In less than seven days now I will be standing in the middle of the Harness Room at Hatfield House and probably feeling something between trepidation and exhilaration.
It has been a moment I have been waiting for and I hope to share the transformation of the barn with you on this blog.
The Stable Yard is the most magical place to visit - even if you aren't looking for a wedding dress, it's still a great day out. Soak up the history and imagine the past as you wander around. It's hard to believe Elizabeth 1 actually walked the same ground.
Heritage Brides was lucky enough to be featured by the Scottish blogger Mrs P and P this week.
We are thrilled that there has been such a positive response to us even before we have opened the doors.

It's getting exciting! Whilst flicking through the pages of Bridal Buyer in advance of the White Gallery, I was delighted to read about Heritage Brides.
With a headline of 'Retail Bliss', I am over the moon that we have been featured.
I have tried to make it a fun experience. I didn’t want it to be chandeliers and fleur de lys, I wanted it to be more rustic to complement the spectacular building we are based in. I suppose you would describe it as a woodland wonderland. The dresses are displayed on grass meadows and there is an overload of flowers everywhere. And of course there is a nod to vintage – anything with heritage!
What is Heritage Brides all about?
For me it was about creating something different for a bride. When I knew that I had got the Harness Room at Hatfield House, I just knew that it would be a magical experience looking for their dream dress.
What makes Heritage Brides different?
The fact that it is the only bridal boutique in the country to be located in a stately home, for me gives it a really romantic air. Knowing that Elizabeth 1 might have walked through the barn 500 years before seemed to fit in exactly with the Heritage Brides philosophy. A wedding dress will always come with heritage because it is part of a personal history.
