Meet Your Stylists -


Meet Claire

“I’m one half of #WB and the one that’s always on a diet… it starts every Monday! I’m obsessed with interior design and I’m constantly redecorating our house, much to the annoyance of my husband Conrad. Having been a travel agent in a previous life (this is how Mel & I first met) one of my other loves is booking holidays, but not before spending time with my hubbie and beautiful kids Charlotte & Joshua!”


Meet Laura

“I’m Laura and I literally live around the corner, so the boutique always feels like home to me. I absolutely love my role as a stylist, helping all our brides find their dream gown. Me and my partner Andrew have been together since we were 17 & have three gorgeous children together Verity, William and Arthur as you can imagine they keep us extremely busy. When I do find the time I love to eat out, see friends and go to the theatre.”


Meet Kayleigh

My love for all things bridal began after my fiance popped the question at Disneyland Paris and I said " Yes to the dress" at Wedding Belles back in 2019. I had the most amazing experience finding my dress and I knew I wanted to help other girls feel as amazing and as special as I did! In my spare time you will find me performing in musicals and singing at events. I love spending my time with my family and making people smile x


Meet Mel

“I’m the other half of #WB and the blonde curly one, well most of the time if I get up early enough! My passions outside Wedding Belles are cocktails, holidays & exercise classes (but not always in this order) I have been married to my husband Darran for 18 years and we have two not so little kids; Megan who is now away at University and Harry. You will usually find me popping in and out of appointments as I love seeing our dresses brought to life on real brides!”


Meet Kate

“My story at Wedding Belles began as a WB bride myself in 2014. My experience here was so much more than i’d imagined, so after falling in love with all things bridal I knew this was the job for me! I have a passion for fashion and if im not helping you find “the one” you’ll find me trying on the latest tiaras!! When I’m not having fun with my crazy children and partner in crime husband I’m shopping, in the gym, enjoying holidays, booking the next one or having a cocktail or three with my girls.”


Meet Kirsty

Hi everyone, my name is Kirsty and I joined Wedding Belles in April 2021 but my Wedding Belles journey began in 2018 when I became a Wedding Belles bride myself! As a WB bride I fell in love with all things bridal and i am passionate about empowering women and helping brides feel confident and amazing for their big day, it is an absolute privilege to be a part of a brides journey! I also love an engagement story! When Im not in the boutique my main role is “Mommy”! Myself and my husband Andy have two gorgeous daughters Olivia and Emilia and safe to say they keep us pretty busy!


Meet Hester

“I joined Wedding Belles in 2011 as a bridal stylist. I have a degree in Fashion and Contour and have a keen eye for style and shape. I love being part of a bride’s special moment when she finds THAT dress and knowing I’ve helped get her there, gives me great satisfaction and reminds me why I love my job. My husband Ben is my high school sweetheart and we have been married since 2011 and we have a five year old son Dougie. In my spare time I enjoy watching documentaries, shopping and spending Ben’s money!”


Meet Tracy

“I’m Tracy, born and breed in Sutton Coldfield and a busy mum of three teenagers (any advice would be greatly appreciated!) and a full time wedding double agent, at your service to calm navigate you through an array of amazing gowns, helping you find the most beautiful dress you’ll ever see. My wedding career began in bridal design working for a top London brand, so I’m well equipped to help your dress will fit you like a glove. If a bespoke gown is your dream, then I’m here to help, it’s a privilege to be a small part in our wedding journey.”


Meet Donna

Hi everyone! I’m Donna, the newest member of team belles! I am so excited to have joined the team after my very own yes moment at wedding belles back in 2020. It is a huge honour helping our brides find their dream gown and I love nothing more than hearing all about everyone’s exciting wedding plans! At home, my husband David and I have three children including identical twins….. which makes life super interesting! (but super fun!!!!) We still manage to find some time to eat out, head to the theatre and grab a cocktail or two!
