Romantica is a family owned and run British business since our inception/creation over 30 years ago. Through the eyes and drive of talented designer Sally Waddington, we know honesty, integrity and family values are incorporated in all the distinctive wedding dresses we produce.
Starting out with Sally as the designer and factory manager and her husband Mike as Sales Director they set up with the assistance of 20 machinists in a small factory in the heart of the Devon countryside. They quickly expanded the brand over the coming years as the designs evolved, whilst keeping the core values central in all areas. Twenty years ago they moved to a larger premises, but still operated in the Devon countryside and 3 more members of the family have joined the business and continue to drive the legacy forward.
In 2001, with Romantica bursting at the seams, they had a purpose built extension which was opened by Princess Anne. Her Royal Highness commented on the fact that Romantica had evolved into one of the largest wedding dress companies in Europe, yet had still been able to retain its family owned and run status.

Headed still by Sally, she is now joined by her two sons who are at the heart of day to day opetations of the business. A true family run business just like Scarlet Poppy
