So, you’ve got the princess-cut sparkler on your ring finger, and now you need the fairytale wedding gown to match, but with a bamboozling choice of bridal styles – from shimmering ballgown to sleek fishtail – where do you start? We’d suggest you enlist the help of modern-day fairy godmother Sue Lovell, owner of beautiful bridal boutique SNOB, in Manea.
Sue has been working with brides since 2008, and is friendly and professional, offering a personal, one-to-one service, in which clients feel cherished not rushed.
She stocks her own label wedding dresses – It’s Personal – designed for ‘real women’ with body confident styles which can be customised by trusty seamstress Julia for a perfect fit.
Sue specialises in American brand Morilee, created by famous designer Madeline Gardner, featuring dreamy styles with a soft, romantic allure. She also stocks Morilee’s Julietta Collection, crafted to fit and flatter plus-size brides, with stunning silhouettes and intricate detailing.
Sue is a huge advocate of Morilee, as four years ago, a car crash left her with a broken back and shattered ribs, and of all her suppliers, Morilee were incredibly supportive while she quite literally, got back on her feet.
Alongside her elegant gowns, Sue stocks a range of bridal accessories including veils from Soham-based Elizabeth Dickens, and tiaras.
Prior to launching SNOB, Sue owned a mobile phone business, but was delighted to move from fast-paced sales into the happy world of weddings. The close bonds she forms with her brides are incredibly satisfying, and she considers it a privilege to share in the joyful moment when they say yes to the dress. She even offers a service to turn wedding frocks into adorable christening gowns when brides begin to expand their families, so the relationship extends far beyond the final dress fitting.
