Modern wedding dresses in an historic setting
Alexandra Anne Bridal Boutique is set in the Derbyshire village of Pilsley, a stone’s throw from Bakewell and Chatsworth House, and a perfect-day drive out from Sheffield, Chesterfield, Nottingham or Derby.
This isn’t your ordinary high-street bridal shop. Here you’ll find old-world charm mixed with contemporary style.
First the old. Our boutique is in a enchanting 18th century barn conversion looking out over the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park, and only a short walk from the Chatsworth Estate Farm Shop and Cafe.
Now the new. You can expect luxury modern wedding dresses that fit with your own style, plus the bridal accessories to match. Book an appointment and try on your favourite bridal gowns from couture designers like Charlie Brear, Rembo Styling, Jesus Peiro and Eliza Jane Howell.
Whether you’re looking for slinky silks, soft lace, structured satin or floaty tulle, we can help.
Bridal Dress Shopping with the Personal Touch
We’re a young team full of wedding dress ideas. We’ve worked in London, Milan, Barcelona and New York, soaking up all the expert knowledge we can when it comes to bridal fashion and design.
Then we set up Alexandra Anne here in Derbyshire to take all the stuffy pretence out of buying a wedding dress, and to offer a friendly, relaxed and attentive service to all our brides-to-be.
It’s high-end bridal wear with heart, no nonsense, and a few laughs along the way.
We offer three different ways to buy your wedding dress:
Made to Order – we order your dress and the designer makes it in a standard size for you.
Made to Measure – we take select body measurements and the dress is tailor-made to them by the designer.
Off the Peg – we offer sample or discontinued dresses (often only tried on a few times) for you to buy and take away at a discount.
We understand how important your wedding day is. Our team are here to talk through your wedding dress ideas and answer any questions you might have.
You’re more than welcome to bring along photos, mood boards or that precious ideas folder you’ve been keeping under the bed – we love to hear about it all!
Then comes the fun part: trying out the wedding dress styles you’ve been thinking about, and possibly some you’ve not considered before.
So bring your family and friends, escape the city, take in some fresh country air (and maybe some Bakewell tart), and let us help you find the wedding dress of your dreams.
