The day you say ‘yes!’ is just the beginning. From that life-changing moment on there’ll be lots to plan and plenty of exciting decisions to make. At the heart of it all will be your wedding gown – and I’m here to make sure you find the dress of your dreams.
Every bride-to-be is different – some have been looking forward to wedding dress shopping since they were small, while others find it a bit more of a daunting prospect.
Coming from a background in fashion merchandising and having worked in a bridal boutique for eight years, my aim and passion is to make sure every bride goes away happy with a dress they look and feel amazing in.
VIP appointments in a stunning barn conversion
You should be able to indulge in and enjoy every second of your wedding experience and when it comes to dress shopping, this starts as soon as you arrive at our beautiful boutique set within a stunning countryside barn conversion.
I offer an exclusive VIP experience by appointment only. That means that when you come in, there will only be you, me and any friends and family you want to bring to share your special moment. I am focussed solely on you and finding the dress of your dreams.
We’ll start with a glass of fizz and a chat while you get a feel for the different types of dresses available.
More than 80 wedding dresses to choose from
I have more than 80 dresses in stock supplied by carefully-selected designers. Whether you’ve seen a dress you like from one of our designers, have a scrap book of pictures, or haven’t got a clue where to start – I’ll be your personal shopper for the duration of your appointment.
You’ll be free to browse the collections and pick out some dresses you like the look of and give them a try. If you’re happy for me to, I’ll pick out some that I think will look good and, through a process of elimination of certain styles, we’ll find ‘the one’ for you (aside from your betrothed of course!).
We also have bridesmaids dresses, so you can get your whole bridal party sorted.
On site alterations
The beauty of Charlotte Baker Bridal Wear is that we have Elsie May Bridal just next door for all wedding dress alterations. This is key because it means that if she is available she can come through and see what needs altering then and there. We’ll all be able to look at it together and get a date booked in for the first fitting.
Elsie May has more than 20 years of experience and can advise what alterations are needed to ensure you look and feel great in your dress – and the fitting can really make or break a gown.
We are incredibly fortunate to have a seamstress we trust and who knows our dresses inside out just next door, so your dress won’t even have to go very far.
With our tranquil and relaxing settings, dozens of stunning dresses and your own personal shopper – we are ready and waiting for you.
We’re also about to launch our extended afternoon tea appointment – check back here for details in the very near future.
