Meet the Team
Director of The White Closet
As founder of The White Closet Ltd, Nikki’s inspiration for creating a bridal company was borne out of her struggle to find her own wedding dress and the disappointing experience she received on her dress journey.
The former journalist set out to bring some of the industry’s most talked-about bridal designers to Manchester, designers who are not afraid to push the bridal boundaries.
Her aim was - and continues to be – to give brides an unrivalled wedding dress experience and styling advice from her talented, creative and friendly team.
Likes: Instagram, interiors, fashion, travelling and spending time with her husband and growing brood.
