Ellie Rose Bridal - Behind the scenes
Owned by chief bridal consultant Ellie and business partner Ollie, they bring combined bridal industry and business management experience together. They both share a passion for design and are driven by delivering a personal bespoke bridal experience that is second to none.
"I got into the bridal industry," Ellie explains, "after I had finished my degree in South Wales. I have always had a passion for the fashion industry, particularly Bridal fashion. After getting my first job as the 'prom girl' in a well known bridal shop I worked my way up to bridal. Oliver and I then discussed the possibility of relocating to Bath and began to plan for Ellie Rose Bridal."
"Ollie has a great head on his shoulders and really helps the business run smoothly and keeps me grounded, whereas my knowledge lies with the designs and styling. With our combined expertise in our fields, we make a great team."
Ellie Rose Bridal brings exclusive bridal designs paired with a personal bridal experience to everyone. They understand that finding your wedding gown should be an exciting part of your wedding experience, and want to make it as memorable as it should be! Brides and their entourage can enjoy complete privacy and no interruptions with exclusive access to the bridal suite during their appointment.
The shop is located in the historic city of Bath and the city is the perfect backdrop for the stunning collection of gowns and designers that they represent. At Ellie Rose Bridal they present the Bride with stunning collections by top U.S bridal designer Hayley Paige. Her designs have taken the world by storm, firmly establishing her as one of the world’s top wedding dress designers and they are one of Europe’s largest stockists of Hayley Paige gowns.
Ellie tells me, "Hayley’s collections are fun, modern and young. With amazing use of texture and colours Hayley’s gown are for the bride who wants to stand out. We also stock dreamy gowns by Ti Adora Bridal. These gowns have an elegant and lacey feel that is timeless. With soft flowing fabrics and detailed lace work, these designs cover the classic bride to the boho bride."
Ellie says, "I love meeting new people and hearing all about their wedding plans and going through this wonderful journey and experience with them. This includes all the highs and lows of the wedding planning process, from finding your dream dress to chasing R.S.P.V’s. It’s such an honour to be a part of their wedding plans and help them find the dress and accessorise that make them feel like the beautiful bride they are."
So what's Ellie and Ollie's top bridal appointment? Ellie tells me, "It's hard to choose a favorite bridal appointment because each appointment is so different. I have had many laughs with the bride and her entourage and had discussions about different ideas for their wedding. I like to give out little tips as well to the Brides. For example we always steam the gown before it leaves us, but if you are getting married abroad the creases will form in transportation. If the venue/ hotel/ villa doesn't have a steamer to hand the best way to get the crease to fall out is hanging the gown in the bathroom whilst you take a hot shower. Little tips like these can go a long way when planning a wedding and make the Bride feel at ease."
"We love hosting our designer Trunk Shows and collaborating with local wedding suppliers to make the event even better. At our most recent Ti Adora Trunk Show, Flowers of Bath provided us with a stunning bridal bouquet. We have a few more planned for this year and some other exciting events for all Brides to enjoy. "
