Fantastic Experience
This was the best experience I could have hoped for. They explained to me who they are and how they operate, went through each step. There was no pressure what's so ever and both Ramsey and Emma were so lovely. The shop is clean and tidy and very well laid out. They know what they are doing. I went to see one other place after (this was my first shop) and it was pointless. I found the dress and service I wanted at Village Brides.

A lovely, stress-free experience
I had an excellent experience with Village Brides. I had only tried on dresses in one other place previously, and identified a dress style that seemed to work on me. I wanted to try a few more on, but didn't want dress-buying to become a confusing and stressful saga, and hoped (but didn't dare expect) that I would find my dress in one visit to Village Brides. And I did find it! I now have a really beautiful dress that I'm very happy with.

When I visited, Village Brides had a good selection of different dresses in my size (10-12) for me to try. I told Emma my maximum budget and she showed me ones that would come within it (and also pointed out which ones definitely wouldn't). She was relaxed, calm, friendly and professional - I didn't feel at all stressed at any point, and it was altogether an enjoyable experience. She didn't impose her own opinion on me, and was very helpful when I needed information/advice about the different dresses.

Thank you Emma!

Amazing place!
I knew when I met Ramsey at the Manor House Hotel Open Day that this shop was the one. I just had a good feeling about it - and that was completely founded when I visited for my first appointment. Emma was absolutely great - made me feel very comfortable straight away and helped me to find, after trying on a handful of dresses, "the one". Emma and Ramsey tried to find the dress elsewhere in the next size up but the dress had been discontinued - luckily they put me in touch with their seamstress who will be making the alterations (and for a really good price too). Watching Emma and Debbie (the seamstress) was a class act in itself :) The fact they donate a portion of the sale to the baby unit at the JR is also a big plus - I ended up spending more than intended on the dress but it feels more "worth it" when you know some of the money is going to a good cause. I can see why this shop has won awards - they fully deserve it. I cannot recommend this place enough!

I am lost for words (but not enough to stop me writing a review)
Well, I don't know where to begin. I wanted a place I could return to, again and again (if needed) to find my dress, somewhere relaxed and with the customer at their heart where I might find something a little more unique, ideally putting my money into a small business. Not only did Village Brides tick *all* of these boxes, but it is also in the most stunning location and has grown from a wonderful unique back story - this couldn't have been a more perfect experience, even more than I'd ever imagined.

So quick to reply to my many messages, incredibly personable, very knowledgeable, open and honest. The most accommodating and relaxing wedding dress shopping experience I've ever had - this coming from a nervous bride, shy of 'all eyes on me' situations. Both Emma and Ramsey gave such insightful guidance and sound advice without being in the least bit pushy or overbearing. I didn't feel like just another bride, everything I (and those with me) did/said (which they must have experienced a million times over), felt as though it was the first time they'd encountered it - genuine, kind and caring people, you are wholly deserving of your most recent industry award - BEST IN THE WORLD!

I just wish every business were the same. Please, if you are looking for somewhere to find your dress, Village Brides is all you will need - their stock changes frequently, always a one off more unique find, masses of choice. My only disappointment is that Ramsey doesn't have more businesses in other industries - the world benefits from business professionals like he and Emma.

first class service
I have never had such good customer service emma is one of the most loveliest people I have met I could not rate this bridal shop enough. Both ramsey and emma made it possible for me to get my dream dress. I would highly recommend any brides to visit this shop as there is no where else that would give such good and friendly service cant thank them enough for all they have done for me.
