The nearest train station is Royston which is a 5 minute drive. Travelling by car there is a large customer car park at the rear of the shop. Click here to get directions to the shop. Feel free to call or email us if you need any advice or have any questions about the styles on our website.

To ensure we offer every bride visiting our boutique the best experience possible we work on an appointment basis. Appointments last for an hour and a half, to two hours, allowing you to relax and enjoy the experience without feeling rushed for time. When you arrive at our boutique you will be greeted by one of our friendly and experienced team members who will take you through to a private fitting room and look after you and your guests from start to finish.
If you are wanting to book a weekend appointment we do ask for a £10 appointment fee, which is redeemable against the purchase of your wedding dress. Appointment fees can be made by card over the phone, or bank transfer at point of booking. Weekends are typically our busiest period, if you would prefer to visit us when it is a little bit quieter we recommend making an appointment for a weekday. Any weekday appointments are FREE from charge.
Should you need to cancel your appointment we ask that you give us as much notice as possible for weekend consultations we require 4 days notice prior to the appointment and we will refund your fee. Unfortunately, without this notice period we are unable to process a refund.
If you are a Mother of the Bride or Bride to be living in the Cambridge or Hertfordshire area you do not need to make an appointment prior to visiting.
We offer a highly personal and friendly service for all our customers and their guests. Finding your wedding dress or mother of the bride outfit is a special and exciting journey.
