Mother of the Bride & Groom Outfits
London & Manchester Now Open, No Appointment Needed

About

News

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.

What mums said about us …

I just want to say a huge thank you to Linda at your Manchester store, who helped me choose a beautiful outfit for my sons wedding in August. It was refreshing not to be "pounced on" as we walked through the door, as normally happens in most other places. We were greeted with a friendly smile and asked if we could be helped. I explained the sort of thing I was looking for and immediately, Linda knew what she had that fitted my needs. I was never pressurised into trying on anything that I didn't want too and she was only too pleased to assist me with anything that I asked. In lots of establishment you are pestered and rushed, which makes you either end up with an outfit that you didn't really want or you walk out, feeling hot, bothered and flustered, never to return, but with ease and professionalism,Linda helped me find the perfect dress, jacket, shoes, hat and bag. Even my family who were with me said that they found the whole experience pleasurable - no mean feat - as I had to bribe them with the offer of lunch, to come with me as normally they are descended upon by the staff too and really dislike the pushy assistants and their insincere attitudes!
You have a gem in Linda and you should treasure her! Once again thank you and I will tell everyone about your fabulous store and staff!
Today I collected my Mother of the Bride outfit from your boutique. The alterations that Cathy has made are superb and the time she spent in personalising my Condici outfit is much appreciated. Thank you Cathy. I would not hesitating recommending Nigel and all the staff to other friends.
We spent 2 hours in the Manchester shop on Wednesday this week and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are the most attentive I have ever come across and took so much care over helping me to choose my outfit for our sons wedding day. My husband even enjoyed it with plenty of tea, coffee and newspapers available. I tried on many outfits from a huge selection and found the one that was absolutely perfect for me. I would not hesitate to recommend this shop to anyone looking for that special occasion outfit. Lynne Jackson
