Chantal founded Brides do Good in 2016, in order to harnass the power of the wedding industry for good, creating a brand that offers women the opportunity to buy their dream designer wedding dress at a price they can afford whilst doing good at the same time. For Chantal, Brides do Good is about bringing women together from all over the world to empower young girls and free them from forced marriage.
