My little Wedding Shop is an independent boutique established in 2011 in the beautiful market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire. Located on a pretty terrace, just off the famous Castle Walk with it’s stunning views of the Bridgnorth valley, the boutique is an intimate space where you can relax and start to explore the unique in-house bridal wear collections and meet bridal wear designer, Jennifer Bone.

Jennifer loves every moment of her job, every gown is created for her brides from scratch and her enthusiasm and love of her work is infectious!

“As a dress designer I get to work with a lot of brides who may not think they fit into the traditional wedding dress style. My brides want to feel beautiful on their wedding day, but they also want to feel like themselves. This is one of the most important parts of my work as bridal wear designer and it is something that I love to do!”

Bridal Appointments:

Visiting My little Wedding Shop is by appointment as Jenny feels it is important that brides have her full attention during their visit.

The quirky boutique is the perfect space to take time to peruse the dress collections, feel the drape of the materials and the detail of the laces Jennifer has selected. Looking for your bridal gown should be a memorable experience that becomes part of the excitement of your wedding planning journey and nothing can compare to having the opportunity to try on different dress silhouettes to see how you feel in them and how they move when worn.

My little Wedding Shops’ wedding gowns are designed not only with elegance and comfort in mind but also sustainability. The gowns are created using recycled and sustainably sourced materials including bamboo, recycled tulle, satin and Mikado’s and even fabric created from orange peel! There is no mass production, with all gowns being made to order which also means, that all fittings and alterations are included when you order a dress.

The corsetry is specially cut to provide support and structure without feeling restricted, skirts are created to hold their shape whilst staying lightweight and the chosen laces are soft against the skin.

During your visit you will be able to pick out different dress styles to try to see which silhouette suits you best and makes you feel beautiful yet comfortable. You will also be able to see how the different colour shades best suit your skin tone and try on different bridal accessories to complete your look.

Bespoke Bridal Design:

Jennifers’ bespoke bridal gowns are designed to reflect the personality of the bride, each gown is designed in partnership, bringing ideas together, exploring fabrics and drawing on Jennifer’s extensive experience and flair for design.

This process begins with a relaxed consultation where the bride can share the details of the chosen venue, the feel of the wedding that they are planning and any specific details that they would like to incorporate in their dress. Together, you start exploring different materials and colours, selecting from the array of possible laces and embellished materials. These ideas are then sketched out so you can start to visualise your dream dress and how your chosen materials will look within the design. Once the design has been finalised, your dress is then made to measure ensuring the fit and finish is just right. Each bride will see their dress develop over time with multiple fittings and the opportunity to evolve the design as their dress comes to life.

This attention to detail & design has been recognised nationally and internationally with brides traveling from across the UK and abroad to have their gown created by Jennifer and My little Wedding Shop gowns and veils have been featured in Vogue Magazine, Hello! Magazine, Bouquet & Bells Magazine, Love My Dress, Rock N Roll Bride, Unconventional Wedding Festival, West Midlands Wedding Magazine & elsewhere. 

“The whole process was an absolute pleasure too. It felt a little bit nerve-wracking to have a dress designed from scratch – especially having found nothing remotely similar to what I wanted elsewhere, to try on beforehand – but you really listened to my rough ideas and built on them to create a beautiful design, with lots of fantastic ideas. When I saw you sketching the dress during the consultation, I thought you were making notes, so to suddenly see what I’d just been trying to articulate, there, on the paper in front of me – it blew me away.” – Rachel

Previous Weddings

It is very hard to pick just three brides that I have loved working with, but I will do my best!

  1. Hayley 

When Hayley visited My little Wedding Shop looking for her wedding dress, it soon became very clear that this gown was going to be a unique experience to create! Hayley visited the boutique with her sister and when trying on dresses in the shop, fell in love with the silhouette and fabric of one of my collection designs. However, Hayley didn’t want any lace on her dress instead, she opened up a bag and pulled out a painted canvas and stated that she wanted her dress to look like that!

I love collaborating with my brides and ensuring they feel involved in the creation of their wedding dress, this is such a big part of thew wedding planning journey and creating fond memories of this is so wonderful.

So when making Hayley’s dress, I spent a lot of time researching and testing different fabric paints and techniques  that would work on her chosen fabric and then we planned in a day when Hayley came into the workshop with me and we hand painted the pieces of her dress together!

I then copper foiled over the painted fabric to go with Hayley’s theme before constructing her gown and the finished result was truly wonderful!

Hayley had her perfect dress and memories of creating it too!

“Thank you so much for making my wedding dress dreams come true. I can’t thank you both enough for creating the most beautiful wedding dress for me. I came to you with an idea and your talents made it a reality, something that I thought wouldn’t be possible, you made possible.

Thank you so much for also making it possible for me to paint my own wedding dress, it was an unforgettable experience and a memory I will cherish always. The whole experience was incredible from start to finish and I will be recommending you to every bride I meet. I can’t thank you enough. Love Hayley.”

            2. Hannah 

Hannah contacted My little Wedding Shop during the lockdowns of 2020/2021. Hannah had her wedding date planned and wanted to go ahead with designing her wedding dress as she knew we would not have a lot of time to make it! The design process was all done via zoom calls and by sending designs and fabric swatches out in the post which was exciting for us both and kept us busy during the lockdown times!

As soon as I was allowed to re-open the boutique, Hannah was my first bride into the shop to get measured and confirm her dress order. I then had just 5 weeks to create her gown and fit it to Hannah, who lived quite some time away in Yorkshire, so we had to plan in the fittings around Hannah’s very busy schedule.

Hannah’s gown was so wonderful to create, it was actually a bodice with two skirts so Hannah could change her look from day to night, but I created the outfit in such a way that it looked like one dress, so the transformation would be a surprise to everyone at the wedding. Hannah choose a beautiful, 3D lace in a deep rose pink and combined it with ivory silk and pearl embellished tulle. Creating her gown was just wonderful and to see the smile on her face in her wedding day pictures was marvellous. Hannah didn’t believe she could get the gown of her dreams due to the lockdown, but I made sure that her experience was happy and exciting and she looked fantastic on her wedding day!

“Our whole wedding / being together in Covid was very stressful and when I came to thinking about wedding dresses, I had gained a stone at least and generally had lived in scrubs for a year. We had been turned down and berated by several wedding dress shops as to why we had left it so late. I cannot describe how grateful I am for all of the work you did with me and my mum over the weeks leading up to the wedding. I really enjoyed coming to your shop every week for the design sessions and fittings.

Once again, thank you so much! All the best for the future.” – Hannah

                 3. Rachel

When Rachel visited My little Wedding Shop one of the things that was important to her was the environmental impact of her wedding day. Rachel was getting married in the woods over in Cardiff, where she was from and she knew that she wanted her dress to fit with that theme.

I designed Rachel’s dress to incorporate recycled satin and recycled tulle as well as stunning trailing greenery and yellow flowers.  Rachels dress was flowing and soft and we hid the coloured elements behind the chiffon so they would be softer and more of a reveal!

Rachels gown was all about movement, the chiffon layers were perfect for an outdoor wedding as they move beautifully in the breeze. Her bodice had a beautiful, leaf embossed georgette to add extra detail and texture to the bodice and also to set off the floral motifs. 

I loved every one of Rachel’s fittings, each fitting was with her sister and her mother who all travelled from Cardiff for the fittings and made a day out of each of their visits, adding to the wonderful experience of having her gown created for her.

I also worked with her little niece and used elements of Rachels dress fabrics to embellish a flower girl dress, so she could look like her Auntie on the day!

Rachel’s wedding was magical and she looked absolutely stunning in her gown.

“Thank you so much for accepting to design and make my wedding dress, you and your talents have surpassed all of our expectations and more! We have loved taking the journey to spend time with you, we will miss it very much. With love, Rachel (one very happy bride!)”

From the first consultation to driving away with the dress, Jenny was an absolute joy to work with. She completely understood the vision I had in my head and it was so clear how well she knows and loves her craft that I never doubted that she could bring it to life. She considered and carried out every aspect so thoroughly, from sourcing the most incredible fabric to discussing and planning every detail, making sure that the dress not only looked spectacular but also felt so comfortable and allowed me to dance all night. It was the dress of my dreams and I felt wonderful wearing it on my wedding day. Jenny is incredibly patient, understanding, skilled and knowledgeable, and is a warm, genuine and lovely person who is a pleasure to spend time with. Each fitting was a 7 hour round trip but I'd have travelled even further to have her expertise, and it was always a treat to visit to her charming boutique and beautiful Bridgnorth. It was a real privilege to work with Jenny and wear one of her creations - I cannot recommend her more highly.

My dress. My dress! It was a work of art and I felt a million dollars: like the best version of me. The shape, fabric and touches of joyous colour were exactly what I wanted, and the teal underskirt "reveal" for the evening made me feel a little bit cheeky and very ready to party! It was fab! The length and colours surprised many - but all said I looked gorgeous and like "me".

As a big girl I was so worried and anxious about a wedding dress, I didn’t even want to go into anywhere to look just the thought of trying a wedding dress on filled me with fear. Until my mum found the cutest little shop in Bridgnorth called My little Wedding Shop. My first appointment made me nervous but as soon as I met Jenny I was at ease. Jenny made me feel so special, we discussed ideas and what I might like and as my appointments became more frequent my perfect dress came to life 🙂 It was like magic. I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful gown, it made me feel amazing and I can look back forever at it and be reminded of Jenny and what an amazing, talented & kind Lady she is. I’m so grateful I found you Jenny and My little Wedding Shop . Xx

I cannot begin to tell you how special I felt on our wedding day. Knowing my dress was carefully and lovingly designed to my every desire, wish and want, was a feeling I am literally unable to put into words. You brought my dreams to life and the compliments and comments I received throughout the day literally blew me away. I will never forget every moment I had, wearing my beautiful dress. Mum was so very unwell and we didn’t think she’d be well enough to make the wedding but her determination to be there held strong, she was adamant she was wearing the beautiful jacket you’d created for her. Mum was so proud of us that day and her love for my dress was a strong as my own feelings and I will hold those thoughts so closely and dearly for the rest of my life. 
I cannot begin to thank you enough for every single moment of your brilliant talent and time. You are simply amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating the most stunning pieces that will always mean so very much to me. Love and best wishes.

Jenny, I cannot thank you enough for making me two perfectly bespoke pieces for my wedding. You made my dreams come true with my beautiful dress and the perfect finishing touch with my veil. Working with you was a pleasure. You listened to everything I wanted and worked it all into my dress, even adjusting the straps so I could dance comfortably with my husband who is a lot taller than me. The subtle touches of pink within the dress added pieces of my personality to it. I felt the most beautiful I ever had with my dress on and that is all thanks to you. It has become one of the most special items I own. Thank you again!

Visiting My Little Wedding Shop was the best decision I made during our wedding planning. I am so glad I decided to go for a bespoke dress, my dress was EXACTLY what I wanted down to the very last detail. I didn't want a traditional wedding dress, I wanted something a bit special and a bit more me, but I still wanted to look like a bride. On my first visit Jenny sat with a pad and doodled as I talked through my ideas making suggestions for how get it exactly how I wanted it and answering the many, many questions I had. They were so knowledgeable about everything - fabric types, different styles, body shapes, cut and necklines...so much stuff I hadn't even thought of! The initial sketch that she did that day was pretty much what the final dress looked like but with a few tweaks along the way. I was amazed how soon after taking my initial measurements that there was a dress ready for me to try on! It was so exciting seeing it take form. Every fitting that I had was a pleasure, the girls were wonderful at making me feel welcome and making me feel special! I had so many fittings along the way to make sure that it still fit. I lost a lot of weight during the months that the dress was being made so it had to be altered and taken in many times but they happily accommodated it and it fit like a glove on the day! When I walked down the aisle I felt like a Disney princess! Everyone commented on how amazing my dress was and everyone said how perfect it was for me, that it was exactly what they imagined I'd wear. I know every bride thinks that their dress is the best wedding dress ever...but mine totally is! It's just amazing. Since the wedding I have had so many messages about it and comments on fb/Instagram pictures asking where I got it. I can't recommend My Little Wedding Shop enough. If you are looking for the perfect dress then give them a visit. Every bride needs to feel like a Disney princess on their wedding day. Thank you so, so much.
