Dream Weddings magazine

Ah, Tina, we will miss you...In 2014 an opportunity came my way and I realised the dream of opening a bridal shop. Our aim was always to build a reputation for exceptional customer service and attention to detail and as a team we soon reached our goal.

Over the past 3 and a half years we have had the privilege of helping hundreds of bride’s find their wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses and suited and booted lots of grooms and their groomsmen.

However, with the lease on our premises soon to expire and the need to spend more time with my husband, family and live a simpler life, I have made the very difficult and somewhat emotional decision to close our beautiful boutique by the end of the year.

It has been an honour and a privilege to work alongside my incredible team, past and present. We have laughed and cried happy tears along with our brides and have achieved everything we set out to do when we opened the boutique.

Continuing our standard for a high level of customer service we have contacted all of our current customers and notified them of our closure and reassurance that their orders will be fulfilled before we close our doors for the final time.

I would like to thank each and every bride and groom who has come through our doors and my super lovely husband without whom I could never have made the dream a reality.

I am now offering all my beautiful samples and stock at hugely discounted prices. (Post to follow)

Thank you again for all your love and support over the years.
Tina x ❤️💗❤️
