Kind words from happy brides

  • Thank you so much for arranging the most beautiful wedding dress for me - I absolutely love it! Such a shame I only get to wear the dress once! Thanks also to the staff at the shop for their fantastic service. As requested, I've enclosed a photo of me in my 'frock' for your shop's photograph wall. Many thanks again to all of you for everything, I will be recommending you to all of my friends.

  • You were highly recommended to me and I will highly recommend you to others. The service that you guys provide is outstanding, you are so friendly and treated me as if I was the only bride in the world. I know I have said thanks before but now I have had my big day I wanted you to know that you helped me feel a million dollars on the wedding day.

  • To the team at the Colchester Wedding Shop. I really didn't know where to begin with choosing a dress, but you picked out eight dresses for me and by number six we had found 'the one'. I loved my Suzanne Neville dress, it was a joy to wear and I didn't want the day to end!

  • Each of you were just amazing! Truly you were! And helping me to find a new dress after everything that happened was just wonderful. I really was uncertain at one point but you helped me through it and found the dress for me...

  • I would just like to thank you so much for being so wonderful and helpful with the dress purchase, I have now tried it on and it's amazing! I very much look forward to wearing it on Easter Monday for my daughter's wedding. Thank you once again for being understanding and so nice, I am very grateful to you both!

  • I just want to say thank you to all the wonderful ladies at the Wedding Shop who helped me choose my dress. I had a fabulous experience with each and every one of you, with every visit my mind was put at ease and your advice is second to none! I had the most amazing day marrying Joe at Woodhall Manor, Woodbridge on the 4th September and had so many lovely comments about my dress. If I could, I'd wear it everyday! I've attached a few photos for you all. Thank you once again, a very happy bride.

  • I wanted to write and thank you for the most perfect job you did on my fabulous Jenny Packham wedding dress. It was so wonderful to wear and everyone commented on how beautiful it looked. We had the most perfect wedding day in St Lucia - I just wish I could repeat it again and again!!! I have attached a couple of images (out of 1000's!!!!) from our big day.....let me know what you think? Thanks again for being so patient, attentive and for the superb alterations which made my dress so perfect for me :-)

  • Hi ladies! Just found you through Facebook as wanted to send you my thanks and some pics and a couple of ladies asked during my visits! I have to say I wasn't convinced when Josie suggested I try on the dress as completely wasn't what I expected but I loved it, my mum and Nana loved it and more importantly my daughter loved it (now that is a compliment if you know her lol) so thank you to all the staff you helped me and assured me when I was having my breakdowns. I absolutely adore my dress and so did all my guests I'm just gutted I'm not ever going to wear it again (even though my husbands reckons its OK to wear around the house!) Love Kerry and Josh x.
