Vow…to give you the best in customer service

We created Vow out of a passion for style, substance and service. We hope you find this passion reflected in your experience when you come and visit the Vow Bridal Gallery.

Our skill of knowing what looks good will compliment your ideas to create the perfect look and feel for your special wedding day…

We have hand picked our collection of wedding dresses and bridal accessories to showcase the best of new contemporary bridal styles alongside more traditional wedding dress designs. The feeling you experience whilst choosing your perfect wedding dress is just as important to us. We want you to be relaxed, enthused, engaged and most of all have fun! For the guys, we want you to enjoy choosing your wedding suits too. We have a separate floor especially for the groom where tiaras are strictly out of bounds!

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved dressing up – dressing well, accessorising, wearing something a bit different, and embracing many different styles. I also love people – meeting people from all different backgrounds and helping them however I can. Put those 2 things together and you’ve got a great opportunity in the bridal industry!

My background is split between the Performing Arts sector and the Environmental industry. I got a BA Honours Degree in Performing Arts from De Montfort University way back in 1993. I loved performing and it seemed a natural progression to study the performing arts in more detail.

After graduating I performed in a lot of local Am Dram shows which was a part of my life I loved.

I am a lifelong Liverpool fan which is always a bit tense. I’ve just started to bake & cook more as I felt I should at this point in my life! I like skiing although don’t get to go any more with the business. I’ve climbed Scafell Pike which was a particular goal I set myself one year. I go to Zumba to try to stay fit and keep dancing. And of course I love spending time with all my friends and family.

In amongst all that I also enjoyed a 17 year long career with the Environment Agency (yes 17 years?!!). I was an Executive Manager for the last 5 years of my time at the Environment Agency sitting on the Regional Management Team for Anglian Region.

Then a re-organisation meant I could take the opportunity to pursue a different challenge in my life. I’d reached that time in my life where I wanted to do something different. So after a lot of planning, and alongside Dave, the Vow Bridal Gallery was born!

So now I spend my days being creative again by styling brides as well as trying to run a successful business as a whole.

So if you’re a bride wanting some help with finding your perfect dress, come and spend some time with me and I’ll do my utmost to help you look the best for your big day!

Hi! ‘Style with Substance’ is a term often associated with my favourite group, Roxy Music and my football team’s famous all white strip is also a classic statement of intent. And, so it is therefore no surprise that I have always had an interest in clothes and fashion.

I’m originally from ‘Up North’ hence the reference to the famous all white strip of Leeds United and having moved to Peterborough over 15 years ago I now feel like a local, I haven’t lost my Yorkshire accent though!

My earlier career was as an Environmental Scientist in the water/environment industry and I am very proud of my role in improving the quality of rivers and canals of Yorkshire and East Anglia and as a result they are cleaner than at any time since the industrial revolution.

For many years I was a DJ in my spare time and weddings were always my favourite function and as mentioned after a long professional career as an Environmental Scientist it’s fantastic to be now working with brides and grooms full time. I really enjoy meeting people from all different walks of life and doing my bit to make their most special day even more special.

So, if you are a groom wanting your own style with added substance then I’m your man!
