WHAT'S THE STORY?
Halo & Wren is an award winning Bridal Boutique started after my own Bridal Gown buying experience. H&W provides bridal gowns for the relaxed, modern Bride, as a Bride myself I struggled to find the relaxed non traditional, international designers and felt that Bridal Boutiques didn't represent me as a modern bride.
My story began with finding a gown on Pinterest, and falling in Love. I struggled to find this gown in the UK as it was only stocked in one boutique in London, I realised the gown was WAY above my budget, this lead to a two year search for the gown, I visited local boutiques but was left disappointed with the un-inspirational gowns and repetitive decor, whilst in London I found my vibe I didn't get the 'special' feeling and was made to feel like just a number.
I queued from 6.30am one morning in February at a sample sale in London, I travelled to try on second hand gowns around the country, I even had a fake copy of the gown made in China (let's just leave that there).
It was not the gown that started H&W, it was my journey to the gown, I have designed and created H&W based on my own experience and what was missing for me, so I know that I am giving my brides the very best and the most incredible gowns.
First bridal shop I ever visited. Jemma really looked after me and my bridal party. She made me feel so comfortable and helped me find a wedding dress style which best suits my shape. It was a lovely experience a with a great range of different style dresses. Highly recommend! Perfect customer service, amazing atmosphere and setting.
What an amazing place! Gemma was incredible, made me feel at home, let me spend as much time needed looking through and finding what I liked but then also helping me with others similar that I might like. She made me feel so comfortable trying the dresses on, being so kind and incredibly helpful with advice. I didn't get my dress on the day and she didn't make me feel pressured at all which made me even more excited to come back when I'm ready.
I couldn't recommend this place higher, the dresses are beautiful and well made and I had a great time!
I visited quite a few bridal shops but Halo & Wren was the BEST by far! Jemma is so welcoming, friendly, knowledgable and gives great advice. There are so many unique, beautiful dresses to choose from which is what stood out for me compared to other bridal shops. It's so hard to pick one dress though, I ended up with 3 shortlisted ones before going back to try them all on again and making my final decision! The shop itself is also beautes. I highly recommend paying this place a visit to find the dress of your dreams!
