about us

"The language of friendship is not words but meaning"

Hey! We are Claire and Mel, and we are very proud founders and leaders of our gorgeous Midlands wedding dress shop Wedding Belles of Four Oaks! We have been best friends (or surrogate sister’s as we call it) for over 21 years and counting. Having no sisters of our own you can see how important we are to each other and how our friendship has grown.

We have been there for each other through our own marriages, births of our beautiful children Megan, Charlotte, Harry & Joshua and we have supported one another even through times of need.

Our firm belief is that friendship is one of the most important things that can bring people together. We value that brides want to include their closest friends and family by having them present when they experience that magical life-defining moment of finding “The One”, and we cannot wait to welcome you to our bridal studio to help you have the most amazing experience.


Wedding Belles was born from our passion and love of all things girly, sparkly, pretty and bridal in 2007 and we have come along way since. We feel very proud of how our wedding dress shop has grown, and how it has now become one of the leading “go-to” wedding dress boutiques in the Birmingham the West Midlands & beyond.

Your Wedding dress appointment is more than just visiting a Midlands wedding dress shop. Booking your appointment with us in our Sutton Coldfield bridal boutique is a special and exciting time, and we feel privileged to be part of it.
