I had a lot of trouble finding my perfect wedding dress. I visited a total of 6 shops and was getting rather fed up by the time I got to Fairytale Occasions! However, visiting Nikki was definitely the best decision I made!! Nikki managed to take my favourite dress and create my dream dress from it - no small feat I might add! From one long dress, Nikki created a short dress with a long skirt I could wear over the top, giving me a truly unique dress that I love. I can't recommend her enough! :)
I would just like to thank you for the fantastic job you made of my wedding dress. Your patience and professionalism resulted in the most wonderful dress, which drew many complements on my wedding day in Italy.
Nikki made my dream wedding dress. It was perfect and I felt a million dollars. I had come to Nikki with a very clear idea of what I wanted and she truly transferred my design into my perfect dress. Thank you so much Nikki. x X x
Nikki was helpful from the moment I visited her shop. The dress I found was different to any others I had tried on and Nikki was more than helpful in making the alterations. I felt every bit the beautiful bride on the day and many guests commented on how wonderful my dress was. Thank you for helping my day a special and memorable one.
Fairytale occasions was the first shop we went to and my daughter fell in love with her prom dress. The dress was stunning but needed alterating slightly. Nikki was amazing, worked really hard in a short space of time and got the work done. Nothing was to much trouble for Nikki.
Purchased my daughters wedding dress two years before the wedding and it needed altering before the big day, Nikki was recommended by a friend and her service was fantastic. Nikki was professional and the quality of work superb. We can't thank her enough.
Nikki your one amazing lady!! I found THE dress at fairytale occasions in Highworth on my second visit after traipsing around many other wedding dress shops. After the dress needed to be altered and taken up a couple of times, Nikki worked tirelessly whilst battling with throat infections and colds to make my dress the show stopper and what a shop stopper it was! Thankyou sooo much Nikki you made my dreams come true.

It was a wonderful night which has left me with some marvellous, lifelong memories."
I took my wedding dress into Nikki and asked if she could make it into a cushion cover, waistcoat & bow tie for my little boys christening and a mini version of the dress. She completely excelled herself! I couldn't be more happy with the results. She is an incredibly talented dressmaker and I would highly recommend. x
Well..... Where to start?!
Thank you just doesn't seem enough!!
In March 2014 my mum and I arranged a visit to your shop where I fell in love with the 1st dress I tried - the beautiful Sophia! You were patient & understanding whilst I took the dress off then wanted it on again to make sure it was 'The Dress'! You listened to what I was looking for & chose the perfect veil & tiara to compliment the dress! This made the big task of dress shopping easy, relaxed, exciting and memorable!
A few months before the wedding I got back in touch to arrange for my alterations to be done. The dress needed taking up, the strap adjusted & the zip change for a corset back. These were no problem for you, I trusted you 100% and knew it would be perfect! When the dress was finished it looked like it had been made to measure for me! I felt like a princess!
Then there was my bridesmaid dresses.....
I had 5 bridesmaids ranging from 9 to 29 years old, all different heights and body shapes. Because of this I had the idea that I would have 5 individual dresses made, all different styles to suit each bridesmaid but in the same material and colour. The biggest regret I have about the wedding is not having these made by you!!! I had these made by a local lady who repeatedly let me down with changing or missing appointments and was inaccurate with her measurements & fittings. 3 weeks before the wedding she dropped off the 5 dresses and did not complete the final fitting. When the girls tried them on that evening they were poorly fitted, badly finished and had pins sewn into the seams. I messaged you at 10.30pm whilst having a bride breakdown about the state of the dresses. You replied that you would be able to sort them, that they could be fixed and not to worry! From that point you became my fairy godmother in disguise! I knew that it was going to be ok and thanked my lucky stars I'd bought my dress from you! I had every confidence in that you knew exactly what you were doing and are highly experienced!
You then had the huge task of rescuing 5 bridesmaid dresses in 3 weeks during the height of the wedding season. This included numerous visits with each of my bridesmaids and you working until 3am on numerous occasions to get them sorted! After all this, you still found time to steam my dress and give my bridesmaids a lesson on how to do me up! For all of this, I am eternally grateful! You went way beyond the call of duty to help me have my perfect day - this is why the words 'thank you' doesn't seem enough!!
When I collected mine & the bridesmaids dresses 4 days before our day I was an emotional reck! A mixture of huge relief, gratitude and excitement overwhelmed me! Plus I was a little bit sad that was the end of my wedding preparation journey as I'd met so many lovely people like yourself a long the way!
Thank you a million times over!
My dress went down very well at my wedding yesterday. Lots of wonderful comments. Thank you for all your hard work and help! Xx
Thank you so much for taking all the time you did to ensure my dress was perfect. I got so many wonderful comments on the day and I have never felt so pretty. I will recommend you to anybody looking for a wedding or occasion dress. Thank you.
Thank you so much for all you did for me on my dress...its so beautiful and I felt like a princess....had the best day! Xx
Just got back from our fairytale Bled wedding and mini-moon in Slovenia so wanted to say thank you for all your help with my dress and making my dress even more beautiful than it was anyway, everyone admired it and received so many positive comments. Thank you and sending some photos of the dress and our beautiful day in magical Bled!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did from the first time I saw my dress until I wore it on the day. The dress was perfect and everybody commented on what a wonderful dress it was and how perfectly it fitted so thank you very much as it was down to you!
You made my wedding day perfect so thank you again.
Thank you Nikki, you worked tirelessly from start to finish in making my bridesmaid dresses come to life, the colours were amazing! Even when faced with a last minute alteration and I mean last minute, you were calm and professional and I never had a doubt that you would make it happen! I love my Coral dress it was like a big hug wrapping itself around me. It made me feel warm inside and most importantly beautiful! The embroidery of my late father's initials you did on it was perfect and really helped me express everything I felt on the day! You made my day extra special and I can't thank you enough for all your hard work! You truly are a very talented lady.
Nikki was an absolute gem with helping my daughter Chiara to design and make her prom dress in such a short time. So helpful, always willing to please us and didn't mind changing at our request details on the dress. A truly great experience of having a bespoke dress made and highly recommended Nikki and fairytale occasions to all!!!
Thank you so much for my gorgeous dress. I felt like such a princess on the day, so many people commented on how pretty it was. Highly recommend Fairytale Occasions. Nikki has all the time in the world for her brides. xxx
My dress was perfect, everyone commented on how amazing it was with all the buttons on the back and the detail on the dress. I loved my dress. Thank you so much for everything, you are truly an amazing lady with everything you did with my dress. My feedback is that your boutique shop is a perfect place for a bride to feel special. My mum I loved our trips to your shop and were sad when we realised we wouldn't be making them anymore. There is nothing I would change! It was truly a perfect experience. I especially loved the appointments where it was just us and I was able to spend time with you discussing ideas about the dress. Thank you again for such a personal experience. My thanks are also to Chloe, without you both I wouldn't have made it to our day.
Thank you so much for my beautiful dress. It was just perfect and so many people commented on how gorgeous it was. I would definitely recommend Fairytale Occasions :)
Perfect day not only did I find my perfect dress in Fairytale Occasions, I had my dream dress on the day Thanks to Nikki's skills at altering it to reflect EXACTLY what I wanted. It's a one in a million and my new Husband was blown away at how perfect it was!! Xx
From start to finish Fairytale Occasions have been great. They give superb customer service and at each appointment I was always made to feel so welcome. The range of dresses in the shop really does provide something for all tastes and the range of accessories were also excellent, especially the shoes. I received so many lovely comments about the dress on the day and one friend has already got her eyes on the sparkly shoes! Thank you, you really made what is a major part of the wedding process simple for me.
I just wanted to email and say thank you again for my beautiful bolero and all your help with my day. It was spectacular. No rain and was the best day ever. Thank you so much to you both.
I bought my wedding dress from here and I absolutely loved it! Nikki was lovely and done a really good job on my alterations. Everybody said it was beautiful and really different. Thank you. Xx
Just to say a BIG THANK YOU for what you did with my dress! The day was a HUGE success, mainly because I fitted into it, but also all the little things! Everyone commented on how lovely it looked and that they couldn't tell the back had been put in. I know it's your job and that's what you do, but the dress looked stunning and I'm so glad I chose you to fix it for me!! Thank you so much again Nikki, I couldn't have wished for a more beautiful and flattering dress and a more helpful and talented dressmaker!!
I just wanted to send you a couple of pics from our wedding day which went perfectly and the party last night with friends and family was a wonderful way to end our wedding celebrations :) I can't thank you both enough for all the work you put in, I've had many compliments about the dress and it really was the ONE!!! Thanks again.
Just say Nikki made my dress for my wedding in Mauritius and it was absolutely perfect! Highly recommend Nikki she excellent!
The day was brilliant and we both wish we could do it all again, if nothing else so we can wear our outfits again!
Being a reasonable seamstress myself, the prospect of altering my daughters ill fitting Prom Dress was too much for me. I had not used Nikki before but would certainly not hesitate to use her again. I found her after some basic internet research and from the first meeting she put our minds at rest that the problems could be solved. She was clear and concise about what she would do and how much it would cost. Her prices were very reasonable and the workmanship very good.
Just wanted to say thank you for altering my dress for my daughter's wedding, I managed to loose the last couple of pounds and the dress fitted like a glove, perfect. Thank you. The wedding was perfect and it was the most amazing trip of our lives. Thanking you again.
Just wanted to thank you again for making my dress so perfect. I had so many comments about how lovely it was and how well it fitted. It was an absolute pleasure to have you make the amendments to my dress and I won't hesitate to contact you again or pass on your details.
Going to fairytale occasions was such a great choice, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to go back. Nikki's kind nature helped me feel at ease with fittings, and she was easily able to make the perfect dress that was just what I wanted. I would highly recommend fairytale occasions to anybody looking for handmade occasion wear.
I approached Nikki to make my wedding veil because I wanted something unique and personal. Nikki had a wide selection of materials to use and advice on what would work and look best for the big day. Service from start to finish was always undertaken in both a friendly yet professional manner and I was extremely pleased with the finished product. Since then Nikki has also made 3 beautiful dresses for me which were made to measure and again provided a fantastic service, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend using Fairytale Occasions to any family or friends.
I cannot recommend Nikki and Fairytale Occasions highly enough - how wonderful as a bride to have one to one attention throughout, and genuinely feel individual. Fairytale Occasions created my dress completely from my own design, adding input where appropriate and sourcing all the materials / beading, etc. The dress was beautifully made, and certainly created the impact I wanted on my wedding day.
A huge thank you for making the bridesmaid dresses and cravats for our wedding - they looked amazing! I will of course send you some photos when we get them, but they were brilliant! They all fitted perfectly and with the ushers outfits and the whole wintery setting they looked great. We had a fantastic wedding and the outfits just helped to make it even more magical!
I had 6 bridesmaids ages ranging from 16 to 32, I wanted everyone to choose their own style of dress as not everyone suits the same styles, for Fairytale Occasions this was not an issue, having 6 Bridesmaids could have been a nightmare but Nicky made it so easy. She visited the Bridesmaids at my house, she did as many fittings as the Bridesmaids requested and she was so flexible nothing was a problem. The dresses were absolutely stunning and to please every Bridesmaid was a miracle!! I was thrilled with the dresses and have recommended Fairytale Occasions to a number of my friends who are getting married and to anyone else thinking of using their services they are brilliant!
I would recommend Nikki and Fairytale Occasions highly - she is a very personable person and has excellent skills as a seamstress. I have passed across many items of clothing for her to alter and she has done an excellent job on them, and is very reasonably priced. I would feel more than comfortable in asking her to make any item of clothing as her attention to detail is excellent and the finish perfect.
