Take care,

Hi Sharon,

We had the BEST day on Saturday! 💕

Firstly, wanted to thank you for the beautiful dress all your help and support over the years. It really was the perfect dress for me and I really appreciate your advice and help x

Our photographed has sent a few ‘sneak peak’ photos, which we adore!



Dear Sharon and team,

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for everything you did from helping me find my wedding dress to tailoring it for me to being so careful with covid so that I could always come to my appointments safely. I absolutely loved the dress and felt so beautiful on the day! I have attached some photos to this email. 

Your shop is beautiful as are the dresses and I would recommend your shop to anyone that wanted to find a classic stunning dress! 

Thank you again,

Hannah X

Hi Sharon, hope you’re well? Just wanted to share our wedding day with you! We managed to get to the Dominican just fine, and it was an incredible holiday. Our wedding day was so incredibly emotional as it rained all day! We were due to be married at 4pm and it was still raining. I decided to wait an hour to see if it held off and it did! So, at 5.20pm we finally tied the knot and it was perfect! Thanks to the rain the beach was deserted! The day after another lady got married and people were being so rude, shouting, kids running round, someone even walked past her ceremony with a boombox! The universe really was on our side that day and I couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day.

I just wanted to thank you so much again for helping me find my dress, everyone loved it and my dad even said it was better than he even imagined (which set me off crying as you can imagine). But I would never have dreamt of a dress like my Millie but you helped me find my dream dress and I can’t thank you enough.

Here’s some photos from the day, you’re

more than welcome to use and share any of these 🙂

Hi Sharon

Here are a few photos of my daughter Bethan who eventually got married last September. We first visited your shop on September 12th 2020 and subsequently bought this wonderful dress. She absolutely loved it and I thought looked stunning on the day(but I would think that being Mum!!)

Thanks again for your help when she chose the dress and had it fitted. I will recommend ‘Brides of York’ to anyone getting married.

Kind regards

Gill Evans

Hi Sharon, 

I hope you are good! 

I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for everything with my dress. You made me feel so comfortable from day 1 and made the whole process really wonderful. 

Joe and I had the best day on Saturday (I got so many compliments on my dress, I felt like a celebrity), the weather was great and the majority of the guests were able to come! 

I’ve attached some photos from the day in case you’re interested 🙂 

Thank you so much again (and I will be sending any brides I know your way in the future) 


Hi Sharon! 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your  help with my wedding dress, it was absolutely perfect! I couldn’t have wished for anything better! I have attached some pictures for you to see what it was like on the day! Hope you had a lovely birthday!

Hi Sharon 

Hope all is well with you and things have calmed done a bit since the summer! 

Excuse the delay with sending these, but I have attached some of the photos from our photographer (Melissa Beattie) including some good shots of my dress 🙂 the photos are actually too large to send together so I will send via separate emails. 

I absolutely loved my dress and it was perfect on the day, thanks so much again for all of your help and advice, it was VERY much appreciated!

All the best, 

Alex x

Hi Sharon,

Wish I could wear it again!

Hi Sharon, 

I have to thank you so so much… I haven’t received so many compliments ever! Even the staff at the venue said this dress was the most beautiful they had ever seen. I felt a million dollars. 


Thank you so so much. 



Hi Sharon!

Hi Sharon,

Thanks so much for all your help with finding my perfect wedding dress – we had the best day on Sunday, just want to do it all again!

That day only had a couple of hiccups, one person fainted in the ceremony as it was so hot! And then I spilt berry juice down my dress when we were eating – mum was the life saver – cold water and a hair dryer and it all came out! Below are a few photos, thank you once again!

Hannah xx






Hello Sharon,

Hi Sharon,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and new year!

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for all your help and mostly for helping find the most perfect wedding dress.

We managed to get married on the 16th December. We had 13 guests and did manage to have our reception 😄. We had the most amazing day and i wouldn’t have changed a thing, even if i could.

My dress really was perfect. I felt incredible all day in it. I keep looking at it now hanging up and it just makes me smile!

I have attached some pictures for you 🙂 I’ll send some more on once we get some from the photographer as i know there is some with more of the dress in.

Love Hayley xx



You made all this happen! What a dress!
Thank you so so much.

Jen & Alex











Hi Sharon,
Please find attached some photos from the wedding!

Thank you so much for all your help with choosing my dress – I couldn’t have asked for anyone more friendly!

I had so many compliments on my dress and the Wedding organiser at the hotel said she had never seen one as pretty and detailed as what I was wearing.

I loved wearing it and I can’t wait to hopefully wear it again for an anniversary party where we can celebrate properly without Covid in the way!

Thank you so much
Erin Broadbent x





Sharon at Brides of York helped me find your beautiful Dinah dress – gorgeous design, excellent craftsmanship, and wonderful support from Sharon all the way through the challenges of 2020. It was a pleasure to get married in this perfect dress!’

Hello Sharon,

I can never thank you enough for all of your endless help and support over the last 18 months. You not only helped me to find my perfect dress, you were also on hand to give advice about so many other aspects of the day.

You have not only been professional throughout but also incredibly friendly – I genuinely looked forward to each of my trips to see you!

Your expertise meant that nothing phased you, you knew what would suit me and also could give fantastic advice. You listened carefully to what I wanted and helped me to create exactly what I wanted for the day.

Your patience and kindness to me and my family will never be forgotten and helped to create wonderful memories.

lauraHi Sharon,

Sorry it’s taken so long to write, I’ve been meaning to for weeks….

I just wanted to send you huge THANKS for all you help with my wedding dress. From the first visit to browse, right to the final fitting and collection, you and the team there were nothing but smiley, friendly and helpful. I felt so comfortable around you, and you were a real pleasure to deal with.
And the dress, oh the dress, I just felt nothing short of amazing in it. I have never felt as beautiful as I did wearing it – I’ve included a couple of pictures for you. I got lovely compliments, thank you so much for helping me find it, and for tweaking it so it was just right….secret sparkle!

Laura – the new Mrs Claringbold!




lottieHi Sharon and all the fabulous ladies at Brides of York.

Can I personally take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to you ALL for an amazing experience; buying my wedding dress from you. I absolutely loved all my dress fittings and looked forward each time to trying my dress on and being looked after by you.

We got married on Friday 24th June; in an outside ceremony and the dress was a huge hit!!! I cannot get over the comments and reaction. I felt like a million dollars in it and it was a perfect match to the theme of my wedding.

I’ve attached one or two pictures for you, I am more than happy to get the official ones over to you when they are ready as well.

Thank you so much once again for an amazing experience. I will certainly be recommending you to any future bride lucky enough to buy a dress from you.

With all my love and fondest wishes.

michaelaHi Sharon,

I hope this email finds you well and you are having a good weekend. As promised, please find attached a few snaps of me in my amazing Evita dress! I absolutely loved wearing it and had so many amazing comments on it’s style and design on the day – I couldn’t have been happier!

As you can see on the photos, I took your advice and decided to keep my hair straight on the day – as with everything else, you were absolutely right! Thank you so much for all your advice and guidance in the run up to the wedding – you and the team truly made finding the perfect dress that best experience I could have asked for. I felt amazing on the day and it’s all down to you!

If you do you any photos online please could you credit our incredible photographers Stott & Atkinson? They have also done a little blog online if you were interested in seeing any other photos from the day – it was a lot of work setting up but totally worth it and so much fun!

Thanks so much again,
Michaela xxxxx

heathdoogDear Sharon & The Team

Thank you so much for all your help with choosing the perfect dress for my special day.
You knew exactly what style of dress that would suit my figure. I cannot explain in words how much i appreciate your help and advice and also the fact that you understood I needed to keep trying the dress on as a goal to lose my weight in tme for the wedding.

All i can say is that everyone at the wedding thought i looked stunning, but that aside I felt so amazing and so special, never felt that good at all in my life.

Thankyou to you all at Brides of York and would highly recomend you to future brides for the absolute first class service you provide.

See you all soon

Carol and TedHello ladies
I thought I would send you a couple of photos of our wedding on 21st May at Malcesine in Italy. Everyone loved my dress and the day was wonderful. Thanks for your help and patience in getting my dress ready for the big occasion – I’ve sent you some photos of how it looked on the day. Still waiting for the official photos, but thank you again.
Best Wishes
Carol Kerr (aka Mrs Heatley)









I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping me choose my gorgeous dress. I was really struggling to make any decision before I went to your Northallerton branch but as soon as my mum burst in to tears I knew it was ‘the one’. My bridesmaids also really loved their dresses and they looked so beautiful on the day.

A massive thank you to all the girls who helped us all with our fittings too. You all made everything nice and easy and stress free which was amazing.

I’ve attached a few photos to see how everything looked on the day. I have a few friends getting married over the next few years and will certainly be recommending they visit you. 

Thanks again

I would just like to say a huge thank you to yourself and the ladies in the shop for being absolutely fantastic. My dress was amazing andI had so many lovely compliments on the day! It fit perfectly and stayed put the whole duration! Apart from a few floor trailing stains at the bottom, the dress is still immaculate! Despite never being able to wear it again ( other than in my own time ;D ) I will never part with it!

Our day was fantastic and the sun was on us all day, surprisingly!
But, again. Thank you for all your help through out.
kind regards,

Very best wishes








georginaDear Sharon,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help and support in getting me ready for the big day. I was really happy with the dress; I felt so comfortable in it – it just felt right.

And the best compliment was a French girlfriend who told me that she’d never seen a dress so perfectly suited to a Bride… as you know, that means A LOT coming from a French woman!

I’m attaching a few pics in case of interest. We haven’t yet had the professional photos through, but hopefully these at least give an idea of how everything looked.

Thanks too to Helen and the whole team at Brides of York – you were all amazing!

Hope to see you again at some point!

Luke & ClaireHello,

I recently got married on The 12th April at Winder Hall in Cumbria. I just wanted to say thank you for all the help and advice you gave me whilst choosing my Dress. I chose a Cymbeline Fema dress. It was perfect! The dress reflected my personality and looked amazing next to the grooms tweed suit! The layers when hooked up for dancing looked lovely and enabled me to dance the night away.

Thank You for your professional and friendly advice, I was thrilled with my dress and didn’t want to take it off!

I have enclosed some photos, you are welcome to use them if you wish.

Kind Regards
Claire Bryant (nee Dixon!)

.Christinahi charlotte,

I know its been a while but here are the photographs as promised!!!! i would just like to say a really really big thank you to you as the dress was perfect and i felt truly beautiful in it, i kept it on till midnight even though i was sucking in my tummy holding in 4 course dinner and an evening buffet of bacon butties and chips, hoping that my organs would return to their original places once the dress was off…. but it was totally worth it. So i would like you to have a look through these photos noting the happy smiling bride and groom knowing that you had a huge part to play in making us both very happy on our wedding day!

Lots of love and all the best

I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for all your help finding me the perfect dress. The day itself was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed every minute. I’m sending through a couple of photos for you to have a look at. We are looking forward to getting the professional ones soon.

Thank you again and best wishes








cathyHi all

As requested I am forwarding a few photos from Helen and Johnny’s wedding.

We all had a fantastic day from start to finish. The sun shone and the dress looked absolutely perfect. It really seemed to have been made for Helen. She never stopped smiling all day!

Thank you all so much for the time and care which you put in to help Helen to make her choice and to make the dress look so beautiful. We really did appreciate it. We also enjoyed every minute of all our appointments!

Thanks again,

Cathy Foster and Mrs Helen Ash.





stipladyDear Sharon

Thank you so much for all of your help and advice with my wedding dress and accessories. You were so knowledgable (pointing out things that I would never have considered!) and the whole team at Brides of York were very accommodating. I loved wearing the dress; it was really comfortable and I felt like a million dollars!

Please also pass on my thanks to your colleagues.

With very best wishes,

Mrs S Tiplady




I have attached a few photos for you, please feel free to use for your web site etc.

I appreciate all your help over the past few months my wedding dress is amazing and I felt very special in it.

See you soon,








LouiseHi Sharon,

Wedding was perfect and everything ran smoothly.
Please pass my thanks to your sister who was incredibly helpful and a huge thanks to you all.
Please find attached to pics.

Kind regards
Louise Stinson




annaHey it’s Anna,

zoeHi All!

As promised, I am sending some photo’s of me/dress and hubbie Mike for you all to see one of your brides in action but also for you to forward to Marguerite. I am sending photos through in separate emails because having problems sending, not sure if it is my end or your firewall, but hopefully one by one they will reach you!

Thank you so much to you all for everything, I couldn’t have been happier with the dress and accessories and you were all an absolute delight to deal with. We had the most wonderful and memorable day, it really was perfect. I felt like a proper princess.

Please also pass on my thanks to Marguerite. I absolutely loved my dress, I felt so special in it. I had so many compliments, my friends and family were just raving about how beautiful the dress was with many saying, quite genuinely, that it was the nicest or one of the nicest dresses they had seen. 2 of my friends want to get married again so they can borrow my dress! Most importantly, Mike thought it was perfect. He was pretty choked when he saw me appear at the bottom of the aisle in the church. And my Dad was also choked, very unusual for him!

I loved the fact that although it was a big dress I was so free to move around. I just loved ‘floating’ around in it and didn’t want to sit down. Infact, we had an amazing band play during our evening do and we spent a big chunk of the evening dancing, it was amazing!

Thanks again to you all for everything!

Love and best wishes

Zoe Thompson! xx

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for helping me choose my perfect dress. You made the whole process very stress free and enjoyable, which isn’t easy for me as I hate dress shopping!

I had so many lovely compliments from everyone on the day.

I have attached a photo of me and my gorgeous bridesmaids for you to see.

Thanks again,




You will be receiving a more formal thank you from myself and Craig very soon but I’ve been dying to contact you and take this opportunity to send you some pictures from our perfect wedding day.

From the very start when I visited The Bridal Lounge in Northallerton you were first class in every way. My whole experience from the initial selection of my chosen gown, fittings and collecting has been fabulous; all down to the professional, experienced and friendly approach you gave, even down to the little extra personal touches which made my bridal gown feel extra special. I have also enjoyed a good giggle with you along the way. I will never forget your help and support throughout, which culminated in me feeling absolutely relaxed and stunning in my bridal gown on my wedding day, particularly when I saw Craig’s gasp and exclamation of, ‘Wow!’, when I walked down the grand staircase at Carlton Towers.

Thank you so much and with kind regards from us both,

Zoe & Craig Innes


HelenDear Sharon,

I thought I’d send you some photos of our wedding day as promised. Thankyou so much for all of your help and also thankyou to all of your lovely staff too, all of the effort that you went to for me was very much appreciated.
Our wedding day went very well, the weather was a little drizzly but nonetheless mainly dry, but only a handful of photos were able to be taken outside. In truth, I wasn’t very pleased with our photographer, she’s a lovely lady, but a few of the photos are out of focus & there are some really poor quality photographs.

Thankyou once again, I think you’re all fabulous,

Helen Scrivener






hannahHello Sharon,

Hi Charlotte
Thank you so much for all your help and advice on choosing the right dress for my wedding day. Everyone commented on how stunning the dress looked and I felt like a princess all day which made our day even more special.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone you are a great assest to the Bridal Lounge in Northallerton.
Best Wishes
Sarah Simpson (Robinson)








Hi Sharon,

I really can’t thank you and your lovely ladies enough. You helped me find my perfect dress and every visit to Brides of York felt so special. What a wonderful team, a wonderful range and a wonderful service you have there.

As promised, a few more pics of my dress “in action”! (The younger chap is my brother, who gave me away.). Are you able to pass these on to Marguerite? Or am I best to do that directly? She really is the most incredible artist.

Thank you all again,

Heather (Mrs Jones!)

Hi Charlotte and Sharon

So sorry it’s taken so long- I wanted to send you the professional pictures, which I only received last week, and then I totally forgot to send you the email until I saw Martin Kemp on Jonathan Ross last night 🙂

Attached are a few pictures of me and Al on the day of our wedding in Portmeirion, North Wales.

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help – from choosing a dress for me which I wouldn’t even have dreamt of myself, to completing ALL those alterations, most notably with that pesky halter-neck!!!! Everything came together perfectly on the day, and it was totally down to your hard work in the lead up to our big day!! I really can’t thank you enough!!

Thanks again for everything

Hi Sharon

Here are some pictures for you.

Thank you to the girls at Northallerton. I loved my dress so much and here is a picture for you. X











Charlotte & Sharon,

Thank you so much for ‘convincing’ me I could pull this dress off! I haven’t come across any pics with the front out yet as it was quite late & our photographer had left but if any guest have any I’ll forward on.

Hope you like the attached 🙂

Catherine & Martin







To Charlotte & Sharon,

I have finally gotten around to sending you a couple of photo’s from my Wedding Day (17th March 2012). My Sister hadn’t seen my dress prior to my wedding day but she loved it when she saw me in it for the first time. My Husband loved it too, as did other guests.
Thank you for all your help, time & effort.

Sarah O’Grady




I can’t thank Charlotte and Sharon at the Bridal Lounge in Northallerton enough. Will and I got engaged on Christmas Eve 2011 and only a week later set the date for our wedding – May 12th 2012! I went to the Bridal Lounge early January and instead of telling me how it would be nearly impossible to have a dress made in that time (as I had been told over the phone by a couple of other retailers) I was talked through which designers offered an expedited service and what options I had in terms of buying from stock and having the dress altered. Having had a firm idea of what kind of dress I had in mind I was (gently!) persuaded to try and few different styles and thank goodness I did because I fell in love with an Augusta Jones lace gown having been sure I didn’t want to wear lace. The service provided by the Bridal Lounge was seamless and I could not have been more pleased with my dress on the day – I felt amazing! Our photographer (Henry Aarvold) liked the dress so much that we agreed to do a post wedding shoot at a nearby location. You can see how great the dress looked both at the wedding and the post wedding shoot. Once again, many thanks,
