Interview With: Charlotte Rutter
Company Name: Ellie & Charlotte
Location / Coverage: SW London / Worldwide!
How did Ellie & Charlotte come about and how long has the business been going?
We’ve been working together for 10years this September! We met whilst doing our A-Levels and starting working together after we graduated from university in 1999, making evening dresses for family friends. We really enjoyed working together and more and more people started asking us to make wedding dresses that were different – mainly because they wanted a slinky wedding dress, not a meringue, and that was harder to find then. We were also asked to make different styles and coloured wedding dresses.
What sets Ellie & Charlotte apart from other wedding dress designers?
The simple elegance and cut of our silk wedding dresses along with our personal service. Oh and we’re perfectionists!
What’s the best thing about your job?
Finding the right dress for each bride and meeting so many lovely people and being part of their big day. We’ve met so many amazing people over the years.
Does Ellie & Charlotte have a specialist area?
Apart from our bespoke and bridal collection! I would like to think it’s our honestly and guidance about which dress suits the bride to ensure they look perfect and feel amazing on their wedding day.
