Welcome to Glamour
Glamour Bridal is a team of 3 ladies, who LOVE, LOVE, LOVE wedding dresses, with a passion for helping!
As a bride, you need all the help you can get right? Is it the right shape? Does your bum look big in it? Will your husband-to-be like it? You’re in ‘Bride Country’ now and planning this huge event called a ‘Wedding.’ In our experience, brides are driven by one desire, for everyone to have an awesome time sharing your special day, and for you to look and feel your absolute best. In the middle of all that, you’re promising to spend the rest of your life with that person standing by your side at the end of the aisle!
One thing we get told the most is ‘you’re so normal and friendly’. Yep thats right, that’s us! As you can tell by the photo to your right, we love a good snapchat filter (….and gin and prosecco), but what we really want to do, is give you the benefit of all our experience, not only as a stylist who really wants to help you find that feeling inside that suddenly says ‘YES!!! This is it…MY dress! We’ve also been brides ourselves, and know just how much is involved in planning the event as well as trying to be the happy smiling bride-to-be.
So, welcome to Glamour Bridal – Luxury Boutique Experience – Bolton’s premier bridal showrooms set in the foreground of the beautiful Bolton Parish Church in the historic area of Churchgate, and easily reachable within Bolton town centre. If you love gin and prosecco we’ve got the fabulous Hogarth’s just across the road…..so don’t forget to book a taxi home for when you’ve finished celebrating!
We believe that finding ‘The Dress’ is so much more for a bride, than the moment you say ‘Yes To The Dress’ It’s about the vital role of support we provide, right up to collecting the dress in the days leading up to saying ‘I Do’. We don’t just sell you the dress, hand you a list of alterations companies and send you on your way. We are with you for the marathon, not just the sprint and trust us when we say, whatever question you think may be totally ridiculous, we’ve heard it, several times already! 🙂
Our bridal story is now in its 7th year and in that time we are proud to say that we have looked after 100s of brides and their bridesmaids. We love what we do! The best people to tell you about us are our very valued #GlamourBrides who have taken the time to write to us, along with images from their big day. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love seeing a ‘Real Bride’ in action! Click here ‘Our Brides’ to see. Undoubtedly, the best moment for our brides is finding ‘The One.’ For us, it’s when we get the photographs and see our brides on the wedding day, when all the planning has come together and they are looking absolutely stunning.
As well as helping brides in our beautiful store, we also take time out of the boutique to actually visit the bridal designers and their shows to see each and every single dress, veil and headpiece we choose, making sure they are as well made as they are beautiful and only work with designers we know are going to give us the same service we give to our brides. That’s why the boutique is home to a fantastic range of world class designer labels, specially selected to offer you quality, value and outstanding beauty to ensure that you look absolutely amazeballs on your big day.
We look forward to meeting you
Owner, Creative Director & Social Media Manager
Hi, I’m Debbie, the owner of Glamour Bridal and I’ve been mad about wedding dresses since Princess Diana stepped out of her carriage in 1981 to marry her prince (yes I really am that old!) Opening my own bridal shop has been a dream of mine since I was 9 years old and I feel very fortunate to be able to realise one of my dreams in life – not many people get the chance! With a solid background in customer care and sales, my real passion in life is a drive to help people, so I feel life in bridal is a perfect fit for me – brides need all the help they can get right? When I’m not at Glamour HQ or working on our social media platforms, you can find me at home with my family indulging in the odd glass of prosecco or a vodka & tonic 🙂
Ideal Groom : Noel Gallagher (its all about the charisma….)
Dress of the moment : Naomi
Bridal Stylist & Assistant Manager
I’ve been obsessed with wedding dresses for as long as I can remember and when I’m not at work helping all our lovely brides to be, you can usually find me watching ‘Say Yes To The Dress’ on TLC (Monte from Atlanta is my favourite). I’ve accumulated over 20 years experience in various different retail settings, and in 2012 landed my dream job working in a bridal boutique with dresses and brides EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! It doesn’t get any better.
Ideal groom : The Rock
Dress of the moment : Nicolette
Bridal Stylist & part time #GlamourGirl
I first visited Glamour Bridal as a bridesmaid for my best friend back in 2012. Being blessed with height and curves, Debbie & Julie asked me if I would like to model for them at their wedding fayres and soon I was strutting my stuff on the catwalks as a #GlamourGirl. I have 10 years experience in estate agency, and more recently moved into conveyancing, so you could say I have an indepth knowledge of just how emotional it is to buy a house. A bride is exactly the same! So when the position came up for a part time bridal consultant I knew I could combine my experience in customer care with my swishing on the catwalk. When I’m not selling houses or wedding dresses, you can find me keeping a beady eye on my beautiful 2 year old daughter Ruby, who also loves to strut her stuff in my extensive shoe and handbag collection.
Ideal groom : Robert Downey Junior
Dress of the moment : Naomi….obvs!
