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.

  • Hi Leti

    I know it was a while ago now but just a quick note to say thank you for all your help leading up to our wedding day on 20 January, I really appreciate the support. The dress was perfect on the day, I am really happy with it.

    I took the jacket off for the first dance and surprised people with a "change in outfit"! 

    I lost quite a bit of weight the couple of months before the wedding, Wendy and Tom in New Market did a great job taking it in, I recommend them. 

    All the best and take care!
