I found Savvy Cinderella and as a result the lovely Sue, through my now sister in law, as she had once hired out a dress!
From the moment I met Sue I knew that I would be buying my dress from the shop.. Between the beautiful dresses that she stocked and how amazingly nice (and non judgemental she was.. Unlike some bridal shops) I just knew it would be ‘my place’
I found an absolutely beautiful dress, opposite to what I wanted.. AND ON SALE! (Bargain!)
Sue was always so friendly and easy to get hold of.. Nothing was ever too difficult for her! I also purchased my gorgeous bridesmaids dresses from Savvy, my boys got their suits and my tiara! So all round it was fabulous
We are now expecting our first little baby .. A girl!! And I can’t wait to take her to meet the lovely Sue thank you so much for everything.. Love Mrs and Mr C xxxx     August 2013



HI Sue, –  He was a happy husband. Happy all day and said such lovely things in his speech.  Was the best day ever.  You made it so special and for that we can’t thank you enough.
Obviously that wasn’t a professionally done piccy but I like it. Zoe xxx    (I love it too Zoe, you look amazing!)   August 2013

Thank you for your excellent service in helping Emily find her perfect prom dress.  You have such a kind way about you, and your attention to design detailing is stunning.  Thank you.    Mrs Hart.  1st February 2013.

Savvy Cinderella is the best kept secret in the wedding world.   Tucked away in the middle of nowhere, this place is a GEM.  I hired a beautiful gown for under £400, including veil and tiara, –  would have been £800 to buy, but I am on a budget, and like the idea of hiring.  Thank you for making our day so enjoyable Sue.  We traveled for over 2 hours to get to you in the snow,  but it was absolutely worth it.  Jemma G.  January 2013

SAVVY CINDERELLA IS THE PLACE TO GO.  I was amazed at the choice of dresses available, and the stunning range.  You have to see these dresses for yourself to see how beautiful they are, and Sue is amazing. She has all the time in the world for you, and makes you feel like the only bride getting married.  I chose a Phil Collins Dress for under £800 to buy, and I could not be happier.  I can not wait to my wedding day now, and I am looking forward to seeing Sue again in the Summer –  Enjoy your break Sue, you deserve it.  Hannah M.   28th January 2013


Hi Sue,
Just wanted to say thank you again for loaning me this beautiful dress, it really is just perfect.  With a heavy heart, I have posted the dress back today.  I have attached a photo for you. Feel free to use it as a hiring/selling aid for the dress if you wish.
Kind regards & thanks   Lorna B.      (Thank your Lorna for the beautiful photo’s, and for allowing me to share it, Sue x)

Spoilt for choice!

Wedding Dresses to buy or to Hire

Beautiful Emma


It’s no wonder why brides travel for hours to come to Savvy Cinderella! From the first moment we arrived, our experience was brilliant. Sue has just what it takes to make every bride (and her mum and her bridesmaids) look and feel like a million dollars. Even though I hired my dress, it was still customised exactly how I wanted and tailored for me on my big day. Seamstress, Dyll, is a star, making a co-ordinating sash for my little bridesmaid to match the adults. Nothing was too much trouble for Sue or Dyll, and I can honestly say that they really helped make my wedding day the happiest day of my life!   Full testimonal in bridal blog  –  Beautiful Bride – Thank you       Emma Waldron

Thank you to Sue & Nick at Savvy Cinderella for your fantastic service from start to finish. Because of your amazing service we brought my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses and hired mens outfits!

Kathryn Says: Well my appointment at Savvy Cinderella was fab. I took a few friends with me and Sue was so helpful and could not do enough for us. She has got a beautiful range of products that include bridal dresses, bridesmaids dress, jewellery, suits etc and all at amazing prices. I have basically picked my dress and going back in the week to show my mum then will actually place the order and give sue the deposit then i will be a bit closer to walking down the aisle!! Thanks again Sue xxx

Anna Says: Morning Sue,  I just wanted to say a big thank you for making my day special yesterday. You made me feel like nothing was a problem and I didn’t feel rushed or pressured. it was also nice to have your input and to try on veils and shoes. I will most definitely be recommending you to anyone who tells me they are getting married, in fact I’ve already put a recommendation on facebook. I look forward to returning soon to look for my bridesmaid dresses and Stewart will be coming to look at your suits. Thank you once again.  Anna x

Finally someone who listens!
Emma W. says: What a refreshing change, Sue was friendly, helpful and honest. There was a wide variety of dresses which were available to buy or hire. The relaxed atmosphere made the whole experience an utter joy and I was thrilled to finally find my dress! I cannot wait to recommend Savvy Cinderella to the next person to tell me they are getting married!

Hiring is The Way to Go!


Samantha P. says: I  hired my wedding dress from Savvy Cinderella, and my wedding day (12 May 2012) was perfect.  I am not a standard size, so the dress needed alterations to make sure it fitted me like a glove, and it did.  I can not thank Sue and Dyll enough for making my dress and day so perfect.  I have sent it back now, and hope another bride gets to enjoy it as much as I did.  Hiring a dress from Savvy Cinderella was a perfect option for me, lots of choice, styles and a perfect brand new dress, which I don’t have to get cleaned and find space for in my new house.  The dresses are beautiful, and I hired a brand new one, but Sue tells you if the dress has been hired before.  I can not recommend the hiring option enough, or how beautiful the dresses are.  I paid  £300.00 for a brand new Romantica Dress with veil, plus alterations of £40.00.  I saved over £400.00.


Jo S
Jo S. says: I had my wedding dress appoinment on Saturday and found an amazing dress at a very affordable price! Sue was just lovely. Incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. An all round great experience. I would definitely recommend Savvy Cinderella.
Fantastic service & beautiful dresses
Helen T. says: Sue made me feel completely relaxed. I had a rough idea of what kind of dress I wanted and Sue could easily accomodate. Sue is creating my own individual wedding dress with a combination of 2 dresses that she showed me… very flexible and I get a unique dress… what bride could ask for more?… Definitely recommend a visit!!
Excellent, Definitely worth a visit
Donna R. says: Thank you so much for a fabulous appointment yesterday. The service was excellent and I was immediately made to feel comfortable and welcome.

Beautiful dresses and fantastic advice
Yvette G. says: I went for an initial consultation with Sue. She was so helpful, letting me try different styles of dress. I was made to feel comfortable as soon as I arrived. I didn’t feel any pressure to buy that day and have booked another appointment so that my Mum can come with me. I can’t wait to go back!


Amie D. says: Thank you for such a great service and being so friendly, i was very nervous after going to more stuffy wedding shops but i was put at ease very quickly and found my perfect wedding dress at great price and was not pressured or hurried and i also found so great accessories!     (you are very welcome Amie, I am really pleased you found a dress you loved.  Sue x)
Carmen R. says: I went to Sue to try on wedding dresses, and left with the perfect dress. She was patient, helpful and just lovely. I would definitely recommend her to everyone.

Hi Sue – I wanted to do a review for you on your website – but there aren’t enough stars available to give you!!  Thank you so much for everything you did for me, Mum and my sister. It was more than 5* service, and I will never be able to thank you enough for all the kindness you showed me, and for my beautiful dress.  I didnt want to give it back, but if someone else gets to feel half as special as I did,  they will have a perfect wedding day.

Angela c. says: My daughter went here in search of a prom dress, There was alot to choose from, she must of tried on about 10 dresses then went back to the ones she liked most, Never felt rushed,sue was very calm and patient even though my daughter took her time to choose,when she did she was very happy with her choice,defintly would recomend going to sue.
Value for Money
2 April 2012
Sarah P:  I had been recommended Savvy Cinderella by over a dozen different people, so I had to go along and see for myself.  I am very pleased I did.  I now have a beautiful gown, veil and 2 bridesmaid dresses, and all for under my£1000 budget.  The service was kind, honest and patient.  I felt like I was being helped by a friend.  Thank you Sue.
Lovely experience
Jenny K. says: Sue was a lovely lady & made me feel at ease straight away! She listened to what I wanted from my wedding dress & delivered so many ideas! She also had lots of advice to give & it was just an all round, nice experience.
Alison D. says: I travelled over an hour today to reach the store and I was so pleased I did! Wonderful service, Sue is fantastic! She did not rush me or make me feel under any pressure to buy, unlike some bridal shops I have visited. She was extremely helpful, gave great advice, and made me feel really special. Best of all, I came away with a gorgeous dress! Thank you so much! Alison

Paula g. says: My daughter had a prom dress fitting on saturday, sue was so friendly and caring. She paid so much attention to my daughter and made her feel like a princess. Sue was very friendly and very knowledgable with lots of tips and hints to make her prom special. My daughter ended up getting the dress of her dreams and is now one happy teenager. I thoroughly recommend this shop as we have visited other prom shops ans have not recd any of the attention that Sue gave to us on the day. We travelled an hour to visit this shop and it was well worth it. Cannot thank you enough sue for your excellent customer service xx
Well worth the trip

Savvy Cinderella Bridal Hire
Excellent service
Charley s. says: sue was very friendly and put me to ease quickly i found 2 dresses i liked to hire and one was alot more than the other but where other shops would push you to the higher price sue didnt and she suggested ideas that i could add to the dress to make it my own, her room is like a tardis and i have never seen so many wedding dresses and she is always gettin more in cant wait to go back and try on the dress again. will definately reccomend and good value for money well worth the 2 hours drive there

Lisa T:  I was beginning to think I would never find my dream dress after months of searching so many shops and being told that’s the one for you, it’s perfect, even when I knew I looked like a sack of potatoes! I felt all they wanted was a sale, I was starting to panic time was running out! So I sat down with a mug of hot chocolate and a chocolate bar to console myself and started searching online and there I found Savvy Cinderella – wow. I love the fact that nothing is to much trouble for Sue who even picked me up from the train station now that is what I call first class service. I also loved that despite walking up and down in my dress about a hundred times (only because I didn’t want to take it off)  Sue never rushed me once.  I also really appreciated her honesty of what does look good and doesn’t. I know that I am a perfectionist and have being very demanding on Sue and all the time she just reassures me and is the most patient person I have ever come acrosss.  I love the ethos of this business and think its brilliant and creative, and I can’t wait to wear my dress. Oh and I have now cut down on the chocolate bars!  Best wishes Lisa x  December 2011

Lisa, Perfect!

Well worth the Visit.

DonnaMarie:  I travelled 2 hours to see Savvy Cinderella, and it was well worth the visit.  I found my dress, at a brilliant price, and could not be happier.  Thank you so much to Sue and to Dyll for all their amazing help. The business is not High Street, but private and relaxed and unique.  I would never have had that level of attention anywhere else, and I am so pleased I found Savvy.

What can I say!!!!

Karen K. says: My Mum found Sue whilst searching endlessly through the internet…and am I pleased she did! We got the whole lot from Sue, from my most perfect wedding dress, shoes, head dress, bridesmaids dresses and the hire of the grooms suit and the rest of the remaining mens suits. Sue and Nick were always patient and listened to everything we asked of them, nothing was too difficult. And good prices too…..the room is a tardis and a complete pleasant surprise when entering. Definitely worth a visit.

Every bride, groom, bridesmaid etc NEEDS to visit Savvy Cinderella

Rebecca P. says: Sue is so fantastic, full of helpful tips and so accommodating. I knew I was in good hands from the moment I walked in! It is easy to see why the business is winning awards! A really amazing service can’t say enough positive things. I would definitely recommend!


Such a surprising place!

Amy L. says:  Lovely Lovely Lovely.   I enjoyed my time with Sue so much, I want to do it again!  I found my dream dress, and I cant wait to get married now.  I love the unusual studio set up Savvy Cinderella has.

I just  wanted to say well done Savvy Cinderella on winning the award.  I saw it in the Paper, and can honestly say that you really deserved to win.  Good luck for the future.  Anna T   (I bought my beautiful dress in 2009 from you).

Thank you Sue.  I had a wonderful afternoon with you.  I really enjoyed the fact that my appointment was private and relaxed.  I felt as if we had always been friends.  I will be back to make my final decision next week (are you free on the 8th?)  but no matter what, I will be buying my dress from you, it is just hard choosing from so many lovely ones.   Gemma O.
Fiona W. says: Always being a bit of a tom boy i was quite nervous about looking for my wedding dress but as soon as I arrived at Savvy Cinderella Sue made me feel at ease. She was very helpful and patient, especially as i had my grandma with me who couldnt help but get tearful at the sight of me in Sue’s collection of gorgeous dresses. Lucky for me i only had to try on five dresses before i fell in love with the last one. Sue really made me feel like a princess, and that was just in finding the dress! Imagine how im going to feel on the day!! Thankyou sooooo much. Ill be back soon with my bridesmaid to get her dress too. I would definately recommend Savvy Cinderella to anybody who wants to look and feel special :-)
Incredible Service
Emma S. says: Sue was so welcoming, even though Mum and I were 30 minutes early arriving! She really listened to what I wanted and then showed me a range of dresses in the chosen style that I wouldn’t have even considered, which was brilliant for ideas. When I found the dress I fell in love with, it wasn’t what I’d expected to fall in love with! Sue agreed to hold the dress for me because Mum and I couldn’t get back to the shop again for 4 weeks for a second look, which I think is amazing. Her other tips for the big day were also really helpful – everything from where to go for shoes, the best bras out there and how to stand up in heels all day! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sue and Savvy Cinderella.  September 2011
Sarah P
Sarah P. says: Thank you so much for helping me create the most perfect dresses. We really couldn’t have done it without Sue’s help, and she’s such a natural at her job. Can’t wait for the big day now, Sue and her team have been a huge part of making the whole experience so wonderful. Thanks again x
Kerry C. says: I drove 2 hours to see a particular dress at savvy cinderella, you were so welcoming and helpful, although the dress wasn’t what I had hoped, sue said she could make my dream dress, I was stunned that she could do this and at an excellent price!! I will definatly recommend savvy cinderella and I will see you in dec/jan time to discuss my dress. Thank you x

Just The Best

Suzie k. says: Sue is just the best. She has the ability to make you feel instantly relaxed and never made me feel anything was too much trouble. I am a slightly plus size bride and struggled to find a bridal shop that held stock above a size 18 for me to try on. Sue is on my doorstep and saved my sanity. She had lots for me to try and that was before she held stock of a plus size range (which she now has as well) I could not have asked for more from Sue, and I would highly recommend her to all my friends.
Kelly S. says: Sue was really great, I tried on quite a few dresses but ended up choosing the first one I put on and I loved it.Also the fact I can hire is great thanks for all your help!on and I loved it.Also the fact I can hire is great thanks for all your help!
Very Welcoming!
Chantal F. says: I would definately recommend Savvy Cinderella! Sue is very welcoming and helpful, she has helped answer many of my bombarding questions lol! It is local to me so is very convenient. Sue has a wide variety of dresses and all sorts of other things you might need. Thank you for making my visits so enjoyable (and not stressful)!
Wonderful place!
Samantha S. says: Sue has a fantastic range of dresses to hire. I was immediately made to feel comfortable and welcome, and she gave me really good advice on a whole range of things I’m thinking about for my big day. I would definately recommend Savvy Cinderella to any bride.

Carly Says:  I have been everywhere looking for a dress, and I had given up hope.  I saw Sue, she guided me, advised me, and I now have my dream dress, menshire, and bridesmaid dresses.  We even hired the Wedding Car as I fell in love with that too.  September 2011

Amy Says:  I could hardly believe my luck when I came across Savvy Cinderella.  I had a budget of  £500 to buy, and Sue sorted me out with everything I needed, tiara, veil and dress, even the shoes, all under budget. The whole experience was fantastic.  Dont expect a High Street shop,  Savvy Cinderella is a private, relaxed and very friendly studio, in the middle of nowhere.  Stunning.     I sent the men there for the suits, and they all said how easy it was, and how much they enjoyed their experience.  High praise indeed!

Hi Sue, I wanted to say thank you for all your help and kindness this weekend.  You have made my daughter so relaxed about it all, and we are so pleased with the dress she has chosen.  The 10% off was a real help. but what was so refreshing was the service, help and relaxed way you conduct your business.  I felt like I was with a friend, even though we had only just met..  Thank you  Marion H. September 2011.

Hi Sue.  Good Luck with Retailer of the Year.  You deserve it!  We had a wonderful time with you, and couldn’t be happier with what I have.  I still cant quite believe I have a dress for under £500.00, and my dream dress too, my budget was £1000, so I am so pleased with myself.  Cant wait to see you in May 2012!!  Amy.  September 2011

It was very good, Savvy is very kind, very nice.  I like the everything about her. God Bless her.   Nana .  August 2011

Hi Sue.  We came to you because we were guests at a wedding recently, and fell in love with the bridesmaids dresses you did, and loved the Mens Suits that you also hired.  The men involved all said how welcoming and relaxing it was to come to you, so we were sold before we walked through your door for the suits.  To get my dress, the bridesmaids and flowergirls, and the mensuits from under one roof has been a huge help,  and I cant stress enough how lovely the dresses are, and how easy it is to deal with you.  I have everything I need for my wedding, and from such a unique setting. Thank you once again, and we will ALL see you in January.  I cant wait.  Carly. August 2011

Hi Sue.  Thank you for all your help.  I cant tell you how relieved I am to be getting my dress made, how I want it, for under £500.  The bridesmaids are still deciding on which style – it is down to the onestrap and the halterneck – I will let you know once we are all agreed.  Thank you once again.  I really loved coming to see you again, and your lovely studio always has something new to catch my eye.  Sally-Ann  August 2011

Hi Thank you ever so much for yesterday if was a fantastic day, i was so chuffed to have sorted out all the dresses n 2 hours, thank you very much – Emma P  August 2011

Hi Sue.  Thank you for all your help getting us ready for our big day.  We all loved coming to you, and enjoyed your lovely relaxing set-up. Savvy Cinderella is unique and lovely in every way, I am sad I wont be coming again.  I will recommend you to everyone, so perhaps I can come again when my friends get married.   Tara August 2011

I travelled from South London to get to Savvy Cinderella, and found it to be exactly what I was looking for.  A lovely range of dresses for the bigger lady, ( which I wont be after my diet lol), and a helpful and lovely woman called Sue to guide me through what I thought would be very stressful ordeal – , but it turned out to be very relaxing, satisfying and well worth the journey.  I was recommended Savvy Cinderella by a colleague from work who had hired her dress, and I was interested to see how a ‘little studio in the country’ would measure up for a fussy bride like me.  It did, I am happy and I want to go back to see Sue again,as  it was such a lovely afternoon.  I have chosen to hire my dress, and I could not be happier. It is perfect, and meant I can spend a bit more on other my honeymoon.   To have everything I wanted for under £400 is perfect for me, I easily would have spent £1000 more closer to home.  Thank you Sue.  Ally. August 2011

Menshire:  You made all my men look fantastic.  They enjoyed coming to see you. and felt very relaxed.  Elizabeth.  August 2011

When I first came to you, I had no idea what I was doing, or what I wanted.  You guided me, calmed me, and advised me.  You are like nothing I have visited before, and I am so happy that I was able to have someone like you, and the atmosphere you have in your studio. You are totally unique in the wedding world, down to earth, practical and caring, and helped me get my dress on a budget.  You make beautiful dresses, and I am so happy with mine, and cant wait to wear it.   God Bless.  Aimme   August 2011

To Sue.  Thank you for all your help.  the bridesmaid dresses were absolutely gorgeous and we had so many compliments about them.  I just wish I could get married again so I could keep coming to see you.  Lots of Love Mr & Mrs Vaugh. aka Sazzle       (@sazzle84 is my lovely Twitter friend – Suex ) August 2011

Hi Sue  I thought you might like a peek at some photos from the big day!Thanks again for all your help!  I will be recommending you to my friends if they are ever in need of a pretty frock! Suzi

Hi Sue. I wanted to thank you for everything you did for my daughter (Linzi)  Her dress was stunning, and exactly as she wanted it to be, and the men looked immaculate.  You worked very hard indeed, and your advice was just very much appreciated.  Many thanks, I hope you get a break soon, you deserve a rest after all you did for us.  Caroline.  July 2011

Hi Sue   We had an amazing day and Mark loved the dress!  See you later  Amanda x

Hello Sue.  I wanted to email you soomer, but with all the excitement and the honeymoon I have been delayed.  The bridesmaids looked amazing, and I felt like a proper bride in my beautiful dress.  I still cant believe it was me!  Mum looked lovely with her fascinator, and we all recommended you highly to everyone, and in the future, will be sending anyone getting married to you.  Thanks again for all your help, and we all wish you every success, as you really deserve it.  Jane.  July 2011

Hi Sue.  I had the best day of my life, and you made it possible for me.  I can never express my gratitude for how easy you made this whole experience.  I always felt relaxed and totally at ease when I was in your studio, and that has reflected in how calm I was on the day.  I felt beautiful, and you made me see my body in a different way. I know how to dress to make the best of my figure, not just on my wedding day.  Gemma July 2011

Hello Sue.  I have returned the dress, it should be with you tomorrow.  Thank you again for everything you did. Hiring was the perfect choice, and no one could believe I had actually hired such a stunning gown.  I felt incredible.  I could have brought a dress from you, it wasn’t a cost issue, but for me, hiring was the perfect choice, and I am so glad I found you.  Knowing that someone else will get to walk down the aisle in my dress makes me very happy, I hope they feel as beautiful as I did.  Thank you, and please thank Dyll for me, she made the dress fit me so well, it looked as if it were made for me.  Please keep in touch, I want to know how well you are doing in the future.   Bev – July 2011

I would and have recommended you to friends.
Thank you for a wonderfull experience at Savvy Cinderella.
I have sent a few pictures of my dress and also the bridesmaid dresses which where all stunning  (picture above)
Thank you Sue. Helen   July 2011

Sue is just the best. She has the ability to make you feel instantly relaxed and never made me feel anything was too much trouble. I am a slightly plus size bride and struggled to find a bridal shop that held stock above a size 18 for me to try on. Sue is on my doorstep and saved my sanity. She had lots for me to try and that was before she held stock of a plus size range (which she now has as well) I could not have asked for more from Sue, and I would highly recommend her to all my friends.   SuzyK –  June 2011

Sue was very helpful and patient with my trying on an array of dresses, I found just the right one, I would definately recommend Savvy Cinderella. It was really great to find somewhere where I could hire a fabulous dress for a very reasonable hire fee. Thanks Sue    Margaret S June 2011
Dear Sue,  Paul and I have settled from all the excitement from the wedding and we want to send a sincere thankyou for all your hard work, efforts and help you provided to enable us to find the perfect dresses!  Would you please also pass our thanks onto Dyll for her help in making the perfect last minute adjustments. We had a fantastic day and really could not have wished for anything more.  Thanks again.  Chrissie and Paul –  June 2011

Hi Sue.  I am not a girly girl, and I was dreading looking for a wedding dress, but you has made it easy.  I dont want to feel like a princess, but I did want to look lovely and surprise my family and friends, without feeling an idiot.  You guided me in the right direction, listened to me, and found a dress that made me look slim and elegant, and one that I will feel confident to wear on the day.  Thank you.  Elin June 2011.

I was very surprised when visiting Savvy Cinderella as how many lovely gowns they have, and the choice for hiring or buying is astounding.  We had little time to prepare before the wedding, yet with the help of Sue, everything came together in one lovely enjoyable afternoon.   There is nothing ‘High Street’ about Savvy Cinderella, a personal service, professional advice and a setting so laid back and so much fun, I want to go again.  Janet R –  June 2011

We were recommended by a friend from work, who was very happy with her dress and accessories.  I was delighted with the choice of hiring when we came to you.  No one would have guessed we hired everything, yet it didnt make any difference to my daughter, she was thrilled with her dress, and not keeping it after the wedding made much more sense than packing it away.  A very sensible solution, and I have no regrets in hiring whatsover.  The service we received was not what we expected when we said we wanted to hire, we were treated so well and felt so special, an expensive shop would not have made us feel more so.  We decided to buy the veil as a keepsake after the wedding,  Angela T  June 2011

To Sue,  I wanted to write to thank you for my Prom Dress, I can’t wait for the Prom now, and I am in a dress that is my very own. I love the colour and style, and I love that it was made for me.  Thank you for all your help and advice, and making me a dress better than my dreams.  Keily  June 2011

I was really surprised by the set -up of Savvy Cinderella, a unique concept in a unique development,  yet private, attentive and specialised service, that we found invaluable.  I am looking forward to returning to collect my dress in September.  Mrs J.C  June 2011

Hi Sue,  as you know I had a dream dress, and a perfect day and all made possible because of you.  You moved mountains to help me after I came to you with a disaster dress I purchased from the internet, and I was so proud to walk down the aisle in my beautiful dress.  I know you went above an beyond what anyone would have expected, and I will never forget that, or you and your ‘aladins cave’.  Tamara June 2011

I got my dress, 3 bridesmaids dresses and a flowergirl, plus my mens hire  x 6  all for under £1500.  I could have spent treble that, but I went to Savvy Cinderella and saved on price, but got a service and quality that was priceless.  Thank you so much.  I am a very happy bride.  Emma June 2011

Hi Sue.  I felt incredible, beautiful and so happy – and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I had an amazing day, and I am only sad that I can not come back to see you again now it is all over.  Emma – June 2011

I can never thank Savvy Cinderella enough for all she did for me.  I felt like a million dollars on Saturday, the weather was perfect, and I felt very special.  That is all down to Savvy Cinderella, who made sure I had a dress that was perfect for me, in my budget, and with all the right accessories. I felt beautiful, and more importantly everytime I visted Savvy Cinderella I left feeling confident and encouraged.  Becks June 2011

Hi Sue.  A note to say how happy I am to have found you.  You have been so kind and patient, and I have felt very comfortable and at ease  when I am in your lovely studio.  You were highly recommended to me by 3 people, and they all said the same thing ,how lovely you are, and how welcoming and helpful.  They were all right, and I am so pleased to say I am in your very good hands.  I cant wait to come back for my final fitting. Roll on October!  Love, Sarah M.   May 2011

Hi Sue, Thank you –  I couldn’t have done it without you.  Anna  May 2011

I have been reading the testimonials, and cant think of anything to say that hasn’t been said already.  I have enjoyed every minute of my time spent at Savvy’s,  and it has been a positive and happy experience, which has made the build up to the wedding so much fun.  I want to do it all over again!   Hannah, May 2011

I visited Savvy Cinderella not knowing what to expect, but I was amazed at how many dresses they had, and how friendly and at ease everything was.  No pressure, just helpful advice. I have come away feeling very pleased at knowing I have my perfect dress, at an incredible price, and I was treated like I really mattered.  Thank you to Sue, for making everything such a pleasant experience.  Christine.  May 2011

Savvy Cinderella has been a brilliant find for me and my partner.  We have hired the dress, bridesmaid dresses and mens suits, and we have enjoyed being part of such a lovely, easy and laid back approach to the wedding.  Sue says weddings are as stressful as you want them to be, and she is right.  We have enjoyed all the planning, and look forward to our visits.  Jamie N –  May 2011

Hi Sue.  I have given your details to a friend at work, as she is looking for a dress.  I have told her how brilliant you were in helping me, and I am sure you will be able to guide her too.  We have had the photo’s now, and I will bring them over to show you next week if that is okay.  You are my fairy Godmother – thankyou for everything.  See you soon. Natalie.  May 2011

I went to Savvy Cinderella 6 months ago for my dress to hire, and I have been back on numerous occasions to choose bridesmaids dresses and accessories.  I spent in total £300 on hiring my dress and veil and tiara and jacket, and yet I feel as if I had spent thousands of pounds.  Always a personal service, always a pleasure and always fun.  I am getting married next Saturday, and I can’t wait to wear my beautiful dress.  Thank you Savvy Cinderella.  Becky – April 2011

Savvy Cinderella made my wedding day perfect.  From the moment I met Sue I knew she was the right person to help me choose my dress, and her advice and support has been very important to me.  I didn’t  buy my perfect dress from a shop, I choose the perfect dress with the help of someone who has become a friend.  I trusted Sue, as I didn’t have a clue what I was looking for, and everyone said I looked stunning, and confident on the day.  (I felt both!) .  Savvy Cinderella is not like any bridal shop I have ever been to.  The welcome you get is warm, the advice is sincere and the dresses are incredible.  I was immediately made to feel special, and every visit since, I have felt exactly the same, like I am the only bride that mattered.  Sue didn’t care about making a sale, she cared about finding me the right dress, and getting my whole look right.   I can never ever thank her enough for all she has done for me.   Natalie – April 2011

Thank you for helping me find the perfect wedding dress.  My mum, sister and I enjoyed my session trying on all the dresses at your studio and I am grateful for your good advice about styles and fitting.  The dress was perfect and looked so expensive, I couldn’t help but tell people how much it cost just to enjoy seeing the look of shock on their faces!  My husband also loved the dress – and the price!  Best wishes. Bethan  –  (I have seen the photo’s and Bethan looked incredible!  Sue x)

Hi Sue   I thought you would like to see a few of the hundreds of pics we have already been sent!  All the comments all day were about my stunning dress, veil and jacket. You are so right when you said maybe you are good at your job, well maybe not..I think you are brilliant, amazing, fantastic, super and fabulous! You made me feel like a million dollars and honestly I couldn’t have imagined a better dress! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking care of me through this quite daunting experience of selecting a dress to marry my soul mate.  I have forwarded these pictures to slimming world magazine. Feel free to use anything on your website/ blog etc. You made my day so amazingly special you have no idea! So you will see your dress in the next edition of the slimming world magazine. I hope I did you proud!  Lots of love and Best Wishes  Steph x x x  (p.s. When we get the professional pics in a few weeks time I will send them your way too)     Steph has been a delight to work with, and I am delighted that her day was so perfect, she deserves it.  I will watch out for the Sliming World Magazine, featuring my beautiful slinky and very sexy Steph.   Sue x  April 2011


Hi Sue, I would like to again offer you my most heartfelt thanks for all your help over the past 9 months or so.  Having read your Bridal Blog, I burst into tears and then phoned Mum to tell her to read it.  In the few hours that we spent in your company you have managed to sum me  (and my family up) exactly.  Yes, I was absolutely dreading looking for a wedding dress.  I had never imagined wearing a dress, am not a girly girl and being short and dumpy thought that getting a dress was exactly as you have said –  going to be a real chore.  But you made the whole experience easy, and more than that, an absolute joy. We managed to get all our bridal party kitted out from you, my dress, my Bridesmaid dresses and hired the suits for the Groom, Best man and both Dads and all for under £1000.  Amazing. Everyone who has seen the photographs have commented on my beautiful “classic/simple” dress and the beautiful colour of the bridesmaids dresses and jackets. I am now disappointed that it is all over, that I won’t be coming to see you again.   However I will be recommending you to friends and family, so that they can share the “Savvy” Experience and feel like a Cinderella marrying their Prince Charming just as I did.  Love Alison Cross. March 2001   –  Alison and her family have made my job very easy and great fun.  I wish her all the luck and love in the world.  Sue x

Hi Sue,  I had an amazing day, the weather was terrible, but everything else was perfect.  I loved my dress so much, and the men looked so handsome in their suits.  I wanted to especially thank you for all your hard work, you worked tirelessly to help me keep it all under budget, and yet I felt like a million quid!!!  Sarah B. March 2011.

Hi Sue.  With your help I hardly even looked pregnant. Thank you for all your help, and for keeping me calm throughout the whole build up.  I am not usually a stressed kind of girl, but weddings and pregnancy bring out the inner dragon.  Thank you for all your help once again. Mum loved her fascinator, and the flowergirls adored your dresses.  I wont see you again, but I will recommend you. I hope you enjoyed your holiday.  Kirsty J.  March 2011

Hi Sue,  Hope you are well and hope all the dress and suit arrived safely.  We would like to thank you for all your help with both my dress and accessories and my husbands’s suit.  Everybody liked your dress very much, it looked even more lovely on the day!!  I sent you some photos to see how it looked on the day – hope you’ll enjoy them.  Take care and I will pass on the message to all my friends about your shop.  Joon x

Evening Sue,  Hopefully you remember me, Susan Gilroy ( The RAF Lass)!!!! I have been meaning to email you and I apologise for not doing so sooner.
I just wanted to say a massive thankyou for your help in finding my perfect dress for my December 2010 Winter Wedding. The first day I came to see you I didnt know what to expect. I am a very private person and I was really pleased with your subtle, kind and informative approach when helping me choose the right dress. Your dress selection was far better than I could have imagined and I was shocked to actually find ‘The Dress’ that first visit.
I have to say that the service you provide in my opinion is out of this world. Not only do you offer superb quality fabrics and excellent value for money, but also a down to earth kind approach and honest opinion. On the big day, I was so comforable in every single way, so much so I kept my dress on all day and night!!! I have attached a couple of pictures for you to see. As you can see it truely was the happiest day of my life so far!! Feel free to use any of the photos for you testimonials. Please also pass on my thanks to your seamstress, as she has done a wonderful job with the alterations. Best Wishes for the Future. Susie  Feb 2011

My sincerest thanks to Susie for letting me use her lovely photo’s on this page.  Susie is as beautiful on the inside as she clearly is on the outside, and made my job very easy.  Wishing you all the best for your married life together.



Hi Sue, I wanted to email you to thank you for all your hard work yesterday.  I have been a total nightmare, and I am amazed at the fact you still want me in your studio.  You have  been so supportive and so kind helping me through not only my dress selection, but also the ‘wedding drama’ that I bring with me. You let me let off steam, and I always feel so much better when I have spent time with you.  I love my dress, and the veil is perfect, I would never have chosen that one, but it absolutely works, and sets the whole look I want.  I honestly think I would have gone crazy if I didn’t have your calming influence.  I will send you photo’s as soon as I get them,  – only 2 weeks to go now!!!  Tracy Feb 2011

Hi Sue.  I have showed everyone my photo’s of my new dress, and I wanted to thank you again.  As a PLUS SIZE(!!) bride, I was dreading dress shopping, but you made it easy and relaxing, and to be able to find more than 1 dress in my size to try on (22) was incredible.  You understand that bigger brides still want to have an enjoyable fun time trying on dresses, and you made everything so easy.  My mum was so impressed, as we had been to other places, and could only look at dresses. For her to see me in lots of different styles was very important to her, I think she felt cheated before that we weren’t able to have the same experience that size 10 brides have.  Mum sends her love, and we tell everyone how special you and your studio are.  Please tell everyone we travelled 3 hours to get to you, and it was worth every single minute of the journey.  Kelly.   February 2011.

Hello Lovely Lady.  THANK YOU for everything.  Great service, good fun, and enjoyable.  See you in May.   Kerry-Anne  February 2011

Sue, I have been married 12 hours, and I am still on cloud nine –  I am looking at my dress now, thinking I am the happiest bride in the world.  Night xxxx    (text message sent from newly married Caroline)

Good morning Sue.  Thanks for all your help and advice regarding the menshire on Sunday afternoon.  Its another big worry off our list,  I loved the suit and cant wait to see the men in them, and my lovely dress too.  Nina & James .January  2011

Hi Sue.  Thanks for all your help with my daughter on Saturday.  Prom dress shopping has been a nightmare, but you made it easy, and now she will have the dress she wanted all along, but didn’t seem to exist.  She loves that is will be custom made to her requirements, and I love the price, and knowing that the search is over.  You have a lovely set up there in the countryside, we really enjoyed our morning with you.  See you in June – dont forget to let me know about the jewellery.  Anika January 2011

Hi Sue, I just wanted to say a very BIG thank you for your time on Saturday. You have a lovely collection of dresses and the drive up to you was worth every second.  Leena – Twickenham  January 2011

Hi Sue . I love your blog, I love your website, and now I have been to you – I love your studio!  Its quite an unusual set up you have, but my goodness it works!  A studio environment is so much more personal, and I felt fantastic.  Thank  you for finding my dress for me, but I had a feeling before we even met that you would have it there with you.  I am so glad you did, and it was worth the journey to get to you.  Angela. January 2011.  Essex

Hi Sue.  Thank you for being so helpful.  I was really worried as I had no expectations on what I would like or suit, and you guided me brilliantly. I feel relieved as its another box ticked on the wedding to do list and it was the only thing that I wasn’t looking forward to as I thought I wouldn’t find anything to suit me!  Only a few more things to do now and it’ll be just a matter of trying to lose more weight! We’ll see you again soon.  Thanks again,  Bev x  January 2011  Peterborough

Sue, Everything was perfect – thank you!  I can’t thank  you enough for all you did.  You went above and beyond – you made my day even more special. Happy New Year, Anna January 2011

Hello Sue.  When I read your testimonials I knew I wanted to come to you, to see if they were true if nothing else!  I had a feeling I would find my dress with you, even though I had been everywhere looking and tried on 100’s.  I was right, I did find my dress with you, and I am so happy.  I enjoyed my time with you so much, and found you an absolute delight.  Good Luck for 2011, you have a unique business, a unique set up, and it all works perfectly.  Alison December 2010.

Hi Sue.  I wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much I appreciated how you were with my daughter.  She wasn’t looking forward to the dress shopping, but you made her feel at ease.  You have such lovely dresses, and in sensible sizes.  It was heartbreaking before we came to you, and she felt humiliated every time.  Now, thanks to you, she has found her dress, could try it on in the right size, and she felt so relaxed. As her mum I knew she would be a beautiful bride, but coming from you, it made her believe it for the first time.  It was worth the journey coming to you, and I certainly will recommend you to all our friends and colleagues.  Happy Christmas, I hope you have a lovely time with your family.  Susan.  December 2010.

Hello Sue.  Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful. Diana. December 2010.

Hi Sue – Pregnant Bridesmaids!  How freaky you should say that when we were there, and then it happens.  I cant be angry with her, but I was stressing, so thank you for your ideas, you have helped calm me down a bit.  Enjoy your Christmas break, see you in 2011.  Janice.L  December 2010.

Hi Sue, The coat is on its way to you now, you saved the day –  who would have thought it would have snowed that much!!!  Some guests did drop out because of the travelling, but it was so good and we had a great time.  I will send the photo’s when I get them,  but the coat really was a life saver, and so beautiful.  Thank you again, God Bless you, Nicola S December 2010.

Hi Sue.  You really did so much for me to make sure my day was special, and it really really was.  I could never have done it without you.  You are very thoughtful and very perceptive, and most of all very professional.  I hope you have a wonderful christmas break with your family, and enjoy the time off.  You deserve it.  AnnaMaria.  December 2010

Hi Sue.  It came today, it is beautiful and perfect and I cant thank you enough. Dana. 2010

Hi Sue.  We were told to come to you as you have beautiful dresses, and are a joy to be with.  We are so glad we did.  I can’t wait for the Spring to wear my beautiful dress.  We both wish you a Happy Christmas, and a very prosperous 2011 – I am sure you will have.  Amanda. December 2010

Hi Sue, The day was perfect, and my dress was amazing.  I am glad I listened to you regarding the veil, you do know what you are talking about.  Take care Sue, and all the best wishes with your lovely business.  I hope the Movie people were delighted with the dress you were preparing when I came to collect mine. Have a lovely Christmas and 2011.   Jacks. December 2010

Hello Savvy Cinderella Sue, Thank you for being so thoughtful and so kind, I really appreciated the wrap you put in with my dress, I really needed it with the snow, as it was so cold.  It was really lovely of you to think about it.  The dress should be back with you now, I looked after it very well, as it was so special to me.  Thank  you again.  Heather. December 2010.

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for everything you did for me this weekend.  I wanted to come to somewhere I could get advice, not be pushed into something and find a beautiful dress at a great price, and I got everything I wanted with you.  My Friend Sarah recommended you, and she was right.  I thought she was over singing your praises, but she was right, and now I cant stop telling everyone about Savvy Cinderella.  I really will never be able to thank you enough for how you were with me.  Linda M – December 2010

Thank you so much for this morning.  I had forgotten just how Kate’s eyes sparkle when she is so happy and she was extremely happy with the choice of her dress this morning.  The feeling of relief, relaxation and tension just drained away from the whole room!  As for the veil, that is an added bonus. Personally, I think a three quarter length sleeve bolero would be more than useful on what could be a chilly and windy April day – that’s for me to work on!  Many, many thanks, you deserve your success!  Jane.  November 2010.

Why aren’t all bridal stores like Savvy Cinderella??  I am glad they aren’t because going to you was a breath of fresh air!  I have never had so much fun in my life as I did last weekend.  You were brilliant, and made the whole wedding dress experience even better than we imagined.  I will recommend you to  many of my friends, because you get a first class service, top class dress and the best prices ever.  Aimee November 2010.

Thank you for everything you have done.  I couldn’t have been happier after I left your studio.  I am very pleased I came to you I was worried as you are out of the way a bit, but that is all part of the charm and experience you offer. I felt very special and very comfortable with you.  Tammie L.  November 2010.

Hello Sue.  You have been so lovely,  so helpful and so full of happiness, advice and I have loved every minute of  my time with you.  I am almost sad to be getting married now, as it means my time with you is over.  I wish you all the best for the future, any bride coming to you will have a lovely time and surely find a beautiful dress at excellent prices.  I have been to lots of bridal stores, but you are unique in so many ways.  Daliah   November 2010

Hi Sue.  Please put me on your testimonials page!  The customer service I have experienced at Savvy Cinderella was amazing, Sue not only found me my perfect dress at short notice,  but also went out of her way on every single thing she did.  If I had been spending £2,500 on a dress I could not have expected more, but I spent £300 on everything!   the whole experience at Savvy Cinderella was priceless and perfect.  I can not praise Sue and her business highly enough.  Jenna.  November 2010

Thank you so much Sue for all your help. We’re getting married in the St Thomas a Becket Church, and you’re more than welcome to come along to see us all together in our dresses and then to the evening reception.  I’m gonna put your business cards up at work and I already know of at least 5 girls who will be using you when they get married!!!  You’ve made dealing with 5 very different bridesmaids so enjoyable. Kind Regards Gem x

Dear Sue, Just a note to say thank you very much for being so helpful, patient and nice during my dress picking exercise.  Wish you and family and business all the best!  Love Julia  (Julia is a beautiful girl with the sweetest nature, who came to borrow dresses for a photo shoot in Paris)

Dear Sue, Thank you so much for making my wedding experience so easy.  I have so many compliments and it all looks great in the photos.  thanks again,  Kirsten T.  November 2010

To Sue, Thank  you so much for being so helpful from start to finish, our dress was truely amazing. Everyone commented on how lovely it was, so hopefully you’ll have some more customers. Thanks again. Alison – October 2010

Thank you so much for your time and effort, and very astute perception on Tuesday when it came to selecting a gown for my special day. Having been to the ceremony venue, Shuttleworth Mansion and settled on the Ballroom for the event, it seems the dress is the perfect attire for such a grand place. Look forward to our next meeting. With kind regards ,Linda  October 2010

Hi sue.  Can you pass on my thanks to Dyll for all her hard work for the alterations on my dress and bridesmaid dresses, and a big thank you to you both for helping me make my day so special.  Fiona B. October 2010

I wanted to let everyone know that Savvy Cinderella is different from any other bridal shop you have ever experienced.  The owner, Sue is kind, welcoming and knowledgeable and the premises quiet, relaxing and very private.  I am what is known as a plus sized bride, and I was dreading wedding dress shopping. The private surroundings that Savvy Cinderella offers was just what I needed.  I wanted to be in an environment that was totally uninterrupted by other people because I am a big bride. When I left Sue, I realised I was A BRIDE, and my size didn’t even come into it.  That feeling alone was priceless.  I felt special rather than different and for the first time since I got engaged, I am looking forward to walking down the aisle.

Hi Sue.  What a joy to come to you.  Private and relaxed, miles from anywhere, but SOOO worth the drive.  You are unique in every way, and I am going to miss you so much. You have become part of my wedding experience, and a proper friend too.  Whenever I leave your studio  I feel calm, relaxed and very very happy, and now I am sad I wont be coming back to see you again – until I bring my engaged friends.  Linda G.  October 2010

Hi Sue, My veil came this morning, and as promised is a perfect match for my dress,  Please can you pass on my thanks to Elizabeth Dickens for me for their prompt work at making me such a lovely veil at such stupidly short notice.  I wish I had come to you sooner, and can never thank you enough for helping me out.  I thought all veils were the same, but they are not.  Elizabeth Dickens are far superior, and my dress will look complimented now, rather than spoilt by that other thing I had ordered off of the internet.  I will send you pictures of the day.  Fran.  October  2010

Sue said to me “No-one will know you hired your dress.”  Well they do now, because we told everyone. I was so pleased to be wearing a beautiful gown, and so thrilled to be able to say I was  hiring it, and I wanted all my guests to know I hired it, so we even mentioned Savvy Cinderella in our speeches.  Even though Sue wasn’t there at our wedding, we wanted all our guests to know her contribution to our day was really appreciated, and meant the bridesmaids and groomsmen were all looking wonderful too, in outfits that co-ordinated perfectly.  We even sent Sue cake as a thank you.  Diana B.  October 2010.

Hi  Sue.  My dress was perfect, and my day incredible, and I wanted to thank you for everything you did for me.  Buying my dress from you saved me £500, which has meant I can go on honeymoon with more spending money! lol.  You have a lovely little business there, in the middle of nowhere, and I have told everyone about you.  I wanted to thank you for all your help in helping me find my dress, but also for making me feel as if finding the right one really mattered to you.  You have such patience, and never once made me feel as if I was being a pain, (and I know I was!)  Thank you Sue.   Ps.  My mum will be bringing in my Sisters dress for your Zambian Charity.  I hope they can make use of it.  Katie-Jane  October 2010 Thank you for your kinds words, and for the donation. Please pass on my thanks to your sister, it will make a difference to someone’s wedding day  in Zambia. Sue x

I hired my wedding dress, wedding coat and tiara and veil, and my shoes from Savvy Cinderella.  £450 for everything, brand new, and perfect in every way. I went to Savvy Cinderella 4 days before my wedding, and I found everything I needed, and hired the lot!   I have no regrets about hiring, it was perfect, and meant I could have everything I wanted, for a fraction of the usual price.

I purchased my veil online from Savvy Cinderella.  It arrived within 48 hours, and was perfect.  The same veil was in a store local to me for £180 –  £130 more than Savvy Cinderella’s price.  I love Elizabeth Dickens veils – and I love Savvy Cinderella’s prices.  Samantha October 2010.

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work from begining to end, everyone loved the dress.  You have beautiful dresses, and hiring was the best option for me.  I would never have had such a wonderful dress or experience if I hadn’t come to you.  I had a horrible experience in another store, because my budget was low, and was told I wouldn’t find a dress anywhere other than Ebay for the price I wanted.  But I did, and it was far superior to what that shop had anyway!  Thank you Savvy Cinderella, my day was perfect because of all your help.  Ellen  October 2010

I purchased my dress from Sue at Savvy Cinderella, and the comments from my wedding in early October 2010 were amazing. The price was fantastic, the dress was perfect, and the customer service Sue gave me was excellent. She advised me where to go to get the best prices for cleaning my dress afterwards, and where the best silk flowers were on the internet, and even helped me with the jewellery.  I was so impressed with the service, that I hired all our bridesmaid dresses, and then I sent my groom in to hire his suits. My mum even hired her hat there too.  So our entire day was courtesy of all the hard work and effort Savvy Cinderella provided. Thank you Sue.   Jo.S  October 2011.

Hello Sue.  I wanted you to put my words on your testimonials page, because you made my day so fantastic.  I had the dress of my dreams, and I felt amazing. All your help and patience was very much appreciated, and I hope your business goes from strength to strength.  Julia October 2010

I came back to Savvy Cinderella because Sue gives the most expert advice and customer service. She is honest and I respected her and valued her input when choosing my dress. I did go to other stores after my first visit, but not only did I know I wanted the dress I had seen at Savvy Cinderella’s, but I knew I wanted to buy it from Sue.  No-one made  me feel more at ease or more comfortable than when I was at Savvy Cinderella’s.  Gemma B. October 2010

Hi Sue.  I have told everyone about you, expect lots of appointments to be booked from all my friends getting married in 2011.  Thank you so much, I could not have wanted for anything more.  Anne  October 2010

Hi Sue

Hopefully you have received all the items back that we hired for our wedding.  Sorry we haven’t been in touch until now,  however work has been really busy, catching up after having some time off. Anyway our wedding was really beautiful and romantic on the 14th October at  Sandals in Antigua.  My dress was perfect for the day and  we would like to thank you for all your help, especially with the  extended hire arrangements, excellent customer service. I  have enclosed a couple of pictures that you can use if you wish for your website. Once again thanks for contributing to making our wedding day special. Best wishes Teresa & Paul B. October 2010  -( Thank you for the lovely photos Teresa, Sue x)


Hi Sue,  Thank you so much for the wonderful service you gave us when we came on Saturday.  Hopefully we can send you some pictures to put on your website ( if they are any good ). Best regards Teresa  September 2010

Dear Sue, I must admit I was glad to see that my dress was kept fine after 9 hours of party, but my feet and my shoes looked horrid and dusty. I listened your advise and I bought a nice pair of shoes for dancing but not expensive.  Thank you for your lovely words. I do hope Reading will offer us more opportunities in making friends and I job for me soon. Good luck with your business !!! You were the best choice for me in coming and choosing a dress. ps: I will continue to read your blog, you write so natural and funny in the same time. Warm regards, Violeta   September 2010

Hi Sue, Had the best day of my life and no the arm was fine, some pics with it, some pics without… everyone loved the dress so that was obviously a good time. Will send you some pics in the near future but thank you for all your help with the wedding dress, made my life a lot easier as, as you know I hate dresses. Mum had a great time to… the whole day just went so well.  Katie  September 2010  (Katie broke her arm just before her wedding day)

Hi Sue.  The veil arrived and saved the day. Thank you so much, and thank everyone at Elizabeth Dickens for me, I know it must have been stressful for you dealing with a panicked bride, but you were brilliant, calming and put my mind at rest.  I should have come to you first, then I wouldn’t have had such a nightmare with the veil not matching the dress.  Good Luck.  Andrea Sept 2010

Hi Sue.  Could you add me to your testimonials please. I want everyone to know how easy going, how knowledgeable and how relaxed and fun it is coming to your studios. Hiring was a great choice for me, and made everything really simple.  You are a Fairy Godmother, and Dyl is a magician.  Please thank her for me, she was lovely and patient throughout, and I appreciate all your help. I have sent you a photo for your album, Susi Sept. 2010.

Hello Sue.  The dress arrived safely, and we had a wonderful day.  Everyone commented about the dress, and I felt like a princess.  Thank you for all your help, I will always recommend you, as you were so helpful, and my dress was perfect. I hope business continues to be good for you – you certainly made a difference to me.  Rebecca.  Sept 2010

Hi Sue.  I wanted to thank you for all the time and patience  you have, especially when I couldn’t make up my mind. I loved all the dresses, and that made it difficult to make a decision, especially as my family loved all of them too.  You made me feel relaxed and calm, and took away the pressure that I had heaped onto myself.  Amy. Sept 2010

Sue, I was a Bridezilla, and you tamed me.  Thank you, and sorry if I was a bit crazy at times, it is good that you were always there for me to blow off steam, when my problems were nothing to do with the dress, just the usual wedding stress.  Take care, and I hope you continue to go from strength to strength.  Wendy. Sept 2010.

Hi Sue.  Everything was perfect, and I advertised your business to everyone who asked where I got my beautiful dress, I will send you some photo’s as soon as I get them.  Jenny Sept 2010.

Sue – Bloody marvelous.  Tania Sept 2010

Hi Sue.  I just wanted to tell you how brilliant everything was.  I could not have had a better day, and my dress was amazing.  Everyone said they couldn’t believe I could look like this,  having only seen me in a uniform all these years.  Those curves were mine, and I needed someone like you to show me I had them.  warmest regards, and see you next year with my sister for her wedding.  Ang. Sept 2010

Hi Sue.  What can I say other than THANK YOU!!!!!  Sharon.  August 2010

I called Savvy Cinderella for advice, and even though I could not get to the shop, the lady there went out of her way to help me with my problem.  My veil arrived today – and is perfect, just what I wanted, and most of all cheaper than I was quoted any where else, but top quality.  Anna D. August 2010.

Hi Sue.  I wanted to say the biggest ‘thank you’ ever.  Your level of customer service is second to non, and you really put yourself out for me.  I will be recommending you to all my friends who will be getting married. THANK YOU. Gemma A – August 2010

I am so impressed with Savvy Cinderella.  The help and guidance was excellent, and the dress I chose was MY dress.  I had so many to choose from, but I knew as soon as I tried it on that it was to be MINE.  I wouldn’t have even considered that style, but Sue told me it would suit and flatter my shape, and she was right.  I look beautiful – lol.  Karen B. August 2010

Morning Sue.  What can I say about my day it was fantastic and I lost count of how many complements I got about my beautiful dress !  I just can’t thank you enough x.

Carol x  August 2010

Keep up the good work, and I will recommend you to anyone looking for a special dress. Sue August 2010

Hi Sue.  Thank you so much for all the time spent on helping me. I couldn’t choose straightaway because I never expected to find so many that I loved.

Sue, I just wanted to say how over the moon we were with everything.

Hi Sue.  I loved my dress, I loved my veil and I loved my entire day, all made possible by you.  Pregnant and with a small budget, you helped me get everything I needed without any worries or stress, just 2 weeks before the wedding.  Please thank Dyll for me, she was brilliant with the alterations. You are a great team, and I have told everyone about you.  Love Hannah. August 2010   – Hi Hannah, let me know when your baby gets here, Good Luck. Sue x

Hi Sue, I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me, from start to finish you have been so helpful, supportive, and so relaxing to be around.  You made everything easy for me, seeing me at short notice, late nights and calming me down when I needed to take a deep breath. You have gone above and beyond, and I have enjoyed my trips to you.  Who would have thought I would have got such a beautiful dress, at an amazing price, from the middle of nowhere.  Your set-up is unique and made me feel very special.  I loved my veil, and I will buy that please, as you were right, it is good to have a keep-sake when hiring the dress.  Let me know how much, and I (well Dad) will send you a cheque.  Love and recommends, Nat.

Hi Sue.  I can’t stop talking about you. My own Fairy Godmother @ Savvy Cinderella. You worked your magic on me, and my day was a dream come true. I was a princess for a day, but you treated me like a queen every time I came to you.  Thank you for your Betty Bridal recommendation too, and Sarah’s Flowers.  Bless you, MRS Daviesxx  May 2010

Hi Sue.  As an older bride I was terrified of getting it wrong.  You instantly put me at ease, and gave me confidence. Thank you. Jenny May 2010

Sue. the veil arrived today, and is exceptional.  Could you please thank Elizabeth Dickens for me, I am so pleased with what they have done.  I would recommend you to anyone. Ordering online was really easy, but know you were there for advice made it much more reassuring. Thank you.  E.I. May 2010

Hi Sue. Well, what can I say other than thank you.  You knew I was dreading coming to see you, as I hadn’t a clue, and you made me so relaxed, and found me the dress that was perfect for me.  I felt so relaxed and easy with you, that I want to be able to come back again (I won’t though, I am sticking with this one – dress and husband).  Thank you again, you really worked so hard for me. Hayley May 2010

Hi sue. I wanted to thank you for everything you did for me, and to let your other customers know what a fantastic service you offer.  I had so many compliments about my dress, and no one could believe I actually hired it. You made the whole event so much fun, and I always looked forward to coming to see you. I will miss you, but would love to stay in touch.  A truly lovely experience working with you.  Sandra.xx   May 2010

Hi Sue. Thank you so much, it was all wonderful. Ali  May 2010

Hello Sue. Thank you for everything, you made the whole experience special. Everyone loved my dress, and the veil was perfect. I will send you photo’s as soon as they are available. Take care, N.V. May 2010

Hi Sue,  I wanted to tell you about Saturday – it was the best day of my entire life, and I looked and felt wonderful.  Thank you for everything you did for me, I will never be able to thank you for your patience. Please thank Dyll for me, she really is a star.  I will definitely recommend you to all my engaged friends.  Thank you so much. S.P  May 2010

Hi Sue, We had the most fantastic day on Saturday and I have now kissed (literally) my gorgeous dress goodbye and parcelled it up.  Hope it gets back to you ok – I had so many compliments about it. Will come up with photos soon. Z.F May 2010

Hi Sue  I just wanted to say thank you again for everything – I’m so glad you liked the rose.  My dress was absolutely beautiful and I felt perfect in it all day, I was just sad to take it off! Hope it wasn’t too dirty, I know it was quite grubby on the bottom, sorry. Thank you for everything – you were absolutely amazing at every step of the way and made everything so easy for me – I will of course send you a photo and will be recommending you to absolutely everyone who will listen. All best wishes  Heather May 2010

Hello Sue.  You will never know what you have meant to me, my wedding dress was my biggest worry, and you helping me to design a dress that suits my shape has been invaluable. You understood my concerns, and I felt very comfortable with your approach.  Big girls like myself don’t have many options,  and I felt almost a second class citizen, but you were warm and welcoming, and gave us the personal attention I needed. You also gave me the confidence to say what a really wanted.  I will be recommending you to all my friends, as I learnt about you from a friend who also came to you.  I have a beautiful dress, made just for me, and I will never be able to thank you enough.  J.  April 10.

THANK YOU ever so much for the help with the Elizabeth Dickens (Toni) veil. I did not expect yourself or the Elizabeth Dickens team to go out of their way to make my veil especially. I have just telephoned my Mum and explained to her what you have done for me she was in tears and also wishes to thank you and the Elizabeth Dickens team for what they are doing.  I know it sounds silly to some people but as soon as I had seen that veil I knew that it was the one for me. The detail was what I was looking for and yes it has my name spelt the same way so it was a sign. I wish you all the luck in the future and will be recommending you to my friends if they ever need anything. ONCE AGAIN a BIG THANK YOU Toni April 2010

Sue, Thank you. Everything was perfect. Photo’s attached. Mum should be bringing you cake when she returns the dress! I would recommend you to anyone hiring or buying a dress, but hiring has been perfect for me. The best decision I ever made.  Helen.  April 2010

Hi Sue.  Please use my comments for your new clients. Good luck with the kittens.    ‘I had chosen my dress in another store, then came to Savvy Cinderella for my bridesmaid dresses.  I fell in love with the Della dress, and it was so much better priced that I decided to buy it there and then.   I saved £200 on the same dress by buying it from Savvy Cinderella, which paid for my bridesmaid dresses’  Rachel E.   April 2010

Hi Savvy Cinderella – lol.  Thanks Sue for finding me my perfect dress, and in my budget, I can never tell you how much it means to me to get such a lovely dress.  My budget is limited, but hiring the dress has made everything much more manageable, and what is more, I love it.  I was recommended that I came to you, from my mum’s hairdresser, and I am so glad I did. You really made a difference to my day.  C.Y. April 2010

Thanks for the veil, the despatch time was quicker than I thought. I appreciate the tip about the colour, you were right, and it looks great, I can’t wait to wear it now. Roll on July 15th. H.W  April 2010

Hello Sue.  You and Dil were brilliant, and I had a great time last week.  My dress looks amazing, and I am so pleased with the alterations, and the veil is a perfect match. Please tell Dil for me how much we appreciated her help too. Mum wants to come again for a cup of tea and a giggle, when we are next passing, A.P April 2010   – Any time, Sue x

Dear Sue, thank you all your help yesterday, I felt so special, and so relaxed.  I was amazed how easy it was, and how relaxing it really was, I was dreading choosing my dress, but it was a pleasure, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks for letting me take photo’s.  We went to the garden centre for lunch, which was lovely, and can’t wait to come back to collect the dress. G.O.  April 2010

Just to say a big thank you for getting the veil to me so quickly – I absolutely love it – had my first emotional ‘bride to be moment’ trying it on in the bathroom! Amy – April 2010

Hi Sue, Just got off the phone to my mum and the dress has arrived!!! Yippee. I cant wait to get home. :) Thanks a lot for everything.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx   C. April 2010

Hi Sue, Well, I’m now Mrs B!!  Saturday was the best day ever and everyone loved the dress.  Here are a few pics.  I’ll make sure the dress is packaged up for tomorrow. Thanks for everything. T.K. April 2010

Hello Sue, The  veil has arrived, and is better than I remembered.  I will recommend you to all my friends, and have put a link on my face-book for you.  Thank you so much for such good advice, and fast service. April 2010

Hi Sue, The veil arrived safely this morning and is perfect, ‘Thank you’.  I will certainly recommend you to anyone.  Please thank Elizabeth Dickens for their help and advice.  Antique white is a perfect match for the diamond white dress, you were right to advise me not to go with the white.  Thank you so much for everything you did.  March 2010

Hi Sue.  Journey home was easy, thanks for instructions.  I can’t stop smiling I am so happy.  Thank you for everything you did for me.  It was a long journey, but so worth it.  If we can parcelforce the dress back, that will be fantastic.  Thank you so much for all you did,  your dresses are beautiful, the tiara’s amazing and the service you offer was brilliant.  I have never felt confident about my figure, but you made me feel amazing.  You know your stuff!   See you soon x  Angela March 2010

Hi Sue. I am so glad I came to you. Emma told me you were fantastic, but I had no idea how incredible the day would turn out to be.  You are a star, and I can’t thank Emma enough for telling me about  you.  High recommendation indeed!  Will see  you in June, can’t wait until then. Can you hold the veil for me? I want mum to see it all.  Thank you.  N.J  March 2010

Dearest Sue, You have been fantastic, and I can’t believe how helpful you have been.  I didn’t think I would ever be able to afford such a wonderful dress, but hiring everything has made my dream wedding a reality.  Thank you for picking me up from the station.  You offer such a wonderful service, and you made me feel really special.  You certainly knew what would suit me, and I value your honest approach. C.O.  March 2010

Hi Sue.  I wish I could get married every year!  You have been a joy and I consider you a friend who helped make my day extra special. I will keep in touch, and will always recommend you. H.A. March 2010

‘Welcoming, warm and understanding,’ –  thank you so much Sue,  you made the day so special.  It was a long journey, but worth it.  ‘P’ loved her dress, and I can’t thank you enough for putting her at ease, and helping her in the way you did.  I have already recommended you to my friend, and I think she will  be coming to see you in April.  Thanks a million x  S.A. March 2010

heya, just thought id send a quick message to let you know that i have decided to hire the della from you. it is a stunning dress and i think it will look even more stunning than i remember it on the day. thankyou for all your help on saturday, i had great fun tryin all the dresses and not being pushed into making the decision, you listened to me when i said what i was looking for and understood me when i said i didnt like certain dresses and why. it was a very enjoyable experience and i will recommend you to anyone looking to buy or hire in the future.  Maria March 2010


Thanks a lot for all your help yesterday. It was greatly appreciated. You made us feel so welcome and we both felt so comfortable. We are both still smiling about our dresses and cant wait for the big day!! Look forward to hearing from you soon  Kind Regards.  A & S.

Hi Sue,   I wanted to tell you how it all went on Saturday. It was perfect, and we couldn’t have been  more proud of her.  She looked stunning, (pics attached) and everyone commented on how beautiful she was.  You were  right about her dress choice, she looked natural and relaxed, but so elegant.  Her dad couldn’t stop staring at her, and James was thrilled.  She took our breath away.  If it is still okay with you we would like to keep the dress, her dad says we need the evidence to prove she actually wore a dress!  I will speak to you about it on Thursday when we return the other bits and bobs, and will be making another appointment in November for Kate’s wedding next year.  lol.  –  See you Thursday.   Mrs Sally B  2010

Morning Sue.  Thank you for everything.  I can’t stop smiling, and will be recommending you to future brides.  I never believed trying on dresses would be such fun and so relaxing.  You really made me feel wonderful, and to think I was so worried about making the journey to you.  I could not be happier with my dress, my veil and my shoes, but most of all I am so happy that everything was such a great experience, and I got to share it with my mum and nan.  It was more than finding a dress, it was a wonderful day which has made the wedding seem more real.  Anne L –  February 2010

Hi Sue, I wanted to contact you to say thank you so much for Sunday. We all had such a fun afternoon and I appreciated your help and support hugely.  Dresses are not my thing, but the environment you have created and your approach took the stress out of the process and put me at ease. I have already highly recommended you to two of my friends who have just got engaged and are to be married in 2011.  Kelly Feb 2010


Hi Sue, Sorry it has taken me a few days to get back to you, it has been super crazy at work this week! We all had such a fantastic time on Sunday and it was all I was hoping it would be so thank you so much for the time and effort you put into helping us!  I’ve already recommended you to several friends so no problem with putting my comments up on your website!!  Shona Feb 2010

Hello Sue,  I wanted to thank you for everything you did for us, I recommend you to everyone, whether they are getting married or not! lol.  I am so excited to have found my dress, and can’t believe I have got everything I wanted, including the bridesmaids dresses and my shoes from one place.  Thank you. I love it and can’t wait to get married. Helen January 2010

Hi Sue,  I wanted to say thank you for the time you spent with us, and the advice you gave.  We had a lovely afternoon with you, and I am so pleased with the dress.  I haven’t decided on the bridesmaids yet, it’s still between the Kyla and Katie, but I am waiting to speak to the girls this weekend to decide on the colour, then the dresses.  Thanks again, especially for fitting us in a short notice, I feel much happier now we have my dress, and so much more relaxed as you didn’t rush me to make a decision.  Have a lovely weekend,  Karen G.  xx  January 1010

Hi Sue, Just wanted to say thankyou very much for your time and patience on Tuesday evening – ‘L’ enjoyed herself so much and came away thinking she had found her dress and feeling really good about herself. It made all the difference that you allowed her the time to look at the different options without any hard sell which reassured her I think. We will call back in towards the end of the month when you let me know the rest of the new stock is in so she can make her final decision. To be honest, I think her decision is made. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Claire – January 2010

Hi Sue,  I wanted to tell you how well it all went. The weather was dreadful, but it didn’t matter, and the photo’s are perfect.  I will send you some to show your new clients.  It was a perfect Christmas wedding, and everyone looked beautiful, thanks to you for all  your help and advice.  Hiring the bridesmaid dresses was the best option possible, as I could never have had so many bridesmaids if I hadn’t.  Good Luck for 2010.  Mrs S. –  January 2010.

Sue, Thank you so much for today, I was not looking forward to shopping for a dress with Amanda, but you made the experience really enjoyable. She is so happy with the dress we have chosen, and I think you were absolutely right  about the veil.  Thank you for the tip on the  shoes, I will let you know how we get on.  I am looking forward to seeing you again in April for the fitting.  I am so thrilled we found you.  Thank you again.  Maureen C.  January 2010

I cannot praise Sue highly enough here!  I was in the middle of wedding planning meltdown and had a dress crisis! Sue fitted me in last minute and late at night to fit around my working day. The level of service was exceptional. Sue is helpful, friendly and honest! It is so nice to find a personal approach to choosing ‘the’ dress and not be met with profit making department stores. I would, and of course already have, recommend Sue and Savvy Cinderella to any future bride to be.  Heather January 2010

Hi Sue, Thank you so so so so soooooooooo much for yesterday!!! I havent stopped smiling since :) and I had a worry free sleep last night!hehe  Cant wait for the wedding day now……is it bad Im more excited about my dress than the actual wedding 😉  Claire. December 09

I wanted to thank you for yesterday – it was brilliant.  Thank you for all your help.  I can’t wait to be married now.  My mind is at rest now the dress is sorted.  J.L. November 09

Morning Sue, Thanks for the lovely time we had with you on Saturday, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I love the dress I have decided to go with – too many lovely dresses to choose from!  I will be back for bridesmaid dresses in January, and will probably hire those too.   I will certainly be recommending you to my friends. Mol Nov 09

Dear Sue, Thank you for all your help.  I will recommend you and your company to everyone.  I felt special and the service you gave me and mum was superb.  The posh shops couldn’t compete with you on price, quality or service. Mum didn’t want high pressure selling,  and you gave us a relaxed and informative advice.  Thank you so much once again, we will be back for the bridesmaids dresses when we know exactly how many we are having – we can have more now we saved so much on the dress.   See you soon. Shell.  November 09.

Hey Sue, I just wanted to let you know that the veil was perfect.  I saved nearly £75 buying it from you, and everyone thought it was spectacular. It looks great in the photo’s that we have seen.  I will send you the official photo’s soon.  Please thank everyone at Elizabeth Dickens for making it for me at such short notice, I really appreciate the trouble they and you went to.

Hi Sue.  Well what a day!!  It was fab, went really quickly but very smoothly. All the dresses were perfect and everyone loved them. Am sending a few pics that family took for you to see. Can’t believe it is all over L  Hope your leg is mending ok. Thanks so much for the excellent time we had with you, wish you were a shop we can revisit but I am hopping I won’t need to.  Maybe in about 5 years for School Prom!  Ever need  a recommendation from me  I would do one with flying colours…Take care. Jo  November 09

I tried on a dress for £1800 in a local bridal store, with a veil for £300.  I came to Savvy Cinderella and got an equally perfect and beautiful dress for £435, and the veil was over £150 cheaper too.   I love my dress, regardless of the price, but the customer service, the relaxed atmosphere and no pressure advice you gave made the day extra special. I have extra money for the honeymoon now, so we have upgraded our hotel.  Thank you so much Sue, look after your leg!   VickyN.  Nov 09

Hi Sue,  Just wanted to say many thanks for sending the veil.. it arrived on Thursday and is absolutely beautiful.  Thanks again for all your help.  Liz  2 November 09

Hi Sue, I just wanted to say thank you once again last night- it was fabulous to meet you and I (we) can’t WAIT to come back and also can’t wait to choose THE dress etc!! lol
I can not stop thinking about the ones that I did try on- absolutely amazing !! Also to note- I Love the blogs on your website! I can’t stop reading them :) I love the way you write- you should write a book ! Found it really interesting about Prince Charles 1st. Mum and I often find it incredible to think that he used to pass through the fens on his way back down to Oxford area and NOW we know about the whole Manea thing?! Wowzers! Hope to see you again soon. K.L. 30 October 09

Thank you Sue, so very much. The relief of having all the dresses sorted is a massive weight off my mind!!   Again thank you so much. Your shop is amazing and you are so lovely – I will be sure to recommend you! I just can’t wait to wear it now!!! (Heather, October 09)

Thank you for yesterday. Your shop is amazing.  I absolutely adore the dress, you have such a beautiful selection but that one was definitely the one for me. Thank you so much for all your advice and help yesterday. (B –  October 09)

Hi Sue, Sorry it has taken me so long to contact. Honeymoon then the first week back at work. I just want to thank you so very much for all the help and fantastic service you gave me. My dress was perfect! The day was perfect! I could not have wished for anything better.  It was due to the wonderful customer care of people like you that made all the difference! I will be strongly recommending you and sincerely wish you every success in business as you most certainly do derserve it! Shayne Canham nee Chamberlainx x x

I  will get you a pic of the dress so you can display but if you want to go on the site you can see. Print this and make sure any future customers read this.

Dear Sue, Just a quick note from us to say thank you for all your work with Karla’s dress.  The day went really well, we managed to duck in and out of the heavy showers, so that was good and the photographer was able to get pictures of them in the gardens. Karla looked absolutely gorgeous, smiling the whole day and I am sure  when she returns from honeymoon she will send you a couple of photos. Many thanks again, you were brilliant.  Wishing you every success in the future. Regards, Beanie & Tony  25 August 09

Hello Sue, Thank you so much for today you were absolutely lovely and made me feel great!  The dress I brought to you needs burning (ha ha) but thank you for trying to help. I will be sure to send pictures for you. Thank you again and take care. I am so excited now!  Tara x    3 August 09

We were really impressed with your set-up yesterday and thought you were excellent, hence why I’d rather give you my money than one of the snooty shops we’ve been to so far!!  Laura : June 09

Hi Sue, Thanks so much for the quote.  We came away from your place feeling very positive and thought you were so warming to us that we must do business with you.  You sold it to us!  J.L : June 09
