Our Story

Congratulations on your engagement and beginning your search for a wedding dress.


I’m Wendy and I own The Silver Sixpence Curvy Bridal Boutique, here I am with my daughter Ellie, who was the inspiration for the journey I took to open a boutique specialising in curvy bridal wear.


So, why a curvy bridal boutique?

My daughter announced her engagement in 2019... and she also announced that she was terrified to go and look for a wedding dress.

Ellie has always struggled with her weight and I wanted her to have a lovely experience of trying on wedding dresses.

I became increasingly determined to provide a service where brides have the confidence to enjoy the build up to their special day regardless of her dress size.

I have struggled with my weight too, and I'm a yo-yo dieter, but I'm passionate about clothing and I'm so frustrated by the limited choice available for plus size women today.

So, if you would like to come and meet us, it’ll be great to hear from you.

Hope to see you soon

Love Wendy x

OH Dear!

well it was 1992





I live with my husband of 28 years and our daughter Ellie. She is 22 years old and just finished her degree.

We also share our home with 4 rescue cats, which can be a little chaotic at times. Christmas is always interesting.

We also have a son, Rob, who is married to Becky. They are wedding photographers with their own business - Paylor Photography  - here's a link  for you to click and have a look at their stuff.
