Customer Comments

Kate was amazing! A bespoke dress, a bespoke service, attention to detail and totally in-tune with my needs. Private appointments with no interruptions. I would highly recommend Kate, her service and her collection to any bride. She took customer service to the highest level. Thank you Kate.

Kate was amazing when I went in and chose my wedding dress. Her prices are amazing and competitive and the quality of service is second to none. I recommend her ALL the time! I look forward to spending more time with her leading up to my wedding.

I went to many different wedding dress shops in Taunton and Exeter looking for a dress and nothing topped the experience of going to Kate Walker in Honiton. It was so personal and exactly how I had imagined choosing my dress would be like. The shop is closed just for your appointment and Kate is so friendly, helpful and made the whole experience amazing. Her range of dresses was beautiful and there I found 'the dress'. Nothing was ever too much for Kate and you could tell how much she loved her job. I also knew that she would always offer her honest opinion and wouldn't let me leave with everything (shoes, dress, accessories etc) without me feeling 100% happy. I felt amazing on my wedding day and everything was perfect. The dress was made to perfection and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!

Kate Walker is amazing. Not Only are her dresses beautiful she is a truly honest lady. I recommend Kate to anyone and everyone I know getting married, good luck kate x

My wedding dress was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen - it was also the first dress I tried on. Thanks to Kate's incredible service and eye for what suited me, I felt absolutely no need to go anywhere else to try on any other dresses after visiting her. She made the experience of finding my wedding dress an incredibly special one and for that she deserves this award. I recommend every west country bride to go to her.

Kate offers a fantastic service. As a designer herself she knows what suits everyone's body shapes and so can advise without being in the least bit pushy. Offering sound practical advice, Kate is very down to earth and sincere. I had total confidence that my dress would fit perfectly on the day!

Kate Walker welcomed me as soon as I entered her boutique with the most friendly smile and service. She was incredibly helpful and most importantly honest and not pushy on sales! How many brides can come away from the place where they purchased their dress and say they made a new friend? None that I know. More so, Kate shared my creative passion, sharing her experience and inspired me to set myself up as a freelance photographer as well as providing me with some assisting opportunities working on photo shoot's with her boutique. This has been invaluable and I can't event begin to Thank her enough. Kate Walker Bridal Ltd is simply one of a kind.

Kate Walker went over and beyond when I landed in her bridal boutique with a wedding in 9 weeks and no dress. Her designs and attention detail are amazing. A truly wonderful experience getting my dress from Kate.

From the moment I walked into Kate Walkers boutique I knew I would find my wedding dress in there, not just because of the beautiful dresses, but because of Kate herself. She designed me a beautiful bespoke gown that turned out even better than the image I had in my head. But she did so much more than make my dress. She gave me the confidence on my wedding day to enjoy it, her advice, attention and all round loveliness helped a very nervous bride! I feel very very lucky to have found her!

Going wedding dress shopping is something every girl dreams of only I was dreading it. It's something a girl does with her mum, sadly mine was no longer with us. Kate walker put the magic back it to it for me and made it special! She took a real interest in the the wedding theme, where it was the colours etc she really cared. She has a fantastic sense of what would look good on me and she managed to create the dress of my dreams. She didn't even flinch when i told her that I was planning to get on my horse in this dress she had spent hours making. Going to each fitting felt like visiting a friend. You can tell she really cares about her brides, she even cried during my last fitting (as did I!). I have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day and that stunning bespoke dress.

She was Amazing and everytime I had to see her it was a joy and she always gave 100%, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Since my wedding I have recommended her to many of my friends and if I had one wish it would be to do the whole experience again!

It's not just 'The Kate Walker Bridal boutique' but 'The Kate Walker Bridal experience' from the first time you meet Kate you know that you are in safe hands and will look your absolute best on your wedding day. Her wealth of knowledge, experience, ability to make just about anything you would like, commitment, patience and personal touch come second to none. This was by far the most exciting feeling running up to our wedding, every appointment wondering what my dress was going to look like next from toile to aisle! Kate makes you feel special from the first day you walk into the Boutique ensuring that It's not 'your special day' but your 'special year!'

I searched for my dream dress and couldn't find it, then someone introduced me to Kate, I immediately felt relaxed with her and knew she understood exactly what I wanted. When I stepped into Kate's boutique For her to design my bespoke dress I felt so special, she is extremely professional and cares so much about what she does. I visited her at least 5 or 6 times, the boutique was always closed and I was given her undivided attention. Kate is so down to earth and I felt I really got to know her as a friend, yet she always kept her professionalism. Kate dressed me on my wedding day and I felt like the most special person on the planet. If you want value for money, the dress of your dreams, designed and made by someone who cares So much about everything she does, then Kate is the one!

As I fell pregnant before my big day but Kate offered to do any alterations to the new dress and was available to look at styles for me so I still ended up wearing a dress that suited me. I can't recommend Kate highly enough, she is a wonderful, kind lady who deserves to win more than anyone! I can't wait for my photo shoot in my Kate Walker dress after my baby is here :D xxx

Blooming amazing from the moment I went in I knew that was where I was going to find my dress. Such a personable service, I miss going in!

Going to Kate's boutique made me feel so special and was my favourite part of wedding preparations. She is creative enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgable.

Kate was amazing in every way! From the first moment that I walked into her boutique I knew I wanted to get my dress from her. She was so down to earth and always accommodating with my awkward schedule. Kate made me dress herself and it was just perfect - I had so many compliments on it on the day - even from men! Due to Kate's attention to detail me dress fitted perfectly, as did my Mum's outfit as she ended up altering that for her as well! I would not hesitate in recommending any future brides to go and see Kate for their dress.

Kate made choosing my wedding dress the most incredible experience, from her friendly smile welcoming you into her beautiful boutique to making my mum feel welcome & involved & making her lovely cups of tea. Kate made the whole process from choosing my dress, the fittings, to collecting my dress to take home, the most special experience & one that I will never forget. I Truly miss my Kate appointments to look forward too, I wish I could do it all again!!

Kate Walker at Kate Walker Bridal was absolutely incredible! The dress was so very beautiful, and Kate was such a breath of fresh air in all the wedding chaos. I saw my dress very late in the process, and Kate fitted me in and made me feel like I had all the time in the world. Kate's attention to detail and attitude makes it feel more like your sister who happens to be an outstanding dressmaker, rather than a very busy lady with a wedding boutique! If this doesn't end well, I'll definitely get my next dress from Kate Walker Bridal!

A fantastic service. Kate takes the time to get to know you and has a genuine interest in your wedding. Personalised service that makes you feel unique and special not to mention beautiful dresses. Everyone was commenting on the dress on my wedding day. Would recommend Kate to anyone.

Kate is amazing, she is so easy to talk to and understood me completely, made me feel like the only bride in the world and feels like a genuine friend. Her work, commitment and drive is outstanding. I wouldn't hesitated to recommend Kate for her design, workmanship, professionalism and dedication.

Absolutely amazing service from Kate Walker Bridal. The minute you walk into her shop of paradise you are greeted with a smile, gratitude and dedication to find the dress of your dreams. Kate is so friendly and polite you feel like you have been friends for years, nothing is too much trouble for this lady. Good luck Kate you deserve the recognition for you hard work and professionalism. Thank you best wishes

From the first moment I stepped into Kate's boutique, I knew that she was going to be able to work her magic and make my dream dress a reality. Having been to a couple other bridal shops I was beginning to think my perfect wedding dress didn't exist. But how wrong was I... Kate went out of her way to ensure every detail was included and that my dress was completely unique to me. Couldn't have been happier on the day. Highly recommended!

Kate provided a phenomenol bespoke service. She deserves this award as she puts her heart and sole and so much passion into her work and to make every brides day as special as it possibly can be. She works so hard to ensure everything is just as it should be and her attention to detail and eye for each individual brides particular style is second to none. For us, Kate has already won this award, we could not have imagined our day without her being a part of it. X

Brilliant from start to finish. Such attention to detail to make sure I had the perfect bespoke dress for me. Went out of her way even changing all the buttons on the dress after the final fitting for no extra charge and repairing the dress after the wedding! I would recommend Kate to anyone looking for their perfect dress.

Excellent experience. Could not fault

Just simply outstanding . I have never experienced such phenomenal customer service , the experience was so personal and individual it was a sheer joy and pleasure. Kate is an amazing woman who knows her craft inside out and can find the perfect dress for any bride . She is hands down the best in the business

Kate Walker Bridal is an extremely special, unique and wonderful shop. I really didn't think I was going to enjoy the dress shopping experience as I thought there would be too many choices and too much pressure. But Kate changed all of that; from the moment I walked into the shop and met Kate, I was instantly put at ease. She made me feel happy and confident - and so excited about the big day. Together we found the perfect dress, which Kate had the vision and talent to modify to best suit me - and I (and my mum) loved every moment of being a "Kate Walker Bride". Kate's attention to detail and care for each of her brides is second to none. She certainly deserves this award. She is an incredible talent - and a kind and wonderful person. I would recommend Kate Walker Bridal to everyone

I couldn't recommend Kate Walker enough. From my first appointment right up to the wedding day she was fantastic to work with, very professional, friendly, honest and talented. We worked together to design the exact dress I was after. She also came to my house on the day of the wedding to dress me. A superb experience and highly recommend.

Kate walker bridal couldn't do enough for me, I fell in love with the service first and it was all Kate could do to find me the dress I would fall in live with too! Made me feel Like a princess, love the fact the food is locked and its a private appointment with no walk ins. Miles in front of all the other local bridal shops when it comes to service! Kate Walker definitely has my vote!

Absolutely wonderful service made personal to us, Kate is a fantastic designer and adapted two of her dresses to make a bespoke dress for me, with an ever growing baby bump she worked hard right up to the week before our wedding to ensure my dress fitted me perfectly and my bump, I would highly recommend her to every bride. As soon as you step into her beautiful boutique you are the centre of attention and made to feel like a princess, she listened to exactly what I wanted and showed me styles that would suit my frame, my dress sis completely unique and now hangs pride of place on our bedroom wall so every morning is a beautiful reminder of our lovely day, I've only ever heard praise for Kate Walker and she is a credit to her profession. :)

Kate was very professional throughout and went that extra mile for me to make sure my dress was perfect. I travelled all the way from Cardiff to go to Kate and i am so glad i did as she was fantastic.

Kate is brilliant, I'd highly recommend here. Beautiful boutique and stunning dresses.

Kate was extremely helpful in helping me find THE ONE dress I was having a lot of trouble with other aspects of my wedding and she was very helpful in helping me with that too. Kate is a wonderful lady and now someone I consider a friend.

Impeccable service. I fell pregnant after my initial measurements were taken, kate worked with my growing tummy and tailored my dress to fit perfectly over my bump and I felt amazing in my dream dress. Kate is so professional yet so relaxed and the whole experience from start to finish could not have been better. I was sad when I no longer needed appointments! But we have kept in contact. I feel honoured to be able to nominate such a talented lady.

I found the whole experience of choosing my wedding dress was wonderful. From the first moment I met Kate I knew I wanted one of her dresses and cannot express enough how much help she was to me, nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend Kate for this award as she works so hard for her clients and her service is first class.

Kate is incredibly welcoming and unlike some bridal outfitters, we were not intimidated at all. Kate is very honest and does not try to sell you the most expensive dress, but the dress that right for you. I loved my experience, and only wish I could do it all again!

Kate was fantastic she made me feel very special and took time to help me find my perfect dress. She was very professional and experienced and cared about my day. I would reccomend Kate to all brides.

Kate was wonderful, her advice was really useful and she went above and beyond to help create a beautiful dress and to make it fit perfectly. Living in Southampton, I was willing to travel to her because of her reputation, and it was worth every mile.

Kate is wonderful - excellent service.

A truly talented lady who quite clearly loves her job. Amazing. Thank you Kate x

An amazing woman, made me feel so special and I trusted her completely in the making of my dress and having it done perfectly for the wedding! she deserves this award for the uniqueness of her service, attention to detail, passion for local trade and most importantly her kindness. Kate muchly and would reccomend her to all!

Kate has a wonderful hard working attitude. She is a wonderful down to earth person who really cares about every little detail especially as I was a three hour drive away. She was really special to my family too. I would have invited her to the wedding except for the distance. She really deserves this award. Her manner is fantastic.x

Kate was a wonderful person. She made what was for me a potentially stressful experience, fun and i felt so beautiful in my dress. Her vision created me a stunning gown and i am so thankful to her.

Never mind Harry Potter, Kate Walker is a REAL magician! What this bridal seamstress and designer can't do with a needle and thread she does with her kindness, thoughtfulness and genuine interest in YOU. To have a continued enthusiasm client after client, remember all your little details and concerns could be a real challenge for some, but not Kate. Her attention to every minute detail of the dress which you dream about wearing from when you were a little girl is unfaltering. To Kate you aren't a customer, she treats you like a princess and she is indeed the Fairy Godmother. My six hour round trips each visit to her beautiful boutique were completely worth it and if I hadn't just married the man of my dreams I would want to do it all over again! Thank you Kate.

Kate went the extra mile on everything. Very attentive to detail. Great suggestions for what suited. Very accomodating with opening her shop late for fittings etc... I couldn't have been more pleased with the service. Have recommended her highly to several friends.

For someone who has only worn a dress a handful of times, Kate made me extremely comfortable and stress free with her knowledge and expertise. The dress was superbly made, I have no quarms at all.

Wedding dress shopping at Kate Walker Bridal was heavenly. Kate made my family and me feel so welcome when trying on dresses and going for fittings. She was so understanding when I had reservations about my dress choice and Kate and her team went put of their way to help me amd ensure I had my dream dress.
