Last update: March 2024

Emily James Bridal is a new intimate wedding boutique situated in leafy Chislehurst, Kent. The boutique has been designed to give brides the ultimate one to one experience with exclusive use of the boutique for every bridal appointment.

Choose from a fantastic selection of wedding gowns handpicked by Jo the owner based on her preference for supporting UK based brands.

We stock dresses from UK manufacturer Alan Hannah. All the wedding gowns are proudly and ethically made in London. With over 25 years of experience the dresses are designed by Marguerite Hannah who is one of the most respected and experienced couturiers working in Britain today. Marguerite has been awarded designer of the year on seven occasions and has been nominated for Designer of the Year for 2023

Our other UK based brand is Romantica of Devon. This is a family owned and run business since their creation over 30 years ago. The business was started by Sally Waddington and her husband Mike. Sally being the talented designer and Mike the sales director they started the business in a small factory with the assistance of twenty machinists in the heart of the Devon countryside. Romantica have also been nominated for an award for 2023 as Bridalwear Supplier of the Year in the UK.

Our final collection is the Emily James Private Collection. These dresses are exclusively found in our boutique and embrace the enchantment of beaded elegance for that extra touch of glamour on the big day.

In addition to the above collections, Emily James Bridal is also offering a more sustainable choice of Wedding Gown. We have a “preloved” and ex-sample collection in store that are available to purchase off the peg. These are dresses which not only tell a beautiful story but also contribute to a greener tomorrow.

Meet Jo the heart behind 'Emily James Bridal.' With 25 years of marriage and a lifetime in the local community, she infuses family values into every gown. Her shop, named after her children, echoes a legacy of love, commitment, and a passion for making dreams come true
