About

Hi I'm Anwen, the face behind Anwen Bentley Millinery based in Cardiff. I moved to Cardiff from Pembrokeshire back in 2014 and I haven't looked back since. 

I first came across millinery 5 years ago whilst working in a pub/restaurant in Llandaff. One of the morning coffee regulars I discovered used to be a millinery teacher. After giving me pointers and tips and bringing some fabric in one day, I managed to create my first ever fascinator. I created a few for friends and family over the years and at the beginning of 2019 I completed a millinery course to develop my skills. I loved it so much I haven't stopped making them since. 

In 2009 I studied at the Carmarthenshire School of Art, whilst there I also completed a pattern cutting course which enhanced my knowledge on the design process. I absolutely love being creative and am so passionate about designing beautiful headwear for all occasions. 

I work full time as a manager at Laura May Bridal in Cardiff and love being surrounded by beautiful dresses every day. Who wouldn't?! I have a selection of my fascinators stocked at the Pretty Perfect Boutique which is situated in the Morgan Arcade in the centre of Cardiff.
