Just 23, with no retail experience and bang in the middle of a recession, Stephanie Bain from Aberdeen, opened the doors of The Bridal Boutique in Peterculter.

Now 25 years old, Stephanie, who has dyslexia, has secured top designers from around the world and has brides traveling from all over Scotland and abroad for her private appointments.

Voted Outstanding Wedding Supplier in 2012 at the VOWS Awards, Stephanie’s vibrant window front has even encouraged other businesses to open up in the once rundown street. In 2013 she hopes to expand, stocking gowns for curvier brides-to-be. She receives remarkable praise not just from her clients but also from the local residents with her hard work, determination and passion for helping others.
