Talkback: You & Your Wedding 2015 Bridal Retail Awards shortlist!

Madeline Isaac-James is my favourite. Wonderful personal service. The bride is their focus - they are understanding and empathetic to all that is potentially challenging to the bride and do everything they can to make their part in the wedding an enjoyable one.
The dresses are wonderful. Materials used are excellent, real value for money when compared like for like.
I have recommended many brides to Madeline Isaac-James gowns and their lovely shop in Farnham. Without exception all the brides have been delighted.
Let's give recognition and credit to hardwork, original design and customer service with no insider connections. An award for Madeline Isaac-James is merited.


  • I went to Miss Bush Bridalwear after my sister found her dream dress there. I tried to go elsewhere so as to not copy my sister, but nowhere came close to the welcoming atmosphere at Miss Bush. The service was fantastic and I had so much fun trying on different styles. My cheeks would always ache by the time I left Miss Bush. Emma has a wealth of experience and her honesty gives you huge confidence in your dress choice. The whole team were always so willing to help and make suggestions to ease the stress towards the big day. Nothing is ever too much trouble at Miss Bush. Charming staff, beautiful collection of dresses from amazing designers and a fun yet calming atmosphere. Each dress is immaculate, yet I was never made to feel worried or uncomfortable about stepping into the dresses. I cannot thank them enough for helping me to find my dream dress. I have highly recommended them to several friends and I hope that their hard work is recognised with such a prestigious award.

    Occasions by Uno boutique is just amazing. I went there as a clueless mother of the bride, with no idea at all of what I wanted to wear for my daughter's wedding. The staff there are so patient, helping me to try on as many outfits as I wanted, and giving some helpful suggestions. I ended up buying not only the outfit for my daughter's wedding, a beautiful Zeila dress, but an outfit to wear for my son't wedding which isn't till next year! Then when I bought my shoes from elsewhere in a sale, they were so helpful in picking out the right shade to have them dyed to make a perfect match.
    Thank you all for making me proud to be on the wedding photos, instead of wanting to hide away!
  • Occasions by Uno Boutique in Ivybridge, from start to finish they made my shopping for an outfit for my daughters wedding a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely helpful and very patient, I tried on lots of outfits and decided on a Condici dress with jacket !! I felt wonderful in my outfit and bought shoes also which were dyed to match my outfit. I would recommend Occasions in a flash - thank you.
  • Mao Couture!! Love this place, the designer is amazing. She has made bridesmaid dresses for us and te most gorgeous one off gowns for my daughter. The service she gives is brilliant and her designs are so striking!

    Good luck Anh, well deserved nomination x
  • Occasions by Uno Boutique the complete package dress shoes handbag and hatinator. All done in one shopping trip.Kevin and his staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Everyone was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They matched my shoes and bag perfectly to my outfit for my sons wedding. I was recommended to them by a friend and l wouldn't hesitate to do the same.
  • Occasions by Uno boutique provide the most amazing shopping experience for mother of the bride or mother of the groom or special wedding guests in general. Kevin provides a wonderful attentive personal service - he knows exactly what suits and has a real eye for detail. Nothing is too much trouble. I had the pleasure of going in first as mum of the groom and Kevin spent so much time with me selecting the perfect outfit. I was very happy to return less than a year later as mum of the bride to repeat the experience. To be able to purchase my outfit, hat, shoes and bag all under one roof was simply fantastic. No trudging around every shop in town - such a bonus. I would wholeheartedly recommend Occasions by Uno. I had so many compliments about my outfits which made me feel very special and Kevin needs to take the credit for this. He certainly deserves an award for the exceptional service that he provides.

    Black Tie were incredible for our wedding. From start to finish their knowledge and experience helped me and my ushers don some of the most stylish suits. Customer service was second to none; no pushy sales just listened to everything we needed. Every suit fit perfectly and never had to worry about anything regarding the wedding attire. I even got the option to have a custom made cravat to fit with our purple theme. I cannot recommend Black Tie enough, just THE place to go when I need formal wear.
  • Black Tie are a fabulous independent provider of top quality menswear. As far back as 2003, Chris and Graeme ensured that my best man, ushers and I were fitted out with kit that met with the bride's expectations whilst ensuring that we all felt comfortable as well as special for my big day!
    Of course, I don't intend to marry again. But if I did, I wouldn't look any further than Black Tie for my outfit.
