One Of The Best Experiences

“When Ben proposed to in March 2016, one of the first choices I made was the dress; I knew exactly what I wanted. It was so important to me to combine elegance and comfort which I really struggled to find in a bridal shop. I made my own research and found Chantelle online. From our first meeting, she knew exactly what I was after. This has been one of the best experiences so far for me: meetings start with the usual cup of tea, followed by discussions during which Chantelle listens to you carefully; several fittings and at the end of it, you receive the wedding dress of your dreams and got to know such a lovely, kind and extremely professional individual. I would recommend her to anyone who gets married and is after that unique experience of a personalised and beautiful dress, with perfection in every detail.” 2017 Camille Mangelinckx

Your Service Is Impeccable

“I just wanted to put something in writing to you to say a very big thank you for your contribution to making my big day special by your expertise in doing the alterations to my wedding dress which was too large everywhere even with lots of heavy lace on it and also my daughters bridesmaid dress which had delicate lace and beading around the neckline which I thought was going to be impossible to alter. Your service is impeccable and we were both made to feel not only very calm in the knowledge of your skills but in also your professionalism with being made to feel comfortable throughout all stages of the fittings. The dresses were not the most expensive ones but your service costs were great value for money to make my day special. Thank you once again. I can not recommend your services enough and I would be more than happy in person to put anyone’s mind at rest who was considering using your services. As you can see. A happy day was had by all. Thank you.” 2017 – Jacqui

“I purchased my gown online, when it arrived the sizing was not quite as expected. I took the gown to Chantelle who sympathetically fitted a new back panel decorated with embroidered applique. Chantelle also adjusted the hem length to make it easy to wear. Then she pressed and hung the dress in a bag ready for my special wedding day. Chantelle’s work was beautiful and must be highly commended.” 2016 – Casey-Ruth

Not only is she easy to work with, she took all the stress away and made the process of getting the perfect look fun. The finished products were a dress that turned heads and many happy memories in getting it. A dress designed and made especially for you means so much more than one purchased from the rail.
