Before Anna Bridal was a twinkle in my eye, my sights were set on having a job I truly loved. Looking back, 16 years have passed since I started position as a ‘Saturday girl’ in my first bridal boutique. My job was at a beautiful wedding dress shop in the Warwickshire countryside. I was only 15 at the time, but determined to gain as much experience as possible whilst working during weekends!
I quickly realised that my aspiration was to help brides find the wedding dress of their dreams! Working in the bridal boutique was my first taste of bridal fashion, and needless to say, I simply adored it!
Some years later, whilst studying for my Business Degree at Bournemouth University, I began working in London at the head office and flagship boutique of one of the world’s most incredible bridal designers. I was given the wonderful opportunity of working in New York for 3 months with the designer. I was based in the Manhattan showroom in the Meatpacking District, which supported our runway show at New York fashion week!
Immediately after graduating, I decided to move into the corporate world and spent 3 years honing my marketing skills at a Chartered Insurance Brokers specialising in Business Development and Marketing. New York runways felt a million miles away, and before long, I decided I needed to realise my dream and set up Anna Bridal Couture. I can’t put into words how happy it makes me that I did! Seeing all of our beautiful brides across on our ‘Love Stories’ page makes my heart fill with love and joy!
