Discover your perfect designer wedding dress with our personalised boutique service
Generations of expertise
Our family-run boutique brings over 40 years of experience in the wedding industry and is led by Susan Hirst, with her daughter Jodie (and granddaughter Beau in tow) and a team of experienced stylists. We’re here to make sure you find a wedding dress that flatters your figure, meets your budget and seamlessly fits into the style and theme of your wedding day.
An experience to cherish
Whatever your body shape or size, your dedicated stylist will handpick a selection of stunning dresses to make you feel beautiful and confident based on your personality, preferences and wedding dress dreams. Working by appointment only, you’ll have our undivided attention. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the VIP treatment as you slip into each exquisite dress before you make your final pick.
More than wedding dresses
Beautiful brides aren’t the only ones in the wedding party we cater to, we also have beautiful Bridesmaids dresses. Grooms and groomsmen can also choose from our designer collection which is available for hire.
Buying Your Perfect Dress
The ideal time for a bride to start looking for her perfect dress is 18 months to 2 years in advance. However, urgent orders can be received in 6 months but the more organised a bride can be, the more time there will be to order dresses and embellishments and have a relaxed fitting.
From the first time I met Susan at a wedding fayre back in January, she was absolutely amazing... I had 7 months to find the dress of my dreams. Instead of saying... that's not enough time. She seemed as keen as ever to get me sorted..and was genuinely worried for me, and said she had a couple of dresses in mind.
So professional, friendly and helpful with great attention to detail. I'm only petite, but my dress was made to measure and fitted perfectly. I felt like a fairy princess. Nothing was too much trouble. I can't thank the ladies enough for all their help, advice and reassurance... you were all so lovely and made it a wonderful and exciting experience for me... I feel very lucky to have found you 💓 xxx
