About Stately Brides...

I’m Leanne, the incredibly proud owner and founder of Stately Brides. I created the business in 2008 and run it single handedly. This allows me to give each bride the commitment and dedication they deserve as excellent customer service is something that is very important to me.

I have the support of my amazing family behind me. My husband and I have 2 daughters. Our eldest often helps me out for a few hours on Saturdays by dusting, plumping the cushions and giving brides her opinion on which dress she prefers! If you are lucky you may get to meet her one day.

Over the 11 years that I have been in the industry I have gained an incredible amount of experience from the thousands of brides that I have helped to find their dream wedding dress. I always make recommendations to each bride, of styles to try on in our large and comfortable changing room. Its very important to me to continue to learn about how the designers are evolving, to keep gaining knowledge on fabrics and detailing and most importantly to keep listening to what my brides want.

I travel across the country every year visiting the designers and choosing new styles, I feel very fortunate to have a job that allows me to express my passion for all things bridal. Attention to detail is essential and every ‘Stately Bride’ will experience this during their personal appointments.

Situated in the beautiful market town of Belper in Derbyshire, my luxury Stately Brides store stands proud at the top of the town’s busy main shopping street, King Street. The move I made from my previous location to the high street was so exciting and I opened the doors to the boutique on the weekend of my 30th birthday! What a birthday present!

I have always wanted to ensure that whether you are getting married on a beach, in a cave, at a cathedral or at your local golf course, I want to offer a fantastic mix of statement pieces, a more relaxed bridal look and the timeless traditional, with a modern twist. There is an amazing dress for everyone at incredibly competitive prices.

Bridal accessories are a hugely important part of any brides look and I have carefully handpicked an exciting selection of varied accessories to complement each dress effortlessly.

These incredible accessories are designed and created by the same designers as the wedding dresses I have in store, meaning that every inch of each brides overall look has incredible attention to detail. Keeping a keen eye on bridal fashion trends I speak with the designers for their expertise and knowledge and between us we create your perfect look.

What more could any bride wish for…

My luxury Belper boutique is open purely when an appointment is booked. Exclusively opening for each bride ensures ultimate privacy for the bride and her family.

All I ask each bride to bring along with them is an open mind and someone who is trusted to help make the decision, I have everything else they need!
