Wow where to begin! I went into see Anna and tried on a number of dresses but fell in love with on in particular but as my family live abroad it was too late to FaceTime then so I arranged another date to come back in and try it on again. Anna was so understanding and was happy to let me do what I needed to do. I spent the next few weeks thinking about THE dress and when I went back in on Friday I said YES! Anna made me feel so at ease even with the COVID regulations in place I felt so safe in the store. The best part for me was Anna allowed me to bring my three year old with me to the appointment on Friday and it was so lovely being able to share this extremely special moment with my daughter! Thank you Anna for making me feel beautiful xxx

Anna made my Wedding Dress Shopping Experience simply amazing, it was a dream come true because all I ever wanted was for my Mum and my Nan to be able to come with me to find my dress, but due to Coronavirus most Bridal shops are only allowing one guest, so when Anna said I could bring 2 people along with me, I was over the moon. When we arrived at the boutique, she made all three of us feel so comfortable and welcome. It is a beautiful shop and Anna is so so lovely. I would recommend going to her shop 100%, there is a massive selection of dresses and I found my dress so it was a very exciting day in what had been up until this point a very trying and difficult time. So Thankyou Anna for making the appointment so special and helping me find My Dress!
Hi Laura Thank. you so much for your very kind words, I love receiving reviews and I am so pleased you had an amazing time. Huge congratulations on finding your perfect dress. All the very best Love Anna x

I was feeling really anxious about going wedding dress shopping, and sad that I couldn't take all my family, however as soon as we set foot into Anna Mcdonalds I felt at ease. I was allowed 2 of my sisters in with me and my mum and other sister went for a coffee next door. I went in expecting to leave with an idea of what I wanted but not to actually purchase. I ended up falling in love with my dream dress and ordering it on the same day! I was also so grateful that my Mum and sister could stand outside the door and see me in the dress and have a glass of prosecco with us! Thank you so much Anna for making it such an amazing experience!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure helping you find your dream dress and I am so glad you had an amazing time with us. It was amazing that your family could share that
Hi Anastasia Thank you so much for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure helping you find your dream dress and I am so glad you had an amazing time with us. It was amazing that your family could share that moment with you. Love Anna x
In these difficult times, wedding dress shopping felt daunting and stressful before I even stepped in the door, but Anna was amazing! She welcomed us, was so helpful and friendly, and made us feel safe.
I worried wearing a mask would ruin the special moment, but with Anna kind and friendly attitude, and her collection of stunning gowns, I barely noticed what was covering my face. She has a custom plastic shield so she could help me get in and out of the dresses smoothly, so my Mum could sit back and enjoy this moment she’s dreamed about for years and years. There was antibacterial gel at ever point in the store, and you could tell she had gone the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable.
Anna, thank you for your time, your expertise, and for not making me feel like I had to compromising this wonderful experience. I’m so thrilled to say I found my gown because of you!

As soon as I stepped through the door at Anna McDonald I immediately felt at ease. Despite being 15 mins early we were welcomed through the door with open arms and given a drink. I found Cait really knew how to style my figure and the dress I ended up picking was one she suggested! So not only are these lovely ladies, they also really know what they’re talking about! Thank you Anna Mcdonald for making my experience such a joy!
After sending a heartfelt message to Anna about my situation being 2019 I fell pregnant with our second son feeling such a sense of delight until June and my father was diagnosed with Stage 4 terminal lung cancer... My heart felt broken. My pregnancy was hard I wished the months away due to wanting baby to be with us but knowing that every day was precious with my dad so I felt such a rollercoaster of emotions. My baby came early 2 1/2 weeks and dad was still with us .... January 2020 arrived and dads still with us .... All the way along this journey he’s made himself very vocal he would like to see my married before he isn’t here anymore... Every time I heard this it broke my heart... We didn’t have the money to just get married so we just laughed it off ... I did think about his wishes and about the fact I would never have my dad walk me down the aisle ... I felt extremely sick to the stomach and it haunted me.
Until last week we started enquiring into the church, it started the ball rolling the next minute the date was set but we didnt have the money for all the extras so I put my circumstances on Facebook and contacted a few companies in hope they could maybe gift us some help ...
Anna was one of those companies , I was nervous to ask but she replied straight back to me and was so extremely helpful ... I also explained I was plus size she made it no issue which was so kind as I feel so insecure about my weight after having a baby 2months ago. She booked me in for a fitting today and treated me, my sister and mum oh and baby like paying customer she made us feel relaxed and special which was so kind. Kate one of her staff was amazing she had the magical touch I just felt relaxed and nothing was too much trouble .... 3 dresses in and my princess for the day dress was found. They gifted me the dress, tiara and veil for the special day. I felt such emotion when trying the dress on and they had genuine compassion and care about how I wanted to look on the day.
The most important part of the jigsaw was finally found today, although I made out that I wouldn’t care what I look like as long as the day happens - I lied and you guys have given me confidence that although I’m bigger than I hoped for my wedding day I feel beautiful again , thank you to Anna and Kate.
I had an unbelievably outstanding dress fitting with Cait, who put my nerves at ease and answered all my silly questions. I felt very welcomed and found the mos beautiful dress. I couldn't be happier with the services provided... maybe a couple more glasses of bucks fizz? Haha.
What an amazing shop ! I am a plus size bride and was so nervous about trying on dresses . We had Kate in store looking after us and the first dress she chose is the one I ended up buying . She made me feel special and beautiful and made no problem out of the fact I was plus size . Would suggest it to anyone !!
