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.
Bridal Dressing Service
Have Carrie come to your venue to dress you on your special day.
Take the stress out of your big day and let the bridal party get ready at their leisure while Carrie takes care of perfectly dressing you on your wedding day.
Bridal dressing service comprises of my time for 2 hours. Dress steaming, especially the train, and assisting the bride carefully into her dress, making sure all layers of the dress are perfectly smoothed before walking down the aisle. Any other last minute issues can be taken care of for example stain removal in case there’s any mishaps, and a sewing kit to reattach any loose buttons.
£100 + mileage costs
Travel to the venue from the boutique and back again, so total mileage covered @£1 per mile, for example; 10 miles would be £10
£50 steaming of the bridesmaids dresses and assisting bridesmaids into dresses.

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
