We are delighted to share with you just a few comments from our lovely brides, thank you all!
From the moment I booked an appointment at Queen Bee Bridal, Kate went above and beyond. It was the first place I visited and I was so impressed when I arrived. The location is lovely and the barn is simply stunning. I arrived with very little idea what type of dress I wanted and Kate was very patient and informative. I tried on a lot of dresses as there was SO much choice and it was so helpful that Kate knew so much about each dress. Not only was I treated wonderfully when I visited, my family were made to feel so welcome too, making the whole experience extra special and we had many laughs. I felt many emotions whilst picking my dress and Kate supported me through every one (even putting the fan on for me when I finally said yes!!) I am so happy with my dress and I cannot speak highly enough of Queen Bee Bridal; the Barn itself, Kate and all the amazing dresses and accessories inside.
Every bride should visit!
Queen Bee Bridal is full of timeless elegance, we were blown away by the sheer beauty of the boutique. The dresses are plentiful; I was overwhelmed with the amount of beautiful choices. Kate made me & my guests feel so special & let me try on as many dresses as I required. I found my absolute dream dress, its more perfect than I could have imagined!! It is a day we will remember forever…. A brilliant start to our wedding journey. I will never stop recommending Queen Bee Bridal- if you are a bride to be, you need to visit!! Thank you so so so much Kate xx
I couldn’t recommend Queen Bee Bridal enough. Kate was amazing. It was the first bridal shop I had been too and I was not expecting to find ‘the one’ but I did!! Queen Bee Bridal is in a beautiful location and what Kate has done with the place is stunning. There was so many dresses to choose from and I tried on so many dresses. Kate made me, my mum and sister feel totally at ease and we had such a fun experience. I’ve been telling all the brides I’ve met to go to Queen Bee Bridal. Thank you so much Kate!
What a fantastic experience at Queen Bee Bridal from start to finish. The warmest of welcomes from the lovely Kate, who put me at ease immediately with her wonderful stories and great sense of humour. It’s an absolutely stunning rural setting, with a gorgeous and varied selection of dresses and accessories. I had plenty of time to consider all options and was given the right amount of guidance and help every step of the way. I arrived with no expectations and had no clue as to what I wanted but ended up walking away with my ideal dress! I cannot recommend Queen Bee Bridal enough; people should travel far and wide to visit this exceptional place.
Highly recommend! Queen Bee bridal is located in a beautifully secluded part of the countryside, and the interior design of the shop matches the beauty of the surroundings. It is a gorgeous building that has been designed and decorated in a very luxurious style, with plenty of space and natural light to fully get the most out of trying on dresses. Unsurprisingly, the quality and design of the dresses this store has to offer are just as gorgeous as the store they are sold in. When I purchased my dress from Queen Bee, I was looking at her end of line sale range, and was worried about how many I’d have to choose from in the style I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised by the quantity and range that was on offer and ended up trying on nearly 10-12 dresses. On top of all this the customer service was exceptional, all the personal touches and help offered, I really felt Kate cared about me finding the perfect dress. The cherry on top, is that she donates £10 of all sales to the Bumblebee Conservation trust, which I think is such a lovely touch for a worthwhile cause.
Kate was the most fantastic consultant I could ever ask for. Having got myself in a muddle over another boutique’s (new) dress Kate went ABOVE AND BEYOND for me! She was so comforting and made myself and my guests feel so relaxed so we could really enjoy the experience after a stressful day! I found the perfect dress with Queen Bee bridal because of her positivity and knowledge!
Thank you so much Kate, I really cannot say it enough!!!! I cannot wait for a friend to get engaged next so we can rush straight back over to you!!
This is a very special shop. Kate makes the whole experience of choosing your wedding dress enjoyable and personalised. She made me feel welcome, at ease, confident, and…like a queen really! Kate has fantastic style and was always on hand with advice, accessories and suggestions to make my dress work for me. The dress I chose was actually one Kate suggested, based on how I felt about the other dresses I tried on. Already looking forward to going back to Queen Bee Bridal for the final accessories before my wedding day.
We could not have had a better experience shopping for my wedding dress! Kate explained the process really clearly and was super helpful for the whole of the appointment – I could try on as many dresses as I wanted and go back to them as many times as I needed. We never felt rushed into making a decision or anything and I felt like I was making a really well-informed decision. It’s such a cosy, welcoming atmosphere at Queen Bee that you really do feel comfortable. So many bridal shops can feel a little impersonal and this was quite the opposite – to be able to try on dresses in a cozy little boutique in the gorgeous countryside was an experience I won’t forget! The choice of dresses is fabulous and I was able to find my dream dress. I would gladly recommend Kate and Queen Bee to any bride looking for their perfect dress.
Queen Bee was by far the best experience I had looking for my wedding dress – Kate’s non-pushy and helpful approach was an absolute breath of fresh air compared to other shops I had been to. Her extensive knowledge and guidance when it came to different styles, different fits and advice on alterations etc was super helpful. She was also really mindful of my budget and did not try to upsell in any way. She has such a lovely and varied choice of dresses available.
I would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a great experience and find their perfect dress!
The Queen Bee Bridal boutique is absolutely beautiful! And Kate was absolutely fantastic when I had my appointment – so friendly & I felt completely comfortable the whole time I was there. The appointment was relaxed & never rushed – I was able to try on as many dresses as I wanted to. And Kate set up a Zoom call with my sister so that she was able to be part of the day. Can’t recommend Kate & the boutique enough!!
I rarely leave reviews but I just had the best time at Queen Bee. Kate immediately put me at ease and was relaxed and helpful throughout. You can tell she has a genuine love for what she does! She was incredibly patient, listened carefully to my budget and helped guide me through the different options but I never felt I was being sold to or pressured into buying which I was so grateful for. As an added bonus the boutique is beautiful… I could not recommend highly enough!
Yes to the Dress! Kate was excellent at communicating with me right from my initial email. When I arrived at Queen Bee, I was blown away! The shop is gorgeous, spacious, intimate and full of choice. Kate was very knowledgeable and patient with me until after 3 hours… I said yes ! 5* service and a beautiful selection of dresses for all tastes and requests! I would highly recommend Queen Bee
Can’t recommend this place enough! I wasn’t looking forward to dress shopping but Kate made the day extremely enjoyable and relaxed. Kate was very patient and personable offering advice when needed and also gave us plenty of time and space to make decisions. I picked out and tried on many dresses from a great selection and using this Kate also picked out a couple – including the one I left with! The shop itself is stunning and the perfect setting.
This was my first time wedding dress shopping and I absolutely loved it, Katie made myself and my dad feel so welcome when we first arrived. The shop itself is beautiful and lovely set out. I really enjoyed trying on the selection of dress queen bee held in the shop and I was lucky to walk away with my dream dress. Not only did I enjoy my time here but my dad did as well, I think he was having alot of fun picking out different accessories and veils the shop had as well.
I’d definitely recommend future Brides to go find the dress with Katie, she was such a lovely host and a really nice shop. x
I had a brilliant experience with Kate at Queen Bee Bridal and came away with the perfect dress. Kate was very warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. She has an amazing selection of dresses and encouraged me to try lots of different styles. She gave me plenty of time to make my final decision when I was torn between a couple of dresses. It is also great to see how Kate is taking steps to ensure Queen Bee is a responsible business from a sustainability perspective. I would definitely recommend a visit for any future brides.
Kate made my experience a fantastic one. She takes the time to listen to your thoughts, she want to know how the dresses that she refers to as ‘she’ makes you feel. She’s incredibly friendly, warm and made it even better than I imagined. Thank you so much Kate
After an experience earlier in the day at a different boutique which left me feeling a little underwhelmed and frankly upset, Kate at Queen Bee Bridal was able to turn my day and whole wedding dress shopping experience completely around! She made me feel so comfortable, welcomed and emphasised the excitement on what should be a huge day for any bride! I found my perfect dress with Kate, though I almost wish I hadn’t just so I could go and experience it all again! I also got my accessories and shoes, which were all extremely reasonably priced and I left an extremely happy bride to be! Thank you Kate!!
I just had to leave a review as I had such a wonderful time at Queen Bee Bridal! Kate was just so welcoming and made me feel at ease. The boutique is gorgeous and in such a beautiful setting. Having the place to ourselves made the experience extra special and allowed us to relax. Kate was so knowledgable and helped me find the perfect dress despite my indecisiveness!
Highly recommend to all brides looking for a personal, relaxed and special experience.
Had such a lovely time at Queen Bee. This was the first shop I visited and found my dress! The shop itself is set out beautifully in an old barn, you feel right at home. Kate really knows her stuff and was beyond helpful, she took so much time talking through my options and explained everything in such detail. Could not recommended Queen Bee more.
The experience and service at Queen Bee Bridal is as good as you can get. Plenty of choice, beautiful surroundings and interior and to top it off, a quality cup of tea! Kate is the cherry on top. She is patient, understanding and has THE best ideas on how to improve the already stunning dresses. She makes you feel at ease instantly and allows you to take your time and change your mind if you need to. She understood the assignment 😉 Thank you again Kate for helping me find ‘the one’ (sparkles and all)! xxx
Absolutley wonderful, Kate was lovely right from the start, welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. she helped my daughter relax straight away and actually enjoy the whole experience. My daughter found the perfect dress and looks beautiful in it. Thank you again so much Kate .
Kate at Queen Bee is absolutely amazing. I was booked in for a sale appointment as I was shopping on a budget but in no way did Kate make my experience feel any less and she told me if there were other dresses I could of course try them!
The boutique and location is beautiful and I felt so special just by being there, I am so happy I became a Queen Bee Bride x
Kate was amazing, she helped me to find my perfect dress. Kate was so knowledgeable and showed me things I would never of thought of. I highly recommended Queen Bee Bridal it is a beautiful shop in a beautiful village. It was a truly magical experience thank you so much Kate.
I had an absolutely wonderful time at queen bee bridal, it was my first time wedding dress shopping so I was a little nervous and thought I’d feel insecure trying on dresses, but Kate made me feel the complete opposite. Set in a lovely rural location the boutique is absolutely stunning, and there is such a fabulous choice of dresses it far exceeded my expectations on that front. I tried many different dresses on and Kate was patient, knowledgeable and to be honest made me feel really special, you can tell she really cares. It was tough because all the dresses were beautiful, but I kept being drawn to “the one” and after discussing what tweaks could be made to make it “perfect”, I said yes to the dress. I walked out on such a high and it also feels good to be supporting a local business and shopping ethically. I 100% would recommend queen bee bridal to anyone.
I had a fantastic experience at Queen Bee Bridal. The boutique was beautiful – with a rustic feel but very light and spacious. Kate was amazing – so helpful and knowledgeable. She really listened to what you liked and disliked about each dress, gave really good advice and genuinely wanted to help you find your perfect dress. As this was my first visit to a bridal shop, the 2 hour time slot was definitely needed and even though we went over the 2 hours, we didn’t feel rushed at all. I found my wedding dress and couldn’t be happier with it and I would highly recommend Queen Bee Bridal.
I had the most wonderful experience at Queen Bee Bridal. I was made to feel so comfortable during my appointment. The store is so beautiful with a large selection of dresses which are all stunning. I found my dream dress and I would recommend any bride to visit Queen Bee Bridal! Thank you so much Kate for an amazing experience.
I was really nervous about wedding dress shopping (not really a girly girl) but Kate made me feel totally at ease. Her stunning shop and friendly nature just created the perfect atmosphere for trying on a wedding dress for the first time. I couldn’t recommend her more.
I found ‘the’ dress with Kate in November 2021 and took it for its first outing to my seamstress (aka family member) yesterday – having barely looked at it in all those months I was reminded of a. what a beautiful dress i was able to find and b. what a beautiful experience I had.
Kate has curated not just a bridal shop but a bridal experience – the location, the chats, just everything. Me and my mum and future MIL all enjoyed the experience from start to finish. We were not rushed, I tried on a million dresses (some several times!!) and Kate had a million ideas to make them unique to you. We just had an all round lovely afternoon. Absolutely stamped on my experiences in two other shops – if you are looking for your dress, please do yourself a favour and go straight here!
Kate made me and my guests feel completely at ease for our appointment. Queen Bee Bridal is a beautiful boutique where the downstairs has space for guests to sit, brides to get changed, and a lovely selection of shoes and veils. The upstairs is dedicated to a large carefully selected range of preloved dresses in a range of sizes, and two made to order lines. Kate lets you try as many dresses as you like and is impartial (but supportive) throughout the appointment. When I came back to pick up my dress, I also chose a beautiful veil from her collection. Would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting a beautiful wedding dress and lovely experience.
