“Empty Box” featured twice on Christmas Day Specials!

Two popular ITV series; Emmerdale and Downton Abbey, chose their Christmas Specials to feature beautiful boxes by the unique British company The Empty Box Company.

The Empty Box Company specialises in handmade beautiful boxes to preserve a wedding dress; the company knew each of the two ITV series’ had filmed with a selection of boxes but were surprised and delighted to see them on the screens, both in Christmas Day Specials!

Emmerdale had jilted bride Priya longingly taking her wedding dress from a beautiful Empty Box Company Wedding Box, and Downton Abbey had a stack of boxes containing the gorgeous outfits that Rose wears for her debutante ball and presentation to the King.

Marketing director Giselle Hulme said “ I was very relieved actually because Downton had bought 29 boxes from us and yet none appeared in the autumn series! Our last chance was the Christmas Special and sure enough, they were piled elegantly, in the hallway, containing all of Rose’s “coming out” dresses!

Emmerdale was due to be screened mid January but Christmas is a time for special things and they brought this one forward. The props department chose one floral Extra Large Box and a more sassy Endsleigh Gold design as a choice for the show designer; but the Emmerdale character, Priya, is definitely a sassier girl, that would go for gold! A perfect place for keeping her wedding dress!

The Empty Box Company has a workshop in Milton Abbot, near Tavistock and one in Surrey and has been making boxes for 26 years. They supply bridal shops across the country to help brides keep their dress properly after the day, plus Wedding Travel Boxes for taking a dress abroad. Giselle concludes “It has been wonderful to see the boxes on TV used in such apt settings.” For colour brochure or for trade details tel: 01306 740193.

I have recently received my order from you, and would just like to thank you all so much for my wedding dress box. It was a surprise to see such a wonderful designed box, which had a lot of storage space. I have searched high and low for a large box and have only been successful with yourself.
Very rarely in this busy world we lead do I feel strongly enough to put “pen to paper” however having taken delivery of my wedding dress travel box this morning I feel compelled to write to you! I must admit that initially, I hesitated about placing an order for what seemed effectively like just an empty box. Well, I stand corrected! The box is absolutely stunning and of amazing quality – I simply had to express my thanks for supplying such a beautiful product. Rest assured it will be displayed with pride on top of my wardrobe.
Wow! What a beautiful box for my wedding dress. It was so sad to pack my dress away, but your box was just perfect. My Mum thought I was ordering just an ordinary plain box! No way! Thank you so much.
I just wanted to send a big thank you for my lovely wedding dress box, which I received last week. I am very impressed by the attention to detail – from the quality beautiful box itself, to the way in which it was packed to ensure it arrived in pristine condition. All for a very reasonable price! My dress fits perfectly inside and the box has pride of place in my wardrobe.
Just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with my Wedding Dress Box, my dress fits perfectly and the design (essence gold) is exactly in keeping with my wedding colour scheme. The dress box is so good, I’ve just ordered a tiara box to match!
