I found my stunning Sophia Tolli wedding dress at one of the Bridal Mill's 2017 sample sales. A beautiful dress and the same high end service a normal customer would get - I'd encourage any prospective bride to attend your next sample event! Poppy x
I just wanted to say a gigantic thank you to Charlotte and all the team for helping me get my perfect Wedding Dress. I could not recommend you guys enough, from start to end I was carefully looked after, informed and supported.
When I first arrived for my appointment Charlotte helped me greatly and even chose my Wedding Dress saying that this would of been her pick - she was right! I did not really know what I wanted but she hit the nail on the head!
Your service is outstanding and you are all so friendly and helpful. I must also say my seamstress took so much time and care with me to get the dress exact and was very talented.
Hi Charlotte and everyone at The Bridal Mill!
Thanks again so much for everything, we had a magical day and I felt like royalty in my dress!
I had a wonderful time finding my dress in the Bridal Mill - plenty of beautiful dresses to try on and in such lovely surroundings. I felt fantastic wearing my dress - a crucial part of our amazing day! Thanks for all your help and also to the seamstress for doing such a great job!
All the best,
Thank you so much to everyone at the Bridal mill for helping me with my wedding dress. I had an amazing day and I absolutely loved my dress. I think everyone else did too :) I got lots of lovely compliments on it.
Thank you again
I would just like to say a massive thankyou to all the girls at The Bridal Mill. When I wore my dress for the first time, I knew it was the one, I fell in love with it instantly. The girls were so helpful, lovely and patient. The dress I chose is incredible, and fitted me so well.
I will be recommending you to all my friends and family. Laura x
Thank you again for all of your help in the lead up to our wedding. I couldn't fault your customer service, kindness and enthusiasm to your brides. I went to 4 other shops in the same day before the Bridal Mill and it was a breath of fresh air to walk in and try on your dresses - I wish I had started with you. From that moment right up to me taking it away you were perfect - thank you. It was particularly useful that you open late enough in the evenings for me to get to you after work.
The only wedding dress shop I went to and only 4 dresses tried! Such a lovely group of ladies which made the experience of choosing a wedding dress so enjoyable! I would recommend to all :) Hayley-Jane Horton x
Thank you so much for all your support, advice and patience in the lead up to our wedding. I absolutely loved the dress- a huge thank you! I am thrilled that we came across your gorgeous shop last summer. You've been amazing.
Lots of Love Hannah xx
Hello to all at the Bridal Mill,
As promised I am attaching some photos from our Wedding on the 9th August.
Thank you again for everything you all did. My dress went down incredibly well and people are still talking about it. I'm struggling with the fact I want to wear it again! It's so beautiful.
You were all fantastic and I would recommend the Bridal Mill to anyone. The experience was so special and it made the whole process perfect! My Husband was speechless. Thank you for helping me find the right dress for that effect!!

Thank you for all your help with choosing my dress, you have a brilliant selection of dresses and I received such excellent customer service throughout the process from my first trying on appointment to taking home my dress home. Even then I revisited the shop the day before the wedding to get my dress steamed. I cannot thank you enough.
Many Thanks & Kind Regards

We just got back from our minimoon and wanted to say a huge thank you to you all at the Bridal Mill.
The dress was absolutely stunning and the work put into the fittings and alterations were really appreciated. Here are a few photos of Jo in the dress, we will send over some more when we get them from our photographer.
Thanks again for all your help.
Jo and Phil
I have enclosed a few pictures of me in my beautiful dress!
Thank you so much for all your help with choosing my dress. All of you were always so helpful from the choosing of the dress to the changes I made over the months leading up to the day! Special thanks to Charlotte for being so patient with me and my deliberation over adding sleeves and changing the back. So glad I made that change!
I had so many compliments about my dress and I really did feel so amazing wearing it on the day.
Thanks again Botley Bridal Team
From Charlotte clorley
You were all so friendly and helpful especially when I wanted to change the neckline of the dress you could not have been more helpful. The seamstress was brilliant as well. All round amazing service which gave me a dress I felt wonderful in and really helped make our day so special. Thank you so much
I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me to pick out my dress. It was a brilliant day - we had the best time. And I didn't fall over the dress at all! Just wish there was a reason to wear it again ????
From the moment I walked into The Bridal Mill I had a feeling this would be the place I would buy my wedding dress. Everyone in the shop was so friendly and welcoming and I instantly felt comfortable and at ease.
As I chose a Phoenix Gowns dress designed by Danielle Couture I was able to adapt the dress to my own specifications and it was made to my exact measurements - basically a bespoke dress without a bespoke price tag.
In all our dealings with The Bridal Mill we experienced the utmost professionalism from Charlotte, Anita, Rosie and all the team and I could not be more delighted. They created the dress of my dreams and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
