Ophelia Bridal in Drogheda opened in January 2007. It was the lifelong dream of fashion designer Aoife O Broin. Having specialised in Bridal Wear at the Grafton Academy of Dress Design in Dublin, Aoife went on to work as a designer for the next 13 years. During this time she made bespoke dresses for private clients from her studio in Drogheda. It was always her ambition to open a bridal boutique and this finally came to fruition in 2007 when Ophelia Bridal opened its doors. Initially Aoife worked from her private studio but has since moved to a larger showroom on Laurence`s St in Drogheda. It is stocked with designs of a truly international flavour, Fara Sposa, Novia D`Art and La Sposa from Spain, Essense from Australia, Madeline Gardner from New York sitting alongside Agnes and Lisa Maria as the most recent additions. Each gown is an exquisite example of opulence and design with vintage lace, silk crepe and crushed taffeta abound. The website shows just a selection of the gowns available. Aoife and her staff work on a one to one basis with each bride, helping her choose the right style and colour for that special day.
