Opening Bijou Bridal Boutique was a dream come true! I had always felt in my heart that after many years of planning and waiting for the right property to become available, I would one day open the doors to a beautiful feminine space for brides to find the gown of their dreams and I believe that I have done just that! Almost two years ago we moved just a few doors up from our old location to a bigger, brighter space with even more charm and character. When you step inside at our new location at No.58 Huddersfield Road Holmfirth, you are not only greeted with a warm and friendly smile, but also the “oh so pretty” combination of the softest yellow, ivory and silver grey brought together in a beautiful floral wallpaper, delicately painted walls, and beautiful bright lighting in which to browse the stunning collections of wedding gowns and accessories that the boutique has to offer.
The boutique is situated in Holmfirth, a beautiful part of the Holme Valley in West Yorkshire and is best known for the longest running television series “Last of the Summer Wine”. You can spend hours visiting the old haunts of the television characters from’Sid’s Cafe’ to ‘The Wrinkled Stocking tearoom’, and even take a tour of various beauty spots made famous by the series! It is a beautiful little place packed full of individual shops and lovely tea rooms, not forgetting some fantastic beauty and hair salons which every bride needs!
When I opened the boutique, I knew I wanted to offer my brides something a bit different from the usual mass produced bridal attire which you can find on every street corner and so I decided to offer only British Designed bridal wear and accessories. Along with this desire to offer only British labels, also grew the enormous passion for silk fabrics, chiffon and organza, along with the most exquisite French & Italian laces and sumptuous embellishments! As a result, the boutique offers a hand picked collection of only British designed wedding gowns in the finest fabrics including collections from Alan Hannah, Ivory & Co. Bridal Couture, Mia Mia by Marguerite Hannah, Olivia Rose Bridal by Romantica Collections and now introducing the gorgeous Nicola Anne designs. The accessories are also all British designed and include shoes by Harriet Wilde and Diane Hassall, headdresses, tiaras and veils by Richard Designs and Ivory & Co. as well as bespoke veils by Joyce Jackson. The boutique is also very priveleged to have the gorgeous Award winning Motee Maids bridesmaid collection in the boutique featuring beautiful hand beaded bodices and a choice of different styles and colours. I would like to believe that I have chosen collections with timeless appeal that brides will fall in love with!
