What are we all about...?

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

We’ve identified a need in the market for a reliable, professional, fun, unpretentious and welcoming wedding dress business with authentic vintage wedding dresses at reasonable prices. Our mission is to provide quality vintage wedding dresses to unique, quirky, gorgeous brides in a comfortable and welcoming setting with a follow up fitting and alteration service second to none. We source the best dresses from all over the world and bring them to the North West so you don’t have to worry about the risk of buying a dress without trying it on.

A little bit about me...

Heather Branigan

I’m Heather, the owner of Honeybomb. I’ve 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 enough’s enough, my passion is fashion and art so let’s do this! I’ve always had a crazy obsession for fashion & love of all things retro and vintage and who doesn’t 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. I hear loads of horror stories from brides about their dreadful experiences at wedding dress shops and so my absolute goal and what sets us apart is my mission to give brides the fun, special experience they deserve.

I was thrilled to bits to find the most gorgeous kooky space in the heart of Chester to open the boutique; a comfortable place where brides can share their experience with mums, dads, friends, bridesmaids, and feel truly special over a glass of fizz or a cup of tea. The decor is an expression of my personality and the Honeybomb brand - it’s eclectic, quirky, comfy and a bit random! I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved and I absolutely love my job - meeting you lovely brides doesn’t feel like work and when we find the dress of your dreams I’m 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 you’re going to visit us soon, we’re really looking forward to meeting you! x
