Hi I’m Sally, I’ve been a part of The Bridal Collection since 2014 and the journey has been quite an adventure so far! It all really began back in high school when two awkward geeky teenagers first met at house party & one asked the other “Are we sort of a thing then?”. Turns out they sort of were and 10 years later Matthew & I got engaged. While wedding planning was a total joy for me, there was one thing which made my stomach churn – finding the dress. I had visions of entering a boutique full of immaculately made-up women who would take one look at me and refuse to believe anyone wanted to marry me. I had no idea how it worked, what did I need to say, I was so nervous!
When it came to my appointment, it is absolutely one of my best memories of my wedding. I shared it with my mum and my friends, I chose, I tried on, most of us cried – it was pretty special! I felt looked after, listened too and if I didn’t know quite how to say what I meant then there was someone there who knew these dresses (literally) inside out and somehow managed to show me just the right thing. I left the shop that day having found the dress I couldn’t wait to wear on my wedding day.
When I saw months later that there was an opportunity to join the Bridal Collection team I just knew I had to be a part of it. Making someone feel like Debbie & Esther had made me feel during my time as a bride just seemed like the most wonderful way to be a part of someone’s wedding journey. I have loved learning all the different fabrics, shapes & designers and I can’t get enough of wedding dresses these days but what I really love about my job is meeting the people.
I have to admit to always having a soft spot for the bride who ‘doesn’t normally wear dresses’ or ‘isn’t having a typical wedding’ because you girls are so much fun! My absolute favourite thing is listening to all your ideas, however off the wall & find a way to reflect that in your beautiful gown. Need a dress you can climb a tree in? A gown that works with your vintage cowboy boots? Or maybe one that somehow subtly coordinates with your Game of Thrones table settings? Whatever inspires you and reflects who you are as a bride – that’s what I want to run with and create you an amazing look which you cant wait to wear on your wedding day.
I have been part of The Bridal Collection for a few years now and every day my passion for the industry grows. The fashion, the designers, the appointments, people and colleagues make for the happiest place to be.
A lot of people say to us ‘this must be a dream to work here’ and it truly is! To help make other women’s dreams come true for their big day is an honour and I’m so proud to be part of The Bridal Collection family.
