All About Us
Welcome to LOVE Bridal Boutique! A boutique full of inspiration and love, with a range of refreshing, exciting bridal gowns and accessories for brides on the hunt for something a little more unusual.
At LOVE we believe that your wedding dress shopping experience should be the best shopping experience you’ll ever have. You should be able to choose from a carefully selected range of gowns with intuitive, caring stylists on hand to give you their full, undivided attention and expertise. We only ever take one appointment at a time, meaning you have the boutique completely to yourself for the utmost privacy and a very special, unrivalled experience.
Since we opened our doors in August 2012, LOVE has gone from strength to strength, being crowned Best Bridal Retailer 2015 in England in The Wedding Industry Awards, an award which was voted for by our brides and a host of highly acclaimed industry experts. Not to mention several other award wins (see our awards section for more details).
LOVE is a truly family affair…
Emma Draper - Owner/Stylist
Emma’s passion for all things wedding stems from previous bridal boutique managerial experience, her experience as a professional bridal make-up artist (satisfying her love for make-up!) and working alongside Jonny on the admin side of his wedding photography business.
Having seen the bridal ‘journey’ from all stages and angles, Emma is a fountain of knowledge on all things bridal, with lots of supplier and styling recommendations for her brides (fuelled by her strong addiction to Instagram!) She runs LOVE with an infectious enthusiasm for giving brides-to-be the ultimate wedding dress shopping experience and creating a perfect environment for LOVE brides.
Jonny Draper - Owner/Photographer
One of the UK’s most in demand wedding photographers, Jonny has seen a lot of girls in a lot of dresses! He really understands the need for a first class experience for every bride who walks through LOVE’s doors, and has had a huge amount of input into the set up of the boutique and deciding on the designers that LOVE stocks. He even gets to come on our buying trips… and has been known to choose some key styles for our collection (and help us drink champagne of course!)
Jonny has been the photographer of choice for a large number of our LOVE brides and is often seen at our events and in the boutique, tying in appointments with LOVE brides after their bridal appointment.
