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.
How would you describe the boutique?
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!
