Brides Reviews

Please take a few moments to have a look at our gorgeous brides feedback!


Ryley & Flynn has been incredible from start to finish! I'm beyond happy with Sam - both her work and her warm, caring personality that helped to keep me calm and excited for my big day in equal measure.

My wedding was in October and I wanted a black wedding dress. I came to her with a Pinterest board and a vague idea of what I wanted, and Sam managed to pull it all together, keep me in the loop at all times, and the final wedding dress was amazing!

She even went above and beyond to perfect the dress neckline, so that it would look just right for photos.  What she can do is nothing short of witchcraft.

I can't recommend Ryley & Flynn enough for hard work, dedication, and fantastic results. Thank you!

What can I say?!

Sam is an absolute pleasure to be with, brilliant at her job and very welcoming.

From the very start of my journey I felt so special, nothing is too much to ask. My dress was STUNNING! I had so many compliments. Thank you so much!

GO HERE! You WILL NOT regret it!

Sam was so wonderful to work with! I just wanted to say thank you so much! The way she works means that your involved every step of the way and alterations / changes can me be made to make sure it's exactly how you want and fits you perfectly! She's happy to take on unique challenges and put your personalality in the dress and is very reasonably priced! She's also a lovely lady that's nice to talk too and have a laugh with which makes things much easier!

Sam made my wedding dress this summer and I couldn't recommend her enough. Having a bespoke dress made felt like a gamble, but after bridal shops finally reopened in the spring, I still couldn't find anything that was quite right. I'm so glad I took that chance and got in touch with Sam - she put me at ease at every consultation, she really listened to all my ideas and feedback, and she had expert advice on the details I would never have thought of. She went above and beyond with sourcing fabrics, extra adjustments and an incredible turnaround time (even during the school holidays - so sorry!). The dress was absolutely beautiful. I felt completely myself, I was comfortable all day, and it received so many compliments. Couldn't be happier!

The new Mr & Mrs B!




Thank you so much for my wedding dress. Sam was lovely though the whole process – she answered any and all my questions and she worked to my very tight deadline. When I put the dress on for the first time, I felt amazing. It was just perfect. I would not hesitate in recommending Sam and would love to have more handmade dresses from her (hopefully not another wedding dress though!)



Thank You Sam,
The dress is wonderful and so are you! Thank you - I will never forget you...

I ordered a custom silk dupion bow sash for my wedding gown and it is exactly what I have imagined it to be. Sam is a lovely person to talk to and she is very helpful in giving me tips in choosing the fabric for my bow! Highly recommended!

Hi Sam,
I just picked up the dresses and........ OMG they are so amazing. I've got Rebecca's dress on now and it fits me! Feeling a bit jealous that I won't get to wear one! Lol.

To Sam,
Thank you so much for making me such a lovely petticoat and sash at the 11th hour! As you can see the dress looked amazing & we had a really good day. I wouldn't have been able to afford the dress of my dreams without your help.
Thank you
