PODCAST S1E1: Andrea Hawkes

Andrea Hawkes is a British bridal designer based in London, who is renowned for creating contemporary, sustainable, minimalist wedding dresses for modern brides. 

Andrea Hawkes Bridal is stocked at multiple British and European bridal boutiques. As well as her gowns, Andrea has also created a collection of wedding veils and luxury sustainable pyjamas and nightwear.

This conversation is with designer Andrea and her husband Dan, her business co-founder. Andrea talks about how she found herself designing wedding dresses and her career trajectory. She discusses her commitment to sustainability in business, balancing work and parenthood and shares details of her experience receiving devastating health news during the covid.

I simply adore working with this wonderful, family-run business and aligning with their strong ethical values.

A Note on Sound Quality

Please be kind, this is the first Podcast we recorded and there are one or two patches of impaired sound, as my guests were sharing a laptop with no mic’s and somewhat unreliable wifi. This doesn’t detract from the ability to enjoy this episode fully.
