MEET THE TEAM

Co-owners, founders and the faces of Creatiques; The Boys have a wealth of bridal and retail knowledge and are a well respected force within the Bridal Industry. Having dressed Brides for over 26 years, The Boys have been told on more than one occasion that they ‘Know how to dress a woman!’

Rob

Brides adore Rob’s chilled out, and calm personality. He is an absolute genius when it comes to the retail management side of the business, and is rarely phased by anything. Rob is a window dressing extraordinaire, often taking something unsuspecting but creating a masterpiece of a window display, generating “oohs and ahhs” on the other side of the glass. Rob has 30 years of Retail Management experience, and is a firm believer in finger spacing- much to the Creatiques Teams dismay! Rob loves a huge array of music, and is often in charge of the Creatiques playlist; which after a long day of fittings can result in some interesting dance moves…often including veils; very Pans People-esque.

Andrew

Passionate and precise, there isn’t much Andrew doesn’t know about a wedding dress. Starting Creatiques all those years ago in a small workroom in his house, Andrew not only fronts the award winning business and is a bridal hair expert (having an onsite hair stylist is a real asset to our brides, he knows hair and what  would look best on your wedding day CHECK OUT HIS WEBSITE  www.thehairdresssir.co.uk) but is also renowned fashionista within the industry. Andrew will stop at nothing to deliver a second to none service to the Bride’s and this shows in his persona. In his spare time (not that there’s much of it mind) Andrew enjoys cooking up culinary delights, which he has proved rather fabulous at; so much so that in 2013 Andrew reached the semi-finals of ITV’s ‘Food Glorious Food’ as his very glamorous alter-ego The Fabulous Miss G. As Miss G, Andrew has since gone on to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for Hampshire based charities, and Queen Alexander Hospital.

Claire

I have been sewing all my life, making costumes and outfits for myself. I studied sewing at college but didn’t start working in bridal until 2003.  I was lucky to work with designers Stewart Parvin, Stephanie Allin and Sassi Holford. In 2010 I was Manager of Stephanie Allin’s London store and responsible for fitting all her London Brides and red carpet gowns.  In 2018 I moved to Fareham and in 2019 started working with Creatiques. I love my job and working with Creatiques is just fabulous.

Ruby

Hello Brides! My names Ruby! I started working at Creatiques in May 2019 and I have loved every minute of it. I’m currently studying Fashion and Textile Design at Portsmouth University which I LOVE! When I graduate I want to stay within the bridal industry – and hopefully one day design my own collection. What I love most about my job is how everyone involved is so happy! Everybody that comes through the door no matter how nervous always has a smile from ear to ear which is contagious for me. Outside of the shop I spend a lot of time excessively watching Netflix, drinking a lot of tea, always buying new house plants, and I am a real old soul at heart. Looking forward to meeting lots of new brides in the future and sharing their dress journey!
