About Us

The experience…‘We would say we are the friendliest and most patient around.  We try out utmost to fulfil a bride’s every request and treat everyone as an individual…’

In the beginning…

Brides at Waterfields was established in 1992 in Higher Union Street in Torre in Torquay. As the business grew and the reputation spread, the shop has seen generations of brides, prom girls, and bridesmaids. This warm and friendly boutique now houses amazing collections of bridal gowns suitable for weddings home or away.

Mother and daughter duo, Heather and Gemma have many years of experience in Bridal and retail between them. Gemma has tried and tested many of the bridal designers and she has whittled her choices over the years to ensure the best quality materials, the most flattering cut and fit and with the most gorgeous detailing but keeping value for money in mind.
