Boho Bride Ltd
Region: West Midlands
Programme: Enterprise Finance Guarantee
Boho Bride is a bridal boutique based near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.
Founded in 2014, the business showcases gowns and accessories from British designers. It offers a bespoke service for its collections that cater for all kinds of looks, from simple elegance to vintage.
Initially receiving funding from the British Business Bank’s Start Up Loans scheme back in 2015, Boho Bride needed a second round of finance to move to larger premises. After being made aware of the Enterprise Finance Guarantee (EFG) Scheme by accredited lender Coventry and Warwickshire Reinvestment Trust (CWRT), the company was able to secure the funding it needed in early 2019.
Since receiving its funds, Boho Bride underwent expansion, encompassing a new luxury bridal suite that enabled it to increase its sales and hire and train an extra member of staff.
Director Lynette Turner said, “Without the finance secured by EFG, I wouldn’t have been able to expand the business. It means a huge amount to be able to grow the business I love and to help even more brides find their dream wedding gown.”
