Myself and my partner Laura came to see Claire in the spring of this year . We only had very basic details of what we wanted . Claire helped us develop ideas, change things round and throw the rule book out the window. We will never be able to thank her enough for what she has both made for us and done for us . She is totally amazing and outstandingly talented in her work . We highly recommend her and are said now as we have no more reasons to visit lol. Thank you Claire for everything our outfits bring tears of happiness to us both xxxxx

Claire has been nothing but attentive, enthusiastic and helpful throughout the process of making my friend’s wedding dress and my bridesmaid’s dress. She is always considerate and suggestive of ideas with the client’s best interests in mind. I am amazed by her beautiful creations and cannot wait until my friend’s big day to showcase them.

Claire is amazing and very talented. The dresses she has made look fabulous and are so comfortable. I can’t wait to wear mine on the big day!  :)

Claire made my wedding dress for my wedding at the beginning of June. She was so calm throughout the fittings when I had a change of heart, really helpful with tips and suggestions and very flexible. She was a pleasure to work with and I thoroughly recommend her.

Truly truly brilliant!! Such a patience and lovely lady to work with to make the wedding dress of my dreams, and my little flower girls to match. Highly recommended, she is brilliant!

Collected my dress yesterday after 9 months of planning and Claire has been nothing but amazing! We designed a bespoke dress for me and she was fantastic with her ideas and recommendations and couldn’t do enough for me, suggesting fabrics and styles. I became slightly Bridezilla over the last few weeks and wanted some last minute alterations and she didn’t bat an eyelid, just cracked on with it and massively delivered! I now cannot wait to wear my dress in 3 weeks time and cannot recommend Claire enough for all her hard work and she’s the loveliest person – so happy, Thankyou again ❤️ xxx

“Hi Claire, I just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely work you did with my dress. Everyone absolutely loved what you did with it and so did I. Thank you so much.”



The new Mrs Clayton







I just wanted to say a massive thank you to both Claire and Kathryn in helping me find an absolutely perfect dress under very difficult circumstances.  I had ordered a few dress online and thought they would be ok for my Wedding.  

When they arrived a week before my wedding I went into Panic mode!!  Thankfully Kathryn and Claire were on hand to put me at ease and find me a dress which I loved which I thought would be impossible!!  

I was getting married in New York and wanted something a little less formal/ traditional.  When I arrived they were both so helpful and came up with ideas when we had limited choices.  

I was most impressed by Claire’s ability to completely transform a dress into my perfect dress within 24 hours.  It was exactly how I wanted it.  They were so flexible and efficient and the dress looked totally amazing when it had been finished.  

I originally was going to have a much simpler dress but I am so pleased I went to Dream Weddings to get my dress I absolutely love the dress and it made me feel really special on our big day.

I cannot recommend Truly Bridal enough. Not only did Claire provide me with a professional, friendly, good value service, she also made me feel comfortable and put the ‘special’ into each and every appointment. I felt as if I was a very special bride and not just ‘another’ bride, which is what some bridal boutiques can make you feel like.

Claire created two beautiful bridesmaid dresses for my wedding in very difficult circumstances. Neither of my bridesmaids lived near Nottingham and therefore Claire created their dresses from measurements and both girls only had two appointments each. Even with the obstacles in her way, Claire remained calm and friendly and wasn’t fazed by the situation at all.

I also had an issue with my wedding dress as a previous dressmaker had tried altering it but couldn’t quite manage to. I dropped in on Claire at the last minute and despite my panicking she was able to rectify the mistakes, creating a wedding dress better than I could ever have imagined!

I cannot thank Claire enough for all her help, support and professional opinion. She is absolutely amazing and if you use her for your wedding I can assure you that you will not be disappointed and she will make you feel like a million dollars!

Thank you so so much, my beautiful dress and veil designer, Tailor, and most importantly my friend.
A little girl at the wedding asked her mum if “She could go and speak to THE PRINCESS! ”
I was is tears, you created exactly what I wanted, I was an extremely happy, shiny, sparkly fairy princess for my special day, I loved my dress and veil and you were amazing running around on the morning and getting me dressed.
You Claire Taylor, are AwesomeNess personified.
