Gardenia Bridal is a luxurious new bridal store located in the centre of Usk Town.

It is run and owned by business partners Kate Robinson and Letha Curtis – Kate has more than a decade’s worth of experience of working within the industry and Letha is a seamstress who does all the alterations in-house.

Both ladies had dreamed of owning a business and they made their dream a reality when they opened the doors to Gardenia Bridal on January 21.

To stand out from their competitors, the pair decided to stock exclusive designers that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else, and within its large showroom, you’ll find elegant and extravagant sample dresses from Christina Wu, White April, Eternity Bridal and Rosa Clara.

White April has already become a popular option with everyone who visits, as it captures the essence of the modern bride - soft silhouettes and distinctive lace are combined to create an effortlessly stylish look.

There are more than 220 wedding dresses from the designers available, with sizes ranging from 0-24. Prices start from £800 up to £2,000.

Each bride is measured, and a dress is made and sent from the chosen wedding dress designer, if you need any alterations upon your fitting, Letha is immediately on hand to make the changes.

As well as offering an exclusive range of bridal wear and accessories, Kate and Letha additionally offer handmade dresses for both bridesmaids and flower girls. Their wrap bridesmaid’s dresses are another popular option, as they can be dressed numerous ways, are very flattering to all bodie shapes, plus they can make your dress to match the colour or theme of your wedding.

Wrap dresses are available in two sizes - small/medium (6-14) and large/extra-large (16-24) – and are priced at £130 each.

Gardenia Bridal is by appointment only, where on weekdays appointments last up to two-hours and weekend appointments at one and a half hours. There’s complimentary refreshments and plenty of space and rooms for larger parties – another great draw to this new business.

“The feedback since opening has been fantastic,” Kate told Voice.

“Brides love the space and unique dresses that we offer, but especially our great prices, with no dress being more than £2,000.”

So, if you’re on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress, why not call and make an appointment today to see the amazing dresses on offer?
