"Hi Nikki. Well I can't believe a week has gone by since my wedding to David. The day was magical, all except for the weather - it rained - but hey what can you expect in early March! The wedding dress I chose was pale blue with a fine organza over dress. As I was one of your "older" brides I didn't want ivory or white and this colour was absolutely perfect and I had some wonderful comments from family and friends - it made me feel a million dollars. Thank you so much for your time, your patience and the great chats we had during the fittings. I cannot recommend Fairytale Occasions enough - thank you. I wish you all the luck in the future and for any other brides out there - do go along to Nikki's shop in Highworth. She is the best."
"I had a lot of trouble finding my perfect wedding dress. I visited a total of 6 shops and was getting rather fed up by the time I got to Fairytale Occasions! However, visiting Nikki was definitely the best decision I made!! Nikki managed to take my favourite dress and create my dream dress from it - no small feat I might add! From one long dress, Nikki created a short dress with a long skirt I could wear over the top, giving me a truly unique dress that I love. I can't recommend her enough! :)"
"What can I say! Outstanding service and I truly felt like a Goddess lol in my amazing wedding dress when we got married on 7th July 2017. My husband nearly cried and was so emotional when he saw me ☺️ We are honeymooning in Las Vegas on Monday with an Elvis Blessing and I cannot wait to wear my stunning wedding dress again a week on Friday x"
"Nikki made my dream wedding dress. It was perfect and I felt a million dollars. I had come to Nikki with a very clear idea of what I wanted and she truly transferred my design into my perfect dress. Thank you so much Nikki. x X x"
