Charlotte   The alchemist and favourite sister who runs our business and keeps all the cogs moving, and the most Wednesday Addams of our bunch. While she has her masters in chemistry and spent part of her career in sustainability research, since she joined Legend full time a bunch of years ago the business has grown in lots of magical ways. She’s also a very talented seamstress and super creative with accessories and can switch from creative to bossy boss and from dreamer of the impossible to ‘brass tacks what needs done now’ in the flutter of a deaths-head moths wing.  As the Gothest soul in our team, she spends her time outside of work at festivals with her high school sweetheart husband, with whom she had a pagan hand-fasting wedding, where of course she wore black!

Rachel B   The other favourite sister, lead designer and technical guru. Graduating from Liverpool John Moore’s in 2002 and immediately setting off in a career in bridal, Rachel has been designing and creating wedding dresses for discerning brides for nearly 20 years.  As the most specialised seamstress Rachel gets to eat all the frogs (you know the saying right?) but her favourite thing is fine detailed work, so all intricate beading projects are saved for Rachel to ‘relax’ with.  Outside of work, Rachel and her husband Paul love nothing more than taking off in their van and waking up with unknown spectacular views…. or helping our folks sculpt their land. And if they can squeeze in a tattoo convention too, well that’s just their best life.

Hollie   Our newest member of the team making sure everything runs smoothly on our busy Saturdays; guiding everyone to the right room and making sure everyone is fully watered and caffeinated (essential for a successful Saturday). She also stops us looking like we’ve been robbed after we’ve ransacked our rails and displays during consultations and fittings!  Outside of Legend Hollie is studying at UCLAN and can often be found propping up Preston’s many bars. or helping out with her mum’s dog walking business.
