Wow what can I say! Gorgeous location, free and ample parking, the most friendliest and helpful staff and most important of all the biggest collection of the most amazing wedding and bridesmaid dresses I’ve seen. The only ‘problem’ you will have is which one to choose. I found my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses in one day and found the whole experience truly magical. Special thanks to Claire. You are so lovely and made us all feel very special and relaxed. Can’t wait for our dresses to arrive so we can come and see you all again!

I just want to say an enormous thank you to all and especially Hilary for all your help and assistance over the last 15 months. You always met and helped us with such happy smiles and gave us some great advice. I was so happy to not only have bought my dress from you but also my bridesmaid dresses and mens ties. Lisa

I knew Hilary B was going to be the first and only bridal shop I would need to visit when trying to find my perfect wedding dress! All the girls there are amazing, friendly and put you at ease from the moment you walk in the door. All of their dresses are beautiful and I found my dream dress, I cannot thank them for enough for this, it was everything I had ever dreamed of. From my first visit to taking my dress home, the whole experience was wonderful and the team were more than helpful in every way. I would highly recommend Hilary B to anyone getting married xx Hannah

We visited many bridal shops yesterday and Hilary B was outstanding for service and the vast amount of beautiful dresses. We were made to feel at ease and under no pressure. We came away after finally choosing a dress feeling we had made the right choice. Thank you Hilary B. Karen Telfer

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Hilary B who helped me choose my dress and accessories and with the alterations. The bridesmaids and flower girls looked very cute and beautiful respectively. It was a wonderful day and miraculously the sun shone. Thank you once again. Louise

The service Hilary B provided was superb, the alterations were perfect and everytime I walked in nothing was too much trouble. With Jon away in Afghanistan you were a great help on a professional and personal level. Thank you so much! Nicola Cox

Words cannot describe the way yourself and you amazing team have helped me, my Mum and bridesmaids over the past year. The service that we received is out of this world. Everybody commented on my dress and said how stunning it was.

Hilary B – well what can I say, absolutely amazing customer service in particular Hilary herself and Claire that helped me in picking my dream wedding dress. Everyone was amazing, we didn’t feel rushed or pressured into buying anything. You took great care of myself and my bridesmaids especially my little flower girl and will always remember that. Even ringing me to see how we are getting on with the wedding prep and a wedding card was greatly appreciated. Hand on heart Hilary B will always be recommended to my friends and family, and I can never thank you enough!

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Hilary B, for their patience ,kindness and just generally their great customer service. Today Claire found my perfect dress for me, totally different to what I thought I wanted!! Just goes to show you need to keep an open mind and be willing to try ” that something different” to find what suits you best.
