We are based in the North East of England and London however, we offer a national and international service with brides across the globe, from as far afield as Australia, Dubai and LA.
Our ethos is simple… One You, One Day, One Dress.
We are here to help each of our brides develop the wedding dress of their dreams. Our design team has years of bridal experience and we love nothing more than the excitement of developing a new design. Although some people may take inspiration from some of our own collection, they always personalise their dress so that it is truly unique.
We have helped a diverse range of clients with every style of wedding dress, from traditional to contemporary, and vintage right through to Gothic. Each dress is as unique and individual as the bride themselves. We offer a range of colours to choose from so if you have your heart set on something different, like a black wedding dress, we are just the people to speak to. Each gown comes with an inbuilt corsets/bra’s to offer the best possible structure and support and every dress is created with pride, from the very first sketches right through to the finished dress.
We source some of the best fabrics from around the world, from satin’s and silks, to chiffon’s, taffeta and organza’s. Recently, we have noticed a huge increase in brides turning their back on the traditional white wedding gown in favour of a more modern dress that can be worn time and time again. Vintage inspired wedding dresses are also in huge demand with us taking inspiration from classic eras.
Working small, time is on our side
Something we take pride in is our turn round time. Unlike most bridal shops, we do not rely on a 6 month ordering programme and can turn a dress around in month… less on some occasions. We welcome last minute brides and brides who have had to move their wedding day forward. Whatever the reason, each bride receives the same level of service.
Whatever your requirements, Grace Philips are here to help you realise your vision, whilst keeping the price affordable.

With the advances in technology, distance is no longer an obstacle. We can offer appointments which include a face to face consultation and some of our brides have travelled over 300 miles to visit us personally. We have liaised and consulted with brides on the other side of the world setting up skype conference calls or a detailed telephone conversation, both of which work exceptionally well. The end results are always the same, a happy bride, with their dream fulfilled.
We pride ourselves on not only our design ability and achieving what you are looking for in a dress but also our customer service. It is important to us that each bride feels like a princess and it is our aim that the customer journey is trouble free, with every detail taken care of.
