A Romantic Setting For Your Wedding Dress Shopping Experience.

wedding dress shop in derbyshire

Nestled in the peaceful, picture-postcard town of Bakewell in Derbyshire, we aim to transform the daunting job of finding the perfect wedding dress into an intimate, relaxing and deeply memorable experience.

Less than an hour away from Sheffield, Nottingham & Derby but a world apart from the hustle and bustle of city life, this historic town is a beautiful place to visit. So why not spend the day here and take time to look forward to your big day over a coffee or two, a meal in a beautiful restaurant or a stroll along the banks of the River Wye?


Choosing A Wedding Dress Should Be An Enjoyable Experience, Not An Ordeal.

Find the perfect wedding dress for your wedding

With a serene location and a relaxed atmosphere that sets us apart from city centre shops, our boutique store is carefully designed to enhance your shopping experience. 

A huge choice of dresses, spacious dressing rooms and quiet, comfortable spaces for discussion and contemplation, all combine to create a unique minimum-pressure, maximum-pleasure shopping experience.

We allow a minimum of two hours for every appointment, allowing you time to browse the collection and try on a variety of designs, fits and colours. We’ll  guide you through the experience until you discover the one wedding dress that you simply won’t want to take off.


An Experienced Team Who Understand You And Your Wedding.

Our small, family-based team is made up of two highly experienced textile and fashion designers and a bridal-seamstress with a lifetime of practical know-how. Between us, our passion for wedding dresses, and the unique emotions they command, extends over 70 years. 

We understand how a great dress looks and fits. But most of all, we know how a great wedding dress should make you feel. And we’ll do all we can to help you find the wedding dress that makes you feel that way.

With empathy and honesty as our cornerstones, we always answer questions truthfully and constructively and we’ll never pressure you into making a choice. Leaving you free to make your own decisions, using our advice as you see fit.

What’s more, because our team is small, you can be sure you will always be able to discuss your dress, and your big day, with the same person.

Once you have made your choice, a 50% deposit is payable and the dress is ordered.  As all our dresses are made to order, there is a 4-6 month wait before the dress is delivered to us.  Once it has arrived, the balance is payable and you are free to take the dress home.


A Complete Wedding Dress Service

A few weeks before the big day, we’ll invite you to bring the dress back in for a final fitting, where our highly experienced seamstress will make any necessary adjustments to make sure every tiny detail fits, looks and feels, absolutely perfect. Your dress is then ready for you to wear, enjoy and cherish long into the future.

If your timeframe is a little tighter than that, just give us a call. There is always a way we can help. We’ll talk through your options and together we’ll find a dress and a process that has you looking and feeling totally gorgeous in time for the big day!


Our Philosophy On Weddings, Dresses, Brides and The Big Day

We love what we do. And it shows.

We know that the perfect wedding doesn’t depend on the perfect wedding dress, but it does depend on how the bride feels. And the right wedding dress should make you feel beautiful, confident, comfortable and relaxed.

When you walk down the aisle with your partner, you step into the future together.  You deserve to start that journey feeling beautiful, inside and out.

With every new bride that steps through our door, we embrace the challenge – to find that dress. And to help each and every bride find her most beautiful and confident self.
