Emporella was established in the heart of Leeds and founded by me, Claire Amelia. I’m a designer, dressmaker, and owner of the established bridal shop ‘Bridal Emporium’ in Leeds, specialising in fashion, modern, vintage and bohemian styles. You could say I know a thing or two about weddings! With years of running a small business within the wedding industry, I was eager to use my knowledge and experience to launch Emporella, a one stop shop for weddings. And I'm super excited to finally be here and show the world what we’ve been working on!

In December 2019, we officially expanded the team and two became three. Lucy, our experienced social media and marketing guru joined us and she is the woman bringing you all the latest wedding trends, inspiring social media content, and ultimately helping us to grow Emporella into one of the most recognised brands within the wedding world. 

Emporella is an online marketplace, supplier’s directory, blog and wedding fair calendar. What more could you need when you’ve just got engaged! We are huge supporters of British and independent designers. Our platform gives suppliers the opportunity to grow, conquer and celebrate their brand. Emporella aims to cater to every type of bride from vintage, glam, traditional, boho, or low key. With an extensive list of categories, on-trend themes, and the hottest designers and products around, there’s something to suit every bride and groom. We also strive to make wedding planning and shopping a much more enjoyable and stress-free experience for all (say goodbye to the overwhelming amount of shopping tabs open at once)! 

With plenty more fabulous ideas being worked on behind the scenes, including the Emporella app and a one of a kind wedding planner, our vision for Emporella is to grow it into the biggest wedding marketplace platform in the world.

Bring it on!
