Our Boutique

We understand that your wedding dress is the most important dress you will ever wear, so whatever you’re feeling about wedding dress shopping, please don’t worry … we are welcoming and friendly. We love that our job is about helping women of all ages, shapes and sizes to feel absolutely sensational. We are so excited to share our styling creativity with you and can’t wait to hear your ideas and see your favourite dress pics. Limelight has over 300 wedding dresses, so whatever your style, budget or time frame, we’ll have fun finding your dress together.

So what can you expect from your Limelight Experience ?

A warm welcome and a little tour of the shop so you feel at home straight away. A glass of bubbly (or a cuppa) while we chat about your wedding adventures so far. Our boutique is specially arranged so you can easily see the shapes of the dresses, the fabrics  and the price ranges. We begin by trying four or five dresses that you are first drawn to. Your stylist asks you how you feel in each dress and listens carefully to everything you say. Drawing all your thoughts together, she suggests other dresses to try until that tingly feeling tells you this is THE ONE! Next comes the celebration. Falling in love with your wedding dress is a magical, memory making moment involving laughter, bubbly, lots of pictures and our special lovelock bridge tradition.

Our Award Winning Wedding Shop

Finding your wedding dress makes a memory that will always stay with you. We chose our beautiful bridal shop specially with this in mind. That tingly feeling, as you walk down our catwalk in THE DRESS, is a little preview of how you’ll feel walking down the aisle on your wedding day. Limelight was once a Methodist chapel so the vaulted ceilings and crystal chandeliers make it the perfect setting for this unforgettable finding your dress moment. At Limelight you can buy your wedding dress with confidence because we are proud members of the Retail Bridalwear Association. RBA stores meet the highest standards of service in the industry and offer their clients the Bridal Protection Scheme.

Our experienced, friendly consultants will help you choose from a broad range of contemporary mohair, checked and tweed suits, traditional morning suits and dinner jackets, to compliment your  theme. Coordinate any of our suits with waistcoats in tweed, check, mohair or brocade. Choose ties, cravats, bow ties and pocket squares from a large selection of colours, patterns and fabrics to provide endless styling options for grooms, groomsmen, Fathers of the bride and groom, best men and pageboys.

Mother of the Bride and Groom Outfits

Mothers of the bride and groom should  also feel amazing on the wedding day and we love helping  them find stylish outfits that reflect their personal style, as well as the occasion. Our mother of the bride and wedding guest dresses range from classic to fashion forward, sparkly to simply sophisticated, vintage to floral and floaty.


We select our Max & Elie hats, hatinators and fascinators, with matching clutch bags, in neutral, pastel and jewel colours especially to coordinate with our Mother of the bride outfits and wedding guest dresses. Ellie designs statement millinery which is also  perfect for ladies day at the races.

Celebrating with Lovelocks

Limelight’s finding-your-dress-celebration is our very favourite thing! It involves hugs, laughter and tissues. We pour the bubbly while you write a little message on a heart shaped lovelock. Everyone goes out onto our special Lockwood Bridge… more laughter, more hugs and lots of photos as you attach your lock to our silver railings… your key is a keepsake of the day you found your wedding dress.

The Lockwood bridge

We named our celebration bridge after our much loved Dad, and Grandad, Frank Lockwood. He not only worked with us at Limelight but also with my brother and sister in law in their  local family business, Sleep Matters Beds, Honley.  https://www.sleepmattersbeds.co.uk

Frank was still helping us look after both shops when he turned 90! We dedicated the Limelight Bridge to his memory with our love and gratitude.  Read the full story in our blog:
