Lisa has been involved in bridal since she can remember. Sometimes fitting sewing and designing around raising her children or having another job. When the opportunity came up to combine her passion and a career in the industry she jumped at the chance. It took no time for her to move in to the position of manager and has led the team in Wellington for a number of years. Her expertise in gown construction is fabulous and any bride lucky enough to be with Lisa will receive the benefit of that knowledge. But the construction knowledge is only part of the enthusiasm and love of bridal that Lisa can bring to a bride's experience at Astra.

Astra Bridal was SO amazing!! Could not be happier! Lisa specifically was so lovely, clearly an absolute expert and made the entire process so fun and seamless for me and my family. She was also very flexibly and accommodating when I accidentally stayed a bit (couple of hours, oops) longer than my initial appointment time! 10/10 would definitely recommend to everyone for beautifully designed, affordable wedding dresses <3

Everyone at Astra Bridal were so kind and helpful. Lisa (the stylist I had) was incredible! She helped me figure out what I wanted when I had no idea at all when I arrived for my appointment. I absolutely love my dress and felt amazing even after having a baby 4.5 months before the wedding!!

I had a fantastic experience working with Lisa at Astra Bridal to find my dream gown. Lisa was kind and patient while we made our way through a hefty pile of dresses. She offered words of wisdom and made me so comfortable. Lisa went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and I ended up with my perfect gown. I really recommend Astra, the 90 min slots make it a lot more fun and relaxed and the staff are truly fantastic.
