Brides on Thorndon – Since 1999

“Bridal wear is what we do best and with pleasure. We do our utmost to ensure the best quality, value and service for our brides, and make certain our brides dresses are matched perfectly for their special day”.

Brides on Thorndon was started in 1999, originally located at street-level at 219 Thorndon Quay, by the current owner and operator Jillian.

In early 2003, Jill moved Brides on Thorndon across the road, off street-level, to Level One, 220 Thorndon Quay, to a more spacious and elegant show room.

And most recently, at the end of 2011, Jill moved Brides On Thorndon, downtown to the CBD of Wellington, in to stunning new showroom, with beautiful window displays, on the corner of Customhouse Quay and Brandon St.

We are proud to be Wellington’s stockists of beautiful collections from designers such as Pronovias of Barcelona, Martina Liana, and for the more price conscious bride, we have gorgeous collections from Essense of Australia, Venus, and Stella York.

We have specially selected all our designs and styles to ensure we have a wide range of gowns for every bride and her personality. Our designer gowns are sourced from all over the world, from Spain, France and America to Australia and of course New Zealand.

We also have a selection of hire gowns (please enquiry in store), which we ensure are kept in the highest condition. Annually, we hold a sale of stock showroom gowns to allow us to keep our designs fresh and up-to-date!

As well as our range of bridal gowns we have a beautiful selection of bridesmaids and evenings gowns and bridal accessories, including veils, lingerie, shoes and jewellery.

 “From the team at Brides on Thorndon, we hope to be able to help you find your dream gown for your special day”.
