Very personal you have been to my needs and I am so grateful to you. I would recommend you and your bridal shop to anyone. I thank you from the bottom of my heart xx”
Claire – Bicester

“I cannot recommend these guys enough !! They are the most friendly and helpful bridal shop I’ve been to and I walked out of there yesterday with the most beautiful dress that I never thought I would find. Thank you so much xxxx”
Lilly – Banbury

“Just picked up my beautiful wedding dress from Emma at Village Brides. What a wonderful experience I had deciding on a dress from here. She made me feel so comfortable and special. Far better than the bigger chains that don’t offer that personal touch Village Brides does. Would recommend this place to all brides!”
Katie – Shipston-on-Stour

“Walked into the shop today, and within an hour I walked out very happy and with my perfect wedding dress!! Emma is brilliant and so helpful. Such a nice friendly atmosphere. I will highly recommend village brides to anyone wanting to find their perfect dress! X”
Heidi – Moreton-in-Marsh

“I was recommended to village brides by other people who were already married. Emma was so lovely, kind and patient. My mum and I had the best time yesterday trying on different dresses. But the ones I had picked I was still unsure of. She found out 2 or 3 more and one she picked out I fell in love with straight away and purchased! She made us feel so welcome, having a chat and making us a cup of tea! Thank you for making our experience so lovely and amazing! Xxx”
Amber – Shipston-on-Stour

“My Maid of Honour had recommended this unique shop and service for me. We went together and I was totally blown away by Emma’s warmth and genuine willingness to find the perfect dress for me. The choice of dresses is really wide, to cater for all types of tastes and figures, so I am confident any future bride who visits the shop would walk away with her perfect wedding dress. I am really happy with my choice and highly recommend this place, thank you!”
Marina – Stratford-upon-Avon

“Emma was brilliant. I went in the shop today with my mum and MoH – we got so excited about the range of choice on arrival that we couldn’t stop ourselves picking out lots of dresses before she’d even had a chance to offer us a drink! But she was very patient! She was also EXTREMELY informative and was able to answer any questions we had without pushing her own opinions or being desperate for a sale – she really valued us as customers. I found the perfect dress and it was at a very reasonable price. The shop was a pleasure to be in and I would highly recommend it to anyone :)”
Beth – Banbury

“This was the best experience I could have hoped for. They explained to me who they are and how they operate, went through each step. There was no pressure what’s so ever and both Ramsey and Emma were so lovely. The shop is clean and tidy and very well laid out. They know what they are doing. I went to see one other place after (this was my first shop) and it was pointless. I found the dress and service I wanted at Village Brides.”
Krystyna – Coventry

“I had an excellent experience with Village Brides. I had only tried on dresses in one other place previously, and identified a dress style that seemed to work on me. I wanted to try a few more on, but didn’t want dress-buying to become a confusing and stressful saga, and hoped (but didn’t dare expect) that I would find my dress in one visit to Village Brides. And I did find it! I now have a really beautiful dress that I’m very happy with. When I visited, Village Brides had a good selection of different dresses in my size (10-12) for me to try. I told Emma my maximum budget and she showed me ones that would come within it (and also pointed out which ones definitely wouldn’t). She was relaxed, calm, friendly and professional – I didn’t feel at all stressed at any point, and it was altogether an enjoyable experience. She didn’t impose her own opinion on me, and was very helpful when I needed information/advice about the different dresses. Thank you Emma!”
Nancy – Chipping Norton

“Ramsey and Emma are such wonderful people and they offer brides the most amazing bridal experience. They are truly passionate about their bridal shop and make every bride feel special. Such lovely people xx”
Gemma – Warrington

“Thank you so very much to all at Village Brides of Long Compton. I visited a few bridal shops during my short engagement, and none that compared to yours. What an extremely professional, welcoming, friendly, affordable and personal service you delivered. You catered to our every need and took away nerves on the day when you came to dress myself and 6 bridesmaids. 5 stars! The best bridal shop in the UK.”
Maryanne – London

“Thank you for helping me find the perfect wedding dress, everyone commented on how lovely it looked. My bridesmaid and I had such a fantastic time in your shop and you were both so helpful. I will recommend Village Brides to every bride to be! Thanks again. Stacey x”
Stacey – London

“I received great service from Village Brides right from the start. I had to cancel my original appointment at short notice due to illness. So that I didn’t have to wait too long for another appointment, they opened up for me the following weekend on Mother’s Day even though they had originally intended keeping this day free of appointments (which I gather is rare for them!) I wasn’t sure how much choice there would be in the right size but tried on so many lovely (and different) dresses that the problem was narrowing them down to choose just one! Ramsey and Emma were very friendly and patient, giving me as much time as I needed to try things numerous times and make my mind up. All in all a great experience and highly recommended, thank you both :)”
Emma – Bristol

“I was extremely nervous going to try on dresses this morning as I didn’t know what to expect, but straight away I was made to feel relaxed and welcome, I didn’t feel pressured what so ever and had the best morning trying on some stunning dresses and I found the one! I couldn’t have wished for a better experience! Its an excellent service and so glad they are local. Thank you so much Village Brides :)”
Lucy – Winderton

“Cannot recommend highly enough. Fantastic service from Emma and Ramsey, they opened late for me, really helpful with their advice and didn’t bat an eyelid when I said the wedding was only 7 weeks away! Never felt pressured to buy at any time and I was absolutely delighted with my dress. Thank you xx”
Laura – Stratford-upon-Avon

“I don’t know why a bride would go anywhere but here? The best, friendliest and helpful service you could ever wish for whilst making such an important decision. I can’t thank Emma and Ramsey enough. They really went that extra mile… and a bit further!”
Ella – Aynho

“I couldn’t recommend this beautiful place enough. After ending up in a panic over my original dress not fitting properly just 4 months before my wedding and sending an enquiry to village brides at a very late hour not only did I get an instant reply they also squeezed me in for an appointment first thing this morning. I now have the perfect dress for me and had a wonderful experience. Ramsey and Emma were so friendly and understanding they gave 5* customer service going out of their way to help me I don’t think it’s possible to find anywhere better than here”
Teresa – Kineton

“The best wedding dress boutique I have been too. Lovely welcome and amazing, friendly and helpful service. Would definitely recommend Village Brides to any bride :)”
Beckie – Bidford-on-Avon

“The most friendly and helpful dress shop experience, Emma was so patient with me, such a huge variety of dresses to try on and excellent prices. I found my perfect dress and would recommend this shop to everyone”
Kirsty – Coventry

“I would recommend Village Brides to everyone. Fantastic, friendly and helpful service. Really personal and nothing could be too much trouble! Thank you so much for my beautiful dress!”
Chloe – Chipping Norton

“Emma and Ramsey were so helpful and lovely to deal with and made my experience of purchasing a dress really enjoyable. They were attentive and always happy to help – which was so much better than I experienced at other shops. Their wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses are beautiful and I purchased both from them! Thank you for all of your help – you run a fantastic business!!”
Michelle – Nottingham

“I would recommend Village Brides to anyone. Their concept is really unique and gives you a chance to see a real varied range of dresses. I went with an open mind after becoming a little unhopeful but really enjoyed the whole experience here. I’ve bought my dress from them and after some flapping and panicking Emma and Ramsey were really kind and understanding in helping me which is what you need most when you’re planning a wedding. Also, the prices of their dresses cannot be faulted. Thank you!”
Adele – London

“The most lovely shop and lovely people. I am so glad that I got my dress from here! Thank you so much to the both of you.”
Kirsty – East Sussex

“Well, I don’t know where to begin. I wanted a place I could return to, again and again (if needed) to find my dress, somewhere relaxed and with the customer at their heart where I might find something a little more unique, ideally putting my money into a small business. Not only did Village Brides tick *all* of these boxes, but it is also in the most stunning location and has grown from a wonderful unique back story – this couldn’t have been a more perfect experience, even more than I’d ever imagined.
So quick to reply to my many messages, incredibly personable, very knowledgeable, open and honest. The most accommodating and relaxing wedding dress shopping experience I’ve ever had – this coming from a nervous bride, shy of ‘all eyes on me’ situations. Both Emma and Ramsey gave such insightful guidance and sound advice without being in the least bit pushy or overbearing. I didn’t feel like just another bride, everything I (and those with me) did/said (which they must have experienced a million times over), felt as though it was the first time they’d encountered it – genuine, kind and caring people, you are wholly deserving of your most recent industry award – BEST IN THE WORLD!
I just wish every business were the same. Please, if you are looking for somewhere to find your dress, Village Brides is all you will need – their stock changes frequently, always a one off more unique find, masses of choice. My only disappointment is that Ramsey doesn’t have more businesses in other industries – the world benefits from business professionals like he and Emma”
Sian – Rugby

“A huge thank you to both Emma and Ramsey. A truly beautiful shop with a welcoming atmosphere and so many gorgeous dresses I could have picked half a dozen! A wonderful experience topped off by coming away with “The One”! Thank you!! xx”
Caroline – Broadwell

“Fantastic shop with wonderful staff & beautiful dresses! I went just to have a look on a day that suited me and Emma came in specially to see me and I found the most perfect dress! Emma was so lovely, made my mum & I feel so welcome and comfortable and not pressured at all. I had so many lovely compliments about my dress, as did my bridesmaids, whose dresses we also bought from Village Brides. We all felt amazing in our beautiful dresses. Thank you so much for helping me find the dress of my dreams xx”
Nikki – Chipping Norton

“I was nervous about wedding dress shopping however Emma and Ramsey made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. The dresses are beautiful and Emma was so knowledgeable with fantastic ideas and suggestions. I am so pleased that I found “THE” dress with them and cannot wait to wear it! Thank you again xxx”
Claire – Swalcliffe

“Can’t believe this was the first shop I went to and found ‘the one’! I ended up going back after visiting a couple more shops but nothing else compared. Brilliant advice, friendly service. Emma made me feel completely at ease and like nothing was too much trouble. Great service, I came away with free wedding insurance and knowing some of the dress money went to charity. WIN WIN. I would definitely recommend! Thanks guys. X”
Danielle – Oxford

“The perfect place to choose your wedding dress! Emma and Ramsey make you feel important/special/at ease/not rushed/free to have your own opinion – all the positive things a bride should feel when trying on dresses for that big day. I couldn’t recommend Village Brides more, a fantastic local service!”
Catherine – Shipston-on-Stour

“I cannot recommend Ramsey and Emma’s service enough. After me being very specific about a particular dress I had tried on elsewhere and not been able to get, they went above and beyond to find my dream dress. If feels like a dream to actually finally have the dress I’ve been looking at constantly.
Cannot wait to marry the man of my dreams in the Caribbean sunshine in June. I will certainly send you a photo after we have said “I do”. Thank you so so so so so much for your help and for being the most relaxed and helpful bridal shop I’ve ever been in. I will be recommending my friends to you.”
Kate – Aylesbury

“So pleased with my dress, a massive thank you to Ramsey and Emma for making it such an enjoyable experience. So accommodating towards my 6 month baby as well. 5 stars !!! Would recommend to any bride ! Xxx”
June – Chipping Norton

“As soon as I walked in I could feel the friendly and relaxing atmosphere of Village Brides. A massive credit and thanks to Emma who helped and assisted me in finding my perfect dress. Another big positive about Village Brides is you are not rushed in any way and appointments are a good length of time (unlike some places I had been to prior). The shop has a great range of gorgeous dresses and many other great accessories which you can try with the dresses. I would definitely recommend all brides to be to visit here in the hunt for ‘the’ perfect dress. One very happy bride xx”
Claire – Bloxham

“For me, it was Emma’s fab feedback and advice on the dresses I tried on that set this bridal experience apart from any other – it was such a relaxed fun atmosphere as well, definitely a 5* experience, thank you Emma x (and it doesn’t hurt that I found ‘the dress’ in there either!)”
Katie – Ducklington

“WOW WOW WOW!!!
The first shop I tried, and the last!
This shop and both Emma and Ramsey are AMAZING.
They made the whole experience, calm, relaxed and comfortable.
No pushy sale business, no forcing of dresses that I didn’t want to try.
The shop, the people, the dresses are top notch.
All dresses in amazing condition, in a range of sizes, fabulous selection of styles and also great range of tiaras, shoes, veils and jackets/shrugs.
I cannot rave about this place enough.
It’s my fairy tale ending.
Can’t wait to show you both the pictures of my day.
THANK YOU”
Francesca – Bicester
