We caught up with Creative Director, Regine Ellis, to find out more about chic London-based label Ellis Bridals…
Tell us about Ellis Bridals
Ellis Bridals is the creation of one very forward-thinking woman, Ada Ellis, who back in the 1900’s created bespoke fashion pieces for the society women of her day. When Ada met and subsequently married the love of her life, Sam, in 1910 she knew exactly what she wanted to wear and so made her own beautiful wedding dress. On her big day she was surrounded by some of the most stylish women in London and soon after she was flooded with requests for her bridal designs. The business blossomed, the couple became a family and their children grew up surrounded by their parents’ devotion to design. In turn, my son James and I have become the co-creators of the legacy that continues to charm and enchant brides globally. Ellis Bridals is now over 100 years old, a century of living heritage that continues to inform and refine the design process.
What makes Ellis gowns so unique?
When you choose Ellis Bridals, you are taking home a dress designed by an award-winning team in the UK that knows exactly how to make you look and feel how you had always dreamed on your big day.
What advice would you give to our brides starting their dress search?
Don’t be too narrow-minded. We hear it time and time again that brides went into a store with a particular style in mind and walked out with something completely different! Try on a few different shapes and styles, and let the store assistants objectively guide you in what looks best for your colouring and figure. You may be truly surprised by what dress you end up choosing!
What can we expect next from Ellis bridals?
We see the use of colour and metallic embroidery as a big trend for this coming season and have delicately applied it
to thread colouring and used it in our custom floral embroideries and laces. The
way it subtly shines in the light is really magical.
