Bless them ! Going above and beyond to make my dress special. Even though I had an idea what I wanted and we had to completely start from scratch. Nothing was too much trouble to make this amazing dress. Thank-you.

So I said yes to the dress with the help of Molly, who was soo friendly and made me feel so relaxed and comfortable the whole way through my time in the store. There is such a beautiful selection if dresses (too many to choose from). Going in with a dress in mind that I saw on the website, she showed me a variety of other dress styles to try and helped me find 'The One'. Couldn't recommend Alta Costura enough! Incredible team and unforgettable experience! Thank you! x

The lovely lady Hannah was very kind and friendly and didn't rush me, letting me try on lots of dresses and was very good at pinning them in to make a better fit. I found my dress today and I am very happy with it. Thank you very much !!

Was greated by friendly staff. Really liked the lay out of the shop with sections, for each bride to be that were away from each other so you felt it was more personal. Lovely selection of dresses to try on as well! Would highly recommend

I absolutely loved my time at Alta Costura, I was really nervous about trying dresses on but that was put straight to ease and I loved every second! The girls were so welcoming and all got involved, even if just walking by they’d give a comment. Nothing was too much trouble, I tried every style of dress! Special mention to the bride flute and card given to me when purchasing my dress, lovely touch!

I have had great customer service from the second I walked through the door to pick my dress. But the icing on the cake was Daphne your seamstress. Without her care and attention and craftsman ship my dress wouldn't be my dress! I didn't think I could fall anymore in love with my dress and then Daphne worked her magic. Thank you Daphne, but also helps your such a lovely lady. Clearly love what you do and that makes a difference

I had the best experience here! I had Joanne as my wedding consultant and she was just brilliant. She made me feel very at ease and she helped bring me out of my comfort zone. I found an amazing dress that I probably wouldn’t have typically picked. I would definitely recommend visiting the store!

A lovely afternoon! Molly took care of us and made me feel so comfortable. She was very welcoming and wasn’t pushy at all. Molly listened to my likes and dislikes plus she was able to show me dresses for my body type that I hadn’t considered before. My favourite dress ended up being one that Molly had picked out for me. She was amazing! She took such care and seemed to genuinely Care. She wasn’t pushy about getting a sale or rushing through the dresses, she let us take our time and made the whole experience very relaxing. I’m going back to see her again and would recommend to everyone! Xx

The girls at Alta Costura were amazing and made me feel so at ease! The shop was stunning, clean and set up perfectly for the appointment. I attended for my appointment, went away for lunch and was straight back to put my deposit down. I couldn’t be happier with the service I received and my dress!! Thank you Alta Costura!

I previously visited another bridal shop for a wedding dress (which I shall not name) and not only was the place freezing cold, but I also felt the reception was cold, and I walked away disappointed. Alta Costura gave me a whole new experience. I had Sarah who took care of my mum and I and was so lovely and helpful and made it personal to me. I said yes to an AMAZING dress and cannot wait to see it again for my fitting. Thank you so much Sarah and the team. I could not recommend Alta Costura enough! ?????????

Arrived for my first fitting. Greeted and welcomed by smiley ladies who seemed almost as excited about my dress as I was. Fitting was easy with a very kind professional seamstress who listened to what I wanted. Can’t wait to see the finished version in a couple of weeks. Wonderful service couldn’t ask for more.

Lauren was absolutely fantastic. I came in wanting to try on a particular style, and was pleasantly surprised by some of the other styles we selected. I've found 2 dresses that I really like, and one that I love. And two veils! Now it's just choosing which one and committing. I didn't feel rushed and as someone who is quite self-conscious I had just the right about of privacy.

I really can not rate these ladies enough, should be 10 stars ??!!! Amazing bridal store, the ladies know their stuff. I am not one for dresses and being a curvy person I was very anxious about trying on wedding dresses. My anxiety was put to ease and they went above and beyond to make me feel special. Can’t wait to go back and say yes to the dress.

I had a wonderful time trying on the different beautiful dresses. It was my first ever dress fitting and I was so nervous as I’m a plus sized bride. Hannah made me feel so much better and made me feel like a princess! I cannot recommend Alta Costura enough for a nervous bride to be. I have another fitting to go to, but I have a strong feeling I’ll be going back to say yes to the dress!

I had the absolute best time with Jo! She was so welcoming and kind to me, my mum, my dad and my sister and didn’t mind me not being 100% sure about what I wanted. She completely took everything I said on board and even let me run over my allocated time, not that she mentioned time at all. I could not recommend her highly enough, she gave her honest opinion and it was like having another friend with me on the appointment. Jo absolutely made my day

Alta Costura have made shopping for and buying a wedding dress both fun and painless. Everyone has been extremely helpful, knowledgable and friendly throughout. The seamstress Isabella was lovely and her work on my dress is faultless. I am so happy with the service received, I would recommend all involved in a heartbeat. I can’t thank everyone enough.

Today I went for my appointment with Sarah and wasn’t expecting to find THE dress, but I did!! Sarah was so knowledgeable and made me feel absolutely at ease. She was so patient with me! All the ladies in the shop are so welcoming and chatty. For someone who hates shopping, I had a lovely time. Thank you.

The staff made me feel very welcome when we entered the shop. They were very very helpful. As a older bride I thought it was going to be difficult to choose a dress the shop had just what I wanted. I love the little jester they have like a free gift and the little hearts to put on the tree.
