"I totally loved wearing my separates! So many people commented on them and loved the fact that it wasn't a dress. The top and skirt were so comfy and I can not wait to wear the top with some jeans and heals for all our anniversaries to come!Everyone loved the veil too and it was certainly a tear jerker! Everyone at Story of My Dress has been fab and Gill is an absolute sewing genius! Thanks so much for all the fun appointments"

"I found Story of My Dress on Instagram and instantly knew I had to go there first when looking for my wedding dress. Back in January, myself and my bride squad turned up and after 2 hrs of fun, i had found the perfect combination for my bespoke wedding dress. Cara was brilliant throughout, listened to what I wanted and help put different combinations together. After that appointment I knew I didn’t want to go anywhere else and Story Of My Dress was the only dress shop I went to! Little did I know in the January, that a global pandemic was just around the corner. When I went for my first fitting in March I still did not believe my wedding day in late September would be impacted. However when the country went into lock down, the closer September got, we began to realise the wedding we had originally planned was not going to be possible; we’d always wanted a small wedding anyway in my parent’s garden, however the guest list was suddenly cut from 85 down to 30 - a lot more intimate and personal than originally planned. Cara, Sammy and Gill were fantastic and so supportive during the next couple of fittings I had and I knew I was doing the right thing by going ahead with the day and not postponing."

Amazing experience from start to finish. Worked with both Cara and Gill to find and perfect my dream dress and dreamy personalised veil. Was completely put at ease and felt like a princess at all my fittings! Could not recommend enough x


Such a lovely experience at this boutique. It's really relaxed and the dresses are all of excellent quality and so beautiful. The ladies who work here are helpful and friendly, no pressure at all - they just want to make you comfortable. We travelled from London to this small boutique and I'm so glad we did.


Story of My Dress really is a wonderfully unique and intimate shopping experience. With 100% devotion to you and your appointment and the most stunning array of dresses you can imagine. Having gone in with a view of what I wanted I ended up being torn between 3 as the selection they carry was so gorgeous. They cater for a modern stylish bride and the service they offer is second to none. From my first shopping appointment to subsequent fittings I was super impressed with everything they had to offer. Would highly recommend!
