Meet the Team
Sharon - Owner
Hello and welcome to Elody Bride! I opened Elody Bride in November 2005, 3 years after graduating with a BSc in Fashion Management. With a huge passion for fashion and having won various graduates and college related prizes for my design work, I knew I wanted to specialise in bridal wear. I was very fortunate that my Bridge Street premises came up and I am still here today!
I pride myself on the fact that I know the dresses inside out. Being able to fit , alter and customise dresses to our clients requirements was my founding passion and still is today.
Life for me has changed since I first opened; I am now married and have 3 gorgeous children who keep me very busy on top of running my own business! I love getting to know people and their families in the lead up to their big day and hopefully providing a truly memorable experience.
Hollie - Bridal Stylist
I graduated in 2014 with a BSc in Business Studies and have over 8 years experience working in retail/customer service. I really enjoy the marketing aspects and business development within my role at Elody Bride and am proud of my social media influences to date. I LOVE everything Bridal! I am at that stage in life where all my friends are either getting engaged or married and over the past few years I have developed a real passion for weddings. Since joining Elody Bride, I have gained so much knowledge of the Bridal industry and have picked up the necessary skills required to help brides find their dream dress. So much so, I even started my own personal wedding blog, ‘The Wedding Doll’. I absolutely love customer service and hope every bride who leaves my appointments leaves feeling happy with the service I have provided and more importantly with their dream dress!
From a young age, I have always had a natural flair for dress-making, particularly making formal and bridal wear for family and friends.
Over the years I have gained a lot of experince working with various clothing manufacturers.
In 2007 I joined Elody Bride where I really enjoy the challenge, of producing what the bride wants to make her gown special.
At Elody Bride we all work together as a team in what is an excellent work environment.

From the moment I left school my passion lay in bridal and fashion retail, my passion since then has only grown and I now have 20 years experience under my belt. I love everything to do with weddings, bridal fashion and helping our brides find their dream dress. I feel privileged to play such a big part in each brides journey in finding the perfect wedding dress.
I have 3 daughters and cannot wait for the day to come when I’m helping them try on dresses and make the big decision.
Kim - Bridal Stylist
My passion for the bridal industry stemmed while I was studying, Fashion Management & Marketing at university for creative arts in Epsom. My first experience of bridal wear, was a project involving forecasting emerging bridal trends and creating a collection proposal for a popular bridal brand.
My role at Elody Bride involves helping with social media and digital aspects, but also taking appointments and helping brides find their dream dress – this is the part I LOVE
