to know you and helps to create the perfect look for you. She is committed to each and every bride that she sees. An appointment with Emma will be professional, fun and always exceptionally special. Her favourite designer, is Justin Alexander, it has to be, she got married in one of their stunning styles.
Danielle, is currently on Maternity leave, missing her like crazy but are ever so happy to have snuggles with her little baby Jesse, who is gorgeous. It feels weird not having her in the shop, but knowing how quickly time flies she will be back with us very soon.
