The 5th August 2017 will be the boutique’s first year anniversary! I cannot believe how fast the last year has gone and how much the boutique has achieved in the last year! It has been utterly amazing!

As some of you will know, opening the boutique was a big risk to take in my life, however I know that I made the right decision pretty much as soon as I took the leap! It feels difficult to call this work when its something you love so much!

Since cutting my blue ribbon on my open evening the boutique has achieved so much and I’m so proud of what we’ve done so far.  My family, friends and husband have been amazing in supporting me every step of the way and I look forward to the many more years of bridal to come!

I can’t believe that in just one year the boutique has won Best New Business of 2017 at the Great Northern Wedding Awards, has come runner up in the Chamber of Trade Best Dressed Window and been chosen as a finalist for two awards at the national Bridal Buyer Awards, New Bridal Retailer of the Year and Retailer Website of the Year.

I have recently been through it all when we got married in May and so I can relate exactly what my brides are going through and help guide them in all aspects of their wedding, it doesn’t just stop at the wedding dress. I have been so lucky to meet so many amazing suppliers that with their support and working on styled shoots and numerous wedding fairs it brings the bridal industry together.

So to celebrate an AMAZING year I have a few treats lined up during the summer… shoes, designers weekends and lots of champagne!

To celebrate the boutiques first year, the next two weeks are going to be jam packed! In collaboration with Rachel Simpson Shoes the boutique will be hosting a special 10 day event where I shall have a gorgeous selection of these STUNNING shoes!!! Many of my past brides have shown me their beautiful Rachel Simpson Shoes and it is definitely something to look forward to! The shoes will be in the boutique from Thursday 27th July to Saturday 5th August.

At Rachel Simpson we’re passionate about shoes- it’s what we do. Every shoe is lovingly handmade using the finest materials.

If you want to come and try on some of these beautiful shoes then just give me a call or email to book a drop in appointment so I can make sure the boutique is available for you.

Whilst the boutique has these shoes in store, all brides who have booked in for the Catherine Deane event, Friday 28th – Sunday 30th July, will have a great selection to try with these whimsical dresses and also benefit from an extra 10% off your dress AND shoes!  There are just a couple of appointments left on Friday however Saturday and Sunday are now limited.


The boutique will be hosting the FINAL summer sample sale where ALL samples must go!!!

If you want to take advantage of this special event book an hour’s drop in appointment to ensure you try before you buy! It is a first come first served event so once it’s gone it’s gone!

Appointments will be booked as normal in the morning and afternoon however during the hours of 12noon – 2pm the boutique will be open to all brides to come and join me for a glass of bubbly, delicious treats, browse my beautiful dresses, try on Rachel Simpson shoes and we are also lucky to host a trial and Q&A session for all brides and bridesmaids with the very talented Amy Lauren MUA.

She will be here with a model on the day to show you a bridal look for your big day and answer any questions you may have.
