Rookery Bridal located at The Stables Business Park
Contacting Rookery Bridal is to enter a world of beauty, glamour and excitement ahead of your wedding day with scores of gowns available to try on from a ball gown to a fit and flare style and everything in between.
The venture is located at the Stables Business Park set in open countryside near the village of Rooksbridge in Somerset where there’s ample free parking. Rookery Bridal is run by owner, Sarah Hackett and Sales Manager Lin Ogden who explains brides-to-be can make appointments to visit their new offices.
Sarah added: “Finding out the type of wedding and the colours and style motifs is important as we can then go through all the possible gowns and accessories with the bride. The trends recently have been towards a simpler more fitted gown although some brides love the big dress but it depends on personal tastes and, of course, the type of wedding.
The bride might say they’re looking for a fitted dress like a mermaid but I also encourage our brides to look at a ball gown, or an A-line skirt as it’s important to try on different styles to rule them out to get down to the one a bride loves.”
Natasha Dyer tried on a number of gowns on her visit to firm’s headquarters having originally selected a fitted silk and satin silhouette gown. “I like the gown but it’s very different from the one I chose, as for me the Paloma Blanca gown has a bit more of the wow factor and a classic princess line. The one I liked has a beautiful fitted lace bodice and is so floaty and really comfortable.”
It is important to set a timeline ahead of a wedding which could be months away said Lin. She said: “We can get dresses in and made within certain timescales and we also sell some dresses off the rack so if a bride says ‘help – my wedding is in two weeks!’ which does happen - we can accommodate that as well.” Dresses can take a long length of time to be ordered and Lin advises that brides come to contact them at least a year before their wedding. The bride can then give themselves plenty of time to make the important decision of choosing The One.
Rookery Bridal has a relaxed approach to its customers. Brides-to-be often return for a second or third fitting with many saying the experience of fitting and attention is one of the best parts of the build-up to their wedding. Designer brands include Justin Alexander, Essense of Australia, Paloma Blanca, Rosa Clara, Martina Liana and more to come! The gowns are available in different colours – Ivory, White, Moscato, Rum, Almond for example.
Rookery Bridal also has bridesmaid dresses from Dessy which come in a whole palette of colours and styles along with accessories from Richard Designs, Rainbow Club and others.
Rookery Bridal is open by appointment and is open during office hours from Tuesday to Saturday, 9am-5pm. It also regularly operates evening appointments to accommodate brides and their parties.
The store works in partnership with a wide selection of associated businesses. Check on their website for a recommended local photographer, florist, hair and make-up as well as venues. One such supplier is Flowers by Gem based near Weston-Super-Mare who provided the flowers for Natasha’s fitting. The florist’s website is at www.flowersbygem.com
