Special messages from our Beautiful brides
Couldn’t wait to share these with you and express one last heartfelt thanks for making my dress experience so special. I never dreamed I’d be in the position of dress shopping alone but Michaela was so wonderful I hardly noticed, and actually enjoyed it! Thank you thank you thank you xxxell
"I thought I must email you straight away to thank you for helping me find my dream dress. I honestly felt like a Disney princess and received so many lovely compliments. Rob had tears in his eyes when I walked up the aisle and our wedding was just magical -I wish I could rewind the clock and do it all again! Michaela, you picked out my dress for me two years ago and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I have loved every minute of coming up to the boutique and am actually quite sad the wedding and lead up is over!! Keziah was just amazing and so wonderful to work with, I can’t thank her enough for all the alterations she did (including having to take the scallop lace hem up twice!) Thank you so much

Now that we are back from Honeymoon, I wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for your attention, professionalism and wonderful service at Clifton Brides. In a year where so many compromises have had to be made, one thing I did not compromise on at my wedding was my dress! I absolutely adored wearing it - it was perfect for me in every single way, and I got so many compliments on it. Thank you for making the whole experience absolutely enjoyable and perfect. Thank you again and again.

“Dear Michaela and Hannah, as I reflect on my wedding day a week ago today I am find myself grinning from ear to ear!
We had the most perfect day, surrounded by everyone we loved including those who couldn’t be there in person so Thank you for the personal touch to my dress to bring mum close .
I felt like a Hollywood movie star on the day and everyone commented on how gorgeous my dress was, something they’d not seen before! By the end of the night it showed true signs of being a fabulous day, a few lipstick and wine stains , reminding me of the fun day we had. Thank you again for everything .
The new Mrs Jenkins
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"
"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 x"
"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,
Hope you’re all doing well!
Just wanted to send a few photos over from the wedding...
It truly was the most magical day and my dress made me feel so confident and happy! It was absolutely perfect!!
So thank you SO much again for helping me choose it and being such a superstar every time I came to the shop. It was a lovely experience every time.
Lots of love to you and your mum!

"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.

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"
