Here are some of the wonderful comments we received from our amazing Brides and Grooms that voted for us – thank you xx
“One of my best friends and I were getting married around the same time, we came to the bridal studio to look for wedding dresses for my friend and bridesmaid dresses for me. We found both in this beautiful little shop. They were extremely helpful and lovely. The dresses were all perfect. Couldn’t rate enough.”
“Words can’t actually describe how much I fell in love with my dress.
For years I’ve always known I wanted to get married in yellow, so I was absolutely delighted when I walked into The Bridal Studio to be greeted by a lovely Tara and Wendy who informed me, they have a WHOLE RANGE of dresses available in almost any colour! There were parts of the dress I wanted to be changed which was possible too. Nothing was too much effort for Tara or Wendy, and nothing seemed impossible for these fab ladies!
Organising a wedding is stressful but the whole process of finding my dress, having it fitted and taken in etc was SO stress free and I’ve loved every minute. Tara even came to my wedding to help me into my dress on my big day. The thought and detail Tara put into my journey of finding the perfect dress and up until the big day was just impeccable.
These amazing ladies genuinely care and clearly love their jobs and it really shows. I felt like the most important customer which, as a bride to be, is exactly how you should feel. I can’t recommend the Bridal Studio enough. THANK YOU! Xxx”
“After visiting a handful of bridal shops, I was starting to wonder if we would ever find bridesmaid dresses in a style to suit all and to match the colour scheme.
Once we walked into the Bridal studio we could not have been made to feel more welcome, the service was absolutely outstanding and nothing was ever to much trouble for Tara she went above and beyond to help us find the perfect dresses for the bridesmaid and flower girls (even staying open later one evening so we could have a dress fitting.
All of the bridesmaids said how comfortable the dress was and that they felt so at ease when in the shop.
Everyone said on the day how stunning the bridesmaids and flower girls looked.
Thank you so much Tara for helping me find the perfect dresses for my beautiful girls and being so kind, calm and efficient.
I would definitely recommend this business to any future brides, family and friends
“I never thought for one minute I’d become a bride but when I started looking for my dress The Bridal Shop was the first place myself my mum and my cousin visited. Tara was so welcoming and attentive. I told her exactly the style plain and simple but elegant if I could possibly ever look elegant. She took on what I had said and picked out 3 dresses to start. All 3 were beautiful and fit lovely but she had more another 3 and another and before I knew it I had been there 3hrs and tried on 15. Tara helped me in and out all with a smile on her face. Nothing was too much trouble, u could tell she was enjoying every minute even if I had walked away with nothing, she was amazing. As it was I purchased the very first one I tried. There were lots of tears from myself and she was there with a box of tissues a hug and lots of encouragement in telling me how beautiful I looked. We also walked away with a stunning veil also. I would recommend to anyone going to The Bridal Studio. Tara and her team are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and if necessary, she would have stayed there all night. I have everything crossed for this wonderful woman and her team and her beautiful shop.”
“A small but eclectic mix of wedding dresses with obvious careful consideration of suppliers. Bespoke service, Tara really went the extra mile to ensure I had the dress I wanted. This helped by her knowledge and connection with other local business. Easy to make appointments and get in touch generally. A real pleasurable experience.”
“Great service from start to finish. Very welcoming putting me at ease as soon as I walked through the door. Professional, helpful and friendly device while choosing my dress. Couldn’t have wished for a nicer, easier or more relaxed experience. Thank you!”
“We got married Sept 2nd and I purchased my beautiful dress from Tara and her team at The Bridal Studio in Helston. This was actually the first dress shop I tried. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the ladies. They were so attentive and didn’t rush me. I tried on at least 15 dresses until I actually brought the first one I tried on. They took their time to choose dresses that they knew would suit me and also sizing was good, they didn’t try and squeeze me into a dress that was too small. They offered drinks on all visits. They also got me in touch with a lovely lady for alterations on the dress and let me come bk to the shop where my dress was kept so I could get it altered there instead of going elsewhere. They are an amazing team and truly deserve this award. Tara and her team should be very proud of their achievements with their beautiful shop and if anyone ever asks about bridal shops The Bridal Studio is always the first place, I tell them to go. X”
“By far the best experience I had when wedding dress shopping. Customer service and attention to detail has been excellent. I would (and do) highly recommend this supplier to others.”
“Lovely bridal shop, great selection of dresses and they were always happy to help and give their advice. Would definitely recommend.”
“The Bridal Studio is a cute little boutique with some beautiful dresses and veils, it’s not as big inside as some of the others I went to but I loved it! The ladies there are so committed to giving you the very best time and helping you to try on and find your perfect dress. I bought a beautiful sample which cost me much less than I was expecting, and it was PERFECT. What these girls don’t know isn’t worth knowing, a terrific team of ladies worth their weight in gold. Tara helped me in finding the perfect dress and with an amazing seamstress for the alterations. If I was choosing a winner for this award it would be The Bridal Studio for sure!!!”
“With my mum, I visited lots of boutiques to look for the perfect wedding dress. Tara took the time to go through each of the gowns with us, she explained all of the possible options and allowed me to try each of the gowns I liked the look of and also encouraged me to try others so I wouldn’t have any regrets. I loved that at no point were we given any pushy sales patter, we were offered as much time as I wanted. The dresses at The Bridal Studio are all beautiful and unlike some other boutiques, I visited these all looked perfect, no buttons or beads hanging off, no makeup residue from previous brides and all gorgeous! Tara and her staff offer such a welcome and made us all feel like a million dollars. I would always recommend the Bridal Studio to any bride if they’re looking for the perfect dress experience.”
“Could not ask any more of the Bridal Studio, they made me feel incredible and so very comfortable. We received the very best service and ended up with the most amazing dress!!! I went away feeling totally in love with my dress and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any bride, it was such a special experience.”
“Went into the bridal studio. Tara was so helpful and very enthusiastic couldn’t rate bridal studio enough. Loved the dress I’ve chosen for my special day very much enjoyed the whole wedding dress experience. I came away from the Bridal Studio feeling on top of the world. Nothing was too much trouble and I was made to feel like the most important bride in the world”
“Tara was amazing from start to finish. There was no pressure at any point to purchase anything, and she really paid attention to what I was looking for. She gave lots of helpful advice, and even got a dress couriered down specifically so I could see the colour in person! I had several trips looking for a dress, and every time Tara was helpful and always eager to please. I would definitely recommend Tara and The bridal Studio, so happy with my choice.”
“The whole experience of choosing my wedding dress was absolutely amazing I was put at ease, given really helpful advice and made to feel special -just what you want as a bride!”
