Bridal consultant sets out to turn dreams into reality

A BRIDAL consultant has set up shop in Sheffield with the aim of turning wedding dreams into reality.

Lisa Burton launched Bridal Consultant in 2003 but has chosen the city as a base in the hope of expanding the business.

The company specialises in exclusive destination weddings in New York, Costa Blanca, Cyprus, Santorini and Zakynthos in Greece.

Ms Burton has organised more than 600 destination weddings and has recently moved to offices to The Globe Works on Penistone Road.

She said: “Having my own bridal consultancy is my dream job.  I’ve always wanted to be amongst other creative businesses and like minded people and feel I have found the perfect place here in Sheffield.

“A lot of old buildings around here are being transformed into new flats and the area seems to be growing in popularity despite the recession. Kelham Island also has great access from the M1, which is perfect for clients who come to visit from all over the country.”

She added: “Our consultancy room has a strong ‘bridal’ feel where the clients can come and talk to us about their dreams face to face before we make them a personalised wedding plan.”

Ms Burton’s dicovered her passion for destination weddings whilst working on a cruise ship, where she observed the ‘conveyor belt’ style weddings and quickly realised that couples choosing to get married abroad were not receiving the level of service that they deserved.

The Bridal Consultant guides couples through all stages of the wedding planning process, with all planning and legal work being administered in the UK, and full legal support using English contracts.
