Bridal Path was established in 2006 in the pretty and historic village of Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire to offer wedding gowns from some of Britain’s finest and freshest designers. They stock designs by Jenny Packham, Stewart Parvin, Amanda Wakeley, Sassi Holford, Sabina Motasem, Tobi Hannah and Belle & Bunty – all highly respected designers who have created clothing for celebrities, dignitaries and royalty between them.
More than ever, the brides who visit Bridal Path are saying that other shops they visit seem to offer row upon row of the ‘same’ dress. Their aim is to steer away from these mass-produced items and offer a collection with which the bride can create a unique look for her special day. Alterations are carried out by a couturier with decades of experience, who can also adapt, or design and make a dress for the bride should she not find ‘the one’ from their selection. Prices start at £850 and all gowns are made-to-order, with a made-to-measure option on more structured styles if required.
Based in a traditional granary building on the main street at the heart of Sawbridgeworth, Bridal Path’s ground floor showroom is a calm, airy, well-lit space where brides can browse the collection of modern and traditional wedding gowns. They have a first floor private fitting room where the bride and her party can make themselves comfortable whilst dresses are tried on away from the view of other customers. A complementary selection of headpieces, veils, shrugs, belts and jewellery plus Rachel Simpson shoes are stocked, so a complete look can be created. Bridesmaids are also welcome to try the Twobirds and Betsey Couture collections.
