Special messages from our Beautiful brides
"Thank you so much for all your help in getting my dress ready ( all very last minute!) for my wedding day August 29th. Matt and I had the most perfect day, and didn't let the restrictions spoil it!"
"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 still can't stop falling in love with my beautiful dress!!! The beauty not only comes from finding the dress that is the one but the wonderful people you meet along the way!! I can not thank Michaela and Clifton Brides enough for making the entire experience so perfect! From the moment I said yes through to the final collection they were just amazing and made every visit an absolute delight!! I will miss you. THANK YOU!!! xx"
"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.
"To the Clifton Bride Team,

Lots of love to you and your mum!

I just wanted to send some pictures through from our Wedding back in August. We had the most amazing day, the weather was just gorgeous.
Thank you so much for all the help I received in your shop. You and the girls are just incredible and I’ve received so many lovely comments about my dress and veil, I just wish we could do it all over again!
I’ve attached some photos for you, thank you again.

"Hello Michaela and Brenda
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"

"Dear Michaela and the team at Clifton Brides,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you. I loved my dress and lots of guests had said they had never seen a dress like it and absolutely loved it. I felt amazing - thank you so much for everything. I loved every minute of the process of choosing my dress."
"Dear Clifton Brides,
Thank you so much for all your help to get my Alan Hannah dress at such short notice, it meant so much to me to wear the dress I picked with my mum and sister on my wedding day.
Your bridal shop and experience was amazing, thank you again for everything.
Lots of Love,

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 just wanted to email to say thank you so much for all your help finding me my perfect wedding dress and making sure it fitted me beautifully! You did a brilliant job and I totally loved my dress - wish I had an excuse to wear it again!!
Here are a couple of photos of us - we had an amazing day!"
"I just wanted to share a few photo's with you from my wedding day and say a huge thank you for all your help leading up the day. The prospect of having to find "The dress" was utterly terrifying but once my mum and I found you, I can honestly say you made the experience a pleasure.
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 Michaela, you made my dress shopping experience so lovely! I think I may have found "the dress" I cannot wait until September!! I would recommend Clifton Brides to everyone, what a lovely shop! Thank you again! XxX"
I had the most wonderful experience at Clifton Brides and actually found MY dress! From the moment we walked in Michaela made us feel welcome. She listened to my ideas and found lots of dresses (out of her surprisingly large stock!) that I loved - they were all SO beautiful! The boutique itself is also gorgeous with plush carpets and lots of good mirrors and lighting and Michaela was really helpful. She was kind and patient while I tried them all on, offered opinions and didn't put me under any pressure, which was lovely. As photos arent allowed , I was able to video call my parents in Germany, who sadly couldn't come with me. I'm so pleased that I found my dream dress at such a lovely shop. Thank you, Clifton Brides!
I had such a great experience at Clifton Brides. From the moment you enter, you feel welcomed and at ease. The dresses themselves are just beautiful and there is a real range of styles. What made the experience, however, was Michaela, who was so attentive and listened carefully to the styles I was interested in, suggested a number of dresses to try on, and gently steered me towards the perfect dress. Despite Covid restrictions, my mother, sister and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The glass of fizz and the present at the end of the appointment was also very special.
We had a really special time at Clifton Brides. Despite Covid restrictions, Michaela made me, my mum and my best friend feel really comfortable and relaxed throughout the appointment. Having found my dream dress, it was a lovely touch celebrating with a bottle of bubbly in the shop. I also received a lovely gift bag (I won’t disclose the treats as to not spoil the surprise for future brides)! Michaela made some great suggestions to make my dream dress unique and even more beautiful and I cannot wait until I get to try it on again! Thank you Michaela, Amelia Jones
This is such a great place to visit to find your wedding dress. They have an amazing range of beautiful and tasteful dresses that are all kept within a sensible price bracket. I don't think anyone could visit here and not find something they loved! The best thing about it though is Michaela the owner. She really listened to me and took time, keeping pulling out so many beautiful dresses, until we found one that was perfect for me. I was really impressed by how she was able to suggest little adjustments and changes that could be made to the dresses as we went along - to allow them be customised to exactly how I wanted. After my visit she was really helpful as well - answering promptly to any follow up questions that I had. I really highly recommend Clifton Brides!
Thank you so much for helping me find my wonderful dress and for altering it ready for me to take to Belgium.
We went ahead with our wedding On New Years Eve , and it was perfect! I am so happy with my dress!
Love Sara Mostmans
A beautiful shop with so many choices of dresses. I came here with my mum and my sister, the first place to shop for the dream dress. I ended up leaving with a dress ordered as they had the most beautiful collection of Eliza Jane Howell dresses, it didn't take me long to find the beautiful Zenith dress!
I was notified straight away when my dress arrived and had another opportunity to try it on before fittings. At this point I selected one of the beautiful veils they stock. Michaela was with me for all of the fitting appointments, which took place around the coronavirus lockdowns. The change of wedding date, due to venue cancellations, did not phase Michaela or Keziah the seamstress - even though we brought the wedding forward! The dress was expertly fitted, and they helped me to decide how I wanted my sleeves which were an addition to the dress. When I spoke about the nightmare I'd had with the bridesmaid dresses I'd bought elsewhere they offered to help out with the much needed alterations, I cannot thank them enough!! This made our day even more special! This is the shop to go for a no-pressure, completely comfortable appointment, with a friendly service and an absolute gem of a team of staff. Here's to Clifton Brides, in what has been an incredibly difficult year for the wedding industry. Thank you Michaela, Brenda and Keziah!
My mum and I had a lovely experience at Clifton Brides. We had actually intended to just be having an initial look but ended up finding the one! The selection of dresses was stunning and Michaela was super helpful throughout. I can't wait to wear my gorgeous dress on our big day :)!
Thank you , Sarah Hestler
I just wanted to leave a review given the change in circumstances since I chose my dress in Jan (i.e. pre Covid) and going back for first try on since my dress has arrived (post Covid). Michaela was so accommodating to try and fit me in so I could try my dress as soon as it arrived, despite how busy she is and it still being a while until I need to actually have it fitted. They are managing social distancing/regs very sensibly and I love their customised masks! It didn't take away from the experience at all which I could imagine new brides might be concerned about. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Being so ‘picky’ I always presumed I would never find ‘the one’. I settled on a dress but sadly my wedding was cancelled due to the pandemic. This gave me more time to try again and I was fortunate enough to find Clifton Brides. Despite the restrictions Michaela was so welcoming and put me and my mum at ease straight away. She very quickly picked up on my preferences and helped me find the dress that I had been waiting for. Michaela gave us her undivided attention throughout the appointment and we both had the loveliest morning. Thank you Michaela- I’m looking forward to coming back for my fitting!
I was 6 months pregnant when Boris cancelled weddings two days before ours was supposed to take place so I quickly returned my maternity dress!
Round 2 was 4 months after giving birth to my daughter and I was not happy with my post pregnancy body.I had left it till the very last minute when I called Clifton Brides to make an appointment. Hannah was amazing in squezing me in early on a Saturday morning and made me feel very relaxed and gave me confidence to try what I wanted and helping me throughout. Even though time was tight I didnt feel under any pressure , and my fabulous dress was made and shipped from Canada in just 8 weeks. Michaela took all my stress away and not once was I concerned I wouldn't have it in time. Michaela really does know her stuff and as soon as I put my own dress on she knew exactly what needed to be done in terms of alterations. Keziah worked to a ridiculous time line in altering it that very same day so I didnt have to travel again to collect. I truly felt like a pricess in my dress and didnt want to take it off and leave the lovely boutique! I'm so pleased I was convinced to go to Clifton Brides and it was the only place I needed to visit.
Thank you all, Love Stacey Turner x
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
Well we received our Pictures On Christmas Eve,The Perfect Christmas present, which allowed me to relive the absolute beauty of my dress! Thank you so so much again for all your help and calmness during what was an incredibly stressful time ( not sure if I told you , but we had to bring forward our wedding 24 hours at the last minute!)
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas ,
I can't say Thank you enough Michaela for all your help in the preparation of my wedding .
You went above and beyond for me , and kept me calm on my many planning wobbles !
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

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
