|Sunday - Monday||Closed|
Astra North Shore first opened in 2005 in Takapuna, and we moved to our current location in Albany in 2018. As well as a bigger store and more gowns, we also have parking right outside; and as an added bonus our fantastic sister store The Bridal Outlet is right next door. So make sure you leave enough time to have a look in both.
The salon is a gorgeous airy space with big windows and lots of light.
We aren't in a retail precinct so it is a really quiet and relaxing experience.

I just wanted to say thank you for being so kind when I was so stressed, planning a wedding in 5 weeks was a task and a half especially with the dress being such a crucial element! You really helped me relax and get out of my comfort zone and away from the image I had fixed in my head! The dress was just perfect!
I’d just like to thank Chelsea and Leti at the North Shore store for providing myself and my bridal party with such amazing service. From the moment Mum and I walked in the store, Chelsea made us feel so welcome and was incredibly helpful. The gown she showed me was my perfect dress and I fell in love with it the moment I put it on. As I am living in Australia, there was a need for quite a quick turn around but this did not phase Chelsea or Leti and they went the extra mile to ensure my dress was ready by the time I was flying out in 5 days time! I had been to many stores in both Sydney and Auckland, and without a doubt the North Shore Astra Bridal was the best out of all of them. We never felt pressured and were always listened to, allowed to take photos and given plenty of time to decide. After having such a negative experience at another store in Auckland the day before, coming into Astra was a huge sigh of relief for us! Again, thank you so much Chelsea and Leti for being so welcoming and accomodating. You have made me a very happy bride!
The dress was amazing and I honestly felt like Cinderella!Monica you are amazing and I wanted to share these photos with you so you could show off your amazing skills. No one believed me when I told them got the sleeves custom added. To IIlyese and team – you made me feel like I was the important person in the storeThank you and thank you again.
