The event’s hours are:
Friday 10.00 – 4.30
Saturday 9,30 – 5.00
Sunday 10.30 – 2.00

Do I need an appointment?

Yes, this is one of our ‘By Appointment Only’ events. It means that you’ll know exactly what time to come in order to have our full attention. You’ll be able to look at the latest Essense of Australia wedding dresses and try them on.

Please note: because the event is so popular, please arrive no more than 5 minutes early. Also, don’t be late – you’ll miss out because we’ll be fully booked and your appointment is in our diary for a fixed time. We’ve got just 90 minutes to try out all of the dresses you like – it flies by!

Will There Be A Queue?

No, because it is strictly by appointment only and we ask brides not to arrive earlier than 5 minutes before their appointment.

If I Arrive Early, Where Can I Go?

Thrapston is a lovely market town and we can recommend the tea-room on the high-street, as well as The Bridge Hotel at the other end of town.

Can I Order One of the New Dresses?


How Long Will My Dress Take To Be Made?

We receive your dress about 3 months after you place your order and pay 50% towards it.

Do I Need To Pay In Full When I Order My Dress?

You have three main options.

  1. You can set up a payment plan to pay for your dress in instalments, starting with a deposit of £100
  2. You can pay a 50% deposit and we’ll order your dress immediately (most of our brides do this)
  3. You can pay in full for your dress if you would prefer to deal with it that way
