There are two things I look for in wedding dresses above everything else: unique, handmade designs and independent boutiques. Mass market bridalwear isn’t for me. I’m the same with music: I look for something incredible and creative, beautiful and just a little bit different, something most people haven’t discovered yet…
One Welsh boutique is leading the way with bridal design that breaks the mould
Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique attracts brides from across the UK and is fast becoming a hub for beautiful handmade dresses. The boutique stocks exciting and creative local designers Amy Mair Couture, Angharad Mullooly, Claire Hill Designs, E&W Couture, Kate Barlow and Helen Rhiannon.
Amy Mair Couture offers a signature style of subtle glamour. Her dresses offer a sharp execution in fit and a structure with a balance of flowing movement in fabrics, with a bohemian or alternative charm. E&W Couture is also committed to offering something a little different for the alternative personality. With a signature style that combines simple cuts with elaborate embellishments she creates elegant, flattering and fashion forward designs.
The Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique is based at 2 Victoria Bridge Penarth and is open Tuesday – Saturday 10am-6pm. To book an appointment call 02920 709 701 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming from a theatrical background Rachel feels it is important for people to represent who they are – and thinks it is equally important for a bride to do so on her wedding day and not fall into the category of what people think a bride ‘should be’.
