New bridal boutique to open in Hertfordshire

Heritage Brides is the newest bridal boutique to open in Hertfordshire and is designed to be a destination for the discerning bride. Stocked with some of the most desirable designers, the boutique located in the stunning Harness Room at the Stable Yard at Hatfield House, has set out to redefine the buying experience for brides.

“Buying your wedding dress should be one of the most memorable experiences of your life,” said owner of Heritage Brides, Sam Newby-Ricci, “but for many brides, it can be a disappointment.

“Brides need to be able to feel and touch and try and not feel like they are being scrutinized. How can you decide on which dress is ‘the one’ if you are wearing a pair of gloves?”

Sam has set out to make sure that the Heritage Brides experience is one to remember. The ancient barn which dates back to the 15th century has been transformed into a woodland wonderland packed with quirky vintage pieces and curiosities.

“It’s just the most magical place to come and try on the exquisite gowns,” said Sam, “But most of all I want it to be fun.”

The exclusive stockist for Terry Fox in Hertfordshire, Heritage Brides is proud to have been chosen to showcase the wearable works of art which are lovingly made by hand in Bury St Edmunds.

“Where possible I wanted to stick with British designers,” said Sam. “After all, Hatfield House comes with a lengthy heritage and that’s what the boutique is about - buying something which will become part of a personal history.”

And while Terry Fox gowns are at one end of the spectrum (prices start at £2,000), Heritage Brides will also stock Lou Lou Bridal dresses - a nod to the 1950s and which start at an affordable £750.

There will also be gowns by new designer Maria Senvo stocked and the Gatsby style elegance of Belle & Bunty gowns.

“I have always been passionate about shoes,” added Sam, “and I think I have got some of the best at Heritage Brides. Again, I went for British with Harriet Wilde and new designers Merle & Morris. Their heels really are stunning and they have been created with comfort in mind.”

To complete the look there are also handmade bridal hair combs and headdresses by Klaire Van Elton.

“It was important to me that everything fitted in with the feel I was trying to create and I think the designers I have on board do just that.”

 

Heritage Brides will be opening in April 2014. To make an appointment go to www.heritagebrides.co.uk
