Our Story

Hi I’m Wendy and I own The Silver Sixpence Curvy Bridal Boutique, and congratulations on your engagement and beginning your search for a wedding dress.

The Silver Sixpence is a wedding dress boutique where the curvy bride can feel special, valued and not judged, while purchasing what may be the most valued item of clothing that she will buy in her lifetime. I hope to provide a safe environment where she, her family and her friends can feel comfortable in the knowledge that she will not be sent to the back of the shop to the ‘larger’ size dresses.

So, what to expect when you visit... Try not to feel nervous, we are very laid back and we understand how you might be feeling. We have samples in sizes 16 to 32 so we will definitely have something to fit. You’re not restricted to t
he number of dresses you can try, we can do this all day! We won’t pick dresses for you, but we’ll be on hand to help with anything you need. We don’t believe in the ‘hard sell’, we want you to feel relaxed, happy and enjoy your experience of wedding dress shopping.

We offer an hour and half appointment with us; this is a private appointment and the boutique is yours to enjoy. We stock veils, tiara’s and head pieces for you to build a look that's perfect for you.

And of course, you can bring you friends and family to share your unique experience.

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 finishing 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  - heres a link  for you to click and have a look at their stuff,

So, why a curvy bridal boutique?

My daughter announced her engagement in 2019... and she also announced that the 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 have become increasingly determined to provide a service where brides have the confidence to enjoy the build up to her 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.
