Owner / Director
I am married to Andrew and have four beautiful boys; Thomas 7, Jack 5, Owen 2 and Joe, 1 and we live in my hometown of Kilrea. I lived in Melbourne from 2005-2009 and was a trade broker for a multi-national trading corporation. At the time, I had some clients that were were bridal shops and always thought it was a such a lovely industry to work in. I had my business management degree and a background in fashion, so I was just waiting for the right time to start my own business.
After returning to Ireland in 2009 to a recession with not many job options and an endless love for all things bridal, I decided that it was the perfect time to open my own bridal store;
and along came Verona Bridal.
My favourite part is getting girls out of their comfort zone; as the vast majority of brides come in with an idea in their head and come out with something completely different or something they never thought they would wear, but feel like a princess. Being a part of the
bride’s journey and helping them select their dress is the best part of my day.
I love the connection and magic that builds during a bridal appointment and seeing the finished product of the bride in her dream dress – you know you’ve helped her dreams come true and there is no better feeling!
I’ve grown up loving every aspect of fashion, so to get to combine my two passions; fashion and marketing, is a dream come true! I feel so lucky that I get access to worldwide exclusive bridal couture that not many people will ever get to experience.
