Serena Bridal was established in 2009 by Michelle. After training as a wedding planner, Michelle decided to concentrate on her real passion within the wedding industry which was “THE DRESSES”.
From humble beginnings based in a studio next to her own home, the business quickly grew as brides and their families loved Michelle and Lyn’s knowledge, genuine interest and warmth.
In 2012 Serena Bridal moved to its current location. Michelle chose an out of town location as she wanted brides to have space to walk around in the dresses to really get a feel for them. Also it meant free parking right outside for everyone.
There are deliberately only 2 bridal changing areas. This is so that each party has space, rather than cramming brides in, and also each of them can be made completely private should anyone wish it to be.
When Michelle started the business her aim was to help each bride in the search for her gown:
“I always found it disheartening when a bride had already been to a couple of bridal shops and still didn’t know what she was looking for. My aim has always been, that every bride who comes to Serena Bridal, whether she finds her dress with us or not, will leave knowing what she wants and what she looks amazing in.
Our small team are dedicated to working with each and every bride so that she looks the absolute best version of herself on her wedding day.”
This is still at the heart of every consultation, although a word of advice:
“If you do find the one, stop looking! Say ‘Yes to the dress’ and let’s crack open the fizz!”
