Our Bride's Testimonials


Introducing some of our brides ...


Giles and I had the most wonderful day against the idyllic backdrop of lake Ullswater, helped along by the fact I was in love with my bridal gown and cathedral length veil, and my bridesmaids' dusky pink tea length dresses.

The look I was going for – romance and roses – came together perfectly, and luckily the sun was out in force making the crystals on my dress sparkle.

I had lots of photographs taken of the back of my dress, as it had the most amazing detailing – an element which instigated compliments off guests all day long. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of choosing my dress and all the fittings that went with it, I wish I could do it all over again!

Sue Especially, you have been fantastic from my very first appointment, I will always remember my great experience with you.

Everything has been perfect... my dress, my three bridesmaids, my two flowergirls and Rob and his groomsmen’s suits! Me and Rob really appreciate everything.

I cannot thank Carol Roberts Couture Bridal enough for what they have done for my special day.

I thought I knew what style of dress I wanted… but left with something completely different… they helped me find my dream dress that suited me perfectly!

My bridesmaid’s dresses were absolutely gorgeous, the team helped me find the perfect style that suited all my girls! James and his groomsmen loved their suits too, the quality was excellent!

A very friendly boutique where they really go the extra mile for you! I never felt pressured and my service was honest and relaxed, we had so much fun! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Carol and all the team!

To Carol and the Team,
Thank you very much for making my wedding day so very special with all your valued advice helping me choose the perfect wedding dress. My bridesmaid’s dresses and colour was stunning.

With sincere appreciation my mum and I thank you for all your time, enthusiasm and ideas.
We had an amazing time during all our visits and I will cherish those special memories forever.

Thank you very much for making my wedding day so very special

Many Thanks, Love Amy xx

Thank you for all your help and hard work. I felt stunning on my wedding day as did my beautiful friends in their amazing dresses. From the moment I put the first dress on until walking in the church we could not have asked for more.

Thank you so much for dressing all of us, it made the morning so much easier and you were utterly brilliant, it all felt so calm and organized and lucky to have a lovely lady to share it all with! I know I speak for myself and I’m guessing mum, that we will miss you all (and the odd glass of fizz after dress shopping!!)

P.S. Mark said his suit felt ‘pretty good’ too which is an excellent complement from a farmer!!

I am so lucky and fortunate to have had you all helping me find the dress of my dreams and I loved every step of the way. At no point did I ever feel anything was too much trouble and I loved that all the staff are honest and reliable.

I will be recommending you to every bride to be that I know because I truly believe if you find the right bridal shop then everything else just falls into place.

Carol; thank you so much for dressing me and my bridal party on the day. Everyone looked sensational and you took the stress away from everyone and were just a treasure to work with. I am not biased when I say you are the best in the business because you most definitely are.

My fairy godmother every step of the way. Love and best wishes to you all.

From start to finish Carol and the team were fantastic. 

I went for my first appointment and I was made to feel so welcome. Carol helped me pick out a few dresses she thought would suit me and told me to pick a few I felt I liked. This was the first time I had received this sort of help in a bridal shop I went thinking my shape didn't suit any dresses. Then I ended up getting the princess dress I always wanted. Carol explained that the box pleat pattern down the dress elongated my body to make me look taller.

I really felt at ease and so comfortable in the boutique. I returned to buy my dress and look at bridesmaid dresses. I had 3 completely different girls as my bridesmaids in terms of taste, style and body shape. The dresses chosen again with help from the Carol Roberts girls looked fantastic! The choices in the store suited so many tastes. Everyone commented on how nice all our dresses were. 

I cannot thank Carol and the girls enough I felt truly blessed to have so much help and stunning dresses steamed to perfection.  The added touch of a letter on my pillow at the hotel to wish me luck confirmed to me that Carol Roberts is a fantastic business and I would highly recommend to everyone!

5 star service in a comfortable professional atmosphere. Thank you again for all your help.

Carol and the team, especially Sue, are absolutely amazing, couldn’t recommend them enough. Nothings too much for them and they go the extra mile to make it a perfect experience. I couldn’t wait to wear my gorgeous dress that Carol delivered on the day and I found the dress the bride service to be the best final touch. We found it really useful that everything was under one roof and can’t thank Carol and the team enough for all their help and being a part of my special day.

I couldn’t wait to wear my gorgeous dress

Dear the Carol Roberts team

Thank you for all of your help over the past couple of months. You have all been wonderful from the first time I came in to the shop. I found my perfect dress. Nina did a beautiful job of altering it and it looked perfect. Everyone loved it as much as me!

I will highly recommend you to all my friends planning their weddings.

Thank you for all of your help over the past couple of months

If you are getting married I could not recommend Carol Robert's Couture Bridal enough. I wasn't sure what style of dress I wanted, but the team helped me pick the most fantastic and perfect dress for my wedding, (just look at my photo) and although it looks it, it didn’t break the budget.

To make your day extra special I would advise the ‘dress the bride’ service. It takes away that stress of getting everything perfect, including were to put your perfume so it would last and not mark the dress!

I now live in Manchester and toured all the shops in this area before deciding to look in Cumbria (where I’m originally from, and got married). Definitely the best wedding shop in not only Cumbria but the North West. It was worth the 240 mile round trip.

Honestly there just isn't enough words to describe how good the service was which we got from Carol and the team, as soon as I walked in I felt so comfortable and relaxed and knew I'd end up getting my from there!

We had a few hiccups like power cuts during a measuring, me getting fake tan on my gorgeous ivory dress and naked groomsmen but Carol took it all with a pinch of salt andnothing was ever a problem, we ended up getting the groomsmen’s suits and bridesmaid dresses from Carol as well and they were all very impressed with how professional the team were, it didn’t matter if they were 4ft or 6ft, size 8 or size 20, the dresses looked amazing on them all and that’s thanks to Carol, Nina and all the girls.

I just wish I could get married every year so I could keep coming back in.

we ended up getting the groomsmen’s suits and bridesmaid dresses from Carol ...

My husband and I would like to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you for everything you did for us leading up to our wedding. Your patience was amazing… Sorting out a bride and groom, 2 pageboys, 4 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, can’t have been easy, but you did it and everyone looked perfect, and it was all down to you!

I would recommend the dressing of the bride to any one! Carol you were like our own fairy godmother, you helped us all stay calm. A special thanks to Nina for making the dresses fit perfectly and putting up with my crazy family! It was a pleasure using Carol Roberts Couture Bridal for all our bridal needs!

Mr and Mrs Archibald

Right from the very start we were so impressed by the combination of professionalism and friendly service. Carol and the team worked so hard to make everything run so smoothly in the build-up to our wedding.

We took advantage of the dress the bride service and don’t know what we would have done without it. As a business CRCB provides top class efficient service but more than that by the end I thought of Carol as a friend.

Tracey & Scott Walmsley

I can't thank Carol and her team enough. From start to finish, the service was professional and personalised to our needs. In fact, we were so impressed we got the bridesmaids dresses and the men's suits from there too!

Carol was also able to recommend an excellent photographer and florist. I had complete confidence in Carol and her team, and everything came together perfectly on the day.

I can thoroughly recommend the "dress the bride" service too- it was a perfect start to our special day, and I arrived at the venue completely stress free!
Thank you for everything.

I can't thank Carol and her team enough ...

To Carol and ‘Team’,

I would like to say a big thank you for all of your help with my wedding dress, (and accessories) which was so greatly admired and commented upon by many many people. I felt so proud wearing it, and was sad to take it off at the end of the day!! You and your staff were always so pleasant and helpful, which contributed to a very successful and memorable day.

Thank you again. Love and best wishes

At 34 and having had 3 children the thought of finding my wedding dress filled me with dread! I wanted to find something classic and elegant, but didn’t feel good about myself. I walked into Carol’s shop and instantly the warm and friendly atmosphere made me and my 4 bridesmaids feel really welcome and at ease.

Carol and her staff have the ability to make you feel beautiful in all their dresses and suddenly I realised hour’s had passed and we were all enjoying every minute.

Carol and her staff went above and beyond what was needed of them and I personally can’t thank them enough for helping to make our wedding...
The most perfect of days!!

We want to say a massive thank you to you & your team.

From the first time I came in to look at wedding dresses, the experience was brilliant. Your help & advice helped me pick out the most perfect wedding dress & adorable flowergirl dress. Also the suits were fantastic & all of the men looked fab. The hair accessories for the girls were gorgeous & I absolutely loved my sparkly veil!! We think the service & experience you provide doesn’t compare to anywhere else in Carlisle & we are just so pleased you opened before we got married!

Right from the very start we were so impressed by the combination of professionalism and friendly service
