It is with great sadness and sorrow that we are announcing the hardest decision we have ever had to make.  After 25 years in business, Bellissima is closing it’s door for the last time at the end of September.

We have been working tirelessly over the last 6 months but have been unable to negotiate a new lease under the terms we feel we need for the business to suceed in the future and with the economic climate still looking very uncertain for the next few years we believe it is the right thing to do.

We have tried to make sure that we have contacted all the brides that this affects directly – please accept our sincere apologies if we have missed you and do get in touch as soon as possible.

We have worked extremely hard with our designers and none of our brides will lose out and their dresses – everyone will receive their chosen gown at no extra cost to themselves.

As we start to wind down the business, there are going to be some amazing dresses available at sale prices, please feel free to come along and view the dresses over the next few weeks, if you are interested in purchasing a sample gown.

We are now open only 3 days a week, which are Monday, Friday and Saturday. You can make an appointment via email


This sale will mark the End of an Era.  We don’t think there is many people will remember Holcombe Mews without Bellissima being there.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a part of our journey.  To Nicola & Suzanne who started the business; to our seamstresses  Roz, Eileen and Christine who have worked some miracles over the years; to Debbie who worked with us if only for a short time; to our designers who have supplied us with some stunning dresses; but mostly to our customers.  You have given us some wonderful memories that will be with us forever; some sad, some funny, some extremely stressful but mostly very, very fond and happy ones – thank you.

Please help us to send Bellissima out on a high by liking and sharing our page.  This way brides to be can take advantage of some of the remarkable dresses we have available in the sale.

Thank you, from all of us at Bellissima xx
