Ellie Sanderson Oxford Review    
I had a lovely experience at the Ellie Sanderson Oxford shop, and found my perfect dress. The girls were really knowledgeable about what would suit me, the dress I ended up buying was picked out by one of the assistants as it wasn't something I would have normally gone for. They were really patient with me making sure it was the right dress- I was able to wear it around the shop for about 20 minutes as I didn't want to take it off!

Great service and selection    
I bought my wedding dress for February 2016 from Ellie Sanderson in August 2015.
I went in with a bridesmaid and a family friend and was greeted with bubbly.
They were all very attentive but at the same time gave us time to look through the dresses by ourselves before settling on a couple of ideas.
I had been to one other dress shop that day so I was closer to an idea of what I was after.
I had originally gone into the shop with 'under no circumstances will I have a strapless dress' being repeated by me. However, after discussing with the girls in the shop, I agreed to try on a strapless dress. It fitted very well and we all had a 'oooh' moment. One of the girls suggested putting a lace bolero with it and that completely sold it to us. My bridesmaid, family friend and I were in tears!
I really appreciated the advice the girls gave. They are clearly very knowledgeable about what suits each bride. I loved the fact that going in each time for my fittings, they remembered all the details I had told them about my wedding and honeymoon plans.
The dress fitted perfectly on the day and at no point during it did I feel uncomfortable. It was also lovely to have the option of being able to take the bolero off for the 'evening party' look!
Thanks so much to all of the girls at Ellie Sanderson.

Highly recommended    
I visited the Ellie Sanderson store in Oxford for a designer event they were having, though actually ended up with something completely different - the most amazing Claire Pettibone dress. Ellie and Andrea helped me in the process of selecting the dress and not only have the patience of saints but also offer really honest and great advice on what looks good especially as being a little older and it being my second time around I did not want a really traditional wedding dress. The service they offer is really personal and outstanding and they made me feel very special every time I went in for my fittings.

I felt so amazing on my wedding day – there was a gasp when I walked in the room and all day I had so many comments on my dress - a dress I would never have found had it not been for Andrea in particular.

Of all the planning elements in the run up to my wedding it was my trips to Ellie Sanderson that I enjoyed the most – they made it an absolute pleasure from start to finish.

There are only two downsides – firstly I will not get to wear the dress again and secondly I secondly I am already missing n!!

I would thoroughly recommend being an Ellie Sanderson bride!!

Gems xx    
The first time I went to Ellie Sanderson the staff, Andrea and Allison were very welcoming and made me feel like how a bride should. Allison chose a dress for me I never thought I would go for and now it's my wedding dress. They were so friendly they didn't have any issue with me coming back to show my sister. I then went to the wedding show to see my dress again and Lauren helped who was also friendly and down to earth. I then met the beautiful lady herself Ellie and she is really a gem, came and introduced herself and congratulated me. You can tell she loves why she does and makes sure her girls do to. Definitely would recommend them and can't wait for the journey for my wedding dress. Thank you Ellie and the girls

Happy, but then disappointed later    
I loved my Sassi Holford dress when I tried the sample. I was measured up, had my size chosen for me, and was assured that it would be perfect when it arrived in my size (4 sizes smaller than the sample size). Unfortunately the fit was not at all right when my dress arrived in the shop. The sleeves cut into me and the bust was too high under my arms. The seamstress didn't fix the sleeves, although I paid a lot of money for it to be fixed! Also, I was pressured into getting bust cups, which make me look way too big in the boobs. I'm taking it to another tailor, and hopefully they can fix it. Feeling quite sad, and out of pocket :( The staff are really lovely so I'm not sure what went wrong :(

Beautiful Boutique    
Ellie, Jenna and all the ladies ensured I had the most wonderful experience finding my dress. From the bubbles on arrival to the tissues provided when we found 'the one'; they were knowledgeable, professional and a credit to the designers they stock. I was eventually quite particular with the style of dress I wanted and they went out of their way to ensure this could be a possibility. Nothing was too much trouble and with their advice and guidance we made numerous changes to my dress, so much so that we joked it should be called 'The Charley'. I cannot recommend them highly enough for any bride to be and on behalf of my Mum and I, a heartfelt thank you for helping me find the dress of my dreams- I can't wait to wear it!
Charley Power - 13/07/2015
Wonderful experience     
I had a private appointment with Allison and couldn't have asked for better customer care. She was wonderful to deal with and so patient with me.
The dress I decided on is stunning and I was so pleased to have a further appointment with my mum so she could see it.
Dress now on order and I feel completely looked after and at ease.
Thank you - can't recommend enough.
Elizabeth Marsh - 30/06/2015
Excellent service and experience    
I couldn't be more happy with my experience at Ellie Sanderson and with the dress I finally bought this week. My first appointment was a late, private one with my mum and bridesmaids where we tried on a variety of different dresses, and it really was a lovely experience and a memory that I'll treasure. Beforehand, I was worried about being too big, too awkward and too unsure about what I wanted, but all of the lovely staff at both appointments were incredibly reassuring, helpful and diplomatic. Ultimately I felt completely confident in making my decision, supported in my budget and my preferences, and I've met several other brides this year who've all had the same great experience at the boutique.

Fantastic service and boutique    
I went to Ellie Sanderson to try and find my perfect dress and find it I did!
The service from start to finish on both my appointments was fantastic. I was treated as an individual and my thoughts and ideas were carefully listened to as well as them bringing some new ideas to the table.
I saw Allison and Andrea and both were extremely attentive to me and my family throughout. Nothing was too little and then went above and beyond to make sure my appointments were both extremely enjoyable and successful. I would recommend any bride to go to Ellie Sanderson Oxford for to try and find their dream dress. An absolute pleasure from start to finish. Thank you ladies xxx
Olivia King - 03/03/2015
Lovely experience    
As a shy and self-conscious person who knows *very* little about fashion or weddings, the idea of shopping for a wedding dress terrified me! The ladies at Ellie Sanderson put me at ease and guided me through their stunning selection of wedding dresses. Amazingly, I found my perfect dress! A dress that matches my personality, taste and body shape absolutely perfectly. I can't wait for it to be ready! Also, the website is extremely good and lists many of the styles available in the shop, so you can do your research before arriving.
Hannah - 16/02/2015
Made me feel special!    
What a shop and what service! It was such an amazing experience, every girls dream but they made it even better. All smiling, all dressed smartly, very polite. It's weird, I also felt like they were genuinely excited for me even though they had just met me. I would recommend them over and over again.
They listened to exactly what I THOUGHT I wanted and then showed me things I wouldn't have picked - I ended up going with the latter - they really know already what will suit you before you even choose but are also very particular to what you have asked. I also ended up ordering something bespoke with the help of Ellie so thank you so much.
Lisa Coker - 02/02/2015
Amazing dress shop you MUST go to    
You must go to this wedding dress shop, they have the most beautiful dresses and the most incredible service. The team will go to any length to make you feel special and ensure you get the dress of your dreams. Ellie is so incredibly talented and based on my description of what i wanted she picked out my perfect dress (she also did this for both my sisters!!!!).
Alexia - 14/11/2014
The last bridal shop you need to visit    
These positive and gushing reviews are all absolutely true and deserved. Couldn't fault anything about the experience from beginning to end. Was almost starting to wonder if the right dress was out there but with Ellie's help and a little customisation it is! She understood me and exactly what I wanted - they are clearly a very experienced team and nothing is too much trouble.

Thanks so much for everything - cannot recommend this shop and experience wholeheartedly enough.
Nicola - 02/11/2014
Creme Dela Creme!    
I had the best experience, I found my dream dress and the girls in the shop were beyond amazing and made me feel like a princess. So professional and I felt like I was their first ever customer and they went above and beyond to make it special. Every Bride should visit Ellie Sanderson! Thank you so much! Alice xx

Best at wedding show    
I was so fortunate to find Ellie Sandereson at the wedding show at Earls Court, London last week. The choice of dresses was great and the team there were lovely (I was lucky enough to have seen Eira and Ellie who were amazing) they stood out among all the wedding dress stands at the show. I was lucky enough to find the most amazing dress and I can't wait to go to see them again for a fitting and for accessories. I also saw the perfect bridesmaid dress with them as well, Can't recommend them highly enough a really professional operation they definitely stand out for all the right reasons even if you don't live near the boutique which i don't they are worth a very long drive! Thank you I feel very relaxed now that i am in safe hands for the most important dress of my life!
Louise Farr-Davies - 30/09/2014
Best dress shop    
I tried on a lot of dresses at many boutiques in both New York and the UK and I can honestly say that Ellie Sanderson has the warmest and most helpful staff and the best selection of dresses. Everytime I visited for fittings they were so friendly and accomodating. Andrea helped me find my perfect dress. I had tried a few dresses on and there were small things that just werent quite what I had pictured. Andrea immediately knew what I wanted and went to the stock room to find a brand new dress that had just come in from Suzanna Neville. It was perfect and I felt amazing in it on the big day and so comfortable. Their seamstress is so skilled and made the dress fit like a glove. If I had to do it all again I would have just gone straight to Ellie Sanderson and skipped the other shops!
Kathryn mcDonnell - 26/09/2014
Just perfect!    
I visited Ellie Sanderson on the recommendation of a friend. The shop was beautiful, with a stunning selection of dresses. Ellie, Helen and all of the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. It was a lovely, relaxed experience, which I was privileged to share with my Mum and mother-in-law to be. I found "the one" and would highly recommend Ellie Sanderson to all brides-to-be.
Victoria - 15/09/2014
Amazing boutique    
I have just purchased my dream wedding dress from Ellie Sanderson, and I don't think I could have done it without Georgina! Georgina knew exactly what I wanted before even I knew, the advice and help was beyond my expectations and the staff are all so friendly and welcoming. Would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for their perfect dress. Thank you so much again. I can't wait to come back and try it on! Off to celebrate with some champagne xx
Lauren Sheppard - 10/05/2014
Wedding dress:)

They really made me feel as if I had known them for years:) The service they gave me and my mum was excellent, deffinatley would recommend them to anyone:) Thank you again Ellie Sanderson xxx
Lauren smith - 22/04/2014
I visited Ellie Sanderson on the recomendation of a friend, The shop is fantastic and the staff are very welcoming.I had no idea of the kind of dress i wanted, Georgina was fantastic, she made feel at ease and was so helpfull. She recomended some beautiful dresses and nothing was too much trouble, needless to say I found my perfect dress. Thank you Georgina.
Angie - 13/04/2014
Very very pleased with my purchase    
Just got back from a 4 hour round trip to the Ellie Sanderson Boutique and it was worth the drive. Fabulous dresses and very nice staff who dress you for your size and shape rather than talking you into buying something just because they want to make a sale. I choose a gorgeous Suzanne Neville dress which was a slighty different style to what I had in mind but was even more gorgeous than I imagined. I'm getting married in 4 months so I've left it very late but I will still have my dress in time. I would highly recommend a visit as all of the dresses are fabulous and I could have bought them all.
Kellie Allen - 02/04/2014
A wonderful experience & over the moon with my dress!     
From the moment I walked into Ellie Sanderson I was looked after so well by Katy and Andrea, I cannot recommend this shop highly enough. I have always swooned over the Jenny Packham dresses and was unsure as to whether they would suit my figure being size 16+, when I called beforehand to see if I would be able to try any on Andrea put me totally at ease and when I had my appointment they pinned and tacked me in to get the best idea of what the dress would look like on me. I surprised myself by crying constantly from the second I tried on my wedding dress. I was brought as many to try on as I needed to and had to most wonderful time adding fur stoles and tiara’s – it was nothing like some of the awkward and uncomfortable experiences I have accompanied other brides dress shopping to other shops. Being so fussy I thought I would have to visit months worth of shops and I am truly grateful to have gone to Elle Sanderson in Oxford on my first outing. The shop is beautiful and the dresses are immaculate – the changing rooms are huge and there is a little dressing up boudoir out the back if you feel uncomfortable showing off dresses on the shop floor. I am over the moon with my dress and cannot wait for the fittings!
Bridget - 24/03/2014
Truly fabulous experience    
I had heard wonderful things about Ellie Sanderson in Oxford from several brides, and they certainly were not exaggerating. The shop is beautiful, spacious and light with plenty of room to swoosh around in the stunning gowns. I cannot praise Georgina enough. Her knowledge of the designers, gowns, and accessories was so impressive. Everything went seamlessly during my appointment, and she made it such a pleasure finding 'the dress'. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and the glass of bubbly made the experience extra special. I would highly recommend Ellie Sanderson as a treasure trove of beautiful dresses, with excellent staff and a wonderful atmosphere.
Ruth Harris - 07/02/2014
Highly recommended    
An absolutely wonderful experience. I had no idea what to expect as it was my first time trying on any dresses. I had a few ideas in mind as to what I wanted but Georgina with her expert eye found me the one. It's a gorgeous dress and totally prefect and I can't wait to wear it.
The team is lovely and incredibly helpful. Would highly recommend going to Ellie Sanderson.

Extra mile and then some...    
I had the most fantastic experience at Ellie Sanderson in Oxford recently and finally found "the One".

I'd been to quite a few dress shops before going to Ellie's and I was starting to fear that I wouldn't find anything I liked and was a very fussy bride. However on meeting Ellie and her team they couldn't do enough to help me find the perfect dress. They went above and beyond their duties to really help me and to make sure that I was happy with my final choice. I really can't recommend them highly enough and have not hesitated in directing my newly engaged friends towards them.

The whole experience was wonderful and I can't wait to get back there for the fittings.

Many thanks once again to Ellie and her girls for being absolute stars xx
Rhiannon Saunders - 08/11/2013
Wonderful experience    
If you are a bride to be looking for a positive experience whilst trying dresses on, Ellie Sanderson is the place to go. The staff are lovely, experienced, and very helpful, and they have beautiful dresses there!
Jennie - 02/06/2013
Thank you    
I had a very short time frame to find my dress as I live abroad. I had chosen to visit Ellie Sanderson specifically as I knew they stocked a few designers that I was interested in. My mum and I were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and Acacia helped me find 'the dress' without any stress. The team then went out of their way to accommodate me and my super fast turn around.

I can't recommend the ladies here highly enough, from the moment I entered the shop to the minute I left having chosen my beautiful dress I had the best experience. Thank you x
Lianne Dawes - 10/03/2013
Thank you!    
I went to Ellie Sanderson last weekend with my bridesmaids, having tried on a couple of dresses in other places. Georgina was superb: she listened really carefully to what I wanted and was very patient while I ummmed and ahhhed between the final two contenders. Really pleased with my choice and I know that I have found the right dress for me. I'd definitely recommend Elie Sanderson for other brides.
Sarah - 05/03/2013
What a lovely experience!    
Thank you so much to all the girls at Ellie Sanderson for helping me find my dream dress! After various visits with lots of "helpful" friends and family, I decided to take the plunge and go visit Ellie on my own after walking past the shop front a few times! Becci was wonderful, very patient and thoughtful, and has helped me to find the perfect dress. Although I thought I knew what I wanted, I've found something completely opposite and I love it! Thank you!
Sarah - 27/02/2013
I had lost hope of finding the dress! I had visited 5 shops before my appointment at Ellie Sanderson in Oxford; they have such a unique range of dresses all of them different to the run of the mill dresses that seem to be in all the other shops I tried. I’m also pleased to add that Andrea picked out a dress I hadn’t looked at initially & it was perfect! The staff & Andrea in particular made me feel very welcome, they were lovely couldn’t do enough for us. Thanks for a great experience!
Louise - 19/02/2013
I went in to Ellie Sanderson yesterday with my maid of honour on the hunt for a dress for my wedding on the 8th June. With only four months to find a dress I knew that I would be limited in choice but the ladies at Ellie Sanderson went out of the way to find the dress that I wanted within the time frame.

We ended up with both my wedding dress and my maid of honour's dress from Two Birds.

They were so helpful & friendly and I can't recommend them enough.
Lucy C - 09/02/2013
I would strongly recommend Ellie Sanderson Oxford if you are looking for a dress. My family live in the north and my Mum decided to come down with little notice. After speaking to several shops with no luck of an appointment, a friend recommended Ellie. They were brilliant and squeezed me in on a very busy Saturday. Acacia was an Angel nothing was to much trouble, she very quickly picked up what i was looking for, after 2 visits and Acacia's incredible patients I found the dress of my Dreams. In-fact all girls were lovely and mad me feel very, very special.

Thank-you !!!

I am so looking forward to my fittings.
Tracy Carroll - 25/01/2013
Having been a bridesmaid recently and been to numerous bridal dress stores, it suddenly became my turn to be the bride trying on the dresses. Ellie Sanderson was the first store I went in to as I had my eye on a particular dress, which they had in stock. I was greeted with a very friendly and warm welcome and a glass of bubbly! Unfortunately, the dress of my dreams was not 'the one' but the staff could instantly tell the type of dress I wanted and were patient as I tried on numerous dresses in their collection. Having put on weight recently due to medication and feeling uncomfortable in myself, they took the time and effort to ensure that I found the dress that was right for me, down to the last detail by trying different combinations of accessories to ensure that I found my dream dress. I chose a Jenny Packham dress, for which they had a 10% off date in a few weeks, which I was unable to attend. They offered me the same discount whilst I was in the store and took my measurements so that my Mum could attend the 10% off day, should I need a little time to think. I have had e-mails from the staff since, all of which have been informal and very friendly.
I have been made to feel like I am the only bride that they are looking after, as their care has been so personal and friendly. I couldn't imagine buying my dress from anywhere else and they have certainly outdone every bridal store that I have been to before. Ellie Sanderson is a must for every blushing bride to be. You won't be disappointed with the care and attention that they take.
Jackie - 16/01/2013
Ellie Sanderson    
Ellie Sanderson were absolutely fantastic to work with. I went into other bridal shops where they simply went through their catalogue and told me to pick things I liked for them to bring through, Ellie Sanderson actually talked through the style of my wedding and offered guidance and advice immediately. Even for the most enthusiastic bride, wedding dress shopping is very daunting and other shops where you're just left to find things you like (and virtually all wedding dresses look a little strange on hangers!), Ellie Sanderson set out to help find you something that made you feel great and suited your whole wedding, not just a dress that worked on you. Thoroughly recommended. I went back three times to try on the same dress and there was never any pressure, and they seemed genuinely pleased when I reached my decision. Looking forward to fittings!
Rebecca - 05/12/2012
What a fantastic experience! I was really worried about finding a wedding dress to make me look as beautiful as everyone expects on your wedding day. I also had quite firm ideas in mind as I wanted to be able to eat and drink on my wedding day and therefore didn't want a corset. Acacia (who helped us during our fitting) was fantastic - she listened to everything I said and picked out exactly the kind of dresses I wanted. We finally found a dress we liked but wanted altered to fit me, and again everyone in the shop was hugely helpful - making suggestions about would or wouldn't be possible. They even contacted the people who do the alterations to ask them if they could change the buttons on a pair of shoes to make them fit me!
A really enjoyable experience and a fantastic service. I would highly recommend this shop.
sarah - 29/11/2012
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant    
From the moment I met Ellie and her girls at the bridal show, I knew that I was going to use them. Professional and knew exactly what dress suited me before I even tried it on. I loved my time at the fittings as Ellie and the girls were lovely to be with and made it a fun process. Ellie is a lovely kind caring lady and the girls she has working for her are 5***. If your local or even if your not and your looking for the perfect wedding dress, then Ellie Sanderson is it. Thanks ladies, my dress was beautiful.
Rebecca O'Neill - 29/08/2012
Thank you!    
Thank you for the care and attention you gave me! You helped me select the perfect gown and made me feel truly special! You capture the bridal spirit perfectly and deliver an experience which is what bridal dress shopping should be!
Sian - 29/08/2012
Perfect in every way!    
I cannot fault Ellie sanderson Oxford in any way.
I was on such a time limit to get a dress for the big day and I could not have done it without them.
All of the girls are amazing and so good at their jobs. The dress that I wore on my wedding day was the first dress that they chose for me... they know what they are doing. I tried on several others, but they knew. They were all so friendly and made the experience so enjoyable and even in my VERY limited time frame I did not at any point get stressed. They all knew exactly what they were doing from the time my dress was chosen to the fitters doing the measurements and incredible work. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you girls!
Tiffany - 26/07/2012
Wonderful experience from a brilliant team    
From the moment I walked into the boutique I knew I was going to be well looked after by Ellie and her friendly and professional team. They have a genuine passion for helping brides to find their perfect dress and are delighted to support you every step of the way. Each time I visited the boutique I had fun and appreciated all their advice. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and they were good at keeping in touch and letting me know how things were going. All the fittings were exceptionally well organised and absolutely nothing was left to chance. With so much think about and organise with weddings, the dress was the one thing that I never once worried about, and that's all down to Ellie and the girls. Thank you
Georgina - 16/07/2012
When I went looking for dresses, I had a very clear idea of what I wanted... That didn't last long at all, though, and I am so glad!

Nicola and Georgina had such a fantastic eye for styling from the start and every one of Ellie's staff had the same professionalism - helping me out with accessories and enthusing over every touch.

I only wish I could get find excuses to shop there more often... I will certainly try!
Nomtha - 06/07/2012
Totally recommended!    
This was the first bridal boutique I visited and I chose my perfect wedding dress within 1 1/2 hrs. I would totally recommend visiting! They had a huge selection of beautiful dresses to chose from and were extremely helpful - encouraging me to try on many different designs to ensure I selected the perfect one. The one-to-one attention made the process seamless and very personal. Loved the whole experience!
Linda - 12/06/2012
Outstanding Bridal Boutique    
I can't recommend Ellie Sanderson in Oxford enough. The girls are professional, but warm and delightful. I wanted a girly bridal experience, but didn't want someone being fake and fawning over me. Julia was completely perfect she was fun and funny and had impeccable taste. My dress was the second one I tried on! They have an excellent selection of designer dresses and gorgeous accessories. It was a one stop shop for me- dress, jacket, shoes, veil- done! The shop itself can only be described as girl heaven and I think I may have to make regular visits now that my wedding is over because going in there is such a happy experience. Ellie, Nicola and the Girls make a tremendous team- thank you all so much! xx
Kate - 15/11/2011
Ellie Sanderson - SUPER - Bridal Boutique    
Stop! Look no further than Ellie Sanderson bridal boutique!

The dresses, veils and accessories are all stunningly and beautiful, and you will definitely be able to find the perfect dress for you. The real jewels in the crown of this amazing boutique though are Ellie and the girls! They are absolute stars, without whom, my bridal experience would not have been complete.

From finding the dress for me (who else could cope with a bride who thought she fancied dresses as different as a fish tail through to a full princess skirt?!), to selecting a veil, taking measurements and fittings... this team is simply THE BEST.

They even worry on your behalf (you will learn that this is worth its weight in gold!).

Visit this store!

Thank you so much girls, you made my dress experience!

Jennifer Williamson - 15/11/2011
Amazing, just amazing!
I'd been to a few dress places before Ellie Sanderson. I came in with NO idea what I wanted, just a few ideas on what I didn't want. I relayed these to Nicola who immediately assured me that she had the dress for me. She was right!
I hadn't believed the talk of finding THE dress until I came here. Nicola, Ellie and the girls made the experience a real pleasure, I loved everything about the experience, including my beautiful dress.
Jen Emeny-Green - 23/08/2011
highly recommeded    
I had previously been to a few other bridal shops and thought I would never find a dress, shop assistants were never very helpful and always felt rushed so I was not really looking forward to my appointment but Ellie saunderson is the perfect bridal shop, girls were so helpful and lovely, they spend time with you when you get there to find out all about the kind of dress you are looking for and give you lots of advice, they have lots of gorgeous choices for all tastes and cater for all budgets, over all a fab experience and found the perfect dress.

Ellie Sanderson Oxford    
I had a lovely trip to Ellie Sanderson with my bridesmaids - we were all made to feel very welcome and were instantly impressed with the shop. Nicola was so helpful and managed to find me the perfect dress, one I would never have tried on if she hadn't suggested it. I can't wait to wear it next year!
Louise - 19/10/2010
great service     
I just bought my Suzanne Neville dress from this shop and the service that I got was brilliant. I have been in three times and never once felt rushed into making my choice, Nicola actually said I needed to think it over but I knew it was my dress, I did go away and then come back with my friend then we came back a week later with my mum and bought my dress.
I am short with a big bust and Nicola was the only assistant that could help explain how I needed a made to measure dress to get the shape right.
many thanks and I cant wait to come back for my fittings in February.
susan Lain - 23/09/2010
Wonderful Experience    
I visited the Ellie Sanderson Boutique in Oxford with my mum a few weeks ago and was blown away by the beautiful dresses and fabulous accessories the shop has to offer. There are many amazing dresses to suit different shapes, personalities and styles. The service we received was just wonderful, I couldn’t have asked for more. I didn't have much of an idea about what I was looking for so didn’t expect to buy a dress from the first shop we would visit, never mind the 2nd dress I tried on! However, thanks to Nicola I now have ‘the’ wedding dress of my dreams being made to fit me perfectly (made to measure service). Nicola is so nice and professional, I felt totally at ease with her and it is obvious she loves her job and is passionate about brides looking their best and choosing ‘the’ dress. My mum and I had such a wonderful experience with no stress at all, just a lovely, fun, girly time as special as it should be. Nicola makes you feel like a million dollars, I have 100% faith in her and my gorgeous Sassi Holford dress.
Jenna James - 03/08/2010
An amazing experience    
I was reading through a Bridal Magazine when i saw my: "perfect dress".
I live in Gloucestershire and after some searching i found a delightful shop in Oxford that stocked it.
I emailed the shop and got a warm response from Nicola who was able to answer all of my questions and worries.
We (my Matron of Honour and I) arranged to visit Ellie Sanderson on 14th July 2010. It was the most amazing day out. The shop was beautiful. It was calm, tranquil and very welcoming.
The dresses were quite simply "out of this world."
There were so many to choose from.
Nicola made me feel completely at ease. I was nervous having never tried a wedding dress on before, but she made me feel special and i became absorbed in the whole atmosphere.
I did have my special dress in mind and when i tried it on it lived up to all of my expectations.
I knew it was, "The One"
I did try on other dresses and i had great fun doing it.
They were all unique and catered for all styles of Weddings. I felt elegant and glamourous in all of them but Melita by Alan Hannah won my heart.
Thank you Nicola, Ellie Sanderson and Alan Hannah for making all of this possible.
I know we will be in close contact over the next few months making arrangements, further viewings, fittings and i look forward to every minute of it.
I highly recomment Ellie Sanderson in Oxford for any Bride to be!

Amazing Experience!    
To anyone reading this looking for somewhere to purchase their wedding dress PLEASE visit Ellie Sanderson in Oxford, you will not be disappointed. This bridal boutique is fabulous! Nicola is an absolute star - The service you receive is second to none and the dresses are simply stunning! The accessories are amazing, the boutique is in a wonderful location and I couldn't imagine having a better experience anywhere else. As soon as you walk through the doors you feel so special and I'm not particularly a fairytale wedding kind of girl but that is exactly how you feel, it's fantastic! I have visited Ellie Sanderson Oxford on 3 occasions now and have ordered my dress - I kind of wish I hadn't so that I had an excuse to keep going back!!!

Excellent service, shop and dresses!    
I recently bought my wedding dress from the new Ellie Sanderson Boutique in Oxford and I was extremely impressed with the service provided. I was seen by Nicola who was warm, helpful and lovely and made me feel happy and at ease throughout the whole process. The dresses in this shop are beautiful; there is an excellent choice of very good designers, as well as a great range of different styles to try. The shop has a lovely atmosphere. I only wish you were allowed to have more than one wedding - I would come back to this shop every time!

Ellie Sanderson has it all. Beautiful shop, excellent staff and amazing dresses. I cannot express the fantastic experience I have had whilst shopping for my wedding dress.
I was impressed with the service provided and how special the staff made me feel.
The dresses in this shop are wonderful and there is an extensive choice. I even got to meet Sassi Holfold.
Special thanks to Nicola and Ellie who assisted me all through the process and provided me with some fantastic suggestions.

So accommodating!    
I would thoroughly recommend the dress buying experience at Ellie Sanderson. Such a beautiful selection of dresses which Nicola and Jenna know exactly how to fit. When I had a panic about my order, they were so accommodating and made me feel completely at my ease.
If you want the personal touch with people who really understand what it means to choose a wedding dress, all wrapped in an elegant experience, then this is the boutique to go to.

I had an absolutely amazing experience at Ellie Sanderson. I am from the US and was visiting my cousin who is living in Oxford. I just happened by the shop and saw this beautiful gown in the window. I was able to make an appointment to try dresses on. The dress I saw in the window was the one I eventually purchased. All of the staff at the shop were amazing. They were so helpful and patient with me. I was glad to be able to leave and come back with my cousin to get her opinion. I never expected to find a wedding gown while on my trip, but I am glad to have found it at Ellie Sanderson. I will always remember my experience!

Beautiful new Boutique    
It's difficult to find a bridal shop that makes you feel really special AND isn't pretentious. Ellie Sanderson Bridal made me feel unique from the moment I stepped through the door and all the girls were completely down to earth. They were flexible and open to options, letting me explore and helping me to throw around ideas. I was lucky enough to be in the boutique the same day that Sassi Holford was visiting and promoting her new range. Sassi, Ellie and the girls gave me plenty of attention and time, designing some bespoke features on my chosen dress. A truly unique bridal experience! Since buying my dress, the service continues to be excellent with regular communication and invitations to accessory parties!

Just Fabulous!     
I visited the shop a couple of weeks after it opened to look at some wedding shoes, they were so helpful and the shop is just gorgeous - they even stocked the dress I'd ordered so I got to have another sneaky peak. Was a shame I'd already bought my dress elsewhere! Exactly what you want from a bridal boutique, friendly staff and gorgeous gowns.

A lovely experience    
I have found shopping at Ellie Sanderson a lovely experience. I had already bought my dress when they opened in Oxford but still needed some accessories and was delighted to see a bridal shop open in central Oxford.
I bought a beautiful pair of shoes and a lovely veil that I had seen in the window. I got very friendly personal service and some useful advice on what accessories would go with my dress, as well as a 10% discount as the shop was new.
The shop is beautiful and a pleasure to spend time in, and I would recommend it to all Oxford brides-to-be.

Designer Bridal shop    
I bought my dress from this shop early this year, I had tried on over 60 dresses and wanted to cry. I walked in and Ellie just listened whilst I explained the mess I felt in. She very decided that the best thing was to start again. I had explained all this on the phone and Ruth her Manager decided to book me in for two hours. Ellie put me in a big gown, a slinky gown, lace, netting skirts and so on. I tried straps, no straps and finally she pulled out a gown and said THIS you have to try because I think it will be wonderful. before she zipped it up I cried, I just knew, she was so right. From then on I trusted her and the all the girls that work there to choose my accessories, veil and shoes. I cannot say how great the girls here are and they all love what they do and make it fun. I couldnt be more pleased that I found them.
YOU MUST GO HERE, if you dont you will miss out.
Oh they also have monthly private parties which are just amazing - get an invite if you can .
