Found my dream dress on Google and Gatehouse Brides was the nearest stockist – I’m so glad they were as the moment I stepped into the boutique on a drizzly Wednesday morning I was greeted by Julie and her beaming smile.

The shop itself had just been decorated, and it was beautiful and the dress labels with their shocking pink ribbons  stood out with a classy edge. I felt comfortable with Julie she was really down to earth but very professional. I tried on a variety of dresses and the one I came for- such beautiful dresses, getting to try on such stunning dresses I will treasure forever.

My dress “Kathryn” was even more stunning in real life and I was super lucky to get it in the sample sale. Every step of the way Julie was amazing and luckily we agreed on styles – I can’t wait to go back and try belts and veils. I know I will get great advice from Julie once again.

Can’t praise this shop any higher thank you

I had my appointment at Gatehouse Brides in August. It was the first bridal shop I had been to with no idea of what style to go for and what would suit me. I needn’t have worried, Julie and Hannah were fantastic! They were able to guide me through the process of choosing a wedding dress in a very relaxed and unrushed way with a great range of wedding dresses. They both have a genuine interest in the client (unlike some shops I went to) and were incredibly helpful and have continued to be since my appointment. I would recommend Gatehouse Brides to anyone who is starting their amazing journey to their wedding day.

Just wanted to thank you once again for making me your lucky competition winner! I had an appointment today and tried on lots of lovely shoes and hair accessories! Nothing was too much trouble and I have come away with lots of great advice and ideas (as well as some BEAUTIFUL accessories for the big day!) Once again, thank you for your amazing service

Had such a great experience here with my family, the ladies here really made me and my family feel welcome and comfortable. I found my perfect dress with their amazing help and what they recommended! Julie also went out of her way to find the perfect accessory in the colour I wanted to fit with my dress. So professional and welcoming. I drove past this shop for years longingly looking into the windows for my dress one day, and there it was years later. Thank you ladies. Highly recommend!

What a special day! Mum and I have been driving past the shop for 14 years and assigned each of the window dresses to each other over the years! When the time came to finally choose a dress for a REAL wedding there was no other choice – it had to be the gatehouse.

Our nerves and anxious energy were scooped up and dealt with in the most professional way. We were made to feel so very special and the attention paid to the wedding itself, myself as a bride but also me as a person was just incredible. Needless to say we were guided to THE dress – something we would never have picked out on our own. These beautiful ladies certainly knew their stuff! Over the appointment they took time to get to know me and really dressed me as me. They set up the moment perfectly, got me in the dress and then stood at a safe distance throwing tissues while the tears flowed! It was the most special moment for mum and I in the 27 years since we were in that hospital and it really did bring back some beautiful memories between Mother and Daughter.

We cannot thank you enough for making the day more special than we could have imagined. We have not stopped looking at the dress since we left and are counting down to its arrival in the shop. We feel blessed to have shared such a beautiful journey with you. 14 years of reviewing and we finally have a favourite gatehouse dress! Xx

I visited Gatehouse Brides for an appointment and they were amazing!! Hannah was there to greet me by the door and instantly realised how nervous I was! She let me take the time to figure out what dresses I liked, what would suit my venue and how I felt. I’m quite a self-conscience girl but left feeling like a real princess and it was a real confidence boost. More importantly I have found the dress of my dreams!!! Couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you!

The most beautiful dresses. A gorgeous shop to go to and get excited about your special day.

Ordered my dress today!!  I absolutely adore it, it’s perfect and my whole experience was made a million times more perfect thanks to Hannah and Julie. Their expert knowledge and guidance has been absolutely priceless; Hannah’s eye for detail is just incredible and Julie’s calm and cheery personality is just what you need when making such an important decision. Thanks ladies! Highly recommend

Was in there today and the service was exceptional, I felt right at home with no pressure. A completely tailored, down to earth and very personal service. The comments and helpful suggestions were so friendly and just what I needed. I don’t think I have ever had such a wonderful experience ever in anything else. The attitude alone makes me want to buy my dress from here and I think today I may have found it. Thank you so much.

Wouldn’t have even considered buying my wedding dress from anywhere else! Five star service. Highly recommend all Worcester brides to come here. Thank you for everything.

Although I didn’t go with a dress from Gatehouse Brides in the end, I had a lovely experience visiting the store. The dress selection is beautiful and Hannah was absolutely fantastic. She knew better than I did what would suit me. She was extremely kind, professional and fun – just what you want from a wedding dress shop. I’ll be recommending you to my friends! Lucie

I love that i got my dress from a shop where the staff are personal, attentive and lovely. A shop where I was made to feel special, beautiful and listened to. A shop where my mum and sister were welcomed, I never felt pressured and my size never mattered. A shop i’ll now want the traffic lights to go red for and i’ll drive past slowly not because i’m dreaming of one day getting my dress there, but to reminisce about the amazing experience I had there getting the dress of my dreams.

I had an appointment on Saturday morning and I can’t sing the praises of Julie and Hannah enough. From the moment Julie replied to my email to book the appointment, to the moment I paid the deposit on the most beautiful dress, I was made to feel special, not just one in a long line of brides. Ever since I was four years old when my Nan used to drive me to school past Gatehouse Brides, I wanted to buy my dress there. I wasn’t sure if I actually ever would and I tried another shop too, but the service and attention given at Gatehouse Brides to me, my Mum and sister, along with surprisingly good prices and stunning dresses meant that I couldn’t choose anywhere else. Julie even let me go back after closing time to try on ‘the dress’ again so I could make sure and I was never rushed. It was relaxing and really special. I would recommend Gatehouse Brides to anyone and everyone. I can’t wait for my dress to come in now to go back! Julie and Hannah thank you for making the day so special for the three of us. xx

I just want to say the biggest thanks I possibly can for helping me find my dress and veil and for all you did to make it the most special and personal experience. I’ll never forget it. I didn’t think a dress could make me feel so beautiful and confident and i’m pleased to say that Adam loved it (and me in it!) too.
