The story thus far….
In January 2012 over a rather large quantity of tequila, the idea of Love Bridal was born.
Falling in love with the idea of a South London Bridal experience showcasing exciting designers and offering something most brides have to pay double for in central London, grew the blossoming pavement adornment that now stands happily in Crystal Palace.
Offering 20 years of combined bridal, retail and customer service expertise were now going to be put to good use with the sole, joint ambition of driving the customer experience back into the industry. Max has over 15 years as a Business Training Analyst & Wedding Planner under her belt and helped set up and run the largest retail and training Experience Centres in London. A former make-up artist, stylist to the stars and mummy to Milo and Zachary, Max brings a personal family-friendly feel to the boutique. As a mum to boys, Love Bridal is her girly output!
Born and bred local Londoner Laura, has an eye for all things vintage and a flair for fashion, always keeping a lookout for the next trends to hit the catwalk. The strong silent type, Laura has previously worked with designer Mary Quant and has also retail managed some of London’s most prestigious and high end department stores. Laura knows exactly what its like to be a current bride in the big city having marrying her very own Prince Charming last December.
Both now, working in harmony with brides across the UK & abroad, they, along with Kelly & Natasha their trusty girl-power team. Small, perfectly formed boutique without the price-tag but giving the ultimate experience to all. Brides come first…
Team Love Bridal:
Kelly is a Canadian national with a little mix of Irish in there, bringing some serious stylist experience from overseas. She has an edge to her styling that makes your body look incredible and she just knows what looks good on others. A little sewing gem too, Kelly can often be found designing her fabulous jewellery or hitting the pedal on her sewing machine. Failing that she’s a resident at the local pub and loves a good pint!
Natasha joined us back in 2015 from her big city job, to run our busy Saturday’s as the boutique oracle! Engaged to be married this year with very high expectations for her gown (no pressure at all) and is also our house model.
Renee is our newest team member and joins us in the week as our receptionist. She’s a hard core make up artist working with THE biggest brand out there for the last 10 years, so feel free to ask her if she’s free to help on your wedding day!
Zen is our house seamstress – self employed but no less one of our teamies! She’s friendly, incredibly talented and can make something out of nothing.
Together, our team is magical – kinda like those little elves who make Christmas happen, ours makes your bridal dreams come to life.
