Martin Charles has celebrated his tenth anniversary in Oundle’s West Street, where his stunning window displays of beautiful wedding gowns have delighted many over the past decade.

Since re-opening in July after the fi rst lockdown, however, it became obvious that the wedding industry would not recover for a while yet. Martin is, therefore, adapting to the current circumstances and relaunching his business as a general design studio rather than continuing uniquely as a bridal boutique.

Design and commissions for bridal will remain the core of Martin’s business and he will continue to keep a small range of his creations on display in his studio. Martin will also be offering alteration services to brides who have found their dresses online or elsewhere, as well as to the rest of the bridal party. In addition, he will undertake formal and informal clothing alterations on new and treasured items of clothing well worth keeping, both for women and men.


Opening hours: Tue-Fri 10am to 5pm, Sat 9.30am to 4.30pm.
