We had such a lovely time on Saturday. Joanne was so lovely, she explained the process and was very patient. I was scared I wasn't going to find the one however with Joanne's help and expertise, I said yes to a dress. I'm so excited. Thank you for the best time.

Being a plus size bride I was very worried about the whole process and didn’t think I’d find a dress. The ladies at Alta made me feel very comfortable in my own skin and allowed me to find my dream dress. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Such a lovely store. Jade made me feel at ease from the get go and had so much patience whilst I tried on lots of dresses and narrowed it down. She also suggested some gorgeous dresses based on what she heard me feedback on others. Tracy was also helpful in giving advice / tips on ideas for alterations. Amazing experience and far better than I had in some London shops. Big high five to you all x

Jade was absolutely amazing. I went in not having a clue what I really wanted and feeling very anxious and nervous about the whole thing. Well that soon went with Jades support, help and excellent knowledge. An experience I was dreading turned out to be the best day, with me saying yes to my dream dress. Thank you so much to all the friendly staff. For making me and my bridal crew feel very welcome.

I'm so glad I chose Alta Costura. They made me feel like a friend and went the extra mile with appointments. I have recently put my dress away after the wedding and it's safe to say I will miss it! I definitely recommend getting your dress tailored, as I just knew that it would fit and didn't have to worry about it on the day, especially when dancing and walking down the aisle (although I would also suggest if you have boning that you make them more comfortable). Thank you for your hospitality and for a lovely, memorable life experience.

Lauren was so fantastic I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help. Although I couldn’t pick a dress to buy today she listened to everything I wanted and she found so many stunning dresses. When I have finally decided I will be sure to consult her. She was so kind as I am unwell and struggle to walk and stand sometimes she showed so much care throughout. This is my first time trying dresses on and I am so glad it was here, I couldn’t go anywhere else now! Thankyou Lauren

Every visit has been lovely - the store itself is beautiful and very inviting and you are made to feel at ease and very welcome. From my first visit with Lauren helping find my dress to my appointments with Ines doing the alterations I have nothing but positive things to say. Ines is a lovely and very talented woman! I am very grateful for the beautiful and skilful alterations made to my dress and grateful for Lauren finding the perfect dress for me. Alta Costura Bride is a great store filled with lovely people. Very excited to wear my dress properly in 3 weeks! Thank you ❤️

My sister and I were warmly welcomed to this beautiful boutique - staff were lovely and the whole experience was fabulous. There were so many beautiful dresses to choose from - ball gowns, A-line, lace, classic and many more. It is easy to get overwhelmed by choices but the staff made sure we were guided through the selection process which kept us all in check. I would definitely recommend Alta Costura Bride to anyone!

Everything about my experience at Alta Costura was utter perfection! Jade was absolutely faultless and went above and beyond to make dress shopping such a fantastic and fun experience. She is so warm and kind and we could all tell she genuinely loves her job. There was no pressure on the day to buy a dress which was really nice and after going to a few other bridal shops since, Alta is the complete winner in all catagories and I will be recommending it to everyone! I'll be back soon to 'say yes to the dress!' Thank you so so much Jade!

Thank you so much for taking such good care of myself and my bridal party, I had Jade as my consultant and she was absolutely amazing, she listened to everything I liked and disliked and by the end knew exactly what I was looking and found me my dream dress. She was so lovely and made me feel so comfortable and confident with the whole experience. I cannot thank you all enough but especially Jade. You made this so magical for me so thank you.

Lovely relaxing appointment in a beautiful environment, was very happy with my fitting & excited to collect it for my special day. All the ladies are lovely & I love the way they compliment all the brides & the brides compliment other brides, even though you have privacy you also get to see other beautiful dresses that have been chosen by the brides.

So pleased with my dress, the ladies are so helpful and understand the brides needs, for me I am losing weight so they advised me how much I would need to lose for a certain size, such great communication when dress arrived and fitting was great too.

I can’t thank the lovely team at Alta’s highly enough, they are all absolutely incredible! Being a plus size bride was a fear of mine but I was never once treated as anything other than a ‘bride’ and this really stood out to me and made my experience so much more enjoyable!! My fantastic seamstress Daphne, worked wonders to alter my dress and made sure at every point that I was included in the decision making! The absolute best experience!!!

I am a plus sized bride and finding the whole wedding dress shopping very overwhelming, UNTIL I came to Alta Costura Bride! Sarah looked after me and never once made me feel self conscious, infact I felt the opposite! I had a a huge number of dresses that I tried on and felt very comfortable doing so. I never felt rushed, Sarah was so helpful and I felt she was there for ME!! Thank you Alta Costura Bride you made a rough experience really enjoyable. And I got to say YES TO THE DRESS.

My first dress fitting today with the seamstress Bella was a very pleasant appointment, Bella made me feel so at ease and very comfortable in her company and a conversations. She listens to what I wanted and worked around myself. Great appointment today and looking forward to my next one. Staff were all pleasant as usual too and offered me a drink as soon as I arrived, great time for me

From the first moment I walked into the shop, I have been so impressed by the professionalism and kindness shown by the staff. Special mention must go to Natasha who was simply wonderful at making an insecure and nervous bride feel comfortable and even confident in their new attire. Daphne has worked wonders also to ensure that the whole ensemble looks perfect. Thank you very much x

I have had three appointments with Tash and her service has been nothing short of exceptional. I came in thinking I wanted one thing, and then settled on a totally different style, meaning it has taken us a few appointments to narrow things down. Tash was friendly and welcoming from the very beginning and understood this was a big purchase for me - I never felt rushed or pressured, and I always felt like Tash was working with me to find what I really wanted. Her knowledge of designers and styles was fantastic. Her genuine nature means I never felt nervous about coming into the store or asking for something different. Her customer service genuinely made me determined to be an AC bride! I wanted a bridal store where I would be happy to come in for alternations and appointments throughout the process, and Tash has provided that. I have had the best experience, thank you Tash!
