We have been running the business for three years and recently relocated our boutique. We’ve added even more collections to our ranges. We love to help our customers find that perfect outfit.

What a fantastic little gem of a shop, after going to another place and not feeling special at all my cousin recommended Once upon a time, after trying on a good range in my size options i found my dress and even my bridesmaid dress. Amy was fantastic and made me feel special from the minute i walked in the door and there was no pressure at all :). I will definitely be recommending you to future brides to be. Thank you so much now all i need is 2018 to hurry up so i can wear my fabulous dress and wow my future husband. Xxx
