Tracy

Director/ Senior Stylist 

Hi I am Tracy, I have worked for Jodi’s for 23 years now. The company was started by my mum Di and auntie Jo ,which is where it got its name JODI. I also have a daughter that works with us on Saturdays. Working here is my true passion and I absolutely love everything about my job. From your first to final fitting with us I am here to advise and guide you through the entire experience, I will even have a little cry with you when you find the one! We pride ourselves on making any custom changes and going that one step further for you. Most of our staff are family or we have worked together for so long feel like family which I think is an important part of this big family occasion. The designers we stock are (we believe) are the best in business, We Have been Maggie Sottero stockists since they arrived in the UK almost 30 years ago! They are world renowned and a truly leading global brand.  And of course Stella York, The designs are so soft, so feminine and flattering The designs are truly unique and recognisable. Between all of our designer collections the cover all themes, and because they are so beautiful made, it makes our job easy to find a stunning gown for your day. We have also carefully hand picked our accessories to complete your look and compliment your gown.

 Ashlee

 Junior Stylist

Hi I’m Ashlee, I’m the youngest full-time member of the Jodi team and have now worked at Jodi Bridal for 4 years. 

The best part of my job is getting to meet all the beautiful brides-to-be and helping them find their dream gown. 

I have been lucky enough to have seen so many different trends, styles, shades and designers. It’s hard to say my personal favourite gown but I’m very partial to a subtle sparkle.

Over the years and the many bridal parties that I’ve tended to, I’ve gained the knowledge and experience to guide and advise each particular individual on gowns and accessories, that will compliment their special day.

I also feel extremely fortunate to work alongside not only my colleagues, but people I class as family and close friends.

Oh, did I forget to mention the biggest perk of all? Sampling the new arrival gowns, wondering when my turn will be!

Allie

Menswear Adviser / Junior Stylist

Hi, my name is Allie and I’m one of the newest members of the Jodi team, having worked here since August 2019. As well as working with our beautiful brides I also take care of our Menswear department, helping our grooms and their wedding parties look perfect for the big day. There is always lots of banter and good natured teasing at our menswear fittings. Lots of ‘ball and chain’ jokes aimed towards the groom to be! While there may not be quite the same emotions that the bride gets when she finds her dress, there is definitely still a ‘moment’ when all the boys are looking smart in their suits and everything starts to become very real for the groom! It’s always so lovely to see. 

In our bridal boutique we have so many beautiful dresses and it’s hard to pick a favourite because every dress looks different on each bride that puts it on. You just can’t beat watching a bride find their perfect dress, it truly is a magical moment. 

Jodi’s is a wonderful place to work and staff are so much more than work colleagues we are a little Jodi family. What is not to love when your job description is ‘making dreams come true...’

I am proud to be a part of the alterations team at Jodi's.We work very closely with each other to make sure everything is perfect.The great thing is that all alterations are done in house so they can be done much quicker if need be, and any little tweeks can be done straight away.

I take great pride in my work and that I offer a high standard of alteration. Anything is possible !

I also love that even though I am behind the scenes,when I am doing alterations to a dress that I am playing a part in the brides special day.It means a lot to me.I cannot imagine working and having so much fun as I do at Jodi's..x

Nikki

Senior Seamstress

Hello I'm Nikki, I have worked in bridal for over 20 years and in that time, Jodi is part of my family heritage, with my mum being Jo from Jodi.

I have acquired a very real respect and understanding of the way we wish to be seen on our wedding day.  The dress and how you feel in it is so important to me and has always been the part of my job that I love so much.

I have had many roles whilst in the wedding industry – I have designed for bridal wear companies, designed, manufactured and retailed my own collection of bridesmaids’ dresses and made bespoke gowns.  As a professional seamstress and gown technician I have altered many hundreds if not thousands of bridal,bridesmaid and flower-girl dresses.

I hope that my knowledge and skill can help contribute to making you feel amazing on your big day.  I look forwards to working with you and feel truly honoured to be part of your magical experience.

Hi, I’m Joe and I’ve worked at Jodi for over a year now and I enjoy every minute of it. My favourite part of my job is working with Ange and learning new things every day with each garment that comes through our studio above Jodi’s. I love when we get to do custom work for clients and I can help by putting my pattern cutting skills to good use to get the fit just right. I’m excited to work more with the Jodi Team helping to tailor your garments to perfection so that the vision of your dream wedding will come true.
