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, they know honesty, integrity and family values are incorporated in all the distinctive wedding dresses they produce.
Starting out with Sally as the designer and factory manager and her husband Mike as Sales Director Romantica set up with the assistance of 20 machinists in a small factory in the heart of the Devon countryside.
Romantica quickly expanded their brand over the coming years as the designs evolved, whilst keeping their core values central in all areas.
Twenty years ago Romantica moved to a larger premises, but still operate in the Devon countryside and 3 more members of the family have joined the business and continue to drive the Romantica legacy forward.
