“Astral understands the female form and how to make a woman look and feel special in a dress with her cutting skills” - Julien MacDonald

Established 14 years ago, luxury wedding dress designer Astral Sundholm-Hayes is the real jewel of the wedding world with her elegant and timeless designs. Having graduated in fashion design from Chelsea and then Winchester College of Art, Astral has created an emporium of the most exquisite dresses at her Richmond boutique.

The new store is classic and timeless, designed in neutral tones as not to detract from the collections on show. The ground floor is the boutique area where via prior appointment excited brides to be and their party can try on dresses or discuss designs on a one to one basis with owner and designer Astral Sundholm-Hayes.

An elegant black metal staircase you up to another show space for the collection and is also used for fittings etc. Circa Brides prides itself on their support of British craftsmanship and are proud to emphasise the fact that all of these beautiful creations are made in England.

Circa Brides Hollywood Collection

Luxury Bridal emporium Circa Vintage Brides launches their collection of beautiful and glamorous wedding dresses. Created by designer Astral Sundholm-Hayes, the range combines her wonderful design knowledge and skill in crafting dresses that exquisitely fit the female form.

Inspired by Hollywood movie stars of the 20’s, 30’s 40’s & 50’s, the collection sees names such as Ava, Vivienne, Grace, Greta and Marilyn taking centre stage. Designed using heavyweight silk satin, vintage lace, silk crepe, silk georgette, silk duchess satin and silk taffeta each piece is the epitome of elegance.

There is a dress for every excited bride within the collection including Ava, a 1940’s classic style silk crepe full length gown that features an “all-in-one” Kimono style top covering shoulders and arms with a slightly open back set into a beautiful wide quilted waist band. Below the waist band a full bias cut skirt drapes to the ground.

To compliment the dresses, specially commissioned accessories including jewellery and garters is also for sale at the boutique and online at

“I am absolutely thrilled with the launch of the Circa Vintage Bride boutique, it’s my dream shop and we give the brides-to-be the most enjoyable experience in creating the dress of their dreams”. Designer, Astral Sundholm-Hayes
