Our brides call us the Friendliest Bridal Shop in Southampton. We hope to always live up to that accolade.
This year we celebrate our 25th Birthday. It seems only yesterday we ordered our first collection and Josephine's was born.
When trying to think of a great name for our new venture, we thought of paying tribute, to a wonderful woman who had passed away earlier that year, Pat’s mother, Josephine.
During the past 25 years, we have served thousands of beautiful brides, as they prepared for the most important day of their lives. We have experienced tears, laughter, stress and joy in their planning, and we now count as one of the longest continuously owned bridal shops in Hampshire.
Pat is the rock and strength, the irreplaceable backbone of Josephine’s. She has a firmly held belief that no bride should leave Josephine's less than 100% delighted with her dress and the service. Unfortunately, Pat, no longer has a daily presence in the shop but her high values still remain in full effect.
Pat's daughter, Andrea is the day to day face of the family shop. She is usually seen arranging gowns, tiaras and veils as she helps brides find that elusive "Perfect dress", while ensuring they enjoy their experience at Josephine’s. She is also the first point of contact for all queries or questions you may have, Now that you have met us virtually, we’d love to meet you and welcome you to Josephine’s to choose your dream bridal gown.
