Nigel Rayment has been an established milliner for 36 years and has built up over 700 stockists worldwide. The NR brand has always stuck to what it knows best, the wedding industry.
Caroline & Nigel decided 4 years ago to open their first London Boutique dedicated exclusively to dresses and outfits for brides’ and grooms’ mothers, where absolutely everything a proud parent could ever need can be found under one roof. We offer a fully-comprehensive service and promise to have you looking absolutely breathtaking from head to toe.
The Nigel Rayment Boutique of Marble Arch London
NEW for 2014, Nigel Rayment Boutique of Manchester City Centre
We specialise exclusively in mother of the bride and groom occasion-wear and our team of stylists has unrivalled experience in the field. We do our utmost to provide the ultimate shopping experience and offer a personal guarantee that every client we service will look and feel heavenly.
Our range features exclusive collections from 10 leading designers in sizes 6 to 24 plus the Ann Balon range size 8-30 We also make sure that we permanently stock items in every size across the board, in order to ensure maximum freedom of choice for our customers. At any one time, we have no less than 700 items readily available in our stores.
However, most of our annual collections are delivered to us at the beginning of the year and the most exclusive, rare and limited edition designs of all sell out very quickly. As such, we always advise browsing our collections as early in the year as possible to gain access to the best of the best.
We also offer a payment plan, or the opportunity to secure any outfit with a deposit. Our summer and winter collections tend to arrive between May and June, which again represents an excellent time to see what’s new.
New for 2014, many brands have added sleeves to the dresses in order to extend the comfort and versatility of their garments far beyond the formal wedding ceremony. Designers have acknowledged the fact that mothers of the groom and bride often wish to remove their jackets during post-wedding celebrations and have therefore begun tailoring their dresses accordingly.
We carry leading designer brands including Ian Stuart, John Charles, Condici, Dress Code, Ann Balon, Teresa Ripoll, Carmen Melero, Linea Raffaelli and Paule KA. All our outfits come with matching hats or head pieces and are trimmed with accents from the dress to ensure perfect coordination.
Every piece across our collection has been created with the modern mum in mind, which means an endless archive of stunning garments of which each example is both flattering and fabulous. What’s more, we pride ourselves on offering the most relaxed and unhurried shopping experience on the High Street – we wholly appreciate the importance of the decision you’ll be making.
We don’t work by appointment as we feel that this kind of formality breeds pressurised selling and poor decision making. Instead, we invite you to pay us a visit at your leisure, spend as many hours as you like browsing and try on as many dresses as you like. And if you decide you need more time to think, we’ll never pressure you into making a decision.
Our stores are open seven days a week and no appointments are ever necessary. For both Caroline, Sean and myself, our greatest satisfaction comes in reading the feedback from mums that have visited our boutique and been delighted with the results.
It’s such a great feeling to know that we are delivering an exceptional service – it’s the very reason we’re in business.
Come along and browse at your leisure, or feel free to ask one of our experienced personal stylists for advice. We know our outfits inside and out, so just as soon as you let us know what it is you have in mind, we can make it happen. Our collection expands to a range of stunning accessories, shoes and handbags – everything you could ever need to look your best on the big day.
For a brief insight into current trends and what’s new for 2014, take a look at the video below:
Nigel Rayment’s Top Tips for that Perfect outfit. Always take into account the colour theme set by the Bride and Groom. Always try to buy the matching hat at the same time as the outfit it’s a nightmare afterwards trawling the shops looking for a colour and style that suits you. The biggest look for 2015 is a dress with sleeves so after the top table speech you can remove your hat and jacket and mingle with family and friends but still feel confident with your arms covered.

What mums said about us …
Forgive the delay, but I just wanted to thank your wonderful staff who helped me choose an amazing outfit for my daughter's wedding a couple of Saturday's ago. I think it was Kerry who guided my choice whilst coping with my husbands jokes and chatting to my other daughter. All in all a painless experience, I just wished I had more events to attend so I could have come away with more beautiful dresses.
Many thanks again,
