& just like that I found THE dress
I popped in to Serenity Brides just on the off chance to enquire if they stocked a dress i’d tried on in Kent, unfortunately they didn’t but invited me to have a look round as there was a sale on, after happily perusing I saw the dress of my dreams peaking out!! One of the sales assistant spotted my find & were only too happy for me to try the dress on without an appointment, they were so incredibly lovely & helpful & of course the second I had the dress on I just knew it was THE dress!! There were tears, bubbly & lots of pics! Simply an amazing day, amazing staff & such a gorgeous shop & dressing rooms!! They were only too happy to help & had boxes of tissues on hand for me & my mum!!

Best experience!
I went to Serenity Brides at there old shop in October 2016 and found my dream dress with the help of the girls in there. When my dress arrived I went to the new shop to try it on where it was then altered to my shape, I went in for another couple of appointments where they made sure my dress was perfect. I had my day on the 22/10/2017 and I honestly felt like a princess which I wouldn’t have done if it hadn’t been for the wonderful girls at serenity brides. Thank you so much for everything that you did for me and for my bridesmaids with there beautiful dresses Aime x

Happy to say I found my dress!
I went into serenity brides with my matron of honour, my mum, my baby daughter, my chief bridesmaid and another bridesmaid unsure if I needed an appointment, I was told it wasn't needed and I was welcomed into the shop (I was like a kid in a toy shop there was so much choice) I was starting to loose hope as had been to a few shops before and didn't find my one. I picked out 4 dresses to try on and happy to say I found my dress!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH CHANTELLE!!! XXX

What is your most memorable wedding?

We only usually deal with the bride. Our first step is a consultation to find out her likes and dislikes and we try as many dresses as she wishes and get to find out her favourites and the look she's going for. Once we have that, we also suggest some gowns.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

One of the simplest we ever saw. But the bride looked beautiful and you just felt the love and joy that day.
