Find out about our wedding dresses.

The Bridal Boutique Experience

Our aim is to give you an experience that is second-to-none and to help you look and feel fabulous on your wedding day.

We provide our brides with an experienced bridal consultant and exclusive use of our bridal suite. Our spacious and private changing facilities ensure a relaxed, enjoyable appointment with no sharing with other bridal parties. 

Appointments and Browsing

Every bride deserves a fabulous experience when choosing their wedding dress. We advise that you book an appointment with our consultants to get the best possible service.

During an appointment, you will receive 90 minutes of our undivided attention. In this time, we will talk to you about the styles, fabrics and colours you like. We will help you choose a selection of dresses for you to try on, along with veils, headpieces and shoes.

We do understand that it may be difficult for some brides to visit during our normal opening hours. We will make every effort to accommodate later appointments in the evening.

For our opening times and address details, see our contact us page.

Browsing without appointments

No appointment is necessary to browse our collections during our normal opening hours. However, please be aware that browsing may prove difficult if an appointment is in progress. Saturdays are particularly busy. Contact us to make an appointment.
