We invite you to share your dreams and start your bridal journey with Sealed With A Kiss.

The concept for Sealed With A Kiss started 25 years ago.  Sitting in my 9th floor office in the City of London and dreaming about my future - I was looking for a creative career to love for a lifetime.

The world of fashion and haute couture was calling, but I would need further training for the tools to launch a new career.  Whilst studying fashion design at Reading College of Arts and Technology, I designed and made my two sisters’ wedding gowns – a dream come true.

During 20 years in Charlottesville, Sealed With A Kiss has evolved to become a quality boutique offering a hand-picked collection of gowns from a variety of top designers, as well as the owner’s own collections – Sorbello Couture and Patricia Bee, custom design, and expert alterations.

We specialise in customizing almost any gown to be exactly what the bride wants – either during the construction, or with alterations.  We help guide you through the process on custom changes, so you feel confident in your decisions.

We search out other top designers with a reputation for quality and great customer service, in order to afford our brides a variety of different looks.  We are constantly complimented on our selection and variety, and are frequently ahead of the curve on future styling trends.

We are eager to guide our brides from the moment they stop through our doors, to their final fitting.  We invite you to share your dreams and start our bridal journey with Sealed With A Kiss.

“You just can’t imagine how pampered I feel and how much I have enjoyed the process of getting my dress designed and made just for me.”
