We can’t believe it’s been ten years since Vow Bridal Gallery opened its doors for the first time. What a journey it has been! We’ve loved every minute of it; time flies when you’re having as much fun as we are. We have achieved so much, and there’s still so much more to look forward to in the future!
Over the past few years, our premises has certainly changed quite a bit! We started our Vow Bridal Gallery journey in the courtyard of the lovely The Haycock Hotel, which was a great venue for us at the time. After four years, when the business has experienced significant growth, we realised that we needed a bigger space. We found our current location on London Road and fell in love with the premises! After some DIY to make it truly ‘us’, we held a launch party to welcome our friends, family, dress designers, press, fellow wedding suppliers, and future brides and grooms to the gallery. The rest is history! The last six years in the ‘new’ gallery have been truly wonderful, and we’ve loved redecorating the space as the business grows and changes.
We are delighted to have won a range of awards over the years. Pictured below is Lisa as she proudly highlights some of the fantastic awards that we’ve received, including our title of ‘Wedding Boutique of the Year in the East Region’ for 2016, 2017, and 2019. Fingers crossed that more awards await us in the future!
We’ve been lucky enough to work with some brilliant designers since we opened our doors. We are extremely proud to be stockists of not only Kenneth Winston signature dresses but also their sister ranges including Ella Rosa, a popular collection. Similarly, we started offering Madi Lane Bridal dresses in January 2020 and they’ve been a hit ever since! THEIA gowns bring a different dimension to the gallery and are perfect dresses for brides looking to embrace unique, individual styles. In 2021, we welcomed the Silhouette Collection by Romantica of Devon to Vow Bridal Gallery. The collection is bursting with glamorous bridal styles to suit every size, shape, and personality. We have sample sizes from 18-26 in this collection and can help our brides find the perfect dress for their big day!
It has been an absolute delight helping grooms find the ideal suit for their wedding day! We offer a large range of Morning Suits, Prince Edward Suits, and Slim-Fit Lounge Suits, and Tweed Suits with a comprehensive selection of waistcoats, ties, and cravats, and the collection has been continually growing! Dave has really enjoyed growing the West Wing of the gallery into what it is today: a suit paradise where there is a style for everyone!
We’ve attended a variety of events over the years, including bridal designer catwalk shows, bridal showcases such as the Island Hall Bridal Showcase, award shows, and events hosted by lovely local wedding suppliers. We really missed attending events when they had to be paused during the pandemic, but we can’t wait to attend more in the near future!
The Vow Bridal Team
The Vow team is the glue that holds the gallery together! We’d like to thank everyone for their contribution to Vow Bridal Gallery. We couldn’t do it without our lovely seamstresses Michelle, Sharon, and Kay who ensure the dresses look perfect, ready for the big day. They are incredibly talented individuals and we are so lucky to work with them!
We’d like to thank everyone for the incredible support over the past ten years, we really appreciate it. Vow wouldn’t be what it is today without your support. We can’t wait to see what the future holds! Here’s to another ten years of Vow Bridal Gallery.
