Congratulations Gina!

Posted on 21 May, 2017 at 11:20

Congratulations to our beautiful bride Gina who got married on the 11th May to David in sunny Sorrento.

Gina came to us in February having only tried on a couple of wedding dresses at another shop that morning. Still having little idea of what style of wedding dress would be best suited and only 3 months until her special day we chatted through a few options before trying a variety of suitable styles.

Gina fell in love with, and said YES to her beautiful bridal gown by our fabulous designers Venus Bridal.

Gina, you looked absolutely stunning on your wedding day, and we wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

All the best,

Allison Louise Bridal x


Exciting News! We have a new label arriving in June

Posted on 15 April, 2017 at 14:25

We are excited to announce we have a new designer arriving at Allison Louise Bridal this June.

These gowns are from world-famous designer Demetrios. Working with delicate, sensual and fine detailing, he has created dresses that are lyrical, shapely and imbued with a sense of purity. "I like things to look light and delicate", the designer explained, "as though the dress has been blown together."



Extraordinary fabrics are the basis of the Cosmobella Collection, which encompasses styles ranging from the clean and unadorned to the elaborate and intricately worked. The result is a gown that follows the curves of the body naturally. Opulent but thoughtful, full of details that enchant the eye and compliment, rather than upstage, the modern-day bride.

We are extremely excited to receive this new collection and with prices ranging from £1,000 to £1,500 these italian designed wedding dresses are the perfect choice for every bride.

Keep an eye on our website and facebook page for updates regarding this collection and images of what is to come!

The simplest way to handle spring showers at your wedding

Posted on 12 March, 2015 at 13:15

Planning an outdoorsy spring wedding? Make sure you read this article from WEDDING MAGAZINE

So you've organised your dream spring wedding: the in-season flowers, pretty pastel details and seasonal favours are all in-hand, and you're calm and confident that everything is sorted ahead of the big day.

However, there's one detail that can make a big difference to your celebration: the rain. 

You can't control the weather but you can control how it affects you and your guests. So, if your wedding day has an outdoors element to it, make sure you stock up on umbrellas beforehand.

Real couple Sara and Shiv married in an outdoors celebration, and used a box of parasols to help protect their guests from the searing Californian sunshine. Follow their lead with umbrellas (or parasols - or both!) by creating cute, personalised tags for each umbrella and leaving them by the garden entrance for guests to grab as needed.

Come rain or shine, your wedding guests will thank you!

It's been a while...

Posted on 10 March, 2015 at 17:00

Hello to all that is reading this,

Well it has been an incredibly long time since I last wrote a blog, and so much has happened!

Firstly, you may note that we have had a name change, we are no longer Bella-Brides but now Allison Louise Bridal Studio, its a long story as to why the name change but basically we are now able to ship all across the UK without clashing with other bridal studios throughout the UK that share the same name.

So, nearly 1600 followers on facebook and not even a year of trading. I am so impressed and extremely happy that things are going in the right direction, and with lots of lovely 2015 and 2016 brides having purchased their dress and accessories through us then that is even more reason to be buzzing with excitement.

Lot's of new updates will be posted over the next few days. Please feel free to leave positive and helpful comments if you wish to and if there is anything I can do to help, then just get in touch.

I hope to see you soon.

Married :-)

Posted on 26 May, 2014 at 20:10


I am now a married women, and over the moon to finally call the man I love my husband.

We had an amazing time, the weather was a little worrying first thing but it soon cleared up and we had a truly wonderful time celebrating our big day with our close family and friends.

After 10 lovely days in the sun it is back to reality (and this cold english weather) with a bump, no more cocktails at lunchtime :-)

The studio is now open again and appointments are filling up which is fantastic...we are also preping for the wedding fayre being held on Sunday 8th June at De Bradelei Mill, I will post more info on that soon.

If you wish to make an appointment please get in touch and I will come back to you asap. If you send an enquiry via the online form please ensure you check your junk email if you do not receive a response within a day or two as emails can sometimes end up in there.

Hope to see you soon.
