BRINGING PARIS TO YOU
FOR THE BOLD & beautiful BRIDE
Our award winning bridal boutique is located in the charming Hampshire village of Botley, home to our carefully curated collection of beautiful, elegant gowns. From the cobbled streets of Paris, to timeless lace and luxury, we’ve selected the finest designers from across the globe, all specialising in delicate designs, sheer elegance and exclusive styles.
Your bespoke experience starts the moment you make contact with us. From our first phone consultation to your exciting and luxurious bridal boutique appointment. We lead you with our expertise and guide you through our extraordinary array of designers, their exquisite fabrics and mesmerising designs. We passionately provide an unparalleled, inspirational and high-end bridal shopping experience.
Graduating with a BA Honors in Fashion and Textile design in 2009, Hannah started her creative journey inspired by fabrics, print and couture detailing. Everything about her degree lead her to the bridal world. She has always drawn inspiration from the chic, aristocratic 1950’s prominent designers such as Dior, Schiaparelli and Chanel.
Visiting bridal shows and designer events to research her dissertation and end project further fueled her obsession with fabrics, lace, layering and fit. This final academic year, and the knowledge and confidence it granted, has been combined flawlessly with Hannah’s personal style – creating the Hannah Elizabeth Bridal brand. Hannah’s love of exquisite styling, European travel and anything couture atelier chic has defined the business’ feel and approach.
Recently, Hannah has noticed a gap in the bridal industry market when it comes to offering a boutique for brides confidently shopping on their own, or those who have carefully researched the perfect style before setting foot in their carefully chosen bridal boutique. Hannah Elizabeth Bridal is big part of Hannah’s personal life and love story, operated from the heart for the modern bride…
Offering a fashion-forward, luxurious space, a carefully curated service and industry-leading aftercare has always been the aim of both the boutique and team. Ensuring the HE Bridal name has developed and continues to retain an unparalleled service reputation, and is adored by brides seeking a heartful and romantic couture experience is the ultimate aim.
Curating the feel of the boutique is an important part of the commitment Hannah has to your experience. From the stunning window displays to the exclusive collection of gowns, to the little blue door; from the elegant lace touches, the softly draped curtains and delicate colours, to the fig candles scenting the rooms, everything has been carefully selected and invested in.
Hannah’s exceptional bridal space at No. 5 the High Street has been open for nearly six years now and how the time has flown! It is an absolute privilege to have had so many brides walk down the aisle wearing a gown from HE bridal, and to know that we are such an integral and special part of their bridal experience is thrilling.
Our high points have come in the form of industry recognition at The Wedding Industry Awards; where we won Best Bridal Retailer in the South West & London, to countless features across international and national wedding industry press, with some truly inspiring editorial and blog features. The boutique is a firm favourite with Hampshire brides, something we never take for granted and are eternally grateful for. We look forward to welcoming you to the boutique soon.

“My favourite part of the dress shopping experience at HE Bridal was the wonderful Kelly – she is beautifully supportive, fun and having her exceptional advice made selecting my gown a joy. She listened to my likes and dislikes and the tranquil atmosphere in the boutique made me feel so at ease. She effortlessly made sure my Mum and sister were involved.
Taking time to educate them alongside me, ensuring they felt part of my decision process because she knew and understood the gown we carefully selected. I felt supremely confident in purchasing my dress at my first appointment because she made it impossible to not listen to her considered opinion and thoughtful directional advice. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you made the whole experience everything I could have wished for”.
