The end of 2014 saw Gaynor relocate Willow And Lace from a home-based business in Cardiff, to a real bricks and mortar shop in Cheltenham.
The business now occupies half of the ground floor at Cocoa Couture on Clarence Parade – a must-visit venue for brides in Cheltenham and attracting many from further afield.
This year sees Cocoa, run by designer dressmaker Cara Wagstaff, celebrate 25 years Trading as Cocoa.
The two bridal businesses side-by-side are a perfect match. “Gaynor is a huge asset to the shop,” says Cara, “and Willow And Lace offers an imaginative complementary service for my brides. As a bridal studio, we very much focus on making every bride feel individual and beautiful. Every woman knows how important the dress is… but it’s the details that make the day perfect,” she concludes.
Willow And Lace’s bouquets and designer headwear is the perfect addition to Cara’s couture offering.
Gaynor can incorporate materials and colours used in Cocoa’s couture creations in her own matching bouquets and even table decorations – delivering the perfectly coordinated wedding.
This new ecommence website and a rebranding exercise sees Willow & Lace entering a new and exciting business chapter.
Along with Cara and in-house wedding photographer, Suzie Mackie – who provided most of the imagery for this site – there’s more reason than ever for brides-to-be to pop in to 9 Clarence Parade, Cheltenham.
