Getting my wedding dress from Rachel Scott was such a great experience and felt really special. Rachel has a beautiful array of dresses and her shop always feels like such a magical place to be. Rachel and her colleague Stephanie were always so helpful, both over email and in person, and really lovely to deal with. And Lisa, the seamstress, was excellent and so patient! I never felt rushed or pressurised into anything, and couldn't be more thrilled with the beautiful dress I picked to wear on my wedding day and the gorgeous veil I wore with it. Thank you so much for everything!!

Incredible service and support from both Rachel & Stephanie from day one. I was feeling very anxious about wedding dress shopping and knew I wanted to loose a significant amount of weight and also knew I wanted a bespoke dress and veil from the offset and thanks to this amazing team I was able to create my dream wedding dress and veil. Rachel made me feel so comfortable from that first conversation and the reassurance and support made the whole experience incredible in a way I could never have imagined. An absolute dream to work with. Every bride needs Rachel and Stephanie in their lives!

After having appointments with a few bridal shops and where I'd left feeling really body conscious and overwhelmed; Rachel’s place was just so warm, fun and encouraging! Her range of dresses are PHENOMENAL too. Rachel, Stephanie and Lisa were so friendly and fitting appointments were always a great laugh! Will be recommending to anyone who is wedding dress shopping.

Unlike a lot of brides, I was actually dreading wedding dress shopping. I never had a dream dress in mind and thought the whole process would be utterly overwhelming. However as soon as my Mum found and I then met and talked to Rachel online (during lockdown in 2020!) I immediately knew I was going to be in safe hands. It turned out to be an amazing life experience and one that I will never forget - for a whole host of good reasons! At the outset I had my heart set on a fun ostrich feather overskirt by Kate Halfpenny and on Rachel’s recommendation it was then working with Andrea Hawkes and team to create a base dress under it. We tried one dress design option but something just didn’t feel quite right. At one appointment I left feeling a bit deflated but Rachel got me back into the shop within 24 hours and the penny dropped that designing something bespoke based around some of the dresses I wore was the way to go. What I had wanted was actually in my own mind and it didn’t exist but I knew in my heart what suited me and what I would feel comfortable in. Rachel was soon out with scissors to help create my vision - all it took was a couple of tweaks to necklines and her working with Andrea and team, who also then created a gorgeous silk over jacket which I could take off at night. Rachel and team ended up creating my dream dress that I didn’t even know existed - all the smiles in our wedding pictures show how relaxed and at ease I was with myself - and I also felt amazing - all down to the dress I was wearing. As an independent, Rachel also works with the best designers in the wedding industry who create the most amazing pieces with luxurious fabrics. I can’t really explain it but Rachel just got it and was an absolute dream to work with. Always responsive, calm, reassuring and so so kind with her time - I felt like I was creating something really special with a friend. The shop is just magical and full of amazing dresses. I will actually miss my appointments and can’t ever believe I started my wedding dress journey full of dread!! Thanks to Rachel and team, for creating such a beautiful dress that allowed me to be me X
