Meet Charlotte...

During times like these, it is so refreshing to see a plethora of new bridal boutiques entering into the industry with fresh, new takes on all things bridal browsing.
One of which is Charlotte Elizabeth Bridal – a beautiful new shop situated in the quaint market town of Matlock near Derby, and a brand new recruit to our luxe Supplier Guest List.

Luxury labels and a sensational service can be expected here, provided by a proud owner with a passion to find you the dress you’ve always dreamed of (and the rest!)
Introducing Charlotte…

Her Why:

“When I was little I had a shed in my garden set up like a shop, with a toy till and empty boxes. I have always dreamt of owning my own shop, and have always had a creative flair.
After successfully achieving a degree in Fashion Design at Lincoln University, I worked in numerous bridal boutiques and learnt how to provide an amazing service.”

However, struggling to nail down a full time job in bridal, Charlotte ended up working in sales – from selling washing machines at Currys and working in call centres at Appliance companies to being an estate agent for five years – quite the diverse CV!
These experiences gave her the foundation for working with people, finding solutions to their problems and ensuring they left happier – values that are implemented in her boutique today.
“I fully understand the experience of a personalised service and how important your wedding gown is to you, so I can provide expert advice to help you every step of the way to select the wedding gown of your dreams.”

Planning in a Pandemic:

After a tough year in 2020, the pandemic gave Charlotte time to reevaluate what she wanted in life.

“Life is very short and I have learnt to go for your dream, as you know one else is going to do it for you!”
She therefore took the plunge and bought a little shop on Matlock’s high street, the old post office that her great grandparents used to frequent.

Now, she has transformed it into a bridal bolthole which is set to open soon, with a captivating collection of gowns and extras for fashion-forward brides.
“I’m incredibly excited to be working alongside some of the top designers to produce my own unique capsule collection of beautiful wedding gowns and accessories.”

The Designer List:

Nicole Milano
Nicole Colet
White One
House of St Patrick
Allure Bridals
Roisin Reuss
“I feel really passionate about styling, design and the attention to detail that goes into every wedding gown.”
As a talented artist, Charlotte has also been renowned for providing unique bridal illustrations as a special memento for a bride on her wedding day.
“This is a special touch to capture a special moment which the bride can cherish forever.”
