Styled Shoots
I've worked with Bex on two professional styled shoots now and I have to say on both occasions her dresses were just absolutely beautiful. She's so passionate, creative and full of energy/enthusiasm. It's been a real pleasure - I hope we work together again in future.

Bex does something different to other bridal shops...
Bex does something different to other bridal shops. I thought I would not be able to find a unique dress in the north east however my friend recommended bex. This was the first place I went to and only the second Dress that I tried on. The dress wasn't on display however I showed bex a couple of pics of the style I was going for and she brought out two dresses and the second one was just perfect! I was really nervous About looking for a dress but the experience with bex was great.

Visited Bex brides for 1950's style dress...
Visited Bex brides for 1950's style dress. Tried on dress which wasn't quite right, Bex immediately understood what I wanted and got to work straight away removing the bits I didn't like and I hadn't decided to buy it!, she knows what you want and what suits your figure. Her knowledge, eye for detail and sewing skills are second to none - the alterations and embellishments created a dress that was a one off" rather than "off the peg" and gave me my perfect wedding dress."
