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.

Lisa was amazing! She made it so simple, listened to what I thought I wanted, and gently helped me see other options that worked so well for my body shape and style. Thank you so much!

I had a luxe appointment at Astra Bridal Wellington with Lisa to find my wedding gown. I cannot recommend Astra enough, they have an amazing range of beautiful gowns, in a range of sizes. We were provided a lovely platter and bubbles. Not only did I have so much fun trying on gowns, I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the guidance on how to choose a gown <3 For anyone looking for a gown for their special day, don’t hesitate to book with Astra Bridal in Wellington <3

I had the most wonderful time at Astra Bridal when looking for my wedding dress in September. Lisa went out of her way to help me find my dress; pulling every possible option that fit what I had in mind, while also pulling a few extra wildcards that made it a really tough choice! I had a slightly larger entourage, but the team made sure everyone was comfortable and also had the opportunity to pull a dress they liked. Lisa was incredible at making me feel comfortable and confident, while also being honest with me about each of the dresses and which ones could better suit my personality and our venue. I felt amazing in every option, and still managed to find THE dress - 10/10 would recommend looking for your wedding dress at Astra Bridal.
