Dotty Taylor Bridal opened its doors in September 2015 and is the most glamorous of sister companies to our very well loved bridal sample boutique Evelyn Taylor Bridal, just five minutes down the road. Every day I’m reminded that I really do have the very best job in the world and to now be able to be part of even more weddings is an absolute joy and privilege.
The boutique is nestled in the picturesque town of Holmfirth and it’s a little bit quirky and certainly unique. When designing the look of the shop and the branding I wanted to boutique to be welcoming and luxurious without being overwhelming or pretentious and I really hope that you all love it as much as we do.
I really believe that the boutique stands out from the rest mainly due to the unique style of the shop and also our extremely high level of customer service.
I’m never one to follow the norm and that was the last thing I wanted for the boutique. I wanted to create a whole different perception of bridal moving away from the stuffy feel that many refer to when asked about bridal boutiques. We go above and beyond for our customers, offering a more personal shopper approach rather than just a try and buy style of service.
Our bridal consultants are all highly trained coming from large high street retailers they are all extremely skilled in offering style advice. Being able to discuss with their brides what shapes and silhouettes flatter differing figures, what colours complement certain skin tones, everything right down to what underwear is best for the brides specific needs.
One of the things I’m asked on a relatively regular basis is ‘who is Dotty Taylor?’ so let me shed some light on the story behind the name. Dorothy Taylor was my Great Great Grandmother an amazing women who unfortunately I never had the pleasure of meeting. Grandma Dorothy was such a strong woman with no fears and a big kid at heart. Always knitting, sewing or cooking the way we all imagine a good old-fashioned grandma to be. Together Grandma Dorothy and Granddad Willie ran the local grocers shop for a number of year selling everything you can imagine in the days before the supermarkets and she always had a story to tell. So it only felt right to continue on that story in the hope that I can be as strong and successful as my dearly loved Grandma Dorothy – Dotty Taylor Bridal
