Carrie and Sadie at The Real Wedding Collective provide a warm, welcoming experience within their beautiful boutique. I had no idea what style of dress would suit me. After trying on a few beautiful gowns, Sadie brought I a gown I had overlooked-This was the gown of my dreams. I am so excited to visit again and show my gown to my Friends……Lisa.

This business has been in the pipeline for years, but life and time got in the way. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do as we both love fashion and a bloomin’ good wedding.
In the middle of the pandemic, we both re-evaluated everything and decided now was the right time to pursue the dream of owning our very own luxury bridal boutique.
Carrie, working within the hair and make-up industry has been involved in the wedding sector for over 20 years. Sadie’s background is numbers. Working as an accountant she’s the number cruncher but is also a massive fashionista!
We’re both lovers of fashion, a well-cut dress and Sadie’s love for shoes, bags and accessories is something else. But we also both appreciate how confident you can feel in the right outfit.
We now also have an extensive collection of bridesmaids dresses, from Dessy, Watters and the award winning multiway dress designer Onlyway.
And we now have a stunning selection of Prom dresses, from Morilee and Gino Cerutti. With our Prom dresses there’s sure to be something for all styles and budgets.
Our sample dresses in store can be ordered from a size 6 – 32. Our sample sizes we carry range from a size 10-18 the average size being a 12 and 14
I’ve visited the bridal shop twice. First time to try on bridal dresses, Carrie gave me, my mother-in-law and one of my bridesmaids an amazing experience. Carrie is so caring, fun and listened to everything I wanted. Second time I visited I came with my 4 bridesmaids and had another amazing experience. Carrie made it so much fun and so relaxed and helped find the perfect bridesmaids dresses for all my bridesmaids. I would highly recommend visiting The Real Wedding Collective. They have so many beautiful wedding dresses and a great selection of bridesmaids dresses.
Had such a fabulous time choosing my wedding dress with Carrie and Sadie. From the moment I walked in I felt at ease and so excited. There was a beautiful range of dresses to try and a cuppa or a glass of bubbly for my mum. There was no pressure to buy on the day, I came back with my sister and we found the one. I would highly recommend buying from a local family business. Emma
I can’t say one bad word! My whole experience here was absolutely amazing. Carrie was wonderful with me and my girls from start to finish. The dresses were beautiful, so beautiful in fact that I SAID YES TO THE DRESS. Can’t recommend this boutique enough. Such a warm and welcoming environment! Just what you need when it’s all feeling a little overwhelming for first timers shopping for dresses, like myself. Thank you again
Tonight, I tired on my first wedding dress….9- 10 dresses later I found THE ONE!! Carrie was wonderful. Best evening we’ve had out for a long time. Thank you so much! I would recommend 100%. I was so nervous (I nearly cancelled I was that nervous) but was put at ease by such wonderful people and atmosphere. Thank YOU! I cant wait to get married in that dress!!
Carrie was amazing on my visit to The Real Wedding collective. Carrie made the experience personal to me and so relaxed. The experience was amazing and truly special. I haven’t bought my dress yet, but going back to try on bridesmaids dresses with my bridesmaids and can not wait as I know Carrie will make the visit vey special for me and my bridesmaids xx
What an amazing experience from the ladies at The Real wedding Collective. I reached out to them as I thought I had found THE dress online but there was nowhere close that stocked it for me to try, but they managed to get it into their store for me to try on…..and it was the best experience. Carrie and Sadie made me and my friend feel so at home and we ended up getting THE dress. Honestly can’t thank them enough.

Absolutely amazing!! I am so pleased I booked this spontaneous appointment today. Found so many beautiful dresses and eventually found THE ONE. Carrie is so helpful and so understanding. We will absolutely be back to fit my bridesmaids for some dresses. Couldn’t be more happy really. Thank you
Had a really wonderful experience with my daughter at this shop. The ladies were very friendly and put my daughter at ease. A wonderful collection of dresses, some a little different from the normal as well as more traditional. Would highly recommend this shop.
Carrie and Sadie at The Real Wedding Collective are absolutely amazing. It was the first and last store I visited to find my dream gown. Not only did they have an amazing selection but they made me feel so comfortable. There was no pressure, and the experience was amazing from start to finish. I’ve picked up my dream dress for my wedding in October. If you’re considering visiting for your wedding gown, I couldn’t recommend the store enough. Thank you for helping me…….Danielle xx
