After going to 8 different dress shops all over Essex after the moment I walked into Bellissima I don’t know why I didn’t come here first! The service was amazing and there were so many dresses to look at! Jade was amazing and helped me to find my perfect dress and veil very quickly considering I had been pretty fussy(!) and Jackie helped to make it fit perfectly. My dress and veil were stunning and I wouldn’t have found them without Bellissima so thank you! xx

Having visited a few bridal shops before my appointment at Bellissima, I was blown away by the number of dresses they had to offer. All the staff I came in contact with were nothing but friendly, helpful and full of support and advice; especially Amy who I mainly dealt with. Unlike in other bridal shops, I didn’t feel rushed or pressured in to making a decision then and there. With such a vast and beautiful array of dresses with wonderful staff, I would not hesitate to recommend Bellissima to any prospective bride.



I visited a few different bridal shops before choosing my dress at Bellissma Weddings, it was by far the best wedding shop. All the team were so helpful and no question was too silly to ask. From choosing the dress style that suited me best, to finding the right accessories and fitting the dress perfectly to me they were amazing. Thank you for making me feel like a princess and making my wedding even more special!  Laura Edmunds xxx



A fantastic team who genuinely go the extra mile to make your experience personal. Couldn’t recommend them more. Thank you for helping me pick the most amazing wedding dress and veil. xx

I was recommended the shop by my friend who had previously bought her dress from here. I am glad I booked an appointment because the service from the booking right through to the collection of my dream dress was perfect. Everything was so organised and their support and advice was amazing especially Amelia. I was able to go back and try on the dress with accessories and had all my fittings there with their amazing specialist seamstresses.

I would recommend to everyone the dresses are amazing and the shop is beautiful thanks again

Absolutely love this shop! It was the only bridal shop I went to but with the amount of choice they have it was clear I didn’t need to go anywhere else. Lucy was absolutely lovely and amazing, she helped me find ‘the one’ at my first appointment. I then took my bridesmaids back to get their dresses and the girls in the shop were so helpful and helped us pick beautiful dresses for them. One of the things I miss most about wedding planning is popping in for dress fittings! I would highly recommend Bellissima!!

Cannot thank the staff enough at Bellissima! From booking the first appointment to picking up my beautiful dress the day before my big day, they staff went out of their way to help. I will be recommending to everyone!!



I got married in Cyprus in may. Bellisima Weddings was the first shop I went to to try bridal dresses on and as soon as I entered I knew I’d find the one! The team there are amazing and so helpful. Within the hour I had chosen my dream dress. All thanks to them I felt amazing on my wedding day. Will highly recommend to all future brides!

My family travelled down from Scotland for the day to visit this shop with me. I’d picked out a few in advance and told my fitter Karen that I liked one in particular. She kept it a secret and snuck it in, it WAS the one because the tears began when I put it on and the reactions from my family confirmed it for me. Karen was lovely, very honest too! I found the whole experience very comfortable, and I had been worried about the stripping down part. Professionals! I go back at the end of February for my first fitting, Santorini Wedding in June 2018.

The girls at the shop are absolutely lovely and ready to help. Got my dress there and got the alterations done there by Jackie who was amazing. She made sure the dress was perfect. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you

My experience of wedding dress shopping at Bellissima was incredible. The lovely Amelia was so helpful, calming and just generally a joy to be around! I had my eye on a dress before my appointment but still tried on a few others to rule them out. I also got my bridesmaid dresses from Bellissima, I wasn't exactly sure on the style but it didn't take long for Amelia to find a dress that suited both my bridesmaids and my wedding theme perfectly! You'd be mad not to go to Bellissima to find your perfect wedding and bridesmaid dresses

I cannot thank Bellisima enough! From the moment I walked into the shop for the first time I was made to feel so comfortable and I bought my dress there and then, I had that moment and Just knew it was the one, Jade was so helpful! I felt like and absolute princess on my day and have even taken it back to the shop for it to be cleaned and boxed.

Had my final fitting today, all the girls in the shop are amazing, so friendly and helpful and make you feel at ease. Nothing is too much bother. Marianna has done my dress alterations. We had to make a few changes and I was getting a bit stressed but she was so reassuring and calming and said it doesn’t matter if you have to come here every week we will make your dress perfect. I tried it on today and I wanted to cry, it was perfect, I could not wish for a better dress that fits more perfectly. Thank you to you all for such a pleasant experience. Would recommend to any bride. 



I was recommended Bellissima Weddings by a few of my friends who had also got their dresses from the shop. This was the first and only shop I visited! I was absolutely blown away by the amazing dresses and service from Amy, I said yes to the dress on my first appointment and over a year later the day finally came when I got to wear it for real! All the girls in the shop are so lovely and the dresses are amazing! Highly recommend to anyone looking!
