With the launch of the fab new Britten wedding accessories collection in April and the US version of The Wedding Garter Co. bringing gorgeous garters to the States, the company needed more space and their new boutique is simply beautiful.
Not only is the delightful Britten boutique situated in the bridal town of Bradford on Avon which is an unbelievably pretty spot that should be on your must-visit list, it’s also in the team’s home town so what more could you ask? Britten have made their home in an utterly charming 15th century building right among some of the industry’s best bridal brands. Their boutique not only has a rich history but the perfect stylish ambience too.
So there are many many reasons to visit Britten in Bradford on Avon. Firstly, the boutique contains the full range of Britten and Wedding Garter Co. accessories, open workshops and even a dedicated veil making room so you can try and buy your accessories in fine style and also see the workshop in action.
“We just love our new boutique,” says Britten’s founder and designer Sarah Jane. “It’s a beautifully appointed space with white washed floors, Regency chairs and a fabulous oversized Baroque mirror. You’ll also get to meet our Head of Morale – Alf the dog!”
Since their launch, Britten and The Wedding Garter Co. designs have become synonymous with quality materials, stunning packaging, competitive prices and absolutely fantastic customer service. Their client testimonials currently number over 400 and are full of rave reviews such as this one:
“I went to Britten & The Wedding Garter Co. for a bespoke garter as my grandmother had left me a brooch that I wanted to incorporate in my wedding day,” writes bride-to-be Charmaine. “The service I received was above and beyond my expectations. They made sure the design was exactly what I wanted and they kept me up to date with progress. I’m in love with my garter and I’m so thankful for their beautiful work.”
Crucially for Britten, their new spacious boutique has allowed them to expand their range of wedding veils and you’ll now be spoiled for choice with silk style tulle options and a truly beautiful selection of Juliet cap veils. It seems that this is the time of year for brides to be to commission bespoke accessories and 2015 has seen a huge rise in the number of brides requesting custom veils, particularly veils with detachable combs.
“We know that veils are something few brides are familiar with. We’ve worked hard to provide you with all of the information that you might need to help you choose so you’ll find all the information we’ve collected in The Britten Veil Directory which contains veil guides, tips and even the history of veils.”

We’re open Saturdays 10.30am to 4.30pm and by appointment Monday to Friday. On Friday 27th November, we’ll be open until 8pm for Bradford on Avon’s Christmas light switch on.
