LET’s see what our girls have to say...

Opening in 2008 feels like a

lifetime ago now

A LOT’S CHANGED
(INCLUDING MY BODY)


We’re talking fashions, styles, and even our shop design, as well as our amazing team!

Since then we’ve evolved and grown to be able to offer all the brides we get to meet an unrivalled and unquestionably life changing experience.

WE ARE ALL

real women

Surrounded by a lot of love and laughter, we’re always working hard to create genuine moments to celebrate.

We’ll do more than just find you a dress. We will help make you feel the best you’ve ever felt. So you feel excited for what’s to come and love yourself a little bit more than before.

We greet you with warmth and excitement and hug you goodbye with your soul fired up and your heart full. And we believe in bigging women up, with encouragement and praise, so we’ll never dismiss anything or make you feel like you can’t wear something.

None of us are from distinctive backgrounds that suggest we’d be perfect as bridal consultants. Instead we have the caring personality needed for our role.

We are genuine people, with real backgrounds and real bodies!

We are all fixers and we like to make people feel happy, so our days are made by making those around us feel better.

Each of us have slightly different quirks, but fundamentally we all have the same drive. We just love to work with likeminded, supportive women and to pass on the love and support we have for each other, to anyone who walks through our door.

All of my girls I had a gut feeling about. I loved them immediately, they’re all people I adore spending time with and who make my life better and more fulfilling. They support me, tell me I’m being crazy when I am and tell me I’m right when I am! They also tell me off as much as they praise me! Which I need and adore. These girls represent Emily Bridalwear to their core.

EMILY

Random!

I broke my ring finger and now can’t wear my engagement ring or wedding band on the correct finger. So I always get asked with trepidation at the shop, ‘I thought you were married?!’ The naughty person in me does a sad sigh before I reply, just to add to the tension before I explain!

I think I was always destined to run a business, as I have a problem with rules. I find a lot of them don’t make sense. I was always the one at school that would wear odd socks just because I wanted to rebel. But only enough for myself to feel naughty, I didn’t actually like getting told off! I don’t make sense on paper! I definitely have two personalities that conflict with each other, yet at my core is the desire for those around me to be happy and then I can rest and feel settled. I love giving presents more than receiving them, I am an awful receiver! Many a present has been returned for something I actually wanted or liked more. It is now a running joke with my family and friends. I’m terrible at small talk and being polite. I overshare everything, my time, my thoughts, my love, everything except FOOD. Never ever expect to share my food. Try and you’ll meet my 3rd personality that only comes out on a netball court!

DANIELLE

Our Dan, our past bride who one day popped a Facebook post up about wanting to change career and do something creative. I saw that and immediately messaged her! 5 years and a baby later, she’s our go to when it comes to design details! She’s like an elephant when it comes to style codes.

Random!

SHE HAS A PHOBIA OF BIRDS…

or anything related to them including feathers! We couldn’t stock a dress because it had feathers on it. We loved it as well, but we love Dan more!

Emma

Em has travelled Europe for her Husband’s job and as soon as they settled back in her home city of Sheffield she was straight into applying for a role with us. She was that keen she sent me an unfinished CV, but there was something about the way she approached me and her tone, so I invited her in. It felt like we were chatting forever and then she said a phrase that will sit with me forever, “She looked at me like I had taken a sh*t in her kettle.” Who says that in an interview, let alone in real life! I loved her. She’s a clean freak, if you want Emma to get all excited you tell her there is a new zoflora fragrance out. She lives for tidy and clean!

Random!

HOW DID EM’ MEET HER HUSBAND?

She had to go all the way to Magaluf to meet her husband, who also happened to live in Sheffield as well!

Megan

Moved from her small town with her boyfriend, 2 years ago, and joined our crazy crew with so much more confidence and drive than I could ever wish to have. You immediately adore her when you meet her, she is one of those annoyingly lovely girls. But there isn’t anything to dislike about her. I tried finding it, but there isn’t anything there! She has quirks though, weird quirks! She eats poppadoms like crisps, yes you read that right! She dips them into Hummus!

Random!

A PHOBIA OF HOLES!!!

Yep! You heard it right…She has a phobia of holes. Some laces she can’t look at, and don’t even ask her to look at aero bubbles!

GEORGINA

Our G, she would be the first to say a bridal stylist isn’t the first career choice people would choose for her. Yet she’s perfect at it. She’s a proper people person, she reads a room and gets the need for humour at times of stress. She has a way of making a woman just wearing a pair of knickers and heels feel comfortable. George also makes up names for dresses, so far we’ve had French renaissance, Meggy’s dress, Daisy back, Marilyn Monroe, Aztec… Don’t ever ask her to name anything!

Random!

SHE WAS ALWAYS LOOKING TO FIND LOVE…

So she has applied for Love Island a couple of times, sadly ITV weren’t ready for the G unit to be aired on national TV!
