Kendall-Leigh is a bit of a bridal expert! She went on from her degree in South Africa to get a certificate in wedding planning. From there came the realisation that her love of gowns was the best way forward. So ever since then she has been immersed in the industry. We are so lucky to have her managing the Auckland City team and giving the brides there the absolutely service they deserve.

What our brides say about Kendall-Leigh

  • I said yes to my dress at Astra Bridal Symonds st today and I just want to express what great service I had from all the staff there, especially Kendal-Leigh who was my consultant. She was genuinely so helpful and listened to my ideas and concerns as well as making some suggestions. Thanks again for helping me to find my dream dress !

  • I headed to Astra Bridal last weekend with my best woman. We had no idea what we would find or what we should have expected from this experience. Needless to say we were absolutely blown away by Kendall-Leigh and her team on Symonds st.
    Kendall-Leigh was AMAZING!!! The questions she asked put you to ease and the banter was fantastic! You cannot teach that. I have found 2 very strong contenders for the dream dress, non of which would have been possible without your help Kendall. Total star thanks so so much!!

  • 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

  • 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!!!
