Alice   

I loved my visit to Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane was so friendly and very helpful, making me feel at ease straight away. The family I brought with me enjoyed the environment while I was trying on dresses. Jane took her time with helping me choose a dress and offered advice and honest opinions which I really valued. I would definitely recommend going to the boutique for a wonderful bridal experiance.

Rosie Banks    Colchester   

Fairytale experience and for a perfectionist bride who wanted the dream dress,dreams do come true! Absolutely stunning range, personsal touches. I'd been many places before coming to Jane but when you know,you know and nothing else came even close. Highly recommend on every level x

Maria    Billericay   

I had such a fantastic experience with Jane today. She has a wide variety of dresses to choose from at extremely reasonable prices. Jane did not pressure me to make a decision, took the time to listen to what I had to say, and really understood what would work for me. Above all, she's such a lovely lady, and it was a pleasure to buy my dream dress from her. Thank you so much xxx

Emma    Witham   

I am still buzzing after finding my perfect dress at the barn bridal boutique last week! It was my first time trying on dresses and I had no idea what I wanted! Jane was so patient and wise; she picked out a perfect selection and gave such good advice! I didn’t feel at all rushed and the three hours flew by! I am so excited to try my dress on again and can’t wait to wear it on the big day!!! Thank you so much Jane!!

Ellie    Wickham Bishops   

I never thought I would find the Dress I had been to a few bridal boutiques before and as I am not a very confident or young bride to be I thought I would have to "settle" for an Ok dress. Jane was so lovely and made me feel special she also understood my worries and what I actually wanted. I couldn't believe it when I tried on a dress completely different to what I imagined and absolutely loved it even my Maid of Honour was surprised when I said Yes to the Dress. I can't wait to wear it on my big day I know my Husband to Be will be knocked off his feet, thank you Jane you are a miracle worker xxx

Lorraine Holden-Earl   

Had a truly amazing experience with Jane. She immediately put me at easy and made my dress buying experience exceptional. Because of her wonderful boutique I was able to find the dress of my dreams very quickly and couldn't be happier. Greatest feeling in the world to say 'Yes to the Dress'! Thank you so much! I highly recommend everyone to go. You will not be disappointed!!

Deborah Soucy    WICKFORD   

I can’t praise Jane enough for the wonderful job she did finding me my perfect wedding dress. Jane is so kind, welcoming and really makes you feel very special while you’re searching for ‘the’ dress. The service my bridesmaids and I received was second to none, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique to any of my friends looking for their perfect dress.

Hayley Fenwick    Sudbury   

If you are looking for a personal, relaxed experience I could not recommend Jane and The Barn Bridal Boutique enough. I had the best afternoon and the dresses are beautiful. I came away feeling like a bride and with the perfect dress. I cannot thank Jane enough xxx

Charlotte    Braintree   

Jane, Thank you so much for making my experience wonderful. I was so nervous about going dress shopping, being plus size too it just made it very hard for me to bring myself to try on dresses. You made me feel very comfortable and welcome, and put my mind at ease.

AND I SAID YES TO THE DRESS! It was just perfect and I have you to thank for that Jane. x
Thank you x

Rebecca   

I cannot praise Jane highly enough for the appointment that I had at Barn Bridal. I was incredibly nervous about the whole process of buying a wedding dress, especially as someone who doesn’t normally wear dresses. Jane made the process so comfortable and relaxed and I enjoyed every part of choosing my dress. I certainly didn’t expect to buy a dress as the first fitting I went to but it just felt completely right! Thank you again to Jane, I cannot wait to wear my dress and feel fantastic in it.

Jess    Braintree   

I could not reccomend this place enough!! I'm kind of sad that I got my dress on the first appointment I had there because I would love to go back Hehe! From the first message sent Jane was so lovely and welcoming and she blew my mind away with how lovely and warm the shop was.
It was the funnest dress shopping experience I have ever had and I will truly treasure it forever!
Thank you Jane for helping me find my dream dress! Xxx

Charlotte Townsend   

By far the best dress shopping experience I've had! Dresses are beautiful and the cost is phenomenal!!

Jessica Thomas    Ilford, Essex   

Had a wonderful afternoon trying on dresses, jane made me feel comfortable, and was really honest and professional, im so happy that I chose bridal barn as my first to try on my first ever wedding dress and buy an absolutely stunning dress at a fantastic price , thankyou jane, would highly recommend xx

Kerry    Silverend   

I cannot recommend Barn Bridal highly enough! From the minute you enter, you are made to feel completely at home and Jane seems to have a natural instinct for choosing dresses. Nothing is too much trouble and nothing is rushed. I had so much fun. Thank you Jane - I cannot wait for the big day now!! Xxx

Kate Cooper    Colchester, Essex   

Jane was absolutely wonderful! She listened very carefully to the style I was after and picked out a wonderful handful of dresses to try on and I found the one for me (it was the very first one!). Lovely shop and Jane makes you feel so comfortable. Can’t recommend enough!

Tiffany    Kent   

What a fabulous experience..
I was dreading dress shopping but Jane was lovely from the first call to the trying on day.
Beautiful dresses & so much choice.
Lovely touch of glass of Prosecco after choosing dress to celebrate.
Honestly cannot recommend Barn Bridal Boutique enough & I got to say ‘yes to the dress’ 💕🍾

Sarah L    Essex   

I found my dress!! The whole experience from start to finish was so personal, relaxed and exciting! The boutique itself is stunning and Jane is so welcoming! All of her dresses are gorgeous and after trying on as many as I could, I had almost come to think that this just wasn't my day to find my dress...... but the last one was THE one! I didn't feel rushed or pressured at all as Jane is such an amazing woman with her patience and experience, she knew exactly what would suit me and what would compliment my figure and even though I knew in my mind what I wanted and what I didn't, she encouraged me to try dresses that I wouldn't have even looked at and I was really surprised that I loved them! I loved all of them but the moment I cried when I looked at myself in the final dress I knew it was the one and it fits like it was made especially for me so no alterations needed! All in all it was such a fantastic day and I would recommend Barn Bridal Boutique to any bride to be!

Thank you so much Jane xx

Leigh   

Barn bridal was absolutely wonderful not only were my mum and I made to feel really welcome she knew just what would suit me and my wonderful dress surpassed all my expectations. I didn't think I would ever feel as amazing as I did or my wedding day. Thank you xxx

Emma Lisa Williams   

Jane is amazing! Not only did she allay my fears as a plus sized bride, she was genuine in her guidance and compliments. I couldn’t have asked for more on my appointment, an intimate, one-to-one experience with only the two of us in the store and Jane giving me her complete, undivided attention. After trying on several dresses, I left the store with my dream dress in hand. Thank you Jane for listening to my concerns, making me feel like I was the most important customer you had ever attended to and for creating a really pleasurable experience. I won’t forget you!

Jennifer    Bocking   

If I could give more than 5 stars I would because (and I’ll try) words cannot express just how much Jane & Phoebe at Barn Bridal Boutique have completely changed my outlook & feelings towards my wedding day!

Like many others, I had organised our wedding pre covid & was meant to have taken place in 2020. When planning the wedding, I always dreamt of being able to say yes to the perfect dress.
Sadly, my first experiences of wedding dress shops were absolutely horrific. For context I am roughly between a size 20-24 (depending on the high street/online shop), I am incredibly self conscious & constantly panicking about my arms, my neck & my stomach.
These previous wedding dress experiences I’ve had have not only made those anxiety’s worse, but the staff would often agree with my flaws.

At Barn Bridal Boutique, they not only made me feel incredibly comfortable, but I’ve never felt so beautiful in so many wedding dresses. I felt like I’d known Jane for years and the atmosphere she and Phoebe created for me and my mum was exactly what I always wanted from a wedding dress experience and more!

Jane, your barn is beautiful, the dresses are amazing with such a wonderful selection of styles and sizes & I am proud to say, I am apart of the Barn Bridal dress family! Thank you for everything!

Charlotte Weatherall    Essex   

I had a brilliant experience with Jane and said yes to the dress! There selection of dresses to choose from was beautiful and I had a really lovely afternoon trying lots on with my mum and two bridesmaids. Jane was unbelievably welcoming and helpful throughout.

I had the best experience visiting Barn Bridal and felt so welcome from the minute I booked my appointment. Jane is passionate about her work and from the minute I walked in, she wanted to help me find the dress that best suited me and what I wanted. Jane listened, gave her honest opinions and helped me to find a dress that worked for my body and made me feel good. It was easily my best experience of wedding dress shopping and I am so happy I found THE dress with Jane! Brilliant knowledge of the wedding dress world and such a lovely lady. I would definitely recommend Barn Bridal to all my friends!

Lorna McGrath    Braintree   

I absolutely love Jane's barn. As soon as you walk in, you feel a sense of calm and excitement all rolled into one. Jane made me feel very welcome and went over and above to make sure that I had the dress I wanted and that I felt happy and comfortable with my decision. I am so pleased to have bought a truly beautiful dress from a lovely lady in a unique shop (and for a great price too)! Thank you so much Jane. Laura xxx

Laura Lainchbury    Chelmsford, Essex   

From the start, Jane made the three of us feel extremely welcome in her beautiful boutique. I had some idea of what suited me, and Jane happily found dresses in this style for me to try on. She also encouraged me to try some different styles, including one dress which was brand new in, which I may not have tried if it purely down to me - so glad, because I said 'yes' to that dress. I was also impressed with the accessories for sale, and ended up walking out with my whole outfit bar the shoes, all for an incredibly good price! An absolutely brilliant, totally stressless day (despite it being the hottest day of the year!) Thank you!

Ella Hurley    Dunmow, Essex   

This was not the first place I'd been to but by far the best. Jane was lovely and offered us tea and coffee straight away. The room was beautiful to match the dresses. I got stuck between two but did find the one which I'm so happy with. I can't recommend barn bridal enough. We all had such a fun and wonderful time choosing the dress. Thank you Jane :)

Kim Joiner    Colchester, Essex   

Jane really took her time to understand me and my vision. She made me feel so relaxed and at ease. All the dresses were stunning, but she found the perfect one for me first time! Would highly reccommend, thank you for all your help!

Clarissa    Leigh-on-sea   

I couldn’t recommend Jane enough. I felt really nervous about wedding dress shopping And Jane completely put me at ease, with the luck of saying yes to the third dress I tried on! The dresses at barn bridal boutique are beautiful & there’s such a lovely selection, with the barn itself being so lovely too. I can’t wait to wear my dress and can’t thank Jane enough. Ladies you won’t be disappointed coming to Jane for your wedding dress!

Emily Wallace   

Jane was really friendly and she has such nice dresses. The boutique is so nice and Jane listens to what you want. Would recommend 100%

Nicola Grimwood    Braintree   

Amazing! The first shop I went to and I found the one! Jane was so friendly and helpful, she made the experience just perfect, I felt like she was a friend trying to help me find my perfect dress! Honestly couldn't recommend Jane and Barn Bridal Boutique enough, amazing service and we even got a bottle of fizz after to celebrate! Thank you so much Jane x

Sera    Romford   

Booked an appointment at Barn Bridal for Saturday. Was slightly nervous and thinking no dress would suit me. Arrived with my mum and maid of honour and Jane made us feel so welcome and was genuinely interested in my wedding plans and made me feel so relaxed straight away... before I knew it a few hours had passed and I was walking out with my dream wedding dress. Jane’s knowledge and experience was amazing and she really understood everything I was saying and wanting.
A day which I was nervous about turned out into an amazing day and can’t to wear my dress now and for everyone to see me in it. Thank you Jane.

Louise Ball    Colchester, Essex   

I read a lot of reviews before I booked at Barn Bridal and having said 'yes to the dress' there almost a week ago, I have no doubt that every word on here is true! Jane was fantastic from start to finish, warm welcoming and knowledgeable. You can tell right away that this lady knows her stuff, with minimal input she seemed to understand me and the type of dress I was looking for. She got it spot on with the very first dress! Having said that, there was no rush and she happily helped me try on all the others I considered just to make sure! Jane makes the reveal so special, I couldn't believe I'd found my dress! Celebratory bubbles and pictures - the whole experience was just wonderful. I love that I walked out with the dress that day, especially as I'm getting married in less than 2 months! Thank you Jane

Hayley    Essex   

I had a wonderful experience choosing the dress of my dreams at Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane couldn't of been more helpful (and patient!) after I tried on dress after dress, finally finding 'the one'!
Great varied styles of dresses to suit all budgets. I would highly recommend a visit to any Bride to Be.

Rebecca Bartle    Witham   

Such a lovely experience today at Barn Bridal. Jane was brilliant and helped me feel so at ease every step of the way.

There are such a range of dresses that there truly is something for everyone and Jane really does have an eye for what suits you.

I couldn't be happier with my dress or recommend Barn Bridal more!

Thank you so much, Jane! Can't wait to send over some photos of the day.

💕

Sophie    Braintree   

I am so happy that I chose barn bridal as my first visit to try on wedding dresses. I had a wonderful time and left with my dream dress at a great price. Thank you so much! I cannot wait to wear it! Xx

Natasha Jones    Colchester, Essex   

What a fab experience! Jane is such a lovely lady and seriously knows her stuff. Being my first experience of trying on dresses I had no clue where to start, or what was going to suit me. Jane took so much time with me, allowing me to try on each style until I got an idea of what suited me.
At no point did Jane make me feel rushed and she made it a wonderful experience.
The Boutiques location is unique and beautiful. It has been done to a very high standard and you can tell the love that has been put into it.
There are so many dresses to try on all with their own magical feel.
I could not give Jane any higher praise. I would definitely recommend for any bride to come here!
Thank you Jane x

Sarah    Essex   

I said yes to the dress! Jane, you are wonderful, and you made my wedding dress experience something my mum and I will remember for the rest of our lives. From the moment we walked in you made us feel so welcome, and we absolutely loved sitting back and just getting to know you. It was so lovely to talk through everything I'd like in a dress, you were so understanding, thoughtful and kind. There was such a beautiful variety of dresses, and I felt gorgeous in every single one of them! But amazingly, we managed to find the dress on only the second try on!!

I was so overcome with how beautiful it looked, and how you made me feel so perfect, I couldn't help but cry. Neither could my mum!

It was such a beautiful day, and I have the perfect dress that is just completely me!

I would absolutely recommend Barn Bridal Boutique to any bride to be!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful, unforgettable experience Jane! Xxx

Emily Von    New Ash Green - Kent   

I had THE most amazing experience with Jane, I was made to feel so welcome and at home, the dresses were all so beautiful and a fraction of the price of any other shop! Jane took time to help me find the perfect dress for me, nothing was too much trouble and I've come away with the dress of my dreams! I can not recommend her highly enough.. Thankyou so much Jane

Erin Dobson    Rayne, Essex   

My experience at Barn Bridal was perfect in every way! I arrived for my appointment with my mum, mother in law to be, my aunt and maid of honour! The barn is stunning and Jane made us all feel so welcome, we were greeted with cups of tea and coffee on arrival and had a good chat about the wedding. Jane was so easy to talk to and very professional. I had so much fun trying on lots of different styles of dresses and Jane gave great advice. The moment I found The Dress was truly amazing! Thank you Jane for all your help and making my 'wedding dress day' truly special and a day to remember. We celebrated with bubbly which was also a lovely touch. The dresses are beautiful and so reasonably priced, I can't recommend Jane and Barn Bridal enough. Thank you so much Jane x

Kimberley   

Jane was simply amazing. She took the time to get to know me, and what I was looking for in my ideal dress, all with a lovely cuppa. She pulled several options for me, all stunning! But the first dress I put on was THE dress. Jane's tea was still warm, and I'd found my dress! After several appointments else where, I could not believe how spot on she got it. I still can't believe I have a dress even better than I had hoped for! She was so warm, really made me feel comfortable and like a real bride. And the prosecco to celebrate was a fantastic touch - it didn't feel like an appointment, more like a visit to a friend's house.

Lisa Brill    HALSTEAD   

I visited barn bridal after a family member recommended it to me, and had an amazing experience! I had never been dress shopping before and had no idea what I was looking for or where to even start! Jane was so lovely and guided me through the whole process and used her impressive knowledge to match me with my perfect dress. I would highly recommend barn Bridal to all brides to be!

Laura    Essex   

Thankyou Jane for such a welcoming experience. A fantastic environment and beautiful dresses. Thankyou for helping me find the one!

Nicola Moore   

I wanted to commend Jane on her wonderful attentiveness and expertise when I was picking out my dress! The boutique is situated in lovely surrounds & feels very private. I had a completely relaxing feeling from start to finish. Myself and my friend felt very welcome and Jane was patient to listen to my likes & dislikes and I finally found ‘the one’. I can’t wait to wear my beautiful dress on my wedding day. Thanks Jane and the Barn Bridal Experience for making it such a great experience!!

Gemma    Essex   

I went to the barn bridal boutique very recently (10/02/20) when we arrive we had a lovely welcome from Jane where we sat down together with a cup of coffee so she could get to know me better and work out the style I was after. There is a good range of beautiful dresses there, which are in all sizes. Jane helped out alot with her personality as she made you feel very relaxed/calm and very welcome in her shop. She listens to what you like on each dress while you are tying on the different dresses to help find your perfect dress. She also knew alot about what style suit you on your size what accessories would work with the dress such as belts and tiaras.
I found the perfect dress and can't wait to wear it in August.
Thanks again for all your help with finding the perfect dress.

Andrea   

Wish I had known about this great shop when I got married. Appointment only, exclusive use bridal dress shop. Lovely decor - beautiful dresses. Made to feel totally at ease by Jane who is very approachable, friendly and down to earth. Went here to chose my sisters wedding dress, was a truly enjoyable experience. Didn’t feel rushed and was great that we were only people in there as it felt really exclusive for us and much more special than other bridal shops can make you feel. And my sister said yes to the dress, fantastic prices. Dress, beautiful long detailed veil, belt and tiara for just over £1000. Take it home that day. Great place. Highly recommended

Vikki h    Colchester, Essex   

Had a lovely few hours here today trying on as many dresses as I could! Jane was so friendly and really knows her stuff - would recommend her without hesitation. I left with the most beautiful dress....so happy! Thank you Jane! X

Alison Hatchman    Braintree, Essex   

Jane was lovely and patient, helped me pick out a perfect dress. It’s a lovely shop and atmosphere, would highly recommend!

Becky    Braintree   

Visted with my mum yesterday - both of us were quite nervous, thinking it would be a stressful experience, but we really need not have worried. Jane was so lovely and friendly and put us both right at ease. The whole experience was a pleasure and the service was impeccable. Left with the most beautiful dress (the first one I tried on!) and couldn't be happier. The only boutique I even booked an appointment for and so glad I did.

Catherine Hulse    North Yorkshire/ Essex   

I have just bought my dress from here and had the most amazing afternoon! I have just had a baby but Jane made me feel so comfortable and confident in myself it was such an enjoyable experience! I would truely recommend!

Chloe    Braintree   

Yesterday I went to Barn Bridal Boutique to try find a wedding dress. It was the first time I ever went wedding dress shopping and I was completely nervous an anxious. Jane was absolutely brilliant at putting my nerves at ease. She sat down and talk me through everything that was going to happen and gave me some advice. I tried on dresses and she helped me find a dress that suited my figure perfectly and I totally fell in love with it. The whole experience was so enjoyable. I owe it to Jane for helping me find my perfect dress. I can't wait to marry my future husband and show everyone how gorgeous my dress is. I would highly recommend any bride looking for a great wedding dress experience to go to Barn Bridal and see Jane 🙂

Kirsten Hart    Hertfordshire   

I had the BEST experience with Jane. Her bridal boutique has such a lovely atmosphere and she made us feel at home straight away. We got settled and had a chat about what i liked and what i had tried on at previous shops before we got started trying the dresses on. What i loved the most is that Jane gave her honest opinion about what suited me and what didn't and i was able to find the one!! The moment was made so special and Jane kept adding props (flowers, head-dress) so we could invision what it would like on the day! I highly recommend Barn Bridal & wish i could do it all over again! Thanks again Jane xxx

Daisy Buckenham    Halstead   

Wow. I can not begin to explain how ama img my appointment was. Mum, my bridesmaid and I had a wonderful time trying on any and every dress we wanted. At the same time we were guided and advised to the best. Coming to the perfect dress with many tears of happiness. We can not thank you enough for this and helping me find the most stunning gown I could imagine.

Chloe    Sudbury   

I came to Jane because I already had a wedding dress that I had fallen out of love with. I’m not sure I really loved it in the first place! Even though I had a little over a month to find a dress... that fitted... Jane assured me we could find the dress of my dreams together... and we did!!! I have just come away from my appointment, dress in hand and absolutely on cloud 9. I must of tried on over 10 dresses and Janes patience and calmness along the way really helped me to just think about what I wanted. Every single dress is of such superior quality, and Jane really does know her stuff!!! Thank you so much for for turning my nightmare into a dream, And it was lovely to find my dress with such a wonderful lady. Xxx

Georgina    Braintree   

Seriously cannot rate Jane and her amazing service enough! She is so patient and helpful. Would definitely recommend you go and take a look at her amazing dresses which are also reasonably priced!! Thank you so much for making all my bridal dreams come true xx

Chloe Padgett   

Visited Jane's beautiful barn with my mum, sister and niece. We had a fantastic time. It was our first outing for a wedding dress, also our last as ' the chosen dress' was in this beautiful barn. Jane is so lovely, she evan wrote down the dress name she thought I would end up with for fun at the start of our experience. Without showing us, and she was absolutely spot on. Jane is easy to chat too and we had a good laugh. Dresses are beautiful and more choice than other shops which seem to be the same style/ design. Highly recommend Silver End bridal barn x Thanks Jane x

Ursula   

Beautiful venue for wedding dress appointments. Jade is fantastic at helping you find the dress that suits you for your special day. Very patient and accompanying and takes on board your thoughts and provides upgrades to your search according. Amazing experience - couldn't rate it higher. Highly recommend to all brides to be 👗🥳 I said yes to the dress today!!! 👗🥳 My first bridal shop, local, friendly and very helpful. Took my nan who is elderly and with aliments and Jade was so accomodating and welcoming. Again, can't rate high enough. Thank you sooo much Barn Bridal Boutique ❤️ x

Jodi    Braintree   

Jane is amazing! Not only did she allay my fears as a plus sized bride, she was genuine in her guidance and compliments. I couldn’t have asked for more on my appointment, an intimate, one-to-one experience with only the two of us in the store and Jane giving me her complete, undivided attention. After trying on several dresses, I left the store with my dream dress in hand. Thank you Jane for listening to my concerns, making me feel like I was the most important customer you had ever attended to and for creating a really pleasurable experience. I won’t forget you!

Jenniffer    Bocking   

Perfect service. I have to describe my shopping experience here as excellent. Being a bride of nearly 50 I was a little worried about this but from the beginning Jane was so welcoming and friendly. She seems to have a great understanding of what actually suits you. Brought the dress that day too ! Thank you Jane for your time patience and expertise.
I definitely recommend that you pay her a visit

Liza Franklin    Braintree   

Wow, what can I say, or where do I start! I visited Jane's Boutique on Saturday, this was my first experience in trying wedding dresses on and I was so nervous, being a plus size bride and having the worry that there would only be 1 or 2 dresses in my size, I had given myself a headache! Well that was silly! Jane was amazing, she put my mind at ease as soon as we got there, she is so friendly and knowledgeable! I couldn't believe it when she showed me the first dress she wanted me to try! It was exactly what I had envisioned myself wearing on my wedding day! It was absolutely stunning. We tried a few more on as I didn't have the "feeling" I've been told I should get when you know its the "one" which calmed my nerves and I started to really enjoy myself. I then spotted a dress which I wasn't sure would be in my size, it was nothing like I had imagined and didn't have any of the "must haves" I'd told Jane I wanted, but Jane was so encouraging and told me it was in my size and that I would look amazing in it! She was spot on!!! I cannot believe how much I love it and couldn't help but smile and dance round in it! I had that "feeling" immediately! thank you so much Jane, I will remember you and the wonderful experience you gave me forever xxx

Hannah Ventom    Benfleet, Essex   

I visited Barn Bridal a couple of weeks ago now, Jane was so friendly and welcoming to us all. Jane offered lots of great advice and made the whole experience so special. I left with my perfect dress and couldn't be happier! Thank you Jane!

Gemma    Essex   

Jane, thank you so much for helping me find my perfect dress for our upcoming wedding. I cannot recommend Barn Bridal highly enough. From start to finish, Jane made us feel relaxed and welcome. The dresses are absolutely stunning and the prices are so reasonable. There were so many to choose from and try on. You are not rushed and have the whole boutique to yourselves. A beautiful setting and a wonderful experience.

Stephanie Lott    Thurrock   

What a lovely place! Jane was very helpful and made me feel very special! Was not rushed, looked after very well. And found my dress!! Cant wait for the big day! Thank you so much!

Rachel Smith    Colchester, Essex   

I visited Jane today and this was my first appointment to try dresses on for my wedding next year. I didn't know what to expect and I certainly didn't think I would find 'the dress' but I did and Jane made it all so much easier for me. The Barn is just beautiful and Jane is so accommodating and puts you at ease massively and makes you feel special. I had loads of time to look at dresses and she made me and my dad feel very welcome. The dresses are so reasonable, I'm so glad I found this place! I went away with a huge smile on my face and I can't wait to wear my wonderful dress next April! Thank you Jane xxx

Sara Perry    Inworth, Essex   

I couldn't recommend Barn Bridal Boutique enough. Jane is so friendly, patient and is very good at what she does- she had such a great eye for what would suit me and understood my style immediately. She and the boutique really do live up to the glowing reviews!

Having visited during the COVID period (June 2020), things were undoubtedly going to be a bit strange. But the whole process was fun and felt very safe despite COVID; the boutique was very clean, our temperatures were taken before going in, there was hand sanitiser and even a spare mask when mine broke. Jane had clearly gone the extra mile to ensure that the day was as undisrupted as possible- she had set up a lovely little marquee just outside the store. My mum and sister were then able to still be a part of the day, while sticking to government regulations.

We spent hours trying on so many dresses and Jane was so patient, honest and helpful throughout. She never once pressured or rushed me. Thank you again, Jane, for your help with trying on all of those dresses and for being so lovely! I love my dress (and pretty much all those I tried on) and the price was also very reasonable! x

I had driven past Barn Bridal regularly for past couple of years and said to myself .... when I am getting married I'm going to go there for a nosy.. ha ha .... when I finally got engaged and we set the date I put Barn Bridal on my list of places to visit.
I attended Crabb's Barn wedding fair a few months ago and got to meet with Jane and was immediately put at ease about visiting her Boutique. I didn't visit anywhere else at all.
Then a few months later I made an appointment to visit.
A couple of weeks ago I came along with my daughter and cousin and had my mum linked in via FaceTime (as she lives in Ireland) and had the most enjoyable time trying on as many dresses as was needed until I found the one that felt perfect. The choices were amazing and the Boutique is private and stunning.
At no time did I feel pressured, rushed or uncomfortable. Celebrating with Jane and the girls with bubbles toasting the purchase of my gorgeous dress was a great way to finish my experience with them.
Thank you Jane for looking after us all. 💞

Karen Fitzgerald.   

I was extremely nervous about finding ‘the dress’, Jayne allowed me to take the time I needed to really think it through and try on different styles. The private appointments made it really special and personal. I felt at ease and I am completely overjoyed that I’ve found ‘the one’, I just wish I could wear it now!

The experience at Barn Bridal was the one I wanted my daughter to have and wasn't disappointed. The Warm welcome over a much needed cup of tea gave us time to discuss my daughters wedding and Jane showed great interest to find out styles and requirements for her special day ......then away she went behind the curtains.
Wow..... all the gowns were amazing but there was one in particular our bride said YES to, a tearful moment shared with all the bridal party,all 5 of us!
To celebrate Jane was on hand with the procesco and this topped off an special night.
As mother of the bride I couldn't have been happier, I truly can't recommend the Barn Bridal Boutique enough.

I was so anxious about going to find a wedding dress. The expectation I was putting on myself was huge. The places I had been before had made me feel uncomfortable and like there wasn’t going to be a dress out there for me!

Going to the barn bridal boutique made me immediately at home. Having a warm drink, chatting to Jane she made me comfortable with her and confident that we were on the same page.

She was quickly able to sense my style, my likes and dislikes and soon, putting on dresses became fun and exciting!

Jane made sure to put me in dresses that fit me and would suite my shape and style. It was great to try on some different styles and figure out what I did and didn’t want from a dress.
After a while, Jane managed to pluck my ideal dress out of my brain and magic it into existence. 🙂 As soon as I saw it, I knew it was going to feel different from the others I tried on. I didn't want to take it off! I tried on a few dresses on after that but all I wanted to do was put my dress on again! From that point, I knew it was the one!

I am so happy with my dress and for the dress shopping experience Jane has provided me. Jane has a very understanding and approachable nature. It is amazing how quickly we were able to chat to here like we were best mates.

I have already told so many people about barn bridal and I shall continue to tell the story to people of the day that I said yes to the dress. 💕 Thank you, Jane, for making my afternoon relaxing and the special day that everyone hopes for when finding a dress. x

I had such a lovely experience at Barn Bridal Boutique today. From start to finish we were all made welcome by Jane. She was very relaxed and very helpful. Jane knew exactly what style suited me and had a huge range of accessories which she was more than happy to keep changing according to what I liked. I couldn’t recommend Barn Bridal Boutique enough.

Lauren    Witham   

Fantastic service. I went here last night being first bridal place I had been to. I loved that it was exclusive and Jane was very welcoming and made you feel very comfortable. The dresses are beautiful.... Didn't need to go anywhere else.... Found my dress and the prices are amazing

Vikki Spendlove    Braintree, Essex   

Myself and my three lovely bridesmaids met with Jane last week, in the hope of finding the perfect wedding dress. The bridal barn is beautiful and the atmosphere was relaxing. Jane puts you at ease from the second you walk through the door and the dresses are simply stunning. After just three dresses tried, Jane immediately knew from my personality and style, what I had in mind and the fourth dress had all of us saying, "yes to the dress!" Thank you so much Jane, for finding me my dream dress and for being so welcoming. I will definitely be recommending! xx

Rachel Carter    Great Notley, Braintree   

I had an evening appointment and it was dark when we pulled up in the car park. The building was all lit up and it looked just magical. The moment we got there I just had a feeling this was going to be the place I would find my dress. Jane was warm and welcoming and made me feel completely at ease. She well and truly looked after my Mum and I and we both left feeling extremely happy. I found my dress and cannot wait to wear it on my big day! I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND a visit to Barn Bridal Boutique. My dress is beautiful and more than half the price of other dresses I had tried on! Thank You so much Jane, See you for an earl grey at some point! X

Sarah Raven-Lloyd   

My experience at Barn Bridal Boutique really couldn’t have been any better. Jane is such a lovely person and made the whole process magical, fun and memorable. Such beautiful dresses too, I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend!Xx

Dawn Turner    Pentlow   

Such an enjoyable & special experience. Found the perfect dress with the help from Jayne! So many to choose from and didn't feel rushed or pressured like in other bridal shops. Would recommend trying here before hitting the highstreet.

Kellie   

I have to start by saying I’m sorry it has taken me so long to leave this review.
We got married 2 years ago, and I should have left this review then.
From the moment I googled the shop I knew I would find my dress there.
My sister and I drove to the shop and was just blown away from the start.
Jane was so friendly, she made us feel at home straight away, she showed me many dresses and without me knowing said to my sister this is your sisters dress.
30 mins later I had brought the very dress. She knew it’s what I was looking for and I loved it then and even more now.
Please go and see Jane she is amazing at what she does and the shop is just beautiful.

Thank you Jane sorry it took me so long xx

Sharon Brown    Hertfordshire   

We had such a lovely first time experience at barn bridals. Jane is very friendly and helpful. The dresses are all very beautiful and very reasonably price. Would highly recommend to every one x x

Clare   

If you’re getting married you must visit The Bridal Barn...you will not be disappointed. As a plus size bride Wedding Dress shopping is a little daunting but I didn’t need to worry as Jane put me at ease as soon as we walked in. Jane is so lovely and you could spend hours talking to her. Jane has already picked a dress she thought would be perfect for me before we arrived and she clearly knows her stuff as I walked out of the barn with that exact dress. The shop is truly beautiful and Jane could not do enough for us, offering tea, coffee, water and celebrating with Prosecco when I chose my dress. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish and I would recommend Jane and her shop to anyone getting married!

Trisha Cleary    Chelmsford   

Jane is a truly wonderful lady who is absolutely fantastic!

My best friend and me had such a happy special afternoon thanks to Janes supportive kind and lovely expertise.

I really had no idea what to expect and had massive apprehensions that a wedding dress was not going to be for me, I was feeling pretty despondent.

And here I am! Fully kitted out with the most beautiful elegant incredible wedding dress I could ever have dreamed of!

Thank you Jane for being a very big and important part of my wedding experience, you will always be the lady who made the seemingly impossible absolutely possible!!

Best wishes,

Love Philippa xx

Jane welcomed us with a nice cup of tea & I could tell she was a very welcoming lady & I felt relaxed straight away. This was my first time looking for a wedding dress & I knew by looking at the previous reviews I would be able to find my wedding dress in Janes Boutique. Jane asked what I liked & she understood what style would suit me. I picked out a few dresses & tried them on. Jane was very patient with me when I wanted to try on different dresses. I found the one I wanted & I felt like a bride! I couldn’t wait to try it on again & so looking forward to wearing my dress on my wedding day!

Katy    Witham   

What a fantastic experience! As someone who doesn’t have that much of an idea what I wanted I was doubtful I would find a dress. Not only did I find the most beautiful dress that fit me great it was well within my budget. Jane was attentive, kind and understood without a doubt what would be perfect for me. A wonderful atmosphere, with the intimate experience that come with choosing your dress. I definitely recommend a trip to Jane’s Barn Bridal you won’t regret it.

Billie    Witham   

My friend finally found her amazing wedding dress here after searching in many shops. Jane made us feel so welcome having drinks and chatting. She told me she would find the one for her and she did just that.

Danielle    Witham   

I had such a lovely experience at Barn Bridal Boutique, from Jane's incredibly welcoming personality, to trying on the beautiful dresses and enjoying the truly stunning shop. Thank you for putting me at ease and providing such an excellent and personalised service.

Billie Watkins   

On a Tuesday night less than 3 weeks before my wedding, I went to pick up my original dress after final alterations (bought from elsewhere) - the seamstress had wrecked it and it was unwearable.

I got home in floods of tears, then an extremely large glass of wine later I started googling “off the peg wedding dress Essex”. Barn Bridal popped up so I rang (fairly late in the evening!) and explained the situation - I was squeezed in an appointment for first thing the following morning, which was instantly reassuring. She also contacted her best seamstress and arranged so if I found a new dress with her I’d be able to go there directly from the boutique for any alterations.

I found my new dress. Not only did I find a replacement, it was even better than the first AND more reasonably priced. It even matched the lace on my existing shoes, and still coordinated with my other accessories. It was meant to be! Snug in the happy cosy bubble that is her boutique, along with a great choice of gowns and sustaining tea (then celebratory bubbles!) it was exactly what I needed to fall in love with another dress and deal with the stress/upset of the preceding 24hrs. I entered her boutique worried and exhausted after a sleepless night, then emerged a happy bride. She also showed my Mother-in-Law how to professionally get me in the dress so it looked absolutely perfect on the day. I can’t recommend Jane and her boutique highly enough - it’s almost a shame I’m only getting married once, or I’d have returned to her without hesitation.

Thank you for everything.

Sarah Talbot    Maldon, Essex   

I will definitely be recommending barn bridal boutique to all of my friends. Jane was amazing - so welcoming and friendly, and really helped guide me to find the perfect dress!
I mentioned that I wanted something I could possibly customise after my UK wedding to give a “Turkish” look for the second - Jane went above and beyond to show me how one dress could be transformed completely to suit the Turkish wedding also. It was like two dresses in one!
Jane was not at all pushy and I felt very comfortable. Beautiful selection of dresses and also accessories - all of which are VERY reasonably priced.
The whole morning felt very ‘VIP’ and truly was an amazing experience

Rebecca holdstock-brown    Essex   

Thank you so much for a lovely experience! My mum and Dad had such a wonderful afternoon watching me trying on wedding dresses and I had such a lovely time modelling all the different styles 😊 Your shop is beautiful - such a selection of dresses to choose from and the service was just exemplary. Together we found my dress. I am so happy! It's beautiful, quirky and unique and totally me! I would Recommend any bride to come here to dress shop! fabulous!!!! Xxxx

I can’t recommend Barn Bridal Boutique enough. The booking process was super easy & great communication all the way through.

Jane was just lovely, when we arrived, she took time to get to know me & my wedding party, gauging the type of wedding we were having, to what type of dress I had thought of.

She took us through to the dress area & we went through the dresses in my size & styles she thought I may like. I must have tried on 10 dresses, at no point did I feel uncomfortable, Jane made everything easy & natural, talking me through each dress…I couldn’t have asked for better! With some of the dresses we tried belts, necklaces, veils to give me an idea of how small changes can make the dresses even more perfect!

In the end I said Yes to the dress & was over the moon & we all got a celebratory glass of Prosecco!

Please do consider trying here, you won’t be disappointed! Also the dresses are very reasonable…which really helps when paying out for a wedding!

Amy Toop    Suffolk   

I went with my niece and it was a lovely personal experience for her gorgeous dresses & lovely venue! Would highly recommend!

Denise Fenn    Dunmow, Essex

Cannot wait for the big day now!

Charlotte Williams   

I'm getting married next Oct in Greece and found barn Bridal online. It was so easy to book and I loved how you can pick 3 dates.
Jane really made me feel special and that it really was all about me. I was open to trying any style of dress and she really paid attention to where I'm getting married and what type of dress would suit me. I had such a lovely morning and she was so welcoming and friendly. She never rushed me or made me feel like I was on a time limit. She really interacted with the People I had with me and got everyone involved. She's very smily and happy which really does help. I wasn't pushed into nothing either or made to hurry up with picking a dress. She allowed me plenty of time and to try on my 2 favourite dresses with the vail and flowers. Overall I had a really lovely morning with Jane and of course said yes to the dress.. thank you so much ❤️

Jess    Harlow   

Jane was absolutely amazing. I’d been to other dress shops and felt deflated and dreading dress shopping again. Jane knew exactly what she was doing, listened to what I wanted, used her expertise and found me my dream dress! Couldn’t be happier, thank you Jane!

Kate Axtell   

wow! such a beautiful shop, and jane is amazing so warm and friendly really knows what shes talking about I said yes to the dress which btw amazing prices and I left feeling like a princess highly recomend

hannah wolton    Colchester, Essex   

I absolutely love Jane's barn. As soon as you walk in, you feel a sense of calm and excitement all rolled into one. Jane made me feel very welcome and went over and above to make sure that I had the dress I wanted and that I felt happy and comfortable with my decision. I am so pleased to have bought a truly beautiful dress from a lovely lady in a unique shop (and at a great price too)! Thank you so much Jane. Laura xxx

Laura Allen   

I don't know where to start. I went to find my dream dress for our wedding next year and I was very nervous and went to other shops and was so overwhelmed with what decision to make From the minute I met Jane she was so welcoming and i didn't feel at all uncomfortable. Jane made the whole experience so much fun and had lots of great ideas to make what I envisioned become reality. When I said yes it was a celebration that you wouldn't experience in any other shop. Her dresses are great quality and fantastic price. I can't recommend Jane enough. We all had such a lovely morning! Thank you so much! Xxx

Jenine Saffuri    Braintree   

In short, Jane made my bridal dress dream come true!
Jane is a professional, caring and awesome individual. I booked my appointment swiftly and simply over the her website and arrived at the designated time to a beautiful set up bridal barn boutique.
This was for my second marriage so I was very worried about getting a dress similar to my first. Jane put my mind at ease and took note of key wants, for me it was showing off my tattoos on my back, and she went through her dresses one by one identifying ones that fit my body shape and wants.
We didn't stop at the first dress I felt good in, we tried on different styles and I ended up falling in love with something completely different.
I never could have found that dress without Jane, cannot recommend her enough!

Stephanie Atkins    Stansted   

Found the perfect dress from Jane at barns bridal! Jane was extremely welcoming and very easy to talk to about what (I thought) I wanted! Amazing array of beautiful dresses which Jane took the time to go through and give her advice on. All covid safe with precautions in place, but I still got the full on bride dress shopping experience! Would definitely recommend!

Becky Spencer    Hampstead, Essex   

I brought my daughter in to see Jane it was our second time looking for a dress. Jane was lovely, so friendly and spent the time to get to know what my daughter was looking for. We were there for about three hours and tried on every dress in her size. Some of them were stunning but one was the clear favourite and nothing like my daughter would have chosen, just as Jane had stated at the beginning of the appointment 😄. We came away with a dress and veil.
This appointment was so different to the first which looking back at now was cold and impersonal.
Thank you Jane for such a great experience.

Terri   

Literally have just left after four hours of trying on dresses! Honestly the most lovely place, tried on some beautiful dresses and I found the one! Jane was so patient with me and I couldn't thank her enough I think I must have tried every dress in the shop came away with a veil and tiara too so happy! Thank you so much!

Becca Molton   

The Barn Bridal Boutique is a wedding dress paradise. Jane has created a beautiful haven with gorgeous dresses and a calm tranquil atmosphere. The fact that it is exclusive - you are the only client there - is great for those with social anxiety or for those who suffer with their nerves. Jane is wonderful. I really appreciated her honest opinion, she is totally invested in you feeling wonderful. There is a varied selection of styles to try. I found my dress and am overjoyed with it. Thank you Jane.

Harriet    Bristol   

Had the most amazing experience with Jane at Bridal Barn Boutique time was no issue tried on every dress in my size and I said yes to the dress 🎉🥂🍾
Would totally recommend Jane to anyone.
Thanks again Jane xx

Lucy   

Where do I start this little barn is a peace and calming haven for brides like me! If you have any nerves or any worries about going wedding dress shopping stop here...... Jane is the perfect person to calm your nerves and point you in the right direction of which dresses will suit you. Jane was more than Wonderful in every way from the moment she opened her door to greet us for my appointment and I even said yes to the dress all thanks to this amazing lady I'm so glad I found this lovely little bridal barn. Thank you so much Jane x

Jane Brooks   

I cannot recommend Barn Bridal Boutique enough. From the moment my daughter and I walked through the door Jane made us feel so special. The ambiance was perfect and my daughter was made to feel special. She found the most beautiful dress, veil and tiara for an amazing price. Jane is an amazing lady who deserves every bit of praise for a wonderful service. XX

Lynda Morys   

Truly an experience I will always remember! I visited Jane at The Barn Bridal Boutique with my mum and sister and it was everything I hoped it to be. This was my first time trying on wedding dresses so I didn't know what to expect. Jane made us so welcome and we discussed my wedding theme and favourite styles over a cuppa to begin with! I then began to try on dresses and Jane let me take my time, allowing me to find the style I loved. Jane gave great honest advice which also really helped! After trying on a number of dresses I found elements of different ones I loved, then Jane found the perfect dress that combined all these parts and I said YES to the dress! Jane cracked open a bottle of prosecco for us to celebrate which was a lovely touch and rounded the experience off perfectly!!
I would recommend The Barn Bridal to anyone, thank you so much Jane!

Becky    Essex   

Bought my wedding dress from Jane who has the most amazing collection of dresses in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It was an amazing experience and couldn’t be happier. Would 100% recommend.

Zoe    Colchester   

I honestly can not recommend Barn Bridal and Jane enough. It was the second shop I had been too, and after the way they made me feel in the first shop I wasn't looking forward to going. When I got there I was blown away by the barn it is amazing, the dresses are gorgeous and Jane was just what I needed to help find the dress.
3 hours later after trying on all the dresses I wanted and more, 'we said yes to the dress'
Please visit here even just to see how beautiful it is and have a fun day out looking.
The dress is amazing and we had the best time xxxx

Sharon O'Brien   

My daughter and I visited barn bridle boutique. From the very moment we walked into the shop, Jane was very welcoming. She offered us tea and coffee. The bridal suite is beautiful with lots of gorgeous dresses. Jane shuts the shop to make your experience as pleasurable as possible. Jane explained to us how it works. Giving us the prize range of the dresses. This was a really good idea I thought as my biggest worry was my daughter would pick up a dress I just simply could not afford. How wrong was I straightaway I knew the most expensive one in the shop would’ve been affordable “ so I became relaxed knowing my daughter could have whatever she wanted to have. Jane takes the time to listen to what type of style you would like. We found the dress and my daughter looks amazing. Jane gave us a nice bottle of prosecco to celebrate. I personally can’t thank Jane enough for the time and effort she put into helping my daughter choosing the right dress with us . Your honesty is impeccable hope your business remains a success for the future, well earned, well deserved, beautiful lady thank you Jane xx

Martine Meakings    Essex   

Wow! What an experience! I've just got home from my first ever trial of trying on dresses so visiting Jane at the Bridal Barn couldn't have been a better experience! I am so glad that I read the previous reviews (which all raved about how perfect it is) & I will 100% recommend to any bride to choose the dress of your dreams from the stunning collection. Jane clearly knows her stuff; couldn't be more helpful and honest and allows you plenty of time to try on as many dresses as you like in a beautiful, clean converted barn. Every bride deserves the service Jane provides to make you feel special. Thank you so much xx

Kerry    Silverend   

I recently purchased my wedding dress from Jane and I couldn't have had a more positive experience. Jane made us a tea when we arrived and took the time to find out about me, my fiancé and our wedding, as well as what I was looking for in a dress. Jane was incredibly friendly and relaxed, and I felt I could be completely honest with her about what I liked and wasn't so keen on about each dress. She listened to my feedback and selected gowns based upon that until we found "the one". Jane also made sure each gown was accessorised before we revealed it to my mum and maid of honour, so we really got the full picture. The bubbly when I said yes to the dress was a really nice touch, too. Thank you, Jane - no one, especially me, expected finding my wedding dress to be that easy!

Nikki    Basildon, Essex   

Jane, Thank you so much for making my experience wonderful. I was so nervous about going dress shopping, being plus size too it just made it very hard for me to bring myself to try on dresses. You made me feel very comfortable and welcome, and put my mind at ease.

AND I SAID YES TO THE DRESS! It was just perfect and I have you to thank for that Jane. x
Thank you x

Rebecca   

I visited Jane recently with my mum and mother in law to be. From start to finish Jane made us all welcome, calm and we all felt so relaxed. The whole experience was perfect and would recommend the Barn Bridal Boutique to anyone looking for the perfect dress. Jane listened intently to the things I liked and disliked. She truly went above and beyond.

Sarah Monks   

A beautiful boutique with excellent customer service from the lovely Jane! Would highly recommend. Extremely professional, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Jane helped me find my dream dress, thank you SO much!

Louiza   

Jane made me feel at ease and knew exactly what I should try on to go above my comfort zone without being too pushy. Boutique had lovely ambience too. It was all so lovely I got a dress. A dress which was not even in my vision but I love it! Thanks so much Jane

Amy Bridgman   

Couldn’t recommend Bridal boutique enough! Was an amazing experience from start to finish - Jane listened to exactly what my kind of style was and picked out the perfect dresses based on what we spoke about and… I found THE dress! I couldn’t be happier it, I’m over the moon! Thank you so much Jane!

Eleanor simpson   

Said yes to my dress today!!! Five of us went into not fazed at all we was welcomed with open arms teas and coffees. I was the nightmare bride that new excatly what I wanted after seeing one dress at a wedding fare and nothing else would do. But being very patient with me we went over some different styles/designs but then it was time for that one the one I see weeks earlier on a mannequin at a fare. Before it was even done up I decided that was it the one. And everyone loved it and agreed. And then popped open a bottle to celebrate with my family and friends.. Thank you for making it such a great experience. I can't wait to wear it again but this time when I say I do.. 😀

Sara Bolton    Harlow, Essex   

I found my dress!!!! I still can't believe it, I was so nervous but Jane totally put me at ease. She is lovely, professional and has a beautiful shop and stunning dresses.
I'm so pleased with my dress and can't wait for my day now. Thank you Jane X

Katie   

Fantastic service, couldn't have asked for more. Friendly staff, felt instantly comfortable and found THE DRESS I have been looking for. 10 out of 10 would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

Claire Heavingham    Notley, Essex   

Felt so relaxed and at ease at Barn Bridal! Had such a huge selection of dresses and I found my dream dress! Highly recommended!!

Bronwyn Turner    Braintree, Essex   

I had given up hope before I went to Jane at Barn Bridal. I'd convinced myself to settle for a dress that I wasn't very comfortable in, that didn't make me feel special, and that didn't even fit. Being plus size I had tried on dresses far too small for me and told to 'use my imagination'. It left me feeling like I never wanted to try on another dress again!.... But after I had explained this to Jane, she told me of a friend that had gone through a similar experience, which prompted her to make sure none of her brides ever felt that way, the experience she gave me was nothing short of incredible. Like a fairy godmother she listen to me and guided me to the most beautiful dress. For the first time ever she made me feel like the most beautiful person, who wasn't afraid to look at herself in the mirror. In fact, once I looked I didn't want to stop looking!! Thank you Jane from the bottom of my heart for providing me with the most amazing experience, i'm so grateful for your kindness and your professionalism, and for knowing exactly what it was I wanted ( I didn't even know!!). If any plus size brides are out there, anxiously worrying that they won't find a dress, then don't hesitate to book with Jane, I wholeheartedly know that this lady with have you feeling like the princess you deserve!

Selina   

So now I can finally write my review! Visited Barn Bridal back in January not long after having a baby so I wasn't looking forward to it too much.
Jane was amazing, she made me feel very comfortable and confident (or maybe that was the Prosecco she provided?!)
I had a fabulous day and a lovely experience. Not only did I find one dress but two!!
I got married in Italy this month and had two ceremonies, a legal one and a symbolic one and both dresses were perfect for each location.
What made it even better was the price....two dresses for the price of one in most bridal shops. An absolute steal!
Highly recommend this boutique and this very lovely lady!
Thank you Jane xx

I came to barn bridal boutique in April & met Jane, she made me feel very welcomed as a plus size lady, I was very concerned & worried that I wouldn't find anything but Jane put me at ease. I found my dress 😍😍 but unfortunately it didn't fit, Jane took my measurements & sent them away and today September 16th I picked up my dress which fitted like a glove I felt so beautiful & confident. Thanks to Jane for making my experience so enjoyable would definitely be spreading the word to my friends.

Kate    Colchester   

I could not recommend Jane and Barn Bridal Boutique enough. I was extremely anxious about going wedding dress and shopping and had kept putting it off. A friend of mine stumbled across this boutique when researching places to go, and I am so glad she did. As soon as you enter the boutique you feel relaxed and at ease. It is beautiful inside, it is a place I could quite happily sit in all day. Jane makes you feel very welcome and special from the off. She asks all the right questions to help you find the perfect dress for you. She understands your big day and the look you are going for and recommends dresses to suit this and your body shape. Jane lets you try on as many dresses as you like. You do not feel rushed or pressured into choosing or purchasing anything. Due to the amazing experience I was able to find the dress of my dreams. It was so lovely to celebrate after with a glass of prosecco. I am just so sad the experience of dress shopping is over but I cannot wait to wear my dress on my wedding day.

Natalie Masson    Witham   

What can I say,Jane is very professional and very welcoming at barn bridal boutique. She let me try so many style dresses and helped me find the 'ONE' . I come away with dress and jacket at a FANTASTIC price.i couldn't recommend a better fitter and bridal shop.thanks for everything Jane !

Alisha   

Thankyou Jane for making this such a lovely experience for us all. 2 days ago I visited this boutique with my 2 daughters and Grandaughter. Jane made us all feel very welcome from the start and put us all at ease. The range of dresses, in my daughters size, was amazing. Jane was extremely helpful and knew which styles would suit my daughter. We came away with the perfect dress. Would definitely recommend this boutique.

I was extremely nervous about trying on wedding dresses, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find something that fit or suited me but 5 minutes with Jane and that all disappeared, my mum and I were offered tea or coffee on arrival and we had a lovely chat with Jane. Jane knew exactly which dresses suited me and was so helpful. I walked away with my dream dress and we even celebrated with a glass of Prosecco! Thanks again Jane, you made my experience magical!

Vicky    Witham   

I said “yes” yesterday at Barn Bridal! Jane was so welcoming and attentive and having the whole shop to yourself was just perfect. It’s all about you and your dress. Plenty of space to bring a few guests with you and a wonderful selection of dresses to choose from - all at very reasonable prices. Thank you Jane for all your help, I can’t wait to wear my dress on my wedding day!

Well.... what can I say other than amazing!! I was taken to Barn Bridal by my mum and sister as a complete suprise and was absolutely gob smacked, to be greater by Jane who is a lovely lovely lady so honest and passionate about her clients and dresses. 1 to 1 service which made me feel so comfortable. I tried pretty much all the dresses in my size which was a lot.... Then I said YES to my dress!! I would highly recommend Barn Bridal Boutique to anyone! So well priced to which was a bonus! Thank you x

Jess Brewer    Feering, Essex   

I had such a lovely morning here with my mum and sister. Jane made me feel so comfortable. The boutique was lovely and had such a variety of beautiful dresses. The fact that the appointment is for you only makes it a very personal and special experience. I would highly recommend this place and will always remember it as the place where I said ‘yes’ to the dress!

Claire    Braintree   

Barn bridal was absolutely wonderful not only were my mum and I made to feel really welcome she knew just what would suit me and my wonderful dress surpassed all my expectations. I didn't think I would ever feel as amazing as I did on my wedding day. Thank you Xxx

Emma Lisa Williams   

I would seriously urge people to visit this store. I had the best experience trying on dresses with my mum and friends. By far the best atmosphere and Jane was so lovely. Really helpful and stunning dresses. Great price too. Sadly I'd fallen in love with my dress somewhere else already and couldn't change my mind. But I did feel like I wanted to buy from Jane.

Jessica Foley    Halstead, Essex   

I cannot recommend Barn Bridal Boutique highly enough!! Jane really does go above and beyond with all of the lovely touches that make a visit to the Barn so special.The barn itself is absolutely stunning and having been to several bridal stores in Chelmsford this was a very pleasant change from cramped/dark changing rooms I had previously experienced! Jane is incredibly patient and really passionate about what she does. Not only did Jane find my beautiful dress but also gave fantastic advice in respect of a seamstress and florist! A visit to Barn Bridal is an absolute must for anyone looking for a wedding dress!
Thank you so much Jane!! I can't wait to wear my dress! xxx

Sarah Elizabeth   

I was very nervous travelling to the boutique, it was my first & only place I ended up going dress shopping. I can't thank Jane enough for how she greeted me & made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived, I had the best experience regardless of doing it by myself but with Jane I most certainly didn't feel alone, we chatted and she made me feel so comfortable and confident and I'm so in love with my dress, I can't wait to wear it for my big day & blow my partner away ♥️
Jane is so friendly, warm & effortlessly so professional. She really knows her Job and you can tell she enjoys doing what she does as it shines through ❤️

Josie    Lidlington, bedfordshire   

Wow wow wow!
I'm not getting married until next year so just went initially went to look and see what kind of dresses I liked. I was really open minded!
Jane thank you so so much for an amazing experience. The shop is gorgeous and so are you too!
I highly recommend everyone to go. You will not be disappointed!!
Oh and I said YES to the dress!

Julie Smith    Chelmsford, Essex   

Couldn’t recommend Bridal boutique enough! Was an amazing experience from start to finish - Jane listened to exactly what my kind of style was and picked out the perfect dresses based on what we spoke about and… I found THE dress! I couldn’t be happier it, I’m over the moon! Thank you so much Jane!

Blaize   

So today was my first time trying on dresses, really didn't know what to expect. However we arrived and straight away Jane made us feel welcome and put us at ease, she didn't feel like a stranger at all, I felt so comfortable around her. After trying on a number of dresses, some I knew just wouldn't suit me. (And so did Jane) I narrowed it down to just two. Jane was so patient and even asking to try on THE DRESS twice, I knew deep down that was the dress for me. I can't thank Jane enough. For the time and understanding she put in with helping me. i now have to wait a yr before I can finally wear my perfect dress. I would recommend any bride to be to go to Jane. Just amazing and I can't believe what I got for value for money. Xx

Amy   

Thank you so much Jane for all your help and advice. You made the experience of finding my wedding dress, even in the midst of a pandemic, a really lovely and memorable occasion. I absolutely love my dress and am so glad that I came to you to buy it. Thank you again. Best wishes.

My experience at barn bridal was above amazing , after having a crisis yesterday with my original dress being ruined by a seamstress I found, Jane gave me an appointment for today and helped me find the dress of my dreams with 10days to go until my wedding I was panicking and stressed like I’ve never been stressed before!
Jane pulled it out the bag. I was so nervous and not being body confident I was put at ease straight away, welcomed with a gorgeous cuppa and we starting looking. I tried 2 dresses on and I just knew my dress was the one and didn’t need to try no more, there was no pressure no rush just pure care and reassurance. Jane has sorted out my alterations and all will be done before our big day . I cannot thank Barn bridal enough it was an experience I’ll never forget and Jane is a true Angel. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know . From the bottom of my heart, thank you xx

Amy   

The day I said yes to the dress! Cannot recommend the lovely Jane and her beautiful boutique highly enough... after 3 hours of trying on the most stunning , fantastic value dresses, I found the one! This is everything finding your dream dress should be, a wonderful, personal experience! Xx

Danielle Lovett   

My daughter-in-law to be and I have just had a wonderful afternoon wedding dress shopping at Barn Bridal Boutique. All the dresses were truly amazing and very reasonably priced. The beautiful shop is an absolute delight and Jane the owner is fantastic, she was so helpful and kind. I can not recommend this shop highly enough. I wish we had gone to this shop first! Many, many thanks to Jane we could not be happier with the beautiful dress, veil and tiara x

Jo    Wickham Bishops   

I finally found my dress after visiting barn bridal ! Jane was lovely, patient and great with advise. I felt very comfortable and a great atmosphere.
I defiantly recommend 😃

Kelly    Witham   

I visited Barn Bridal Boutique 2 days ago and could not recommend this beautiful place enough. Jane made us all feel so welcome straight away. She took her time to listen to what I was looking for but also encouraged me to be open and try on a variety of styles. At no point did I ever feel rushed. The dresses are all absolutely stunning. I came away with the most PERFECT dress and I cannot wait to wear it on my special day. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jane. What an outstanding experience!

Lauren Gladwell    Essex   

A really lovely experience with Jane and her beautiful dresses. Thoroughly recommend any bride-to-be paying her a visit, thank you Jane!!!Xx

Sam Cheung   

I can honestly say that when I set out to find my dream dress.... I was excited but also very apprehensive. Being a plus size bride, the idea of not being able to find anything to fit me terrified me. Jane was absolutely fantastic and made me feel at ease from the word go. She made me feel special, confident and most of all beautiful. There was no clock watching and she dedicated so much of her time to helping me try on every single dress 👗 to make sure I explored all of the available options. After my initial visit I narrowed the search to three stunning dresses and Jane was very accommodating, fitting me in last minute to allow me to come back with my mum in order to make my decision. It was lovely to be treated like a princess for the day and James advice on veils, tiaras etc was invaluable. Jane obviously has a real passion for what she does and I cannot reccomend the Barn Bridal boutique highly enough. Thank you so much xxxxx

Stephanie   

I found my dress!!!!! Jane was very nice and pleasant, I tried on several dresses whilst there, she was very nice to my grandma and took my opinions into account,, im very happy with my dress and how Jane reacted. Thank you so much all our love Sandra and her grandma x

I had such a wonderful experience at Barn Bridal! It really felt like Jane put a lot of thought and care into her advice and suggestions, the dresses were all so beautiful and obviously well cared for. I felt really comfortable and found my perfect dress at an affordable price! Jane is good at reading people and quickly worked out what styles I’d like and what things I didn’t even think to ask for but loved. A brilliant experience and I’m so glad I said yes to the dress!

Sophie Mortimer   

Went along today for my appointment and was greeted on the drive by Jane who was so friendly. My mum and me were offered refreshments so Jane could ask me about my wedding plans and ask about wedding dress ideas, it was such a lovely and relaxed environment. After chatting i was taken through to the barn which was beautiful. I had time to look through and try on as many dresses as i liked and i never felt rushed. Jane was very knowledgeable and guided me through the appointment and always included both me and my mum with any choices or ideas. I never expected to say yes to the dress but i did and the dress was absolutely stunning, i felt like a princess, would definitely recommend a visit to barn bridal

Holly P    Rettendon   

I can't thank Jane enough for this special moment. I was so lucky to find my perfect dress and Jane had picked out so many beautiful ones I couldn't choose at times. It is such a hidden gem and I am over the moon I found this beautiful barn.

Maddison    Braintree   

I had not really looked at wedding dresses at all and had no idea what I wanted or what to expect when I arrived at Jane's Barn Bridal Boutique with my mum and two sisters. I felt quite nervous. Jane quickly put me at ease with tea and a friendly chat before helping me to try on a wide variety of styles without making me feel rushed. The prices of all the dresses on offer were very reasonable and there were accessories available to try on to get an overall feel for the complete bridal look. Jane had lots of useful insight to share and is clearly an expert in her field. She took the time to consider my personality and desire for comfort and happily as a result, I found my dress! Jane made the occasion feel very special, in the intimate surroundings of the boutique (with just Jane and my family) we could celebrate in a relaxed atmosphere! Jane provided a bottle of prosecco and kindly took family photos of me, my mum and sisters which I will always treasure. Thank you Jane, I highly recommend Barn Bridal Boutique.

Katie Smith    Sudbury   

I could not recommend Jane enough, from start to finish she was professional, helpful and kind. I went into the shop thinking of a dress from another shop that was over my budget thinking that nothing would compare to that dress, well I was wrong. Janes shop is amazing, comfortable and her dresses are absolutely beautiful. I walked away that night with the most amazing dress without paying the hefty price tag. Thank you so much Jane for all your help, you are a complete treasure !!! Xx

Chloe    White notley   

My partner and I visited the bridal barn today to meet with Jane. As a same sex couple, Jane had her hands full with not 1 bride but 2 and found a way to accommodate us both at the same appointment.
The bridal barn has a beautiful setting, by appointment only so offers a one to one dedicated service and Jane is the most delightful, patient, attentive and professional host. We both tried on a variety of dresses as there was many different styles on offer in her boutique.

We never imagined we would both find "the one" and walk away with our dream dresses.

The dresses are reasonably priced and Jane also offered recommendations for people that can offer alterations.

Jane made our morning the most amazing experience and settled the nerves of 2 rather anxious brides to be. Nothing was too much trouble and despite us being Janes first same sex couple that wanted to shop together, she took her time with us both, created the perfect atmosphere and even managed to keep control of our 2 over excited "bridesmaids"

We can't thank Jane enough for an amazing experience. This place is a hidden gem and a must for all future brides.

Katy & Hayley   

Can't recommend this place enough. Jane immediately makes you feel so welcome! She went all out to make our bride feel special and gave her a real experience to remember. The shop is beautiful and the dresses are such good quality, and so many beautiful styles to choose from. The value for money really is the cherry on the top. Our bride was very happy! Make sure to book a visit! X

Danni Joyce    Notley, Essex   

The best service from beginning to end!! Loved every second of finding my dress. You're made to feel so special. It's all the little touches from Jane that make you feel that extra special that really does make it such an amazing experience. I cannot recommend this bridal boutique enough.
I can't wait to wear my dress on my wedding day!!!!

Lauren Nicola Springett    Braintree, Essex   

When I arrived at Jane’s beautiful bridal shop I immediately felt at ease and relaxed. Jane is a really genuinely lovely lady. We had a cup of tea while she asked me questions about my wedding day, and the sort of dress I had in mind. Jane then took care of the rest, she picked out dresses for me to try on. She clearly understood me and what I was looking for, as the first dress I tried on was the one, although I still tried on many more! It is the most beautiful dress and Jane is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and gracious and I had the best afternoon with my mum and her, full of laughs and tears over the dress! I cannot wait to get married to my future husband and feel like a princess in my dress! Thank you Jane! Xx

Stefanie    Weeley   

I visited Jane today and this was my first appointment to try dresses on for my wedding next year. She made me feel so welcome & ready to try on any dress. My mum , sister & I loved the full flowy conversation that was being held throughout the whole experience. I didn't know what to expect and I certainly didn't think I would find 'the one’' but I did!! The Barn is very cute & homey just round the corner from my mums in Braintree. I’m so happy that I found jane that It made me feel like I have something from back home now that I don’t live in Essex anymore. The dresses are so reasonable, I can’t wait to wear my wonderful dress June 2020 Thank you Jane xxx

Kirsty Kemp    Sunbury   

I visited Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique on Saturday with my mum on my first time dress shopping and I’m so glad I did. My experience was great from start to finish. Jane was so lovely, welcoming and knowledgeable. The boutique is beautiful and offers such a personal experience, plus a wide range of dresses.
When I left without a dress at the end of my appointment to think about my decision, Jane was very accommodating and let me come back on Monday to try the dress on again before I committed to buying it. We then celebrated with a glass of Prosecco which was a lovely touch.
I would highly recommend Jane and Barn Bridal Boutique to anyone. 💕

Kirsty    Chelmsford   

Visited this bridal shop today with my friend. Absolutely loved it! Service was amazing! Dresses were beautiful! Would deffo recommend to friends & family!xx

Stacey Key    Chelmsford, Essex   

I went to see Jane today with my mum and auntie, the shop is amazing and so relaxing. Jane is so friendly and reassuring. To begin with I wasn't sure on what suited me and what didn't but I had a few ideas and Jane is always one step ahead of you. Thankyou so much for a wonderful morning I can't believe I found my dream dress. Will definitely be recommending you to everybody I know! xx

Sian Bloomfield    Harlow, Essex   

Having recommended my dear friend to see Jane at the Barn Bridal Boutique & being part of the wedding dress choosing experience & yes!! it was a beautiful experience my friend bought the dress of her dreams! Jane was fantastic with her friendly professional approach and totally gave the bride a committed one to one personal experience with a beautiful ambience of bubbles and music to fit the occassion!!! A definite experience for any bride to be!

Sherridan Wood   

Amazing! The bridal shop is stunning and after visiting 2 already that day I knew as I walked in I would find my dress! Jane is so welcoming and listens to what you want and from somebody who is extremely body conscience she really looked after me and made me and my bridal party feel at home. The dress is perfect and at such a great price!!! It's everything I wanted and more. I couldn't recommend her strongly enough. Thank you so much Jane. All best for you and your business xxxx

Kerry Parfitt    Basildon, Essex   

From the moment I booked the appointment, Jane's warm and friendly personality shone through. The shop is stunning and I felt relaxed as soon as I arrived. The choice of dresses was amazing and I tried every style on to see what suited, Jane however had already picked out what she thought I'd love and she wasn't wrong. She listened to everything I said I liked and disliked and the final dress I tried on was simply perfect. I had a lovely experience finding my wedding dress and a large part of that was down to Jane. Thank you Jane for a lovely afternoon and being part of finding that special dress! X

Claire Palmer   

Jane is amazing and has a very special eye for detail and takes huge pride in finding the perfect dress for you. I wanted something super special for my friend especially as she doesn’t have much family here in the U.K. Jane was like a family member as she was honest and sincere and truly cares about your thoughts and views and will help you every step of the way. Such a beautiful barn, very unique and special and will truly make you feel so special. Whenever maybe I will get married in the future I will sure be visiting Jane to help me find the perfect dress. Thank you x

Annika    Essex   

I went to Barn Bridal Boutique recently as the Mother of the Bride. I was so impressed with Jane who made us feel so welcome and made my daughter's experience truly special. She didn't rush us at any point and spent time with us. Her knowledge and experience meant that we were able to find the perfect dress for my daughter and to be honest, I was amazed at the value for money. Every single dress she tried on was beautiful quality and yes, she said yes to the dress! The search is over, happy bride and happy Mum. Thank you Jane you're a star

Ruth    Essex   

Absolutely beautiful shop with a chilled atmosphere, stunning gowns and helpful advise and most importantly very reasonable priced dresses! Will recommend to all of my friends!x

She was friendly and chatty and gave honest advice and feedback.... And the prices!!! It's nice to find somewhere that does beautifully made dresses for reasonable prices.... I never thought I'd find a dress a beautiful as mine within my budget but hey there is one hanging in my living room now that came just under it.....
Only thing I can say to all the brides to be out there is please please visit here... You will be wonderfully surprised

Tracie cook   

Jane was amazing. She spent such a long time talking to me so that she could picture my wedding and exactly what I wanted. This is the sixth (maybe seventh) shop I've visited and I bought the first dress I tried on!

Abi Bradford    Leigh on sea   

I visited Barn Bridal Boutique over a month ago but have only just got around to leaving a review - all I can say is amazing service! From the moment I completed the booking form, Jane was prompt with replies and so helpful. I had suggested 3 dates and Jane managed to fit me in one of the earlier dates as I was quite busy for a few weekends so was limited on when I could come in! I came with my mum, nan and maid of honour. We came into a beautiful outdoor area with 2 lovely egg chairs and was offered a cup of tea. I was so nervous because this was my first dress shop and I did not know what to expect but Jane made me feel so much better straight away. We chatted about the wedding day and Jane got an idea of the sort of dress she thought I would wear. We went through every single dress and I was allowed to choose as many as I wanted - there were a lot! I tried on my first dress that Jane thought would be best for me and WOW! I felt emotional and so did my family. I went on to try on all the other dresses (we were there a very long time) and Jane was patient with me and listened carefully to my likes and dislikes. I was not under any pressure to buy any dresses and if I'm honest I did not think I would be buying a dress that day but I knew I needed to try on the first dress again. Jane gave me some accessories such as a veil, necklace and flowers so I could really get the feel for the dress. I felt the same emotion seeing it on and so did my family so I knew it was the one. I not only took the dress but loved the veil and necklace too! Thank you so much Jane for making my experience so amazing and producing a beautiful day for me and my family xx

Charlotte Stringer    Essex   

What can i say !!, what a fantastic afternoon , and i have my beautiful dress to show for it ! you made my mum and myself feel so welcome from the moment we stepped into your beautiful boutique , i was feeling nervous about my wedding dress hunting experience but you made me feel exactly how i wanted feel when i had found THE ONE , even shedding a tear � , not to add what a fantastic price . Thank you so much Jane xx

Kelly Watson    Jaywick, Essex   

I had a wonderful experience at Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane is delightful. She made my mum, my daughter and I, feel so relaxed from the beginning. Her calm, lovely manner is just what you need. Jane really knows how to make a bride feel comfortable and her expertise made me confident in the dress I chose.
The whole experience was amazing and I’m glad I found Jane. I would highly recommend this beautiful boutique.

Amie    Essex Braintree   

Such a beautiful shop, amazing selection of dresses- every one was stunningly beautiful, making a decision very difficult! Jane's service was fabulous, would 10/10 recommend.

Rachel Crick    Chelmsford, Essex   

Me and some of my bridal party had the most amazing time with Jane yesterday. She is so lovely and really takes the time to understand you and what you want!

Had a fabulous morning at Barn Bridal Boutique this morning! Jane made me feel so comfortable, special and she helped me to find my dream dress. Jane offered advise without being pushy whatsoever or making us feel rushed. There were so many beautiful dresses to choose from, and I have definitely found my dream dress 😍 With everything going on, it was really lovely to have a special morning and feel like a bride! 👰‍♀️💍🥂

Heidi steele    Maldon   

I literally cannot recommend Jane and her beautiful collection enough!

This was the fourth dress shop that I had been too and as soon as I walked through the door I knew that we were going to find the one!

All beautiful quality and Jane really understood my body type and tastes, she took her time and made me feel relaxed and comfortable!

We said yes to the dress and I cannot thank Jane enough! X

Chloe A stressed out Bride    Chelmsford   

Jane is amazing! Not only did she allay my fears as a plus sized bride, she was genuine in her guidance and compliments. I couldn’t have asked for more on my appointment, an intimate, one-to-one experience with only the two of us in the store and Jane giving me her complete, undivided attention. After trying on several dresses, I left the store with my dream dress in hand. Thank you Jane for listening to my concerns, making me feel like I was the most important customer you had ever attended to and for creating a really pleasurable experience. I won’t forget you! Jenniffer x

Jenniffer    Bocking   

I was so nervous and anxious to go dress shopping as this was my first time trying on a dress. Jane made me feel so at ease along with my family. She engorged me to try on everything just to be sure and I was so happy her I found the one! Would definitely recommend Barn Bridal to anyone and Jane was so kind and helpful, she really made the experience!

MJ SULLIVAN    Colchester   

Me, my mum, nan and 2 bridesmaids had the absolute pleasure of going to Barn Bridal last week and meeting Jane! We had such an amazing time, and I can’t believe we found THE dress!! Jane made the whole experience absolutely amazing, we didn’t feel rushed at all and I got to try on as many dresses as I liked even though we found the dress after about an hour! I couldn’t recommend Jane and Barn Bridal boutique enough! Thank you so much xx

Drew    Essex   

Me and my mother went to The Barn Bridal boutique after visiting a number of wedding dress shops in the Chelmsford and Maldon area. I have also looked in London as well and hadn't found anything close to what I would like. We had lovely hospitality and Jane took the time to chat get to know us and hear about the wedding plans. I tried a variety of dresses and then found the one I really loved, Jane was so complimentary the whole way through the afternoon and really made me feel comfortable! I am so happy with my dress and how it fits like a glove but also for how good the pricing is! She made it really special and I loved the whole experience!

Lydia Mugford    Maldon   

I cannot thank Jane enough for a lovely experience with my friends and family relaxed, personal and professional especially when I was feeling self conscious about being semi naked in front of a stranger she put me at ease and helped me find my dress. The shop itself isn’t huge but it has everything you need an array of beautiful dresses to choose from. Everyone had a great time ❤️👰🏻

Laura   

Thank you so much Jane for your expert advice & friendly welcome you gave to myself & my bridesmaid, you listened to me on all my requirements & gave me the confidence to try on other styles. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience & came away with the perfect dress. The place is gorgeous, with lots of extra touches to make you feel special, i would definitely recommend Barn Bridal to anyone looking to find their dream dress! .

Elaine Bland   

I would love to rate Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique higher than 5*****
Jane went above and beyond to make my experience the best! I couldn't have imagined feeling better than the way I did tonight when I found 'The One'.
I'm so glad I met Jane in Chelmsford high street 2 years ago just when she was opening the shop and she gave me a flyer! How that day has paid off now! Thank you so so much and I'm sure il be back over before the wedding for jewellery and more, thank you Jane! xxxxx

Amy Finnigam   

I would thoroughly recommend Barn Bridal Boutique! Jane was excellent and very friendly. I knew what style I wanted and Jane quickly saw that it was the right style for me too. Jane was very accommodating as I had bought my 7 bridesmaids and my mum with me. She has a huge range of dresses! They are all amazing quality and the prices were really reasonable. You can see she has a huge passion for her job. Everything you need to go with your dress is all there too. You can spend as long as you need here, she will make sure you leave 100% happy. Therefore you can try on as many dresses as you like in as many different styles. She will always assist and advise you.
Thank you so much Jane, I can't wait to wear my dress this year! :)

Kelly Rogers   

I have just bought my dress from Jane and I loved the entire experiance. A nice cup of coffee on arrival. I have tried on a couple of dresses and for the 4 hours that we spent there I have never felt rushed at any point. My sister-in-law said that she would get married again ( to the same men) just to go through that experience. Highly recomend going there.

Timea    Halstead, Essex   

Honestly couldn't recommend Barn Bridal Boutique or Jane enough.

From the moment I emailed to book an appointment, right through to leaving with my dress 😍 I felt so looked after.

Jane takes a real interest in who you are and what your looking for. The day is not rushed, the environment is very relaxing and calming too. Jane also gives great advice and completely understands how important it is for her brides to have a wonderful day.

Thank you so much Jane for all your help and time and having my dress in your boutique ☺️ oh and for a great lunch recommendation too 😁 x

Even if you unfortunately don't find your dress with Jane, you will still walk out with a smile on your face and a warm feeling inside.

Definitely go visit the boutique xxxx

Kerri    Essex   

I can't recommend Barn Bridal enough, it was the only boutique I visited based on previous testimonials and Word of Mouth.
The whole experience of finding the right dress, "a journey" as Jane suggested was magical. My mum and I had a wonderful afternoon. I just can't thank Jane enough for such a friendly, professional and welcoming experience. It was fun! I tried so many stunning dresses all at fair prices, to suit any budget, it was hard to pick just one but I did find 'the perfect' dress and I can not wait to wear it on our big day. Thank you Jane. Looking forward to showing you the photos!x

Najette   

I highly recommended Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane is extremely warm and welcoming and makes choosing your wedding dress the most special experience. Thank you Jane so much x

Jackie Swann    Braintree   

Barn bridal was the first shop that I had visited. I felt nervous and unsure what to expect. Jane is absolutely lovely and makes you feel so comfortable through out the whole experience. She is so patient and spends time at the start to get to know you and your likes and dislikes. I had the biggest bridal party she has ever had and she managed it like a pro. I found the dress of my dreams which had everyone bawling their eyes out (especially me) I love my dress so much thank you Jane xxxxx

Molly   

I visited Jane a few weeks ago and had the most special wedding dress shopping experience! We were with Jane all morning and I tried on just about every dress in my size. From the moment we got there Jane couldn’t have been more welcoming as we chatted over a cup of tea before getting down to trying on the dresses. She was so encouraging and helpful and I didn’t feel at all rushed at any point. The choice of styles that Jane keeps in stock is vast and she adds accessories along the way to really bring each dress to life. I would highly recommend Jane to any bride to be... her knowledge, experience and friendliness make this special time a really memorable experience. Thank you so much Jane!

Hannah    Wickford, Essex   

What a wonderful experience I had finding my dress at Barn Bridal Boutique. With only 7 weeks to go to my wedding I needed to find a dress quickly. Jane took the time to chat to me first about what I was looking for and made me feel at ease. She knew exactly which dresses I would like and made the whole experience a great one. I found my perfect dress and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barn Bridal to anyone. Thank you Jane xxx

I'm so glad I chose to come to Jane's shop. I was feeling abit nervous but we had a chat about the type of dress I was looking for over a cup of tea and I inmediately felt at ease. We then got started - she picked out some beautiful dresses for me to try on and her honest, supportive guidance was so appreciated. Jane was so patient and I never felt at all rushed. It was clear that it is so important to Jane to make the bride to be feel special and she did just that. With Jane's guidance I found the perfect dress and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day - Thank you Jane

Suzanne West   

I had such a lovely experience with my daughters at the bridal barn! Jane was amazing and managed to fill my classic with a modern twist brief perfectly. It was lovely having the whole place it made the experience feel extra special and really personal. I can’t thank or recommend Jane enough for all her help

Hayley    Hertfordshire   

I visited Barn Bridal Boutique today with my mum, dad & sister. As soon as we walked through the door Jane was so warm and welcoming to us and made the experience a lovely one. She made everyone feel comfortable with a cuppa. I was very open on styles but after choosing a few dresses and trying them on Jane knew exactly what style I preferred and we found the perfect dress which I fell in love with. She put me at ease the whole way through the appointment, despite me being on a very tight timeframe with a last minute wedding. Prosecco at the end to celebrate was such a lovely touch, and I can’t thank you enough Jane for today and for the favours you have pulled and for how kind you have been. You have honestly made the situation I am in a less stressful and happier experience, and I am forever grateful. I would recommend to anyone getting married to shop here for a dress!

Thank you for a lovely relaxed afternoon with my friend helping her choose her wedding dress. Thank you for your patience, your valuable input, attention to detail and your knowledgable insight. So glad we came to see you and can’t wait to see my friend wearing your dress on her wedding day.

Jane was extremely welcoming and helpful. I found my perfect dress. The Barn Bridal is a beautiful and special place to try on wedding dresses, would highly recommend. Would like to thank Jane for her time and effort in helping me find the right dress and also making me feel so welcome and comfortable x

Rebecca Moss    Colchester   

I visited Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique with my mum. Jane was incredibly welcoming and helpful from the outset. She listened to our feedback on each dress and ensured that both my mum and I felt part of the process. I found 'the one' and couldn't be happier. Beautiful dresses at great prices, but most importantly amazing service throughout. I would recommend Jane to any brides searching for their own perfect dress.

Sarah Prince    Basildon   

Such a lovely cute little Bridal boutique! Jane is brilliant the way she works, we had such an amazing experience... and I said yes to my dress!I would highly recommend going here, and so reasonably priced!

Laura Marie Foster    Braintree, Essex   

I was really nervous about wedding dress shopping and Jane was fantastic and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend Barn Bridal Boutique. Thank you so much Jane x

Gemma Fenn    Dunmow, Essex   

I was amazed at the number of fantastic dresses shown. My daughter looked great in everything she tried on. Jane was wonderful offering her expert opinion as well as making the whole experience comfortable and friendly. And YES we left with the most perfect dress and hair accessory. It really was the most beautiful start to the wedding preparations. Thank you so much Jane. A happy relieved Mum.

Stephanie's Mum   

Thank you so much Jane for such a lovely experience, and for giving us your time to find my dress! We all enjoyed it and thank you for allowing us all in your boutique for the appointment. I’m so thrilled that I have found her and the grin hasn’t left my face since we left you! Thank you so much

I would definitely recommend a visit to Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane was absolutely amazing from start to finish and gave a really personal experience. Even after finding 'the one' Jane still encouraged me to try on lots of different styles just to make sure!! The appointment finished with Jane popping open the bottle of prosecco to celebrate!!

Thank you Jane!! I really can't wait to wear it again!!

Katie Louise   

From the second I arrived with my bridal party we all felt instantly welcomed. Jane is so lovely, easy to talk to and she knows all there is to know about wedding dresses. There is a wide range of wedding dresses to choose from and not at any point was I made to feel rushed or feel that I was trying on too many and taking up too much time. My experience at Barn Bridal was by far the best experience I’ve had when going dress shopping! I would recommend every bride try this shop first as I don’t feel you will have a better more relaxed experience at any other.
Thank you so much Jane xxx

Sabrina Masucci    Braintree   

Where do I start I pulled up at this amazing barn feeling terribly nervous and unsure what I was walking into but was greeted by the amazing Jane on the driveway and to say I felt settled and all nerves had gone before I even stepped foot in the door was an understatement I couldn’t have chosen a better experience/ setting to find my perfect dress. And ofcourse we said YES to the dress and can’t wait to wear it down the isle.
Thank you so much Jane

Visited Barn Bridal last week, Jane understood my needs, what might suit me and encouraged me to try a variety of styles. No stress at all, which is a miracle as I was dress shopping with my 3 month old baby.
Such a personalised service - made to feel so welcome and special. I came away with the perfect dress and all at a reasonable cost too. Thanks Jane 😊

Anna Bray    Essex   

I can not praise Jane enough, she was excellent!! She made me and my family feel the most important to her at that very moment. Her attention to detail was exquisite and prices were extremely reasonable. I would recommend everyone to get their wedding dresses from here, I wish I could go again, I felt so special !

Sam Archer    Ongar, Essex   

I visited Barn Bridal, Jane was so welcoming and friendly. We sat for a while chatting about the big day and what I had planned. I then tried on so many different dresses, especially ones I didn't think would suit me. And then it happened and I found the one. I cannot thank you enough Jane for helping me find the right dress. I look at it every day and cannot wait to wear it next year. Thank you Jane ��

Samantha Austin-Neville   

Was really nervous going to try in dresses as loosing baby weight and feel uncomfortable but I need not have worried! Was put at ease straight away and tried on many dresses which made me look very slim and walked out with the perfect dress which u wasn't expecting! So hard to choose from! Would highly recommend!

Amanda   

Arrived at the boutique feeling very apprehensive. Jane quickly put me at my ease over a cuppa. The boutique is comfortable and cosy and a very welcoming, relaxing place to be. She asked lots of questions about my plans, likes and dislikes. Jane then helped me select a few dresses to try on, encouraging me to try a few that were a little different to what I thought I wanted.
As the appointment went on, I found i was relaxing and really enjoying the experience, and I dislike shopping at the best of times!
Jane was amazingly patient and at no point did I feel pressured to make a decision. In the end I went back to the second dress I tried on and knew it was the one! I honestly felt amazing in it! A bottle of bubbly was opened to celebrate!
I would highly recommend Jane and Barn Bridal. She really listens to what you want and she doesn't rush you. I was able to try as many dresses as I wanted.
So, a HUGE thank you Jane. I now can't wait for my wedding so everyone else can see the stunning dress!

Ann    Brainttree   

Thank you Jane for such a wonderful few hours and more so for helping me find such a stunning dress at such an amazing price! The boutique is gorgeous with some lovely touches. I had my daughter and 82 year old mum with me and we were all made to feel welcome and relaxed. Highly recommended! X

Lyn   

Well this was where I said yes to the dress! After trying on what felt like a million dresses I found the one, Jane was so nice and friendly, She knew exactly what she was talking about. I felt like I've known her for years she knew exactly what I wanted and made me try things in that I would never like but I loved on! We was constantly in contact before my first appointment, in given her an idea of the dress I wanted to try, etc... The place itself was perfect, lovely decor and beautiful arrangement of the dresses everything was clear to see, there's a lovely sofa for parents and friends to sit on which is clear for them to see you in your dress! Beautiful music was playing to calm the nerves. There's a variety of dress in all different sizes. And I can't thank Jane enough for helping me, your an honest, kind hearted woman! Literally the best! Overall this is a fantastic place to find your dress. 100% reccommnend! ��

Holly Grattan    Braintree, Essex   

Where do I even begin to start.. the amazing Jane.. quite literally the real fairy godmother! From the moment I stepped onto the gravel driveway, I had a very special feeling about this appointment! A warm welcoming from Jane, followed by a natter getting to know all about me and my day, followed by the most personable dress trying on experience. Jane not only listened to my brief and what I wanted, but she also ensured I’d gone back to dress styled I’d initially ruled out! Little did we know… the dream dress and chosen dress, had elements I had written off initially. Jane’s warmth allowed me to try dresses on that I thought wouldn’t be me and BAM, there is was, my perfect wedding dress. Lots of happy tears were shared, all the mums were made to feel so welcome and we toasted the moment with a gorgeous glass of bubbly. I truly can’t fault my time at Barn Bridal, thank you again. x x x x

Laura Hodgson    Benfleet   

Thank you for all the time you spent helping us find the perfect dress. Lovely to visit a boutique with so many dresses in my size, all in great condition and ready to take home.

I had a brilliant experience working with Jane. I felt comfortable, understood and happy the whole way through my appointment. Jane challenged me (in a good way) and by trying on everything she offered I was able to figure out what worked best for me. Being someone who often struggles with positive body image, especially in situations where everyone is looking at me, I can honestly say I felt confident and, dare I say it, beautiful the whole way through my experience. Jane is a vivacious, kind lady who will help you find your special dress.

Jess Ellinopoulou    Chelmsford   

I recommend this it will be a great experience for any bride and Jane will make them feel special.

Maggie Anderson    Essex   

Jane was unbelievable she made me feel so at ease and so comfortable. There was so many more dresses that were my style and Jane picked out one that I wasn’t so keen on! However her instincts were right as I ended up falling I. Love with the dress and took it home the same day! Her eye for detail is on point as I had ruled out a veil and tiara but Jane recommended some accessories that really made the dress. I cannot fault Jane and would 100% recommend her to all my friends and family x

Lauren lynes    Stanway, Colchester   

Jane at Barn bridal was so lovely and made me feel really comfortable at my appointment. Just from our initial discussion Jane knew which dress was for me and it ended up being the first one I tried on! She was incredibly accommodating of my family and made it a lovely memorable experience for us all.

Anna pawsey   

Today I said yes to the dress! Jane is so lovely and made me feel so lovely even after just having a baby!!! First appointment I brought my wedding dress!!! Wish I could go and hang out and drink prosecco with you every weekend!!!

Rebecca Louise Millard    Alresford, Essex   

I would highly recommend Barn Bridal! Jane is absolutely lovely and put me at ease right from the very first phone call. Being a plus size bride and someone who generally struggles to find clothes I like or fit me well, I was so worried that it was going to be a nightmare finding a wedding dress. Jane listening to my concerns and ideas and picked out some lovely dresses that fitted me great! I actually fell in love with the first dress I tried on but kept thinking surely the first one isn't "the one" so I kept looking. Jane was so helpful and talked through all the different options I could do in alterations if I wanted and let me try on as many dresses as I liked. She really did make me feel amazing! In the end I did end up buying the very first dress I tried on and cannot wait to wear it down the aisle!!

Ellie   

I visited Jane in June 2022 and found my perfect dress! I brought my Mum with me, and Jane made us both feel so welcome - which was important for me that my Mum also felt part of the experience. So many beautiful dresses to choose from and I felt very special with it being appointment only - there is no rush and all the attention is on you. Thank you so much Jane :o)

Alex    Rayleigh   

This was the first and only bridal shop I went to. I found a dress I loved!
Jane is so lovely and made the whole experience enjoyable and fun.
I can’t recommend barn bridal enough. The dresses are beautiful and you will enjoy every minute there. I can’t wait to wear my dress on my special day.
Thanks again Jane x

Everyone assumes shopping for a bride's dress is
fun, exciting and enjoyable but that's not always the
case. Firstly it's not a dress you have much insight
into you wear them rarely, the sizing never makes
sense and you know that 100's of people will be
staring at you in it... none of that equates to fun!
That's why choosing the right Bridal shop is
essential. You need someone to guide you, to listen
to you, to give you assurance and sometimes some
therapy!!! Jane at Barn Bridal has all these skills
and more if you are looking for an enjoyable
experience with expert advice, tonnes of knowledge and
experience you must go here. She will also gently
and kindly challenge you which is definitely one of
the most important parts of the journey... you may
have very fixed views but this lady knows her
dresses and her brides... Let her work her magic
and the magic will happen!

Sheena O’Brien   

So last night I said 'yes to the dress'. Jane was wonderful from the beginning and coped well with my screaming baby and over excited chatter box of an 11 year old. She showed me some beautiful dresses, knowing what would suit me and what wouldn't straight away. She also knew which one she thought would be perfect for me, and it was! Her advise was amazing and once I showed her my shoes we were all blown away by the perfect match. Thank you so much Jane you made my bridal shop such a magical wonderful experience and if I could give you more stars I would. Xxx

Emilie Veater   

I was very exasperated with 'normal' wedding shops. Sample sizes being way too big for me and I really struggled envisaging how a dress would look like on me once it was to my size. With only seven months to go the wedding I really didn't want to order a dress and then wait months for it be made to my size whilst paying a fortune at the same time! And then I found Barn Bridal. Booking my appointment I told Jane what kind of thing I was looking for. She said she had the perfect dress. It was the first and only one I tried on and it fitted like a glove, it indeed was perfect. I ended up buying a veil and a faux fur cape too which really completed the look for our late November wedding. I loved being able to walk out of the beautiful shop with my dress in my hand knowing it didn't need any alterations apart from shortening. I was so relieved that I had found my complete outfit and all a fantastic price! It must have been fate as Barn Bridal Boutique opened at the same time we booked our wedding - it was made for me!! Jane was a breath of fresh air and one which I desperately needed! Thank you!

Lauren lynes    Stanway, Colchester   

Where do I start….
I hope I don’t bore you but please read.
I booked an appointment here after my mum found them online after couldn’t get through to the place i initially wanted to try.
I knew I wanted more of a one to one session that are not offered at larger companies and I didn’t want to feel rushed. Also i wanted to support a local business from all the bad and unpredictable times.
Well Jane certainly ticked all these boxes. As we turned up Jane was waiting for us and we sat and discussed ideas with a Tea, from then I knew I was in the best hands.
We went through to the barn and Jane took me through all the different dresses and she explained them and we marked the ones I would try.
Fitting area I was nervous and I’m quite shy and Jane made me feel at ease even with my bra off. We chatted about everything and it felt like I had know Jane for a while.
The first dress I tried was the one my mum liked as she saw it when we walked in - I really liked it however as my first dress didn’t want to feel in love, so we tried more, Jane was honest and was open with her opinions and I explained what I liked and hated about the dress and we paddled through them, one I love how the top part was but wasn’t in love as I was with first dress.
First dress then went back on and we added accessories and I knew it was the one - my mum, maid of honour and Jane cried. Jane talked me through how parts could be changed to meet with what I wanted. Jane wasn’t pushy on accessories either which I liked as didn’t want to be pushed I to buying something I didn’t want.
NSo yes I said yes to the dress!

I didn’t think I would walk out with a dress as thought I would have to try so many dresses and so many places as I’m so undesisive and fussy.
Im soo happy with the dress and I’m sad Jane can’t be part of the rest of the journey but I will definitely be tagged her and her business in my wedding photos.
I will definitely be recommending Jane to any future brides and I wish you Jane all the best in the future!

After having my babies in December I was dreading wedding dress shopping in January but Jane made me feel so wonderful! I wasn’t really sure what I wanted or what would suit me after a negative experience elsewhere but Jane was happy to try everything on me and even put me in some of the dresses twice just to be sure! The dresses are beautiful and most of them I tried on I thought was “the one” but the dress I came away with was what I’d be dreaming about! I felt so beautiful and more importantly comfortable!! I can’t wait to wear my dress!! Thank you Jane xx

I can not put into words how amazing my experience was! I had not expectation to buy my dress but Jane understood me so well made a very emotional time much easier and she connected with me and my family to well!

Thank you for making me feel so at ease and helping me to find the dress that I feel beautiful in I can not wait to get married now !

I recommend Barn Bridal to everyone and anyone!

Irene Zinonos    Brentwood   

Jane greeted us at the door upon arrival, she was so friendly and welcoming. Initially we sat with cups of tea and discussed our wedding, how we met and what I’d already tried on. Jane pulled each dress out one by one and we decided together which ones to try on, unlike other places where you’re given a set number of tokens to choose dresses yourself. This allowed me to really consider each dress rather than just skipping past it which I loved! I was apprehensive as I’d tried dresses on in a few different places but hadn’t quite found the one but Jane put me at ease straight away and we tried loads of different styles on and I didn’t feel rushed at all! Finally I found THE dress and Jane was so complementary and kept my mum and sister involved all the way through. I’d highly recommend Jane, the boutique has such a luxury feel with absolutely beautiful dresses. I cannot wait to get the alterations done and to show off my dress. Thank you so much Jane!

Rachael    Braintree   

Me and some of my bridal party had the most amazing time with Jane yesterday. She is so lovely and really takes the time to understand you and what you want! The boutique itself is stunning, with so many dresses to choose from, also so reasonably priced! I cannot believe I found my perfect dress!! Would recommend this bridal shop to everyone!! Thank you again Jane! Xx

Samm Loring    Colchester   

Had an amazing experience and ‘said yes to the dress’. Jane was so helpful and patient with me. As a self conscious bride I was dreading dress shopping but the relaxed atmosphere and Janes knowledge on styles for body shape etc put me at ease and I’m over the moon with my dress 😁

Jessica   

Wish I had known about this great shop when I got married. Appointment only, exclusive use bridal dress shop. Lovely decor - beautiful dresses. Made to feel totally at ease by Jane who is very approachable, friendly and down to earth. Went here to chose my sisters wedding dress, was a truly enjoyable experience. Didn’t feel rushed and was great that we were only people in there as it felt really exclusive for us and much more special than other bridal shops can make you feel. And my sister said yes to the dress, fantastic prices. Dress, beautiful long detailed veil, belt and tiara for just over £1000. Take it home that day. Great place. Highly recommended

Vikki h    Colchester, Essex   

I visited Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique today to find the dress of my dreams and WOW did I find it! The experience was faultless from beginning to end, Me, my mum & my 2 sisters were made to feel super comfortable and welcome by Jane, I wasn’t rushed at all and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Jane is absolutely lovely & really knows her stuff. I’m so glad I was recommended Barn Bridal! Looking forward to my wedding day now! Thankyou Jane x

Samantha    Dagenham   

Fantastic from start to finish! Jane was easy to get hold of and very accommodating with appointment times. She asked me questions to get to know my vision of the day, before helping me to pick out dresses. Jane took me through the full process in a wonderful and relaxing way.

Gemma    Suffolk   

After a few unsuccessful and disappointing attempts to find a wedding dress I didn't have huge expectations when I made my appointment at Barn Bridal. I was so wrong and completely blown away by my experience there. Jane was friendly and welcoming. She took the time to get to know me and my likes / dislikes over a coffee. She then took me through almost every dress on her rails asking me which one's I'd like to try on as well as recommending some she felt would suit me (this was very helpful as she obviously has a good eye for what works and what doesn't - always keeping in mind any styles I had ruled out). we selected a good few and I worried I'd be taking up too much of her time but she insisted I take my time to make sure I made the right decision. I ultimately found my dress and I couldn't be happier. The service you receive here is one-to-one. The atmosphere and setting is romantic and there is no pressure to buy at all. I would recommend Barn Bridal to any one looking for the perfect dress for their special day.

Had the best time at Barn Bridal, Jane was so lovely she made the whole experience amazing! I was so nervous about finding a dress but Jane made me feel at home and knew exactly what I wanted! Thank you!

I had such a great experience at Barn Bridal. Jane made me (a very anxious bride) feel so relaxed and calm in her boutique. We felt like there was no rush, try on limits or time pressure which we had experienced elsewhere. Jane really takes her time to get to know your wants and needs from a dress.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with a dress but I did, as she helped me find the one! We never felt pressured into buying a dress there and then though, and Jane helped find complementary pieces that went with the dress so we could take home the entire look the same day!

Thank you so much again and I can’t wait to wear my dress next spring!

Emily L    Rayne   

I would highly recommend Barn Bridal Boutique. Jane is more than fantastic, every option is looked at and there is no clock watching. I have never felt so comfortable and I did say yes to the dress.
The prices are fantastic and there is no pushing to buy anything.
Thank you so much Jane

Sharon Upson   

It was such a lovely experience finding the perfect wedding dress. With no idea what I wanted Jane was able to pick out a few to try on and i fell in love with my dress on only dress number 2. Jane is great at what she does and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a personal experience. With full exclusive use of the shop and 1:1 attention its perfect if your nervous and dont like all eyes on you. Thank you very much!!

Pippa    Colchester   

My daughter Tracie cook has already said everything in her testimonial, I just want to say thank you Jane for helping her find the dress of her dreams at a price she could afford. I am spreading the word.

Jenny cook   

If you want 'the bridal experience' when purchasing your wedding gown, then definitely visit Jane. She made us feel incredibly welcome and the boutique itself is very attractive and well designed. My sister found a beautiful blush dress that was perfect for her. Everyone in the party was involved in the discussions, no matter how young, and the incredibly nice Prosecco was the icing on the cake! We all left feeling very special and even more excited for the big day! Thanks Jane xx

Zoe Watson    Colchester, Essex   

Jane was super lovely and helpful right from the first email. The appointment was relaxed and the choice of gowns was incredible. Together we selected several to try on and I was encouraged to try as many as I wanted - nothing was too much trouble. I ended up saying 'yes to the dress' to the first one I tried on - Jane knew which one I would love the most and she was spot on! The prosecco was a lovely touch too. Thank you Jane for making it a truly memorable experience!

Sam Darroch    Braintree   

What can I say? After being recommend by my sis-in-law to be, I was keen to make my appointment with Jane one of my first, and as it turns out it was also my last!

Jane was lovely, and she really knows what she's talking about. Having the time and space for one to one time with Jane was invaluable - I was able to try on a whole variety of lovely dresses during the three hours we were there, and I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. It's almost a shame that I found 'the one' on the night, as I'd like to come back regularly - there's nothing quite like trying on wedding dresses!

The barn itself was beautiful and so inviting. I brought my Mum and sister along, and they felt very included in the whole process, and we all had such a giggle - key ingredients for a memorable girly night out.

Would definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you Jane, I can't wait to wear my dress on the big day!

Holly Yates   

Today was a wonderful experience . It's a beautiful place, light and airy and Jane made me feel totally comfortable from the start.
There are so many dresses, every style to make comparisons and loads of accessories to try too. It was such a welcome contast to the chain stores and pushy assistants I've had so far that made me disheartened.
Highly recommended .
I can't wait to wear my dress!!

Erica Foulds    Great notley   

What a fantastic experience today with Jane at Barn Bridal.. Jane made my daughter feel like a million dollars and found the perfect dress for my baby ...
Nothing was too much trouble and Jane had the patience of a saint ... after nearly 3 hours with Jane we purchased the perfect dress ... would highly recommend Jane and her impeccable service .... Big Thank You to Jane

Jackie   

I had such a wonderful experience at Barn Bridal - Jane was so kind and knowledgeable and helped me choose the perfect dress for my wedding day. The pricing was very reasonable and I was made to feel comfortable from start to finish. I had such a lovely day - thank you Jane!

Katy Daniels    Stansted, Essex   

I came here to have a little look at dresses and wasn't planning on buying anything! I came away with THE dress, a veil and a tiara! I had the most perfect experience! The shop is breathtakingly beautiful and you can really tell Jane has put in all the little details! The dresses are all absolutely stunning and I literally could have tried them all on! Being plus size I was worried about dress shopping but Jane was perfect about advising what would look lovely on my shape! I can honestly say I have never felt beautiful in my own body until I put my dress on. Also there was no pressure at the end of the appointment to buy anything, I didn't feel pressured like I know brides do in most bridal shops. I felt as though I was an important customer whether I bought the dress then and there or six months later! Also the dresses are so reasonably priced and there's something to suit everyone! It was the perfect day thank you so much for a lovely day and for helping me find my dress! I wouldn't go anywhere else girls! Will be recommending this place to every single bride to be I know!! Xx

Ebony Perry   

I went with my daughter to view the wedding dresses available at Barn Bridal, my daughter had made the appointment, Jane took her time to show us all the dresses, I wasn't expecting my daughter to choose 1 that day after trying on 7 different styles she decided the 3rd one and the last 1 were both in the running and after about 15 minutes my daughter decided to buy the 7th and last 1 that she tried on, it fitted her like a glove and providing she doesn't loose any more weight it will not require any alterations now that's what I call a real win win situation and she looked absolutely stunning in the dress. Thank you Jane for all your help on the day and making our visit so pleasant.

Before I went to Barn Bridal Boutique, I had been to about eight dress shops and had tried on over 30 dresses. They were all very beautiful but none made me feel like I had found ‘the one’ – I felt like saying ‘yes to the dress’ was not as magical as TV, movies and other friends had made it out to be. I also felt very insecure about how I looked in each dress as none of the sample sizes (plus size or otherwise) fit my body very well to indicate how it would look on the day. Jane put me (and my mum!) at ease straight away and said she thought she had the perfect dress in my size based on what I said I really liked and wanted. She helped me put it on and I finally had the ‘fairytale moment’ everyone had told me about! I didn’t want to the dress off, but she encouraged me to try some others that I might have liked to make sure it was definitely ‘the one’! I couldn’t be happier and I cannot wait to put it back on when I get married next year! Thank you so much, Jane!

Leah Rider   

I went in with three very different ideas and came out with something completely different. Jane listened to what I wanted and learned what I did/didn’t like from each dress to deliver something that was perfect for me. She created such a relaxed atmosphere that I had so much fun. Thank you so much, Jane!

Lisa S    Essex   

Have just had a wonderful experience with Jane at Barn Bridal, after a brief chat we discussed what kind of styles I would like to try on and straight away Jane knew exactly what dress would be the ONE for me, turns out she was right! The dress was just beautiful and the service she provided was fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone needing to buy a wedding dress, plus the prices and quality are outstanding.
Thank you so much for all your help!

Kathryn Hewes    Great Leighs   

I came to Jane because I already had a wedding dress that I had fallen out of love with. I’m not sure I really loved it in the first place! Even though I had a little over a month to find a dress... that fitted... Jane assured me we could find the dress of my dreams together... and we did!!! I have just come away from my appointment, dress in hand and absolutely on cloud 9. I must of tried on over 10 dresses and Janes patience and calmness along the way really helped me to just think about what I wanted. Every single dress is of such superior quality, and Jane really does know her stuff!!! Thank you so much for for turning my nightmare into a dream, And it was lovely to find my dress with such a wonderful lady. Xxx

Georgina    Braintree   

For a bride to be who hates shopping and trying on clothes, wedding dress shopping was a daunting prospect at the start of the week but I am sooooo glad we met Jane at Barn Bridal Boutique! She made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and after cuppa and a natter and only a couple of dresses later we were all in tears when we found THE ONE! Dresses in all shapes and sizes and a fantastic one to one experience I would highly recommend. Thank you so much Jane!

Kayleigh    Braintree   

I had the absolute most amazing experience with Jane. I bought my dream wedding dress and couldn’t of done it without Janes expertise and making me and my family feel so welcome and valued. Would definitely recommend coming here. 10/10 experience x

Maddie Hulbert    Witham   

I cannot recommend Jane at Barn Bridal enough! We were made to feel really welcome as soon as we walked in and could instantly tell that Jane knew her stuff! We talked through the style of dress I was looking for, having sent a list when making the appointment, then went through all the dresses on the rails with Jane giving her advice along the way. Every dress was absolutely beautiful. I just had a good feeling that I was going to find THE one…and I did!
I’m so pleased with it and cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day! I will be highly recommending Barn Bridal to anyone and everyone, the whole experience was just perfect! Thank you Jane!

Today I said yes to the dress! After a very devastating event happening within the family Jane made my wedding dress experience unforgettable. From the moment I walked in she made it all about me and what I wanted. The dresses within her shop are absolutely beautiful and provided such an amazing range. I felt Jane took the time to find my perfect wedding dress with no pressure to hurry.

I would 100% recommend Barn Bridal Boutique to all my friends and family. Thank you for such a lovely, unforgettable experience Jane x

What an incredible experience! I am still beaming from my appointment with Jane. I felt so relaxed in her company and found the perfect dress for me and a veil! Jane took the time to get to know me and my unique style! She really listened to my ideas but she knew best and chose the most beautiful dress that I probably would never of chosen myself. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend Jane and her adorable boutique x x

I visited Jane today and this was my first appointment to try dresses on for my wedding next year. She made me feel so welcome & ready to try on any dress. My mum , sister & I loved the full flowy conversation that was being held throughout the whole experience. I didn't know what to expect and I certainly didn't think I would find 'the one’' but I did!! The Barn is very cute & homey just round the corner from my mums in Braintree. I’m so happy that I found jane that It made me feel like I have something from back home now that I don’t live in Essex anymore. The dresses are so reasonable, I can’t wait to wear my wonderful dress June 2020 Thank you Jane xxx
