I achieved my degree in costume design at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 1992 before working freelance in both theatre and bridal. I opened ‘Brides at Calders’ in 1994 when I entered the world of retail, selling ready-made dresses and my own made-to-measure gowns. I sold the business after 8 years, deciding to go back to being freelance, my first love. The business grew to the point where I had to move into larger premises on Curran Road in Cardiff in 2001 spending the next 16 years here.
Rhiannon J ltd was set up in December 2008 and we have gone from strength to strength. We are now recommended by several leading Bridal shops in the South Wales area from Swansea to Newport. We have recently moved into our new premises off Lamby Way, Cardiff giving us more space and luxury surroundings for our clients.
