What are we all about...?

We are an independent wedding dress business, specialising in authentic vintage wedding dresses.

Weíve identified a need in the market for a reliable, unpretentious wedding dress business selling unusual, authentic vintage wedding dresses at really reasonable prices. Our mission is to provide quality vintage wedding dresses to unique, quirky, gorgeous brides. We source the best dresses from all over the world and bring them to the UK. Plus we can recommend a fabulous seamstress who specialises in vintage fabrics should you need any alteration work.

A little bit about me...

Heather Branigan

Iím Heather, the owner of Honeybomb. Iíve always been creative and into fashion; I used to love dressing up and creating things as a kid. I gained my degree in Fashion & Textiles many moons ago, but due to financial commitments and one thing and another, like a lot of people, I ended up drifting into a 15 year corporate career.

In 2013, I thought enoughís enough; my passion is fashion and art so letís do this! Iíve always had a crazy obsession for fashion & love of all things retro and vintage and who doesnít love a wedding so it felt absolutely right to start up a vintage wedding dress business...and Honeybomb was born! I created the brand in Autumn 2013 - running the business from home. The name itself comes from my nickname HBomb and I think it epitomises the Honeybomb style; fun, quirky and retro.

Until recently, I ran the business from a gorgeous kooky space in the heart of Chester. However, the arrival of my beautiful son Freddie has turned life upside down so the boutique has temporarily closed and the business is now running online. I hope to re-open the boutique at some point in the future, but for now, the online business allows the price range to be really competitive.

Iím so proud of what Iíve achieved and I absolutely love my job Ė speaking to you lovely brides doesnít feel like work and when we find the dress of your dreams Iím so proud and happy to be part of that moment.

Thanks to everyone who has visited Honeybomb for helping to make my dream come true and if youíre thinking of buying a dress from us soon, weíre really looking forward to speaking to you! X
