Hi! My name is Suzanne Heavens and I am the Proprietor of Heavenly Brides
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to own my own bridal shop. I
remember making scrapbooks of my dream wedding at the very young age of six and
drawing sketches of my ideal wedding dress.
I envisaged a Cinderella style of affair complete with glass slippers and horse
drawn carriage! When it came to organising my own wedding, of course I relished
every moment of the two years we took to plan it.

shops was less desirable and I vowed to myself back then that if I ever did own
my own bridal business, the surroundings would be fun, informal, honest and

must have enjoyed it!

accessories, we opened the doors to Heavenly Brides & Belles on 8th December
I am extremely passionate about weddings and the bridal industry and I take a
genuine interest in my customers’ plans and ideas. I am constantly scouring
websites, magazines and visiting trade fairs to find out about the latest bridal
trends and designers, but inevitably I believe that buying a wedding dress is
very much a heart-led process.

When Suzanne finally decided to open her own bridal boutique I was absolutely
A lot of customers comment on how well we work together and what a nice and fun
experience we offer to people.
We are both very down to earth; we are honest and kind with our opinions and
like to make customers feel relaxed and at ease – dress shopping can be a nerve
wracking time for some brides and mums!
I love chatting to the friends and family of the bride and I make a mean cup of
