    "Hello, and thanks for checking in with us!"

    "Along with my mum Denise, we opened Petticoat Lane Bridal in December 2010 after years of research and planning. I studied Geography at Queens University, Belfast and worked locally for several years before taking the plunge to pursue my dream and I have never been so glad I did!
    I love meeting brides to be and working with them right through until their big day! Very often a Petticoat Lane bride becomes a friend. We pride ourselves in excellent customer service, unique, show stopping stock in beautiful surroundings.
    Life has changed drastically since we first opened, I am now a wife and a mum to the most beautiful boys, Harry and Freddie! To say life is busy is an understatement but I wouldn't have it any other way! My favourite things in life apart from my boys are socialising with friends and family, baking and cooking, eating out, travelling and my phone (yes, I'm a social media addict)!"

    "Hi there, I'm Christine. I am 32 years old and am happily married with 3 wonderful kids to Katie's older brother.
    I work in Petticoat Lane Bridal on a part time basis and have done so since opening. I have a huge passion for the bridal industry in general with also being a make-up artist in this field.
    The novelty knowing that every bride walking through the door daily, may have a different style or idea in mind-makes my job so intriguing!
    I feel that with a friendly approach, the brides receive a relaxed atmosphere and their appointment is memorable while finding that 'perfect dress.'"

    Hannah

    "Hello, I'm Hannah. I have been part of the team here at Petticoat Lane Bridal for over 2 years now.
    I graduated from university with a degree in textile art, design and fashion, so working in this industry is perfect for me! In my spare time I enjoy shopping, cocktails and catching up with family and friends! I am also newly married myself, so I love how I can continue to stay in the wedding bubble whilst I'm in work!
    Helping a bride choose her dream wedding dress is a wonderful job to have! I love being a part of this experience and getting to know each bride individually, the style of dress they would like and the plans they have for the big day! It's hard to pick a favourite designer as I love styles from them all, the structured fishtail gowns from Enzoani to the statement embellishment on the Hayley Paige gowns."

  • Paula

    Paula

    "I'm Paula I've been working in the bridal industry for around seven years now and have been part of the team here at Petticoat Lane since we opened.
    I am married with three beautiful boys, who keep me on my toes. I love dancing, socialising and meeting new people. Which is why I love working at Petticoat Lane.
    Currently my favourite designer is, Enzoani. I love everything about their dresses, from the details to the structure within. I am also a big fan of the designer Charlie Brear. I love how her unique style of dresses allow each brides personality to come through."

  • Elle

    Elle

    "Hi I'm Elle, after finishing my fashion and textiles degree I got drawn into the world of bridal where I have been working for the last 14 years.
    I started off in London making and altering dresses before moving to Belfast two years ago to work at Petticoat Lane. I love fabrics and beads and spend hours walking round shops collecting samples to design with. I love to travel and explore new places, meeting new people and listening to their stories.
    My favourite designer is Eliza Jane Howell, her dresses ooze glamour and decadence and would make any bride feel amazing on her big day."

  • Shannon

    Shannon

    "Hi, I'm Shannon, I've recently completed my university degree and have been working as part of the team at Petticoat Lane for nearly 4 years now.
    I love socialising and meeting new people, and I also love fashion- which is why I love my job so much! Getting to meet people at one of the most exciting points in their lives and helping them choose their perfect wedding gown, tailored to their individual style and personality is the most enjoyable experience!
    I love fitted styles and anything with sparkle or a quirky edge, which is why I love the designs by Badgely Mischka the most! Their silhouettes are always faultless and classic but their designs and detail are so unique and striking- the perfect combination! I also love Eliza Jane Howell's designs for a bride that's looking for all-over sparkle. Again, the shapes of the gowns are amazing, but with styles ranging from a 1920s style dropped-waist, or the classic fit-and-flare, these gowns add a twist to the traditional bridal gown with a touch of 'Old Hollywood' glamour."
