About us

Nigel Rayment has been a milliner for more than 40 years and, as a brand, we have built up over 500 stockists worldwide.

As a family business, we have always focused on what we know best – weddings. In 2010, we opened our first boutique in London’s Marble Arch as a one-stop-shop for Mother of the Bride Outfits and Mother of the Groom. The success of the London boutique, managed by Nigel’s wife Caroline, led to the opening of a central Manchester boutique, which is managed by son Sean.

“As a family, Caroline Sean and I are completely focused on providing exceptional service  – providing a friendly and welcoming environment with the best occasion-wear designers under one roof. We are also lucky enough to have a wonderful team of stylists in our stores, who love working with you to find your dream outfit”.

Specialist Advice

Nigel Rayment have extensive specialist knowledge of what works and really do understand the need to find ‘the one’. We offer a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and many clients spend two or three hours browsing and trying on styles, until they find that one special piece. Our London and Manchester boutiques are open seven days a week during the busy wedding season and we do not operate an appointments system – believing that places pressure on customers – preferring to encourage you to visit at your convenience and take your time.

If you bring along a few ideas of the look you are after, we can do all the hard work for you and suggest stunning outfits, hats and accessories for weddings, special occasion dresses or even outfits with hats and fascinators for race day events

We help many ladies looking for a particular style of outfit, so if you supply your contact details we’ll let you know when your dream dress has arrived. And, of course, you are free to contact us for advice by phone or email at any time.

When you do find your dream outfit, we offer a deposit scheme (with no hidden costs or credit checks) and you can even spread the cost by paying in instalments.
