bold fearless glamorous seductive

Welcome to Barefoot Bridal.  We are a unique little West Sussex Bridal Boutique set in a beautiful old forge nestling at the heart of the South Downs and we sell wedding dresses by British Designers.

Step inside the cute little porch and walk under the old oak beams to see 3 fabulous ranges of wedding gowns glistening and sparkling in the sunlight
as it pours through the tiny horse shoe covered windows – created by the blacksmith over 100 years ago.

We have carefully selected our beautiful range of wedding dresses from amongst Englands greatest award winning designers. Some we have chosen for their elegance,
some for their simplicity, some just for the way they took our breath away on the runway and all for the way they will photograph on your wedding day.

We only look after one Bride at a time and only by appointment so your experience will be very personal and unique to you.

Our story so far

For over 18 years Julie Davies has been working with Brides.  Initially as a Bridal Consultant in large, renowned boutiques and for the last 14 years as a top class Wedding Photographer with one of the South’s leading Wedding Photographers based in Sussex.

Her eye for detail is matched by her desire to make sure that her Brides live out their dream day looking and feeling like a Princess.  With over 800 live weddings under her belt she has been getting the perfect photograph of the wedding dress, helping with last minute dress glitches on the day, adjusting and tuning the wedding dress for the perfect pose or simply ensuring that her client can move comfortably around her venue.

This experience along with a deep interest in fashion allows Julie to bring the very best experience to her new Bridal clients visiting Barefoot Bridal Boutique in West Sussex.

our cute little boutique

We chose The Old Forge as a location for Barefoot Bridal as we wanted a unique shopping experience for our Brides looking for the perfect wedding dress.  A wedding dress boutique in West Sussex needed to be remote and away from prying eyes.  That meant no passing public peering through the window whilst our Brides enjoyed their dress trials.

The Beautiful old building is listed by English Heritage as an example of a Sussex village forge and dates back to the 19th Century.

The Lucky horse shoes forged by the blacksmith covering one of the windows are said to bring health, wealth and happiness to those that touch them!
