Shannon – Founder / Owner

“As the proud owner and founder of Dotty Bridal, I truly believe our boutique and collections are special and unique.”

Having been a store manager for many years, I’ve been lucky enough to have worked for some big names on the high street from Cath Kidston to Victoria’s Secret. I understand the importance of providing outstanding customer service and that was my main reason for opening up the bridal boutiques as I aim to provide each of our brides and bridesmaids with an unforgettable experience.

Being able to make so many brides happy through my amazing team. Being with my girls every day, helping to empower them to help our brides be the best they can be and to look out of this world on their wedding day fills me with love and makes me so grateful for the amazing gift of memories that we can give to all our brides. When our brides step through the door they step in as brides and leave as friends, feeling the most confident they have ever felt.

My celeb marry would be… David Beckham!

Beth – Owner

Beth is a little brain box with a Master’s in Law and Practice and as you can guess, is certainly the brainy one amongst the team! With brains and beauty, she’s got it all, you will see Beth regularly gracing our Insta & Facebook feeds modelling lots of our stunning gowns.

“I’m a self-confessed wedding addict – I absolutely love working at Dotty. I can honestly say I look forward to going to work in such a beautiful shop and spending the day with such amazing people. Helping someone find their dream dress is more than just work, it feels more like shopping with a friend who needs your advice and opinion!

What I love most about the job is those few moments where you realise that this dress is ‘the one’ and the bride doesn’t want to take it off! There’s nothing better than smiles all round.”
