Brides of Winchester is located in Hampshire in Winchester's city centre at the top of the High Street. The boutique is 5-10 minutes walk from the train station - a direct line to London Waterloo, and the boutique itself is adorned with dresses everywhere you look. Brides of Winchester's designers are chosen for their unrivalled expertise and beautiful gowns, appealing to those who care passionately that their dress not only looks and feels amazing, but is also exquisitely made.

Brides of Winchester carefully handpick their dress designers for their own individual styles so that brides have a wide choice of styles and fabrics. From sand-washed silks and soft tulles of Charlie Brear to the traditional English designs and contemporary twists of Sassi Holford, there is sure to be a designer at Brides of Winchester to suit you.


Established in 2010, Brides Of Winchester is owned by Laura Ward who is passionate about supporting UK designers. Laura was prompted to start up her enterprise after frustrated attempts to find a high-quality, UK-designed bridal gown for her own wedding.

Laura previously worked as a wedding organiser in London and country house hotels. This has helped her develop her business ethos, which is to provide "truly exceptional customer service with exclusively handmade dresses, designed and made in Britain."

Brides Of Winchester showcase selected examples of creations from many celebrated, highly-regarded UK designers, including:-

Suzanne Neville's contemporary bridal couture designs feature structured bodices, each made from the finest of silks and hand embroideries from London.

Wedding Dress Selection Service

Brides Of Winchester recommend that you begin looking for your wedding dress eight or nine months before your big day. They offer an initial no-obligation one-to-one appointment to discuss your ideas and themes so that you're not overwhelmed by choice.

Selection Appointments

Once you have established a fairly good idea of your ideal gown, you can book a selection appointment to try on a suitable range of dresses in a fun and calm atmosphere, with the benefit of the unbiased opinions and tips of the knowledgeable boutique staff.


Brides Of Winchester stock hand-made gowns that range between £1300 and £4000. In addition, if you have a lower budget but want a gorgeous designer dress, you can ask about samples, which they stock in sizes 10-16 and you can take away on the day.


All of the dresses are hand-made for your particular measurements, backed up by their full made-to-measure service. A dress in your chosen style of the correct size will be ordered, and once it arrives the boutique's seamstress will supervise your first fitting.

    I got married and my dress came from BoW, and wow what a dress! I didn't really have a clue what I was looking for in a dress let alone have an idea of what it might look like! The ladies at BoW were so helpful and I knew I had picked the right shop right from the beginning. I tried on about ten different dresses and nothing was too much trouble, even my indecisiveness!
    We always felt welcome every time we visited and all questions were answered honestly, professionally and with utmost care and attention. In the end I went for a unique dress changing the top, matching the lace to the skirt and combining them both into one dress. I loved it! I adored wearing it and never wanted to take it off! I wish I could wear it to work!! I can't thank the ladies at BoW enough for my gorgeous dress and will send more professional photos once I get them!

    Laura and the team at BoW are simply amazing. They were fantastic from the minute I walked through the BoW door to the wedding day. My dress was perfection and thank you to BoW for stocking it!!!! I felt so honoured to be a BoW bride and wear the stunning Melody on the best day of my life. I would highly recommend this boutique to everyone!

    These ladies are the best! They made the whole experience magical. I had the pleasure of having the gorgeous Emma as my seamstress and she helped me choose the stunning "Gracious" dress by the very talented Nicola Anne (luckily it was a designer day at BOW so I got the chance to meet Nikki). The whole process of choosing the dress, fittings and also getting the most amazing tiara and umbrella (honestly girls - tiara's and a heart shaped umbrella is the way forward!) went so well - I wish I could do it all the time. Gorgeous dress - gorgeous ladies!
