My experience at The Bride Shop was truly one of a kind. The owner of the shop is such a lovely lady along with her mum, they make you feel so welcome and nothing is to much trouble. I was so nervous about finding ‘thee dress’ but Cath was absolutely amazing. She made it a relaxed and enjoyable experience for me and my bride tribe. I tried on a selection of her dresses which are all gorgeous and at a very reasonable price. I didn’t feel rushed at all and we happily chatted away while trying on the dresses. I really love the dress I chose from this shop and can’t wait to wear it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this shop to anyone. Thank you for everything you have both done for me.

Cath and her mum did a great job trying to find the best dress for me with such a little notice given. I was leaving the country following day for my wedding and due to the pandemic, I was left with very little choice as most of the other shops are still either closed, out of business or high street shops won’t allow you to try anything on. All the social distancing rules were followed, we wore face masks while trying the dresses on and temperature check on arrival made me feel very safe and protected. The shop was spotlessly clean too. They started with asking questions about what I would like, what day is going to be like, what the groom wearing and based on that they gave me several options of dresses, I tried them all on, liked many of them but I really loved one. I was a bit afraid going on my own as was worried I would get pressured to buy a dress however I felt really at ease and felt they genuinely wanted me to get what’s right for me. I can’t wait to wear the dress! Thank you ladies!

Cath and her family were absolutely fabulous! I could not have asked for a better time choosing my wedding dress. I am a plus size bride, and wedding dress shopping could have been a bit daunting. From the moment I walked into the shop I felt so at ease. Cath made my experience so special, and made me feel so comfortable. She even picked out a dress for me which was the one I ended up going for. She is very professional and has a great eye. Everything was so easy, and nothing was too much trouble for Cath. I felt like a princess and all thanks to Cath.

Well, I can’t give enough praise. Cath and her mum Pat are the loveliest people you would ever wish to meet. The dresses are beautiful and there are so many styles to explore. Cath put me at ease and made the experience so fun and enjoyable with zero pressure. Cath was also helpful with picking out dresses incorporating all the bits I wanted. I can’t thank Cath enough and would HIGHLY recommend this store to anyone.

What is your most memorable wedding?

One of my couples got married at The Yoghurt Rooms in East Grinstead. The whole place is so pretty, there is a newly built bandstand where the ceremony can take place. They also have a yurt where the couple can stay overnight and there is accommodation for a number of guests to stay there too. There's a lake and a swing from a tree and just off the large barn where the reception is held, there is a cow milking shed so if you love nature, this is your ideal venue.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Quality, feminine, elegant, boho, pretty

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm so proud of our google reviews, my mum and I have had the loveliest feedback. Every time I read a new one it makes me smile :)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

If I was to only give one tip it would be to enjoy the planning, not to let the organisation take over, there is a lot to sort out and book, but if you allow yourself plenty of time you can enjoy every step of the way.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

On the tables were packs of cards with questions about the couple, this was great for conversation starters with guests you don't know.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I tend to only see the brides and their family and bridesmaids. The bride will come in for her appointment where we get to know what she likes and dislikes, we try them in as many styles and colours so they can eliminate what they do and don't prefer. Once we find their dress, this is ordered and we then next see them on their return to retry the dress on and take it home. We have our own seamstresses who comes back to the shop for their final fitting so I can see how the finished dress looks.

What do you love most about your job?

I love that special moment when the bride realises she's found her dress, it's often emotional as they feel amazing in it. Girls give themselves a hard time a lot of the time and when I see a girl realise how beautiful she looks in her dress, it's the best feeling. I'm a silversmith by trade so work in my workshop making jewellery between bridal appointments. I'm always honoured to be asked to make their wedding rings. I make various bespoke or plain wedding bands for the grooms and I make wedding rings for the brides sometimes to fit around the most unusual shaped engagement rings. I also make a lot of bridesmaid and mother of the bride gifts too. These are often personalised.

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

I love a boho style dress, with the right venue this looks perfect.

What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?

One of my brides had her bridesmaids write a little message in blue biro and sign it on the soles of her shoes. This is a fun way to discretely include blue.

What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?

I get asked this all the time and it is literally the hardest question. There are so many stunning dresses, one that particularly sticks in my mind is one I stock which has 30,000 crystals on the bodice and a tulle full skirt, it's absolutely stunning.
