At Browns Bride we like to think of ourselves as a One Stop Shop – we carry a wide selection of luxury items for the bride; from the veil right down to the shoes. There are certain things however, that we cannot provide – which is why we have compiled a Little White Book. A specialised list featuring the best in the business; from flowers to make-up artists. Below we have shortlisted our favorites and written a bio on each one, featuring their recent work and upcoming events.
