“I really had nothing in particular in mind when I started by search for ‘the dress’. After a morning of trying on many beautiful dresses at Rachel’s I finally slipped into this one. I could see right away that it was special and a real ‘I’ve arrived’ dress. I’d found it!

I loved the whole process with Helen, who was super, super efficient, friendly and really made sure that I was happy with the fit and finish of the dress throughout our fittings. A truly personal experience. I was thrilled to finally put my finished dress on, it fit like a glove, the details were perfect and it was so comfortable. In the best way possible, I didn’t think about my dress all day.

I feel like the photos don’t do it justice as they cannot truly capture how this dress made me feel, I loved it.”

Hilary chose her dress from the Rachel Burgess Bridal Boutique, Penarth.
