Lovely experience at the shop. Was helped by Emma Jane who was very friendly and gave lots of helpful tips- I preferred the dresses she picked out for me! I hope to be able to come back to the shop once we are out of lockdown!

I loved my visit to Alta costura. At these troubled times with the Coronavirus I was worried my appointment wouldn’t go ahead, however Alta kept me updated throughout. My fitting was faultless and it was so nice to try my dress on again. Thank you Alta and your team xx

Wow, what an amazing morning we had! Right from the second we walked through the door we felt so welcomed - everyone got a hot drink and biscuits and we were shown through to a lovely private area with sofa and dressing room. Our host was fantastic, talked me through what would happen and helped me choose a dress from each style as I wasn't sure where to start. Dresses were beautiful and laid out so clearly to look through. The trying on was amazing too - everything was so relaxed, I had loads of help in the dressing room to get into the dresses, our host was completely impartial and focused on what she noticed I liked and didn't like, and then went to find more dresses based on this. Nothing was too much trouble and I tried on veils and tiaras too. There was no pushing or obligation to buy, I was given information about a dress I fell in love with and was told I can just ring or pop in to come and try it on again. My family who came with me fell in love with the shop too, we all had the most amazing time and it made a special experience absolutely perfect. Thank you so much, I can't wait to come back in and try on what I hope will be "the one"!

Jade from Essex

Amazing experience! It was nice having a store stock a curvy size in the dresses to try on without being pulled into something your hanging out of. Customer service was outstanding & really understood what I wanted. I wanted a princess ballgown style dress & this is the first shop that stocked more than 1 or 2 and I even said yes to the dress on the day!

Amazing service from start to finish. I never felt pressured or pushed into purchasing a dress. Vicki could not do more for me and as she was so lovely I found my perfect dress and bought it.

Ines is possibly the most gorgeously warm and lovely human being I have ever met. Truly brilliant and not phased by a difficult, complex alteration which would have some seamstresses stress out.

The service i received was excellent, Amanda was welcoming, we had coffee and biscuits , the only shop that offered us this. I tried several dresses on, one of the dresses was lovely, but I eventually found my dress in another shop. I would highly recommend the service I received at alta costura.

I didn't know what I was looking for when I visited and being 4'11 and only having 11 weeks until our wedding I thought I would struggle. But I was wrong. The ladies here made my appointment so at ease I tried on lots of dresses until I put the "one" on. Cant thank Sarah enough for helping me smile and get excited.

Thank you so much to Sarah! She made me and my family feel so comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived. I was not expecting to buy my dress the day of my consultation but I was not made to feel unwelcome at any point. Sarah listened to my concerns and we ended up with two dresses I fell in love with. Thank you so much Alta! xx

Joanna was an absolute delight! i came on my own randomly to try some dresses on, she was so good at giving her opinion when it was needed and giving me advice, she was kind, friendly but professional! made me feel completely at ease, i couldnt believe she hadnt been there very long, she is an absolute credit to your store, even though we were both so hot she had a huge smile on her face the whole time! she wasnt pushy, she was honest, i had a lovely experience because of her.

Emma jade was so lovely. She gave me brilliant advice, listened to what I wanted and helped me find my perfect dress. I felt so at ease with her and really enjoyed my time because it felt so easy and like there was no pressure on me. I was given her undivided attention for my session, which was wonderful, and the area for family to set is great as it feels like your own little space. All of the ladies there on the day were wonderful and happy, which made our visit delightful. So happy to have found my dress with alta!

I am SO happy that I chose Alta Costura for my wedding dress! Everyone has been so lovely, and the customer service has been amazing! After having a little hiccup and needing to get a second dress, the staff were wonderful and amazing at putting my mind at ease. I’ve received honest advice which has been brilliant. The friendliness and warmth of the staff have made this whole process feel so much more than just a wedding dress shopping experience. The wedding dress was the bit I was dreading but staff at Alta Costura have completed changed that and it has become one of my favourite parts of planning my wedding! Thank you so much!

I was a bit anxious about shopping for my dress and this was my first time in a wedding dress shop even though my wedding is in 7 months. As soon as we arrived Jo made us all feel so welcome, she listened to what style I wanted and nothing was too much trouble to her, she was so helpful finding me a dress that she thought i'd like. She made me feel comfortable and at ease and I was able to say yes to my dress on my first trip! So glad I booked my app here! Thank you so much Jo you made my dress experience so much better :) xxx

Thank you so much for all your help choosing my dress! Based on my questionnaire, my consultant knew exactly what to show me and found me my perfect dress. I felt free to try on lots of different styles,which confirmed my choice. The whole process (ordering, timings and fittings) was explained clearly; all the staff were lovely and made me feel really comfortable. I'm really looking forward to seeing my dress when it arrives. Thank you so much!

What can I say! This place is amazing! Being a curvy bride I was nervous at what to expect but saw them on Facebook and thought I’d give it a go. Victoria was amazing at both my first appointment and my second. She made me feel at ease and reassured me all the way right through to me purchasing a dress on my second appointment. Looking forward to trying on my actual dress when it arrives! Thank you so much for making me feel at ease, beautiful and not pressured one bit.
