Located in the heart of Clacton-on-Sea, on Old Road, this fabulous wedding dress boutique stocks an ample range of designer gowns and accessories for all the wedding party. Alterations are made on-site in Beautiful Brides' workshop, which means these world-class wedding dresses come with the added bonus of an experienced seamstress to ensure that you'll have the perfect fit.

Ranging from the elegant Eternity Bridal to Margaret Lee, and even the odd sample sale, there's plenty on offer for a discerning bride-to-be. Beautiful Brides provides for the rest of the wedding party too. From bridesmaid gowns to formalwear for the Mother of the Bride/Groom, plus menswear courtesy of Cameron Ross Men's hire - it's all covered under one roof. Add to this a range of other associated services such as shoe and handbag dyeing and bridal gown cleaning, and you have your ideal one-stop-shop.


Beautiful Brides comprises a close-knit team of wedding and customer service experts. Business proprietor Debbie Clover fell in love with the very same shop when she visited years ago to choose her own gown, thereupon deciding to acquire the boutique!

Jemma Keyes is the manager at Beautiful Brides, and you will most likely be working with her and taking her invaluable advice on choosing the right dress and coordinating it with the other wedding party-wear. Sylvia Heley runs the onsite workshop and acts as principal seamstress, and finally Kayley Finch helps out in the showroom and is also improving seamstress skills in the workshop.

The Wedding Party

You can dress your bridesmaids in matching gowns which complement your own, provide an outfit for the Mother of the Bride or Groom, complete with fascinator, and source top-quality menswear hire courtesy of Beautiful Brides' Cameron Ross Collection.

Alteration Service

Beautiful Brides' workshop is located on site, so your chosen gown can easily be tweaked to fit your body exactly, and whether it's adjusting to weight loss or gain, building up shoulders or lowering necklines, there's nothing head seamstress Sylvia can't handle!

Dress Cleaning

If you want to keep your dress after your big day, then it's very important that you get it cleaned properly if you want it to last any length of time. Beautiful Brides can provide this service, and place your gown in a dress box with special acid-free tissue paper.


To complement their comprehensive range of designer wedding dresses and accessories, Beautiful Brides also offer a wedding shoe and handbag dyeing service - so that everything can match your chosen colour scheme. Get in touch for more information.
