Ellis Bridals is a pioneer of luxury British bridal. Established in 1912 in London, Ellis Bridals is now exclusively available in luxury independent boutiques worldwide.
The founder and original designer Ada Ellis honed her craft by creating bespoke dresses for London’s early 20th Century aristocracy. The birth of Ellis Bridals came when on a bright January day in 1910 Ada herself walked down the aisle to marry Sam in the very first Ellis wedding gown. Her distinctive, elegant style struck a chord and word spread fast. Demand grew as brides across England clamoured for an original Ellis Bridals creation. The brand blossomed, carving a place at the forefront of British bridal-wear. Believing that you should work surrounded by what you love, in the 1960s Ada opened her central London Atelier.
Ellis Bridals is now over 100 years old, a century of living heritage that continues to inform and refine the design process. When a bride chooses Ellis Bridals, she chooses a little story. A gown embedded with history, tradition and love.
Our designers represent the traditional english bride and an international vibe. I am passionate about maintaining British craftsmanship in my business with designs from Caroline Castigliano, Freda Bennet and Ellis Bridals, as well as entrusting a long partnership with Enzoani and his bridal collective for over 20 years, with our destination wedding gowns also remaining very popular. You won't find stuffy, formal gowns; we carry ultra chic, sassy and glamorous gowns to an exceptional level.

I went to well over 30 bridal stores before finding Surrey Brides and my dream dress. Having initially contacted the store via email, they were more than accommodating and an appointment was quickly arranged at a time to suit me.

What a great shop! Always dreamed of getting my wedding dress from this shop, having driven past it on the way to school for 5 years. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much.
