I seem to have spent years with a vision running round my head. I wanted to create a bridal boutique that was fun, had the wow factor and gave brides an experience they won't forget.
When we opened the doors on Tuesday, I think I can safely say that Heritage Brides has turned out even better than I hoped it would.
The barn looks magical and provides the most enchanting setting for the stunning dresses. With the vintage bits and pieces I have been collecting over the years, it really represents a piece of my heritage.
My Nan's tea set is on a window sill, my grandmother's doilies (which I hated as a child) fit in perfectly and we also have a vintage sewing machine from Darren's family. Not only that everything has been filled with love and support, not just from family but from my lovely friends who have been there when I have questioned what I was doing.
In the last few days, I have had nothing but positive comments and encouragement which has made me all the more determined to make Heritage Brides a success.
I do hope you will join me on this woodland adventure which really is my dream come true.
Finding brides gorgeous gowns by embracing the past with a view to the future.
