While Leonie Claire Bridal Boutique has only been in business for 6 years it has proven to be a wonderful full service bridal salon in Brighton, UK in a short time.
Leonie Claire Lawmon, owner, studied fashion design and has always had a passion for bridal. This led her to work with leading British bridal designers straight out of university. With her experience in couture bridal construction and also having worked in London boutiques, Leonie felt it was time to open her own bridal boutique.
Each member of the Leonie Claire team comes from a fashion background and this skill alone is what really sets them apart. When the staff has an excellent understanding of gown design and construction it enables them to advise brides accurately when they are choosing their dream dress. Having a team with this skill along with an amazing in-house workroom means they are a very talented full service bridal salon.
Putting talent aside, the staff is simply amazing when it come to making sure that the brides feel like royalty while they look for her dream dress.
Leonie Claire Bridal Boutique takes pride in the range of wedding gown collection they carry. Their collection caters to the bride who is searching for something truly unique like a bohemian or vintage style gown. And for this reason they offer a full styling consultation after the bride has chosen her gown. This is where the staff advises the bride on how to style her hair and accessorize to make even the most classic gowns have an extraordinary and fabulous twist.
Leonie Claire Lawmon advises brides to be “brave, be bold but most importantly, be true to yourself. Your wedding gown should reflect your personality and style. We always advise a bride that she should choose the gown she feels most fabulous in regardless of venue style or location. Who says you can't have a fabulous full skirt and train just because you are getting married in a pretty country barn!”
And of course we had to ask then which Justin Alexander wedding gown was their favorite, “Our favourite Justin Alexander gown is 9700 from the Signature collection. It is quite simply magnificent. What an entrance a bride would make in this dress! We love everything about it from the highly embellished pearl and crystal beaded belt to the gorgeous layering of laces. The line of covered buttons all the way down to the end of the train just finishes it off to perfection. 9700 has fabulous structure, which gives the bride a beautiful nipped in waist too. We will always have a soft spot for 8189 too as our first window dress almost 8 years ago.”
