Meet Our Team
Bluebell Bridal®, which was founded in 2012, was born out of my love and ambition to provide unforgettable experiences and beautiful gowns for the most important moments in life. We all know that these moments are the ones we never forget. Having travelled extensively, I was inspired by various cultures, people, and fashion trends while working on a luxury hotel in-room hardcover book. However, it was fashion that quickly became my passion and obsession. From a young age, I eagerly awaited the monthly publication of fashion magazines, which ignited my love for fashion. In hindsight, I believe that fashion is the ultimate expression of culture, self, and personality – it’s your very own portrait to the world. The pinnacle of this fashion portrait is the bridal gown, which became my focus after spending 11 years contracting to Modern Wedding. I realized that finding and wearing your wondrous dress is a life journey you never forget.
With direct experience working with international bridal design houses, I founded Bluebell Bridal® to elevate and revolutionise the bridal dress buying experience. Our goal is to make this journey joyful, beautiful, and memorable for you, the bride.
We want to provide you with the most expressive and personal garment of your life – your own portrait. I invite you to join myself and my team on your bridal journey.
Together, let’s create a truly unforgettable memory that you will cherish and always look back on with smiles and joy.
