The Seams

We're Melissa and Liam, husband and wife to be and the founders of Feathers and Florence bridal studio. 

Our founding mission was to introduce an inspiring and refreshing bridal boutique to Longridge, in the picturesque Ribble Valley of Lancashire.

However, our commitment extends beyond providing a bridal experience that you can forever treasure. Our ultimate mission is to empower underprivileged women, fostering strength, confidence, and success comparable to the transformative moment of wearing a wedding dress and uniting with your partner. To actively contribute to this cause, we pledge to donate a year's supply of period products with every dress purchased at Feathers & Florence. This initiative aims to eliminate barriers to education, opportunities, and choices that women might face due to financial constraints on essential hygiene products.

We love delicate florals, you know the type that gently bounce and wiggle in the breeze.

But, really our hearts are fuelled by thought of empowering women and helping them to discover their Taylor Swift confidence, where they feel sassy enough to walk down the aisle thinking 'no wonder my partner put a ring on it!'. That's why we were born to be in an industry surrounded by females.

Our style is inspired by outrageously beautiful architecture discovered on European city breaks. Our curation of bridal style exudes sophistication and dainty details, similar to the reclaimed 17th century Parisian chapel chandelier we tried to purchase on eBay after our trip to Paris, before we realised that the import and taxes would blow our budget.

WHY we're the perfect match

Have you ever been out with friends of friends and found yourself in a group of lively females, who light up at the chance of singing Beyonce on karaoke, and you end up feeling like the quiet, reserved one. We both know that in reality, it's the vibrant atmosphere and crowd that might be overshadowing your personality. Our studio ambiance has been thoughtfully designed so that you can relax and let your main character energy shine, so that you can fully enjoy your experience with your friends and family. 

The Feathers & Florence edit of bridal styles has been curated to alleviate the pressures of finding your perfect aisle style, seamlessly blending modern, editorial elegance with timeless, sophistication of dainty details and luxurious fabrics.

"The dresses are just gorgeous and really stood apart from others we had seen elsewhere."



"They even donate a percentage of each dress to period poverty."

From the moment I booked the appointment, the whole experience was flawless. You have the whole place to yourself and Melissa makes you feel so at ease yet excited about the whole experience. 

They even donate a percentage of each dress to period poverty. Melissa is a special person and I can’t thank her enough.

"We didn't feel rushed or pressured."

Feathers and Florence was the most incredible experience! Prior to my appointment, Liam communicated with me and informed me what to bring, what to expect and he made me feel comfortable and excited. 

We genuinely felt like royalty! Melissa was so kind and accommodating. I chose the most amazing, beautiful dress and I also chose one of the beautiful handmade veils as well which completed my bridal look. We didn't feel rushed or pressured.
