10 Years of Andrea Hawkes

We are extremely proud to celebrate our 10-year anniversary as Andrea Hawkes.  

From humble beginnings, Andrea’s vision for clean, contemporary, quality natural silk Wedding Dresses with a tailored craft, has evolved into dressing thousands of brides from across the world during our decade as Andrea Hawkes. 

Always retaining our principles from day one; to deliver quality, with a service to match. With honesty, with care, with a normality and with a cup of tea…  

 Weddings and the bridal landscape have changed, along with the world in our decade. We have always adapted and evolved as a team to ensure we continue to offer our principles, despite the challenges as a whole and as individuals. 

Embrace and celebrate the special emotion and experience that your Wedding Day holds; it is looking and feeling your best, we are eternally honoured and grateful to be part of that. 

The future looks exciting. 


“As a young girl I dreamt of having my own business. Selling toys outside my garage at home to the neighbours. I clearly was destined to do something with that energy! 

10 years ago, the drive kicked in, while living in the creative hub of East London.  

I could only dream then that today, Andrea Hawkes would be a ‘brand’.  

I’m extremely proud that we have created a studio which first and foremost employs a team of wonderful creative individuals.  

Together over the years, we have strived to create collections to inspire and empower. Dresses for our Brides that become the most important thing that they will ever wear. I feel forever honoured to be a part of that experience.  

I’m also proud that my husband and I are sole founders and directors of the brand which ensures AH will always have that personal feel. We have always kept our focus on the things that really matter to us, quality and service. Those values have served us well and will take us into the next decade. We will continue to stay grounded and focus on nurturing AH.  

Our sustainability pledge is the same as it has been from day one and we continue to use sustainable materials, produce in house and plant a tree for each bride.

I’d like to take this moment to thank each and every one of our brides who have found their dress with us over the past 10 years, it has truly been an honour to be a part of your special day. We are excited for the future and can’t wait to continue doing what we love most, making our brides feel the absolute best on their wedding day!”
