Facebook Reviews

After a bad experience at another boutique I was a bit apprehensive about dress shopping. However, I needed a wedding dress and decided to trust Martels - it was the best decision! Vanessa was so lovely and she helped me to find my dream dress 😍. Our elopement wedding took place last week and I felt amazing in my beautiful dress. Thank you so much Vanessa and Martels Bridal Boutique 😊❤️.
I originally went to an open day at Martles with my H2B the beginning of last year, everyone was so welcoming. Later on last year I went to a wedding fair at Chelmsford Race Course where I met the lovely ladies from their bridal boutique i entered the competition to win a wedding dress. And I WON!! Since winning Karen has been able to answer any questions I have had without any issues. The wonderful Samantha helped me pick out my dress October last year, think it was safe to say everyone in the room got very emotional. I've recently had an appointment to get measured up for my dress so it could get ordered, at this appointment I met the lovely Vanessa. All of the wonderful ladies have made great effort to get to know me, my H2B and have made me feel so welcome.
Wow the experience at martels was amazing. Karen and her team are so knowledgeable and were so patient with all of my questions. They made the experience of dress shopping so much fun. The dress I ordered is such great quality and looks amazing. Karen was so helpful with helping me to measure my bridesmaid and the dress needs no alterations at all. I am so happy I decided to go here for my dresses. Thank you all so much
The service at this bridal boutique is second to none. I have dealt with both Sam and Karen and both ladies have been so so helpful and kind, there is no pressure to buy and they only stock the most stunning dresses, absolutely exquisite! A personal and friendly experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Fantastic service from start to finish. Sam knew what would flatter my shape and found some beautiful dresses exactly what I was after. Absolutely can’t wait to wear my dress. Thank you 😘
Very happy with my visit, thank you so much ladies with all your help in finding my dress! 👰
great customer service! I'm a very happy bride to be after finding my perfect wedding shoes ☺️
Wonderful choice and amazing service. x
🤗😀 A friend and I popped in this morning with no appointment to look at Bridesmaid dresses. We were amazed by the choice of dresses and how friendly and helpful the lady was. Looking forward to going back in and ordering the dresses. 😀HIGHLY RECOMMEND 🤗
Would recommend to anyone at the beginning stages of planning their wedding as the team here can help and guide you with almost every element. From suits/MOTB/bridesmaids & bride dresses to cake, table design, music and wedding rings the staff here are more than happy to help.
