"It has always been a dream of mine to own my own bridal boutique and run my own business. Some days I do have to pinch myself that I'm actually doing what I love. Getting to be a part of such a special time is a complete honour. Seeing so many gorgeous girls seek us out on their Bridal Boutique wish list is so heartwarming.
Outside of being the original #PearlsGirl, I'm a very proud mum to Tobias, Theo and William. Sam is the man in my life, and all round technical support, handyman and as he likes to think interior designer for the boutique!
Alongside running the boutique, I also mentor other bridal boutique owners and mumpreneurs to build and grow their businesses in a way that works for them.
If you hadn't already guessed it my guilty pleasures are anything pink, from wine to stationary. I am a massive foodie and a convert to podcasts. I just wish we could actually be in the car for long enough to get into a good old crime story!"
Fave Dress - Snow from our Rachel Rose collection. I love the cut of the bodice and that cheeky little show of the leg!
My Secret Talent - I can sing and play the Saxophone!
Senior Bridal Stylist
It’s safe to say I love all things Weddings and absolutely adore hearing the stories and memories made as couples go on their wedding planning journeys. With a long background in the hospitality and coordination side of weddings, being a senior stylist at Little Pearl has been a fabulous addition to my wedding knowledge and a role that makes me very happy!
Outside of the boutique, my life is consumed with my husband Peter and two children; Poppy, aged 7 and Chester, aged 6. We have a busy social life and like most parents spend our time playing taxi driver for our children to various clubs and activities. We have a small AirBnB guest suite which also keeps me busy and we are currently planning and designing a shepherd’s hut for more guests to enjoy visiting our home in Nunnington.
My guilty pleasure is all things Sweet! Having grown up in Beverley near Burgess ice cream parlour, it’s been an addiction ever since childhood, whoops!"
Fave Dress – Having been at the boutique 4 years now, my Favourite dress does change regularly as new dresses arrive. But currently "I love the unusual pattern and sliming ruche detail on Evie Young Elodie and the tailoring and sexy simplicity of Rachel Rose Clarity”.
My Secret Talent - "I can tap dance!"
'Working at The Little Pearl is like no job I’ve ever had before. The buzz I get from helping a Bride on her journey to find her dress is just the best feeling ever. It’s so rewarding and just such a happy place to be. The ladies I work with are the most inspiring yet down to earth people and have made me feel so welcome.
I live in Thornton – le- Dale with my husband Mark. Together and we have renovated our house and got our puppy Pickwick who turned out much…much…much bigger than expected! Then to top it all off we got engaged and decided to plan our wedding in 4 months. It’s been one heck of a year!
You’ll normally find me out and about exploring the local area with Pickwick up to my knees in mud or in my Kitchen creating things. I love working with faux and dried flowers to create unique and bespoke creations. I dry all my own flowers and really enjoy the process of taking a beautiful living thing and bringing back to life to be enjoyed once again.
My guilty pleasure is eating my husbands chocolate and then telling him he’s eaten it and that he just doesn’t remember. It’s really shocking how often that works!!
Fave Dress - Tricky one, anything Willowby or Abella!
My Secret Talent - I have what some people call a ‘Too much Gene’ i.e more is more and you can never have too much. I always go that one step further and safe to say, I’ve never regretted it!
