If you’ve been following our Stories on the gram, you’ll have spotted that your hen party fav, Team Hen is now available at new bridal destination, The Aisle Edit!
That’s right! You can now shop Team Hen IRL (not just digitally) at the freshly-un-VEIL-ed (pun-intended) bridal department store known as The Aisle Edit. Situated in a breathtaking 1840’s renovated Church surrounded by rolling hills and the charm of Saddleworth’s (Greater Manchester) countryside, this new - and truly unique - 6000 square feet bridal destination is calling. And, BOY will you want to pick up the phone.
Founded by celebrated bridal shoe designer Charlotte Mills (we’ve been fangirl-ing over her designs for a while) the new, bridal, one-stop destination offers up a truly unique experience for brides and their bride tribe. Three sumptuous floors of wedding-wear await, offering up not only the opportunity to shop your dream aisle look as a modern bride, but the opportunity to shop for your entire bridal party too, all in one beautifully curated - and totally Instagram-worthy - destination.
Founder, Charlotte Mills
“The Aisle Edit houses a curated collection of incredible, female-run independent bridal brands to provide a wedding shopping destination unlike anything else in the UK,” explains Founder, Charlotte Mills. “And what better space to create it in than a converted church? We’ve breathed fresh life into this beautifully historic building while maintaining and enhancing its original features to create something truly wow-worthy.”
Glittering bridal accessories (we’re talking everything from that pair of shimmering pearl earrings to that delicate veil and poetic bouquet of dream dried botanicals) to bridesmaid dresses (courtesy of Rewritten), elegant Mother of the Bride ensembles (meet Harper Laine Occasions), Charlotte Mills' iconic bridal shoes (naturally), a bridal studio (you’ll love Edit by Dotty - a new location from award-winning bridal boutique Dotty Bridal) and, of course, Team Hen’s must-have hen party essentials, await from within this destination’s unforgettable walls. This is not a drill, brides.
“By covering all bridal party bases, we’ve solved the problem of brides needing to get their girls together for multiple shopping trips by creating one luxurious bridal destination where they can do it all while making an epic girly day of it.”
And, why not stock up on your Team Hen favourites while you’re there? Offering up a curated mix of some of our most beloved hen party accessories and favours, you’ll love the Team Hen store. Shelves of our coveted hair slides, planners, diamond-adorned pens, candles, lip balms and more are just ready and waiting for you and your bridal party to explore (and fawn over).
“We’ve no doubt The Aisle Edit will add a unique and special experience to brides’ wedding planning journeys, and its fabulous location means it’s easily accessible for those travelling from Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and beyond!”
Plus, with a mezzanine Champagne Bar situated on the middle floor (next to the Team Hen shop FYI) why not take a break from the shopping and indulge in The Aisle Edit’s decadent afternoon tea or a glass of fizz? And, with a selfie station nearby, it offers up the perfect opportunity to capture the moment for the gram in style.
The Aisle Edit houses the following brands: Charlotte Mills, Team Hen, EDIT by Dotty, Rewritten, Harper Laine Occasions, Rebecca Andrews, MEEKA, For The Love Of Pearls, The Bobby Pin, Dove Grey, Jade OI and Horseshoe Flowers.
