"Finding a dress 4 weeks after you give birth and your wedding is in less than 3 months is daunting! I met Michaela after I'd visitied 2 other dress shops and my confidence was low! With Michaela's warmth and patience we found my lovely @wtoowatters dress. It had gorgeous detail on the bodice and then lovely polka dots on the skirt. What made it even better was that at my fitting I casually said "it's just missing pockets" and low and behold the amazing seamstress put pockets in - highly recommended pockets in your wedding dress girls! Michaela thank you. You were so sweet, kind and genuine every time we came in. And thank you for boosting my confidence too at a time when I very badly needed it."

"I am just beaming after my visit to Clifton Brides. I had the loveliest experience with my mum and sister (and baby niece) where I said yes to the dress! It is everything I wanted and is just perfect for my day. I cannot praise Michaela enough for her warmth and experience, guiding me through decisions and leaving me feeling completely confident that I am in safe hands. Michaela went the extra mile by offering to make a dress for my niece to match mine which really means a lot to me and is such a lovely personal touch. 
I felt welcomed from the minute I walked through the door and loved the intimate feel of the boutique. I am really looking forward to the next stage with Clifton Brides in the lead up to my wedding. 
 
Thank you so much Michaela and team. 
Highly recommend."

We shall never forget your professionalism, attention to every detail, friendship and, most importantly for making Laura a most beautiful bride.  
Everyone agreed that she looked stunning in her wonderful dress. 
 
You both really do go that extra mile to ensure your brides are happy and confident on their special days - Laura's wonderful smile as she walked down the aisle with her Dad said it all. 
Hoping your business continues to thrive and that you are both well, 
Love from Laura's mum, Julie xx

My second wedding , and I didnt think I should be wearing another wedding dress. I was very dispondant and dreading the whole experience. However , I left you beaming I had found the perfect dress. 
Covid then scuppered our plans for May 2020, but thanks to your complete flexibility and acomodations , I didnt end up wearing my jeans yesterday. Keziah must have stayed up all night to alter my dress in jyust a few hours. A huge thank you to her too! 
I wish you the very best of luck for the future , and whilst I wont be back for a third dress , I will recommend you and your team to every bride! 
 
Thank you again ,

I bought my wedding dress from Clifton Brides today. Michaela was absolutely wonderful. So so patient with me as I tried on dresses that just didnt win me over , even though i was convinced they would! In the end I didn't go for any of the ones I had thought but one which Michaela picked out. She made me feel totally relaxed. The perfect experience and I would happily recommend Clifton Brides to any bride-to-be. Cant wait to wear my dress in 2021!

I think it is just coming up to a year since mine and my mum's first visit to Clifton Brides- how time has flown! If it wasn't for you, I might never have even tried that dress on. It was so so perfect and I had so many compliments- even my Grandma loved it! Thanks again"

"I first came to the shop for my sisters dress fitting and knew this was the place to come when it was my turn to shop. Michaela was so helpful & patient whilst I tried in countless dresses & the service from my first call to book an appointment to picking up my dress was first class. A fantastic shop with so many dresses, accessories & ideas!"

"I had been to 3 wedding dress shops before I visited Clifton Brides and as soon as I walked in they made me feel special. I love the exclusive feel you get when you visit here, it is not like all the other shops where there are lots of brides trying on dresses at the same time. All the staff were so lovely and made me and my bridal party feel welcoming. The dress selection is amazing and as soon as I put my dress on I knew it was the one."

I really couldn't recommend you enough and know that every Bride to be that enters your shop will end up feeling as happy as me!"

Thank you so much to everyone at Clifton Brides for helping me find the perfect dress for my wedding in June! After lots of unsuccessful shopping trips to other shops I was a bit worried that I wouldn't find the right dress for me, but you made me feel so welcome i'm so glad I found my perfect dress in your lovely shop. You were all so great during the consultations and the fittings, I was so excited everytime I came in and always left with a smile on my face. Thank you for also arranging for the dress to be dry cleaned and boxed so that I can keep it forever. 
Louise xx 
Thank you so much to Hannah and Michaela for making a very nervous bride to be feel comforable , confident and excited ! You were so patient with me and suggested dresses I would never in a million years pick , but worked. Couldnt choose between the 2 favourites , but made the right choice on my second visit just yesterday. Roll on December , despite what happens with Covid!! 
Thank you both again. 
 
Karen H 
After visiting umpteen bridal shops and losing hope, I finally made it to Clifton Brides where you helped me to find my perfect dress. There were no pushy saleswomen and I was made to feel very welcome. You were incredibly helpful and made the whole process stress free and enjoyable - even when a 3 month illness caused me to have my dress taken in again just a few days before the wedding! Thank you for helping to make my day so special x

I had my first dress fitting at Clifton Brides today, and as per usual , the service and experience has been incredible. From my first visit over a year ago now , I only have lovely things to say . Michaela and her team are so professional , yet friendly and make me feel so good each time I visit. The memory Michaela has for all her brides is mind blowing - she remembers names , dresses and locations without hesitation which shows how much passion she has for her business and the work she does. I'm excited to becoming a Mrs in just 6 weeks, but will miss my visits for sure! Thank you so very much . 
Emma Parsons 
 
Such a wonderful experience choosing my wedding dress yesterday. Michaela is an absolute DREAM, and her boutique is gorgeous! Could not recommend more highly for warm, honest and personal service. Looking forward to coming back soon for my fittings and seeing my beautiful dress again. 
Thank you so much. 
 
 
Katie - Wedding October 2020 
Thank you so much to Hannah for helping find my beautiful wedding dress today. I really did not expect to choose a dress like I have but Hannah was so good and suggested dresses I really would not have thought would suit me! 
I cannot wait to wear My Alan hannah dress next year ( and hopefully without a mask!) 
The boutique is simply gogeous , and even though we are in a pandemic , the atmosphere was really chilled and myself and 2 bridesmaids had a fab end to the day with lots more bubbles! 
See you in March 2021 
Ellie xx 
Michaela, I'm sure Beth will be in touch herself again soon, but I’d like to say how fantastic the whole service was today, especially the lovely touch at the end with the bubbly and our lovely gift to take away. 
Can’t wait to come back for her fitting! Thankyou so very much

I cant say Thank you enough for all Michaela's help in the preparation to my wedding .  
She went above and beyound for me , and kept me calm on my many bride zilla moments!  
Despite Covid , we had the most beautiful, intimate wedding in Bath and felt just wonderful in my dress. It fitted amazingly (thank you Keziah) and my accessories were more than perfect. 
Thank you again. 
Much love Tracy Troupe

Michaela & Brenda have a simply wonderful selection of dresses of different styles and price points.I tried a bit of everything , and was guided along the way with their expert help which was great. All of the dresses are in pristine condition and the boutique has recently been refurbished. It's so lovely , adding to the whole experience and atmosphere. Thank you both for making it such a lovely experience. I can't wait to come back in a few months . 
 
Millie - Wedding July 2021 
I was very fortunate to be asked by my niece to go wedding dress shopping with her , we went to some nice places and then we went to Clifton Brides .Well what can I say ? Just stunning. The service was excellent nothing was too much trouble . We made numerous visits which we all looked forward to . On 27th May my niece Laura was married the dress was absolutely stunning it fitted so perfectly and was so her . Was such a fantastic day my only disappointment is that we no longer need to visit Clifton Brides . I may even after 29 years of marriage consider renewing my vows just to have the Clifton Brides experience . Thank you xxx

Thank you for all your help Michaela! 
I originally came in to try on a paricular dress but after speaking to you about what I was looking for you showed me "My" dress! I didnt want to try another on. You knew instantly what would suit me and what I was looking for . I fell in love the minute I put the dress on. You made me feel like I was the most important , beautiful person at every visit. Thank you so very much . xxx

Dear Michaela, Brenda and team at Clifton Brides...Wanted to say Thank you SO much. .. 
I was dreading shopping for my dress and put it off so many times.( I had my shoes a year before the wedding and pretty much everything else planned!). 
On my first visit to Clifton Brides , mum and I were made to feel so welcome and at ease. It was only 5 weeks since I'd had my baby son , so I wasnt feeling terribly body confident to say the least! I was certain I wanted a floaty dress but having tried these on , they really werent right for me. Michaela suggested I tried a full lace one on , and though I dismissed it on the rail, it was perfect, and I knew it was "The One". It is so true you know when its the one.. 
After just a couple of fittings by their amazing seamstress Keziah, it fitted perfectly. I felt like a princess all day and honestly didnt want to take it off . 
Choosing Clifton Brides was the best decision I could have ever made. From start to finish , the whole process was perfect.I will happily recomend you to everyone. 
Thank you again xx

Married September 2019 Clevedon. 
Years after going past their beautiful shop and admiring their windows, I wanted to make Clifton Brides my first appointment. Michaela is lovely, honest (and funny!) and really put me at ease. I chose a few dresses that were nice , but not "IT". Michaela suggested one that was actually the opposite of what I saw myself in , but it was perfect. I wanted to sleep on it and go back with my mum and the second time I tried it on it was 110% THE ONE. I only had a few months before my wedding , but this was not a problem. Michaela called the designer while I was there and my dress was delivered in a matter of weeks without any stress. I felt amazing in it and my fiance was blown away! I really didnt want to take it off.I couldnt have hoped for a better experience. (I confess I did go to another 2 shops before going back to Clifton Brides , but the service was no way as good and far too pushy for me. Michaela clearly loves what she does and I am so glad i chose my dress there.)

What a wonderful experience at Clifton Brides! 
I hate shopping but you made me enjoy it!! 
They were so helpful and encouraging from the very start & made me feel so comfortable. 
My dress is absolutely beautiful & I'm so pleased that they can do the (minimal) alterations as well. 
Thanks so much

Michaela couldn't have been more accommodating and lovely when we visited 2 years apart for both my daughters wedding dresses. 
The atmosphere in the shop is of calm , yet still has a lovely buzz ! Beautiful collection of dresses and Im so pleased we found 2 dream dresses. 
She was kind enough to also alter bridesmaids dresses bought elsewhere and always full of enthusiasm and excitement for both weddings . 
Thank you so much for making our experience and memories so great , and keep doing what you do so well !!!! 
I have two very happy , beautiful girls !! 
Kindest regards

Clifton Brides was only the second bridal boutique I tried, but I knew the moment I walked in and saw the dresses that it was a cut above the rest. The gowns in there are just gorgeous, elegant and of very high quality. The only trouble is there were so many beautiful ones, it was hard to decide! 
Michaela and her team were fantastic in making sure the dress fitted perfectly. Having someone so caring and knowledgeable with incredible attention to detail just made me feel fantastic! I felt very lucky to be in such good hands. I could not have asked for more and felt a million dollars on the day! Thank you so much Clifton Brides!

Hi Michaela, 
 
What a wonderful day! I am so, SO excited that I’ve found my dress, and so happy that it was in your boutique rather than any of the others I’ve visited! Thank you for making the start of the journey so wonderful, and I can’t wait to go through the rest with you and your team too. x x 
Samantha Money 
Clifton Brides was the very first shop that I went to, where I found the dress of my dreams. I cannot recommend them enough. Michaela is so lovely and knew exactly what I was looking for, so much so the very FIRST dress she picked out happened to be the one! Despite all the COVID restrictions it was still such an amazing day, and I totally forgot all about it as she made me feel so comfortable. The shop is just as beautiful as the dresses and I can't wait to go back next year when my dress arrives for my fitting! Thank you x

Hannah and Michaela were such wonderful hosts and made my dress shopping experience so amazing. They have fab safety measures in place during this weird time and were so professional but super friendly and helpful during my appointment. Hannah knew what I wanted better than I did and found me the perfect dress on my first appointment, which just so happened to be available as a sample so I bought it there and then! I was expecting the process of choosing a dress to be so difficult but Hannah made it so easy and comfortable and I’m just amazed that I came away with my dress so soon. Could not recommend this boutique enough, I wish the process lasted longer so I could spend more time with the lovely team!!

I had such a wonderful experience finding my dress at Clifton Brides. It was the first shop I tried and I am so glad that I wont be needing to go anywhere else. Michaela was fantastic and so so kind and helpful. She picked out an absolutely gorgeous selection of dresses and I ended up going for the first dress she picked. She's amazing! Wonderful experience all round and I would recommend to anyone.

I found my dream dress last Saturday - all with the help of Michaela who was absolutely fantastic. (I’d been to 2 shops before this with no success) but the service and dress selection was second to non and the approach was friendly honest and lots of fun. The shop is beautiful and don’t be put off my it’s location. What I mean is, I went with the expectation that all the dresses were going to be very expensive as it was Clifton but this wasn’t the case - they have a beautiful selection of well priced dresses. Go see for yourself- you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Michaela! Xx

We had a wonderful time in Clifton Brides with Micheala today. She is really attentive, listened to what I wanted and had a beautiful range of dresses to meet my spec. It is almost a shame that she helped me find THE dress so quickly, because we would to have the experience all over again! It was a lovely surprise to be given a glass of fizz to celebrate once I had found the one. The service here really exceeded my expectation. Thank you!

I'm in awe of Michaela and the team at Clifton Brides. From start to finish the service was superb and nothing was EVER too much trouble. From finding the dress in August, a cheeky second visit in January to show my mum the dress to the final tweaks and collection before the big day , I was welcomed with genuine warmth and interest and always a smile. I'm so sad it's all over. Why would you ever go anywhere else. The boutique is stunningly elegant and offers fantastic choice although my dress was the first one I tried on! Thank you so very much to Michaela and team...you made me feel so special.
