Well what can we say……it’s been nearly two years since we moved into our little shop in the heart of Davenport in Stockport. The last two years have been a bit of a whirlwind……here is our story of how it all began.
We both met while working at a beautiful bridal boutique in the heart of Heaton Moor in Stockport. Sadly, the shop had to close due to the serious health problems of the owners’ son.
Belinda had been in the world of weddings for over 10 years, creating beautiful hair accessories and jewellery and Paula a florist and event
stylist for over 30 years.
With a shared passion for all things creative, lace and beading we started out holding pop-up shops selling Rainbow Club accessories
along with our own creations. Somewhere along the way, we started selling pre-owned wedding dresses……..and an idea was born!
As our little business started to grow, we realised we needed a shop for our growing business and the hunt for the perfect high street
After looking at many shops, we came across a shop in a perfect location and made an appointment to view. The moment we both walked in
we new we had found the perfect shop for our little business. We both sat in the shop waiting for the estate agent to show us around and immediately started planning the layout! Within a few weeks we had the keys and 7 days later……..yes 7 days……we opened!
Since our little bridal shop opened, we have rearranged the original layout, to adapt to our growing business, so many times we have lost
In our aim to offer something for every bride, after almost a year, we decided to become stockists of wedding gowns by designers Sophia Tolli and Enchanting by Mon Cheri.
Nearly two years later we are now stockists of Romantica of Devon, a brand we knew very well from our days in Heaton Moor, a charming collection of dresses for the modern bride from Enchanting by Mon Cheri and for the curvaceous bride, the stunning Silhouette Collection by Romantica.
We also now stock Richard Designs bridesmaids and flower girl dresses and accessories.
Over the last two years we have met some amazing brides and their families’ and it has truly been a pleasure to be apart of their wedding journey.
We are looking forward to the next chapter…………………
Love Belinda & Paula x
