I heard about Bridal Reloved initially from my friend Fae, who purchased her beautiful wedding dress from one of their many wonderful franchises.The concept of Bridal Reloved is pretty simple - they sell high end, ex sample and pre-owned wedding dresses, that are good for the environment and your bank balance. Fae's friend Steph fell in love with the idea, and decided to open her own franchise in Shrewsbury. Fae put us in touch with one another, and I'm pleased to say that Bridal Reloved Shrewsbury is my first Shropshire supplier! Steph has always been kind, positive and supportive of my business. Having my veils stocked alongside her dresses is a true privilege.
I have also had the opportunity to work with Steph on a stunning styled shoot at Garthmyl Hall (hopefully the first of many!) and we do have plenty of projects lined up that I'm hoping will happen very soon. We've been interrupted by floods and Coronavirus so far, so I'm certain there can't be any more barriers after that, right..!?
Here's a few shots from our collaborative shoot at Garthmyl Hall. I also got to catch up with Steph at Garthmyl Hall's Spring wedding fair in February (it seems like worlds ago now!). I have always been quite introverted & kept myself to myself in the industry, so it's lovely to have a local supplier to go to and have a chat with. Photos by Olivia Moon Photography.
Steph's Bridal Reloved store is a true treat - a stunning old (I'm going to guess Georgian) building, with original features, fireplaces and a genuinely welcoming feel. Steph has an array of dreamy designer dresses in a range of styles and shapes, which along with her friendly and judgment free approach makes her highly recommended in the bridal biz. She also stocks a range of divine accessories too (including a few alternative wedding veils from yours truly!). Check out Bridal Reloved Shrewsbury if you're after a true one off piece... You won't be disappointed.
