We hope you are enjoying the tour of our British bridal boutiques up and down the country. At the time of writing this most of our wonderful stockists are closed due to a second lockdown in England. We cannot wait for everyone’s doors to be wide open meeting all the brides-to-be on the journey to find their dream dress.
The Pantiles Bride
‘We’re all about location, longevity and luxe:
Location on the historic pedestrianised Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells where a cosmopolitan café culture awaits our brides. Many of them make a day (or even weekend of it!) and book lunch at The Ivy or at one of the many other great restaurants within minutes walk of the boutique.
Longevity – celebrating 24 yeas of bridal in 2021 and Sassi Holford started with us back in 1997!
Luxe – we are located over 2 floors and most times brides and their guests have exclusive use of the boutique. Our average price is £2500 and Alexandra our manager loves helping a bride design a bespoke gown.’
Why do you stock Sassi Holford? ‘Sassi Holford is the only designer who has been with us since we first opened in 1997 so we’ve grown our businesses together. We understand her designs and we love that the gowns are produced in England as this means that there is huge flexibility in what we can do with a gown. We love that we can have matching lace veils from the Couture collection. Quality has always been foremost over the years. The fact that Sassi sees brides at her London and Taunton boutiques means that she’s in tune with trends and isn’t designing in the vacuum of a studio divorced from the real world.’

We asked why Sassi Holford? ‘We love working with Sassi and her team. The collections are unique, stylish and use the most beautiful fabrics. Sassi brings a modernity to our collections and represents the bride that dares to be just that bit different.’
‘Ivory Grace is an intimate and relaxed bridal boutique in the North East of Scotland. We pride ourselves on offering brides a modern and contemporary take on their bridal look while retaining a traditional and romantic edge. Owner Kayleigh first fell in love with Sassi’s dresses while looking for her own bridal gown and wore one of Sassi’s designs on her Wedding day.’
