At our gorgeous boutique and we believe other than the groom himself, choosing your dress is quite possibly the most important decision you will make whilst planning your wedding.
At Helena Fortley, it’s all about The Dress, and we believe it carries a responsibility all of its own. Infusing you with confidence, complimenting your style and expressing your personality; it has to do the job that no dress has ever done before… make you feel like you are the most beautiful woman to have ever walked this earth.
We believe the pursuit should be one of the most memorable experiences, prior to the actual day itself. Whatever your budget, style or theme, choosing your dress should be relaxed, exciting and magical; it should leave you walking on air and feeling completely indulged.
Your dress is the dress of all dresses, the crème de la crème, what dreams are made of and of course the centrepiece of photos that will live on forever; at Helena Fortley we know, like the groom, it’s got to be… The One.We stock Enzoani, Enzoani Blue, Wtoo, Willowby, Stella York and Freda Bennett.
We also sell a wide range of jewellery by Lily & Rose, large collection of hair accessories and veils. Beatiful range of flower girl dresses and last but not least bridesmaids dresses by Sorella Vita and Eliza & Ethan.

Thank you so very much for making me feel so special. You have a lovely happy attitude and love your shop and it really made me feel so relaxed. The decor of the shop is fantastic! You have such a great selection of dresses it was hard to decide, but you guided me and we managed to find the dress of my dreams!! I can't wait to come back and try it on in a few weeks at my fitting, and pick out all my accessories! Thank you so much xxxxSent on 24/04/2014

Amazing Experience, Amazing Dress
What a lovely shop.Sent on 06/03/2014
This was my first experience at trying on any dresses, but what a great first start. My Mother and i were welcomed by Sally (the owner) and her assistant Katie, who were both so happy and friendly.
The shop is so pretty, with a excellent selection of beautiful dresses, and also a great selection of accessories. We had a coffee and discussed the type of dress that i had in mind, and Sally really took great care to listen to my thoughts, nothing seemed too much trouble, you could tell she really cares about her job and the customer.
We selected a number of dresses to try and went to a private area, which was very luxurious. After trying on two dresses, i found the one, there was no other that could compare, it is stunning, we all had a little cry.
I can't wait to come in and try it on again for the fitting, and to choose some accessories! It was a truely wonderful experience that I will not forget! Thank you Sally and Katie.
I would highly recommend a visit , you will find THE dress!!!
Thanks again, Liz xxx
Thank you so much
All I can say is thank you so much to Sally and her team for helping me find my perfect wedding dress! From the moment I walked into the shop to when I finally collected the dress, everything was perfect and everyone was so helpful and friendly. I wasn't sure I liked my dress on the hanger but Sally insisted I try it on and I'm glad she did because it was the perfect dress for me and it made my now husband cry when he saw me in it so that's a plus! Thank you so much for helping me feel so beautiful on our special day!Sent on 07/12/2017
