We’ve Won Best Occasion Wear in Wales for the Second Year Running!

We are thrilled to announce for the second year running Baroque Boutique has won Best Occasion Wear in Wales and the South East Region at the recent Welsh National Wedding Awards!

The ceremony took place at Brangwyn Hall, Swansea on Sunday 13th November 2016. To mark 100 years since the birth of the world’s number one storyteller, this year was in the theme of Roald Dahl with Willy Wonka’s fizzy lifting drinks on arrival followed by the BFG and Twits 3 course meal.

On collecting the prizes, we dedicated both awards in loving memory of my husband Bryan Challenor. From the moment we decided to setup Baroque Boutique in 2013, Bryan always gave us 100% support and encouragement until the very last day he lost his battle with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

The last 12 months have been extremely difficult to run the business while caring for Bryan and these awards really gives us the encouragement to keep going. We would like to thank our wonderful team of dedicated staff who have been extremely understanding in these difficult circumstances and our amazing customers.

Our awards success and Bryan’s huge fund raising efforts have made it into the South Wales Argus newspaper – see below. To read the article online please click here.
