At Astra Bridal we seek out the best quality and most exciting gowns and accessories for your wedding day. If you are looking for a wedding dress in the Northshore then look no further than our Albany store.  This Astra Store opened in 2005 in Takapuna but then moved to our current location in 2018.

We don't have one look as we have the fortune to have the space to cover a wide range of tastes.  No matter your wedding style: (be it boho, rustic, modern, princess, elegant) or your wedding look: (be it backless, strapless, ballgown, slim gown, tea length) we have something in store that will surely make your heart sing. 

We also cater for all size ranges with our samples varying from a size 6 to a size 26.  We do our best to ensure every bride gets to have a special bridal experience at Astra Bridal Northshore.

Our staff are trained to give advice on gown fit, colour, fabric, design to suit your body shape and the style of wedding. They are also the most passionate bridal team you will find in the Northshore.  They are well known for their welcoming atmosphere and for not judging any bride on budget and shape.  Speaking of budget, they also have a fantastic sister store The Bridal Outlet right next door.  So kill two bridal stores with one visit!  And you don't have to cross the bridge!

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.

What our brides say about the consultants in the North Shore salon

  • I walked in with my girlfriends not knowing what to expect or even really what I wanted. Liz was truly amazing - she picked the dress and it was perfect. The experience was stress free and Liz knew her stuff. Such a lovely lady and made me feel special! Thanks so much

  • Hello Astra Bridal team

    Thank you for all of your help and excellent service over the past 12 months, and a special thanks to Camille who was absolutely amazing to deal with.

    Our wedding was last Friday and I received so many comment on my beautiful dress.

    Thank you again,

  • I’m the bridesmaid for my best friend's wedding in May this year and a few weeks ago we had only just started looking for a dress. Her days off are Monday and Sunday which happens to be the two days that the Bridal Outlet was closed. I called up Liz at The Bridal Outlet to explain our situation and she was more than willing to open up on Monday, just for us! So we went in and the bride tried on 7 gorgeous dresses that Liz had helped us pick out which matched our budget. Liz helped the bride manoeuvre into each gown and gave sound advice on how each one accentuated certain parts of her figure. You could tell she was very experienced and I can’t say enough of just how lovely and helpful she was throughout the whole process! The patience and kindness of a saint! Thank you Liz!
