About Us

Scarlet Poppy was established in 1994 and has proudly been serving beautiful brides to be ever since.  Scarlet Poppy has built its reputation on honest advice, quality bridal gowns and exceptional customer service.  Over the years Scarlet Poppy has offered brides to be with a vast array of elegant and sophisticated wedding dresses from leading designers but in addition has afforded brides with the unique opportunity to design their own bespoke gowns, retaining the services of our talented dressmaker and seamstress.  

At Scarlet Poppy we believe that your wedding starts as soon as you step through our door! We are a small dedicated team who are committed to our brides and to Scarlet Poppy’s flawless reputation.  We ensure that the service, atmosphere and, of course, the gown itself exceeds all your expectations. We will be with you every step of the way in the build up to your wedding, on hand to reassure with help and advice.

In 2015, after lovingly dedicating 17 years to Scarlet Poppy’s brides, Jo Anderson handed over the reins to new owners, Hannah and Dave Spink.  Although having backgrounds in the legal and financial sectors, in 2008 Hannah and Dave established Dave Spink Photography which, following its rapid expansion, now specialises in wedding photography, videography, photo booths, marry-okes and giant letter hire.  The last 7 years have provided Hannah and Dave with a sound understanding of the wedding industry and the needs of brides and grooms.  Dave himself has been shortlisted for various national wedding industry awards and in 2015 was a finalist for ‘Videographer of the Year’.  For Hannah and Dave it seemed a natural progression to move into bridal wear to and, being a Pudsey girl, Hannah couldn’t be prouder to be the new face behind Scarlet Poppy.
