Opus has been dressing brides for over 30 years. Find out how our Atelier can inspire, and fulfil your designer bridal dreams.
Shopping for your wedding dress should be an exciting, and wonderfully personal experience. It is a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, and one that deserves to be special. At both Opus Atelier, and our sister shop Opus Couture, we are dedicated to delivering just such a feeling when any bride walks through our door, no matter their budget. Our designer-in-chief, Sharon Hamilton McPherson has devoted her working life to bridal, and also her personal life to her brides, maintaining long-lasting friendships with many of her clients. After many years of success with Opus Couture, Sharon launched her second wedding dress shop in Scotland, Opus Atelier, to cater for the growing demand for designer bridal in this country.
Since its inception, Opus Atelier has exclusively brought four new bridal designer brands to Scotland, and subsequently paved the way for more creatively in wedding dress shopping. At our West Kilbride salon, we stock a unique range of hand-picked gowns and accessories that have been carefully chosen to offer our clients something a little more than the average. These designs have been painstakingly chosen from a range of top European bridal designers, at exhibitions around the world. In order to deliver something exclusive to the brides of Scotland. For example, we were very proud to be chosen as the exclusive stockist of the bridal designer Berta in Scotland, a show-stopping collection that our brides have loved from the moment they landed. Also, most recently we excitedly welcomed Chosen by Kyha to the Atelier, another extraordinary and exclusively stocked designer bridal brand in Scotland.
What makes the Atelier different to other designer bridal shops in Scotland?
We offer a complete wedding dress service including expert fittings, technical alterations and bespoke customisations. At Opus Atelier, we like to think of the gowns in our shop as our starting point. Then, as our brides are standing in each dress in-store, we enhance details, add trains, and take parts away to re-imagine a version of that gown that is uniquely yours. Beautifully and individually fitted, and altered for you. Beyond that, we believe our personal experience in designer bridal helps us offer an unmatched service to the brides of Scotland.
Who is the Opus Atelier bride?
The Atelier bride is every bride. It can be someone who is very fashion savvy and isn’t afraid to be brave. Or it can be someone looking for perfection, and opting for a classic and traditional look. For us, she’s all about finding and going for her dream. An Atelier bride also understands good service, and above all wants to be beautiful on her wedding day.
What is the Opus Atelier Experience?
We believe that choosing your wedding dress is about so much more than just a dress, it’s an emotional, memorable experience. Our highly trained bridal consultants have advanced knowledge of not just each of our designer brands, but also what makes the very special brides of Scotland look incredible. They will guide, advise and help you in every step of your wedding dress journey.
When you arrive at the Atelier you will find the warmest welcome for you and your bridal party. Beginning with your bridal consultation, our team will discuss your wedding day planning and discover what you are looking for in your wedding dress. Our aim is to always make our brides not only look amazing, but feel amazing on their wedding day. And so during your consultation and shopping experience, we will create a unique, personal experience tailored to your requirements. Your bridal appointment will last approximately 2 hours, giving you plenty of time to try on a wide range of styles and explore different dress options.
