What Our Customers Say

This was my first stop when I started searching for my wedding dress, I had an appointment with Ellie and she was amazing, made me feel at ease, helped me find a style that suited me well, she new I wanted lace and she listened, I found the perfect dress, but as any bride would I looked around other shops but nothing compared to this Stella York dress i found at Ellies shop. She was happy to have a second appointment with me a few months later and I finally purchased the beautiful dress. Thank you Ellie

Absolutely incredible! I have no words for how amazing this bridal shop is and an extra special shout-out to Ellie! I tried so many shops, from Bond Street in central london, to Brentwood, and on one lucky day for me a good friend recommended Oliver’s and completely changed the game for me. Ellie was reassuring, patient and kind not only to me but my guests also. She made the experience wonderful for me and really showed me how it should be in comparison to the others I’d visited! Ladies do not settle and choose anywhere, trust your gut, keep looking, and come and visit Oliver’s Bridal!
