Exciting things are happening for us here at No. 9 (something we have under our hats at the moment, and I know you just hate secrets) and we cannot wait to embrace each day along with each new client.

New Studio, New Title.
We've hit 2011 with our feet running and we still haven't caught our breath. We've outgrown our back room and with the volume of traffic coming to our home, it was time for bigger space, much bigger space.
We constantly research new techniques to make sure your wedding gown or occasion wear is everything you dreamed it would be. Your wedding gown will never be simply a wedding dress. It will be the most significant gown you are ever likely to wear. The skill in designing and hand crafting a gown takes many years of experience. It means knowing your market, knowing what a client wants and guiding her when we feel her ideas may not exactly suit.
We aim to provide our clients with exclusivity. We don't stock reams of gowns, eventhough we do have a few pieces from our current collection to try. Each dress is designed to suit which means each and every one of our clients is treated as an individual. Our client's gown is designed to suit them. We don't have a style to suit a client.
And, the great thing is, our clients have a bespoke gown at off the peg prices, sometimes less!
Today I signed a contract with our new studio. We aren't moving far, but it is a rather special place to begin our new venture.
Dalton Mills was originally a woollen mill, built from 1866 onwards. It was used as the backdrop for the BBC drama, North and South. The 6th photograph, used as part of the Thornton's house, is where I signed our contract today.
To say I am delighted would be an understatement.
So, along with all of this comes a new name.
No 9, Bridal Couture.
No 9 bridal Couture, The Clock Tower, Dalton Mill will be available for call in appointments alongside the appointment basis, predominantly for clients who require fittings.
We shall be stocking some super accessories from nationwide suppliers and those more intimately local. Our aim is to support local Yorkshire businesses just like us, to enable our clients to retain their individuality, elegance and style.
We are delighted to welcome HF Couture and Tiararama to the studio along with Elizabeth Wells Lingerie.
As always, we look forward to being of service and welcome old, existing and new brides, maids and mums to our launch, a date to be confirmed.
We are commited to you. We have been and always will be.
