Meet the Team



Lindsay has always been quietly creative and at the age of 18 she went to University and completed a degree in Music & Dance. After graduating Lindsay took some time out to travel the world and had the most wonderful experiences. On returning home she began working in retail and customer service and for a short time worked in the travel industry before leaving to have a family. Three babies later and several years of being a stay-at-home mum led Lindsay to getting a part time job in a local bridal store.

She had always had a passion for bridal fashion and used to spend hours designing dresses as a child. This job was a dream come true & Lindsay felt she had finally found her calling. She absolutely loved meeting the brides and helping them find the perfect dress for their one special day. After 4 years invaluable experience learning the ins and outs of the industry and the unfortunate closure of the store, Lindsay and her mum Gill decided to go into business together and Ivory Promise was born.

Lindsay’s passion for the industry and helping brides has only elevated over time. She is extremely proud of what they have achieved so far and will continue to strive to offer brides-to-be the very best of what the bridal market has to offer.

Lindsay is happily married to husband Craig and has 3 beautiful children. Aside from her love of all things bridal she still absolutely loves to travel.



Gill started her early career as a hairdresser before going on to work in retail & customer service. At the age of 40 and after having a family, she decided to go back to University and completed a degree in English Literature followed by a PGCE. Gill went on to have a very successful teaching career and headed the teacher training scheme for charitable trust Continyou for many years. After early retirement Gill began working part time at the local bridal store where her daughter Lindsay worked and the rest, as they say, is history.

Gill celebrates her 50th wedding anniversary with husband James this year. She still has a passion for literature and also loves to travel – Gill is most definitely the sun-worshipper of the team! She loves spending her free time with friends and family & especially loves to spoil her 3 beautiful grandchildren.


Bridal Consultant

I first met Lindsay & Gill 7 years ago when I started working part-time in a local bridal shop and we have been a great team ever since. Previous to that I spent 28 years working on the telephones for the Greater Manchester Fire Service, so wedding dresses were a complete change for me. I love helping our brides find the right style and shape of dress that they feel beautiful and confident in. I consider myself to be very lucky to work in such a lovely environment doing something that gives me great satisfaction.

My other loves are my family and friends. My husband Col & I have been happily married for 20 years and we live with our gorgeous Norfolk Terrier Alfie. We love to travel and my personal favourites have been the Maldives, Mexico and Skiathos. We also love to holiday in the UK with friends and fur babies alike.



Lydia was with us from the very start of Ivory Promise and we were fortunate to have her with us as a Bridal Consultant for 3 wonderful years. Lydia has always modelled for us both in the store and on location at photo shoots. She also attended all the buying trips with us and her input was invaluable. We supported Lydia throughout her incredible journey of being Miss. Blackpool 2018.

In 2019 Lydia graduated from Edge Hill University with a first class degree in Business Studies and is now on the graduate management scheme for a major hotel chain. This unfortunately means that Lydia is no longer with us on a regular basis however she is still very much a huge part of the Ivory Promise family. Lydia still models for us when she is available and continues to attend events.
