I believe in what we do at Emily Bridalwear, I joined Emily 7 years ago just as she was building the brand. I run the day to day aspects of the shop floor and orders and everything else thrown in. Sometimes it feels like you need 8 arms but it never gets dull. I wouldn't dream of working anywhere else, Emily has got me for life, I adore everything the company stands for, what we offer brides is personal and something that I am deeply passionate about.
One of my favourite parts of my role is seeing the shy, unable to really like herself bride, flourish into a beautiful woman who suddenly accepts herself and realises that she is worthy and she is beautiful. Enabling women to see the good things in themselves is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.
I have in the past struggled with my own self doubt, so I get it completely.
When I am not in the shop, I like to be outdoors walking my Cocker Spaniel Alfie and spending time with my boyfriend. I am, after a neck injury trying to get back into weight training. So if you see me hobbling about, its probably because it was leg day yesterday!
My advice to my brides is.... Believe those that love you and those you trust when they tell you something nice, take the compliment and don't dismiss it. We all have hang ups, but sometimes are own hang ups are just that, only ours. Others don't even notice them.
