We came to Alta Costura after seeing an ad on Facebook. I wasn’t expecting to find my dream dress, but I think I have. As a 5’1, size 20 woman I often struggle to find clothes that fit and I despise shopping. I don’t like the way I look ever. This was just so magical, everything I tried on I felt beautiful. Emma Jane helped us and she was like a magical little fairy picking me the prettiest dresses. She was so lovely and kind. Having my sister and friend help me dress was nice too, so I felt a lot less exposed. Honestly, I’ve been to many bridal shops with friends over the years and none have been as wonderful as yours. Even in the midst of a pandemic you made me feel special. I loved every second.

Had an amazing appointment today, my consultant today was Lucy, she was a pleasure to work with. She found my dress and made me feel so comfortable and welcome. Would recommend any bride to be to make an appointment at alta costura.

I SAID YES TO THE DRESS here at Alta Costura! The experience was stress/pressure free and completely made perfect by Sarah who helped me chose. Initially, I was nervous and apprehensive but she made me feel comfortable immediately. Sarah was patient and allowed me to chose some dresses to try on. After, listening carefully to what I wanted Sarah chose some dresses for me to try and one turned out to be the perfect dress, I tried it one on and felt A-mazing. She had chosen me the perfect dress. Sarah made it easy and was so friendly. So happy with the dress, service and appointment I had at Alta Costura. 100% recommend.

My bridal experience was lovely, thanks to Sarah and the rest of the team. It was my first time dress shopping and Sarah listen to everything I wanted, and made sure I tried on a selection of dresses to find the right shape and style. I am very happy to say I said yes to the dress and looking forward to going back to the beautiful bridal shop for fittings and more. Thank you!

Absolutely loved every minute of my experience I new I found my dress as soon I see it, I kept seeing the bridal shop on Facebook and even though I lived an hour drives away I new I would find my dress, after trying on only 3 dresses I went with my gut and looked no further,, the lady who assisted me was an absolute gem, (sorry I can’t remember her name, was to exited ??) all staffed worked amazingly with the new rules put in place due to covid. Thank you all so much

I can’t give anything but 5 stars for my experience! Sarah was amazing putting me at ease and throwing up some wild card dresses to challenge what I wanted and opening my eyes! On my first appointment ever I’ve picked me dress and I really did get the full bridal, Cinderella treatment at this store. All the staff were friendly and I couldn’t recommend the store enough! Thank you all!

Lovely, friendly staff, very helpfull and considerate and lovely range of dresses. As a first experience in a bridal shop this was the best choice I made.

Alta Costura were absolutely incredible today. They managed to squeeze me in amongst the madness, and I found my perfect dress. Emma was so kind, funny and sweet, and I couldnt have asked for a better appointment. The dresses are all beautiful, and felt so much better quality and more unique than the other dresses found in the previous stores I visited. Alta and Emma went out of their way to make the dress perfect, requesting custom alterations from the designer. I am so grateful that they made my vision a reality, and can't thank them enough. I am obsessed with my dress, and cant wait to go back to try it on again ??

Best bridal shop I have been to so far! The staff member who assisted us was very professional and had great knowledge. They ensured that all dresses were within my budget and listened carefully to what style and elements I wanted to include. There was another party also having a dress appointment at the same time however this was not a big distraction as distance was maintained and I was able to communicate with the staff member clearly without being interrupted.
Lois from Maidstone

So many beautiful dresses and Alta was so helpful and understanding. Alta took me out of my comfort zone with the style dress I was going for and made me realise I could pull it off and gave me a huge confidence boost.
