Dress Shopping With a Difference at Sharnelle Bridal
A beautiful light brick house on a quiet, suburban street located south of Wollongong is where you will find Sharnelle Bridal. Greeted by an adorable, smiling Elsa (Sharlese, Hailey’s three year old daughter), I immediately knew that I was about to have a very unique dress shopping experience.
A quaint store, built within their home, was created with the intention to make customers feel like guests, offering flexible visiting hours and an intimate setting. One look at Sharnelle Bridal’s reviews and you can see that my experience was not a once off event. Hailey not only offers a modest range of customisable dresses, she offers privacy, flexible hours and service that has been described as “Amazing, professional, affordable and accommodating”. Terms like “above and beyond” recur throughout her reviews. Hailey says this is the most important point of difference for her business “Personalised friendly service. It’s laid back. Most of the brides walk around in their bra and undies, it’s very different to a standard bridal store.”
Hailey has worked in the wedding industry for ten years, after starting when she found that there was no market for low cost wedding dresses. Over the years she has built up a network businesses within the industry who share her passion for great service at a low cost. Together they have created a “Bridal Pack” that includes a wedding dress, veil, hair, a beauty package, hair and makeup trial and wedding day hair and makeup plus local business discounts.
Sharnelle Bridal has recently become one of four stores in Australia to stock the Innocentia wedding gown range and has become a representative of the brand. Innocentia allows for customisation of their wedding gowns upon ordering. They hope to grow Sharnelle Brial into a super bridal warehouse – a one stop bridal shop.
