About Us

Mango Walk was founded by Shirley and her husband Gren, it is a small family run business located in Nottingham.

Mango Walk started off with the simple idea of sourcing beautiful christening and communion gowns that is of the highest quality to suit all budgets. We have since added personalised items and strive to provide outstanding choice, variety and quality to those wishing to celebrate. Our aim is to make your special occasion memorable.

Back in the 60s, as a small child Shirley remembers her grandmother Daisy having a corner shop. She can recall wanting to play with the till and to help serve. On countless occasions while young, customers would ask her if she was going to have a shop when she grew up. Now much older Shirley thinks in the back of her mind she always wanted to be in the service sector. Since leaving school her employment experiences have all been surrounding service, whether in shops, garment manufacturing industries, health and as a monitoring officer in local government. Her past employment experiences have given her the knowledge of specialist fabrics and attention to detail.

Since trading as a First Communion wear specialist, Shirley noticed parents getting increasingly frustrated trying to locate a First Communion and Christening shop where they can find everything needed for their child’s and family very special occasion or event.

We have a cosy showroom where your child can try on either Christening or Communion gowns with all the accessories. Amongst other items these include bonnets, shoes, veils and gloves. In choosing your item we endeavour to make your experience with us comfortable and pleasurable.

Our suppliers are both ground breaking and trend setters. Their commitment to this, is in the beautiful fabrics, embellishments, and designs.

Our gift ware supplier uses ethically sourced products, and use environmentally friendly processes and packaging wherever possible. Recently, by using recycled materials for their packaging supplies, they were able to save 494 trees.
