Old about us page (2014)

The Wedding Garter Co launched in February 2014 on Love My Dress. Since then The Wedding Garter Co has sold garters all over the world (and received some lovely reviews to show for it!), opened a boutique and added to their little team. The garters you see have been featured in every major magazine and online blog, The Wedding Garter Co is even a Style Me Pretty approved supplier. To cap it all in October 2014 You & Your Wedding Magazine Awards, just 9 months after launching, shortlisted The Wedding Garter Co in their 2015 awards. 

“I can’t deny that the awards parties and the recognition that come with them are fun. The smiles that last for days though; they come from the reviews and feedback of our brides.” Sarah Jane

With a small team of skilled craftspeople The Wedding Garter Co operates from the overwhelmingly beautiful town of Bradford on Avon near Bath, England. Every bead is hand sewn, every pattern hand drawn and every piece of lace hand cut; we can only do this by selling direct to brides online and via our own boutique. You won’t find our garters anywhere else.

Sarah Jane is the principal designer at The Wedding Garter Co. A graduate of the ancient and prestigious Cordwainers College, now part of London College of Fashion. Her background was originally handbag design before founding Britten Wedding Accessories, sister to The Wedding Garter Co, in 2011.

“Designing for brides is such a joy and very addictive. I love the focus that comes with creating pieces that will be cherished for decades or, hopefully, generations.” Sarah Jane

Sadly most Garter Co brides are too far away to pop into the boutique but it’s not a problem at all. Everyone in the workshop and boutique are accessible if needed, just give us a call. If you would rather e-mail that’s fine or even use our instant chat service. Many people prefer to order by phone and that is absolutely fine!
