Hi there,

I am emailing you in regards to a great experience I had earlier on in the year with one of your lovely employees called Monica. If I could recommend anyone, it would be Monica. She helped me sift through so many dresses without pressure until I found the dress of my dreams. Not only was she friendly and caring, but her skill level was clearly evident. Monica made me feel very comfortable and at ease, especially with the stress that can come with wedding planning. It was very easy to talk about any concerns I had with my dress, and I was given various solutions to create my vision. To me this was a clear indication of her experience and professionalism. I knew I was in good hands. She altered my wedding dress to perfection. It looks and feels as though it was made for me, which is an amazing feeling. It was a pleasure to work with Monica and Astra Bridal.

Dear Esti, Kendall-Leigh and Ilyese,

As we are emerging from one of the most amazing days of our lives, we wanted to pause and acknowledge your incredible contribution to this special event. We were blown away by your attention, care, interest and encouragement as my daughters and I shared this significant moment together with you… and to walk out with the dress of Amy's dreams was incredible! Your interest in terms of asking about Amy and Joshua’s relationship, their engagement, where the wedding was going to be held etc... helped to make Amy feel like such a princess and I am so grateful. The card and personal touch that arrived with the ordered veil was the icing on the cake.

Your dress was perfect, Amy looked and felt stunning and the day itself was simply spectacular. THANK YOU!

Warm regards

Cathryn Bell and Amy Archibald

Hi Ilyese,

I want to thank you for your help and enthusiasm.

We went to a number of different bridal shops looking at dresses and their hospitality and helpfulness did not match yours, I was very looked after by the ladies at Astra. And I can’t believe I met someone that had the same love of Lord of the Rings as me!

Once again, thank you for making my wedding dress shopping experience a great one. It will stick with me for a very long time.

All the best,

Georgie xx

I came in very scared of the dress shopping process. The Hamilton team, and in particular Dee, made this the MOST pleasant shopping experience I have ever had. Dee is personally invested in each and every one of her brides and you cant get much better than that. She has answered any and all questions I have had and made me feel like the princess that every bride wants to feel like!!

I need to express how amazing Astral Bridal Symonds Street is. I have never been more comfortable or made to feel so special in this store. I had visited quite a few bridal stores before this and nothing compared to this experience. Ladies please shell out and do the $125 exclusive VIP session. It is well worth the money. The store itself is gorgeous and comfortable. Where do I get started on the staff?! Kendall-Leigh and Ilyse were amazing! They took care of everything and made me feel like a bride. Leading up to the appointment there was clear and open communication so what I liked was available. Then when I decided to sleep on it and I wasn't sure of my decision, they allowed me time to revisit to be double sure and then I got all the feels and found my dress. I cannot thank Astra Bridal, Kendall-Leigh and Ilyese enough.

Special mention to Kendall-Leigh, as a bridal consultant, she makes you feel like your friend and provides amazing advice! Ladies this is where you need to get your dress!!!

I was about to give up but you put my spirits up and made me and my family so happy and you found me the dress of my dreams!!!!!! I highly recommend Astra Bridal Auckland. They didn't judge on my size or anything, they just wanted me to be happy and to LOVE my dress and I do!!! So thank you thank you thank you!!!
