Wedding Dress Shopping in Leicestershire

We caught up with the lovely Susanne Wilkie from Bradgate Brides in Leicestershire to hear all about her beautiful store…

Where is your shop? 

Our bridal boutique is situated in the village of Anstey in Leicestershire, right next to the beautiful Charnwood Forest, but with great motorway links to surrounding areas.

Do I need to book an appointment?

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have had to change to appointments only, across all our main ‘to order’ and our sample ‘off the peg’ suites.

How long have you been in the bridal industry?

We have been a part of the bridal industry for the last 20 years!

What is special about your shop?

What makes Bradgate Brides special is our wonderful staff who are extremely hardworking & committed and who will often go above & beyond for our brides! Also our constant updating of content, to ensure we remain fresh & current!

How did you get into Bridal?

It all started in a one storey thatched cottage opposite the picturesque Bradgate Park in Leicestershire. An acquaintance of mine was selling her business and I recognised its potential! It was at a time when I needed a new career that fitted around family commitments and was local! And who doesn’t love playing ‘dress up?’

What is special about your shop?

I like to think that now we are housed in our larger three storey building, we can cater for all our brides needs and offer a greater range of designers, styles, accessories & cater for a wider range of price points & timescales. There really is something here for everyone!

What are your tips for brides to be?

My biggest tip for any bride to be, when visiting our salon, is to be open-minded! Let my expert stylists do their job and they will help you find the gown that works best for you on your special day.

Any famous/memorable clients?

As we have been here for a few years now, we have been fortunate enough to work with a number of celebrity clients. I prefer to maintain confidentiality though, so R.V, R.C & R.A (with a sporting connection) is all I am willing to say!

Who else is in your team?

We are currently adjusting to the ‘new norm’ & so a number of staff are working from home presently, whilst others are dealing with the lower number of brides, we can currently accommodate within the salon.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bradgate Brides #makingyourdayspecial
