1. 1988

    It began in 1988 with a collection of bespoke, hand-crafted wedding dresses. Understated and elegant, Ruth’s designs showed off her trademark sense of style, combining a quintessentially English aesthetic with a contemporary freshness.

    Roll on a few years and add four children to the mix: multi-tasking and juggling schedules was fast becoming second nature. Ruth started teaching piano in the evening, designing dresses by day and sewing at night.

    By 2008 those creative juices needed a new outlet. Ruth took on the role of project manager for the multi award-winning interior design firm, Sims-Hilditch. It was the perfect launch pad for Brookman Greene, bringing to the fore her organisational skills, creative eye and attention to detail.

    2012 our first wedding. A glorious celebration of friends, family, love and laughter. A midsummer night’s dream setting to launch a new relationship and a new business.
