& 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!!

I felt amazing on my wedding day.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Valerie and the team for my beautiful dress. We got married yesterday and despite the rain, we had the best day. I was complimented all day on how stunning my dress was and I have Valerie to thank for that. We booked our wedding only 5 months ago so as soon as we had confirmed it I went straight out looking for my dress. It was the last dress I tried on that day but it needed quite a few alterations and changes to make it perfect for me. Valerie assured me it could be done and she made it happen. I felt amazing on my wedding day. Thank you to you all.

Amazing from the second we walked through the door
Serenity Brides was amazing from the second we walked through the door. They made sure we had a great experience from choosing the dress up to picking it up after final alterations x

I had such a lovely time at both visits
Today I said yes to the dress! X finding my wedding dress was slowing becoming the most stressful part of planning our wedding as I was just genuinely dreading! X being a plus size bride and not happy with with my size I just didn’t want to do it! X but Chantelle and all the ladies at serenity were amazing! X she listened to what I wanted from my dress, we tried and few on, found some good ones and then she went and got one for me to try and this turned out to be the dress of my dreams! X she was extremely patient and helpful! X I had such a lovely time at both visits and can’t wait till my dress comes in so I can put it on again!!! X the seamstress even came to me as I wanted to add a little something to the dress and she couldn’t have been more helpful either!!! X THANKYOU SERENITY!!!! X and sending yet another hug Chantelle’s way!!! X she’s a star and a credit to your team! X x x x

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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.

What do you love most about your job?

The look on the brides face when she realises she's found the one!

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?

We give a gift bag to every bride that buys a dress with a little organiser bag inside that pins inside the dress. Inside the bag is something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, plus a silver sixpence for her shoe.
