Meet #TeamVEB

Hi everyone, Victoria here! Thank you for taking time to get to know TeamVEB! Here is just a little insight in each of us! As a team, we take huge pride in making our bride’s experience a positive one and we all look forward to meeting you in the boutique soon!

Victoria

Director

Victoria
Director

It has always been my dream to open this boutique. The dream became a reality and to this day, I still have to pinch myself when I walk through the door every morning. My passion for weddings began as a bridesmaid, aged 7, but my obsession with bridal design developed in my teens. During these years I would sneak in to a bridal shop in Bluewater and just stare at the satin and sparkle, without realising this would be my future endeavours. Before opening the boutique, I managed and worked in bridal shops, but felt frustration when the emphasis wasn’t on the bridal experience….before I knew it, Victoria Elaine Bridal was born!

As the Director, my responsibilities are varied, but you will see me popping my head in to appointments- don’t be alarmed, I just love getting involved! Usually, I am found at the desk placing your orders or arranging the next exciting event for the boutique to host.

During my spare time, I am either entertaining my tearaway pug cross dogs or being creative (due to my previous experience as an art teacher). I am also partial to a glass of prosecco and a catch up with my friends!

Favourite gown in the boutique- Too difficult! A toss up between Markle by Hayley Paige and Darcey by Eddy K Couture!

Favourite part of my job- Seeing the photos of our #vebride’s wedding day, knowing that we played a small part in making it special.

Amy

Senior Bridal Stylist

Amy
Senior Bridal Stylist

Amy is one of our original TeamVEB members, having worked at the boutique since October 2018. It is likely your appointment will be hosted by Amy. Having worked in several bridal boutiques previously, she has a vast knowledge of the bridal market and trends , but Amy’s passion lies in ensuring her brides have a magical experience when visiting our boutique. Often named in our 5* customer reviews, brides love her friendly, no pressure attitude to appointments.

As well as appointments, Amy will also be the team member to book in your fittings and take you through the alteration process with our seamstress, Jane.

During her time away from the boutique, Amy is mummy to her two children and makes sure she finds the time to unwind over a glass of gin with friends.

Favourite gown in the boutique- Ariel by Ellis Bridals has been my favourite since opening, but Marsden by Hayley Paige is also a contender for my favourite!

Favourite part of my job- I love meeting all of my brides and most importantly seeing happy tears when they find ‘the one’.

Shanai

Bridal Stylist

Shanai
Bridal Stylist

Shanai is another original Team VEB member, however began her employment in the boutique as a store assistant while she completed her Extended Diploma in Art and Design (and just so happens to be one of Victoria’s ex-students). In that time, Shanai’s confidence grew and grew and it became clear she belonged in the changing rooms helping brides find their dream gown!

As well appointments, you will meet Shanai at wedding fairs who will be only too pleased to book your appoint in the diary.

During her spare time, Shanai usually can be found spending time with her family unless it’s a Saturday night…in which case, she is out partying!

Favourite gown in the boutique- Marsden by Hayley Paige because you can create two different looks in one day.

Favourite part of my job- Talking to the brides and their families…even if you aren’t one of my brides, I will pop in for a chat!

Shi

Store Assistant

Shi

Shi started working in the boutique at the same time as Shanai, and isn’t only her colleague but also her twin sister! Shi is our support during our busiest days in the boutique and will be fetching you liquid refreshments as well as keeping us organised and on time for all of our brides! You may also see Shi at some of our busier wedding fairs offering us the vital support she is so brilliant at giving!

In Shi’s spare time, she if often creating new make-up looks and building up a portfolio for her future career.

Favourite gown in the boutique- Haruki by Hayley Paige because of the sparkly caviar fabric, the train and how it shoes off your figure.

Favourite part of the job- Being a helping hand to everyone as I’m people person!

Jane- Seamstress

Jane is a freelance bridal seamstress with over 25 years experience in the business! A talented seamstress is always a busy one, and Jane is certainly that! As well as working from Victoria Elaine Bridal with our #vebrides, she also works with another boutique as well as hosting private appointments from her home studio. You will meet Jane in your first alterations fitting, who will then work on your gown and make it fit perfectly to your form.

When Jane isn’t working, she loves nothing more than spending time with her family and animals which includes dogs and horses.
