Client Testimonials

Such friendly and helpful staff! I appreciated their honest opinion and felt that they shared my hope of finding 'the dress' rather than 'a dress'. such a beautiful shop and plenty of dresses to try...I can't wait to wear my beautiful gown down the aisle on my big day.

Thank you Emma for your help... (despite my distracting giggling sisters!)

My mum and I visited in January without realising we needed to book an appointment, but all of the girls were amazing and managed to squeeze me in between appointments.

First we were seen by Emma, she was so lovely and helped me pick out a bunch of different style dresses but had an appointment she had to attend to half way through (completely understandable as I didn't make an appointment) and Stephanie took over. Steph was just as lovely and attentive as Emma and again, helped me pick a bunch of different dresses. They were very open about pricing and made us aware of dresses that were going to be in an upcoming sale as well.

In the end, I think I asked every single girl that worked there which dress I should choose - I feel like I got genuine, honest responses from everyone and I don't regret my choice at all.

Thank you all so much for making the day so enjoyable, especially when I hadn't booked! I couldn't recommend you highly enough.

Had a great morning with Emma! She was very helpful and professional. Believe it or not, the second dress I tried on turned out to be the one!

Thank you for your help Emma and celebratory bubbles too. I cannot wait to have my beautiful dress on again!

Amazing! Emma was fabulous and understood everything I wanted and I found my dream dress. It's such a beautiful shop and everyone is so friendly and helpful.

Emma was just brilliant, very helpful and attentive and she found my perfect dress one I would not have seen if not for her.

Great selection of dresses, would highly recommend a visit. Thank you

Dawn (and all the staff) was so friendly and welcoming. She was great at guiding me to pick out dresses that would suit me and make me feel amazing - so much so that it was a real struggle to pick one dress out of so many beautiful dresses!

Dawn pinned the dress so I could see exactly how it would fit once tailored. There was no pressure to buy on the day and the store even opened early for me a week later so they could fit me in at short notice to make my final decision. I'm so happy with the dress I've chosen and can't wait to collect it this summer. Thank you so much!

Tried on wedding dresses for the very first time today- I was so excited but also a bit nervous! I was lucky enough to have Lorraine throughout my trial and she was amazing and put me so at ease with everything! She also found a dress for me that I absolutely fell in love with. Thank you Lorraine!
