This business has been in the pipeline for years, but life and time got in the way. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do as we both love fashion and a bloomin’ good wedding.

In the middle of the pandemic, we both re-evaluated everything and decided now was the right time to pursue the dream of owning our very own luxury bridal boutique.

Carrie, working within the hair and make-up industry has been involved in the wedding sector for over 20 years. Sadie’s background is numbers, working as an accountant she’s the number cruncher but is also a massive fashionista!

We’re both lovers of fashion, a well-cut dress and Sadie’s love for shoes, bags and accessories is something else. But we also both appreciate how confident you can feel in the right outfit.
