About Us

Dressing brides for over 30 years: the Hilary B story

Established in 1985, Hilary has consistently expanded and developed the Hilary B name into what it is today. A name recognized throughout the county for its service in bridal wear. We are extremely proud of our reputation due to our exceptionally high level of customer service. Our top priority is, and always has been, the care of our bride and her attendants, and the testimonials we receive from them prove we achieve these aims.

Anyone making an appointment to browse our shop will be welcomed with no pressure to buy.

We firmly believe that the moment when a bride chooses THE dress, it should be as special as the day itself. After all, your wedding plans are all part of that day, and we try to make your bridal appointment enjoyable and a time to remember forever.

Our business is very different to how it was all those years ago, but our dedication to good service remains the same.

We are thrilled to see our brides from over 20 years ago returning with their own daughters to choose gowns for yet another generation of weddings.
