About Tilly Trotter’s Brides

Almost every woman on the planet has dreamt about her wedding day since she was a little girl… playing ‘weddings’ in her childhood bedroom with her best friend as the Groom. A tea towel veil fixed firmly to her head, a bouquet of dandelions clasped in front of her.

Yet, it’s heart breaking when we finally get the chance to bring our dreams to reality and what should be the most exciting part of the process, always seems to end up not quite meeting our expectations. We leave the endless bridal shops with a bitter taste in our mouths, unable to shake the feeling that despite the fact that we’ve found a stunning wedding dress; the whole experience wasn’t as exciting and as magical as we had dreamt it would be…..

This is exactly what happened to me when I became a bride. I found a stunning gown and met some lovely people during the process, but that was pretty much it. No champagne, no gushing sales assistants, no styling, no after care – the list goes on. It was this experience (or lack of) that spurred me on to open my own luxury bridal boutique.


Your appointment will be with me, Sian. I have 15 years’ experience working in both luxury cosmetics and with world renowned fashion designers… most recently heading up the European training team at leading British fashion house, Burberry.

From my time within the luxury goods market, I have learnt what vital ingredients are necessary in order to create a bespoke and decadent experience. I understand how important it is to feel absolutely amazing when you are about to purchase what is likely to be, one of the most expensive pieces of fashion you will ever purchase; and will help you find your dream gown from the selection of exquisite bridal collections created by the industry’s most talented and respected designers.

At the very least, you should expect to leave my boutique with some fabulous skincare and make up tips!
