Allum & Sidaway Bridal Pre-Booking Appointments


We are so thrilled to be able to welcome you back to our Bridal boutique soon! You can book an appointment using the link below! Read on for more info about our changes and how your appointment will work….

We all know that shopping at the moment for your dream dress is going to be a little different from what you imagined. Don’t worry; we are here to guide you through it.

Firstly, it’s important to say that we’ve considered every aspect of a wedding dress appointment and have implemented measures to make you and Philippa (our lovely Bridal manager) as safe and comfortable as possible, so you can get down to the serious business of trying our gorgeous gowns without stress. We don’t want to take any risks and we don’t want you to ever feel uncomfortable; that’s why we’ll have protective equipment on, and available to you.

When you arrive, we’ll invite you to use our hand sanitiser, then pop a pair of gloves on. We also have face masks for you to wear when in the changing area (when you are likely to be closest to Philippa as she helps you into the gowns) or throughout the appointment if you prefer. Philippa will be wearing PPE too.

In order to follow government advice, we ask that only you attend your appointment. As soon as guidance changes on that, and we feel it is safe to do so, we’d love to extend the welcome back to your friends and family. In the meantime, we'd be happy to help you share your appointment with your Bride Tribe! We can set up a zoom, take a video or enable a facetime; whatever method you like!

Finally, we will be limiting our number of appointments, allowing time in between for the dresses to be steamed if needed, as an extra precaution to ensure that our gowns will be absolutely safe and worry free for you to handle and to try on.

Sound good to you? Click the link to request an appointment now! If you have any questions, please email [email protected],  contact Philippa through our social media channels like Facebook and Instagram, or use the appointment form below.


We are also offering video appointments from July!

We believe that through virtual consultations, we can offer the same excellent service in the comfort of your own home. We can use your preferred platform- Zoom, WhatsApp, Facetime; whatever suits you. You can meet Philippa, our fabulous Bridal manager, and chat face to face (Or screen to screen!) about the styles you are looking for. Philippa can then introduce you to our dress collections, show you specific gowns, veils & accessories and explain their beautiful features. Then, if you like what you see, you can book a personal appointment to visit the store. Sound great to you? Simply email [email protected], DM us on FacebookInstagram to request a video call, or use the appointment form below and ask for a video call.

We hope to see you in store or online soon!
