"Quite simply the best bridal shopping experience ever!"

A once in a lifetime shopping experience.

VIP customer service.  Evenings too. Your own private consultations.
Your own personal Stylist.  Where it’s all about you and only you!

Now that you’re planning your wedding day you’re probably feeling a number of things.  You may have some really strong ideas about how you want to look on your big day.  You may know exactly what kind of bride you want to be or you may feel totally clueless about where to start!  Great news! Whatever you’re feeling and whatever your wedding dress dreams are, it’s fine, we’re here to help.

You see we’re actually a little bit different….Spread over four floors and offering six individual and private consultation rooms.  At our unique bridal shop you can feel completely pampered and relax in total privacy with your very own style adviser and complimentary refreshments whilst searching for your dream wedding day outfits. Offering a friendly, professional and consultative service, Abigail’s Collection is regarded ‘a must visit’ for bridalwear, bridesmaid dresses, Mother of the Bride outfits, Menswear hire and menswear made to measure suits.  Over the years (proudly) we’ve picked up a tonne of awards and (even more proudly), this year our Menswear business won Menswear Retailer of the Year for the whole of the UK!  An amazing achievement and one that we are all exceptionally proud of.

We have a seriously fabulous range of wedding and bridesmaid dresses ready for you to enjoy trying in a variety of sizes from size 8-36, so whatever your shape, size and budget we’re confident that we can help you to look and feel a million dollars!  We’re often told that our affordable bridesmaid dress collection and the many different colours available are the very best in town and our brides love the fact that we can match the exact bridesmaid dress colours in with the menswear suit accessories and neckwear too.

Our ‘lads pad’ style menswear hire department is pretty awesome; our ’Grooms Rooms’ feature complimentary beer fridges and mini DVD plasmas which keeps the Guys entertained during their fittings. We’re delighted to offer our fantastic menswear hire service or, for the more discerning customer, a bespoke made to measure suit service.  And after much demand; we introduced our luxury Mother of The Bride department. So now the Mum’s can relax and enjoy expert styling and Mother of the Bride (or Groom) outfit design advice from the Abigail’s Collection team too!

So; lets get to the point – if you’re planning a wedding or are recently engaged to be married and now looking for a shopping experience that is as special as you are, contact us to arrange your private appointment (evening appointments are also available). With complimentary refreshments, luxury in-store touches and an entirely private one to one styling service you’ll be glad that you visited our special wedding dress shop.

We look forward to welcoming you and being at your service, enjoy your wedding planning….
