Excellent experience all around

Tegan and Roberta were extremely welcoming and made us feel at ease. They were very helpful in selecting dresses and were able to explain how each dress could potentially be customised or modified if it was missing a particular feature (e.g. sleeves).
We primarily worked with Tegan and she was great at reading the room and giving us exactly the amount of assistance that we needed. The experience felt very warm and personal. Effort was made to make the process as comfortable as possible and the discussion around sizing was handled very sensitively. The dressing room was a really pleasant space and felt very private.
The selection of dresses was great and felt quite unique, featuring several designers with only a handful of UK stockists. Of the 11 or 12 dresses I tried across various shops, my 3 favourite dresses were all from Silk & Maple.
I would recommend Silk & Maple to anyone looking for a wedding dress!

Best Bridal Shop EVER

I’m not over-exaggerating when I say this is the best bridal shop ever. The shop is beautiful, there’s a massive selection of dresses (without being overwhelming), and the girls are AMAZING. As a pretty insecure person, Tegan, Roberta, and Jess were all so, so helpful and supportive, and made me feel beautiful in the dresses. There was absolutely no pressure to make a decision on the spot, and they were there to support me every step of the way. I honestly could not recommend this bridal shop more if you want a luxury, classy experience.

Just Go - It's Worth It & More

I've been obsessed with Silk & Maple from the moment I got engaged. I have tried other lovely shops but never felt like I found 'The One'. I was looked after by Tegan, who instantly sat me down and asked me what I wanted, what I liked and how I wanted to feel. She let me loose on the shop but had a few dresses up her sleeve for me to try.



From start to finish, I felt as though I was with a friend - not someone who wanted me to pick something they felt best. I was instantly at ease, feeling like the whole day was all about me. Tegan really made me feel like she wanted me to find the perfect dress and thanks to her - I did!



I genuinely don't know how else to explain it. If you don't drive, it is worth the travel. It is worth going. It is worth having that experience. I came away with a dress that was exactly how I described and I felt so beautiful in it. I welled up. I did not want to take it off. Tegan was amazing, kind, fun, and informative. Everything you need. There was no pressure, just someone who wanted to help you find your dream dress. Amazing range, amazing people (got to say hi to Roberta towards the end!). Just go. There's a reason they've won awards and have nothing but 5* reviews. Thank you guys so much for everything. Honestly I had the best time ever x

Had the most lovely day!

I can’t thank the beautiful ladies that run this shop anymore. Myself, my grandmother and bridesmaids had the most lovely time when shopping for my dress. They really heard every little detail in my list of what I was looking for and made me feel like I was the only person in the shop for the time I was there! We definitely laughed, cried and I’m so grateful. I can’t wait to pick up my dress in August! X

A fabulous bridal experience!

Would highly recommend to any bride-to-be’s looking for their wedding dress! There is a beautiful selection and something to suit all tastes. Roberta & Tiegan are so lovely, professional & knowledgable, making you feel at ease.
I also got a little gift in the post prior to my appointment which is just a really lovely touch & made me feel so special. Attention to detail is impeccable

Silk and Maple will forever hold a special place in my heart! They provide excellent, personal service and always have a smile on their face. The wedding dress I said yes to, was one that Roberta and Tegan both suggested for me! They have heaps of experience and knowledge and I wouldn’t recommend anyone to go anywhere else for their special day🤍 lots of love ladies x

Silk & Maple is THE perfect Bridal shop.

Silk & Maple is THE perfect Bridal shop.
Although I was nervous, as soon as we arrived Roberta and Tegan made us feel so welcome and excited for the appointment. There are so many beautiful dresses and styles to choose from and Roberta really listened to what I liked and what I was looking for with each dress I tried on. I said yes to the dress which Roberta had hand selected for me, it is absolutly stunning and I felt so happy having found my dream dress, there were even tears!
I also returned for an accessorry appointment with Jess who shared so much knowledge and made me feel at ease helping me find the perfect veil to compliment my dress.
Silk & Maple made Wedding Dress shopping such a special and memorable experience for me and my mum that we will remember forever. We felt all of the team went above and beyond to create a personal appointment and I would recommend Silk & Maple to all brides to be ✨🤍

The best experience…

Fantastic experience at Silk & Maple - Roberta & Tegan were so lovely and put me at ease straight away. They showed a genuine interest in my day, even googling my venue so that they could get a feel for it. I wasn’t sure what I wanted but found it within six dresses - and it was one of their ‘wildcards’. Trust these ladies…they know what they’re doing! Thank you for the best afternoon and for finding my dream dress xx

The (second) easiest yes ever! 🫶

There are not enough words to explain how incredible Tegan & Roberta are. I’d been talking with them on and off for 3 months before actually going in for my appointment and they did absolutely everything to make me feel comfortable. They discussed what I liked ahead of time, and even brought some dresses in my size for the appointment!
The actual appointment was just magical and there really isn’t any other way to describe it. From start to finish I felt like a princess.
Me and all my guests had the best morning with Tegan and she really just felt like one of us! Saying yes to the dress and Silk & Maple has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
I’m so proud to be a Silk & Maple bride and I can’t wait to go back and pick up my dress for the big day! 🤍✨

Couldn't have wished for more

Silk & Maple was the perfect wedding dress shopping experience, I couldn't have wished for more. I really didn't know what to expect when looking for a dress but Roberta & Tegan put me at ease immediately and I looked forward to returning for each appointment. My friends & family that attended with me each time also loved visiting, and expressed how welcoming & enthusiastic Roberta & Tegan were. My friend from Birmingham even said she'd happily travel to Sudbury so that she can be a Silk & Maple bride too! Thank you so much, I can't wait to wear my dress on my big day!

The perfect dress experience 🥰

The friendliest, most uplifting experience, with a stunning collection of dresses 🤍 Tegan and Roberta are so good at what they do - I thought I'd feel self-conscious trying on dresses, but they made me feel like a bride. I can't recommend them highly enough.
