Due to a high demand of UK brides-to-be wanting to be able to try on their wedding shoes & accessories before buying, we are very excited to announce we have a brand new stockist Ghost Orchid Bride located in Yorkshire, northern England. WE LOVE this store because their mission is for brides to have fun exploring their own sense of style, rather than conforming to the traditional and expected. The Ghost Orchid flower refuses to behave like other flowers, rejects the rules, grows in its own direction and flowers only when the conditions are just right. They believe every woman is as remarkable and mystifying as this wild flower.
They are now stocking a variety of Forever Soles shoes, barefoot sandals & accessories available for you to try and/or purchase from their incredible store!
We had a chat to Katey about her beautiful store.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOUTIQUE.
Ghost Orchid is a modern, fashion orientated designer bridal boutique in Yorkshire, aimed at brides who are looking for something just that little bit cooler. We stock some of the most sought after, exclusive indie labels from across the globe and there is a focus on combining luxury with current edgy designs. At Ghost Orchid there is a happy, chilled out, anything goes kind of attitude which creates a really laid-back easy-going vibe for our brides. Think of a light filled space, awesome music, unpretentious modern décor with luxe accents and a little hint of industrial charm combined with a big comfy sofa, Moroccan bean bags and a super warm welcome!
WHO ARE THE CREATIVE MASTERMINDS BEHIND THE BEAUTIFUL STORE?
Ghost Orchid has been in the back of my mind since she I just a kid. With one foot in the fashion industry and an eye on bridal trends, it was only a matter of time before I took the plunge and opened my own boutique in vision of unique bridal. Something that was totally lacking in Yorkshire! I am the creative behind Ghost Orchid but it could never have been truly imagined without the real brains behind the operation, my business partner (and Mum!!) Nicole.
WHAT WILL YOUR CUSTOMERS MOST LOVE ABOUT THEIR G.O.B EXPERIENCE?
Our brides love that they can come to a store and get a stylish, luxury product and experience but in a fun, fuss-free environment. Although totally professional, there’s a really laid-back vibe in the shop and we are often complimented on this by our brides. Women have told us they were nervous about trying dresses on before they came to us or that they expected the experience to be pretentious and stuffy but leave our showroom feeling really inspired and excited. I like to think that the balance we naturally achieve with a high fashion product yet down-to-earth and personal service really sets us apart from the crowd. At Ghost Orchid we champion people’s differences and celebrate every woman’s uniqueness.
WHAT MAKES THIS STORE ONE OF THE BEST IN THE BRIDAL INDUSTRY?
Oh without a doubt, it’s the amazing labels we have. We have been so lucky and are so thankful for the brands that we carry and for them putting faith in Ghost Orchid before we even opened. You could have the prettiest shop ever in the best location but without amazing dresses, what’s the point? It’s the designers we stock which has brides coming to us from all over the country and even beyond!
