Bridal Manor is owned by Anél Viljoen, who is passionate about her family, creative design, good quality textiles, art, fashion and sport. Anél is married to Paul and has three very cute little boys.  

She graduated from the University of Pretoria where she studied B. Consumer Science with specialization in Clothing Management and B.Com Marketing. During her studies she worked part-time at a Boutique, where she developed a passion for Mother of the Bride customers. That was when she decided that she would one day own her own boutique. First, however, she had to gain experience in the competitive fashion industry. Straight after University, she was offered a position at Edcon, the biggest fashion retailer in South Africa, where she gained valuable experience working in quality, marketing and merchandising.
