Hi Michaela 
I hope you are well and that you've had a great summer ? 
I wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for all your help and support in me finding my dream dress, as well as the advice you gave my Mum in the lead up to my wedding. From the moment I entered Clifton Brides I was made to feel at ease, and you made the whole experience so memorable and special. Me living overseas and getting married in the UK meant some pressure on timings and the extra mile you went to to ensure I was kept updated and that everything was delivered on time was much appreciated!! Nathaniel and I had our special day on Saturday 5th August and I loved every second of wearing my dress - here's some pics.

and I felt so incredible all day in my dress. 
Hi Michaela and team

My appointment at Clifton Brides was everything I hoped for and more! The polar opposite to my first wedding dress experience at a different company, and I am so grateful to Michaela for not just finding me the most stunning dress for my wedding day, but for making my experience one to remember,  
for all the right reasons! 
Michaela made me and my family feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. She listened to my ideas and helped talk me through different styles and options. I felt so relaxed and loved every moment. 
The boutique is also so beautiful inside –  
you’ll 100% come away feeling pampered and like a princess! 
Bella B Sommers 
Thank you so much to Michaela for fitting us in  
last minute and being so patient with me!  
I had only 4 months before my wedding and  
unike 2 other boutiques who told me I had left  
it far too late ( it wasnt planned) not only  
found me my amazing dress but ordered  
with 2 changes and still in time for my specal day .  
Definitely go here! 
Phoebe Hatch 
Just wanted to share the wonderful experience I had at Clifton Brides with buying my wedding dress. 
I was very worried to shop for dresses as I have a  
breast prosthetic and I am not the worlds skinniest bride.  
This was never a problem here as Michaela made me feel extrememly comfortable and helped guide me towards  
what ended up being my dream dress  
(which was UNDER my budget!).  
I can not recommend this shop enough. Thank you xx 
Nicky Hewitt 
Dear Michaela and team. 
What can I say?  
From the moment I stepped into your shop and met Zoe and the Eliza Jane Howell collection, I knew that we were going to be the perfect fit for one another.  
Yours was the first shop I visited having wanted to see if a 20s style dress was going to work for me having been an admirer of the design and fashion of that era my whole life.  
Sibella was the fifth dress I tried on and it made me cry instantly. I had heard that such a thing happened but I didn't believe it, certainly that it could happen to me. 
I am so glad to have ordered her with your help and I felt nothing short of the vision I had always dreamt of becoming on Monday at our ceremony at Crowcombe Court.  
I felt the happiest and most confident I have ever felt on Monday and everyone was bowled over.. 
With everlasting gratitude for making Monday my absolute dream come true. 
Susan Fair 
Thank you so much Michaela for the exceptional Clifton Brides experience. You really made me feel reaxed and I loved wearing my dress on the day, so much so I wore it a second time the next day!

This lovely shop has great dresses, and Michaela was kind and understanding in helping  
me find my wedding dress. She made my friends and family feel very welcome,  
quite a different experience than other shops I went to.  
Highly recommended! 
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 .

Thank you so much Zoe for helping me feel so calm and comfortable at my appointment . You were my 3rd shop and I'm so glad I came to you! I was anxious about being it all being a bit too posh as youre in Clifton , but the dress Ive chosen is less than I saw in other shops!! 
Thank you again , I cant wait to wear her in February, Louise S xxx 
Thank you to Zoe who made my dress shopping experience perfect. As soon as I arrived , I knew i'd found the shop I wanted to buy my dress from .

Thank you , I totally LOVE my dress !!  
See you in January , Bethany xx 
"Hi Michaela, 
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping me find the most perfect dress for my wedding back in November.  
Clifton Brides was the first shop I visited and after not liking the many dresses I chose to try on you picked out the one and I instantly loved it!  
Despite looking in many other shops my heart came back to the first dress you found for me. From the moment I walked into Clifton brides you made me feel at ease.  
You were always there throughout the whole process -from the postponed wedding, my many queries and my last minute decision to wear a stole  
(2 weeks before the date and you magically ordered several in for me to try on the day before!).  
I cannot thank you enough for all the effort you went to. I loved my dress and had so many compliments on the day. I simply felt so beautiful and elegant on the day. 
Thank you so much once again. 
Best wishes,

"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!" 
Grace Fox 
"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." 
Sian Byrne 
Thank you Michaela for helping me find my amazing dress,I had the best day ever. So many people commented on it and asked where I got it from! 
Thank you again ,  
"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." 
Thank you Michaela for all your help wit my dress. I felt so beautiful in it all day ! Thank you and Keziah for all the alterations to make it fir so nicely after Covid (and the arrival of our son!)

Really friendly, lovely and helpful when I was choosing my dress and then supportive and reassuring when I was having to reschedule due to covid. 
Keziah was amazing when arranging and rearranging dress fittings due to covid and lockdown too. 
Such a lush team! So happy I found my dress at Clifton Brides ❤️ 
Thank you for my wonderful experience with you . I loved my dress so muchand it was perfect for our chateau wedding in France ,

Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect dress. Nothing was too much trouble and you were all so kind and reassuring throughout the whole experience. 
Thank you so much you are amazing." 
Jo Sheridan 
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! 
One word ... WOW!! 
Wow to dresses, Wow to service, Wow to shop . 
Thankyou so much to Hannah for helping me find my dream gown, I can not wait for my very own to come into store and enjoy all the experiences to come, like gown arriving and fittings. If you want that special experience I really couldn’t recommend Clifton Brides enough. xxx 
Holly Crampton - May 2022 
"Michaela is so welcoming and helpful. After trying on several dresses I was so sure I’d love, I ended up not being so keen. Michaela picked out a dress for me that I didn’t think I liked and it ended up being the one! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Michaela."

Hi Michaela, 
I hope you are well? 
I just want to say thank you so much for helping me find the most amazing dress! I had so many compliments on the dress throughout the day. 
Thank you for being so helpful throughout the process. You kept me calm and comfortable and was so patient. I'm pretty sure in changed in and out of my dress a million times before I made my decision! I could not recommend you enough. 
Thank you again , Phung 
"Fantastic service. I was made to feel so welcome and the dresses were stunning! Absolutely love my dress.

"My mum and I had a really lovely time with Michaela at Clifton Brides. We had quite a stressful journey to get to Clifton, but we were at ease the moment we stepped in. The boutique is full of so many beautiful dresses, it was difficult to narrow them down. Michaela was so knowledgeable and explained the various ways the dresses could be altered to be absolutely perfect!"

Hi Michaela 
Thank you for making my appointment such a wonderful experience! Really excited to see my dress when it's mine  
and changes made. Love it :) 
Lucy Sutton 
I am utterly blown away by how amazing my experience has been with Michaela at Clifton Brides. From our initial emails of discussing the dresses I wanted to try from the Lillian West range, to Michaela reserving the sample she had suggested and I really wanted to try on. At the appointment I felt at ease and comfortable, having had two previous negative experiences in other bridal salons, Michaela was so welcoming and extremely helpful. Listened to what I wanted and didn’t want. Chose a few dresses to try on as well as the reserved dress. I ended up choosing the reserved sample as it was perfect, the best dress that I felt suited me down to the core. I also really appreciated Michaela suggesting additions to the dress that the in-house seamstresses are going to make, such as flutter sleeves that I wanted, as well as an organza cover up for the top as I’m getting married in January. I literally could go on and on about how amazing the overall experience was. Fantastic service which was friendly and personable and I got the dress of my dreams. If you are looking for a beautiful wedding dress and you want friendly, warm, welcoming and helpful service, you have to go to Clifton Brides. I’m one happy bride to be!! 
Angharad Conway 
I wanted to get in touch to say a HUGE thank you to you and the team at Clifton brides. You were so helpful and patient every step of the way (even when I had a few worries!) and I absolutely loved my wedding dress. You and Keziah transformed my gown into the perfect dress for me – it was such an amazing experience being able to create something so bespoke and beautiful. On the day everyone kept saying how much they loved the dress. Thank you again , Ellie. 
Hi Michaela  
Some pictures as promised from our wedding ,. Thank you for all your help in choosing it ! 
"Quite simply the most wonderful wedding dress shop we visited. From the moment we arrived to the prosecco at the end, we had a great experience. Michaela was interested in the bride and knew exactly which dresses would suit and work woth the 'theme' of the wedding. She allowed us time to soak in the dresses one by one but volunteered her thoughts when absolutely appropriate. Michaela was welcoming, experienced, calm and knowledgable (not to mention the beautiful variety of dresses she has) which is just what we needed and at the pivotal moment of saying 'yes' all the stops were pulled out to make it so extra special. Thank you for helping us find THE dress and giving us the best appoinment we'd had." 
Nicki Maguire, Mum of  
Bride-to-Be Freya 
I had such a wonderful experience at Clifton Brides at the weekend. Michaela knew exactly what I was after and showed me a selection of amazing dresses and we fell in love with the first one I tried on! I was worried about getting the dress in time for our September wedding (due to Covid delays) but Michaela put me at ease and I have no worries at all about the dress arriving in time for the wedding..

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 . 
"Hi Michaela 
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!" 
Cheryl Haines 
"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." 
Mrs Lippiatt x 
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 
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 xx 
Alison Adams 
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

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

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.) 
Elizabeth Morre 
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 
Elle Ashwell 
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 
Eileen & Les 
To all the ladies at Clifton Brides,  
Thank you so much for everything!!  
From first appointment to last fitting everyone has been so kind, helpful and incredibly knowledgable. 
I love my dress and i cant thank you enough for helping me find it and making it fit like a glove!

"Thank you Michaela, you made my dress shopping experience so lovely! I am SO excited that I have found "the one" with you.I cannot wait until September 2021!! I would recommend Clifton Bries to everyone, what a lovely shop ! Thank you again! XxX" 
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

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.
