Can not thank Joanna enough for a lovely shopping experience today, we came as a large group but nothing was too much trouble and later returned with just two of us for a glass of fizz to make the decision. The range of dresses was great and Joannas expertise as a dressmaker made all the difference. 100% recommend and now really looking forward to my alterations and going back! Thank you so much x

Joana altered my dress perfectly and my and daughter and I visited yesterday for my final fitting and received such a lovely warm welcome. Joana spent the time showing my daughter how to help me in my dress and was so lovely and friendly, cant recommend enough 😍

Not only is Joana the most delightful woman you could ever meet, her technical dress making and alteration skills are incredible - she knows absolutely everything there is to know about fit, fabric and how your dress should look to flatter. She can literally work wonders!! The boutique has a beautiful selection... of wedding dresses, but you don't feel overwhelmed by endless rails of stock - it really feels like each one is carefully selected by her. If you are looking for a more intimate personal wedding dress shopping experience I highly recommend an appointment with Joana. We loved every single visit to her beautiful boutique, it's got such a relaxing and special vibe - Joana makes you feel confident and has a lovely way about her. We will miss our visits to see her a lot as she played a big part in the run up to both our weddings.

Joana is such a lovely lady who makes you feel like a princess from the word go.
Joana helped me find my dream dress and it wasn't the dress I imagined it would be.
I only needed 3 dress fittings for her to make my dress fit me perfectly and then a 4th just so she could show my 2 bridesmaids how to fit me into my dress. ... Joana opened up especially when she was on holiday for me to collect my dress.
I definitely felt like a princess on my big day and loved every second of wearing my perfect princess dress, I didn't want to take it off!
Thanks you Joana xx

I cannot thank Joana enough for the beautiful job she did on my dress. She had 1 week to do all the alterations and made the whole process completely stress free and enjoyable. The end result was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend trusting Joana with your wedding dress! Thanks!! Rach xx (I’ll send you photos soon!!!

Rachel Turner

I would definitely recommend getting any dress alterations done by Joana this is a lady who knows exactly what she is doing and has so much love and passion for it! She was absolutely amazing with altering my wedding dress, my dress was nearly 3 sizes too big for me and very long (as I’m so short) I had been told by so many others that it wasn’t possible to take that much off! and Joana reassured me that is was possible. thank you so much you always went above and beyond for me I felt amazing.

You have made my dress even more perfect.... I can’t wait to wear it on Tuesday. Thank you so much for all your work on my dress, my mums and 3 bridesmaids, you are one super talented lady, and I would recomend you to everyone xxxx

Beth Dunning-Smith

I would recommend Joana to anyone! She is so warm and friendly and is an amazing seamstress. I wanted a non-traditional dress and she helped me to choose a dress while advising the alterations that would be possible to make the dress of my dreams. The finished dress was almost unrecognizable from the dress I bought and it took my breath away. I felt special throughout the process and am glad to be going back to her as a bridesmaid for my friend!!

Laura Littler

I was recommended Joana after buying my dress and wanting sleeves added to it. I wasnt sure if she would be able to find fabric to match my dress but she did! The dress looked amazing and you couldn't even tell the sleeves were added later the fabric was almost identical and I can't believe how amazing it looked! Joana was so lovely and friendly and her work is amazing. I can't thank her enough for making my dress perfect for me.

Emily Donaldson


I came across Joana having searched for a local business that would be able to offer alterations for a wedding dress that had been bought elsewhere in the UK. She was fantastic throughout the entire consultation process and the subsequent alterations my dress needed. My dress looked amazing on the day. And having been in her shop I wish I’d gone in and taken a look at the gorgeous range she has there when initially looking for a wedding dress! I would highly recommend!

Laura Pattinson


So impressed. I thought my dress fit me fine and just needed taking up at the bottom, but Joana instantly saw about 6 different areas to make alterations. Went back a few weeks later and it fit like a glove, I felt a million dollars on my wedding day! Lovely lady, lovely shop, lovely atmosphere, great value for money. Would definitely recommend. I wish I could take all my clothes to her!

Claire Gentle

Joana is an absolute star, and one of the loveliest lady's I have had the pleasure to meet. Her work on my dress is perfect. She goes out of her way to make sure every detail is just right.

I would highly recommend Joana for any bride who needs alterations or a wedding dress, she as some stunning gowns.

I had an amazing day and it would not have happened if Joana had not gone out of her way to help me. Thankyou so much, I appreciate all you did for me. Xx

Allana Wigley

Joana made the alterations to my wedding dress which then fitted perfectly! The dress was complex as it had lots of details on the fabric but the alterations were invisible. Joana is not only highly professional but a beautiful person, very caring and always going the extra mile - a real pleasure to deal with. She takes pride on her work and she is a perfectionist. I highly recommend Joana to any bride who wants to make an impression on her wedding day :

I met Joana for the first time today to discuss the alteration of my wedding dress, after being told by another seamstress my dress was far too big to alter, Joana reassured me that she could easily carry out the alterations. I will be recommending Joana to my friends that are getting married, she was extremely professional, friendly and reassuring and also has a great selection of gorgeous accessories!

Laura Bothamley

I was a bit worried at first when my bridal shop said they couldn't do my alterations anymore and they referred me to Joana. I had no need to be worried because Joana was fantastic and I felt AMAZING in my wedding dress. From my first initial message on Facebook she has be really helpful and when I had my first fitting I knew she would be FANTASTIC and was very experienced. She even came to my bridal shop to conduct my fittings which was a big help and I would definitely be recommending her to any one xx

Sarah Binnersley

Joana Bridal is the best Bridal shop in the UK.

Joana made me look like a queen. She made my dress go from a nice dress to perfect. It fit like a glove and looked amazing. She is the best seamstress there is.

Jessica Harrison


After being recommended Joana by a few people I have taken my dress to be altered by her and have every confidence it will be perfect ,
Such a lovely lady who is very accommodating to what I was wanting and what could be done, can wait for my final fitting to see the end result.

I took my wedding dress to Joana to be altered and it now fits perfectly! She is such a lovely person and has done an amazing job and would highly recommend her to anyone who is needing alterations! Thank you x

Charlotte Manning


The alterations Joana did were absolutely brilliant. The dress was mostly made of patterned lace but you couldn't see anywhere that it had even been touched. Fit like a glove with only one fitting and Joana herself is lovely and friendly. Couldn't have wished for better, thank you so much Joana.

Kat Whittingham


Joana has been amazing. She made buying my wedding dress such a lovely experience and I would recommend Joana's Boutique to everyone! Stunning dress and perfect adjustments.

Had my first fitting with Joana Tuesday, and all I can say is Joana is amazing. I've lost weight and she's pinned my dress perfectly.

Sarah Jane Ford



From the moment I first went into the shop I was made to feel welcomed and at ease after having a bad experience in another bridal shop. Joana listened to the style of dress I was thinking, she said to go and look at all the dress on the rails and pick some to try on. Throughout the whole experience she was extremely helpful, went the extra mile regardless of how busy she was and nothing was too big for her. I would definitely recommend joana for any and all brides who want peace of mind and value for money.

Sarah King



I just cannot say enough good things about Joana! I got married on Saturday (27th August 2016) at 37 weeks pregnant and Joana ensured that my dress made me feel amazing. The quality of her seamstress work is simply second to none and she is nothing short of a genius. She was so accommodating and left major alterations to the last minute to allow for my growing bump. On top of her professionalism and the high quality of her work she is a lovely, kind and friendly person.

Joann Middleton



What an amazing lady she is.I went for last minute to the shop,needed another dress desperate.Joana was lovely and made my day very special.I would highly recommend Joana shop to every bride to be. Thank you very much Joana.

Denisa Sutton



I went to see Joana feeling very apprehensive as I don't wear dresses all that often and I was worried about not finding a dress that suited me. I need not have worried at all. From start to finish Joana made me feel completely at ease and could not have been more helpful. She was kind, attentive, has an increddible eye for detail and nothing is too much trouble. I could not reccomend Joana highly enough.

Becky Brook



I cannot recommend Joanna enough! I was amazed about how fantastic and talented she is! My dress was lace and the train was really long, and it need a lot taking off and taking the bust in. Joanna took my measurements once and when I next tried the dress on it fitted beautifully! Couldn't be how amazing it looked! Thank you again Joanna! Xxx

Leanne Tippey


Joana altered my wedding dress recently and I couldn't recommend her more! She was very friendly, bubbly, and helpful. Full of advice and very welcoming. She even added a loop so I could loop my dress up rather than have the train on the floor the entire time! Thank you Joana, the dress looked beautiful and the alterations were invisible!

Steph Clark

Kum Isabel


Joana is the very best of seamstresses, funny, cheerful, listens to what you have to say but not shy about saying if it won't work/look right.I had my veil made by Joana (she put lovely photos on here) and her professionalism ensured she wouldn't make it without seeing the dress first and checking itnwould look right.

I wojld not hesitate to recommend Joana to absolutely anyone who wanted the very best work and service.

Lizzie Olley



Just want to say a huge thank you to the ladies at finishing touches especially Rachel who found the perfect dress for me and all the help you gave me in choosing all the little details. Very good service and would definatly recommend xxx
