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.

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.
