This exclusively British collection also includes pieces from House of Ollichon, a completely dress-less bridal collection, making Waxflower Bridal a key destination for any modern bride across Wales, the South West and beyond.

Amongst the pink velvet sofas, plush furnishings and contemporary fittings, brides will discover rails of gowns, jumpsuits and two-pieces, expertly curated by Kathy.

I cannot recommend Waxflower Bridal and Kathy enough! As someone who got engaged during lock down, and with only a short period of time to arrange our wedding, finding a dream dress was high on my 'to do' list. I was a bit apprehensive about trying on dresses as all the covid-19 chocolate has made me a little bit self conscious, and the time pressure of finding a dream dress with 5 months to go to the wedding really piled on the pressure.
Kathy could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. Even while the shop was shut due to lock down, we communicated regularly, with lots of ideas and suggestions before my appointment, and absolutely buckets full of enthusiasm and reassurance.
When I finally came to the shop, I was really stunned by what a gem of a place it is! The dresses on offer a a fab blend of traditional and quirky. There is a whole large, private, airy room to try on dresses, with lots of gorgeous accessories to play with. Kathy was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the gorgeous dresses in store, and even suggested blending elements of 2 dresses I loved to provide me with a custom bespoke gown, all within tight deadlines.
I came away buzzing from my appointment , a million miles from the stressed bride I was when I walked in. I will be raving about Waxflower and Kathy to any bride I meet!

I would not hesitate in recommending Waxflower Bridal to others, not just because of the most stunning collection of dresses but you will also have the pleasure of dealing with the lovely personable and highly knowledgeable Kathy, and experience her lovely sumptuous bridal room. My daughter Holly had really made her mind up the first time we met Kathy with a selection of her dresses at a Wedding Fayre. We visited her beautiful bridal shop in Chepstow and never needed to go anywhere else! The whole experience was one I will never forget. I think by the time of the Wedding we felt that Kathy had become our lifelong friend :). Even with all the distancing restrictions etc of 2020 Kathy dealt with everything so safely and professionally and this did not detract in anyway from the joy for Holly of choosing and purchasing that most important dress! Thank you Kathy for a superb unique service, and of course as a very biased mother of the bride, my daughter could not have looked more breathtakingly beautiful than she did in her Waxflower gown.

I visited several bridal boutiques, but none compared to the gorgeously styled, Waxflower. Not only is the boutique designed to perfection, Kathy is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and provided the best service to my mother in law and I.

Ordering the bespoke veil was straightforward and delivery was prompt. Due to the service Kathy provided, I am also getting my wedding dress altered here, as I know the dress will be in good hands. I 100% recommend to all up-coming brides.

Going to Waxflower Bridal was so worth the travel! We travelled up from London, everything about it was just perfect. . . the boutique is spacious, the dressing room is dreamy and the range of bridal wear they have available is so unique and beautiful. Kathy was so lovely and helpful, to all the future brides. . . I highly recommend Waxflower Bridal! xxx

WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVE IN EMOJI TERMS ⭐❤🤩👌???
⭐ 1/ 2 = CALLA
❤ 3/ 4 = ASTRID
🤩 4/ 5 = FOREVER
👌 YOU LOVE ALL OF THEM

I can't wait to see which one or ones are your favourite!!
.
These beauties are by the one and only @suzanneneville 🙌 This is a grand statement to make, but you really can't beat Suzanne Neville's corsetry/ structure as Suzanne Neville is truly the queen of corsetry. The combination of the exquisite structure,  the cut of the pieces and the use of the most luxurious fabrics creates pure magic.

Remember to save them, if you're loving any of these styles! 😀

Things about me...

🐆 If you can't tell...I'm a big fan of the leopard print ( my dress and leopard vase may have given this point away!ha!) Leopard print + 💄💋 is pretty much my go to!

👰🏼‍♀️ I've been lucky enough to work in this amazing industry (luxury bridal) for 13 years!!! I just love everything about this industry!

👠 Alongside working in this fab industry, I studied at Cordwainers at The London College of Fashion, where I received a BA HONS Degree in Footwear Design + Making. I've always loved creating, designing and making things. From this, I feel my appreciation and understanding grew a zillion percent for amazing quality, beautiful craftsmanship, amazing design and beautiful fabrics/materials.

🎬 I wouldn't have known that there was a Footwear Degree out there if I hadn't had watched the film P.S.I LOVE YOU...I know! Who would have thought it hey!?

😄 This sounds uber cliché and pretty cheesey but I am a lover of life and don't like taking myself too seriously and just love a good laugh! 

❤ I'm such a softy and love a good chic flick. One of my fave films is Notting Hill...I just love the man, Spike! If you haven't watched it...you gotta give it a watch!

Anything else you wanna know? 🤔😀
