The moment you find your dream wedding dress is one of the most memorable parts of the entire wedding planning process. Often filled with tears of joys, the experience is second-to-none. We caught up with two real brides, Amanda and Shara, who both fell in love with gowns from Benjamin Roberts to find out what happened to them…

“It was so easy to wear, I didn’t want to take it off!”

Name: Amanda Allen
Date of wedding: 8th June
Location: Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire
Dress: Style 2058a
Purchased from: Harvey’s Bridal Boutique


Amanda says:  “I was unsure what sort of wedding dress I would choose and after trying what seemed like hundreds of styles, I started to lose hope. That was until Lesley and Claire selected style 2058A from Benjamin Roberts for me to try on. Before it had been fastened up fully, I just knew it was the one. Oh it is a beautiful dress! It has gorgeous detailing, lace and tulle and the full skirt is so flattering. Not forgetting the train, absolutely stunning! Although there is a lot of material, the dress was so easy to wear; I did not want to take it off.”

“I would, without doubt, recommend Harvey’s Bridal Boutique to all brides looking for fabulous wedding dress shopping experiences and outstanding customer service! Lesley and Claire provided a personal service from start to finish and are genuinely enthusiastic about wedding dresses.”

“They are also honest about what suits you, rather than other bridal boutiques I experienced, saying how beautiful you look in every single dress just to get a sale! There was never any pressure to make a quick decision and no matter what my worries were, Lesley and Claire sorted them out!”

“I would definitely recommend Benjamin Roberts dresses to all brides. The dresses are beautifully designed and amazing quality. They are also great value for money, too. Everyone loved my dress, especially my new husband.”

“Shorter styles were hard to find…”

Name: Shara Mortimer
Date of wedding: 27th May
Location: Rotherham, South Yorkshire
Wedding dress: Style 5353
Purchased from: Gowns UK Leeds


Shara says: “I had thought short from the very beginning, but this was proving a little bit difficult when I began looking in bridal boutiques. Shorter styles are hard to find and don’t seem to be commonly stocked, so when I looked on the Benjamin Roberts website, I was thrilled to see some shorter designs.”

“As with every bride there was one dress that I loved as soon as I saw it and knew it would be the dress for me! I did see others from other designers but none of them were as special as this one.
The task I had was to see this dress and try it on, that’s when Gowns UK came in. They ordered the dress in for me allowing me to try it on, they knew how keen I was to see the dress and so they obtained it as soon as they could.”


“As I had imagined, the dress was perfect and ticked all the boxes. My dress was simply stunning, and made to a very high standard, very good quality and fab attention to detail. Even the staff at Gowns UK were exited about the dress, saying they had never had a dress like this in before!”

“I have been lucky enough to wear my dress twice as we had an evening reception on our return from Mexico. I loved every second of wearing it and have had so many lovely compliments, saying how beautiful and different it was. So thank you, Benjamin Roberts for helping to make my day so very perfect!”
