Bridal made to measure - this beautiful skirt was made out of duchess satin and the bride looked absolutely stunning. Champagne was the right colour to chose and worked well with the lace applique. Sooo beautiful! #special #weddingdress #bridal brideandalter photo

Bridesmaids & Bridal Party


We offer free consultations to brides to discuss wedding dresses before they buy. The consultation aims to help to make the right decision in terms of buying the dress for your body shape, your type of wedding, and staying in budget with alteration costs.



Bride & Alter were wonderful – amazing work on my wedding dress and they made the whole process enjoyable and calm. Would highly recommend. A.L. March 2020 

I can’t thank you again for everything you did for me and my dress. It fitted perfectly and made my day even more magical! I wanted to show you some pictures from the day! S.P. November 2019
