"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. Thanks so much for all the fun appointments"

Our Bride Emma

"Amazing experience from start to finish. Worked with Cara 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"

Our bride Georgia

"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."

Our bride Elle

"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!"

Our bride Gemma

"Where to begin… I can’t thank Story of My Dress enough for helping me create my dream bridal look - the drive from London was worth it every time to see the team and my dress. The dresses on the rails are all beautiful, but what really made SOMD stand out for me was the fact the team work with you to make your perfect bridal look; I went from separates to an SOMD fully customise original. Thank you to Cara & Ashleigh for making the wedding dress shopping so enjoyable x"
