Welcome to The Bride

We have been helping brides find ‘the one’ since 2007, and from the first day we opened our passion hasn’t swayed; we are focussed on outstanding customer service, working with our brides to create their dream dress, and create life long memories along the way.

Our elegant boutique situated in St Albans specialises in exquisite handmade wedding dresses.  Our collections are all designed and made here in the UK by celebrated British designers Andrea Hawkes, Sassi Holford, Stephanie Allin, Suzanne Neville and most recently Temperley

We are here to help you and can’t wait to be part of this journey with you!
